88-kilogram man lost 18 kilograms and revealed the secret of loosing fat

9 months ago

A resident of the Indian city of Chikhli, Gujarat, lost 18 kilograms in ten months and revealed the secret of success. This is reported by the Times of India.

Denial Patel, 24, gained weight while in college. At its peak, he weighed 88.4 kilograms. Because of the extra pounds, the man was often ridiculed by his peers. For many years, the Indian tried to start working out in the gym, but to no avail.

In the end, he decided to resort to intermittent fasting to lose weight. As a result, Patel managed to get rid of 18 kilograms in ten months. The Indian refused breakfast: in the morning he only drinks water. At about 11 a.m., he drinks a cup of milk, and after a while he eats two flatbreads with vegetable stew and raita - a dish of yogurt and cucumbers. For dinner, Patel makes himself two more tortillas with vegetable or bean dishes and salad. If an Indian is hungry, he drinks a cup of milk.

A man rarely allows himself junk food. At first, he completely eliminated sugar and fast food from the diet, but later began to go to a fast food restaurant once a week. In addition, Patel gave up soft drinks altogether.

Since the Indian could not work out in gyms, he began to practice home cardio workouts.

Patel believes that his new diet contributed the most to his weight loss. “I believe that there are no special secrets of losing weight: good old diligence and consistency give results,” he stressed. After losing weight, the Indian gained self-confidence, his self-esteem increased. He stressed that the experience of losing weight taught him that nothing is impossible.

Earlier it was reported that a resident of the Indian city of Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh, weighing 89 kilograms, lost 20 kilograms in five months. The Indian recommends giving up junk food, playing sports every day and eating right.

Excess weight is an actual problem, and people engage in sports exercises and follow various diets. Some facts about losing weight will surprise you. A lack of calcium in the body can lead to weight gain, the danger of loving low-fat foods, and 50 more facts about weight loss.


How to lose wight - interesting facts


Admit that you must have Googled "How to lose weight in three days" or "Keto diet." Many people have done this - come up with extra pounds and try to achieve perfection, eat nothing all day but an apple and a piece of cheese, and at two in the morning run to the refrigerator and eat three sandwiches, drinking cola. However, nutritionists believe that express diets before some important event are not rational: after all, no matter how much you throw off, during the holidays, you will probably “eat” too much, and later those extra pounds will return in double volume.


The amount eaten at dinner depends on the lighting

The brighter the light, the less you eat - German scientists came to this conclusion. The lack of light distorts the portion size (it seems smaller), and the amount consumed is more challenging to control.


15 minutes of jumping rope is equivalent to 60 minutes of running

According to biomechanics, running is a series of jumps with a relaxed phase of flight after a push. When working with a rope, the muscles of the lower leg of both legs are simultaneously contracted, and circular movements are made in the shoulder joints. This almost quadruples the load.


Everything is possible

The main rule of a good figure: is maintaining a balance of KBJU (calories, proteins, fats, carbohydrates). The balance looks like this: 50% protein, 30% fat, 20% carbohydrates for losing weight. The number of calories depends on the level of physical activity. Nutrition should be balanced and varied. Nutrient deficiencies can lead to health problems.


Fat-free foods can help you gain weight

Dairy products contain vitamins A, D, E, and K, but they are not absorbed without fat. Lipids signal the brain to be complete. If they are not in the dish, we eat much more.


Sugar is added to fat-free foods to add flavor, and these are fast carbohydrates from which you can get better.


Weight depends on the condition of the teeth

It has been proven that people with severe chewing surface wear, teeth diseases, and oral cavity gain weight twice as fast—reason: indigestion and metabolism due to insufficient chewing of food.


Short-term diets don't work

First of all, the body breaks up with water and only then - with fat cells. Slow weight loss involves a comfortable diet without starvation and stress, due to which the diet is easier to tolerate. Rapid weight loss negatively affects the work of the digestive tract and is fraught with food breakdowns and a set of extra kilos.


Overweight people have a normal metabolism

Overweight people use more energy. Each move and turn costs them a few more calories. Studies have shown that the metabolism of fat people is about the same as that of thin people.


Weight gain is a long process

Gaining weight is a long process, just like losing weight. If, after a piece of cake, the scales showed +300 grams, this is water, not fat. In the morning, the weight will return to normal. To gain, it is necessary to disturb the balance of KBJU and overeat systematically.


Aromatherapy helps you lose weight

Some aromas send satiety signals to the brain—for example, the smell of peppermint, apples, and bananas. Keep a bottle of essential oil on your desk and occasionally bring it to your nose when you get hungry. When choosing an apple or banana as a snack, try to chew it as slowly as possible to prolong the flavor.


