We hope that you have read our previous Blog on Getting Fit and ready for Summer (Yeah, yeah we know why you want to get fit specifically for the summers! 😉 )

If you have not then what are you waiting for? Check that out, too!

And, coming to this blog, as we were talking earlier, there are a lot of popular “diets”, and more so… how to’s, and the recipes to these diets are easily available through the Internet (clap! clap! Good Job, Internet!). There are also nutrition plans available through books and online. Again, just a quick reminder that each person’s diet does not have to be necessarily the same, and a lot has to be taken into consideration such as allergies, body type, etc. before you begin any kind of diets and/ or workout regimes.

Here, we only suggest you some recipes which you can try but make sure to have your balanced meals always!

So, some popular diets include Vegetarian, Vegan, and Paleo diets. Now, as some of you may not be aware of, there is actually a difference between being Vegetarian and Vegan. Though we won’t get into the details, some vegetarians consume dairy products and eggs while vegans tend to entirely exclude animal products from their diet. On the other hand, Paleo diet revolves around a “basic” diet where food originally comes from hunting, and it eliminates grain and legume consumption. A lot of people are now moving towards healthy lifestyles by combining these healthy diets with their workout or training routines.
(Vintage fashion, Old music, Aged wine, Old diets, don’t we love everything from the past?!)

Here are some meals to indulge in for each of the above mentioned diets!

First things first, finally, we can have some sun!Yaaay 🙂

The healthy lifestyle (*cough* New Year Resolution *cough*) we’ve been trying to fulfill all year long will come at ease as we can finally go out, enjoy the nature ,and bring our workout routines outside our homes. There’s nothing wrong with at-home exercises, but there’s also something more fulfilling when you get out there and see the beautiful day ahead of you and meet new people. Though the past few days have been gloomy, we are finally getting some sun today and even more… Summer is around the corner. While many of us want to have that beach bod ,we have to remember that having the ideal body means getting fit. More FITspiration, and less THINspiration (YES!)

Feeling great inside is more than just looking good outside. It’s all about diet. Now, diet does not necessarily mean starvation. It is a lifestyle, you are what you eat. A healthy lifestyle revolves around exercise, lots of water, good food: fruits and vegetables, and less stress. Of course, everyone is different, and one person’s diet does not necessarily work for everyone. It is very important to do some research first, or speak with a professional to learn about your ideal diet. There are a lot of websites that offer good advice when it comes to nutrition, and professionals out there who are more than happy to assist you.
