India has seen a paradigm shift in the eating habits of the people. Women, men and youth have become conscious of their food intake. We all know that a balanced meal is one that compromises of the five basic nutrients i.e. Carbohydrates, Proteins, fats, minerals and Vitamins. We all have figured out eating small meals, five times a day keeps you metabolism kicking. Infact, each of us have a different tip to pass on when it comes to balanced diet or losing weight. Most women fall in the trap of thinking that by being thin they are healthy and a voluptuous woman is unfit and unhealthy. In this case the perception is misjudged. A voluptuous woman can be healthy and a woman with a perfect figure can actually fall prey to many diseases. I have seen a very close friend fall prey to a serious ailment in order to maintain her weight.
The definition of dieting has drastically changed. We are not looking at starvation here but healthy eating . Healthy eating will make you slim and beautiful whereas fad diets may make you slim but in return give you unhealthy dull skin, hair and also dark circles around your eyes. Most importantly it is harming your immune system slowly and will have an adverse effect one day.
