  9. neha says

    Hey payal,
    I m neha my weight is 64kg n i want to lose 25 kg weight.my height is 5.3.i m vry lazy so don’t want for walk.i think i should join gym to lose my weight.it is good for body n i heard tht if i leave d gym after weight loss so my body become worse can u pls tell me about joining gym exersise is good or not

    • says

      Hi Neha,

      first you need to set your goals right , losing 25 kgs to get 45 kgs with a height of 5.3 is wanting to become unhealthy. please aim at losing 7-8 kgs which will be appropriate for your height. 2ndly .. if your goal is around 10 kgs , you should join gym after losing the first 5 kgs with walking . because if you directly join a high intensity exercise , th weight loss would be good , but it will get stagnant if you cant take it to a higher level. hence i always advice on starting with something like walking at home, losing the forst 4-5 kgs with it then going to a higher level of workout , joining gym is what you can do. yes ..when you exercise intensly, the muscles gets wonderfully toned. but when you suddenly stop all exercises, the tone is lost . and hence the shape luks bad.

      About the Diet consultation – To understand what we would do and how we would go about it, read this page – http://www.dietburrp.com/diet-services/

      If you have already gone through the page, then let me know if you have any confusion, or questions regarding the services. Here is how we would go ahead

      I have mentioned my bank account details; you can deposit the money in my account. It can be a cash deposit or an online transfer.

      You can buy a 1 week plan for weight loss for Rs 999/- only.

      Foreign clients can either deposit Rs 999/- through any Indian account or we can raise a pay pal request of 18 $. (inclusive of paypal charges)

      As soon as I realize the payment in my account, I will get in touch with you and send you a diet chart.

      In between the waiting time, you can fill up a small form that i would be sending you to collect all your details. Where in you can mention your body stats, age, lifestyle details, eating habit, like s and dislikes, your timings and medical problems if any.

      Based on the above mentioned details from the form, i will do an analysis of every factor and plan a suitable diet chart.

      This diet chart would be planned according to your cuisine, timings, convenience of cooking, so we make sure that you are comfortable and follow the chart 100 %.

      After sending you the chart, the diet package will start from the day you actually start following the diet, and those days spent on preparations would not be counted.

      I will send over a single chart with seven options for different days, so you know what items are allowed and accordingly manage your grocery for the week.

      During the week i will follow up with you every 2-3 days to check if you are comfortable and if you face any issue, we can work to solve it.

      In case if you have a question for me, you don’t have to wait till I mail you for follow up. Just write to me about it and I will try to help you on the question at the earliest.

      1 week is a small period and hence we can not set up huge goals, but by the end of the week you would definitely feel better and healthier and lighter.

      WEIGHT LOSS IS NOT GUARANTEED. We are trying to permanently fix your weight problem. and the diet chart given to you would be changed as many times as needed to make you lose weight. But weight loss totally depends on your body’s response. I can guarantee satisfaction from our services but cannot guarantee weight loss. Any body who is guarantying weight loss is deceiving you for sure.

      I will also guide you in terms of recipes of dishes on chart (if needed), Exercises, and Lifestyle correction.

      I hope all your queries are answered. In case if you have more, ill be happy to help.

I’m not a gym person.. and i don’t want to spend much.

  16. Nirali Bhakta says

    Hi Payal
    I am a working women with height 5ft 4.5 inches and weight = 65 or 66 kgs. I wasn’t so much heavy earlier. My job mostly includes sitting, so have gained a lot of weight on my lower body, starting stomach. I want to lose a minimum of 7 kgs. I dont follow any diet, but here is my eating pattern (I am a Gujarati):
    Morning: warm water with lemon and honey (not every day, sometimes) otherwise just a glass of water
    Breakfast: Poha or sabudana khichdi or 2 toasted bread with little mayo or small uttapam or dosa, handvo with half cup tea with little sugar
    Mid meal (around 11.30 – 12) – 1 cup green tea (not every day) with one fruit (either an apple or 1 bowl grapes or 1 orange or 1 banana)
    Lunch: Usually 5 small size rotis with normal sabzi (many times potato base) with raw turmeric or curd. Also sometimes, its dal rice, or pulao
    Evening: Half cup tea with dry snacks (puri, khakra, Shankar para, chivdo etc) or a fruit sometimes or knorr or chings soup (1 bowl)
    Dinner: It is usually light, with dal rice, poha, sometimes full meal with roti, sabzi, dal rice or dal dhokli etc.
    I know this is a bit long, but I really need your help to tell whether the above is fine or what changes to make to the above. I really need to lose that weight as i want to fight in my old clothes that are stacked in my wardrobe 

