How difficult is it to lose 20 pounds in a year without medications or any drastic moves!
One of my best friends who is a professor at a renowned University here, did just that, by doing something along with a list of the regular things that we all do, to get a few pounds out of us.
He told me that he just stopped - I mean totally stopped - eating out in Restaurants ! Add that to regular exercise and good food and he dropped 20 pounds in a year. That's really impressive.
I have been watching what I eat. I even did a chart of my weight for 2011 along with my eating patterns ( I maintain an Excel Sheet which I update everyday). I also noticed that whenever, 'Eating out' went up, my average weight also went up.
My New Year's resolution -
Cut down eating out in Restaurants.
That said, I found this interesting in 'The Hindu' today:
What’s cooking: Sample dosas with a heavy health accent- Arukampul, Chirukurichan, mudakathan, thuthuvalai, karisalangankanni and vallarai- something your doctor and grandma would be happy about!
Trade Secret: The USP of this eatery is the medicinal value invested in every entry. The menu outlines health benefits of each item and also offers recommended items for diabetics and people with high Blood Pressure. These include ragi, corn and wheat dosas. All for Rs. 25
