Know your genes and choose your diet and exercise

Say no to diets which promises speedy weight loss


Resort to fad diets which definitely work, but for a short period of time. They help you lose weight from your muscles and bones leaving you weak and ill. And once you go back to your normal routine, you gain all the weight or even more in no time.

Tasty recipes for weight loss

When it comes to weight, the type of food you eat can be more important than what you eat. It is good to include tasty saladable recipes which can go on a long run

Ward off dehydration

Proper hydration has long been regarded as an essential key to weight loss. Dieting can be particularly challenging, especially if your body feels deprived. Water can suppress appetite naturally and increases the body’s ability to metabolize stored fat.

Divide and conquer


When we eat a big meal, the sugar level in our blood rises, but once that meal is digested blood sugar level falls, taking your energy and mood with it. The regular influx of food with a little-and-often approach keeps your energy level stable.

Understand your sleep pattern


Just as exercise and nutrition are essential for optimal health and happiness, so is sleep. The quality of your sleep directly affects the quality of your waking life, including your mental sharpness, productivity, emotional balance, creativity, physical vitality, and even your weight. No other activity delivers so many benefits with so little effort.
