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…

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…

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…

Talking About Addiction

Talking About Addiction

After a couple of days of thinking about this, I have decided to give it a go, and talk about it. I am not sure yet how this is going to help me or anyone else, but probably someone can take an advantage of this particular post. Like I said last time, I don’t get addicted easily. I used to smoke a lot, even chain smoke at some point, but quitting smoking was a breeze for me. My husband, on…

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,…
