When 31-year-old Aiswarya Pandiyan realised that she was inching towards the overweight category, she felt really dejected. Her weight loss journey is a living proof that lifestyle along with a rock-solid determination can contribute to tremendous health benefits. Read on.Name: Aiswarya Pandiyan

Occupation: Team lead

Age: 31 yearsHeight: 5 feet 4 inch

City: Chennai

Highest weight recorded: 71 kgs

Weight lost: 21 kgsDuration it took me to lose weight: 10 months

The turning point: Even though I had gradually gained quite a lot of weight post my marriage, the day I realised that none of my dresses fit me any longer was a huge shocker! I weighed 71 kilos and the fat percentage parameter had put me in the obese category. Even my clothing size had jumped from M to XL! Once, I realised that I needed to lose weight, I tried several diets to get back in shape which really impacted my immune system. Hence, I decided to stick Intermittent fasting and that is when the magic started happening!

My breakfast: I wanted to follow something which I could continue doing in the long run. So, being a South Indian I stuck to eating regular South Indian breakfast like idly, dosa, upma, ragi porridge in portion control.

My lunch: Curry, 1 chapati, a portion of vegetables, boiled legumes, 1-2 eggs, and buttermilk. I switched between chicken and prawns as well.My dinner: I made it a point to have a big, balanced meal for my dinner

Pre-workout meal: I worked out during my fasting window of IF (Intermittent Fasting), so I did not eat anything before my workout.

Post-workout meal: Almonds and 2 boiled eggs

I indulge in: Since I did not go for any diet, I enjoyed regular home-cooked meals. All my meals were balanced with carbs, proteins and fat and I also made it a point to drink a lot of water. Once a week, I would indulge in my favourite Dominos choco lava cake with white sauce pasta

My workout: Initially, I was not very comfortable with extensive work out sessions, so I chose to stick to walking and climbing stairs. Gradually, as I started to lose weight, I balanced my workout routine with cardio and strength training at home. I absolutely vouch on mountain climbers squat variations. I can proudly say that I never step a foot inside any gym and did all my workout at home! And by doing so, I have reduced my fat percentage and toned my physique.

Low-calorie recipes I swear by: Unfortunately, I have realised that I am not a low-carb person. I tried Keto, got sick and my immune system was wrecked.

Fitness secrets I unveiled: Intermittent fasting worked really well for me! Additionally, I ensured to stay consistent with my efforts, eat healthily and stay hydrated.

How do I stay motivated? Even though I received unconditional support from my friends and family in my weight loss journey, there is no bigger motivation than seeing yourself transform. Once, I could see visible results, there was no looking back. Every day felt like a new learning experience on my journey to lose weight.

How do you ensure you dont lose focus? One of the simplest ways of keeping yourself motivated is to take a look at your old photographs and see how far you have come in life. For me, it works as my greatest source of motivation and helps me to keep moving forward in life. I decided to create a Facebook page India Intermittent Fasting for Women to support women of all age groups who wish to lose weight and get back in shape, in a healthy manner. The page has more than 12 thousand members as of now, who motivate and constantly challenge each other to do better.What shape do you see yourself 10 years down the line? I see myself as a very healthy and active individual who is helping others to achieve their weight loss goals.

What are the lifestyle changes you made? I made a lot of lifestyle changes to reach my weight loss goal. Some of them included:1. Eating balanced meals

LIFE in lockdown hasn't been without its challenges but for many people it's been a time to reflect and reassess goals, priorities and, not surprisingly, health.

Gyms might've been closed for several months but that didn't stop plenty of fitness fanatics working out at home with the help of online body coach Joe Wicks, Zoom classes or daily walks, cycles and runs.

For some, it's been a time to clean up their diet and cook healthier meals, resulting in lockdown weight loss. But for others, too much free time on their hands, a bit of boredom and a slippery slope into bad habits like snacking on sweets or drinking wine or beer on 'school nights' has led to the pounds piling on.

The reopening of gyms in the north next week cannot come soon enough for Dunmurry dad-of-two Niall Jackson. For the last few weeks, the 31-year-old commercial sales manager has been back training outdoors at the side of Magee Health and Fitness in west Belfast but is looking forward to July 10, when it can throw open its doors to its members again.

