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…

Self Care Sunday

Self Care Sunday

Sometimes when I write my blog, I also wonder how other bloggers do theirs. As in… Do they reset their weekly counter from the beginning of the year, so this Sunday would be the 2nd week of the year (or 3rd?). Or… since we are just keep going on, so this Sunday would be the 24th (..? I actually lost count). Or does it matter? I mean I have to admit that I do care about what other people think…

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…

The Importance Of An Update – Three Months And Still Going

The Importance Of An Update – Three Months And Still Going

I need to apologise again because of my inconsistency lately. Especially last week where I completely disappear for the whole week. But I am back, with some updates… First of all, of course… This blog is now three months old. Belated celebration, of course. I would like to thank everyone who are still following, and still commenting and sending messages. I always find that blogging community is one of the best support system online — especially for those who are…

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…

The Importance Of A Good Night Sleep

The Importance Of A Good Night Sleep

I haven’t had enough sleep for the past two weeks. I don’t have a good reason for that, and I am not going to make excuses for such a bad habit. However that sleep deprivation was reflected in my weigh in result. It might seem to be counter intuitive, because sleeping is identical with being inactive. But in reality, not having enough sleep can actually sabotage your weight loss journey. What I found out when I learned about BMR is…

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…
