Here are some weight loss moves that have actually helped many Nigerians after the holidays. Do save this. You may want to try one, or a combination, when you’re desperate to shed some weight after chopping the life of your head.
You know that if you’re serious about losing weight, sugary drinks are a no-no; water should be your beverage of choice. You’re aware that lifestyle changes trump “dieting”, that you need lots of fruits and vegetables in your diet, and that you can’t lose tummy fat alone without losing weight all round.
