Added sugar, especially from sugary drinks, is a major reason for weight gain and other health problems. Additionally, foods like candy, soda and baked food items usually contain a lot of sugar and tend to have zero nutritional value.

Time for healthy fats

Make room for healthy fats. While fat is often the first aspect that gets cut out of one’s diet, healthy fat can actually help one stay on track, feel fuller for longer and decrease cravings.

Drink water

Stay well-hydrated. It is the best way to keep all health problems at bay, maintain weight, get a glowing skin and get rid of bloating and water retention.

Don’t give in to fad diets

Fad diets lead to the yo-yo effect where one loses some kilos only to gain them back. So, its okay to have overeaten, but do not fall for such diets to lose that weight quickly.

Burn the calories
