Calorie Cycling: How I Solve My CICO Problem

Calorie Cycling: How I Solve My CICO Problem

I cannot believe that I haven’t heard about this already. Alright… Since this post, I have been thinking that IF I weigh myself on a weekly basis, it makes a lot of sense if I count the calories on a weekly basis too. This means, I can have a lot more fun on my day off, including drinking some alcohol and eating take away food. This is what I thought… Basically if I allocate… for example… 1500kCal a day, so…

How Do You Say No?

How Do You Say No?

Alrighty… today I need some help. I have this teeny tiny little problem with saying ‘no’ especially at work, and as much as it doesn’t affect my job too much… sometimes it just went really bad with my meal plan. How so? As some of you probably have heard, I am working as a chef. One of the perks by working around food is obviously the ability to have nice food within the reach. However if you want to control…

How Did Paul Hollywood Do It?

How Did Paul Hollywood Do It?

I was tempted to use seven question marks when I wrote that title. Of all celebrity chef’s weight loss stories, Paul Hollywood’s weight loss has probably boggled me the most. As someone whose job is literally to eat cakes and pastries, it is just unbelievable that ANYONE can lose the amount of weight he did. Thing is… he did not look that big to start with. Through the years of seeing him on The Great British Bake Off, I actually…

How Did The K-Pop Idols Do It?

How Did The K-Pop Idols Do It?

To be honest, I am now just too old to follow the pop culture, regardless the country they’re coming from. However, it’s incredibly refreshing to see Asian faces on the front page for a change. It is interesting how they’ve become really popular. For me, however, their popularity has brought back the familiar feeling of inadequacy and self doubt. While the western culture I currently live in embraces the fuller figure, the curvaceous feminine features, the eastern culture are still…

Weigh In Wednesday (week 5)

Weigh In Wednesday (week 5)

This was a weird week. After celebrating my one month of blogging, and all the achievements I had last week… I actually started to feel kind of blue. The week did not start well, and I had a mini disagreement with my husband. A little tear involved, and the raw emotion just flew out in the air. Wasn’t a pretty sight, I have to admit. So yeah, feeling blue. It feels like there’s a tender imaginary spot whenever I breathed….

Weigh In Wednesday: One Month, Lighter and Brighter Already :)

Weigh In Wednesday: One Month, Lighter and Brighter Already :)

I cannot believe it’s been a month since I started this blog. You know what? As it happens, my first month coincides with my fourth weigh-in Wednesday, so let’s pick a priority. Weigh in first, and then we get to celebrate. Shall we? Why didn’t I think about using tables before? I don’t know, but surely this is a much better way of presenting a statistic, isn’t it? Seven hundred grams. It seems small, but for me it is good…

What Is Intermittent Fasting?

What Is Intermittent Fasting?

Intermittent fasting has been very popular for a very long time now. I first heard about it around six or seven years ago when one of Indonesian celebrity adopt this diet and transformed himself from a chubby magician, into a buff mentalist. Wasn’t really interested because the way he promoted it as his own hadn’t been backed up with science. Until a couple of years ago, when I actually heard about the real intermittent fasting. This time it was not…

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,…

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…

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…
