Rearrange your diet

Fasting has often been misinterpreted and used in a wrong way. Fasting never means giving up eating. It is actually a control measure on your diet and very much a part of your diet.

When you are on fast you are actually trying to give a balanced shape to your diet. Fasting keeps a control over your appetite and tries to put off your hunger cravings. Over these years you have already build up overeating habits. You cannot bring a pause to them all of a sudden. What you can do is give a break to your eating habit and eating schedule.

* Don't eat a lot a time. Break up your one time meal into two parts and have it twice.

* Chuck off the fatty substances and take care of the preparation part. Most often over frying of an item reduces its food value and consuming those also helps you to gather more flab around your abs. You can prefer stews and soups instead of spicy curries and fries.

* Help yourself with salads and fruit juice. Try to avoid raw sugar and prefer to use sugar-free.

* Frame a healthy schedule to consume food at regular interval of time. Don't either over eat and also don't starve yourself. Try having your breakfast, lunch and supper timely. This helps in easy digestion and keeps you away from gas and constipation troubles.

* With a healthy diet associate the fasting mode coupled with exercises. You will observe fast results if you can carry them out simultaneously.

* Last but not the least, never adopt fasting as an easy means to get out of obesity. It might be a boomerang. Under compulsion you fast rigorously and loose 5 pounds in 15 days and the next month you grow another 6 pounds unable to resist your eating spree. So fasting becomes useless.
