“Hard boiled eggs are easy to cook ahead of time, inexpensive, rich in the best quality, satiating protein there is, and they’re good for a snack or meal plus they’re portable. I recommend including them in any weight loss plan.” — Christine M. Palumbo, a Chicago-based dietitian
Hi Mike, thanks for the great article! I’ve hit a plateau in my effort to get to single digits in body fat. It feels like I’m loosing muscle rather than body fat. I’m sitting around 12% with only 5 weeks left until a show. Could you give me specific macro targets to help get that last bit of fat off but maintain muscle at the same time? My weight is 187 pounds and Im currently using 1.5grams per pound for protein, 0.5g for carbs and fats.
This lean meat is a good source of protein and minerals, says Cohn. “3 ounces has 2.5 grams of fat and 143 calories (1/3 the fat of beef or pork and 40 percent less calories). Bison is usually much lower in hormones and raised on cleaner feed.”
While they may not be the most appetizing item on the list, if you can stomach them, pop open a can of sardines this summer! Sardines are full of fat-fighting compounds that help stabilize blood sugar. They’re rich sources of CO enzyme Q10, vitamin B12, selenium, omega-3 oils, calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin D. Plus, sardines are satiating and packed with protein, says Richter.

Keep in mind that the initial weight lost on a fast is primarily fluid or “water weight,” not fat. And when you go back to eating, any lost weight usually gets a return ticket back. Not only do most people regain weight lost on a fast, they tend to add a few extra pounds because a slower metabolism makes it easier to gain weight. Worse, the weight that is regained is likely to be all fat — lost muscle has to be added back at the gym.
Well, it must have been heard millions of times by now that the secret to a beautifully chiseled figure is 5-6 small meals per day rather than 3 heavy ones that all of us usually have. The small healthy meals at short intervals help in boosting up metabolism thereby burning more calories. The basic idea of the 1200 Calorie meal plan is the same.
Put together a sandwich of tuna (canned – preferably low-sodium, light, and packed in water) with 1 tablespoon nonfat mayo or nonfat plain yogurt, chopped celery, and onions, topped with baby spinach or peppery arugula, on 100% whole-wheat bread (low-sodium)
I personally will add egg whites to every day the next time I do this. I know that will throw things off a bit; but I could tell I was protein starved and I’d rather be in a better mood over the 7 days even if that means I only lose 5-7lbs as opposed to 9.
Save bananas for day four! Preferred fruits for day one are apples, watermelon, and any kind of citrus fruit. Nutritional information, workout video, and delicious weight-loss beverage recipes included.
Hi Anna, Yes weight loss is a combined effect of both diet and physical exercises. We hope the blog How To Lose Weight in 4 Weeks With This Indian Diet Chart for Weight Loss is helpful to you. Keep following our blogs and do keep writing to us. 🙂
Thanks for the reply. Well my maintenance 1617 calories, and i ahve reduced my intake to 1500 cos i know if i go any lower my weight is going to drop and im borderline underweight and healthy weight. My carbs are 187g, protein 112g, and fat is 34g. I also forgot to mention that i do lift weights, mainly squating and deadlifting heavy plus skipping rope around 10 minutes on those days. I also do other workouts like back day and shoulders and a bit of arms. Does this sound better? If i do 20% below maintenance its around 1290 which is way too low for me i think. What are your thoughts?
You can follow the GM diet during menstruation. However, since you will lose a good amount of iron, eat foods that have good iron content. Check with your doctor or nutritionist to know if you need to take iron supplements.

The four-hour eating window — which Hofmekler refers to as the “overeating” phase — is at night in order to maximize the Parasympathetic Nervous System’s ability to help the body recuperate, promoting calm, relaxation and digestion, while also allowing the body to use the nutrients consumed for repair and growth. Eating at night may also help the body produce hormones and burn fat during the day, according to Hofmekler. During these four hours, the order in which you eat specific food groups matters, too. Hofmelker says to start with veggies, protein and fat. After finishing those groups, only if you are still hungry should you tack on some carbohydrates.
Although many fad diets that create rapid weight loss have come and gone over the years, it is encouraging to note that the apple cider vinegar diet leads to gradual weight loss. It would be nice if we could shed pounds quickly and never see them again, but experience has shown that weight that leaves easily comes back easily.
Researchers at Scripps Clinic in San Diego found that when obese people ate half a grapefruit before each meal, they dropped an average of 3 ½ pounds over 12 weeks. Drinking grapefruit juice had the same results.
This is no deprivation diet: You’ll eat three meals and two snacks daily, plus each dish packs a filling balance of 45 percent carbohydrates, 30 percent protein, and 25 percent healthy fats. When it comes to drinks, Forberg recommends sticking to no- and low-cal picks like coffee, tea, and water. And to accelerate weight loss, The Biggest Loser trainer Bob Harper suggests doing 60 to 90 minutes of moderate exercise four times a week. So get motivated, get started, and get ready to watch your weight drop!
One study found that eating in front of mirrors slashed the amount people ate by nearly one-third. Having to look yourself in the eye reflects back some of your own inner standards and goals, and reminds you of why you’re trying to lose weight in the first place.

