4. Modify the recipes by replacing the high-calorie ingredients with low-calorie ones! Note if you are fit and lean, the 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 a it is good in Omega 3 fatty acids and choose Paneer over cheese always.