A regular gym-goer, who trained five times a week; sometimes twice a day, Niall lost two and a half stone between September and Christmas last year. He put on a few pounds around the festive season and had been working out with a personal trainer to shift the slight weight gain, when Covid-19 hit the north and lockdown restrictions were implemented.

Furloughed from his job and living alone, Niall's motivation took a knock and he stopped training. As quickly as he'd lost the weight, dropping from 17 to 14.5 stone before Christmas, he began to put it back on in lockdown. A combination of lack of training, beer several nights of the week and frozen food and takeaways saw a stone and a half go back on.

I really went hard at it from last August/September, doing spin and circuits in the morning and boxing at night, says Niall.

I was very disciplined and lost two and a half stone, mostly through training. I'd just started with a PT from the gym when lockdown happened. To begin with, I did try and do a bit at home with dumbbells.

But training at home, indoors, on your own, just isn't the same and I lost motivation.

Dunmurry father-of-two Niall Jackson is looking forward to gyms reopening

Not wanting to join the long queues outside supermarkets, Niall stocked up on frozen food including pizza, burgers and sweet potato chips, something he'd never done before. He also indulged in takeaway food a few times a week. Unable to see his young son and daughter, he was also somewhat bored and started to drink more beer than was normal for him.

Because I was training five days a week and had the kids either Friday or Saturday, I'd only ever have a few beers on Sunday, while watching the football, Niall says. When I realised I was getting a bit bloated from the beer, I switched to gin and tonic but I didn't like feeling sluggish.

It's very easy to fall into bad habits, once the motivation is gone, and the weight just started piling on. But now I'm back at it and giving it 100 per cent, the pounds will fall off me as quickly as they went on.

Unlike Niall, west Belfast mum-of-two Eimear McKenna has never been a fan of the gym. As a child she carried extra weight and even when she played camogie and was healthy and fit, she still felt bigger than the girls in her team. After having her children, her weight steadily increased and she lost a lot of confidence. She joined a gym but felt too self-conscious and it wasn't an experience she enjoyed nor wished to repeat.

But lockdown has been a game changer for the 48-year-old, who works for the Housing Executive. When she heard that her sister-in-law Fiona Shannon, a PT who runs her own company, Shannon World Fitness, was launching a Zoom initiative Tribe 40, she signed up. Tribe 40 is an online boot camp aimed at women aged 40-plus and it ran from early May to June, over 40 days. In that time-frame, Eimear has lost a stone and a half, is feeling fitter, happier and healthier and is intent on continuing her home workouts and food plan when lockdown is over.

My 86-year-old mum moved in with us and I was looking after her, the family, working from home and I got into a bit of a rut at the start of lockdown, says Eimear. I was eating and drinking a bit more and not feeling great about that, when Seamus, my husband, told me about Fiona's online fitness venture for women in lockdown.

She had talked to other women who had put on weight over lockdown but there are those in the group who just wanted to stay active and fit when the gyms were closed.

For four mornings a week, at 7am, we all did a Zoom workout with Fiona. At the start we used tins of beans then moved on to proper weights. It was tough, she really pushed us, but it was great. And the beauty of it was that no one else could see me huffing and puffing about my own kitchen.

It didn't matter how I looked. I had it set so I could see Fiona but no-one could see me. That way, I didn't feel self-conscious.

During a weekly Zoom catch-up, the ladies in the group discussed other issues such as nutrition and calorie counting and Eimear began to cut back on portion sizes and cut out the starch and sugary snacks. As the weight started to drop off, she felt her mood lifting too. Her sleep was improved, her skin glowed and with a stone and a half off, the people around her began to notice a difference.

I know I still have a long way to go and I'd love to shift another five stone but honestly, I'm buzzing with excitement now. I'm up at 6.15 every morning, sometimes even before the alarm goes off.

I walk every day too to make up the 10,000 steps. The Fitbit's on the moment I get up.

The whole group went for a walk up Black Mountain last week and yes, I'm the heaviest among us all but it doesn't matter to me now. We're all on our own journey. For me it's about losing weight and getting my confidence back and I'm getting there.

