to live, we have to eat even you do diet. To me, I do not recommend to skip meals for diet. Do not even calculate calories. Your body knows the amount of foods you have to consume. Never skip breakfast. For the breakfast, I do recommend a small rice with kelp (Kim) for the consumption of glucose, mineral consumption and salt. If somebody likes juice, carrot, apple, ginger and tea can be an ideal components to be.
And for lunch and dinner, I do recommend a traditional dishes. No matter what origins are, if possible, be away from flour and pasta, which makes your body swallen during the consumptions.

In addition, we sit longer than our ancistors did.
We need to take more hot stuffes. It does not mean that we have to take spicy food. Just the fruits, vegetables and meats, which has hot energy componets.
