Top 6 diets women followed this year

For both men/women, one of the best and easiest ways of losing weight is following a diet plan. Many consider cutting down fats and carbs from their diet while some switch only to cereals for survival. We are what we eat and that’s what makes us more than 90% where we stand. Lifestyles keep changing but most of us end up eating unhealthy.
