EAT LESS, BUT MORE OFTEN
Experts agree that instead of two or three large meals a day, five to six small meals is way better for your health. Small portions help your body convert less of the food you eat into fat and maintain a constant blood-sugar level, making you less likely to experience dip of energy. So, indulge in small portions of supper and munch onto light snacking when the stomach starts growling. Bite into Digestive Cookies, Multigrain Cookies or Oatmeal Cookies as they will not add extra calories to your body, but instead fill you with fibre. You can also grab a handful of Trail Mix which is a delicious combination of nuts, seeds and dried fruits.

CUT ON CARBS & SUGAR, AND FILL WITH PROTEIN
Cut on carbohydrates and sugar in every meal and fill it with protein. Indulge in a platter of protein from lean meat or vegetable protein from various seasonal vegetables like spinach, broccoli, peas, etc. If you are looking for a better source of protein, then Spirulina is the right food for you. Super food, Spirulina contains one of the richest natural sources of protein making it the ideal nutrition food. So, pop a Spirulina capsule a day and avail the myriad health benefits!

DRINK AMPLE OF WATER
Water helps you burn more calories and help suppress your appetite. Experts recommend drinking eight, 8-oz glasses of water (about 2 liters) per day. However, this number is completely random as water requirements depend entirely on the individual. Add a dash of Multifloral Honey to your glass of water every morning and gulp down numerous benefits! Besides helping in regulation of fats, honey is also a natural remedy for many ailments. A great substitute to sugar, it helps in managing calorie better while adding many healthy nutrients in place of empty calories.
