Nutritious diet: A way to lose weight

With weight loss topping the list of New Year's resolution for most of the people this year, the nutrition experts have warned against going for a crazy fad or crash diets to achieve their goal. Simple, nutritious eating is the best way to achieve a healthy resolution weight loss goal, suggest experts. Women are the most likely victims of fad diets. While Fad diets or starvation seem easy, but the truth is these strategies are bad - and they just don't work, say Nutritionists.

A few healthy diet tips include: Avoid having processed meats, skipping breakfast and refined grains like white bread and rice which have fewer nutrients. Instead, people should have lots of colourful veggies, which are high in fibre and low in calories, and to satisfy the sweet tooth, one can have a snacks of fresh or dried fruits. People should eat lots of popcorn, which contains fibre and anti-oxidants but hardly any calories. However, Popcorn without butter is recommended.
