What is OMAD?

What is OMAD?

Weight loss community is a world full of jargon and abbreviation. I mean, you’d see these CICO, TDEE, IF… and had no idea what these experienced dieters were talking about. And then they broke down the abbreviation, and you thought… ah… those things, I’ve done those already. Like OMAD. Scrolling through both wordpress reader and instagram to get some inspiration of what I would cook for the day, I often come across this hashtag. I kept thinking, what the hell…

The Importance of Routines

The Importance of Routines

If there is one thing I miss so much about my pre-lockdown life is probably the daily routine. Having a predictable day is boring, but quoting Ryan Reynolds in The Hitman’s Bodyguard: Boring is Good. I like Ryan Reynolds, but who doesn’t? Anyway… where was I? Oh look how easy I got distracted. I mean I was ready to make a full wholesome post about the need to stick on a routine and then there was Ryan Reynolds… and then…

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. Like so many people who has tried a lot of diet in their younger years, the idea of NOT DIETING is wonderful. Intuitive Eating is basically that. The premise of Intuitive Eating is that you listen to your body, and make yourself happy with it, and you…

What Is The Difference Between Food Addiction and Binge Eating Disorder?

What Is The Difference Between Food Addiction and Binge Eating Disorder?

Since my post about addiction a couple of weeks ago, I started to think a lot about crisps and my rich tea biscuits. I thought for days that maybe… maybe I am as susceptible as any other people in this planet. Food might not sound as deadly as nicotine, or alcohol — unless of course, you are allergic to it — but, we have established that you can basically get addicted to anything that makes your brain released that happy…

Self Care Sunday (week 12)

Self Care Sunday (week 12)

Sunday!! Wow that was a very exciting week! First of all… I would like to let you know that I finally bought a car. I have been weighing the pros and cons, and of course thinking about the budget I was willing to spend on a car. I ended up buying a little cheap and cheerful Daihatsu. Hopefully this is going to last me a year, and I will be a happy bunny. I have to be honest though… Even…

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…

Talking About Your Weight Loss Goal

Talking About Your Weight Loss Goal

Sometimes I struggled to choose the right way of saying stuff in this blog. I’ve decided since the very beginning that this is not a blog about dieting, and I want to maintain it that way. But I want to talk about weight loss because I personally believe that having a healthy weight is… you know… healthy. Of course there are arguments about the definition of it… I heard that a lot. BUT, I am not going to go to…

What Are Food Allergy, Intolerance, and Poisoning?

What Are Food Allergy, Intolerance, and Poisoning?

So you went on a great weekend out with friends (within the rule of six, plenty of social distancing, and with masks on because you and your friends are decent people…). You guys went to a fancy restaurant, and had an awesome dining experience. The dishes were not only pretty and instagramable, but also very very tasty… But on your way home you felt a bit sick. Something is not right. And you suspected that it was something on your…

Self Care Sunday (week 11)

Self Care Sunday (week 11)

Oh my… goodness me… What the hell is going on? Am I time warping or something, because the last time I remember was thinking of how awesome it would be to buy a car. A week has gone since then and… I still haven’t decided to buy it yet. I am such a wuss when it is about spending some money… I mean… when it is about slaughtering the piggy bank, I suddenly turn vegan. Anyway… How are you guys?…
