Has everyone been telling you that you have to forego everything you love in order to lose weight? Forget it! You can subsist on a soup-salad diet for a month, or a couple of months if you are too focussed, but hey, you can't live on it for life. If you are prone to gaining weight, will you avoid puris, jalebis, gulab jamuns, ice cream, tikkis and parathas for the rest of your life? Even if you love soups and salads, you cannot completely steer clear of the other stuff you love. If you try, you will end up cheating and binging sooner than you think!
