“Only if the diet is sustainable, only then the results you get by following such a diet will be sustainable, right? If you are going to follow any diet, where the diet plan itself is unsustainable whatever results you get 2kilos, 5 kilos, 10 kilos or 20 kilos, the weight loss is also not going to be sustainable because you are definitely going to go back to your old eating habit and all the weight that you have lost is going to come running back again!”
