Confession Time: I Don’t Like Working Out

Confession Time: I Don’t Like Working Out

I would actually use the word ‘hate’ to describe my feeling towards exercising, but ‘hate’ is such a strong word. Instead I might just say that I really really do not like exercising… That’s the closest thing to hate I could manage. Some mornings, one of my colleagues would come to work all happy and chirpy, and being a nosy colleague, I would always ask her: ‘what’s the good news?’. Four times out of five, there were no good news….

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.

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…

In 2012 NHS published an article about the study carried out by researchers from the Karolinska Institute, Sweden, the University of Granada,…

What Is Your Body Type?

What Is Your Body Type?

I used to ignore this when I was younger, because I thought that this information was useless — mainly used by fashion magazines to help people finding clothes which looks good on their shape. And, not only useless, but also very very outdated too. There are two ways of classifying your body type. The first one is the one I heard a lot since I was younger: Apple, Pear, Rectangle, and Hourglass body type. And the second one is actually…

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…

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. Weight Loss Our second weigh-in (first weigh in after…
