Diet Plan

Since a lot of people were asking for a diet chart i am posting this.

Forget the 3 meal policy.And if you were any bit like me i am sure you would have been eating 24X7.My sister is against this breakfast/lunch/dinner.According to her it should be meal 1,2,3,4,5,6... luckily she stopped at 6.

So anyways split your food across 5-6 divisions


Meal 1(Breakfast):NEVER Skip your first meal.It starts the metabolism.
Eat something fresh like fruits and a glass of milk.
or measured quantities for e.g 2 idlies/chapathi/paratha with 100 gms veg

Meal 2
: Should be timed in such a way that its between your breakfast and lunch
1 Fruit(Its better to eat the fruit than having it as a juice)
Else try 4 digestive biscuits like marie
or a Glass of soup(veg with no butter)

Meal 3 (Lunch): 2 Chappathis with 1 cup dal and 1 cup Vegetables
OR
a Large Bowl of Salad(Cucumber/Tomato/Cabbage/Carrot/Greens/Sprouts)
or
a Plain Sandwich{Use your imagination : Pudhina chutney/Egg/Channa}

Meal 4: Can be similar to meal 2

Meal 5(Dinner): 1 chappathi with 1 cup dal + 1 cup Vegetable +1 cup Curd
You can also have a glass of milk in the night.
You have to be up for atleast an hour(preferably 2 hours) before you sleep.

This Just gives an idea of how you should be eating
Some Pointers:
*Stick to fruits and vegetables in the raw.
You can eat mangoes and bananas but control the frequency.
Better fruits would be Oranges,grapes,papaya,apples,watermelon etc.
If you are having juice dont take with sugar.You can use Honey as an alternative.
*Soups:Palak/tomato/mushroom
*AVOID Sugar and that means no sweets.
Does not have any nutritive value.
If you are a coffee/tea drinker(or an addict like me) reduce the sugar slowly over a period of time and finally you will be able to drink it without sugar (yes its possible i am doing that now)
*Please Note does not matter how much your mom loves you NO BUTTER/NO OIL.
*Vegetable should be cooked with minimum oil.
*Milk Should be Skimmed.
*Also include in your salad boiled potatoes but not too frequently
*For Non Veg eat chicken in limited quantities.Preferably have boiled chicken.Around 100-200 gms per week was my norm.
Fish would be a preference but NO DEEP FRYING!Prawns should be avoided.
Egg : eat only the white.
Mutton : NO
*Rice : twice a week is what i followed and that too 150 gms each meal.The advantage of chappathis is you can eat 2-3 of them and it will be equivalent to 150 gms of rice.
*Remember to eat more of dal and vegetables than rice.
*No pickles/Sugar/Oily stuff/Samosas/puffs/fast food junk/ice cream/cool drinks.
*When eating NV you can eat that itself as the base of your meal.
*Breads try 6 grain or wheat bread
*Dont eat and then Immediately sleep
*Drink at least 12 glasses of water(warm water if possible)
*Eat slowly and relish your food
*Remember you should NOT STARVE.If you are feeling very hungry drink juices/soups.Listen to your body and change the diet as per its response.Its ok to gorge once in a while say 1 day every fortnight bcoz i dont think its humanly possible to keep away from all the goodies for a long time.reward yourself every 2 kilos loss by eating something you like.Use your imagination and try different combinations.

One very good diet plan i followed was the GM Diet.Put a search for it.it works.All the Best.

Many people try to achieve goals. Most fail. Some strive, work hard and plan for all the details yet they achieve little or nothing at all. Others strive, work hard, plan and achieve huge success. Yet there are a few individuals who do little else than take small steps and seem to achieve a great deal with what seems like effortlessness. What is the difference between these people and which one would you like to be?
Most members of the human race fall into two categories - those who live in the past and those who live in the future. Most live in the past. Many of these are the people who achieve very little in their lives and are so fearful of the future that they dare not strike out to get anything. They are the under-achievers who hang onto bad episodes in their lives and either relive them time and again or look at new situations as similar potentialities. They say things like "all men are deceivers" or "all women are interested in is money" or "I can't do it. I tried before and it didn't work so why bother!". Due to bad experiences in the past they believe that all future events will turn out the same way if they dare to go after what they want.
The other type of person lives in the future. This type tends to create more of the things they want in life. They have a vision of where they want to go and exactly how they are going to get there. They work diligently at making concrete plans and they pursue those plans with a persistent ferocious appetite for success. These people are the high achievers - The Richard Branson and Bill Gates of the world. These people have much to teach us about setting and achieving goals.
However, there is a third type of person who almost goes unnoticed. They are the person who takes life in its stride and yet achieve most of what they want. I am sure you know of such a person in your life that just seems to saunter through life and yet they always come out on top. Or a person who you hear of that has decided to open a shop. You meet them a few months later and they have three shops all doing well! So what makes these people so successful and if they aren't living in the past and aren't living in the future where are they living?
I suppose you guessed it! Whether they are consciously aware of it or not they are living in the present. It is in the 'living' present that we have our greatest power. Everything happens in the present. You live your entire life there - even if your mind does not!
By becoming more aware of the present and by 'accepting' it as it is we are much more in control of our emotions and focus. When we live in the past we are fearful of making bad choices and/or getting hurt. We do not wish to recreate the past again! When we live in the future we can also be fearful of what might happen. But even if your future vision is full of power and worthy of working towards many people can, and often do, get stuck there. By constantly reaching for bigger and better goals they fail to enjoy what they have in the moment.
If you wish to start living a life that is almost effortless begin first by living in the present. Accept your situation the way it is and then you can enjoy what you have. Your focus changes from a memory of what was or a vision of what might be to a realization of what is. You become much more empowered to then see the beauty of life and also look at where you wish to make changes. But to make changes you must first accept the situation as it is. Trying to escape from your present only increases your focus on your problems by creating resistance to what is. Accept your life as it is now. Make no judgement, just accept it and then you will be free of doubt, worry, pain and fear. For you only experience these things when you live outside the 'moment'. hypnosis