    • says

      Hi Nirali ,

      i think you need to cut down on the quantity .. and some foods from your breakfast menu .. use the lighter option like vegetable ttapa , poha and upama , you can have skimmed milk with corn flakes too . you also need to add fiber to your meal in terms of fruits and more of veggies.

      more than food i feel you need to add exercise of 1 hour to your regime. gyming or walking should be good.

    Hello Mam

    I am from puna and leaving apart from my family ,and dinner at the mess please suggest me simple diet plan which will not includes fruits and salad

  19. Payal says

    Hello, I am 21 years old and I weigh 67.6kg. I workout 5-6 times a week, 30 minutes cardio and 30-45 minutes heavy weights. However my weight has been very stubborn since more than a year. I eat healthy but I must be consuming small amounts of junk food 4 times a month. Despite the junk food my calorie intake ranges from 1000-1500. My bmr is 1445 approx and fat percentage is 37.6.
    Kindly suggest an effective solution for me to lose 15kg and get my fat percentage down to 21. Thank you.

    • says

      Hi Payal , i think its more of the exercise part , you need to change your workout pattern to get results.

      Your body must have gotten used to the exercises and walking you do and now adjusts to whatever little calories you are intakingf. this happens in a lot of cases where despite of all efforts you dont lose a bit. breaking this plateau requires a lot of patience …. here is what you can do …….. exercise wise – stop doing what you are already doing for a week … and then you surprise your body with a new activity .. for ex – you have been walking all these days , so now change your activity to swimming / zumba dancing / skatting / gyming / playing badminton or lawn tennis … whatever suits you best. tai chi and kick boxing and pillates work excellently in such cases., i know its hard to find time and availabilty of such sports around you .. but if you want to get there .. you need to find harder !!

      Food wise – surprise your body yet agin by co nsuming food stuffs that you never did .. it changes your metabolic graph and hence makes you lose weight …. ex – if you have been eating wheat and rice as staples so far … dont eat them for an entire week , and consume other cereals like bajra , jowar , or ragi …. this funda has worked superbly with my clients .. you can try and see if it suits you too ..

    • says

      Hi Unnati ,

      there is no such diet for weight loss from a particular part of your body , although exercising the part you want to reduce from will help you in toning up the muscles of those area and look thinner. try walking , jogging , running, skating or swimming .

    • says

      Hi Nirali ,

      right now you need to only do portion control . have small feeds at 2 – 3 hours . but so not cut down on fod or your child will suffer. you can start a 45 mins walk though. this will help you in weight management till your baby is on top feeds .

    • says


      the diet you are following is good . but may be your body is now used to the pattern and hence not responding in terms of weight loss. if you change your pattern, and food items you will lose weight . have soups and salads for dinner . include some green tea ..

    Hi mam,
    My name is Ravinder singh. Age 24 height 170 cm and weight 77 kg. Mam I am planning to join Indian army. My ssb interview is in December. My weight should be within 65 kg Max. I want to reduce weight. Please help with your suggestions mam. I am writing down my routine.

    Morning: I swim for 40 mins or so. Then I do light exercise for around 30 mins.
    I come home and take hot lemon water with honey(one glass).

    Breakfast: egg white (of 1 boiled egg), one glass milk with a bowl of corm flakes.
    Lunch: I have 4 Roti’s, one bowl dish( daal or any veg dish that my mom cooks), salad with lemon
    Evening: milk or poha or some non oily snack that my mom makes
    Dinner: 2 Roti’s one bowl dish.

    I don’t eat between meals. I have around 4 litres of water.

    Now u suggest me what should I do to reduce my weight.

    • says

      Hi RAVINDER,

      Thank you for reading at dietburrp. i think you should include some mid meals, something like what is mentioned in the plan above. going light on dinners would also be of help , so try to eat daliya, upama, poha or any such snack items for dinner instead of eating roti or rice. also have lots of salad along with both your meals. breakfast luks fine. just add some more fruits.

      exercise wise plz read this – http://www.dietburrp.com/burning-body-fat-for-weight-loss/ burning fat is really important to lose weight. i think you will have to revise your exercise schedule with this.

