​Weight Loss – Isn’t this a very familiar word nowadays? You can lose weight easily through various programs however maintaining that weight is a great challenge. It would involve intense exercises, diet plans, running, cardio and maybe some supplements. After going through these rigorous programs you finally reach that ideal weight that you’ve been dreaming for so long. But, once you’ve got there, how will you sustain it? Because, let’s face it, we cannot take apple cider vinegar every day. And we cannot have only veggies, and soups for dinner for the rest of our lives! We just cannot! We need some quick and easy weight loss recipes to help us through this difficult phase!

However, we cannot deny that food plays an important role in maintaining that weight. Here I bring some tips from your kitchen, which would be very helpful to you, whether you are trying to lose weight, or have already lost, and are trying to maintain it:

  1. Eat colourful fruits and vegetables. They are loaded with antioxidants and loads of disease fighting properties.
  2. Modify the recipes by replacing the high-calorie ingredients with low-calorie ones!
  3. Abstaining from oils, dairy products etc. will lead to various deficiencies and diseases in the long run. Opt for olive oil as much as possible as it is good in omega 3 fatty acids and choose paneer over cheese always.
  4.  Try and get some protein, Fat, carbs in all your meals.