As well as shifting a stone and a half, Eimear has lost 27 inches all over and dropped a dress size. But it's the impact on her mental health and wellbeing that her loved ones are commenting on too. While working out, she forgot to take medication prescribed for anxiety but her mood was so chilled, she didn't even notice at the time.

When Tribe 40 finished, Fiona sent me my own workouts to do because I didn't want to lose the momentum, Eimear says. She's starting up the Zoom group again on July 13 and I can't wait to get back at it.

We're off to Donegal for a break and usually, we'd be eating and drinking all round us but I'm sticking to the plan and bringing my weights with me.

I feel better than I have in such a long time. Lockdown gave me the opportunity to start working on myself and for me, fortunately, it's been such a positive experience.

Good news, carb-lovers you may not have to cut back on bread even if you're trying to lose weight, according to experts.

"People have demonized carbs as one of the main things behind gaining weight when that's not proven by evidence," nutrition coach and author Graeme Tomlinson told Insider. "It's 'calories in' versus 'calories out' [that] are going to determine whether you gain or lose weight."

Tomlinson, also known as "The Fitness Chef," recently posted on Instagram to illustrate how a humble slice of bread is often blamed for weight gain, when it is, in fact, what's on the bread that can tip dieters into a calorie surplus.

That's because, no matter how much you enjoy bread, it's rare to just snack on a slice alone. Typically, bread is eaten with toppings, Tomlinson said, such as toast with butter, peanut butter and/or jam, or as a sandwich.

Those toppings, particularly when they're calorie-dense foods like cheese or nut butter, can end up being double or quadruple the calories of the bread itself, he explained.

When trying to reduce or maintain body weight, many continue to assume that bread must be abolished from their diet. In terms of energy, there is no difference between white or brown bread. And whilst the latter contains more fibre [which may increase satiety], one would be better placed to evaluate total ingredients consumed with bread in order to determine a more holistic perspective. Not least because bread is rarely consumed alone. These additional ingredients equate to additional calories. In this example, smearing on a few of generous knifes of peanut butter and jam (components of a hearty PB & jelly sandwich) more than quadruples the total calorie content of the consumed food. Consequently, all of a sudden the debate is not about consumption of bread in the first instance, or its colour in the second. Adding an often invisible 10g of butter to a warm slice of bread will result in the calorie value of the bread increasing from 95 calories to 169. Thus, though its visibility is dormant, it is the butter that nearly doubles the calorie value of what we often perceive as the consequence of eating bread. Standing alone, bread is merely one calorie variable. Using the examples shown in my graphic, there can be multiple additional calorie variables. The quantity of additional variables will influence the overall calorie value of that eating episode. Bread may not be the problem after all. This principle can be applied to ones rationale when assessing and addressing their overall diet. In doing so, one can move away from unwarranted demonisation of a food which can be utilized as energy like any other. Of course, one may over consume bread. But unless their diet comprises of only bread, this is a mere contribution to a bigger sequence of variables. To catastrophize bread as a nutritional problem is to catastrophize a minuscule variable out of many. A calorie surplus over time results in weight gain, not bread. - - #portioncontrol #bread #toast #snacks #peanutbutter #jam #carbs #snackfood #fatlosstips #fatlosshelp #caloriecontrol #losefat #caloriesincaloriesout #losingfat

A post shared by Graeme Tomlinson (@thefitnesschef_) on Jun 17, 2020 at 10:38am PDTJun 17, 2020 at 10:38am PDT

This is true not only of bread, but other carb-heavy staples like potatoes,according to Bonnie Taub-Dix, registered dietitian nutritionist, creator of, author of Read It Before You Eat It - Taking You from Label to Table, and @bonnietaubdix on Instagram.

"It's not about the carbs, it's about the company they keep," Taub-Dix told Insider. Condiments and spread can quickly and surreptitiously raise the total calorie of your meal or snack and make it harder to keep track, she said.

However, cutting out the carbs themselves could actually backfire, Taub-Dix added, since there's some evidence that carbs, especially high fiber versions like whole grains, are linked to feeling fuller and more satisfied after eating. Carbs could even boost mood, according to some research.