    Thanks for the diet chart, it looks wonderful. I did not understand two things in your diet chart. 1) what is tomato veg? Is it a tomato curry? please clarify. 2) veg daliya – against which amount is 1. what is veg daliya? Thanks in advance.

    • says

      Hi Sweety ,

      Thanks for reading at Dietburrp. yes tomato veg is tomato chutney , or cooked vtomato curry. daliya is broken wheat / fada in gujrati. you cook this khichadi just like you cook rice and mmung dal khichadi with veggies, replace rice with broken wheat and add 3 times water to the pressure cooker. you will find the recipe on net , i am yet to post it on dietburrp . so it goes straight on my to write list :) amount is 1 soup bowl.

    • says

      Hi Diksha,

      I know how hard it is to control your diet when you eat at hostel. You can keep a lot of fruits and salad veggies handy and munch on them whenever hungry. buy green tea sachets and drink whenever possible. also start with exercising. coz hen you cant control your diet much, only exercise can help you well.

  54. Omkar says

    hello mam,

    4.30 am = tea
    8.30 am =3 chapati + 1 cup bhaji + plate rice

    Please help me mam.I want to reduce my weight upto 65-70 kg.Now planning for join the Jim.But its really hard that joining the jim and then got to work.
    Please tell me what to do? Give me effective diet plan.I am really upset.

    • says

      Hi Omkar,

      Thanks for reading at Dietburrp. Your diet looks ok , but exercise is missing from your routine. You really need to start exercising to lose weight. dont immediately join a gym, but first start with 45 mins of walking and do it for atleast a month , then introduce jogging in the last 15 mins , by doing this you would lose around 5-6 kgs in 2 months .. later you can join gym

    And Could you please guide me for how much weight is OK as per my height.

    • says

      Hi ,

      Thank you for reading at DietBurrp. Your weight should be around 60 kgs according to your height. Your schedule has a lot of time gaps. try to reduce them and eat every 3 houlry. also walking for 15 mins is not enough to lose weight. you need to walk atleast 45 mins to be able to lose fat weight . follow the above mentioned chart, and im sure it will help you in losing arounf 3 kgs in 1 months time.

  57. Manish Patil says

    Hello Mam,

    I am Manish.
    Age: 30 Years
    Height: 5 Ft 8 inch
    Weight: 74.1 kg

    I desperately need to loose my weight due to some personnel commitment. So have changed my diet as given below.

    Morning(Breakfast) 09:30 am :
    Hot/Warm Water + 1 Lemon + 1 Spoon Honey
    After 2 Hours 1 Cup Tea

    Afternoon (Lunch) 01:30pm :
    4 – 6 Boiled Eggs
    Two Lemons squashed on boiled eggs
    1 hour after lunch Normal Water + 1 Lemon

    Evening (Snacks) 06:30pm :
    If required or feels hungry goes with 10-15 Marie Biscuits of any brand

    Night (Dinner) 09:30pm :
    6 Boiled Eggs
    Two Lemons squashed on boiled eggs
    1 hour after Dinner Hot/Warm Water + 1 Lemon + 1 Spoon Honey

    This is my current diet plan. May be due to strong will power or physical support I don’t feel weakness/hungry/unhealthy while doing my daily activity.
    I have decided to check my weight after 3 weeks only. My target is 60kg.

    Kindly advice should I change anything in my diet.
    As I am living only on eggs for these days. Does the fat contents may harm in my weight loss program?
    How much time it will take to reduce my wight to 60kg with this diet plan?
    Any suggestion to achieve target earlier?
    Any other suggestion please feel free to guide me.

    Manish Patil

    • says

      Hi Manish …

      please include some fiber in your diet , or you would soon start facing acidity with only protein intake and no carb … this kind of diet is defianately not a balanced one and is unhealthy to follow in the long run. include lots of veggies, salads , fruits and increse liquids with intake of buttermilk , soups, coconutwater, green tea etc.

