1. Hot lime water with honey (or) Green tea- when these beverages are consumed on empty stomach, it regulates metabolism helping us to reduce weight. Hence it is necessary to consume it as a part of the weight loss program.

2. Consuming oats or protein meal instead of dosa or idly for your breakfast would reduce the calories as they are good source of proteins which enhance weight loss.

3. Initially it’s difficult to change your eating habit drastically, so it is necessary to slowly minimize the food consumed and in order to do this it is done over a period of 3 days. Since day one is when you start up with your weight loss program, having a cup of rice along with chapathi will reduce your hunger. The three different steamed vegetables will give you extra fullness with low calories.

4. After three days the food consumption is further reduced where rice is substituted with wheat rice. Wheat rice is good source of fiber that helps in weight reduction and it simultaneously gives fullness. The quantity of chapathi is reduced to one. Vegetables are an essential part of a healthy diet and hence they are added

5. Further the food consumption must be reduced and so it must be either wheat rice or 2 chapatis. In this stage, your body gets used to this type of eating habit where less food is consumed.

6. This same eating habits are also followed for dinner where the food consumption is reduced day by day

7. Consuming sprouts or fruits as an evening snack helps to prevent food craving and also gives you fullness in a healthier way thus enhancing weight lose.

Ø  Apart from the diet, exercise plays a vital role in weight reduction program so prefer simple exercises like skipping or walking. When it comes to skipping, start with minimum 50 jumps and increase it every day by 30 jumps.

Ø  It’s really important to follow “the water mantra” (mentioned below) because without proper water intake, your weight loss will not be easy!

Apart from this food chart, just follow these simple tips on how to reduce weight in home in 10 days:

1. Increase Water Intake (the water mantra):

Water is a very important factor in a weight reduction program. Consumption of water cleanses the toxins from the body in the form of urine. Drink about 4 to 5 liters of water every day. A simple way to identify how many liters of water your body needs is to divide your weight by 20 and this will give you the number of liters of water to be consumed per day. For example: If you weigh 70 kgs, then dividing it by 20 gives 3.5, so you will have to drink min 3.5 liters of water a day. This is a necessary step to weight loss in 10 days.

2. Green tea instead of coffee or tea:

Drinking a cup of hot green tea every morning on an empty stomach can cleanse the toxins in our body and reduce the problem of constipation. Green tea has low calories and starting our day with it instead of tea or coffee is very good for weight loss.
