There is nothing extraordinary about this post. Instead, it’s exactly the opposite. It discusses my Dad’s diet, which has been simple, no figuring out the TDEE, no macro calculations, no carb loading, and no keto or paleo variations.


Our lives have become complicated, and the least we can do is to keep our diets simple.


My dad (who is 60+) is healthy despite a few glitches here and there. He has been eating a simple meal since childhood, as have millions of people like him of his generation. Back then, dieting and weight loss was not a big industry!


There were not many foods that were marketed as diet, low carb, low fat, etc. Most of all, there weren’t many distractions back then. They used to eat a simple diet of ‘dal roti’ as he puts it, exercise a bit and stayed healthy.


So, in conclusion, it’s not really what you eat but what comes in your way!


A trip to the supermarket says it all! All the food that you should not be buying is at eye level.


The most simple diet plan will consist mainly of plant foods.


It will have a few core ingredients that you can easily find at your grocery store. Here is a sample ‘simple’ diet plan you can eat every day and stay healthy:


Ingredient List


-Vegetables: Spinach, Carrots, Cucumber, Tomatoes, Onions, Garlic and Ginger


-Fruits: Oranges, Apples, Papaya, Coconuts


-Carbs: Brown Rice, Quinoa, Sweet Potatoes, Whole Wheat Bread, Roti


-Protein: Milk, Eggs, Lentils, Chicken, Fish


-Fats: Coconut Oil, Desi Ghee, Olive Oil


Sample Diet Plan


-Eggs with Whole Wheat Bread


-Dal, Subzi, Roti with salad


-Chicken Curry with Brown Rice


Honestly, all this looks simple in theory, but when it comes to actually implementing this simple diet plan, the problem is not this plan but what distracts you.


So my suggestion is to keep it simple.


-Keep it realistic.


-Try to eat foods that are unprocessed.


-To do this, avoid anything that comes in a box or a wrapper.


All the best,