      As an expert in the field it is my duty to inform you that the goal that you have layed in front of you is also unhealthy. according to your height, your correct weight range is 67 kgs to 72 kgs. I dont know how much you would be able to lose with this plan in terms of weight, but you are already losing on your health and nutrient stores in the body. boiled eggs are good and warm water with lemon n honey is good too . but they dont provide you with all the nutrients that your bosyy needs for a normal and healthy functioning. you would soon start observing gastric disturbance (acidity, gas firmation, constipation, burning sensation during evacution, and changes in stool colour), changes in sin and hair too. you will observe mood swings and irritation, short temperedness etc.

      you eat 10- 15 marie biscuit in eve, its better to have 2 phulkas instead of so many marie biscuits, at 1 time.

      Hi Vatsal, please change your breakffast to something more healthier, have a small portion of what you are having but you need to add some carb to be able to cope up with your tremendous workout. have 2 slices of brown bread with green chutney or have oats or other cereals in milk .

      • mitali Indrodia says

        Thanks for your quick response Payal ma’m. this diet I am following since a month and workout since a week. I need an alternative method to compensate if i happen to break this routine once in a while. As if in between i eat late dinner even in small quantity, my weight shoots up. I have major fat problem around my tummy. Will you give personalised answers to all these queries if i register to your paid diet plans?

    • says

      Hi Nilesh ,

      Thank you for reading at DietBurrp. You really need to correct your eating system. No breakfast, that is why your quantity intake at lunch is high. Then there is big big big gap between lunch and dinner. I understand there may be restrictions on your time due to work. but you need to start having breakfast,. Then have a cup of green tea and fruit midway between BF and lunch . at lunch cut your quantity to hal . 2 chapati and 1/2 cup rice. along with salads. Have buttermilk later. you sleep immediately after meal (another reason for weight gain). Have light snack in the evening so that you eat less in dinner. have snacky items for a month so that you can lose weight. than again you sleep immediately after dinner…. dont have food immediatly after gyming. you can try following the above given diet chart to help you lose weight in the first month.

      Hi Trupti,

      Thank you for reading at DietBurrp. You can follow the above given plan for losing 3 kgs and then chage the pattern to lose further. you would also need exercises. if you are not already doing them, please find time and walk for 45 mins in the morning , evening or night , whenever it suits you.

      I understand being a working women, it would be hard for you to take small frequenbt meals all the time, but you can opt for options which are easy to carry or those that can be arranged at office as well .

    Weight: 122lbs (55.5 kg)
    I have two kids. Older one is 4 year old and younger one is 18 months old. After my 1st baby , I went down to 116lbs in 11 months. But after having 2nd one, i have a heard time loosing weight.
    I am full time worker as well as house wife and active mom in U.S.A. (very tough to find a time for Exercise)
    My Diet is,
    Break Fast : 7.00 AM
    10oz coffee with 1 tea spoon sugar
    10 salted almonds
    OR Some time spinach or dudhi paratha (Quntity-2)
    Lunch: At Noon
    1 cup Greek yogurt (calories: 140) with a tea spoon of flex seed powder
    ¾ cut sprouted mung
    1 apple
    Few carrots
    Dinner: 5.30 PM

    I can control portion size during day time but dinners are my weakness.
    I do not eat sweet at all (start doing that from Oct 2013)
    Right after both of my pregnancy I was 155lbs. After my 1st delivery I lost almost 39lbs in 12 months, but after having second one it is tough.
    I have lost 33lbs in 18 months so far. I do exercise here and there but not on regular basis. My goal is to go down to 110lbs (50kg) in next 8 months.
    Please provide your thoughts on this.


    • says

      Hi Priya,

      Thanks for reading at Dietburrp. The problem is exercise here ! actually after deliveries there are some body toning exercises which can get you back in shape along with diet. I am afraid, you are already in your ideal weight . Your BMI being 23.1 IT WOULD BE HARD TO LOSE ANY FURTHER WEIGHT WITHOUT HIGH INTENSITY EXERCISES. Diet wise i cannot cut your morning quantity of breakfast as you are only having salads for Lunch, if possible shif t=your routine and it should help you lose 1-22 kgs. also you need to cut down portion size for dinner to lose weight.l I would rather suggest you to change your schedule completely and try for a month, as your body would definately shed some weight due to routine disturbance. you can follow the above mentioned chart too .

      Hey Yatin ,

      You need to bring down your quantity intake. exercise is ok for the first phase , but if you dont reduce your food quantity, these exercises are not going to be enough and it wont help you in weight loss. you can follow the ddiet chart given in the article for better results . if not , you can cut down 2 roti and thepla from tea time and replace rice , and inner with daliya / khichadi. etc.