The perfect snack - pine nuts

British scientists have found that pine nuts contribute to the production of cholecystokinin, a hormone that sends a signal of satiety. They are superior to vegetables, fruits, bread, and meat in terms of nutritional value. Bonus: pine nuts contain vitamins A, B, C, D, E, tannins, fiber, and carbohydrates.


Dog owners gain weight more slowly

Scientists at the University of Michigan have calculated that pet owners move 34% more every day! Walking the dog is a great cardio workout that triples your energy expenditure.


Sweets are allowed on a diet

For most, sweets are rewards. For this reason, they "seize" the slightest stress with sweets. Moderate consumption of sweets will not affect the figure. Opt for dark chocolate and fruits. Remember, PP pastries and naturally dried fruit sweets are no less caloric than traditional desserts. Don't get carried away!


Calcium deficiency increases appetite

Specialists from the Laval Faculty of Medicine conducted a study: they divided overweight women into two groups and offered a different diet. The basis of the menu of the first group was products with a high content of calcium, the second - with a low range. Result: a menu enriched with calcium helps lose weight several times faster.


Late dinner does not affect the figure

The rule of thumb for weight loss is that you spend more energy than you take in calories. The time of the last meal should be no later than 3 hours before bedtime. If you are a night owl, a late dinner is acceptable and indicated (people with different circadian rhythms have different metabolic patterns).


Long-term diets are ineffective

Scientists in California have proven that prolonged dieting reduces its effectiveness. To continue to lose weight, you need to diversify the menu and practice regular physical activity.


There are no harmful calorie foods

A common myth is that certain foods (celery, for example) take more calories to digest than they provide. Some vegetables and fruits help speed up the metabolism: radishes, broccoli, grapefruit, asparagus, carrots, and others. Their calorie content tends to zero. By eating fatty foods, you will not be able to lose weight!


"Liquid calories" in the account

Dieters scrupulously count every calorie, forgetting to add tea, coffee, juices. A cup of standard latte 500 ml - 256 kcal, fresh - 180! If your goal is to lose weight, drink water with a slice of lemon and a sprig of mint.


Dessert time – 17.00

French nutritionist Alain Delabaud is sure that the cause of excess weight is the inability to “listen” to the body. Hormones are produced according to the daily "schedule." The peak of cortisol synthesis, which is involved in digestion, is in the morning. Therefore, Alain advises eating more fat for breakfast.


Fast carbohydrates are better absorbed by the evening - with them, the amino acid tryptophan is delivered to the brain and promotes the production of serotonin - the hormone of happiness. This protects against food breakdowns before bed. Delabeau says: "The best time for dessert: 16.00 - 17.00."


It's easier to lose weight in winter

In winter, many get better. The reason: a decrease in motor activity, not a slowdown in metabolism (another common myth!). In sub-zero temperatures, the metabolic rate increases (to generate heat), and calories are burned faster.


Men lose weight faster

Scientists have found that men lose weight twice as fast. The reason: hormones that prepare the body for pregnancy take part in regulating female metabolism. When he receives fewer calories, any incoming product is stored as a reserve, transforming into subcutaneous fatty tissue.


Sleep deprivation leads to weight gain

During sleep, the body produces leptin, a hormone that stimulates metabolism and the mechanism of hunger/satiety. Constant lack of sleep leads to its absence. Outcome: metabolic disorder.


10-minute exercise against extra kilos

Daily exercise for 10 minutes by 11% reduces cancer risk, normalizes blood pressure, and helps burn up to 300 kcal. Charging can be replaced by walking - oxygen promotes the breakdown of fat.


Legumes make the diet easier

Legumes allow you to avoid food breakdowns. The effect is achieved due to the low rate of digestion. John Sievenpiper (St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto) proved that those who eat one serving of legumes a day do not experience acute bouts of hunger during the day.


All diets are the same

This statement was made by a group of researchers led by Bradley Johnston (Canada). The researchers analyzed 48 studies in which participants followed different dietary patterns. Regardless of the diet chosen, the average weight loss was 8-9 kilograms in 6 months.


Salt and diet are incompatible

One gram of salt retains 100 grams of water. The daily dose is 10 g (corresponds to a quarter of a teaspoon). Sodium chloride (salt) is found in foods: meat, vegetables, cottage cheese, and cereals. Half of the norm enters the body with them, and no more than 5 g is left for salting dishes.


Mono-diets are dangerous

Monidiets - the use of one product (buckwheat, rice, kefir) for a certain period. Such a change in the diet gives a quick result. In a stressful situation, the body blocks all sources of fat removal, and after the end of the diet, the weight will begin to grow. On mono-diets, they lose weight due to the withdrawal of fluid and the burning of muscle mass!


