Personally, I don't practiced extreme diet. And I'll never will. What I did is that, I set up the weight range I feel suitable for myself. For example, 48kg-54kg. If my weight don't go above the upper limit then I have nothing to worry about.


But if the circumstance is otherwise, I'll start reducing the fast food. Or eat less rice by substituting it with other carbs sources with less calories. Then, I'll exercise more often. If let says, my work out routine, is jogging twice a week, then perhaps I'll make it 4 times a week. But, exercise is a must whether you gain weight or not. Usually, what I do is either go for a jog or play badminton. Or simply tidying the house. Haha!

What u mustn't do is, emptying your stomach the whole day and eat like hell at the end of the day. Or exercise all out, but eat a lot at the end of the session.

Eat well and u'll be healthy and happy =)
