My breakfast: I have my first meal around 8 A.M.- usually a mix of almonds, cashews, walnuts (handful) with poha/ semolina/ vermicelli (100-150 gms). Sometimes, I like to have 2 pieces of idli and half a cup of tea without sugar.
My lunch: I have my lunch around 1-1:30 P.M., usually 2 chapatis, 150 gm of toor dal and curry (low-carb veggies like cabbage, cauliflower, green beans, ridge gourd etc) with a serving of salad.
Evening snacks: Murmure (puffed rice) and green moong daal sprouts mix (1 bowl) or a fruit chaat (papaya+ apples). A while later, half a cup of milk tea (without sugar of course)
I have a cup of Green tea before going for my evening walk
My dinner: Oats khichdi (150 gm) and half a glass of haldi doodh before going to bed.
Pre-workout meal & Post-workout meal: Because I majorly followed basic brisk walking and jogging exercises, (the initial months at least), I didn’t really buy into pre or post-workout meals. I just followed calorie restrictions and divided my meals into 4 slots as mentioned above.
I just did basic brisk walking throughout my weight loss journey (Initial 4.5 months of my journey). So, was not much into pre-workouts or post workouts meal and was following strict meal timings and divided them into 4 slots as mentioned above.
I indulge in (What you eat on your cheat days): Frankly saying, I never had any single cheat day during my 4.5 months weight loss journey and completely avoided eating outside food.
Low-calorie recipes I swear by:
I love this recipe part. My aim is to add as many veggies as I can to my normal meals. Like, I used to prepare poha will a lot of veggies, had veggies soups, oats with veggies (Like, spinach, beetroot, paneer, soya, etc)., green moong sprouts with veggies salad. (I am vegetarian so I love adding veggies in my recipes).
