What is the most effective way to lose weight? This is one of the most common questions asked to dietitians and nutritionists. When it comes to weight loss, most of you focus only on losing weight and how quickly and efficiently we can do it. Giving up on a few food groups like carbs and fats seem to be just the right thing to do. But according to celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar, the very practice of looking at foods like carbs, protein, fats and calories make food very complicated.
Speaking of fitness, she goes on to mention that fitness isn't just about exercising for 1 hour or 2 hours in a day and then lazing around the rest of the time. Fitness is built by compounding effects of your little efforts made towards fitness on a daily basis. These efforts should bring a positive change to your overall lifestyle. Fitness certainly cannot be achieved to the fullest by blindly following the latest diet or workout plan which is trending on social media.
Following the above rules are probably all that you need to live a healthy and fit life. But Rujuta's mission to make the country doesn't stop here.

7. Meal 7 of the day is your dinner, which should be consumed 2-3 hours before bed time. It should be rice or a millets-based meal with ghee.
8. The last and final meal of the day should be at bedtime. If you feel hungry just before sleeping, you can have a glass of milk with cashews or gulkand or chyavanprash.
Rujuta says in her Facebook post that this meal plan can work equally well for people suffering from diabetes, heart ailments or blood pressure problems. This diet can also be followed by people suffering from Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) and thyroid. Loss of fat can also be achieved by following the aforementioned diet, according to Rujuta.
