No more late night snacks to fill your cravings.
4. Do NOT skip meals!
Contrary to popular belief that not eating helps you lose weight, it is quite essential to eat all 3 meals in a day. Make each meal portion small. You can extend these 3 meals to 5 small meals without worrying about gaining weight! An empty stomach makes you feel hungrier and as a result making you eat more!

This isn’t the first time you’ve heard this, but it’s equally important! Drinking water does many things for you including assisting in digestion and making you feel less hungry.

Walking keeps your body in motion, keeping your muscles and bones active. It helps burn 6 to 8 calories per minutes, on an average!
