My buddy (Name to not be disclosed as promised) had been doing every little thing to shed pounds however was discovering it very demotivating when even after common walks each day, she was not in a position to see the size budging. I had been suggesting that perhaps her calorie consumption was greater than what she was burning, however her meals log was telling a special story.

To start with the story…..
Sugandha had touched 99.6 kg one yr again and was underneath duress due to her joint pains brought on by autoimmune illness. She was going for at least 30-45 minutes stroll 4 instances per week. Though she needed to do all of it seven days, her low vitality ranges made it troublesome for her to take action. After attempting to do varied restrictive diets like egg weight loss plan, Keto, no fats, excessive fats, low carb, and many others, she did not shed pounds because it was troublesome for her to remain glad with what she was consuming. Being a foodie, doing these restrictive diets was powerful. When she did not proceed, it affected her psychological well being, and she or he discovered her consuming all of the banned meals in double the amount.
Then in the future, when she known as me to speak about her points, we determined to attempt OMAD, aka One meal a day. She took a while to get used to the thought, after which got here the Sawan month. Sugandha fasted on Mondays and appreciated the thought of consuming all types of meals as soon as a day with out punishing her style buds. That was the sport changer for her. In one week, Sugandha was 95.65 kg.
She was blissful, so she despatched me this image of her weighing scale.
