Rohit Sharma, everybody knows that we spend a lot of money specially on a pre-contest diet because lots of meat, fish, veggies, beans, cottage cheese, whey protein, glutamine etc. are needed to stabilize your condition. If its very hard for you to get those, just eat what's available and do it in small meals 8-10x per day. Just avoid sugar, salt and oily foods and do a lot more cardio for at least 1 to 1-1/2 hour with intervals of high and low intensities followed by a paced cardio for 20 minutes and that's it. You're on your way closer to a fit body but not much of that of a bodybuilder. Hope this helps.
