    Health is wealth. Understand it, appreciate it and live by it. Remember, if you lose your health you lose the most precious thing god gave you.

    Whenever you eat food of any kind, always chew it properly, ie eat slowly. Not only will this aid in proper digestion, but will help curb your appetite -- you'll tend to eat less.

    Drink two glasses of lukewarm water every morning, as soon as you wake up. This will help remove impurities from the body. Also try to drink at least three litres of water a day.

    A person trying to lose weight must completely eliminate processed, sugary products (cakes, pastries, ice creams etc) from his/ her diet. There is nothing more harmful for an overweight person than processed sugar. The intake of deep-fried food such as French fries, samosas, pakoras etc should also be restricted. Once you've reached your target weight, having these items once in a while is okay.

    Eating four or five small meals throughout the day is much better than having three large meals. The science behind this is that having small nutritious meals helps maintain the body's metabolism and aids the digestion process. The higher the body's metabolism, the more it will burn fat. The human digestive system is designed to eat small meals frequently.

    Every meal a person has should consist of carbohydrates (55 percent), proteins (35 percent) and fats (15 percent).

    You diet should include complex carbohydrates such as oatmeal (daliya), seasoned vegetables, skim milk, brown breads, and low glycemic index fruits (apple, papaya, orange, grapefruit, etc). Simple carbohydrates, which consist mainly of sugar (cakes, pastries etc), should be restricted.

    A healthy protein diet should consist of egg whites, home-made paneer (cottage cheese), kidney beans, legumes, low fat chicken and fish, while fats should be derived from sources like almonds, walnuts and olive oil


    Try to have oatmeal with skim milk

    Low fat milk does not make good Paneer. You have to use regular milk for thick paneer.
