These crash diets benefit you in the short run but it badly affects your overall health system in the long run.
The first and foremost thing you should do in your weight loss schedule is to change your eating habits. Start eating smaller portions of food or if you want to eat a full plate, eat only 2/3 of a plate instead. Eat your main large meal at midday with the other meals much smaller in content. Don’t eat heavy meals late in the evening or the body won’t have time to digest it so it ends up stored as fat in your body. Always eat balanced diet comprising of proteins, carbohydrates and vitamins. If you love sugar in Tea or Coffee, substitute aspartame for sugar and make it a point to drink skimmed milk instead of full cream milk. Drink lots of water during the day and before doing and after exercise, you should drink at least 8 big glass of water per 24 hours. Eat more fibres i.e. pulses, grams, nuts, brown rice, cereals and fresh fruits. Eat more vegetable as part of your diet.
Even if you are taking a balanced diet; there is still need to do exercises. It is necessary to warm up your body before exercising and at the end of exercise, you need to cool down. Start by aerobic exercises or by stretching exercises if you are in gym. Aerobics reduces fat and gives you a lean body. Work-out in gyms reduces your weight and also gives you stronger muscles. Do exercise at least thrice a week.
