When I think of salad diet, the first thing comes in my mind is- am I ill or am I suffering from anything severe? No, in today’s world we have very less time to take care of our body and if somebody want to get perfect body he /she has to follow a regular regime.
Many people go to gym; many prefer to do yoga daily- both are good things to maintain a body. But time is a factor and may be place is also a factor .And even if many offices, there are provisions to do yoga or it is having gym but finding out the time and do it daily may become tough.

Why so many physician or specialist suggests taking salad diet because salad diet is low in calorie. Daily intake of salad diet helps in loosing in your weight. It’s a tough job to continue eating these foods but it doesn’t mean that you can’t take a sip of your favorite drink or favorite chocolates or burger. Occasionally you can enjoy these items in your menu.
There are few items which you can take but assure whether it’s of low calorie or not:
Candies or chocolates
No need to say no to candies or chocolates. It may be painful to you to say no to sweets. Once in a week you can take a bite of candies or chocolates but it will be better if you check in or go for fewer calories.
Meat: Many people include meat in their lunch or dinner but it is high in calories and has fat. Instead of using beef as filler in your burger, which is of high calorie, can use turkey, which is low in calorie and rich in protein.
Fruit juice: It is a nice substitute for carbonated drinks. Mango juice will not help you to loose your weight but it is healthy or sugar free drinks will serve the purpose. Lemon juice will be effective in toning your body.
Bread: To loose weight, the food which is rich in carbohydrate and fat should be avoided. Keep a slice of whole-grain bread, which is of low calorie, for your breakfast menu along with juice or salad.Fried foods should be avoided . Bake the food like potato .Hope it will not taste bad!
Main motif of salad diet is to keep you fit and healthy as well as give you the nutrition required the body to carry out daily activities.Eating lots of green vegetables rather than fattening foods will keep you perfect.
