Lost 7 kg in a month, I feel great and I am on my ideal weight limit But before we start I want to share some basic Metabolism : Body is like a engine , food fuel , so if lead sedimentary life style and eat junk food (bad fuel) , your body metabolism will slow down and you will gain fat , first near your tummy (Visceral fat) and all over body which is body way of storing access food as fat , FAT is evolutionary response , its supposed to used as reserve as food go low , ideal for cave man but not for us . So before you start excecising do this
