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…

What Is CICO, Macro, and Micro Nutrition?

What Is CICO, Macro, and Micro Nutrition?

After understanding about BMR and TDEE, it is time to build your healthy eating plan. The effective healthy eating plan should not be punishing. It should not make you feel miserable. But the most important thing is that it has to show result. As you go deeper about meal planning, you start seeing these jargon around: CICO, Macro, and Micro. What are they? CICO It is the abbreviation of Calories In, Calories Out. It is pretty self explanatory, basically you…

UK Against Obesity…

UK Against Obesity…

Okay… politics aside, this might be a good idea. I say might, because I know that science has proven times and again that obesity may lead to a lot of health problems. I say might, because I know that based on statistics, obese people are more vulnerable to COVID-19. But I say might because I am not sure how this time, this project is going to work. Long before COVID, the government has tried to control the obesity rate. Some…

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….

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…
