Let’s admit, weight loss is not easy. By weight loss here , I mean fat loss or dropping dress sizes or increasing stares from people around you or compliments from your friends, family n colleagues , so on and so forth :). Everyone wants it but it comes with patience and hard work. You will go through a lot emotionally during this weight loss journey, let’s get prepared –

  • Invest in a good quality weighing scale like Equinox, Dr. Morepen, Omron etc and measuring tape/callipers for taking body measurements. I have just received my Equinox weighing scale, will review it after I use and test it.

  • Prepare your eating plan for the coming week and shop your groceries accordingly. Shop your groceries once a week and use them to make healthy recipes. Wash your fruits and keep them in fridge. When you are hungry, fruits will serve as a quick snack for you.
  • When you are eating out, order a salad first and have a glass of water. Fibre and water together gives you a feeling of being full. I know salads can be boring sometimes 😛 , you can have paneer tikka.  Paneer (cottage cheese ) is much needed dose of protein. Avoid eating fries or any refined carbs. Homemade food is always better but there is no need to hamper your social life by avoiding going out. Just choose what you eat 🙂 !
  • Split your food in 5-6 meals. Generally, nutritionists suggest that we should eat every 2 hours. This increases our metabolism.
  • Eat only when you are hungry. If you are hungry, eat. If you just crave for taste, try to divert your mind. Remember, we crave for unhealthy food, our body does not need them.
  • Take baby steps at a time. Lifestyle, especially eating habits do not change overnight. Don’t have everything or nothing attitude. You will be able to gradually bring the changes that you always wanted. For eg. When you change your eating habits, you will not be successful every time you eat. You will have cravings , mood swings etc. If you eat 85-90% of the time and workout 3-4 days a week, you will definitely succeed.

To your weight loss success,

Love

  1. Am really happy about this new blog,great job guys,am also a ‘victim’ of PCOD,genetically broad hips,butts&legs runs in my family which I struggle to “trim” everyday and hereditary diabetes & hypertension is also very prominent from both mother and father family lines.So,everyday is an ultimate struggle for me to see what I consume + am also coping with postgraduation,future entrance exams & usual stress of life.Great job anamika & tarun preet.

  2. I have toh an old weighing scale from god knows when at home.

    Nice tips , I intend to start with hot water in the morning and meals every 2-3 hrs everyday . I lost some weight last december with its help.

  3. I m really happy to see this blog. I already have weighing machine but scared to see every time I stepped on it.Hope with this blog I start my weight loss regimen again 🙂

  4. Nice tips….I definitely need a good weighing scale in my life…..
    I lost quite a lot of weight but now am stuck….struggling hard to loose last few kgs

    • Shilpa, you can buy Equinox or Omron or Dr Morepen. Dont buy from Pepperfry, i got a damaged scale from them 🙁

  5. well….. gud inspirations , i appreciate your ideas n work.
    m also trying weight loss therapies with the help of vibration machine.
    bt nt getting gud results..

    • Thanks Settu. Massages are okay but not vibrations. We don’t recommend vibrations to mobilize fat. You need to work on your diet and workout to lose weight.

  6. Hi, I too have been planning to start my weight loss programme. I am now at my fattest, with weight of 79 kgs and height 5.5!!! I have found these posts really motivating and the love that Tarun Preet (and others) keeps everyone motivated! I am 44 years and have contacted my nutritionist to help me lose weight. Last time she had helped me a lot, so I am hoping it would help this time too. I need to lose around 20 kilos, any idea if 10 months is fine for this (i.e. if I follow a proper diet and exercise regime)?

  7. Is running helpful in reducing belly? How much of it is required for a 8 inch loss? Can you give a rough estimate? I have planned a running schedule for 3 months. Target is 8 inch loss.
