The Importance of A Good Kitchen Scale

The Importance of A Good Kitchen Scale

I’ve been unfairly accused that my affinity towards a good kitchen scale is influenced by my current profession as a chef. Although it is true that having an accurate kitchen scale is invaluable in the kitchen, it is also very important when you are trying to lose weight. Kitchen scale offers you an accurate measurement when you want to properly count your calories intake. Why not using cups? Well… volume based measurement for dry ingredients is notorious for being inaccurate….

How Did Adele Do It?

How Did Adele Do It?

One of the latest celebrity weight loss success story is of course one and only Adele. Her new appearance definitely surprised many of her fans, and some even questioned her health. However Adele’s personal trainer has denied this rumour, and told the singer’s fan that she is healthy and happy with her body. So, how did Adele do it? Because of Adele, this is actually the first time I have heard of Sirtfood diet. I am not ashamed to admit…

Weigh In Wednesday (week 1)

Weigh In Wednesday (week 1)

So, it would be nice to know how am I doing so far. But why Wednesday though? It doesn’t have to, but it is always better to pick a day of the week for weighing in. Any day would do. A lot of people do it on Wednesday because it has a nice ring to it, just like Throwback Tuesday, or Manic Monday. But I digress. There is one good reason to pick a specific day of the week when…

What is BMI, BMR, and TDEE

What is BMI, BMR, and TDEE

As you are digging more information about weight loss, and how to do it safely and healthily, you will at some point stumble upon these: BMI, BMR, and TDEE, amongst other confusing jargon. But if you are just starting, in my personal opinion, these three is what to look out first. BMI (Body Mass Index) Many health practitioners use this a way to decide whether you are on a healthy weight. You can calculate it manually by dividing your weight…

This Is Not Diet

This Is Not Diet

I feel the need to establish that at the very beginning before I go further with this blog. I know it is way easier to tell people that I was on a diet than tell them that I was trying to eat more healthily. I feel a little bit guilty about it but imagine that you are having a lunch with your friends/coworkers, and they’re piling food on their plates, and you are eating something you prepped from home. They…

The Importance of Keeping A Food Journal

The Importance of Keeping A Food Journal

I could not believe that I had not think about this way earlier than I actually did. If I think about it, food journal makes a complete sense. How did I know that I wasn’t over eating if I did not even remember what I ate that day. As eating has become an integral part in our life, it is so easy to just do it without thinking. When you sit down on a coffee shop, and there’s a complimentary…

Now First Thing First

Now First Thing First

A lot of people struggle with weight loss because they guesstimate everything. It is literally impossible to know how to lose weight if you don’t really know how you weigh. Sounds like a common sense, right? But surprisingly, a lot of people don’t even own a proper bathroom scale. My husband never had a scale until I insisted on buying it for us, and that’s when he realised that he was way heavier than he thought he was. That’s exactly…

It Needs To Start Somehow

It Needs To Start Somehow

I think it is better for me if I start it with a story. Many years ago, roughly around 2015 I decided that I needed to lose some weight. I was not unhealthily overweight — in fact I was just on the top border of my normal BMI (Body Mass Index), but I was not happy with the way I was and how I had let myself go. Like many people said over and over again, BMI could mean nothing…
