    hi friends

    I found this article from net surfing
    hope u'll enjoy reading it

    Here, 25-year-old student Rohit Daga shares how he dropped 16 kilos in three months flat:

    I always hated exercising, so when I gained some weight in college I considered trying an alternate way of losing weight.

    I am 5' 8" tall and weighed 71 kgs at that point of time. Though it did not embarrass me, the "feel good" factor was just not there with that kind of weight.

    So, I set out to drop the excess baggage. I do not like carbonated drinks, so soft drinks were the first to be removed from the consumption list. Then I stopped eating sweets, chocolates, cakes, butter, cheese and potatoes (and everything made from potatoes like chips and vadas).

    I drastically cut down my sugar consumption; it just added too many calories. In addition to these measures, I would drink lots of water. I found that drinking about eight litres of water a day could do wonders for your body. Besides, it is a good way of detoxifying your system.

    I love fruits; and so increased the amount of fruits and vegetables I consumed. Papaya, cucumber, tomatoes, onions and carrots became an important part of my daily diet.

    In the evenings, I would usually get very hungry and I'd order junk food. That is something I targeted. I started to eat a cucumber and a tomato in the evenings; they have a lot of water and satisfy your hunger as well. I stopped eating while watching TV. What I realised was that when I eat while watching TV, I tend to eat more than was necessary. So I just cut it out altogether.

    My daily diet was as follows:

    • Breakfast: Cornflakes and hot milk (300 ml) or 1 plate of idli (two pieces) or a small plate of papaya
    • Lunch: Two rotis, cooked vegetable, one onion and half a cup of curds
    • Evening: One glass of sweet lime or orange juice (without sugar), one cucumber (medium sized) and one tomato (medium sized)
    • Dinner: Two rotis and cooked vegetables
    • Late night snack: One carrot (medium sized)

    Apart from this, I made sure I was not seated for more than 30 minutes at a stretch. I would just take a walk for two minutes or drink some water, which helped me keep burning more calories. I also stopped using lifts and escalators. Instead, I started using the stairs, which also really helped.

    Over a three-month period, I lost 16 kilos and went from weighing 71 kg to 55 kg. So, although I didn't need to lose a lot of weight, the method obviously produced results.

    Many people will recommend various methods for how to lose weight. However, you need to adopt a weight-loss plan that suits your personality. If you hate exercising, there is no point trying to do it against your wishes, you will just not enjoy it.

    I did not like butter or colas, so I could cut it out of my diet without any regrets. I love ice cream though, and did not give it up. I just rationed it to once a fortnight. During this 3-month period, I enjoyed what I ate and was also happy doing it. I also did not spend any additional time on exercise, but managed to lose the weight.

    So, make sure your plan is in-sync with your personality and something that keeps you happy.

    I remember reading somewhere it is much easier for men to reduce weight when compared to women. I experienced it in my case, I am the one who exercises in my house and watch what I eat, I haven't lost a pound :cry: but my husband loses weight just by eating less.

    Hi
    My husband is a classic case of Weight loss without exercise.
    As shwethag has correctly pointed out.Even in my case i am the one who execise and am careful about wht i eat.Still i m not able to lose much weight.I m not overweight but want t o shed few pounds tht i gained duirng pregnancy.Infact my goal is to fit in the blouses tht i stiched for my marriage.:tongueAnd now my son is two years old still i dont properly fit into them.
    And my husband loses and gains weight so quickly.Whenever i go to my parents house he loses weight and when i come back he does not fit in his trousers.:mrgreen:
    He refuses to part with his Pants and jeans which does not fit him even close.But he is so sure he will start using them once i go.:bangcomp:.
