How to Lose the Extra Pounds


You have a big party coming up soon and you can not fit into that awesome Prada dress. You went from size two to plus size all of a sudden. What to do? In this case, the first idea that comes to mind is dieting.

Do not get me wrong dear, dieting is good, but in most cases people tend to starve. That does get the job done but at a terrible cost. If you are planning to go on a diet, you should do it the healthy way.

Choose the right food that will meet your appetite, not add fat to your body and will keep you healthy. In other words, do not starve yourself; just choose your food carefully.

While you are eating, make sure the food contains all the necessary vitamins your body needs. There are different types of vitamins and you will get them from varieties of food. You need to know what food contains which of the vitamins.

Did you know that Vitamin B2 helps to burn fat in your body? You will find this amazing fat burning component in different types of green vegetables, eggs, milk and hard cheese. Now you know why most dieticians advice to go for a good amount of vegetables when it comes to losing weight.

While you are trying to lose weight, your body will require energy. This is where you turn to Vitamin C. This helps the glucose in the body convert to energy. All kinds of citrus fruits are rich in Vitamin C. Other than that, you can find this in Broccoli, Kiwi, Green Pepper, Black Currant etc.

Now that you know how important vegetables are, you have to make some changes in your daily eating habits. Choose your snacks wisely. Instead of going for a big cheese burger, go for some salad with a bit of chicken in it. Try to avoid sodas and drink fresh juice.

Decrease the amount of carb you take every day. But remember, going on a diet does not mean you have to become a vegetarian. Eat some meat, but in less quantity.

And last but not the least, diet will only take you up to a certain level. You will also have to work out in order to not just lose weight, but tone the muscles. Go for both and see how that changes your body.
