By cutting out entire food groups, you’re also prone to nutritional shortfalls and boredom. Eventually, you’re going to crave the foods you’re missing. Even when the diet works, it doesn’t teach you how to maintain your weight loss. It’s just a gimmick to restrict calories.

Ans] The healthy weight loss range is 0.5-1 kg in a week. It is based on your body composition, and your BMR. To lose 0.5-1 kg weight per week you have to lose 500 calories per day. All you need to do, is follow our plan.

Q.11] I want to lose weight without exercise?
Ans] Physical activity is a key component of helping you move toward a healthier weight, as it can help you achieve the appropriate calorie balance. People who exercise regularly may be more likely to keep the weight from coming back after losing weight. If you do it, you will burn more fat.
Q.12] The heavier you are, the fewer calories you need to lose weight.
Ans] In fact, the reverse is true – the heavier you are, the more calories you can have to lose weight. This is because your body has to work harder to move more weight around and so burns off more calories as a result. It really is that simple. As you lose weight, your calorie needs will also drop slightly as you’ll have less weight to carry around. Your height and weight will be a factor in how much energy you burn. The more you weigh, the more energy it takes to move or maintain your body, therefore you will burn more calories.
Q.13] Diet foods/Fat-free/Low-fat foods are lower in fat and sugar.
Ans] Just because a product is labeled ‘fat-free’ or ‘low-fat’ doesn’t mean it’s healthier or even lower in calories.” What Does Fat Free Really Mean? For a product to be fat free, it must contain less than 0.5g of fat per serving. A serving of low-fat or fat-free food may be lower in calories than a serving of the full-fat product.
But many processed low-fat or fat-free foods have just as many calories as the full-fat versions of the same foods—or even more calories. The problem is that sometimes “fat free” is also, well, taste free. And to make up for that lack of taste, food manufacturers tend to pour other ingredients — especially sugar, flour, thickeners and salt — into the products. That may boost the calorie content.
Q.14] Exercise is enough; no need for dieting.
Ans] For a longer and healthier life diet and exercise are the only secrets. By only cutting back on calories or by only exercising, is not the smartest choice. You need to restrict calories in your diet to get fit—and you need exercise to keep it off or accelerate the process. The key to weight loss is burning more calories than you consume. Because 3,500 calories equals about 1 pound (0.45 kilogram) of fat, you need to burn 3,500 calories more than you take in to lose 1 pound. So if you cut 500 calories from your diet each day, you’d lose about 1 pound a week (500 calories x 7 days = 3,500 calories).
Q.15] Bread, pasta, rice and potatoes let you gain weight.
Ans] Wholegrain varieties of starchy foods like whole grain bread, brown rice, whole pasta and potatoes eaten with their skins on are good sources of fiber. Foods high in fiber add bulk to your meal and help you to feel full. However, cutting out starchy foods from your diet could put you at increased risk of a deficiency in certain nutrients, leading to health problems. It may also be hard to get enough fiber, which is important for a healthy digestive system and to prevent constipation. Healthy sources of carbs such as starchy foods like whole grain bread, whole grain pasta, brown rice, potatoes are an important source of nutrients such as calcium, iron and B vitamins.
By replacing fatty, sugary foods and drinks with high-fiber starchy foods, it is more likely you will reduce the number of calories in your diet. Also high fiber foods add bulk to your meal helping you feel full. You still need to watch your portion sizes to avoid overeating.
Q.16] Why Weight plateau occurs?
Ans] The reason you hit a plateau is that your body works hard to keep energy intake and output in balance. After your initial weight loss, your progress will slow down and eventually stop as your body adapts its metabolism to equal your energy intake.
Q.17] What is BMR and how it is related to weight loss?
Ans] It is specific to body composition, height and weight.
Q.18] Is it possible to lose 8-10 kg in a month?
Ans] The healthy weight loss range is based on your body composition, and your BMR. You probably can lose 8-10 kg in 1 month, if you are following a crash diet but you’ll feel terrible as they are not nutritionally healthy and balanced and most of the weight will return once you start eating normally.
Studies show that people who lose weight and keep it off over the long term get regular physical activity with a balanced diet. Healthy weight loss is one to two pounds a week.
Our weight loss plan helps you lose weight, and burn fat.All you need to do, is follow the plan.
Q.19] Can I skip meals to lose weight?
Ans] Skipping meals usually doesn’t help you eat fewer calories.
When you skip a meal, you’re more likely to get hungry and overeat. It’s better to spread your eating evenly through the day and eat smaller meals. In the long run, you’ll probably eat fewer calories with three small meals per day than with one or two large ones.
If you have diabetes, it’s especially important to eat regular meals and snacks. Skipping meals and then overeating will make your blood sugar problems worse.
Q.20] How often should I weigh myself?

Q.21] What do I do if I have overeaten some day during the program?
Ans] Don’t worry. We all make mistakes and the only thing you can do in such a scenario is to get back on track again. As long as you realize that you have to correct things and bring them back to normal, it’s ok.
Overeating or eating the wrong food occasionally happens with everyone. The immediate step would be to control the food intake over the next few days and exercise little more than normal so that you burn off those extra calories. The nutritionist will guide you in details.
Just keep in mind that this does not become a habit because that would steer you away from your goal. If you go for the junk foods, do control your portion size.

Q.26] If I eat late at night, will these calories automatically turn into body fat?
Ans] Timing doesn’t affect weight gain or loss, but it is true that body metabolism slows down at night, so while taking dinner at night it’s more important to check the portion size and the right healthy balanced meal. “It’s a matter of how many calories you consume during the day,”
Q.27] I’ve heard it is more important to worry about carbohydrates than calories. Is this true?
Ans] By focusing only on carbohydrates, you can still eat too many calories. Also, if you drastically reduce the variety of foods in your diet, you could end up sacrificing vital nutrients and not be able to sustain the diet over time. So one should concentrate basically on all the macro- & micronutrients.

Q 1] Certain foods help you lose weight.
Ans] There is no food that burns fat or makes you lose weight more quickly. Weight loss diets that focus on single foods, like grapefruit, cabbage soup or celery, are restrictive and lack nutrients needed for good health. It’s true that when you eat only one type of food, like cabbage soup, you might eat less and take in fewer calories than you need and maybe lose weight at first. But in the end, these diets are boring, don’t create healthy habits you can stick with, and don’t help with long-term weight.
By consuming different food products from the food group in right proportion, we get proper nutrition and good health.
Q2]100% fruit juice is best for you.
Ans] Extracting fruit juice is not so unhealthy but it reduces the fiber content and due to the lower fiber content in juice, the caloric concentration per gram is much higher in juice than the fruit itself. Therefore you should opt for a whole fruit over a glass of juice as whole fruit provides vitamins, minerals and fiber with less calories.
