SWEETY: I think I look horrible now.
RAM: You are overweight. Soon many people’ll start calling you ‘a walking football’.
SWEETY: It is not easy to lose weight. I have also taken pills on doctor’s advice. But nothing is working.
RAM: Pills are always harmful. Natural ways are the best.
SWEETY: Inferiority complex is becoming my new curse. I want to hide myself.
RAM: Always remember one thing – nothing is impossible in this world.
SWEETY: You were also overweight a few months ago. You became slim and attractive. Can you tell me the secret?
RAM: The problem with many people is that they want to reduce weight in a few days and start taking crash courses or medicines. It is not the right way. Even if they reduce weight they gain it again.
SWEETY: Now tell me what I should do.
RAM: You have to follow three best tips and you will get slim for life.
SWEETY: I can’t wait. Please tell me fast. I promise I’ll follow.
RAM: The first tip is to maintain patience and discipline. People rarely lose weight in a hurry. The second tip is to do 40 minutes exercise everyday: 25 minutes brisk walking, and 15 minutes cycling. And the third tip is to eat less and add vegetables and fruit in your meal. And remember always eat home-made food.
SEETY: But I love eating out. Can I go for it now and then?
RAM: You may go once or twice a week. But always eat less. Keep some hunger.
SWEETY: How can you say that these are the best tips?
RAM: I, my sister, my mother and some relatives lost weight following these tips. Now you owe me $100 or Rs.5000/-.
SWEETY: How can a friend charge money for advice?
RAM: You know people don’t value free advice or medicine. (Laughs).
