Lose weight fast and stay slim! (From low carb to moderate carb.)

Friday, August 17, 2018

My lunch on 13 Oct 18.

1. Popcorn chicken.
("FarmPride" brand 

by SATS, of course.)
2. Chopped spinach.

3. Egg.
4. Extra virgin coconut oil 
(1 tbs).

Microwave for 4 minutes at 800 watts.

Then, add and mix well:
5. Extra virgin olive oil
(2 tbs).

6. Black pepper.
7. Turmeric powder.

I am back from a short holiday and, as expected it was so difficult to eat right.

It was terrible and it was good at the same time, if you know what I mean.

Now that I am back home, it is back to eating right.

Beautiful sunset.
It has been a while since I blogged about food.

As promised before I went on holiday, here is a blog on food.

Regular readers know that I went on a low carbohydrate, high fat diet many moons ago.

I shared it almost a year ago as the secret to my successful weight loss.

Gain will outweigh the loss.

I had to present my passport on two occasions during my vacation.

When I presented my passport the first time, I was asked,

"Did you go on a diet?"

When I came back, I had to present my passport again.

After looking at my passport photo and at me a few times,

"You are much thinner!"

Over many months, from 78 kgs, I am now 64 kgs in weight.

Losing weight is 80% diet and 20% physical activity. 

I became a firm believer after I saw the results.

After reaching my ideal weight, I am no longer on a low carb diet but a moderate carb diet and for quite a while by now.

I have always liked bread but was avoiding it.

No longer.

Having read up on diets and nutrition, I am familiar with the arguments against eating bread but I did miss eating bread.

A moderate intake should be fine lah.

It is just like char kway teow and chye tao kway.

Right or not?

You disagree?

You are probably not a Singaporean.

Anyway, I like French toast but I decided to try doing something different.

I scrambled an egg in extra virgin cocounut oil before dunking a slice of Gardenia bread in it.

Must be Gardenia bread, of course.

Powdered with black pepper and a sprinkling of garlic salt.

1 minute in the microwave at 800W and voila!

A 20 (maybe 30) cents breakfast. 

Oh, so good! 

Yum, yum!

Low carb doesn't mean no carb.

It is important to have some good quality carb in our diet.

After achieving the desired weight, it is a good idea to move to a moderate carb diet.

Low carb is not fun. ;)
