Disclaimer- The following post is just a narrative of my daily diet and so not meant to replace professional guidance.This is purely free Gyan-Take it or leave it!
So,its weighty wednesday and I don’t have any weight-loss to report.I am PMSing big time and craving sinful things.Ate some carrot cake over the weekend .This week,I didn’t lose any weight..but the good news is,I didn’t gain any either! And I can’t find my tape..yeah I am clumsy,like that.
Last week,I promised Kavya,that I will write about the diet that I am following..so Here you go,darling:
I start the day with twenty minutes of yoga-Breathing excercise,followed by Kapaalbhaati and some leg raises.
Following that,I drink 1 tall glass of water.(aiming for two)
Breakfast is typically-Oats/Cereal with low fat milk OR 2 slices of bread with cheese OR 1 slice bread with an omlette Or Paratha with sabji.
Mid-morning- 1 cup tea with 2-3 biscuits or 1cup tea with a slice of bread
Lunch- 1 and a half cup daal(or chole/rajma curry)+1 cup sabji or non-veg+1/2 cup yogurt or 1 glass butter milk.A bowl of salad.Sometimes,I just mix yogurt to the salad and make it into a big bowl of raita.Rice or roti,if I am still hungry..but mostly I am too full.
OR A big salad -either chickpea salad or Rajma+macaroni salad Or boiled moong salad with a dash of ketchup,with a glass of thin buttemilk.-These salads are heavy enough to be had as a meal.
OR Cracked wheat upma,made with lots of veggies,with a glass of buttermilk.
OR Daal and omlette.
Tea- 1 cup tea with 2 slices of bread or 1 cup of coffee with 3 marie biscuits Or a bowl of fruit OR 1 bowl cornflakes with milk.
between tea and dinner- 1 glass V8 (or not-if dinner is early)
Dinner- Same as lunch-only no carbs. OR A big bowl of soup with Salad or raita.
This is pretty much what I have been doing for the last 2 weeks and I am enjoying it.I don’t even think of it as a diet.I have a high carb breakfast because of my medication.And on days that i really want to or feel like eating Rice or roti,I eat it.
I have come to realise that a diet that works for one,may or may not work for another..So,if at all you decide to follow a diet like this..use this one only as a guideline and tweak it according to your tastes and circumstances.If anyone would like to discuss more,leave me a comment and I shall revert,promptly-I promise!
