How Do You Do It Wrong?

How Do You Do It Wrong?

If you are a regular social media user you must be familiar with these “You’ve Been Peeling Banana The Wrong Way” sort of clickbait links. And then if just for the sake of it, you actually clicked one of those links, they would come up with the most impractically outrageous ways of doing things… from squishing lots of plum tomatoes between plates, or using used plastic bottles to suck egg yolks… One of those ‘kitchen hacks’ I hate the most…

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. 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 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…

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…

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…

Can You Be Fat And Fit?

Can You Be Fat And Fit?

I did mention about this when I talked about Body Positivity issue, and I think it is only fair now if I actually look into this a bit deeper so that I can give you a more balanced information. So, let’s just get on with this, shall we? So the question was… can you be fat and fit? In 2012 NHS published an article about the study carried out by researchers from the Karolinska Institute, Sweden, the University of Granada,…

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…
