The Rujuta Diwekar Diet Plan

If you're an Indian, you most certainly would have heard of Rujuta Diwekar - the famous celebrity nutritionist. She has written two great books - Don't Lose Your Mind Lose Your Weight; AND Women & the Weight Loss Tamasha. What makes her and her books so popular is that she promotes healthy & wholesome eating. What she preaches not just makes sense, but works too. It may not be an overnight change. But her diets change the body for the better and equips it to fight diseases and indulge once in a while too!

According to her Mantra, at least for Indians, its good to start the day with a good carb rich hot breakfast as opposed to cereal. She advises us to eat every 2 hours. Her mid meal snack options include roasted peanuts, nuts, sprouts, salads, Coconut Water, sandwiches, cereal bars, etc. Although eating every 2 hours seems impossible, it just takes 1 week on consistent effort to remember to eat regularly for the habit to set.

Here's an overview of what I'll be doing these 45 days -


5 am
Wake Up; Brush;  ||  ANY FAVORITE FRUIT
5.30 am
1 hour Workout
7 am
Protein Powder + 1 glass Milk // Fresh Fruit Juice
8.15 am
Breakfast (usually a Rice based dish) + VITAMIN Supplement
11 am
LUNCH (Roti / Chapati with Stir Fry Veggies)
1pm
Salads (Fruit or veggie or bean)
3 pm
Lassi / Raita (Yogurt
5 pm
Peanuts / Almonds / Walnuts / Dates / Coconut Water
5.30 pm
1 hour Workout
7 pm
Dinner (soup & salads)
9 pm
1 glass Milk + Turmeric
11 pm
Calcium Tablet before sleep
As you can see, I am taking a couple of supplements. If you are following my diet plan, please consult your doctor before taking supplements. Also, in every meal, portion control is important. Do not stuff till your oesophagus is full. Just eat enough to fill your stomach (that is around 2 palmful of food).

Protein Powder is a supplement that gives best value for the food you consume. Its a really good source for protein, especially for Vegetarians. I mix around 2 tablespoons of Protein powder in warm milk & drink it after my morning workout.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS ONLY FOR REFERENCE PURPOSES. I AM NOT A DIETITIAN AND I AM CERTAINLY NOT PREACHING THAT YOU DO IT THIS WAY.
THIS JUST WORKS FOR ME.

---- 2014 UPDATE ----
