In a country where we are still struggling with feeding underprivileged and malnourished kids, obesity seems to be a first world problem. But its not. Every 1 out of 5 persons in India is suffering from obesity thanks to all the junk food, soda and 100% natural fruit juice(which contains a lot of sugar) we gobble on, the hours we spend zapping the TV channels or staring the computer screens. So what should we do? Exercise! Yes, thats what we should do to lose and maintain weight, but well we dont have time to go to gym. So what else can we do? I was talking to my dietician once, after an intense work out at the gym, when she told me that weight loss is 70% about what you eat and 30% about the work out. Weird right? So I know that you are super busy, and cant take out time to exercise, but you cook and you eat right? Just make a few changes in what you eat and you see the difference in no time. Another thing she told me was to drink a lot of fluids, because when you exercise a lot or go on a diet, your body dehydrates very quickly, which is fatal. So drinking a lot of fluids will help you stay hydrated and your body will flush out all the toxins. Besides water, there are few liquids that would not only keep you hydrated but also boost your metabolism. I know you are doing a jig, so to know more, you can continue reading once you are done!
