As a child I wasn't obese. I was fine till Class VII.

But with studies getting tougher, I spent more time with my books and homework. Gradually, I put on weight.

It wasn't only because of studies, but also due to my bad eating habits. I used to eat more at night and less in the morning.

When I was in Class X, I had already become the fat boy in my school.

The situation got worse when I went to college. I started eating oily food.

At that point in life, I  didn't worry about my weight. Until one day I met my friend who used to be exactly like me -- overweight.

But I was shocked to see him become a slim and handsome boy now.

I decided to become fit too. I began working out and followed a highly professional diet plan.

I was 103 kilos when I started to workout.

I walked 3 km every day. Eventually I walked for 10 km, in which I ran for 5 km.

I also indulged in different modes of workout like spinning, yoga and weight training. I even started a no-carb diet.

My diet included a heavy breakfast upma, poha or oats chilla) with a glass of milk.

In the afternoon, I took two chapatis made of barley with curd, salad and boiled sabji. Fruits with low sugar and high fibre content was for the evening.

I even fasted once every week. Sometimes, I had a fruit on the days I fasted.

Remember, three to four litres of water is a must every day.

Green tea with lemon is also helpful. Avoid oil, sugar, rice, wheat roti and bread.

Finally I achieved my target. I lost 25 kilos in six months. Now I weigh 78 kilos.

My focus now is to lose some more weight, but also gain a bit of muscle mass through weight training. It will make my body get a proper shape.

My message for guys on the heavier side is, 'Nothing is impossible in this world, if you believe in yourself strongly.'
