Losing weight the fun way!

 

 

There are so many magazines, blogs, websites that will give you thousand suggestions on how to lose weight. It seems like a herculean task to lose even one pound and all that the weighing machine does is leave us feeling even more discouraged. Maybe then we feel like taking up a diet plan and run through every magazine and website to find the perfect diet plan to lose weight fast and quick. After some days we might feel fatigue and our body tells us that it cannot take this anymore!

Trust me! I have been through the same phase except the part about the dieting plan because I am a big time foodie. There is no force in the world that can stop me eating from what I want and I am very sure there will be many people out there who love food but want to reduce weight. Don’t lose hope guys! There can be many other alternatives, stop blaming the food. I followed a particular diet and exercise pattern that has helped me reduce almost 17 kgs over a period of 6 months. I know it’s a long time because people want quick results. But hey! Nothing like losing weight naturally and in a healthy way right?
