My Weight Loss Report - Must Read

Hi Friends,

I have come back to this blog after a long time! Just been very busy with my work. The good is that all these years that I have stayed away from this blog, I was researching and experimenting my own diet regime.

My diet has helped many people reduce weight. Honestly I didn't have enough time to exercise. My 9-9 routine is pretty stressful and I simply don't like to go out to exercise during weekend. So I thought if dieting.

There are so many people on the Internet who are gurus of this niche. But how many can you follow? Well, the point is that I got confused after browsing this jargon on weight loss. So I decided to take control and devise my own diet and weight loss regime.

Okay, I am a vegetarian. So maybe this also helps a lot. What I did was that I cut my carbohydrates to the extent that my body started using fats to get energy. In short my program is backed by years of experience, and has been researched extensively, and most importantly, has helped many people to lose weight.

I have documented this in my report on my website at 

This free diet plan is backed by years of extensive research and my personal experience. It is an essential read to anyone who has tried everything and failed to slim...

Hope you enjoy!

Weight Loss - Too Quick!

Day 3: I went to the gym and did some regular exercises like treadmill, cycling and weights (small ones - 1 kg). But I added one more exercise on behest of my friend, which she saw on the net, and this included the Fat Burning Big Ball Workout. The steps are as follows:
  • Lie straight on your back.
  • Put the fitness ball in between your feet.
  • The feet should be placed right in the middle of the fitness ball, on the sides.
  • Now lift your feet along with the fitness ball so that you can pass it to your hands.
  • Take the hands with ball above your head.
  • Now bring it back and pass on to your feet.
  • Repeat the cycle at least 3 times in the beginning.
The exercise was tough for me, but I loved it especially because I felt strain on my thighs, back and abs.

After coming back home I felt hungry and wanted to eat something that would aid in my weight loss endeavor. So  I decided to have buttermilk and boiled egg. Buttermilk contains whey protein which gets quickly absorbed and goes right into your muscles. It was filling and at the same time nutritious.

I Am Becoming Overweight!!

Ever since we have moved to our new place, I have less work to do – guess because my kids are older and don’t demand much of my attention. So all I am left with is my laptop and a few household chores.

Over a past few months, I noticed that my belly is bulging a little, and this worried me a lot – mostly because my old pair of jeans is not fitting me. Whenever I wore them, my belly kind of hanged over the belt. It was too embarrassing especially when I wore shirts that flaunted my figure. Because this time instead of the shape that I was proud of always, my bulge showed – and it showed badly! So I decided to take matter in hands and have started with a small regime devised by me. I started it last week and I am beginning to notice little results. (Well, when you have gained weight, even small results matter and you feel confident that you have taken a step to look good.) Moreover, I am motivated to carry this regime onwards – mostly because I saw results right in the first week. Am I happy!! So I decided that I am going to share it with you all on weekly basis.

Last week:

Day 1: I went to a small party where I met like-minded friends who were interested in losing weight. While all of them wanted to lose weight – they wanted some quick way without interrupting their normal lifestyle. How can this be possible? For example there’s this friend who is a teacher at school and doesn’t want to bulge from her chair while she wants to go for some quick weight loss methods! This simply can’t be...

But, I was lucky and found a friend who shared my level of motivation and actually wanted to shed weight. There was only one problem – she didn’t want to buy any of those expensive regimes offered on the Internet. No Problem! At least she wanted to work out. And that how it started.

Day 2: We decided to go slow on the weight loss routine, and we just went for morning walks. At first I around walked a field of 400 m 4 times. This made me sweat and was an eye opener – MY STAMINA WAS ALSO LOW! 20-25 minutes of walking was a gargantuan task for a person who is not overweight. So if you guys aren’t overweight and make fun of obese people, think twice – you may not be the fit one. Exercises not only make you feel fit, they make you lose weight.

On coming back to home, I decided to eat my regular meal at breakfast, but stopped myself. I am sure I must have burnt at least 100 calories (maybe less) on my first day of waking my body from slumber. Thus I ate something which had less calories and which could get digested easily into my system and at the same time not get converted into stubborn fats. So, I had boiled EGG (70 cal). After a while I again felt hungry, and my stomach rebelled.

I am a freelancer and I have numerous projects at hand all the time. This makes me sit in front of the computer for a long time and honestly I feel hungry after every brainwork I do. Thus I need to feed my brain, too.

I took “lemonize” – my own creation – one glass water + one teaspoon honey + few drops of lemon. I had it and there VIOLA! my stomach was fed for the coming 3-4 hours whereby I didn’t feel hungry at all.

