You dont have to necessarily start lifting weights the very moment you step inside a gym to lose weight. Weight loss is a combination of eating healthy and working out in a progressive manner a manner that enables your body to burn its stored fat over a period of time.

More importantly, working out doesnt have to be limited to only gymming. Working out can have many definitions playing a sport, indulging in an intense cardio session, swimming and even aerobics.

QUICK READ: This is how many calories you can burn without setting foot in a gym

20-year-old Harsh Haniya tells us that not only was he able to lose 32 kgs by following an aerobics-dominated workout routine but it also helped him change his overall approach towards fitness and become a Fat Loss Aerobic Instructor in his hometown of Jaipur. I started gaining weight after I turned 11, and by the time I turned 15, I was on the verge of being a diabetic, courtesy of bad eating habits and a bad lifestyle. I had also contracted a number of skin diseases such as eczema, vitiligo and Acanthosis nigricans. My legs would constantly ache as well, he says.

I remember my doctor telling me that to begin recovering from these ailments, the first thing that I need to do was lose weight, he adds. Consequently, I started jogging daily. However, I was not eating healthy and didnt notice any change in my body. So I stopped jogging after 2 months.

By the time I arrived in college, I had become the quintessential fat-funny guy but after the first year of college, I realised that I am still constantly gaining weight. This shook my confidence. Suddenly, I was the heaviest guy I knew in my life. I realised that now I really and truly need to make some changes."

"I started by going to the gym and on the first day itself I met a trainer who tried to get me to take fat burners and book personal sessions with him. I was very skeptical of him and his approach to weight loss, so I decided to lose weight on my own by joining an introductory aerobics class and learning about nutrition from Youtube and books." Through his own new-found knowledge of the subjects of weight loss and fitness, Harsh followed the below step by step guide to lose weight and trim from 96 kgs to 64 kgs in 8 months, naturally.


Eat clean: I started eating clean. I completely cut-off sugar and refined oil from my daily meals. I also stopped eating processed foods such as biscuits. I replaced these empty calories with whole foods and healthy alternatives. To give you an example: I started consuming whole wheat over maida, jaggery over sugar, olive oil or coconut oil over refined oils and raw vegetables over heavy curries.





Sleep is important: Rest and recovery are as important as eating right and exercising daily.

In line with the first two steps, Harsh charted the below diet plan.

I started following a calorie deficit diet plan, made in accordance with my BMI.

A calorie deficit is a specific diet pattern that revolves around the number of calories you consume in a day. According to Healthline, the concept is based on the idea that as long as you eat fewer calories than you burn, youre bound to lose weight.

This diet pattern requires you to calculate the number of calories your body needs to consume to function smoothly without feeling hungry, and how much deficit you need create without harming your health. The deficit can then be created by cutting down empty calories and unhealthy fats. Keep in mind that the number of calories required to create a deficit is different for different body types. You can calculate yours online via a calorie calculator.

Early Morning: A cup of green tea

Breakfast: 5 egg whites + one whole egg + one small apple

Lunch: 50 gms brown rice + dal or curd OR sprouts + curd + salad

Evening Snacks: 2 oranges or 1 apple + 10 almond or walnuts

Dinner: 40 gms oats +one whole egg OR sprouts + salad

Monday: Upper body workouts + cardio

Tuesday: Aerobic exercises + core (abs)

Wednesday: Aerobic exercise + yoga

Thursday: Aerobic cardio + lower body exercises

Friday: Cardio + bodyweight strength exercises

Saturday: Aerobics + overall body strength training & stretching

Some of the aerobic and body strength exercises that I did were: Jumping Squats , Lunges, Planks, Pushups, Burpees, Sit-ups, Leg raises, Russian Twist, Side planks, Glutes Bridging, Bird-Dog, Spot running, High knees, Plank Push ups, Plank Jacks and Crunches.

I have been able to maintain my current weight by tracking my macros and never skipping my workouts.

Always believe in hard work and please be consistent and dedicated towards your goals. If you missed following your workout or diet routines 1-2 days then dont worry, come back on track again. One cheat meal isn't make you fat and one healthy, clean diet isn't make you fit. So vow to make a lifestyle change. Itll go a long way like it did for me. I am now a Fat Loss Aerobic Instructor.
