Subject:  Not practical
These soup diets or similar diets are not really practical for all. With three mouths to feed it is really hard to cook seperate meals for self and others in the family. The diet I am looking for is something that can be incorporated with normal family meals by taking lesser portions or ommiting few ingredients.

Hi Dhanashree,

you can follow below:

I have lost 29 pounds in last 5-6 months following simple diet tips. Being indian, i couldnt follow any market diets and had to find something that helps me lose. I am located in US so few things are not available in india, but one can find substitutes.

Here is what i follow:

8:45 am: Morning:
1 cup skim milk with
1/2 packet quaker oats regular flavour oatmeal + 1/2 cup total whole wheat cereal + 1/2 tsp grounded flax seed

11am: Mid -morning
If i am hungry i take
-- 1/2 cup coffee, with 1/2 cup skim milk
OR
--1/2 cup fresh fruit juice
OR
--1 fresh fruit

12:15 pm: Lunch
-- 3/4 no ghee thin chapatis
-- 1 cup moong/chana/veggie
(Please note, i cook my veggie for 2 people/ 3 days and i use 1/2 tsp oil for all of that. Whereever there is need for oil, i substitute with water ,using minimum oil)
-- 1/2 cup fat free yogurt
-- around 15 red grapes
(this lunch really fills me up_

2 pm :
5-6 almonds

4pm:
1/2 cantaloupe
OR
20 strawberries
OR
1 full papaya

6 pm:
1 whole grain toasted wheat bread (100 calories)

8 pm:
1 veggie burger/ 1 whole grain bread/spinach/ and 1 plate raw boiled veggies

Done.
Please note , I do 30 min of cardio daily. I varied between elliptical/walking

Forgot to mention few other things

-- I drink 2-3 cups of green tea daily
--Except the diet i mentioned, i dont eat anything else, except 1 low fat carrot cake on sunday
as a treat.
--If i crave for sweet, red grapes and watermelon works the best.


hope this helps,

i had also put on weight after my pregnency which remained constant even after my delivery i tried this below mentioned GM diet ......& lost 2 1/2 kg ......
During the first seven days you must abstain from all alcohol
You must drink 10 glasses of water each day
Day One All fruits except bananas. Your first day will consist of all the fruits you want. It is strongly suggested that you consume lots of melons the first day. Especially watermelon and a loupe. If you limit your fruit consumption to melons, your chances of losing three lbs. on first day are very good.

Day Two All vegetables. You are encouraged to eat until you are stuffed with all the raw or cooked vegetables of your choice. There is no limit on the amount or type. For your complex carbohydrate, you will start day two with a large baked potato for breakfast. You may top the potato with one pat of butter.
Day Three A mixture of fruits and vegetables of your choice. Any amount, any quantity. No bananas yet. No potatoes today.
Day Four Bananas and milk. Today you will eat as many as eight bananas and drink three glasses of milk. This will be combined with the special soup which may be eaten in limited quantities.
Day Five Today is feast day. You will eat beef and tomatoes (sprouts also) Eat 280 gms of sprouts and Paneer . Eat two 10 oz. portions of lean beef. Hamburger is OK. Combine this with six whole tomatoes. On day five you must increase your water intake by one quart. This is to cleanse your system of the uric acid you will be producing.
Day Six (sprouts + paneer + vegetables) Beef and vegetables. Today you may eat an unlimited amount of beef and vegetables. Eat to your hearts content.
Day Seven Today your food intake will consist of brown rice, fruit juices and all the vegetables you care to consume.
