We live in a world where looking good is more important than being good. In the race to look slimmer and sexier, people (hate to say this, but mostly women) all around the world nearly starve themselves. Eating less or surviving on just salads and soups is not the answer to losing fat. Mostly it never helps. Too strict a dieting routine could make your skin glowless and your body lethargic.

A few tried and tested methods are

  1. Eating at regular intervals: eating moderate but regular quantities of healthy food is actually good for your body.
  2. Never skip breakfast: breakfast is the most important meal of the day and one should never skip it. People who do actually end up eating more in lunch. The digestive ability of the stomach is strongest in the morning so any kind of food is digested easily. Heavy lunch on the other hand will make you sleepy.
  3. Stop consuming those chips and cold drinks right now: Just because your favorite actor/actress is promoting that brand of chips or soft drinks; you don’t start eating those. If you really want to look like them then stop consuming the promoted items completely. Okay once in a month you can binge upon them but not more. The calories in the aerated beverages and chips can just help in adding tires to your waist that’s it! Try healthy snacking. Salads and juices will help here.
  4. Exercise: get up in the morning and start burning the calories. Aerobics, yoga, cycling, jogging, anything would solve the purpose. And if you are too lazy to do it yourself, go hit a gym with a tough instructor. Use the stairs instead of elevator.
  5. Drink Water: some studies say that drinking just the right amount of water helps you shed kilograms. Water not only cleans your system but also prevents you from eating too much.

The key to lose weight is healthy eating and regular exercise. It might take a bit long in actually seeing the results, but the best things in the world are worth the wait.