"It's not just about what bread is providing nutritionally speaking but emotionally speaking," Taub-Dix said."If you're having turkey rolled up in cheese and lettuce, you can have 20 of them and not feel satisfied. If youwould have just put that on a sandwich, you would have feel like you had a decent meal."

As such, carbs can potentially be a useful tool for weight loss if they can help stave off snacking later in the day, she added.

Taub-Dix recommends trying to include some of each macronutrient carbs, fat, and protein when you sit down to eat so your meal or snack is nutritionally balanced but also enjoyable.

"That combination is satisfying for your body but also for your mouth and your mind," she said.

Cutting out bread, or carbs, entirely can also backfire if it makes you crave those foods intensely, leading to overindulgence later.

"If you're cutting things out, those are the foods that come back with a vengeance when you're off the diet and you'll gain back any weight you lost," Taub-Dix said.

If weight-loss is a goal for you, Tomlinson advises focusing on the total meal, including any toppings on your bread. This means using a kitchen scale or other tools to measure out serving sizes and see exactly what it looks like compared to how much you typically use.

"It can be a bit of an eye opener to see how many calories you were eating vs how many you want to meet your target," Tomlinson said."You can eat a lot of the foods you enjoy, you just have to understand portion sizes so you can eat those things and still meet your goals."

You don't have to constantly measure out everything you eat, though just try it a few times so you can get better at estimating a portion size, and how it fits into your own nutritional goals, he suggests.

With that in mind, including some bread in your diet can actually help with weight loss goals, Tomlinson said, since a diet of foods you enjoy is more likely to be a diet you can stick to.

"If you enjoy a type of food, you should include it. People will end up depriving themselves can end up over-consuming enjoyed food," Tomlinson said. "If you can take the diet you have and make the smallest change with the biggest impact, that's sustainable. It's about a lot of small little tweaks."

The best thing about making shakes is that you can use any fruit as per your taste preference, but at the same time adding fruits that can blend well without causing any reaction are the ones you should add to your shakes and smoothies. If you want to give your body the much needed boost of energy post workout, then this Papaya Banana Pomegranate shake is perfect for you.

To make this easy shake, take a juicer, add 400 gm pomegranate seeds and extract the juice. Next, cut papaya and banana, take a blender, add the fresh fruits along with pomegranate juice, blend all this into a smooth blend.

Next, add in chopped almonds and cashew nuts, then add 3 tablespoon condensed milk. If you want to make it a bit more healthy, then replace condensed milk with unsweetened fat milk and to add some sweetness you can add some honey. Blend it all again with some crushed ice and serve chilled. This heavy shake can be a perfect healthy meal replacement.

Both pomegranate and papaya are a good source of fiber, folate, magnesium and other vitamins, which will give your body the right amount of nutrition to stay energized and hydrated throughout the day. Moreover, the addition of nuts will add a tasty twist and amp up the health quotient of your shake.

So here you are on the Internet again, trying to solve one of life's nagging but important questions.

You're an adult. You eat lunch. Often, you pack a lunch and take that lunch somewhere to store and, eventually, eat that lunch. You like eating that lunch. You sort of like packing that lunch, because, hey, look at you go, entrusting one of the meals you eat during the course of your day to yourselfnot to some fast-food grease house.

But it's that middle part that's been bugging you: What the heck kind of lunch box does an adult carry?

When you were a kid, this was easy. The answer was clear: You carried a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles lunch box and only a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles lunch box. And if one of your parents bought you, by mistake, say, a Street Sharks lunch box, well then you let them have it.

But you can't carry a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles lunch box as an adult. Or, you could, but that's not really an adult look.

Don't worry. You're in good hands. Because like a good parenta parent that actually listens to you for oncehere are 15 lunch boxes (and bags!) designed to help you carry that lunch you so lovingly prepared for yourself until its time to relish in all its glory.

In your desperate search for answers, you may find other lists like this on the Internet. But this list is more like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and those lists are more like the Street Sharks.

