The wonders of social media landed me an opportunity to be interviewed by Rage, The Star, a local newspaper. In the article, I talked about how I plan my meals using a food plan and the abundance of resources online to help us do that. Here’s is my updated food plan for the rest of the month:
I suppose I need to add a disclaimer to this too. I made the plan for myself according to my lifestyle: freelance, lots of time sitting down and generally not too active. That’s why I do not require as much calories consumption as say, a construction worker who generally spends a lot of time outdoors putting in hard labour. Or a dance instructor. I’d also like to still have some fun so I would not totally restrict or deprive myself of a certain food item. Therefore, you’ll see me eating a piece of cake at a party, or sample that burger (without the bun if possible) a friend has made for me. And once in a while, a pasta dish will appear on the dinner table.
Bottom line is, that this is about a lifestyle change and not a ‘weight loss’ diet. However, swapping over to healthier choices does help you lose a few unwanted pounds, and that is not a bad thing at all.
By the way, if you are interested, I’ll show you the exercise video I’ve been using recently. Check out her other exercise videos too. Jun Dayeon is a 45 year old Korean lady who has become a fitness instructor who has managed to lose 20kg through her diet and exercise regime. While I’m not aiming to lose 20kg, this particular video is fun, easy and works the whole body.
So what do you think about D.I.Y Health and Fitness? Are there any rules you follow? Are there websites that your refer to religiously for this purpose?
