The A-K tips are put up in an alphabetical order so that it is easy for you to remember.    Always sit down to eat: Don%u2019t eat on the move or while cooking / watching TV / reading. Always sit down at one place to eat and don%u2019t get up till you finish eating. Chew the food properly: Eating slowly and chewing properly is an efficient method of cutting down on consumption of food. It also helps in easy and proper digestion of food.   Eat all meals: Don%u2019t skip any meals. Skipping meals can lead to hunger pangs which can further lead to overeating.  Go for smaller treats: Instead of buying family packs, buy smaller packs. You will probably polish off a big packet because it is open.  Ideal weight is the key to a healthy life: Invest in a weighing scale and keep a regular check on your weight. Try to maintain an ideal weigh throughout your life.  Keep your mind positive: you are more likely to lose weight if you keep imagining how great you will look when you will be slim. This is one of the keys to achieving and maintaining a state of fitness and well being.

Is your new year%u2019s resolution weight loss too?   Are you following an old method to lose weight by eating less calories and exercising more? In the past, in order to lose weight fast, people would follow a low calorie diet.  There are many medical practitioners and dieticians that are still following the low calorie method. Due to this concept, many people started downloading the calorie app to keep track of their calorie intake in order to lose weight.   The truth   Studies have documented that 95% of the people who ate fewer calories did not lose weight. To lose weight you have to eat right. Eating less or low calorie which is not nutritive or wholesome will make you gain weight for e.g. A diet coke has zero calories as compared to an apple which has 80 calories, now if you go by calories, diet coke would be a great option in comparison to apple. But in reality, the apple will not only provide you good nutrients but will also lead to weight loss due to negative calories (as the apple requires more food energy to be digested than it provides)   How do I lose weight right way? Is this what you are thinking?   The solution   Do not follow low calorie, crash diets, fad diet and rigorous exercises. In order to lose weight, firstly focus on the nutrients required by your body.   The mantra is to focus on the right proportion of Carbohydrates, Protein, Fats, Minerals and Vitamins. a)      Complex digestible carbohydrates such as grain products (preferably whole grains) such as bread, rice, cereal as well as fruits, vegetables and low fat dairy foods. b)      Fats: Mainly essential fatty acids (omega 3 and omega 6) E.g. Nuts (almonds, walnuts), seeds (chia, hemp, flaxseeds), sardine, salmon, soyabean etc. Good fats such as coconut oil, desi ghee, avocado and egg yolks. c)      Protein: Complete and High biological value such as Fish, poultry, whole egg.   ?         Secondly, hormones play an important role with regards to our weight. Some foods release fat burning hormones and some foods release fat storing hormones. One of the most important foods that play a role in regulating hormones is fat. Many of us think that by eliminating fat or eating boiled food we are one step closer to our weight loss target. But the truth is one has to eat fat to burn fat. You need to incorporate the right type of fat in order to move the stubborn fat. Fat is good for you and for your metabolism.  Good fat in nuts and seeds [restricted amounts] will not make you fat and cause weight gain.   ?         And lastly, one can only lose weight if their body is in happy state. You all must be wondering what does that mean. It%u2019s very simple "happy state of body" is when there are no deficiencies or diseases. One can lose weight and fat percentage only if these two factors are absent. Before working on your weight loss resolution, make sure to check your parameters regularly like Vitamin D3, Vitamin B12, Calcium, Haemoglobin, Blood Pressure, Diabetes etc. These parameters decide if your body is in a healthy and happy state. In order to respond to the attempt of right weight and fat loss, your body therefore needs to be disease and deficiencies free.     So before working on your new year%u2019s resolution, make sure to focus on these 3 important things for a drop in waist size.