In a world where we are rushing from meeting to meeting, running errands, driving kids around and exercising, preparing a healthy, nutritious meal for lunch or dinner is not always the highest on our priority list.

To lose weight, we might also consider meal replacements as they're quick and easy. However, the number of products on the market makes it difficult to decide which one to choose.

What is a meal replacement (MR)?

Meal replacements are pre-packaged bars or powders that can be mixed and consumed as a shake to replace a meal. Some of the replacements are energy (kilojoule) controlled and are successfully used for weight loss and management.

A protein-enriched and energy-controlled MR can assist with preserving lean muscle mass, as well as reducing visceral fat (the dangerous fat that sits around our organs).

Do meal replacements have benefits?

In terms of weight loss, both the types and quantity of foods we consume are important, and many of us find it difficult to control portion sizes. In addition, we easily consume foods high in energy with a low nutrient content, such as fast foods and refined starches (white rice, pasta etc.).

We should, however, consume nutrient-dense foods that provide a high level of nutrients with relatively low caloric value. The benefit of MRs is that they are portion-controlled with a limited number of kilojoules, added essential nutrients (vitamins, minerals and fibre) and are therefore considered to be a nutrient-dense food. They are also an easy and convenient way of preparing a meal, which limits the possibility of making an unhealthy food choice.

What should I be checking when shopping?

Be sure to check the label and ingredients list thoroughly. Make sure the MR has a balanced combination of the three macronutrients and not only protein but carbohydrates and fats as well. It should provide a wide variety of vitamins and minerals and fibre.


The value should vary between 800 and 1200kJ per serving. When calculating meals for a weight loss diet from foods, the values are generally around 1 000 to 1 400kJ per meal.

Therefore, you want the MR to have a similar energy value as it is a "meal replacement".


The source of carbohydrate should have a low glycaemic value. This means that the release of sugar (glucose) into the bloodstream should be slow, to avoid a rapid spike and drop in blood sugar levels. Rather avoid MRs that contain "added sugar" (e.g. sucrose, glucose, fructose, dextrose and corn syrup) as these have a less desirable effect on blood sugar levels.

A guideline for carbohydrate content would be around 15 to 30g per serving (which would again be the equivalent of a real meal carbohydrate serving).

3.Dietary fibre

When recommending fibre in real food items, we consider 6g per 100g as adequate. Therefore, when selecting an MR, the value should be around 4 to 6g per serving as well.

Fibre assists with lowering the blood glucose response after the meal and keeps you fuller for longer (vital when drinking a meal). Fibre is essential for maintaining regular bowel movements and can even, depending on the type of fibre, assist with lowering blood cholesterol levels.


Protein assists with the feeling of satiety, reducing hunger and ensuring that muscle mass is maintained. Aim for 15 to 21g per serving (which would be the equivalent of a protein serving for lunch or dinner). The meal replacement should be at least 15g of protein per serving. It is important to note that protein powder products are not considered an MR.


Your fats of choice should be monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Check that the saturated, trans and hydrogenated fats are minimal. The quantity of fats should be 5g to 10g fatper serving. Not all MRs contain essential fatty acids (such as Omega-3). If they do, it is a bonus, as these have huge health benefits.


Choose an MR that contains a wide variety of nutrients added, such as your vitamins and minerals. The quantity of these nutrients should meet at least 25% of the daily reference value. The bigger the variety, the better.

So, should I be buying a meal replacement?

Taking an MR is an easy practice to maintain good nutrition or to lose weight should your lifestyle not allow for preparing and packing three nutritionally balanced meals a day. It is also convenient when travelling when the availability of healthy meals is compromised.

On the other hand, the same objectives can be met selecting, preparing and packing real food such as a variety of wholegrain carbohydrates, lean proteins and healthy fats. Getting your nutrients from a food source is also more "bioavailable" (how well your body can absorb the nutrients from the food) to the body.

Should you decide to choose an MR to lose weight, it is recommended to do this with the assistance and guidance of a registered dietitian. They can assist you with strategies to keep the weight off once you have decided to include real food back in your diet. You can contact Nutritional Solutions if you wish to schedule a consultation.