Herbal teas for weight loss do not work

Most of them act as potent diuretics. You lose weight by getting rid of fluids. Constantly using herbal teas, you risk getting dysfunction of the excretory system.


Fewer calories - healthier food?

In the case of olive, linseed, and other vegetable oils, this rule does not work. Their energy value exceeds 600 kcal per 100 grams! At the same time, nutritionists recommend not giving up oils during the diet - they improve metabolism and lower cholesterol levels.


Anti-cellulite creams do not help you lose weight

All creams, ointments, and gels - fat burners give an effect in combination with the proper diet and regular physical activity. They contain essential oils that improve blood circulation but not burn fat deposits.


Fasting days are useless when losing weight

It takes the body at least 72 hours to switch to fat-burning mode. Daily fasting allows you to get rid of excess fluid. After fasting days, the weight returns with the first meal! Nutritionists say: “It is impossible to maintain a normal weight by fasting one day a week and violating the rules of PP the other 6.”


You don't have to exercise every day

Physical exercise is a must. But the body needs time to restore the muscles - take breaks. Optimal schedule: 4 times a week for 30 minutes with alternating intense, moderate, strength, and aerobic exercises. This will help burn 50 to 100 grams of fat per week.


Exercising regularly, you need to adhere to proper nutrition

Constantly visiting the gym but violating the diet, you will not lose weight. It takes 60 minutes of exercise to burn off the calories of one sandwich of white bread, butter, and cheese, while a pork patty with mashed potatoes equals 20 kilometers of running.


One-time fasting does not “switch” the body into calorie-burning mode

On fasting days, when you limit yourself to a few liters of water per day, your metabolic rate slows down. This does not happen immediately - after 60-70 hours of lack of food. When you start eating again, your metabolism slows down, and all the excess is deposited in the form of subcutaneous fat.


It is impossible to determine the fat content of food "by eye."

Vegetable and butter, margarine - "species fats," which are very high in calories. Some foods contain "hidden" lipids. For example, in a vegetable salad - 20 kcal; if you fill it with a teaspoon of olive oil, the energy value will increase to 65 kcal per 100 g. The result: a dish with 70% fat in the composition. Control it!


Weight formula: height minus 110 does not work!

The ideal weight formula was invented 100 years ago by the French anthropologist Paul Brock. Modern nutritionists are skeptical about it: it does not consider the body's individual characteristics (for example, the presence/absence of muscle mass). The BMI formula is more relevant today: weight divided by height squared. For women, the optimal figure varies from 19 to 24.


Cellulite and excess weight are not the same

Cellulite is a consequence of hormonal imbalance or water-salt metabolism. There are more reasons for excess weight: sedentary work, overeating, not maintaining the balance of KBJU, and others.


Being overweight is not related to heredity

It has been proven that being overweight is a complex phenomenon. Genetic predisposition is one of the reasons, along with hormonal changes, neurological and psychological factors. In 50% of cases, excess weight results from overeating and an unbalanced diet.


Strength training for weight loss equals cardio

Common myth: High-intensity cardio is effective for burning fat. Aerobic exercise should not be more than 20 minutes so as not to "burn" the muscles along with extra calories. Strength training is essential! The more muscles in the body, the more calories are burned at rest.


Bath and sauna do not relieve excess weight

High temperatures stimulate blood circulation but do not get rid of fat. Lipids are broken down during specific chemical reactions, and it is impossible to “evaporate” them. In the bath and sauna, weight loss is due to fluid removal. Steam rooms work in conjunction with physical activity and proper nutrition.


"Local" weight loss is a myth

You can not lose weight only in the buttocks or abdomen! Adipose tissue has nothing to do with nearby muscles. Doing exercises in one area strengthens the muscle corset, and lipids are burned everywhere.


Cutting out carbs won't help you lose weight

Weakness, irritability, lethargy, memory impairment, and insomnia result from carbohydrate-free diets. Without carbohydrates, the body goes into the saving mode, storing fat with each meal. In combination with an excess of protein, this leads to cholesterol plaques.


Mechanical impact on body fat - impossible

Slimming procedures (massage, lymphatic drainage, electrical stimulation, etc.) stimulate blood circulation and metabolism but not break down lipids. For maximum effectiveness, all types of massage should be combined with proper nutrition and cardio training.


You can eat at night

If you are a "night owl" and are not going to bed until 3 am, eat at 12! The body will have time to digest food without consequences. Sleeping on an empty stomach is the cause of insomnia and food breakdowns during the day.


