Knowing the reason as to why you are committing yourself to a specific plan should be very important. When you are planning to lose weight may it be for health reasons or for aesthetics and beauty, you need to identify your reasons and choose a plan that is very convenient with you and you can easily commit to it.
A healthy breakfast should be the first thing you opt for. It gives you the energy to start a day’s activity with most metabolic activities being catered for by the breakfast. Also it is important to have something to eat maybe a fruit or a smoothie 3-4 hours during the day. Gives one appropriate energy.
Water should be something that you should drink always no matter what time of the day.

During the 30 day period, ensure you keep of fruits that are generally sugar oriented and indulge in something like the grapes. Also with a balanced plate for your meal, avoid free fats and focus on healthy fats that are key to your health. Keep a very optional but reliable source of protein.
