TALK HEALTHY


DIETING???
I believe lots of people out there are trying to diet especially females. I bet you are too! However, people are shy to talk about it. I just don’t know why. You should actually share if you have achieved your targeted goals and help your friends who are overweight or obese by advising them. Maybe you think it’s very rude to do so but it is for their good. Think about it… Don’t be so selfish. Shame on you… =P

WE SHOULD EAT TO LIVE BUT NOT LIVE TO EAT!!!

For your information, our stomach is just about the size of our fist. And people tend to eat much more than it. Slowly, your stomach will increase in size and the amount of food needed to satisfy yourself will tend to increase. So, what should you do if you have been eating for such large portion of food for years? EAT LESS!!! Decrease food intake will not shrink your stomach but it can help to reset your "appetite thermostat" so you won't feel as hungry, and it may be easier to stick with your eating plan.
However, eat less does not mean that you can eat whatever you want as long as it is small portion…

I bet all of you are very familiarize with this food pyramid since seven, perhaps? But why aren’t you following it? Will you ever make mistakes in the sequence of ABC? No right? Because it has been imprinted in us since young but why not this?
Speaking of this, I also do not follow this. Haha … But from now onwards, I’ll try my best to follow it =)

The 2nd thing is that, it’s better to eat many small portions of meals instead of 1 or 2 or 3 big portion of meals per day. It can increase your metabolism. Your energy level will be stable instead of peaking and plummeting.

3rd , people, don’t be so lazy to exercise!!! You may not need to go jogging or gym every day. But simple things like using the stairs instead of lifts, walk instead of driving if it’s short distance, go shopping ( I bet girls like this ), and etc, will really help a lot. One important note, do not sit too much!!! Like now, I bet you are sitting. Haha gotcha!!! if you are watching TV or using the laptop or working, make a habit to stand and stretch your body or make some movements for like 2-3minutes after an hour of sitting. It’ll not waste much of your time.

4th, I heard people say rice has really high caloric value. But we are Asians!!! We survive with rice! Yea, but for those who want to diet, reduce your portion of rice. It does help a lot. Reduce from two bowls to 1 bowl or 1 to ¾…or maybe just take 1 meal of rice per day. Other food like vegetables, fruits and meat, remain the same. You can see the difference.

BTW, you will not be able to be slimmer in a day or two. It’s depends on how persistence and consistence you are. So, be patient and you will enjoy the fruits of your labor!
