  8 Tips to Follow a Low Calorie Veg Diet
1. Adopt healthy lifestyle practices, and cook and eat smart.

3. Exercise daily. That is a must. You must try and pick up a sport you love or try and exercise with friends. Yes, use the Gym also even if you are 70 years old.
4. Modify the recipes by replacing the high-calorie ingredients with low-calorie ones! Note if you are fit and lean, then you can have healthy high fat food. It will keep you feeling fuller and satisfied for a longer time. So you can opt for full fat paneer or curd.
5. Do not completely abstain from oils, dairy products etc. will lead to various deficiencies and diseases in the long run. Instead choose it wisely. Opt for olive oil as much as possible as it is good in Omega 3 fatty acids and choose Paneer over cheese always.
6. Eat small frequent meals every 2 to 3 hours. That’s a must. If you are working keeps some healthy snacks by your side or carry them if you are out of the house for a long time.
7. Try and get some Protein, Fat, and Complex Carbs in all your meals. For Vegetarians, have your dal, paneer, and curd to top of your protein.
8. Homemade food is the best and the healthiest. Cook your food and you know what you are putting into it. Avoid deep frying your food and stay away from packaged food which will solve 80% of your problems. Importantly, cut sugar consumption as it causes immediately inflammation in your body which can last for 4 to 6 hours and stores as fat immediately. Watch out for soft drinks, candy, chocolates etc.
