Being on a diet is hard. It becomes even harder when the keto diet recipes you find after painstaking research turn out unfit for your lifestyle.

Quite often, the ingredients will either be too expensive or too exotic.  Some of the recipes are so elaborate even Gordon Ramsay is bound to mess that up.  After a long day, the temptation to just order a delectable biriyani with aromatic spices and juicy chicken chunks is sometimes too strong to fight off.

I feel you sister!

Weight loss is hard. Sometimes no amount of exercise or diet seems to help. That is why doctors recommend herbal weight loss products to accelerate the process.

For the busy Indian girls who are struggling to stay faithful to their diets, here are 5 recipes which mean business.
