While everyone starts off on a positive and serious note, only a few manage to stick to it till the end, unfortunately. Those celebrity endorsed diet regimes always paint a picture of it being the best thing, making you believe every word of it.

“So Megan Fox followed a Paleo diet, may be that’ll help me shed a few pounds. Or should I go for the 5:2 diet that Jennifer Aniston and Beyonce took up? ” such is the quintessential state of flux in an average dieter’s mind.

And finally, those nonsensically bizarre diet regimes that restrict one’s intake only to a few food items, barring every other consumable item on the face of this planet. In such a scenario it remains of utmost importance to accept and understand the fact, that crash diets may work instantly but in the longer run are capable of making our bodies devoid of some of the most essential nutrients. Experts across the globe suggest teaming regular exercise with a well-balanced diet characterised by portion control and cutting down on junk food, processed food items, alcohol, smoking and caffeine.

Key to Success: A Balanced Diet | Do’s and Don’ts 

Experts suggest that a wholesome diet should comprise a daily dose of anti-oxidants, protein, iron, fibre, calcium, Vitamin D and many other essential nutrients. This would require you to consume dry fruits, green leafy vegetables, fish, lentils, fruits, nuts, dairy and poultry items – all divided in small meals, scattered throughout the day. Vegetarians can substitute non-vegetarian sources of nutrients with foods like soy, mushrooms, tofu, cottage cheese and so on. Apart from these, following points should also be kept in mind.

For those who think that following some kind of a special diet regime or a weight-loss programme is imperative, make sure that you do it right and stick to it till the very end. According to a Delhi-based weight management expert, Dr. Gargi Sharma, “Before taking on a weight-loss program, there are certain things you should know. The first is your Body Mass Index or BMI.” This is followed by an assessment of the kind of body type you have and the ‘perfect’ diet programme or exercise regime to suit you the best.

In addition to this, keep the following in mind:

– Do it under supervision

– Get a tailor-made programme (a combination of customised diet and exercise plan) to suit your requirements and your body type.

– Make your regime an exciting, satisfying and flexible one, not the one based on abstinence which will make it tedious and hard to follow.

And, for those who think that being on a diet is all about giving up on all the deliciousness in life, think again. We have put together some of the easiest, simplest and yummiest of preparations that will make healthy eating loads of fun.
