Weight Loss and Diet

The calorie intake kept changing from 1 week to the next. It was always about a calorie deficit diet that helped in my journey. At the start of the journey, intake was on the higher side eg 1800 kcal diet which my coach kept adjusting as we went forward. So all my intake was quantified eg 5gm oil per meal, 50gm carbs per mean, Protein around 250 gm a day, etc.

Anasuya Barua ate home-cooked meals to lose 14 kilos

The menu is very simple, it is what any home-cooked meal looks like: Oats, boiled eggs, tea for breakfast; Rice, chicken/fish curry and salad for lunch, snack would be 1 banana and 1 glass of milk after working out , Dinner would be Chapati and Mixed Veggies. The only difference in these meals would be how much carbs I use and what is the quantity of oil used to cook all these items.

What my Cheat Day Looked Like:

Cheat days would be once in a while when there were certain occasions with friends and family. I would not hog on everything that is served but kept a check on how much quantity I am taking. Home-baked cakes were always a weakness for me.

Anasuya Barua’s transformation story is inspiring.

Foods I Quit to Lose Weight:

The most important thing was quitting sugar and potatoes completely. I had shifted from using sugar to using Stevia which is 0 calories. I used to love using potatoes in every meal whether it was making any veg or non-veg curry. As potatoes are carbs and my carbs intake was limited, had to quit it.

Is there a shortcut to losing weight?

In the past, before I started my fitness journey, there were all these crash diets that I used to do but the fact is you do lose water weight in a week’s time and you feel happy but as soon as you stop it, you will either gain back the same or more weight in the coming weeks. So to answer your questions- No, there is no shortcut. It is a slow and steady process. We must never lose hope.

Weight Loss and Workout Routine:

My workout schedule consists of weight training with 3.5Kg dumbbells for 40-60 min a day and twice a week I would do HIIT for 30 min. Then there is a target to complete 12K steps a day.

What worked for me:

Quantifying my meals and being active is what really worked for me. In my daily schedule, whenever there are long meetings, I made sure I keep walking and this helped me achieve my step count of 10-12K per day.

What did not work was following the schedule if I go on a holiday or vacation. At that time I just did portion control.
