Sugandha had touched 99.6 kg one yr again and was beneath duress due to her joint pains attributable to autoimmune illness. She was going for at least 30-45 minutes stroll 4 occasions per week. Although she wished to do all of it seven days, her low vitality ranges made it troublesome for her to take action. After attempting to do numerous restrictive diets like egg food plan, Keto, no fats, excessive fats, low carb, and so forth, she did not shed weight because it was troublesome for her to remain happy with what she was consuming.

When she did not proceed, it affected her psychological well being, and she or he discovered her consuming all of the banned meals in double the amount.
Then at some point, when she known as me to speak about her points, we determined to strive OMAD, aka One meal a day. She took a while to get used to the thought, after which got here the Sawan month. Sugandha fasted on Mondays and favored the thought of consuming every kind of meals as soon as a day with out punishing her style buds. That was the sport changer for her. In a single week, Sugandha was 95.65 kg.
She was completely happy, so she despatched me this image of her weighing scale.
