Want to treat yourself for working out hard? Don’t even think about sugar and calories. Yes, you deserve a treat, but a healthy one. Eat foods that are rich in fibre and potassium. Also, include a lot of protein in your plate to build lean muscles. Also, avoid too much sugar and salt and find healthy alternatives to your favourite foods so you can enjoy it guilt-free. Drinking water is another important aspect of weight loss. You should drink 2 litres of water every day (that’s about two bottles).
