With extensive use of diet pills and weight loss stuff including ephedrine, I have found that none of it is really good for "weight loss" in regards to just stripping weight. Having a good control on diet and getting good exercise is best. The pills and stuff only help give you energy on the deficit.

Word of advice, definitely should "cycle" them or else you will burn out your nervous system like I have. Just a forewarning.

You need protein. There is no reason to stop taking whey if it helps you reach your protein intake goals.

HI Bro Thanks for the advice...but please kindly guide me for protien intake.

I am taking ON Platinum Whey Protien i.e. on scoop of Whey Protien (approx 30 gm) after my workout..

Is this one scoop of Whey Protien is enough for the whole day after workout or should I increase the amount...

And also should I increase Whey protien scoops because I am Vegetarian..

Let's see if I can clear some things up.

Chapatis are an East Indian version of tortillas/flatbread. They can be eaten anytime...usually with a curry of some sort.

Sarvpriy - Do you eat any eggs, cheese &/or yogurt, fish, or seafood, or do you only eat vegetables?

- Daal (split peas), beans, and various nuts are also good sources of protein which you can incorporate into your diet (google vegetarian sources of protein for more options).

- I would not use the "fat burner" either. With the knowledge resource on this forum we can get you a diet/meal plan.

How long have you been eating the way you listed? It looks to me as though you have been grossly undereating for someone your size.

6 - 7 = Gym
7- 7:30 = Protien (Hydro Whey) ~120-150 calAfter taking bath and after atlest one hour to protien shake a Breakfast of Oatmeal or Cornflakes with skimmed milk. ~200-300 cal9 - 9:30 = office.
10:30 = Green Tea
11:30 = Green Tea
12:30 = Hydroxycut Elite Cap (One)
1:00 = Lunch (two Chapattis, One Vegitable, Curd and before lunch I ensure that i drink atleast Five glasses of Water. ~300-400 cal1:30 = Green Tea
2 - 5 = atleast four to Six Glasses of Water.
5:30 = Green Tea
6:30 = Back to Residence
7:00 = Some oatmeals ~200 cal8:30 = Dinner (Two Chapattis, One Vegitable) ~200-300 cal9:30 = A Small Walk

I've approx your calories above (I'm totally guessing since we don't know how you cooked the food and your portion sizes), but even on the high side I put you at around 1300-1500 cal @ ~250lbs body weight. which is TOO LOW as far as I'm concerned

You NEED to have a good source of protein with EACH meal. The % of carb/protein/fat can be altered to your needs, but total protein and calorie intake are vital to losing fat and keeping/gaining lean muscle mass.

If you don't eat any animal or animal products, it will be much more challenging to get enough complete protein sources. If you can supplement with whey/casein you are ok. By the way, cottage cheese (especially the dry curd) is a very good source of protein as well.

I think a bigger challenge is balancing your carb to fat ratios. I'm assuming you're East Indian (sorry if my assumption is wrong). The traditional Indian diet can be quite high in carbs. If your diet is high in carbs, you will need to bring your protein and fat ratios down. If you add nuts/seeds as protein sources, they are high in fat. So then you will have to bring down your ratio of carbs.

Bro actually I am on this diet for last one month. But this is diet which I am following creates little starving.
I am from North India....but i dont take any animal products i.e I am veg but usually eat white eggs occassionally.
Most of the time I am on tours and on those days I try to be on the diet above but food in hotel you know...but still i try to select only those menus where i will be served less oil or less sugar.
There is no change in my weight from last one month..
