Eating Healthy During Ramadan

During Ramadan our food cravings increase and by the end of Ramadan we gain loads and loads of fat. It becomes really difficult for us to lose those heavy pounds quickly. Here are few healthy eating tips to reduce those cravings and you will not feel as hungry as before.
1. Drink Water. When you wake up at 4am to have your fulfilling meal, have few dates and drink lots and lots of water. Wait for sometime till your brain gets the signal that your stomach is almost full. Then go for the other food choices. This will decrease your fat intake. Drinking lots of water helps to keep you hydrated, since your body might get dehydrated due to fasting.
2. When you open your fast, have few dates and drink lots of water again. Choose fruits first so that your body can get the nutrients required as well as fill your hungry tummy. Then if you still feel hungry go for one or two fat food, not more than that
3. Don't eat just after one hour of opening your fast. Have your dinner after 2-3 hours. Thi…

This Yummilicious fruit is yummy but healthy too. Ever thought about its benefits?
Raspberry contain one integral compound called Raspberry Ketone which is effective at boosting weight loss.

Healthy Salad

Ingredients :
* 6 leaves of Lettuce
* 1 Tomato
* 1 Carrot
* 1/2 Bell Pepper (If they are small you can take one whole.)
* 1/2 Lemon
* 7 Almonds
* 2 tbsp of Olive Oil
* 1 tbsp of Egg white (Optional)
* 1/2 tsp of Salt/Sugar (If the sourness doesn't please you.)

1. Chop the leaves of lettuce to a small size. Small size makes it easier for you to consume.
2. Cut Carrot, Bell Pepper and Tomato into small cubes.
3. Soak Almonds in warm water to make them softer. This makes it easy to peel them off. Chop them. 
4. Combine all of these together. Squeeze lemon and add its juice into the mixture. 
5. Add Salt or Sugar if you want.
6. (Optional) Add the egg white into the combination. I love Egg whites so I usually add them to Salads, Smoothies and most of the things I prepare. 
7. Finally, top with olive oil.

Makes one serving.
Its up to you to add as many veggies as you want.

Top Five Foods for Fat Loss

Not everyone knows about the right food to eat to lose fat easily. Protein, Fats and Carbohydrates will help increase your metabolism and boost your lean mass to help you get rid of your unwanted fat. 

Here's a list of top five fat loss foods according to me. Adding these five foods into your balanced diet will help you to provide essential nutrients to your body and help you shed the unwanted fat.

Great! Isn't it?

2. Sprouted Whole Grain Bread 
This bread is made from sprouted wheat berry, picked, grounded up and then added to the mixture. So, it is flourless.  It provides more vitamins, minerals, essential amino …
