Avoid Blunt Cuts and Bobs
Do not pull your hair straight back, if you want to avoid a rounder look. Better go for a high vertical bun that will create an illusion of a slimmer and longer face.
Enhancing Your Diet
It is important to know what you eat. It is not always better to limit your calorie intake, instead you should know which foods metabolize faster.
The Trouble with Calories
A very important, but not a very well known fact is that the same amount of calories coming from a piece of fatty meat or from a pile of fruits or vegetables will be metabolized in a different way. A person who eats two pounds of vegetables a day will lose weight faster than a person who eats three doughnuts and nothing else, even though the calorie intake might be the same in both cases.
