Weight-loss is on everyone's mind nowadays. From movie stars dangling their six-packs before us to doctors warning us about everything from diabetes to cancer, it is no secret that millions of Indians are aspiring to lose weight.

The first thing people do when they embark on a weight loss regimen is to eat less. People start skipping meals, eating less of everything and predictably, within a week or two they become so bored and depressed that they lose heart and drop out.

People put on weight because of their poor lifestyle which includes getting little or no exercise and eating anything in front of them. Nutritionists say that only a reversal of this lifestyle and a switch back to a healthy lifestyle will help people lose weight and keep it off forever.
