Alter your diet according to whether you want to lose or gain weight
Consult with a nutritionist for a diet plan tailored to your health goals
When you eat whatever is within arm’s reach, you end up consuming high quantities of sugar, salt and fat, which can lead to obesity, diabetes, hypertension and heart disease. On the other hand, if you skip meals or don’t eat enough, you can face chronic fatigue, difficulties in reproduction, weakened immunity, and even osteoporosis. The only way to keep illnesses at bay and maintain a healthy weight is to follow a healthy diet plan.
