“YES YOU CAN DRINK AND LOOSE WEIGHT”


Don’t get too happy reading my title 🙂 Lets be realistic, sometimes there’s nothing better at the end of a long day than a glass of wine. Alcohol unfortunately has a bad reputation for many people trying to loose weight or who are into fitness.But reality is that alcohol is just another source of calories in your diet like how we have protein,carbs and fat.It has empty calories and no nutrition, and for sure cannot fill you up.

In my weight loss journey I never stopped drinking on my weekends.I used to …

I hope this helps you and gives you more than enough choices on veg protein. I feel most vegetarians are simply confused thanks to the western culture diets that are meat based, which leads them to believe that we do not get enough protein in plant based diets and even if we do, the choices are …

“BODY SHAMMING”


Body shaming has become very common. People will always blurt out things like “too fat”, “too thin”, “loose skin”, “jiggly arms”, “too muscular”, etc. LET PEOPLE KEEP TALKING, YOU JUST KEEP GETTING BETTER.
