Try this effective diet plan to lose weight

Mahvish Khan Nov 07 2015

When you plan to lose weight, you can easily find hundreds, or even thousands of dieting plans along with each and every detail. Sometimes, we manage to shed some kilos from our bodies but reaching our desired weight seems quite impossible.

Why does this happen? Why is losing weight so difficult? Why, even after skipping food or zipping your mouth for days and days, we can’t be the size we want to be?

It’s because we often miss out something very basic, and very important, for our daily regimen. And that is a well-balanced diet plan, customized to your specifics.

Before I share my diet plan with you, I want to clear that dieting or losing weight is not a torture or some practice that we follow for certain days. In order to be in a shape, you need to change your lifestyle – from junk-galloping to healthy one.

You need to be active in your life as well as think before eating anything. Water, that we claim to drink a lot but actually we don’t drink the required amount, intake should be increased and trust me you will see the changes in your skin too.

In order to lose weight, always remember what our Prophet (pbuh) said – that breakfast should be grand, lunch should be proper and dinner should be poor. Instead of taking three big meals, take six small meals.

In snacks, you can bring variety. The rule of healthy life style is never take carbohydrates in dinner. Eat light in dinner and make sure you do some physical workout during the day. Increase the intake of fibers. When I say you can eat fruits, it doesn’t mean you can eat tons and tons of fruits. Portion control is the key to weight loss.

Eat everything but in a controlled portion. Detox water can’t do a miracle but it can help you lose weight. If you can’t religiously follow this plan, whatever you eat it shouldn’t be oily. In a non-stick pan, you can even make everything without oil. Processed food is strictly prohibited – eat fresh and healthy. You can have a glass of milk in the morning. And low fat yogurt can be eaten for snacks as well.
