This is a myth. Nimbu paani does not help to reduce weight in any way (other than the calories burnt in the act of preparing nimbu paani).

It's so popular because most of the obese people are lazy to do physical activity and these kinds of shortcuts are exactly what they want to hear.

1. Quit Sugar and Soda.
2. Eat 6 small meals a day instead of 3 large meals.
3. Carbs are good for you. But only the ones which have low glycemic index. E.g. Refined Sugar, Refined Flour, White rice are bad for health.
4. You have to completely stop trans fat and avoid saturated fat. Unsaturated fat in small quantities are good for you. I believe it promotes good cholesterol (HDL) if I'm not wrong.
5. You don't have to count those calories if you eat the right things. E.g. A spoonful of sugar is just 15-20cal. But its extremely harmful. Similarly an apple is around 75-100 cal. But its very good for you.

Eat only when truly hungry, when one feels juices running in the tummy, never eat on time. Eat only when stomach wants. For optimal digestion.

Urban India is out of sync to the entire planet when it comes to meal times...
Having stayed around the globe & heck -even when I visit my village in Uttaranchal - what strikes me is how world over people have dinner by 6.30 to 7.30 pm.

Only in urban India we eat dinner 8-10 pm !
Move that ahead by 1-2 hrs & come in sync with the globe

While it is truly informative to know what to eat and not to eat by their technical terms (carbs, saturated / Unsaturated fat, glycemic index,etc), for the uninitiated, it will be even more useful if these are translated into actual eatables that we can buy from bazaar.
Thanks for all the inputs.

I know there are quite some technical details involved here. But what I can say is that for the un-initiated, there is a simple truth, where one can guage whether eating something is heavy or not; very easily. Though not always possible, but yes more than 70% of times the issues can resolved by that split decision.

- Ask yourselves how many times in a month you eat in a hotel?
- Ask yourselves, how many times you take up the phone and call for a Pizza?

That should answer most of the question for oneself!

Rest of the episode is then how regular one is in his/her habits.
