[AD] Eat Disciplines
There are countless (i repeat: countless) articles in almost every magazine on the topic “Healthy Diet“. i’ve read and tried many of those advises since i was a teenager. Some work, some don’t. After many years of experiences and endless effort in maintaining a healthy diet, i am proud to share with you a summary of my diet bible. Here are 3 Ways (to start) and 3 Tips (to last):
Top 3 Ways
1. Understand what’s Good / Bad for your Body.
Practice to be more aware of the nutrition food can offer. When looking at a menu, picture the plate and the things that come with it before shouting “Order!“. i promise there is most likely going to be a battle between What You Wish To Eat versus What You Know You Should Eat. For example:
Juicy Beef Burger with Chips VS Grilled Chicken Fillet with Asparagus
Creamy Carbonara with Crispy Bacon VS Green Salad with Salmon
Nasi Lemak Panas Tambah Telur VS Tosai Kosong dan Ayam Tandoori
Moist Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream VS yogurt and assorted nuts
Caramel Hazelnut Latte with Cream VS Chamomile Tea
i know what you’re thinking! But remember: It’s all about taking control and eating to feel good after. It is okay to eat greasy food once in a while, but you don’t want to feel fat and bloated after every meal… because that’s not sexc, people!
2. Set a Goal and Work towards It.
Stick your favorite half-naked shot of your hottest idol on your fridge or full-length mirror. Make a rational plan to get that bod and work towards it step by step. Make sure you apply it to your everyday life and ask no questions i.e “Should i eat this packet of chips? Just… a little bit?“. Stick to your original plan and JUST DO IT.
3. Be Disciplined.
Please, do yourself a favor. Advise #3, is THE KEY to success especially in this matter. Period.
Top 3 Tips
1. Live by:
Here is a guideline on how to maintain a good diet plan (my way):
Breakfast: Cereal with low fat milk + a choice of Fruit of the Day.
Tip: Buy a variety of cereals and fruits so you can swap in between without getting bored of eating the same thing every morning. And of course, i mean a medium serving of cereal; not half a box per morning.
Lunch: Sandwich + Salad
Tip: If you’re starting to feel hungry a couple of hours later, eat a banana.
Dinner: Grilled white meat + Vegetable(s) of the Day
Tip: Any white meat will do as long as it is not fried! Do try to have at least one serving of veg in your meal. If you need carbs, eat only half of what you’re served. You shouldn’t be eating more than 1 bowl of rice a day.
2. (Seriously) Cut down on Oily food.
Almost everything tastes nicer FRIED. Think: Deep Fried Soft-Shell Crabs VS Boiled Crabs. It’s a fact almost nobody can deny, but that doesn’t mean we have to choose the first option always. Try to CUT down on oily food and make this a daily routine (until you achieve your dream bod). By then, it will naturally become a habit instead. 😉
3. Snack Wisely
i personally always crave for snack / desert after every meal. Fortunately for me, it is a matter of continuing the munch and not too much of what it is. Therefor, i always opt for yogurt, a handful of (baked) nuts, edamame, sliced fruits, or when i have the ‘sweet tooth attack’, i spoil myself to a small serving of ice cream / half a bar of chocolate.
i hope this healthy ‘manifesto’ will be able to guide, support, and encourage you to eat healthier everyday. Start today, not tomorrow. There is no fat people in this world, only lazy people. 😛 For more fun health tips on eating habits and healthy living, tune in to 1 Sihat Malaysia hosted by Fahrin Ahmad; which also features stories from local celebrities, or visit http://gayahidupsihat.my/ to start unleashing that sexc body within you.
