Focus on a balanced diet with adequate amount of protein, fibers, carbs and essential fats. Include a lot of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in your diet. Also have low-fat dairy products like low-fat cheese, skimmed milk and light yoghurt along with lean cuts of meat. Avoid temptation and junk food.
