Weight Loss and Mental Health

Weight Loss and Mental Health

My first ever encounter with the word ‘diet‘ was when I was around 9 or 10 years old. Definitely not more than twelve, and I am sure I was still studying in Primary School. One of my school friend was a child model. She was so pretty, and obviously because she was exposed to modelling world, she was ahead of us in this body image industry. Sometimes I wonder if she is still doing this for a living, but at…

The Importance of Support System

The Importance of Support System

I think this is why weight management companies are popular. Having a support system is definitely a plus point when you are trying to lose weight. Having someone who is going to recognise your achievement, or push you harder for that extra mile, to shift that extra kilo… Some of us know the pain of trying to eat healthy while the other family members are not on board with the idea of swapping the butter with sunflower spread. Oh yes,…

How Did Tom Kerridge Do It?

How Did Tom Kerridge Do It?

Another chef who lost it big is Tom Kerridge. The Michelin star chef has put it on his job as the reason why he was big to start with. And who can blame him? If I am a Michelin star chef, I would like to eat my food all day too… So, how did Tom Kerridge manage to lose a massive 12 stones? If you’re not from Britain, you probably won’t know what 12 stones is. 12 stones is around…

Weigh In Wednesday (Week 3)

Weigh In Wednesday (Week 3)

I finally gave up trying to find my measuring tape. I am sure my husband took it when he wanted to buy a new trousers, but as usual he did not put it back where he found it. Anyway, I couldn’t find it for almost a month now, and weigh-in Wednesday is not a proper weigh-in Wednesday without getting the measurements as well. So I ordered one, and it came in a pack of three. Gave one for my husband…

What Is The Difference Between Weight Loss, Fat Loss, and Muscle Loss

What Is The Difference Between Weight Loss, Fat Loss, and Muscle Loss

Our body weight is actually made up of water, fat, and muscle. When we are talking about weight loss, we are usually talking about the number on our weight scale. Which is fair enough, because that number is the one used on BMI formula, but as we are going to go deeper and aim for healthier lifestyle and better fitness, it is important to know what this weight loss is about.

Cheating Sundays?

Cheating Sundays?

Just a couple of weeks a go I realised that people used their weekends as their cheat days. It is interesting for me, because Sunday has a dark food history as the day when people actually cheat. Weird right? Rumour has it that in the end of 1800’s there’s such a law in the US which prohibit the sales of soda water on Sundays because it is a vice. Ice cream soda, which was at that time best sellers were…

The Importance of Snacking

The Importance of Snacking

My sisters did not believe me when I said I still eat crisps and biscuits when I was losing weight. I think if I don’t have a room for a snack or two, I am planning my meal wrong. Personally, I think snacking is just as important as the main meal itself. When you are changing your eating behaviour, especially when you are trying to lose weight, you will be hungry. Of course you will, because you are practically eating…

How Did The Hairy Bikers Do It?

How Did The Hairy Bikers Do It?

Coming from my line of work, The Hairy Bikers weight loss transformation feels more relevant to me. I am not sure how popular The Hairy Bikers are outside the UK, but they are very popular celebrity chefs in the UK. Si King and Dave Myers are two British chefs who travel around the world on their bikes, trying wonderful food, and cook wonderful food. They pulled that biker looks very well, especially with massive bushy beards, and big presence. You…

Reblog: Menstruation, Appetite, and Body Weight — SUFOMAuto Draft

“I don’t know what’s happening to me. They’re called hormones.” – Tahereh Mafi I am reading a book called The Women’s Book from Lyle McDonald. It’s an elaborate explanation about nutrition, fat loss, and muscle gain for woman. It’s a very long book and based on researches and science. Although it feels like reading an […] Menstruation, Appetite, and Body Weight — SUFOM I found this incredibly useful information from Mrs CL about how woman’s body changes during the monthly cycle….

Weigh In Wednesday (week 2)

Weigh In Wednesday (week 2)

Ugh… I woke up feeling incredibly bloated, and I am not feeling very well. I checked my Clue, and it is definitely not a very good time to do a weigh in. However, for the sake of consistency, let’s just pretend that menstrual cycle have nothing to do with it. So… This week has been quite testing because it was my first week doing this while working. Granted it is a part time job, but I am not sure how…