Eating disorders are acceptable

Cake with fat cream will not affect the weight in any way. Nutritionists recommend pampering the body once a week to control appetite. "Reliefs" should be planned - include them in the weekly meal plan.


A weight loss plan may not work

The nutrition plan is developed individually, taking into account the organism's characteristics and physiological indicators. The diet that your friend lost weight on may not work for you due to different metabolic rates, hormonal levels, and other things.


Plant foods don't help you lose weight

Myth: A vegan diet will help you lose weight. Weight gain depends on the presence or absence of meat and animal products. Refusing the latter, the body begins to demand more carbohydrates. Result: extra weight.


Exercise doesn't make you hungry

You are feeling a little hungry after a workout is regular! This indicates an intensive work of metabolism. After the gym, you need to eat no later than 40 minutes to restore energy. Choose protein and fiber if you're looking to lose weight and slow carbs if you're gaining muscle mass.


You don't have to cut out sugar completely

In Edinburgh, scientists conducted studies that proved that a small amount of sugar in the diet contributes to weight loss. The experiment involved 60 women; they were divided into two groups. Sugar was eliminated first. The second - left, picking up an individual "dose." Weighed in two months later, the sugar group lost more pounds.


Have breakfast

A hearty breakfast helps control weight - this is the conclusion of a group of scientists in Cambridge. By eating 50% of your daily calorie intake for breakfast, you give your body time to process them. Without “feeding” him after waking up, you risk switching your metabolism to the “fat reserve” mode.

The Indians are well known for their impressive and action-packed movies. This fight seems to be inspired by an Indian movie, where anything is possible, and the power of a striker is felt without actually performing it.

How funny this so-called title fight looks, a professional who knows the magic of photoshop and editing, if adding a couple of "BANG" and flashes of fire and traces of dust, we finally get a real movie.

The popularity of TikTok has grown in 2020 due, in large part, to the outbreak of the coronavirus. With people stuck at home, many have used the social app to create dance, lip-sync, and comedy. Indeed, TikTok has turned many unknown simple users into internet superstars. But what are the best TikTok alternatives?

Many government officials are concerned that the Chinese company behind TikTok is collecting telephone data for the Chinese government. India has already banned the application and even the US government is investigating the application for possible violations of children's privacy laws.

While you might enjoy watching TikTok videos, in the future it may be blocked from your phone. You may like the idea behind TikTok, but you want to use something like that. Regardless, there are applications like TikTok that have many of the same functions. Here are our picks for the best TikTok alternatives.



Byte is one of the newest alternatives to TikTok. This is an app from one of the developers of the Vine app that was used to popularize short videos for mobile apps. Application downloads increased last summer. Users downloaded it to make short clips that can loop over. The app also has its own "Communities" where you can browse videos in the categories "funny", "horror", "cinematic" and so on. It's one of the easiest and best applications like TikTok.

2. Chingari


India has already banned TikTok and other similar video content applications, so new applications that offer the same services are being created very quickly. One of them that has become popular in this country is Chingari. As with TikTok, developers can quickly record and download short videos, often with music and other audio tracks. Users can share videos with family and friends. Although some features of TikTok are missing, more will likely be added in the coming weeks and months. This app is a great alternative for the people of India as it is from there.

3. Dubsmash


Dubsmash has been around for a few years but has many of the same popular features as TikTok. The main function is that video artists can select music or audio content and then record a video on the subject of the clip, with the lips synchronized with the sound. It became very popular a few years ago but has lost many users to other applications over time. In the TikTok era, however, Dubsmash got a second chance and is now partially gaining popularity again. In addition to the lip-sync features, you can add visual effects to your Dubsmash videos.

4. Facebook


Facebook is the original king of short videos. They are easy to download and distribute. They can also go viral very quickly. Also, the Facebook app has a full video content section so you can easily manage your content. Of course, you'd probably want to create your page instead of using your regular profile. However, Facebook is one of the few platforms that work with shorter videos, or you can start live if you want to do longer things.

5. Instagram


Instagram is another decent site for short video content. You can post videos on your feed using different hashtags to grab the attention of non-subscribers. Of course, you also have the option to create live videos, post videos in your stories, and much more. For the most part, it's almost as good as Facebook.


Price: Free with in-app purchases.

Likee is one of the most popular TikTok alternative applications on the list. It's like a mix of YouTube and TikTok. You can make shorter videos just for suggestions or you can go live and make long content if you want. Of course, viewers can choose from a wide variety of content. There are a couple of filters like the hair color changer and a few other things. It's a little closer to TikTok than most of the others on the list, and overall, it's a worthy alternative.



