Because losing weight requires decreased caloric intake, many people think that diet and starvation go hand in hand. But this is far from the truth. To stay healthy your body needs good quality food with nutrients in them. Therefore, a balanced diet must contain carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals and fibre.
Remember that crash diet is never a good solution to lose weight. Not only it’s bad for your health, but you’re almost guaranteed to gain back all the weight you lost once you go off the diet. “You should look at weight loss as a long term plan. Try to lose weight slowly, at a rate of two to three pounds per week. Increase your activity level and eat healthy meals and snacks.”
