There’s a misconception that it is impossible to lose weight if you’re on a Nigerian diet. Most Nigerian food is characteristically heavy, and people who are trying to lose weight tend to completely avoid Nigerian meals. Good news! You don’t have to give up the Nigerian food that you love just so you can lose weight. Here are some tips that will help you lose weight on a Nigerian diet.
1. Cut down the carbohydrates
Nigerian meals tend to contain a lot of carbs. Excess carbohydrate is stored in the body as fat which leads to weight gain. If you cut down the rate at which you consume meals such as eba, yam, semovita, rice and bread, your body will be forced to make use of the fat that has been stored and you will lose weight. Instead of eating heavy carbs every day, you can have them once a week.
