1. How this man lost 21 kilograms in 15 months 

Subhajit Goswami was devastated when he reached a staggering 100 kilograms. Not only did being overweight put him at risk for a number of health issues, but it also made him the target of harsh criticism and judgment from others. The 31-year-old made the decision then to alter his lifestyle and live a healthy life. A look at his inspiring journey is provided here.

2. The turning point When I reached 100 kilograms, the younger members of my society began referring to me as Uncle instead of Bhaiya.

I was badly affected by the change. I began experiencing chest pain caused by high cholesterol very quickly. I went to a cardiologist and was told to change my way of life. So I started getting up at 5 a.m. and used a smartwatch to walk 10,000 steps.

I walk another 5,000 steps in the evening at 7 p.m. after finishing work to de-stress.

After a long day at work, I take the evening walk to relax and maintain my mental health.

Because it has less cholesterol, I cook with mustard oil or coconut oil.

3. My diet began with my breakfast:

 After 1.5 to 2 hours after breakfast, I had three idlis with sambar and a variety of fruits. For lunch, I had a small bowl of brown rice, mixed vegetable curry, fish curry, and vegetable salad. For dinner, I had three chapatis, mixed vegetable curry, and vegetable salad. I indulge in (what you eat on your cheat days): empty stomach in the morning Post-workout meal: 1 glass of warm water mixed with lemon and honey 1 teaspoon in the morning I only indulge once every three to four months. My cheat meal includes:

Homemade Pani Puri, Chicken Biryani, and Egg Rolls are all prepared in mustard oil only because it has less cholesterol. I swear by these low-calorie recipes: 4.My workout routine: Chicken soup, brown rice with soya paneer curry, vegetable salad, and I wake up at 5 a.m. and walk 10,000 steps. Additionally, after work hours, I walk 5,000 steps at 7 p.m.

5. Fitness secrets

 I revealed I discovered that being honest with oneself contributes to fitness results.

How do I keep myself motivated? I stay motivated throughout the day by exercising in the morning. Reading has become a habit for me. I find that reading books and newspapers helps me stay positive.

How can you avoid losing your focus? I used to watch a lot of OTT content in one sitting, which was bad for my mental health. Then, I made the decision to stop watching OTT content and start reading books and newspapers instead.

Additionally, I organize my entire day in the morning, compiling a list of all upcoming tasks to keep me focused. When the lifestyle is in balance, focus and discipline come naturally, and results follow.
