Diet is What You Eat

Fruits and vegetables

Diet, my way

Nowadays, many people struggle to lose weight. Old clothes no longer fit. Even a short distance walk makes one panting heavily. Obesity has become a worldwide problem, causing serious health issues such as heart disease, diabetes and so on.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to lose that extra few pounds and to keep the pounds off is another uphill battle. My target weight is 100-105 pounds since I’m only 5 feet and 2 inches tall. However, losing those twenty some pounds hasn’t been easy. After years of exploring, and experimenting, I finally succeed using my way, and I think it is the way that best suits me.

First, I cut the daily meals from three to two, eating only breakfast and lunch. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It gives me energy, helps my brain function better, and set the tone for my entire morning. Sadly, lots of people skip it. Some rather sleep more, and others simply have no time to spare in the morning. The breakfast doesn’t have to be big, a bowl of cereal and some wheat bread with butter or eggs are good enough. Ever since I stopped eating dinner, my appetite in the morning has been exceptionally good.

Lunch is also critical. I take it around 1:30 – 2:00 in the afternoon. It usually consists of a pint of white rice, vegetables, tofu, and some white meat (such as chicken or fish). For the top 10 picks of healthy green please refer to my article Healthy Living 1-Wonderful green leaves posted on Monday, May23rd.

Changing eating habit is not easy, and for some, skipping dinner all together may not be practical. For those who must eat at night, I suggest making the dinner as small as possible, with mostly vegetables. If you are still hungry at night, why not try some fresh fruits. I have been maintaining my target weight for several years now, and every day, I feel happier, healthier and lighter.


Final Words

Of course, watching what you eat is only a part of the game, exercise regularly is equally important to help you maintain your target weight. You don’t have to go to gym or find a trainer. Just one hour of powerwalk (about 1 mile) daily is good enough. To me, powerwalk means taking 2-3 steps per second (Yes, it is possible for many people). And doing some simple stretch in front of the TV at night is far better than being a couch potato. Don’t you agree?
