Warning : This post may be considered as a rant.
It has been exactly 3 months and 1 day since I started this blog. The entire objective is to create more awareness about the importance of fitness and a healthy lifestyle- explaining how easy it really is and how you can take little steps to incorporate it into your lifestyle. I also answer questions weekly and reply to questions in the comments section as soon as I can. However, I have so many people asking me almost every single day to create a diet chart!
If you have read my previous post (they are all lined up in the right side to save the effort of scrolling), you would know that I am strictly against diets. In fact, my very first post is about why I don’t believe in ‘dieting’. My other posts, are about how you can lose weight and get fit without dieting. What is dieting? A chart which tells you what to eat? The only time I guess you have to follow this chart is when you have a serious medical condition and the doctor gives it to you. I have seen people following diets in hospital, and that is because eliminating and including certain foods is extremely necessary in some conditions. However, if you are healthy (and even overweight) and have no serious medical condition, what do you need a diet for?
I do not hold a certification in anything related to nutrition or even fitness for that matter. What I know and write, is through implying research on myself and talking about the results of my experience. So you all asking me for a diet means asking an amateur to make a random chart and you will consume food according to that everyday? Who am I to tell you what to eat? For that matter, who is anyone to tell you what to eat and when to eat? What if your diet says you have to eat at 6am when you wake up at 8am? You will blindly follow it? You will aimlessly follow a chart because you so desperately want the numbers on your weighing scale to reduce?
Well I am sorry because- do not lose weight if you hate your body, do it because you love it and respect it. Love your body enough to not put it through torture. This is exactly what is misinterpreted when people try to be fit. In fact, some do not even start because they are so afraid of not eating what makes them happy! I just ate brownies today afternoon, and no, I would not gain weight. This is the result of being healthy not not following a 3 month diet plan. I have lose more than 20kgs without dieting even for a day! And today I can go eat a pizza if I want to without the fear of gaining weight, because I know I have built a strong foundation for myself and did not take a temporary path which makes me lose weight as long as I am following it and gain when I stop.
Being healthy is a lifestyle guys, stop overcomplicating it and then stress eating because you feel hopeless, because you overcomplicate it ! This is the motive of my blog- to make people realise how easy it is to lose weight and be healthy. Please quit asking me to make you a diet chart and visit a nutritionist if you so desperately need one.
Stay tuned to my posts (every Wednesday and Sunday) and you would know how easy it is to be super healthy and lose those kilos.
