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 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…

What Is Intermittent Fasting?

What Is Intermittent Fasting?

Intermittent fasting has been very popular for a very long time now. I first heard about it around six or seven years ago when one of Indonesian celebrity adopt this diet and transformed himself from a chubby magician, into a buff mentalist. Wasn’t really interested because the way he promoted it as his own hadn’t been backed up with science. Until a couple of years ago, when I actually heard about the real intermittent fasting. This time it was not…

Cheating Sundays?

Cheating Sundays?

Just a couple of weeks a go I realised that people used their weekends as their cheat days. It is interesting for me, because Sunday has a dark food history as the day when people actually cheat. Weird right? Rumour has it that in the end of 1800’s there’s such a law in the US which prohibit the sales of soda water on Sundays because it is a vice. Ice cream soda, which was at that time best sellers were…

Weigh In Wednesday (week 2)

Weigh In Wednesday (week 2)

Ugh… I woke up feeling incredibly bloated, and I am not feeling very well. I checked my Clue, and it is definitely not a very good time to do a weigh in. However, for the sake of consistency, let’s just pretend that menstrual cycle have nothing to do with it. So… This week has been quite testing because it was my first week doing this while working. Granted it is a part time job, but I am not sure how…

The Importance of Keeping A Food Journal

The Importance of Keeping A Food Journal

I could not believe that I had not think about this way earlier than I actually did. If I think about it, food journal makes a complete sense. How did I know that I wasn’t over eating if I did not even remember what I ate that day. As eating has become an integral part in our life, it is so easy to just do it without thinking. When you sit down on a coffee shop, and there’s a complimentary…

Now First Thing First

Now First Thing First

A lot of people struggle with weight loss because they guesstimate everything. It is literally impossible to know how to lose weight if you don’t really know how you weigh. Sounds like a common sense, right? But surprisingly, a lot of people don’t even own a proper bathroom scale. My husband never had a scale until I insisted on buying it for us, and that’s when he realised that he was way heavier than he thought he was. That’s exactly…

It Needs To Start Somehow

It Needs To Start Somehow

I think it is better for me if I start it with a story. Many years ago, roughly around 2015 I decided that I needed to lose some weight. I was not unhealthily overweight — in fact I was just on the top border of my normal BMI (Body Mass Index), but I was not happy with the way I was and how I had let myself go. Like many people said over and over again, BMI could mean nothing…
