Diet Plan –
I am not following any strict diet routine but I have made many changes to my diet. For example, I completed stopped eating oily and junk food which was one of the main causes behind my weight. For breakfast, I usually take oats, milk, brown bread, granola, etc. I reduced the quantity of chapati in my meal. I excluded sugar from my diet. I also track my calorie intake on an app to ensure that I am not taking more calories than I can burn. Also, I haven’t taken any health supplement.
My regular exercise regime includes walking and running along with dance, cardio, and skipping. All these things help me to burn the required number of calories while boosting my metabolism level.
Lifestyle changes –
- Said no to the junk and oily food
- Going for a morning walk
- Skipping dinner on a regular basis
- Prioritized quality sleep of 8 hours
- Keeping myself hydrated even in a busy schedule
- Ensuring a lesser quantity of food intake by using a small plate
- Black coffee after the workout session
How do you stay motivated –
I believe that motivation should come from inside. It is always better to manage your weight for yourself, instead of doing it to impress others.
Fitness secrets –
When you manage to burn more calories than you take, your weight automatically goes down.
Lessons learned from my weight loss journey –
First of all, stop seeing it just as a goal and embrace the process because it is always an ongoing journey. Even after losing a few KGs, you have to stay consistent. Although the intensity can be reduced, awareness and consistency should stay at their place. A little bit of carelessness will bring back all the weight you have lost. That’s why you need to change your lifestyle once and for all so that it will be a part of your life. When your weight loss efforts are incorporated into your daily schedule, it becomes easier to manage your weight. A short-term plan for losing weight Is of no use at all. Make it a lifelong commitment!
