weight loss diet

Let’s start with weight loss diet, in the upcoming days, we’ll upload two more articles to help you in this journey and get you to lose those pounds.

Firstly, it’s all about your health. Being obese or overweight is not something we choose, and it comes with many heart diseases, diabetes, and other diseases like fatty liver (source).

Secondly, you should know that losing weight is neither an easy thing to do, nor a difficult task, it’s all about your motivation, determination, and will!

Ok, why do I sound like a motivational speaker 🙂?

Let’s just get to the point.

So, weight-loss diet.

Several things to clarify here, first, not every diet works for everyone.

Everyone has a different body and metabolism, and each body requires a different diet to sustain these weight-loss efforts.

Hence, a good thing to do here is to not get upset when a particular diet didn’t work for you but did so for another person.

You’ll need to switch and experiment with different diets throughout your journey.

Secondly, you also don’t need to get stereotypical on this journey, start skipping meals, just warding off fats, starving yourself, etc.

Whatever path you choose, choose it backed by research, and do it the right way.

For example, if you do want a strict diet and think it would be easier to go for a fast-based diet to lose weight, don’t start starving yourself, instead go for intermittent fasting.

Now, after all the disclaimers, let’s get back to the reason you’re here: the research part, because you need to know what foods can help shape your diet in this journey.

Yeah, we have all the guidelines for you, so buckle up and get ready to lose that tummy.

The basic principle

weight loss diet

Remember, the bottom line for any weight-loss diet lies in the calories.

When making a diet plan, you need to ignore everything you’ve read off the internet and remember one basic principle:

If you burn more calories than you consume, you’ll lose weight.

It matters less what you eat as long as you’re following this principle.

But it seems wrong for it to be this simple, right?

But it is.

All those diets on the internet, they’re all trying to follow this principle, but they don’t tell you as much.

Luckily, you have us.

What your diets ought to do, is to manage this formula.

All diets are essentially hacks to fulfill it’s conditions.

Trying to reduce calories compared to your physical activities, and not reducing ‘em so much that your body gets hurt in the process.

Now, let’s. Move forward to those tips or hacks, on how to achieve this calorie deficit.

Have and Have-nots


Among your macros, protein takes precedence. You need more and more protein to sustain your muscle growth, cell regeneration, etc.

When you get to eating your high-protein dinner, you realize that protein isn’t the only thing present in your dinner.

For example, you’re gonna eat a tasty mutton qorma because meat has a good amount of protein, right?


Mutton has fats, fibers, and carbs too. Additionally, the qorma must be prepared in that desi oily technique. So, that’s a problem too.

All these combined, calories shoot off the charts.

You must know fat is the most calorie-dense macronutrient.

This means it contains like 9 calories per gram compared to carbs or protein which have only 4 calories per gram.  


Choose protein sources that have less fat.

A very very good option here is to opt for protein supplements, we already have a few articles that can help you understand their role in weight loss better and why they can be your hidden weapon in this journey.

Plus, if you’re wondering that, “protein powder se larrkio ki body marddon jesi ho jaati hai,” We have another article to debunk that myth.


Here’s what we’ll say, eat more whole grains rather than simple carbs.

Why? Well, simple carbs digest faster, don’t get your cravings down, have little to no benefits for your body, and have less nutritional value.

Seems like a personal rant but it’s true.

Simple carbs include baked breads, raw and brown sugars, sugar drinks, etc.

What will help you more here, is a whole grain diet, like roti.

It will mean a lifestyle change tho, you’ll have to shift to juices from sodas, roti from bread, and fruits from baked and other sweets.

Plus, it’s a bonus to incorporate vegetables into your diet, they may not be as high in protein, but they’re good in calorie count and make you feel full, which is what you need when dieting.

But just don’t make vegetables drenched in oils.

Now onwards to the incorporation of this stuff.

The first advice would be to make a diet plan. You’ll need to get organized and punctual to pull this off. Know when to eat, what to eat, and how much to eat.

Making diet plans, calculating calories of each possible food, planning cravings, cheat days etc, may all sound a bit too much we know. But it’s easier now, you can just use AI for this stuff.

A long chat with GPT and you’ll be set!

The second piece of advice would be to never skip a meal.

Think about people who are already slim. They’re eating three meals a day too.

This means eating three meals isn’t a problem, it’s a good diet plan.

What we mean here, is to not go overboard with your diet plan. Eat healthy, eat less, eat smartly BUT DO EAT.

Thirdly, be aware of what you’re drinking.

Drinks that are sweetened naturally or not, tend to just add extra empty calories in your bodies and nothing else. Emit soda, even diet soda from your diet. Go with fresh juices, but don’t even drink them a whole lot.

The best way to stay hydrated is water, so maybe add that a lot more than anything else.

Another great way to deal with this problem is artificial flavoring, like our FlavBursts. No artificial sugars or anything, just flavor drops. Add it to your drinks, or protein shakes, and enjoy.

Burning the calories

What those other articles and insta reels also don’t tell you is the second side of the formula, the burning of calories.

Weight loss is hardly possible without that other side. You can’t just get up and follow a diet plan and expect to lose pounds.

You will also have to work out, exercise, and be physically active to not only lose the weight but also to sustain the lowered weight in the future.

Take Away Message

In conclusion, embarking on a weight loss journey requires more than just a desire to shed pounds; it demands a holistic approach encompassing both mind and body. As we’ve explored, the key to success lies in understanding the fundamental principle of calorie balance, choosing nutrient-dense foods, staying hydrated, and embracing physical activity

Remember, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to weight loss. Each individual’s journey is unique, and what works for one person may not work for another. Be patient with yourself, stay motivated, and don’t be afraid to experiment with different strategies until you find what works best for you.
