Obesity is the precursor to a horde of ailments. The beer fat on your belly might look cute to your wife and friends, but it is actually a silent killer. Rising cholesterol, back problems, breathing difficulties, diabetes, sleep apnea, osteoarthritis, fatty liver problems, and the deadliest of all -̶ heart disease. The list of demons an obese person may face is inextinguishable.


The only weapons against obesity are exercise and a controlled lifestyle, including healthy eating habits. While you cannot always exercise to burn your calories, you can definitely control the intake of your calories and fatty food.

Here’s a 7-day vegetarian diet that will help you lose weight in a healthy manner. Forget the palpitation-giving weight-loss pills that give you abnormal results. This diet chart given by Saint Dr Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan, the spiritual master of Dera Sacha Sauda, will nourish your body while cutting out the obesity-causing agents.

Avoid tea, and replace sugar with sugar-free tablets. Do not fry the vegetables, steam them. Ghee use should be limited to the instances the diet chart suggests. This regime can be repeated twice every month and can help you lose up to 3 kilograms every week. And yes, NO ALCOHOL.

The chart may seem difficult to follow at first, but eventually you will get used to it and you’ll notice visible differences.
