Food Stead: Yes, good food does matter. But the key to your problem is to eat the right food. Get rid of all the oily fatty food from your diet. Add in a lot of greens and coloured veggies.
Light salads with yummy dressings work amazingly well. It also makes you feel light and happy. Add a lot of varied lettuces, beet, carrot, tomatoes, olives and more. A dash of vinegar dressing and this is an amazing meal by itself.
Have loads of nuts and dried fruits. They fill the stomach, give the necessary vitamins but also doesn’t overfill you.
Green and coloured veggies: Fresh veggies including spinach, capsicums, beans and cabbage are a boon. Sauté them instead of overcooking as that may kill the nutrients.

Who says only vegetarians are super svelte? Lean meats without skin is good for you too. It gives the proteins yet cuts down the fat.
Fruits: Fruits have natural sugars so are excellent for you. It zaps up the energy and makes you feel amazing. …nd also fills the stomach.
