What I Ate To Lose 30+ Pounds In A Few Months.

For years I only spoke about wanting to lose weight, but I never put in any real effort towards it.


From May, 2018 I started eating healthy and after a month I started intermittent fasting, as a result of which I’ve lost around 40 pounds till date. I shared a few weight loss tips in a post I wrote two months ago, you can check it out here.


I did a lot of research about what I should eat and what I shouldn’t, but I had to experiment a lot as well. I am intolerant to many foods, so observing how my body reacted to different food items was also important.

  • What I ate in a day in my first month of healthy eating, when I ate 3 to 4 meals a day :

1) Before the morning workout :

– A small fruit (apple or banana)

– A small bowl of oat bran porridge (or a slice of brown bread with peanut butter.)


2) After the workout / Breakfast :

– Oat Bran porridge with apple and banana

– 2 eggs with brown bread (or chapatis)


3) Lunch :

– Protein (chicken, eggs or cottage cheese)

– A cooked vegetable

– A complex carb (chapati, brown bread or brown rice)


4) Snack :

– A bowl of yogurt

– A small bowl of nuts (or air-popped popcorn)


5) Dinner :

– Salad

– Protein (chicken, eggs or cottage cheese)


  • Additional tips :

– Vegetarians can eat cottage cheese, which is a good source of protein.

– You can also have rice with pulses for lunch.

– The eggs can be prepared in the way you like, they do not always have to be boiled.

– In India we eat a bread called chapati. I usually eat chapatis instead of brown bread.

– You can chop any of your favorite vegetables for your salad. Try to avoid the salad dressings and stick to the plain old lemon, salt and a dash of olive oil.

  • Intermittent Fasting :

From the end of June, 2018 I started intermittent fasting. I had already got used to the healthy eating, so I stuck to that, and incorporated a feasting and fasting window.

I first started out with an eight hour eating window and then slowly reduced the number of hours. I now eat only one meal a day – I eat the same amount of food I would normally eat in an entire day, except that I eat it all in an hour or two. It is important that you get all your nutrition from the meals you eat, do not starve as it will have a bad effect on your health and metabolism.

  • What I eat for OMAD (One Meal A Day) :

I break my fast with lemonade with stevia (I use stevia as I have a sweet tooth, but it isn’t a must.)


1) First course :

– A huge bowl of salad (or oat bran porridge with apple and banana)


2) Second course (The Main Meal) :

– Protein (eggs and chicken or cottage cheese)

– A cooked vegetable

– A complex carb (brown rice, brown bread or chapatis)


3) Third Course :

– A bowl of yogurt

– A bowl of peanuts, almonds and sunflower seeds

– A few pieces of peanut brittle

I have clicked pictures of the meals I ate all these months, and I have uploaded them on Pinterest. You can check them out @The Kind Tempest on Pinterest.
