All weight loss programs fail due to diet. "You cannot keep shoveling the same crap into your mouth every day and expect to loose weight.” Skinny Bitch.
When I got pregnant I stopped worrying about what I ate worst still I continued doing so after the birth as well. Chocolates, ice-creams, chips, samosas, jalebis you name it and I ate it, all in the name of pregnancy and child birth. One thing I would request all pregnant women is to watch what you eat while you are pregnant or you will end being the fat mummy that you loath being.
I was size 0 before my wedding (all my life till the age of 30), reached a size 12 after the wedding and stayed there for 2 years, went back to a size 0 (workout, diet ) and stayed there till pregnancy.
The crux is I haven’t it in me to be fit and to eat sensibly. This diet plan was created after reading a lot of diet books. Reading list: Don't Lose Your Mind, Lose Your Weight and Women and the Weight Loss Tamasha by Rujuta Diwekar, The Four-week Countdown Diet: Now You Choose How You Lose by Namita Jain, Confessions of a Serial Dieter by Kalli Purie and whole load of blogs. All these books are by Indian authors so amazing for Indian Food plans and recipes
Most of this is just things I know I have to do bit don’t do
These are the guidelines for my diet
· Drink at least 3 liters of water daily.( I have serious issue with following this)
· Calorie intake should stay between 1200 to 1300 calories
· Watch what I put in my mouth
· Wakeup to 1glass of luke warm water with a dash of lime
· Eat something within 10 minutes of waking up.
· Never skip breakfast.
· Eat every 2 Hours
· Eat home cooked food on most days.
· Eat my fruit and veggies
· Limit Intake of sugar to 2 tsps. daily
· 1 Serving = 1 katori = (1/2 cup) =100gms/ 100ml