To be continued....

Green Tea and Weight Loss – How it Works

According to some researches conducted green tea can significantly reduce your weight. Green tea is rich in catechins. Catechins are antioxidants and a sub class of flavonoids. Additionally green tea helps in reducing the risk of diseases like Alzheimer’s, and cardio diseases.
So what does green tea do?

1. Green tea speeds up your body’s metabolic activity. As a matter of fact green tea can boost upto 4% of the body’s metabolic rate. The catechins enhance the process of fat oxidation and thermogenesis (rate at which body starts burning calories). This in turn helps in lowering of the body fat.

2. Green Tea helps in regulation of glucose and thereby slows fat absorption with cells. Green Tea acts as a regulator to prevent insulin spikes. Actually catechins suppress the passage of the glucose into the fat cells.

3. Green tea is better than coffee, especially for people who love to have their caffeine but don’t want to add calories. This is why green tea weight loss programs advise not to have coffee which is loaded with cream and sugar.

4. GreenTea may reduce your desire to eat food. According to animal studies, rats were seen to reduce almost 21% of their body weight after they were daily injected green tea extracts for a period of 7 days.

7 Ways to Lose Weight

Losing weight is a very touchy subject and people across the world are fighting with the problem of obesity. Did you know that obesity is the main cause of ailments like strokes, heart diseases, high blood pressure and diabetes? Moreover in case you are planning to have a surgery performed, and if you are obese, you can have problems related to treatments. So why not lose weight fast and solve the root problem of all the miseries in the world. Here are 7 effective Ways To Lose Weight:

1. Diet programs are very popular these days. Atkins diet is one of the most famous one. This diet asks you to eat food in a structured manner and you have to follow the food pyramid in the diet. The diet is catered to both the vegetarians and the non-vegetarians.

2. Many nutritionists are of the opinion that you must have 5-6 meals in a day rather than having 3 full meals. This way you can reduce up to 30% of your actual eating amount. Now that will contribute to a tremendous weight loss. However, people often leave this diet after a few weeks only to gain weight later.

3. Any meal plan is not fully effective unless you exercise. Thus exercising is very important. Not only does it melts your fats, it also helps in strengthening your muscle mass. One of the best exercise is weight training which helps in building your muscle mass and reducing your fats.

4. Have you heard of green weight loss? If you can leave the charm of your air-conditioned car and travel via public transport, you can shed your weight faster. Additionally you save a lot of money and fossil fuel.

5. How about losing weight with the help of natural herbs. Natural herbs contain ingredients which help in increasing the metabolic system of the body which in turn helps in melting the fats. Also ensure that you are taking herbs which have been grown organically.

6. Sometimes we just cannot eliminate the sugar factor from our life. But refined sugar such as corn syrup, sucrose and fructose are the real culprits. So it would be good if you can substitute these with natural sugars like honey, blackstrap molasses and date powder.

7. Bleached white flour products are one of the main causes of weight gain. In this the process of bleaching removes the valuable nutrients and left are the harmful ingredients that create disharmony within our body, thereby making us fat.

Easy Ways To Lose Weight

If you are overweight, it significantly increases your risk of heart diseases, high BP, and diabetes. There is an added disadvantage to being overweight. In case you need surgical operation, your treatments will become difficult. So don't you think you are better off with eating more of vegetables and less of fats? And of course the cardinal rule is to do plenty of exercises along with any diet program. The entire combination will send your weight scale direction to a lesser number. Here are a few foods that you can take into account when you are on a weight loss program:
  1. If you love food with high calorie, opt for one that is a low calorie treat but is tasting as good as high calorie food. For example Lobster contains 83 calories in about 3 ounces. Similarly shrimps contain 60 calories in 12 large sized ones. And did you know that whipped cream contains only 8 calories in a teaspoon? Surprised aren't you?
  2. Once you have had breakfast, drink lots of water. Go ahead and have some juice during the breakfast but after that have water rather than cold drinks which account to nearly 300 calories a day, if had instead of water.
  3. Some experts say that weight watchers should have a pedometer clipped to their belt. After this you can aim for a thousand extra steps each day! On an average people take just about 2000-3000 steps each day. So with a pedometer you can consciously aim for taking a 1000 steps more. This way you will stop gaining more weight if not lose it.
  4. Yet another very old saying by the nutritionist is that eat at least 5-6 meals each day rather than eating 3 main courses. This process will make you eat 30% less calories.
