What is Hypoglycaemia?

What is Hypoglycaemia?

Hypoglycaemia (phew that was a difficult word to type…) is also known as low blood sugar. Not just low as in slightly lower than average, but when your blood sugar level suddenly dropped, and you will… I mean you will know when that happens. To me and my mother, the drop of blood sugar level would start a weird sickness almost like motion sickness and dizziness… or even when it dropped more drastically we can feel a bit faint. Not…

What is Comfort Food?

What is Comfort Food?

When someone mentions Comfort Food, the first thing that pops into my mind is sugar. That would be followed with a lot of unhealthy snacks, high carbs and fat food. And then when I really really think hard I probably decide that Sunday Roast or Barbecue can be categorised as comfort food too. And minutes later, I would start thinking… are those food going to give me comfort? Why? I don’t think those food would make me fee comfortable at…

What Is Intuitive Eating?

What Is Intuitive Eating?

Of so many food related lifestyles (if you don’t really want to call it diet approaches), one that has piqued my interest for a couple of times is this idea of Intuitive Eating.

The premise of Intuitive Eating is that you listen to your body, and make yourself happy with it, and you…

How Did The Duchess of Cambridge Do It?

Both of my sisters have been confirmed to have PCOS, so they have a hard time to lose their pregnancy weight even after two years after they gave birth to my nieces. Of course, I have hinted this blog to them *cough*promotion*cough*, but I realised I haven’t covered the problem they’re having. To get rid the weight they gained during their pregnancy. So I searched around, and one particular pregnancy story interested me because… well, because somehow it popped up…

What are Keto, Paleo, and Atkins Diets?

What are Keto, Paleo, and Atkins Diets?

Well… well… well… are we going to start jumping to the trendy diets bandwagon now? I hope not. However, I found it helpful to equip myself with enough information, and insight about different diets’ approaches. Especially low carbs diets like Keto, Paleo, and Atkins diets. The reason why I am looking into the low carbs diet is because of PCOS which runs in my family. Since all my sisters are diagnosed with it, I am more than likely to have…

What is Brown and White Fat?

What is Brown and White Fat?

One thing about British summer I have learned since I moved to this country is that… it doesn’t last. A couple of weeks of heatwave, and then the temperature would just drop like nobody’s business. Last week I was either getting rained on while walking to work, or having to wrap up like it’s already autumn. But don’t feel bad now, because apparently the cold weather comes with its own perk for us who’s trying to lose weight. We have…

The Importance of Being Colourful

The Importance of Being Colourful

As you are trying to balance your diet and your meal planning, you often heard the advice of “Eat Your Greens”. Greens are obviously good. Nobody denies the goodness of kale, broccoli, and spinach. Plus, they’re usually low in calorie content, so of course pile away. But green is not the only colour you would like to have in your plate. It has not been easy to do, but I do try to eat my rainbow. It’s not always successful,…

How Body Positivity Movement Has Turned Toxic

How Body Positivity Movement Has Turned Toxic

When I started this blog, I did not want to touch this subject because I know how it is affecting people. I know how people can get very defensive when this subject is brought up, and I don’t want to reopen the wound, or make it worse… but I think something needs to be said. It started when I was watching one of Dr. Mike’s video. Yes, Dr. Mike — the legitimate doctor who did study medical, and shared his…

How Your Food Culture Affects Your Relationship With Food

How Your Food Culture Affects Your Relationship With Food

“Itadakimasu” Of all food culture in the world, I love the Japanese the most. Before they eat, they would put their hands together in front of their food, bow a little, and say “Itadakimasu”. Which now casually translated as something like “Bon apetit” but actually has a deeper meaning like being thankful for the food they are about to eat. But unlike saying grace, this has no religious undertone. Not just consider eating as a part of life — fuelling…
