Weight loss story: “I lost 38 kilos by swapping rice with rotis and doing strength training”


My breakfast: 3 whole eggs, either scrambled, boiled or made into an omelette. I would sometimes include a chicken sausage or some milk if I felt more hungry than usual.

My lunch: A medium sized serving of dal with rice, with either chicken, fish or eggs for protein along with some tomatos or cucumber.

My dinner: Almost similar to my dinner, I would try to cut down on my dinner portion sizes and would often swap rice with rotis.

Pre-workout meal: Black coffee with no sugar. I would experiment with my pre workout by adding Coca-Cola (may sound weird but the caffeine really hits) to it for a refreshing taste.

Post- workout meal: Chocolate whey protein powder mixed in water.

I indulge in (What you eat on your cheat days): I would often refrain from indulging in cheat meals but I always had a hard time resisting pizza. I would eat a slice or two of pizza when I was really craving it. I would never overindulge as I had my aim set on my goals

Low-calorie recipes I swear by: Eggs and chicken, cooked in any type of gravy or even dry, could be considered low calorie, except when it’s fried. I would often use rice cakes as a substitute for breadcrumbs as they are relatively low calorie, in case I ever had fried food.
