Well, if working magic is what a diet should do, why not try the Magic diet itself? Television heartthrob and former Miss Kerala Ranjini Haridas has been following a diet, which she learnt about from a friend, but personalised and christened ‘Ranjini’s Magic diet’. “It is simple. Just cut the ‘whites’ out of your food,” she says. The ‘whites’ (sugar, rice, bread, milk…) could be replaced with ‘browns’ of course, but in limited amounts. “It is not drastic or demanding like a fad diet,” says Ranjini.
