The beauty of Ravello


By Virág Kiss


As we all know, a good diet is vital to help us squeeze into our tiny bikinis or Strings for Men 2014 J. Experts are agreed on the fact that losing weight depends on 70% diet and 30% training. But here we are, the first basic question pops up: what is a “good diet?” Is it easy to follow different diets and if yes how long can we keep to our desired weight?


From my experience healthy eating is not about very strict diet, rather it’s about feeling great, having more energy and helping you to reach your goals. A good diet is a nutritional lifestyle that promotes good health. It must include several food groups because one single group cannot provide everything a human needs for good health. A good diet should be easy to fit into your everyday schedule without complicated recipes and long grocery shopping. What’s the point of looking good if you’re a total grump, right? Before reading my tips, never forget this much adhered to principal from the fitness business: “Abs are made in the kitchen”.
The key element for a good diet is what to eat. I prepared a simple and easy approach for managing your nutrition. It provides you a solid framework while still giving you different choices. It allows you to eat from all food groups, so you don’t feel that you are in jail. Before you know it, you’ll be rocking your swimwear with confidence and shining as bright as the summer sun!