Snapchat has been around for a long time, of course. However, it has also gained popularity this year, thanks in part to the success of TikTok. Snapchat has been used for years to create short videos that are meant to go away after a relatively short period. It can also be used for personal communication, photo sharing, and more. It is one of the best known and best TikTok alternatives out there.

8. Triller


Triller is a relatively new addition to the short video mass. However, it is used by musicians like Chance the Rapper and Justin Bieber to promote their music. Even comedians like Kevin Hart used it to download comedy videos. With Trill, not only can producers create their videos, but societies can also collaborate on video production. You can also add filters, text, and other effects to any video.

9. YouTube

Price: Free / $ 12.99 per month.

YouTube isn't the best platform for creating short videos. The company reduced this capacity many years ago in favor of longer content. However, it is one of the best websites for viewing short content in the form of video compilations. There are tons of video compilations from TikTok, Vine, etc. that show you many of the most popular things on the platform without the need for the platform itself.


Price: Free with in-app purchases.

Zoomerang is not a video viewing platform. However, it is a great short video editor for Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, and more, which easily replaces the TikTok app. This one comes with some fine tricks and effects. There are over 100 such effects in the library. There is also an optional ad-free editing subscription and some additional features. Finally, developers have an influential presence on social media and sometimes post videos of the creators to give them a little bit of potential.

How many times have you heard that if you're on a diet, you don't have to eat anything after 6:00? So be it? The most deceptive rules of diets, written by Bemorepanda.


So give up the harmful tricks and follow some golden rules that will surely be beneficial for your body.


1. High-fat foods add extra pounds to the scales


Fake! It depends on the type of fat consumed. Fats in chips, cookies and oily foods increase cholesterol levels and, with it, the risk of more diseases. Good fats, however, those taken from nuts, avocado or salmon, for example, protect your heart and greatly improve your health. Consumed in a healthy lifestyle, these fats prevent you from gaining weight.


2. Avoid snacks between meals


Fake! Small portions, consumed between meals, are the best way to overcome hunger. All you have to do is reduce your portions and opt for healthy foods. Walnuts, fruits and natural yogurts will provide you with energy for a whole day.


3. All calories are the same


Fake! The type of calories and their quality can influence the effect on the body. Food gives rise to various reactions in our bodies, so the type of food is an extremely important factor in the diet. For example, the 50 calories in an apple can give rise to completely different reactions from those in a cake. Nutrient-free calories - empty calories - are found, for example, in french fries.


4. Give up carbs


Fake! Carbohydrate studies are often misinterpreted. Indeed, if consumed in excess, refined carbohydrates (white bread and white rice) can cause weight gain over time and increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. But there is no evidence that those healthy carbohydrates from whole grains, fruits and vegetables would affect health or influence weight gain.


5. Consume as much protein as possible

Fake! A diet based on high protein intake will not have spectacular results. In addition, she is not healthy. The body needs three macronutrients: protein, carbohydrates and fats. Focusing exclusively on protein is pointless. Not only will you drain your body of fiber and other antioxidants found in healthy carbohydrates - whole grains, fruits and vegetables - but there is also the risk of including too much fat in your diet, thus raising your cholesterol and triglyceride levels.


6. Remove gluten from the diet


Fake! There is no evidence that gluten is a fattening ingredient. The danger is excessive consumption of refined grains - foods made from white flour or other refined grains. Moreover, removing gluten from the diet means a deficiency of fiber, iron, vitamin B12 and magnesium.


7. You burn more calories if you exercise on an empty stomach


Fake! Skipping the table before exercise can cause massive loss of muscle mass. Before you start exercising, eat a sweet fruit - banana, peach, mango. Contrary to appearances, a square of dark chocolate is recommended before going to the gym. It will increase your energy considerably!


8. Skip breakfast to be able to consume more calories for lunch and dinner


Fake! The tendency is to increase calorie intake at lunch and in the evening, when the body's activity begins to decrease. In most cases, excessive consumption is installed in the late hours, due to the low calories in the morning portion. In fact, the most spectacular weight loss was recorded in subjects who ate a hearty but healthy breakfast.


9. Eat the egg white, throw the yolk


Fake! According to recent studies, egg yolk ensures the increase of good cholesterol. Compared to egg white, which provides only protein, egg yolk contains carotenoids, essential fatty acids, vitamins A, E, D, K. In other words, eggs are the perfect food. However, limit consumption to a maximum of 4 per week.


10. You burn more calories if you eat raw food


Fake! Although many foods are healthier when eaten raw, this does not have to be the rule in all cases. Many studies show that when cooked, food changes its nutritional values.
