Most of the modern day weight loss diets are bad for overall body health. Most of them require complete absence of certain food groups (carbohydrates and fats) if you want them to work for you.

Likewise majority of these diets works only as long as you stick with their strict regimen, once you stop, you will very likely gain all the weight you lost and probably gain a few pounds extra.

The key to increased metabolism lies in actually eating more, not less. But you have to eat smart, drop the junk food and include much more vegetables and fruits in your diet.

The good news is that it is much easier to do then most people think. All you have to do is to substitute bad stuff for good and that is it. Example, instead of eating Mars bar eat an apple.

That is it, apply the same principle on every one of your meals and you will soon feel the benefits of it. Not only will you lose weight but your general health condition will gain a huge boost.

When you eat fruits and vegetables try to eat as many of them as you can raw. It doesnt mean that you have to eat every single vegetable and fruit raw, but if something needs to be cooked - cook it.

Vegetables: asparagus, aubergine, Broccoli, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Chicory, Cress, Cucumbers, Fennel, Gourd, Leek, Lettuce, Marrow, Peppers, Radish, Spinach, Tomatos, Turnip
