A lot depends on what we are eating throughout the day. If we consume a lot of fat it would slow our metabolism and thus slowing us too. It is important for us to eat healthily. Green vegetables, fruits, juice, eggs, etc. provides an ample amount of nutrition. Drinking a lot of water also adds to our healthy body and helps in smooth digestion.