Sugar is one thing you should greatly reduce, if not omit from your daily platter. There are many sources of hidden sugar, so it’s a good idea to reduce sugar. Use alternatives like honey, palm sugar, and licorice extract.
Most of the dieters lose their reins at the end of the day and stuff themselves at dinner. But a controlled 300 cal dinner can keep things under control. It is best to finish up dinner at 8.30 PM at night because it allows the foods to be properly digested before going to sleep and the body can have a long gap of almost 11 hours before the next meal – breakfast. Some 300 cal dinner options for the 1200 calorie Indian diet are:
Your cousin Margaret swears that giving up bread for a few weeks helped her shed pounds just in time for her high school reunion. You, on the other hand, haven’t eaten a slice of toast in five years and still haven’t lost those last few pounds. As soon as you’ve learned the ropes of one diet, another swoops in, threatening to be even more effective.
Hey there. I am having a hard time finding out what my custom multiplier should be. I’m 36..125 pounds. I work out heavily 6 days a week and also have a physically demanding job. I know fitbit aren’t 100% accurate but on average I burn close to 2000 cals a day not including workouts. (I’m always moving lifting and on the go) I set the exercise to 6 days a week with the cut option as I want to currently lose some body fat and still gain muscle. But the calories seem really low 🙁 i have been cycling on higher and more moderate day.. Higher being leg and Glute days. Any ideas what I should custom set the multilayer at?
To use the calculator, provide your statistics, then select “fat loss” as your goal. Pick an activity level that matches how active you really are. If you say you’re more active than you are, the calculator will give you more calories per day. If you consume all of them, you’ll gain weight. Only by being honest about your activity level can you start to lose weight.

Do follow this diet plan and let us know how it worked for you. For more articles on health tips and recipes, do keep following our blogs.:)
The Paleo concept of going grain-free can be greatly beneficial, as you strip away nutritionally bankrupt, starchy calories that spike insulin levels and instead usually replacing with more vegetables.
How It Works: Fast for 14 (women) to 16 (men) hours each day, and then “feed” for the remaining eight to 10 hours. During the fasting period, you consume no calories. However, black coffee, calorie-free sweeteners, diet soda and sugar-free gum are permitted. (A splash of milk in your coffee won’t hurt, either.) Most practitioners will find it easiest to fast through the night and into the morning. They usually break the fast roughly six hours after waking up. This schedule is adaptable to any person’s lifestyle, but maintaining a consistent feeding window time is important. Otherwise, hormones in the body can get thrown out of whack and make sticking to the program harder, Berkhan says.
Keto can work for fat loss, but it might be unnecessarily extreme for you. Losing fat is all about energy balance (calories consumed versus energy expended). If you’re overweight and sedentary, your diet should be low in carbohydrate, but if you’re healthy and lifting weights, and want to lose some fat, you’ll likely do better with higher carb, and don’t need keto. Check out that article I linked before – https://legionathletics.com/ketogenic-diet/
Even if you burn enough calories daily to create this deficit, you’d likely have to survive on a near-starvation diet plan, which stalls your metabolism, causes you to lose valuable muscle and puts you at risk of nutrition deficiencies. Also, once you return to eating as you were before your weight-loss effort, you’ll gain the weight back quickly. A quality weight-loss plan guides you in losing weight gradually with sustainable strategies so you can keep the weight off for life.
I’m 102 lbs., 5’0″, female with 20.4% body fat (Bod Pod reading). My TDEE is 1575, and my goal is to lose fat. I’m skinny fat with pretty much all my fat in my stomach (arms and legs are lightly toned, however it’s very difficult for me to gain muscle even if I do eat at a surplus (my body type is an ectomorph)). I’ve been training for several years now (primarily circuit training with free weights) and only recently started using the 45 lb. bar for squats, deadlifts, and bench. Since starting that, I’ve slowly lost a couple of pounds but the belly fat just won’t budge. My body fat fluctuates between 20-21% on normal days.
hello mike! it’s me again. thanks for sharing this and it has help me understand more about “dieting”. i am into gaining weight and i combined the bulking strategy outlined here with your 4 day split program. however this has come into my mind recently… do i need to keep on increasing my caloric intake? or do just base everything on how much weight i have improved per week? im quite confused.. hope you can clarify.thanks!
Recently, BlackDoctor.org had the opportunity to chop it up with Fitness Guru and Fitness As A Lifestyle CEO, Corey S. Taylor, who broke down some quick tips on how to stay motivated and meet your weight loss goals in a pinch.
Foods haven’t always had nutrition panels on their labels, so many people didn’t have an opportunity to learn how to compare the macronutrients (macros) in the food they buy. It wasn’t that long ago that people never though in terms of protein, carbs, or fats. It was just “food.” We’ve come a long way since then.
