How to lose weight..

You require going from FAT to FIT,” said the doctor. One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” said Virginia Woolf. Two contradictory statements. How to lose weight?? Just have a look at what i tried. 
The Essentials:-
  • Avoid caffeine, refined sugar, alcohol and processed food. They increase fat. Avoid CRAP
Instead of caffeine, one can go for green tea or spiced green tea. You can also try Good Green Tea Smoothie. This green smoothie is packed with grapes, spinach, green tea and avocado. Replacing sugar with honey enhances taste and reduces the fat contained in sugar.
  • Intake of Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish, increase metabolism and therefore helps in losing weight. Omega-3 fatty acids has beneficial effects in rheumatoid arthritis and asthmatics. It also lowers blood pressure.
Variant recipes rich in Omega-3 fatty acids:-

1. Grilled Salmon & Zucchini with Red Pepper Sauce - Jazz up simple grilled salmon and summer vegetables with a zesty sauce. It's nutritious and toothsome.

2. Roasted Red Pepper and Walnut Spread - Grind red pepper, toast cubes, walnuts, oil, pomegranate juice or molasses, cumin, and red-pepper flakes in a food processor until the mixture is a rough paste. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Enjoy with multi grain flour tortillas.

How to lose weight with five food swaps!!

Croissants: A croissant is a buttery flaky viennoiserie pastry with crescent shape. Croissants are full of fat, sugar and do not contain pure milk. Sacrificing your sweet tooth for a while to cut down fat is genuine. You can have multigrain cookies instead.

Whole wheat bread: Whole wheat bread sandwiches with low fat cheese and lot of greens make a superb breakfast and is very filling. Whole wheat bread is low in saturated fat, and very low in cholesterol.

Spelt biscuits: Spelt is wonderfully nutritious and ancient grain with a deep nut like flavor. Spelt biscuits for both health nuts and non healthy eaters. The nutty whole grain flavor is simply divine. It’s the best tea time snack.

Unsweetened organic almond milk: With no added syrups or sweeteners, this delicate nutty drink comes from premium quality almonds alone. One can't think of a more delicious way to boost your nutrition. So quench your thirst with calcium and vitamin enriched unsweetened organic almond milk. Enjoy hot or cold. How to lose weight is not a matter to worry anymore.
