Today, we will talk about weight loss. Yes the, most talked about topic amongst all of us. Right;)? Don’t we all want to fit into our high school jeans, and that too fast? What if I tell you, that this can indeed be done. But, it will take time. And, if you are patient, regular and do not cheat I promise you by the year-end you might be able to fit in those jeans 🙂
Well, to lose weight you need to be vigilant of the number of calories you are eating. Personally, I do not believe in keto, Atkins, low carb blah-blah. For me, it is indeed about eating what you can eat forever.
The diet you do, should be sustainable and not something that can be done only for a week or a month.
If I eat less or skip carbs I get very bitchy and someone who is always hungry.
As I did not want to leave any of my favourite foods, I used the MFP app to log my food and workouts.
P.S- this does not mean I ate fries and pizza. It only means I did not eat stir fry veggies, steamed broccoli. (You know all the fad diet stuff)

Do not skip meals, remember to think about ten years from now. You do not want to be weak and lack immunity. Eat better, not less.
