You can start being practical in choosing nutritious food the first day you go in the supermarket such as fruits and vegetables, and avoid high carbohydrate, high calorie and high in fat foods such as soda, ice cream, chips, chocolates and canned goods. Studies show that low-carb diet plans have been proven to incredibly reduce weight by lowering the production of ghrelin or “hunger hormone” so you won’t get hungry easily, thus reducing your food intake per day. It is best to consume real food which means eating real food or good quality and minimally processed food, and the food you buy should not even have a list of ingredients, otherwise, it should only be very short.
