Should I eat this?
Should I not?
Is this healthy? How many calories does this consist of? How will I benefit by eating this? I don’t like the taste. The Year is just going by, everything was perfect and the only thing that has been bugging you is your weight. What is even irritating is just when you have just finished making your diet chart; a party invitation just pops up. Or an invitation for lunch spoils your plans for eating.
Lose weight this year by eating right
Experts say that woman on an average need 2000 calories per day to maintain and man needs about 2500 calories. Logically you lose weight by burning those calories off either by dieting or exercising or a combination of both.
Intake of Proteins
Health experts emphasize intake of protein in your diet as this helps in losing weight. Protein increases your metabolic rate and also curbs your appetite. Studies showed that people, who ate about 30% of calories as protein, ate 441 fewer calories per day. A permanent increase of protein in your diet will also fight cravings and you will find significant change in your weight loss as well.
There are no shortcuts for losing weight. Start with a 30-minute walk later increasing it to 45 minutes to about an hour as per to your comfort. If you feel like going for a jog or wish to do yoga, try doing it for about three times in a week before increasing it. .
Cut down on Sugar
Try to eliminate sugar since these may trigger more calories in your body leading to obesity or weight gain. Avoid sodas, fruit juices, chocolate milk or other beverages with added sugar. And sugar may increase your hunger pangs leaving you to binge. Studies showed a 60% increased risk of obesity for each daily serving of sugar-sweetened beverage.
Less of Carbs
Cutting of carbohydrate reduces appetite and is also an effective way to lose weight.

Low carb diet also has other health benefits for people with type 2 diabetes or metabolic syndrome.
