Cut out the major whites in your diet - white sugar, white salt, milk from the non-Indian cows (milk from indigenous cows is absolutely fine), all-purpose flour and white rice (instead, have indigenous rice, brown or unpolished). Also, eat seasonal foods. It is always 80 per cent diet and 20 per cent workout for a great physique.

Oatmeal is a type of porridge or hot cereal that is often consumed for breakfast. It’s incredibly filling and ranks third on the satisfaction level. These are a good source of soluble fibre called beta-glucan, which helps you feel full. Oatmeal is better at suppressing appetite, increasing
satiety and reducing calorie intake throughout the day.

No food is off limits, but eating too many calories will cause problems over time. Figure the amount of calories your body requires and think of this as your bank balance. Budget your calories throughout the day or week. Do not overspend and your bank balance will remain healthy. Remember, certain foods are more expensive than others so try to avoid them.

A cheat meal is a great way to control the waistline. And if one tends to overindulge, then extra time must be added to weekly workouts. Another great way is to start writing down how you feel after eating certain foods and adding and subtracting that from your daily diet. Club with workouts to see the best results.
