Just My Thoughts

Easiest Diet in the World

Year after year & Diet after Diet, we’ve all been there. There’s the Paleo Diet, the low carb and the classic Ketogenic diet. If you are like me, you’ve tried pretty much every single diet. And this is how almost all of the diets went; Day 1: I can do this, this is the one. Day 2: I’ve been so good, I deserve a snack. It always starts with a snack than a meal and next thing you know you’ve eaten three pizzas and food for a small village. And why is it, that every time someone is about to start a diet, they go shopping and buy strawberries and feta cheese? While we are at it, let’s stop calling it a diet, think of it as an upgrade. The fact is all of those diets work, and if we genuinely wanted to, we would stick to one and make it work, you are not disciplined enough for that I call you a kindred spirit. In recent times, I came across the idea of minimalistic dieting, inspired by Tim Ferriss. The idea is to simplify your meals to the absolute bone to take away the choice and any room for slip-ups. It’s almost like wearing the same black T-shirt every day — three same meals every day paired with intermittent fasting for six weeks.
Here is my break down but feel free to make changes according to your liking.

Breakfast — Approx 450 Kcal

  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 Toast
  • 100 g Spinach
  • 1 Teaspoon peanut butter

Lunch — Approx 230 Kcal

  • 113 g Grilled Chicken
  • 1 Cup Green Beans
  • 1 Rice Cake

Dinner — Approx 350 Kcal

  • 100 g Minced Beef
  • 1 wrap
  • 1 Cup Green Beans

Snacks — Approx 100 Kcal

  • 1 Apple or Banana
  • 1 Rice Cake
  • Black Coffee — Alot of coffee

Please note the meals above work for me, you will need to work out your own Basal Metabolic Rate(BMR) and the meals that work for you, Everyone is different.

The key is not to over complicate the diet, keep it minimalistic and straight forward. Only shop for what you need — the paradoxical joy of being free from choice is incredible. This diet has helped me lose weight, but it has also helped me become more focused, and there is a new level of clarity that I have not experienced before.
I have been on this diet for two weeks, and I am down 3.5 KG.

Since I am in lockdown, I, unfortunately, can not go to the gym. So here is an “at home” work out plan I have been following:

Image for post

Work Out #1
Bodyweight squats: 20 reps
Push-ups: 20 reps
Lunges — 25 reps
Plank: 60 Seconds
Jumping jacks: 60 reps
Work Out #2
Jump rope: 2–3 minutes
Jumping jacks: 30 reps
Bodyweight squats: 20 reps
Lunges — 25 reps
Push-ups: 10–20 reps
Like I said, keep it simple.