If you are after those sweet gains, eating the right amount of protein is as essential as the training itself. Only training would not be enough to build a strong frame, you also need to aid muscle repair and regeneration by providing your body with protein throughout the day. An average adult need anything in between 1.6-2 grams of protein per body kilo per day if they work out actively.

The most convenient way to consume protein is to mix protein powder with water or milk/substitute and have it as an on-the-go snack after the workout. For the best results, use a protein shake blender to mix the ingredients. Alternatively, you can also snack on protein bars or the best jerky instead of chocolate or biscuits.

It you have a fast metabolism, consider taking weight gainer protein: these meal replacement powders have loads of carbs as well as protein, helping you gain weight easier as you bulk up.

Go down on the floor in a high plank position with one arm resting on the kettlebell. Do a push up and as you return to the starting position, pull the arm up that's not on a kettlebell in a rowing movement. Keeping your core engaged will prevent your hips from twisting. Place the hand back down on the floor and return to the staring position yet again.

(Image credit: Eric Leija)

(Image credit: Eric Leija)

Jump up and grab the handle of the kettlebell with the same arm that was resting on the kettlebell in the previous exercise. Your back should be straight, knees bent, glutes and quads engaged. Lift the kettlebell up using your glutes and quads until your are standing tall, then release it back down using one smooth controlled movement.

(Image credit: Eric Leija)

(Image credit: Eric Leija)

From here, you want to pull the kettlebell up using your biceps and back muscles. You want to pull the kettlebell up and back a bit in order to fully activate the biceps and the upper back muscles. Once there, release the kettlebell back onto the floor and return to the starting position.

(Image credit: Eric Leija)

You want to swing the kettlebell back in between your legs to gather some momentum and then swing it up and onto your shoulder. Make sure you have a firm grip on the handle and that you swing it around the wrist and not over the hand as you rest it on your shoulder. You don't want to injure your wrist by banging the kettlebell against it all the time.

Once the kettlebell is up at shoulder height, perform a deep squat, bending the knees and keeping the upper body tall. Push from the glutes and the quads as you stand back up, using your core to stabilise yourself.

(Image credit: Eric Leija)

(Image credit: Eric Leija)

Once you're standing tall again, you want to push that kettlebell up until your arm is fully extended. Keep that shoulder engaged and your body and arm straight, especially when your arm is fully extended. You wouldn't want to be unbalanced when you dangle a kettlebell over your head. Then, lower the kettlebell back down to the ground.

The final exercise in this flow is the most complex one too, the snatch. You want to use explosive yet controlled power all the way through the movement as you lift the kettlebell off the ground and raise it high above the head. Just like when doing the clean, you would like to rotate the kettlebell around gently so it doesn't slam into your wrist every time you do a snatch. Finally, lower the kettlebell down onto the floor.

Once done with the flow on one side, repeat the same flow using the other hand. Keep alternating sides until the 40-second set is up.

How does LeptoConnect work inside the body?

The research team behind the development of LeptoConnect has designed this supplement to target the root cause of persistent body fat. It is specially formulated for those individuals who have failed in achieving their weight loss targets despite taking all precautions in their diets and following a healthy exercise regimen.

The working mechanism behind LeptoConnect is its ability to address Leptin Resistance, an increasingly common health condition that slows down metabolism and deposits ugly fat in the body.

Leptin resistance is a medical condition in which the body fails to detect appropriate levels of leptin in the bloodstream. Leptin is a vital hormone that performs the crucial function of appetite regulation in the body. With higher levels of this hormone, the body feels satisfied with the portion size of the meal that is eaten, moderating an individuals dietary intake.

When disruptions occur in the production and detection of this hormone, the brain falsely assumes that the bodys cells are starving and not getting enough nutrients. In response to this wrong assumption, the breakdown of fat and carbohydrates is slowed down to conserve as much energy as possible to enable the body to carry out vital functions for performing daily activities.

LeptoConnect addresses this failure of information transmission within the body. The ingredients used in it not only enhance the functioning of the communication networks of the brain but also enhance metabolism and boost energy levels in the body. The combined effect of all these changes brought about by LeptoConnect is a drastic reduction in the weight of individuals combating stubborn body fat.
