Best Diet Plan To Lose Weight
Q) Hey Akash, Which is the best diet plan to Lose Weight?
Me) Best Diet Plan to Lose Weight?
Hmmm…I launched Fabulous Body to simplify things for people. And I’ll try and do just that.
I am a big proponent of the 80/20 rule. I apply it in every facet of my life. This rule means that 20% of activities give 80 percent of the results. When compounded, only 4% of activities can give 64% of the result!
Now that’s profound! When it comes to creating the best diet plan to lose weight, a calorie is King.

If you eat more than your TDEE, you will gain weight, and if you eat less than your TDEE, you’ll lose weight.

Yeah, I know, the type of calories also matters i.e. whether it is coming from healthy food courses like oats, eggs, milk, coconut oil, ghee and so forth or is it coming from simple sugars like donuts/pastries etc?
So How Much Less Should One Eat After They Have Calculated Their TDEE?
Anything starting from 10% <TDEE up to 30% should be the range. Anything more than 30% less than TDEE can be categorized as a starvation diet. In the short term, you may lose a lot of weight, but eventually, your metabolism will shut down, your hormones would be imbalanced, and you’ll end up gaining more weight in the long term.

Besides figuring out your TDEE and then the number of calories you plan to eat (10-30% less than your TDEE), one of the most important things is consistency with your diet plan.
I know many people who plan, prepare, visit the grocery store, and keep all their ingredients stocked up, but when it comes to cooking the meals and then sticking with the diet plan they created for themselves is a big problem.
What goes wrong? Few things.
-First, they are not really clear about what their fitness goal is.
-Sure, people want to lose weight, but for most, it’s just wishful thinking!!
-They haven’t written down their goals. Even if they have written it out in a diary or in the notes section on their iPhone, after a week, that statement gets lost somewhere.
The Practice That I Am About To Suggest Is This
Have a written statement of your goal. You can borrow this ‘Me Myself & I commitment form I stole from my Diet Planning Course. Here it is:
Write down your exact goal. For example, I, Ankur, commit to losing 3 inches from my belly, which equates to roughly 6kg of pure body fat by 29th December. This step is not complete unless you paste this statement where you can see it every day few times a day and really internalize it.
We all get excited at the start of any project, be it losing weight or starting a business. But when reality sets in, when going gets tough, when life gets in the way, we give up.
But when you have this statement as a reminder of why you started in the first place, it gets you thinking. It allows you to bring forth all the reasons why you want to lose weight.
-To look good
-To fit into your favorite dress or jeans
-To have increased libido
-To feel good-better digestion, improved immunity
-or just to prove someone wrong that you can do it!
Planning, preparing, grocery shopping even cooking the recipes are possible only when your reasons for wanting to lose weight are strong enough, and it with reminding your subconscious mind with a written statement that can be seen every day.
I hope this helps 🙂
