Weight Loss Story: “I Followed THIS Simple Diet To Lose 20 Kilos In Just 2 Months!”

The quest to lose weight is immensely exhausting, to say the least. Something similar happened with 34-year-old GeshMan Singh who tried gymming for 7 years but to no avail. He even tried swimming and several other diets to lose weight, but he did not find anything even remotely sustainable. This is his incredibly motivating journey of losing 20 kilos in just 2 months. Here is how he did this. 

Name: GeshMan Singh

Occupation: IT Head   

Age: 34 years

Height: 5 feet 5 inches

Highest weight recorded: 103 kgs

Weight lost: 20 kgs

Duration it took me to lose weight: 2 months

The Turning Point: There wasn’t any particular moment that led to the realisation that I needed to lose weight but actually a series of events. For example, I am the youngest in my family but because of all the excess weight, I used to look overweight. I also tried to go for a morning walk daily but I could not continue it.

In addition to several diets, I also tried working out in a gym for seven straight years but to no avail. Those diets were not sustainable and I gained double the weight after stopping them. While looking for a sustainable diet plan, I stumbled upon the intermittent fasting which is the 16/8 plan.

While I was very sceptical about following it initially, I witnessed incredible weight loss  after following this diet. The best part? I felt extra energetic throughout the day and my focus also improved.

My breakfast:
I do not eat anything in the morning.

My lunch:
2 boiled eggs with fruits

My dinner: 1 bowl of dal, a portion of brown rice, one chapati and a portion of chicken/fish

Pre-workout meal: I do not eat anything before working out

Post-workout meal:
I vouch on chana sattu drink

I indulge in:
I have an eating window of eight hours, so I don’t really avoid eating any specific food during that time.

My workout: I go for a walk in the evening.

Fitness secrets I unveiled: I have realised that contrary to popular notions, it is very crucial to eat on time to lose weight. However, at the same time, it is important to cut down all the junk and processed food items. 


How do I stay motivated? Once I began to see the change in my energy levels, it was enough to keep me motivated to continue my journey to lose weight and stay fit.

How do you ensure you don’t lose focus? Whenever I used to feel low and demotivated, I keep reminding myself why I began my journey to lose weight in the first place. This ensures that I stay right on the path of fitness.

What’s the most difficult part of being overweight?
When you are overweight, your whole life becomes a struggle. From not being to able to enjoy your life to feeling lethargic and low on energy always, it is a constant battle.

What shape do you see yourself 10 years down the line?
I want to stay healthy and fit throughout my life. I also want to guide people to become healthier too.

What are the lifestyle changes you made?
I completely stopped eating junk and processed food to become healthy and lose weight. I have also shunned all sugar-laden products completely.

What was the lowest point for you?
I realised it the hard way that cutting sugar from life is not at all easy. Additionally, when I first started fasting for 16 hours, it was incredibly tough for me. However, after 15 to 20 days, it became my strong point and now I can fast for 18 hours straight without any hunger pangs.

Lessons learnt from weight loss:
We need to understand that weighing machine will not show how healthy you are. Hence, instead of aiming to lose weight, we need to aspire to be healthy first.
