I want to lose weight. But I have absolutely no idea how to go about it.

Written by Moez Aryan

Ok so first of all, let me tell you that I want to lose weight. But I have absolutely no idea how to go about it. I know about the basics like I have to work out and eat lesser and cut the carbs. But it’s hard. I don’t know how to do this. I love food. And I just can’t live without carbs!! So my first problem is that what can I eat and what can I not eat? Can you provide me with any diet chart or anything and tell me about the foods that I HAVE TO ABSOLUTELY AVOID EATING?

Dear Curious,

It’s great you know so much about how to be healthy. Before you want to kick a bad habit or food addiction you have to replace it with a good one! You don’t have to cut carbs to zero. It would be unprofessional of me to suggest you to do so. No one can live without carbs. But you have to see which carbs you CAN take. The carbs I absolutely recommend is vegetables, whole grains (although I am not a big fan and you really have to be active to eat a lot of these) and fresh fruits (again shouldn’t be too much per day as fruits contain fructose and that again is carbs).

The carbs that you HAVE TO ABSOLUTELY AVOID EATING is table sugar or anything contains it, processed foods, foods that have a shelf life, soft drinks, fruit juices (fibre is essential and lowers Glycemic index of foods), high glycemic foods (foods that release insulin rapidly in the body like white flour), Transfats and cheap cooking oils and overcooked foods in these oils.

At Omnifarious you have to EARN your carbs. Carbs are long chains of glucose (used by body for sustaining life, functioning and movement) and will turn into glucose once ingested and digested and release insulin. If you don’t move much but have carbs excessively your body doesn’t have a choice but to store it. Excess Carbs (sugars or glucose) is like a guest who stays home even after the party is over (fat). So there would be no way but to match your carb intake with your activity level. I know we all love food. I do.

Your protein sources should come from lean proteins like meat, fish, mutton, chicken, eggs, tofu.

You should enjoy nuts (all sorts of them), Take at least 3 grams of fish oil (or flaxseed oil – I like to have sesame and chia seeds in my protein shakes in the gym as well), have colorful vegetables and fruits. I like to supplement my clients diets with Magnesium, Zinc, Vitamin D3 (extremely essential), B complex and a general multivitamin that you keep switching brands.
