But, by the time we actually feel thirst, our body is already quite dehydrated. Therefore, you should have water at regular intervals irregular of whether you feel thirsty or not. Furthermore, sometimes thirst is misinterpreted as hunger by our brain. Drink adequate amount of water, a glass when you feel hungry. Water also helps in proper and easy excretion of toxic wastes from the body.

2) Fruits and Vegetables – You have perhaps heard this before. But what you should know is that there are certain fruits and vegetables that help in weight loss more than others. For example, banana and mango might not be the ideal weight loss fruits. But papaya, water melon, and other water packed fruits not only make you feel full but also help in weight loss. Tomato, gourd and cucumber are some vegetables that help in weight loss apart from green leafy vegetables. Don’t follow a boring plan. Make fruit and vegetable salads and dress them with oregano, black salt and such condiments to make them delicious.

3) Yoghurt – The benefits of yoghurt have been long known in most cultures. It helps burn fat fast and effectively. You can have a bowl of yoghurt with each meal. You could even mix your fruits and vegetables with yoghurt and black salt for an excellent taste. However, do not buy yoghurt that has been flavored with sugar and other sweeteners. This will do more harm than good. Apart from stimulating fat burning processes in the body, yoghurt also helps smoothen the various digestive processes thereby eliminating waste and toxic materials effectively. This will give you a fresher, more vigorous feel throughout the day.

4) Pulses and sprouts – Green gram, black gram and other pulses are packed with vitamins, minerals and proteins. They help you feel full and you can have a large quantity without worrying about the side effects. Since they don’t have fats or carbohydrates, they can help you create a deficit. That is, when you have pulses and are exercising too, the fat that is burned by exercise does not get replaced by consuming pulses. This helps you to lose weight.
