10 Essential Diet Foods

diet foodsHello Ladies,

Hope you all are doing fine. 🙂 It’s been a long time since I wrote for IMBB, not many of you know of this but what kept me away from writing was my migration from India to Dubai. Shifting countries can be quiet a task, I mean it’s not just the whole run and hush you have to go through physically but it also exhausts you mentally, and adjusting mentally is way more difficult than any physical adjustment.

So finally after settling down and getting my internet thingy done I thought of getting back to where I belong. I missed you guys! I mean I really missed you people, it feels nice reading the comment section and reading fabulous posts on IMBB. I was never away but I had time bindings in the cyber parlors which kept me from commenting but now I am glad to be back. 🙂

Dieting is almost an habit with all of us these days, I mean we just need a reason to diet. Isn’t it? Whilst some of us are great at it many of us fail to be loyal.

Dieting and staying fit are poles apart. I mean you do not necessarily need to diet to stay fit, however many of us assume the latter. Dieting if done in the right way can give great results undoubtedly but if dieting is over done or if we simply starve it can be fatal too. Remember the Brazilian model who died off Dieting?

In this article I will be listing 10 of the essential diet food stuffs which must be accommodated in our diet plans, these will not only help you control your weight but will also give you the right nutrition and energy.

    Yesterday I made a Calzone….out of a Pizza dough…..just roll it out flat….stuff it with a filling on one side….fold it over and pinch the semi-circle with a fork….Then make three quick slashes with a serrated knife on the top and bake it in hot oven for 15-20 minutes!!!!

    The filling was :jalwa:
    Bell Peppers chopped
    Onions chopped
    cooked corn
    Lots of cheese (grated)
    1 egg beaten
    Salt and pepper and italian seasoning
    All of the above mixed together!!!

    Serve the Calzone with Pizza sauce 😉
