Summer has more day and less night timings. That is the main reason for most of the people choosing summer as their favorite season as they feel they can enjoy more being fresh during summer. Proper diet plan and work outs make you feel much better and energetic throughout the day. It is a common fact that we sweat more during summer and lose energy easily. Thus, it is also the time to lose any extra weight, gradually. At the same time compensating the body with necessary ingredients also need to be focused.
The following are the major 10 diet tips that could help you to be healthy.
1. Minimum 8 glasses of water
