Hi Kevin,

Really appreciate you taking your time off in promptly responding to people with utmost patience. Appreciate that.

Few clarifications wherein I need your help point wise please...
1) On day 3, followed as per plan. Following were the exceptions - I had pomegranates in the evening - 1 small bowl. I was vey hungry in the night so I had cucumber with a bit of salt and chilly powder - Is it okay???
2) Day 4, I did have the banana and milk today.However, since morning, I am leaving out a lot of gas. (???)
3) Since I was travelling, I skipped the veg soup at noon and continued the banana milk shake i was carrying. Is it okay???
4) For tomorrow Day 5, since I can replace beef with Chicken breast, please suggest what I should eat for lunch instead of burger as I have no provision to buy patties??
4)Before Diet, I weighed 79.3 Kilos, today morning (day4) I weighed 77.1 Kilos.
Can I expect to lose more in the next 3 days as the diet is going to get heavier with meat etc.,?
5)Also, post 7 days when I get back to my normal, I will subsequently get back to my weights at gym & protein shakes & lot of meat. Please let me know if you do have any plan post the diet, considering this.

1) Sure you will be OK.
2) To me, sounds like you have a dairy intolerance for sure. I know everyone cannot afford tests, this you do elimination Cut all dairy a week, then introduce it slowly to see how you do, It also could be a fiber increase. That happens to me when i simply eat too many green beans.
3) Sure, you did not have TO do soup.
4) Yes on chicken, but the breast is not best. It has few nutrients and less of the good fat, always try and mix the meat when eating chicken. the chicken breast fad is an American deal for sure and is not a good one.
4 again) Meat is not your enemy, well pastured grass fed meat is not. typical grocery store meat is not healthy. But your enemy like most is probably sugar, wheat (all gluten) and bad oils. It's time for a mind set change.
5) never over do meat, if you over do protein, the excess converts to sugar in the body, However every meal should be balanced with protein and good fats, veg and a good carb.

I do these plan, well the meat 1 but did 1 for vegetarians as well, the top 2 posts.

hamburger means meat only. I would never eat out, just too much junk in the food. however do the best you can :)

To truly eat healthy it has to be made at home from real fresh foods.

Hey Kevin, I have lost only about 3.5 Kilos as of today - Day6 morning.
My Question - Why is it that meat is not allowed on day 7, does it mean i cannot eat meat immediately from Day 8 onwards?
Can I eat some meat too on Day7? :)
Also, Which meat is recommended - Beef, Pork, Chicken, Lamb or Fish> considering I am going to resume my Intense weight training & Food/protein intake.
Please suggest

It just pulls it day 7, swapping to a good vegetarian day.

Yes, go back to eating meat day 8. My suggestion still, cut gluten and sugar, balance your meals properly. I only recommend pastured meat, not feed lot typical store meat. Do the best you can, a variety to me works. However I would not do pork unless it's pastured for sure, whey fed, etc.

On a personal note, have you studied what oxidative stress is from weight training, you really may want to look into it.

Avoid Gluten means, I should not eat rotis (oil-less) too? There is no gluten free wheat flour available here & Rotis is the staple food if not rice.
Also I have this habit of eating spicy food and ofcourse lot of fruit juices (citric). Any prob with that?

I love spicy food, eat it every meal (habenera my favorite). You just really should RD the issues with wheat, it's up to you. The problem is the wheat, well and the oil as well if it's a common veg oil.

Fruit juices, yes, it;s bad to drink your carbs like that. Imagine how many servings of fruit are in that juice. Good rule of thumb is 2 to 3 servings of fruit a day. Juice a beyond poor sub for real fruit.

Just the juice and wheat alone will cause weight gain. Like I old someone else, here in the US wheat rules. It's in and on everything, ever bath and body products. Do you not have millet, buckwheat flour or quinoa?

I am not trying to be negative trust me, it's just the truth about wheat, sorry.

Hi Kevin,

Your advise to avoid rice and wheat completely, left me feeling bad. Moreover, I an feeling even more pathetic that I have been thinking rice was the only culprit and wheat is my best friend! Huh! Well, based on your advise on other cereals, I have managed to get Bajra (supposedly a kind of millet) and experimenting. I am given to understand that continious consumption of Bajra only increases body heat excessively. Please suggest on this!

I did NOT say skip rice. White rice, especially basmati and jasmine / organic (although there are other good kinds) is great. I do say white is better as a simple starch. Brown can have loads of anti nutrients. I just don't eat the same food every day, diversify your carbs if you can.

What does it mean to increase body heat? I have seen that a couple of times.... Do you have buckwheat? I had to try it to do a food sensitivity test, it works great. I have a great biscuit recipe if you like.

Refer to this link: http://beautyhealthtips.in/tips-to-reduce-body-heat-food-controls-your-body-heat/

Buckwheat - not available here.
I tried eating Bajra ( a kind of millet) mashed and cooked in water, it was just tasting yuck!!! So having oats.

Any suggestions on pre and post workout diet for me to get a chiseled look body. The concern is particularly my tummy - lower abdomen. Request some advise here.

Thanks!

Low body heat, below normally means your health is off, Mine is in the 97's all the time.... Meaning I have issues and I know I do from lack of sleep caring for a disabled wife. Mine are adrenal burnout and high cortisol issues (I was tested to see). I am working on those.

Such a bad point of view, one that likely nobody follows except a diet site with no real author to it. If you look at this site, it's copied from somewhere and they will not even quote from who. Trust me, oats are far worse than millet when it comes to health.

However oats are better than plain wheat. But not if you are gluten sensitive. It is the same then.

Spicy foods are amazing, you want your metabolism to go up. Sure stay away from fried foods, I agree on the oil choices they say. But trust me, most folks issues are not am I eating higher heat foods. It's SUGAR, PROCESSED FOODS, WHEAT-GLUTEN, BAD OILS, etc. If you have perfected a diet then want to follow something like this, then so be it.

If you want to learn about real health, mercola.com (mainstream, more basic in a sense) or chriskresser.com (very detailed and intense, he is beyond studied)

I eat no grains now, and have no desire to, my food sensitivity test from Cyrex Labs (google it) will be done soon. I will now what carbs I can have. Right now plantains, winter squashes and fruit are great. I feel amazing!

When folks carry weight in their stomachs, it commonly can mean high cortisol problems or thyroid issues.
