Set eating habits for life


Start eating healthy and say no to junk. In our busy lives, we hardly keep track of what we eat and how much we eat. It's essential to maintain a proper diet which includes fresh veggies, fruits, nuts and other sugar-free food materials. It might be tough to keep a track for the first month, but the results will amaze you. Include food which contains a lot of fibres in your diet because they help in increasing metabolism. Have three meals a day but make sure that your breakfast is hefty and your dinner is the lightest of all the meals.

Get good sleep

Keep track of how much hours do you sleep. Our body needs to rest after such hectic days. Sleep at least for 7 hours, switch off all the electronics half an hour before you go to sleep. If you are unable to sleep, then use an eye mask and keep your eyes closed. Getting a good sleep plays a vital role in the proper functioning of the body and hence helps to lose weight.
