Q:-11 Will there be any effect on the skin? Will I lose my glow or get wrinkles?
Ans:- No, there will be no side-effects on skin, in fact it will enhance the glow because nutrient content of diet is high. Since the rate of weight loss is slow, the skin has much elasticity to contract; it will not give you wrinkles. Yes, if you are beyond 60, it might show mild weight loss around your neck, but that is natural since the underlying fat is removed. But the elasticity of the skin is generally very good below the age of 50.

You need to consult your family physician on regular basis during the program. In all likelihood the program will make you reduce your dosage, as on the program your blood pressure will come down towards normal. This can help you in reducing your dosage of medicine or stop it completely & what else could be better than that.

Ans:- Exercise is always used for increasing your metabolism, increasing your skin texture, improving your muscle tone, increasing vitamin update for avoiding depression. These are the reasons why one should exercise. Weight loss can be seldom achieved by vigorous exercise. You may have to exercise for at least an hour & half every single day, for one month to just knock of about 3 to 4 kgs. This is an impossible task for most people. Hence if you combine with sensible diet program along with active lifestyle, you could benefit by loosing at least ½-1kg per week.
