Many wish to lose weight in the shortest time possible by trying various diets and exercises. But it is extremely essential to understand that weight loss is a journey that takes time and equal efforts.

Nutritionist Nancy Dehra recently took to Instagram to answer the few most frequently asked questions about weight loss.

Tried everything but can’t seem to lose weight

“You are hopping from one solution to other. Stick to the basics and give it time,” she remarked.
