What are the best ways to lose Weight?

We always wanted to look good and feel good. When we go up and become an adult, we get more conscious of how we look. We try different types of dieting methods. Being overweight or obese can lead to a range of health problems. Although many different “FAD Diets” are available, a balanced lifestyle and nutritious diet is the key to healthful living and better weight control.

Whenever you plan to cut calorie count, do have an adequate protein intake, otherwise, you will lose muscles and end up with loose skin.

Diet holds 70% of your target dependence. Rest 30% is your workout. A simple way to create a meal plan is to make sure that each meal consists of 50% fruits and vegetables, 25% whole grains, 25% protein intake. Total fiber intake to be 25-30gm daily.
