Diets That Really WorkIs it possible to whittle your waist and get the body you've always yearned for, without giving up on your favourite foods? Sure, the secret is to eat smarter - live it up with the right foods and you'll be surprised to know the .

Gorge on fruits

The more fruits you include in your diet, the faster your weight is lost. Fruits contain mostly water, so they're low on calories. They are also high in fibre, which keeps hunger in control. An added perk of eating fruits is that it also keeps diseases away. They are low in calories and high in fiber, so they satisfy your sweet tooth without upsetting your diet. Pomegranate seeds for instance are rich in folate and disease-fighting antioxidants. They're low in calories and high in fiber, so they satisfy your sweet tooth without upsetting your diet.

Green Tea - the magic brew

The health benefits of green tea are mind blowing and it is really worth adding this to your daily diet. Green tea fights weight gain, keeps your blood pressure in check, lowers the risk of cancer and keeps your heart healthy.

Get high on dairy

To shed those pounds fast, include calcium rich foods in your diet. Dairy products like milk and yogurt are fabulous fat burners. The calcium in these helps boost weight loss by increasing fat breakdown in the fat cells. If you like low-fat yogurt, it's even better! You could treat yourself to a healthy smoothie whipped with your favourite fruit.

Get in balance

Eat a diet that's 45 percent carbs, 30 percent protein, and 35 percent good-for-you fats-olive oil, fish, or nuts. Add some punch to your food with some exciting dressings without worrying about accumulating the kilos. Drizzle some almonds on your salad, sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on the pasta, or slice cucumber on your sandwich.

Have a hearty breakfast

Start the day with a well-balanced spread. Breakfast is the most important meal and a key part of the stay-slim plan. It not only swings your metabolism into action but also supplies glucose to your brain keeping you mentally alert until lunch. So you don't have to feel guilty about enjoying a healthy spread in the morning.

Moderation is key

Avoid going to the extremes. Don't punish yourself with harsh diets nor let yourself loose and go on the binge. Snack on healthy foods often and whatever you're munching, make sure it's in moderation.
