Veeramachaneni Ramakrishna Complete Diet Plan

Veeramachaneni Ramakrishna Complete Diet Plan (VRK Diet) When you are following this program remember don’t judge it by how you are feeling the first 3 days or so. Give it a good 7 days at least. After that don’t be afraid to fast by having special soups. Follow the program until you reach your personal goal and then follow the recovery & maintenance.

Everyone body is different.  For this program to start working your body needs to switch to using fat as its primary source of energy. Depending on when it happens you will start liking the feeling of having constant high energy levels, of course love weighing yourself and admiring yourself in the mirror.

Don’t get fooled by just the aesthetic benefits you are going to get amazing overall health benefits like reversal of type-2 diabetes, fatty liver or other metabolic diseases, lower blood sugar levels, lower cholesterol, hormonal balance, relief from gas/bloating/acid reflex and many more.

You must follow the below rules during this diet program

Rule 1: Eat only when you are hungry do not eat for taste.

Rule 2: Eat only until your hunger is satisfied. Save and eat later

Rule 3: Do not eat again until you are hungry.

Rule 4: Do not follow set timetable to eat like breakfast/lunch/dinner/snack etc. Eat whenever you are hungry. Some people have gone not eating for as long as 44 days drinking only the special soups.

4 Pillars of Veeramachaneni Ramakrishna Complete Diet Plan

  1. Consume 70 g – 100g of Direct Fat (coconut oil). Not ml /cup/ spoonful. See substitutes if you don’t like coconut oil. Measure and drink it or mix it in soups and drink it. This is in addition from the fat you use for cooking.
  2. Consume 4 Liters or more of Water
  3. Consume Juice of 3 Lemons
  4. Take one Multi Vitamin Tablet

Important note : You must consume all four Pillars items every single day during this diet program
Along with these four you can eat any combination foods from the allowed list in any form ( cooked, steamed, stir-fried, grilled, deep-fried or raw)

Coconut Oil and Substitutes

Try to drink coconut oil as much as you can. If you get a gagging sensation try to take 20g at a time but give it a try before considering other options. Do not drink large quantities at one go. You might have diarrhea due to increased bile production. 

Convince yourself that Coconut Oil is a medicine. Not all medicines are sugar coated like cough syrups. If you still cannot then here are a few alternative fats for your daily must.

We need to eat out occasionally. Let us accept it. The general idea here is to avoid eating anything that has ingredients from the not allowed list. Make sure there is no food colour, MSG and cashew paste etc.Preferably if you can avoid onion/tomato puree as well then it is good. Even better would to ask if the chef can make the dish with butter.

Vegetarian(Made with Butter)

Paneer Tikka

Palak Paneer

Paneer Kabab

Bhendi Fry etc.

Non Vegetarian(made with Butter)


Tandoori Chicken

Chicken Kabab


Travel is something we cannot control. Especially if you are in a travel job. Try to avoid travelling during the first 3 days of starting the program for many reasons which I will cover later.

Here is a list to keep handy.

Multi Vitamins

Coconut Oil or your choice of fat

Lots seeds, nuts from the allowed list

Cucumber (Keera) with Lime Squeezed

Plain Lime Soda.

Coffee powder

Try eating outside food as described above.

NOTE: I happened to listen to this amazing lecture about training body to use fat as primary fuel for energy by Sri Veeramachaneni Ramakrishna. I am currently following this program. This blog is my interpretation of his speeches in Telugu. This is no way endorsed/affiliated/connected/recommended by  Sri Veeramachaneni Ramakrishna. All the information I found about this program has only been in Telugu so far and in the form of YouTube videos. I thought as my contribution to bear the torch I created this information in English. If you can please attend his seminar or watch his videos for authentic first hand information.
