How To Lost 5 Kilos In 15 Days? Lifestyle News
I LOST 5 KILOS OF WEIGHT IN 15 DAYS FOLLOWING THIS ONE GRAIN DIET: I love my food, as long as it is ghar-ka-khana. Yet I have always struggled with my weight, always. I was an obese kid, an overweight teenager and a heavy adult. I have often had people comment after looking at my plate, which would be loaded with colourful vegetables and dal, that how I manage to stay overweight with such a healthy diet. For those who don’t know me, I try to incorporate vegetables like beetroot, karela, beans, lauki and spinach in my diet DAILY.
WHAT MADE ME FOLLOW THIS ONE GRAIN DIET: Then one day I was searching for some healthy options online, when I saw a weight loss post from a lady in Boston. It got me intrigued. She claimed to have lost 20 kilos by following the 'one-grain diet'. I was pretty sure she was bluffing. But then something in me wanted to try it out – after all when it comes to grains, we Indians have far more options.
DAY 1: Hence, started my one-grain diet. Being a dal lover, I chose dal for the first day. I ate dal cheelas for breakfast – I added capsicum, bell pepper, beans, spinach to make it power packed. Then I had two bowls of dal for lunch with a heavy plate of salad. I repeated the same for dinner. The day ended with 10 glasses of water.
DAY 2: The diet made me constipated the next day so I decided to go for a wheat plan. I had gobhi parantha for breakfast with a small cup of tea. For lunch I had two rotis and mixed vegetable with salad. I repeated the same for dinner. Worried about ending up constipated the next day, I had a spoon of Isabgol with warm water before bed. The day ended with 12 glasses of water.
DAY 3: Isabgol worked its wonder but that was something I didn’t want to have daily – I know for sure that laxatives for weight loss is not really ideal. So day three was my besan day. I had besan cheelas for breakfast – again loaded with veggies. I tried adding beetroot and they turned out quite tasty. For lunch, I had besan roti with vegetables and salad. Dinner I opted for besan cheela. I was exceptionally thirsty on day 3 and ended up emptying three bottles.
DAY 4: I was resisting checking my weight until Day 5 but I was feeling lighter and my temptation got the best of me. I was half a kilo down surprisingly. I chose day 4 as paneer day to celebrate my success. I had paneer stuffed parantha for breakfast and palak paneer and roti salad for lunch. For dinner I had paneer tikka – it didn’t feel like a diet at all. The day ended with 10 glasses of water.
DAY 5: I was pleasantly surprised to see that paneer didn’t deter the weight I’d lost. I went a bit extreme and tried a fruit-diet for day 5. I did end up feeling extremely lethargic and hungry by dinner so had a bowl of wheat dalia. I couldn’t have much water because of my fruit diet - The day ended with 6 glasses of water.
DAY 6: I was down by one kilo and I couldn’t have been happier. I was tempted to have potato so ended up with a potato day. I had mashed potatoes (2) for breakfast. For lunch I had potato fries made in Air Fryer with a big plate of salad. By dinner I was feeling so guilty for having potato, that I ended up having papaya. The day ended with 13 glasses of water.
DAY 7: I chose day 7 as the wheat day but with a twist - I had a bowl of vegetable dalia (2 spoons dalia) for breakfast; roti, veggies and salad for lunch and dalia with milk for dinner. The day ended with me feeling very full.
I continued with the above diet for 15 days and by the end of Day 15 I was down by 5 kilos. I highly recommend this diet to people who love their ghar ka khana.
Mind you, what you eat in between meals play a very important role in your weight loss. So make sure you have healthy snacks of the same grain - or better have a cup of chaach or a handful of nuts when you feel hungry.
