when did the turning point come
Dr. Seema says that I was always slim trim. After marriage and pregnancy my weight gradually increased, However, in between, I made several attempts to lose weight, which failed. But when I started menopause, the weight kept increasing from 71 to 74 kg. It was a wakeup call for me. As a doctor, I knew the consequences of being overweight and the impact it had on joints and bones. That’s when I decided to lose weight.
How was the diet
- Start the morning with a glass of water and then walk.
- breakfast- Protein shake with soaked almonds, 1 fruit, idli or oats or poha
- lunch- One plate seasonal salad, 2 chapatis, curd, lentils and 1 bowl of vegetables
- dinner- Salad, a roti and 1 bowl of vegetables
- Pre-Workout Meals- lukewarm water
- post workout meal 20 grams protein shake with soaked almonds in the morning and 1 glass of milk in the evening.
- Snacks- Tomato Onion Roasted peanuts or chickpeas with a cup of tea.
Dr. Seema says that my day starts with morning walk. The walk started with 1 km and now I walk 7 km a day. In the evening, I exercise for an hour, which includes aerobic, Zumba, yoga and a 20-minute dance routine. I do all these things under the guidance of a trainer.
According to Dr. Seema, I tried to eat more and more in the morning for my fitness. I drank a lot of water and ate a lot of salad.
What’s wrong with being overweight?
biggest disadvantage of being overweight It was that I always felt unfit. Dr. Seema says that I used to get tired very quickly even after doing some small work.
What changes did you make in the lifestyle?
According to Dr. Seema, being a doctor, I had a habit of sleeping till late at night. That’s why I used to wake up late. now i I go to sleep at 11 am and wake up at 6:30 am Am. Earlier morning walk was never a part of my fitness, but now I consider it as the best way to start my day. Evening exercise and yoga also give me new energy and good sleep.
What did you learn from your own weightloss?
Dr. Seema has learned many things while losing weight. She says that we should be aware of what is going on inside our body. Fitness is not a one day affair. So it is better to do it in a group than to do it alone. Most importantly, what I learned from weight loss is that it becomes a challenge for women to lose weight after menopause. In such a situation, weight should be reduced as soon as possible.
