Low Calorie Diet-For Weight Loss
Intermediate fasting 2 days in a week, for example Monday & Thursday, can be one of the effective ways to lose weight. That means not eating anything while the sun is up. Aim to restrict your calorie intake about 600 per day, which is less than quarter of the other 5 days. Divide it into 2 portions - one for breakfast before sunrise & other portion after sunset. There should be enough protein in the breakfast & carbohydrate after sunrise, opposite of what we usually do. This makes you get used to the low calorie intake, without craving the food. A study was performed in rural WA, where people with newly diagnosed diabetes went to live with an indigenous community for 3 months, they lived exactly as the indigenous did “living off the land” hunting and cooking their own food etc. The biological markers before and after travel dramatically changed and almost all of their diabetes went back to a normal level. This is one of the best examples of Obesity due to the curse of civilization. The aim is to get food directly from nature rather than processed food off the shelf. Grow your own fruit & vegetables, catch the fish yourself & cook it where you can. That used to be the lifestyle in the olden days! The more we consume processed food, the more we are harbouring diseases, as we don’t know exactly what we are eating. The aim is to manage long time sustained ideal body weight, rather than crash dieting.
