By: Namrita Chhibber

With the changing lifestyle and trend people have also changed in their eating habit, which unfortunately has gone towards a wrong direction. Today we are so busy in our priorities and needs that we eat anything that is available quickly and does not require time. Most of us also prefer going to lavish restaurants or funky eating joints because junk food is trendy. But we do not realize the mistake till we end up gaining kilos. Amazingly its only then, we ask ourselves 'what now'?

To be honest it's not yours or mine fault, life is becoming complex day by day leaving us with no time and no patience. If you are someone who is going through a post weight gain trauma and wondering if only you could have had avoided those burgers, french-fries and litre's of calorie loaded drinks, then my friend do no waste time in self criticism.

Let me tell you two most important things you would need for a weight loss and to get in shape. First and the foremost ingredients is 'hope'. And then follows 'discipline'. Sounds scary? The requirements of hope and discipline may be sounding like a military regime but the truth is getting in shape is an easy art. All you need to do is believe in yourself and stay firm on your resolution till you achieve the target and control over greed for food.

Now let us take a walk towards the important steps necessary for a routine of shape work. There is no doubt that the best step towards losing weight is exercise especially brisk walks. All you need to dedicate is 15-20 minutes of your day and a cut on your calories. Exercise is a 'friend in need' for those who know they can not afford to carry bulky fats and ruined body shape.

Once you decide to start your exercise you need to know few basic rules and one of them is diet. What's the whole point of stretching yourself and spending all those precious moments of life in walks or a gym when you are busy eating junk food, oily dinners and calorie bursting cuisines? Consuming nutrition is a good choice but consuming intelligent is what you need. While you are busy doing all those heavy fat burning exercises make sure the food you have is healthy, nutritious and energetic. Go for green food and protein filled diet and avoid carbohydrates.

It is always advisable to have protein intake when losing weight. Protein rich diet is a great source of burning fat. The reason behind the usage of protein in diet while continuing a shape work routine is the fact that more energy is required to digest protein. This is exactly what works in burning large calories. Protein also acts as a friend of your muscle tissues and protects them from burning by your body mechanism.

Intake of protein can be increased in diets by including eggs, chicken, cheese, soybeans and nuts in your meal. But it is advisable that if you are exercising and trying to lose weight then such source of protein should be taken with less of oil. These may add protein to your body but can be fattening too, thus health experts often advise protein intake with a difference.

Before I tell you about different sources of protein and better diet sources you must also know about the importance of water intake in weight management program. It is highly important to have lots of water in your daily routine. Water does everything that is good for your skin, organs and weight loss requirements.

Now coming back to protein sources, protein shakes, revitalizing herbal drinks and protein capsules are some extra protein source which act as diet supporters without any second thought of calorie intake.

Herbal products made for protein enrichment in your diet as well as the herbal dietary supplements being made today help in losing weight as well as in getting rid of excess hunger. These products or supplements also provide you with enough energy to burn your calories as well as keep you pleased with the amount you intake in your daily routine.

With the use of such products you will definitely start feeling the difference in your shape and body figure as well as gain back your lost confidence in life.

These herbal weight loss programs and diets are generally equipped by nutritional shakes, multivitamin supplements and protein rich powders. The benefit of herbal protein shake is also seen as a healthy snack. Often these programs ask you to have more than three but small meals to help your system in calorie burning and food digesting. The protein shakes act as a snack between your meals to help you feel satisfied and to support your weight loss. These programs and dietary protein rich sources are often accompanied by suggested usage and precautions so do not begin any such routine without guidance.

And if you are losing your confidence instead of your weight then remember the day when you did not fit in your favorite denim. Losing weight is definitely an art and all it takes is exercise, controlled diet, lots of protein, water intake as well as faith.
