We've all struggled to lose weight at some point in our lives. No matter how many diets or fitness routines we've tried to follow, getting rid of that extra fat can be quite challenging. And during such times, we often consult nutritionists or health experts for solutions to our concerns. Recently, we came across a tweet shared by a former chef who has revealed some weight loss secrets for people who struggle to do so. Internet users have found his tips helpful and thanked him for giving them a reality check.
Former chef and restaurant owner Madhu Menon took to the micro-blogging platform to write, "If you're trying to lose weight, the most important thing you should do is stop ordering food from outside. As a former chef and restaurant owner, and also someone trying to lose weight, let me tell you why." He further explains that our weight loss mainly depends on our diet. "Diet is the key to 90% of weight loss. As the saying goes, 'You can't out-train a bad diet.' Mr Menon further suggests, "No matter what meal plan you're following, the ultimate mechanism for weight loss is calorie restriction, whether that is counting calories, intermittent fasting, or whatever."

Since being posted, the tweet has received over 454.1K views and 780 retweets so far. Many people agreed with the former chef's advice and thanked him for giving them a reality check. One person wrote, "It makes so much sense. When I was in the village with no other option but our own kitchen and outdoor work, I was in a different state. Now domesticated and in a cosmopolitan region with food from restaurants being nearly a weekly occurrence, bloating has happened."
Another person wrote, "This is superb! As an obesity physician, I find this tweet priceless!" A third person commented, "Sir, why did you have to say this? I have been eating restaurant food pretty much every single day for the past 6-7 years."

Very true . Outside food a strict no no while on a diet plan— Amitabh Verma (@amitabh26) April 26, 2023
Also there is enough data to show that people who often eat outside are always broke ( living pay check to pay check )
🙈 I too was guilty 🤣— Omkar Jadhav (@omkarjadhav) April 27, 2023
Had seen in a leading 'South Indian' restaurant how rava dosa was being made - with loads and loads of oil. And street parathas are literally fried in oil, not lightly roasted in a sprinkling of oil. Ditto for 'tomato omelette', again an actual observation at a restaurant.— CAJayantThakur (@JayantThakur) April 26, 2023
I stopped taking pro subscriptions of food delivery apps for the very same reason so that the high prices would dissuade me from ordering outside food everyday— Yash Chaturvedi (@yashchaturvedi) April 26, 2023
I guess, this is the Universe's sign to tell me that its high time to uninstall food ordering apps, as I am trying to lose weight but also did order mughlai paratha and mango lassi yesterday 🥲— Moumita Samaddar (@moumita_24) April 27, 2023
