Ok. Here goes.
To begin? Apologies, I know I said I would be back on shortly, and that was maybe 2 months ago, but I guess at the time I didn’t believe I would be without internet for two months! So apologies first of all to all my loyal followers, but most of all… sorry to my body. Why? I’ll tell you why, and it starts with 6 KILOGRAMS OF WEIGHT ON MY BODY WHY. Now it’s most likely a mixture of things as to why this has occurred, but I can start of by saying not having Tumblr there *as silly as this may sound* I didn’t start my day off and end it with going through inspirational blogs, healthy food ideas, great exercise tips and most of all great motivational blogs. I also didn’t have a bunch of loyal followers sending messages of inspiration that a could read as I pleased, they just sat in my inbox (L) and lastly I had lost my reason to write down what I ate everyday. Now this adds up, BIG TIME. And I am writing this post, ashamed, upset, crushed and with my low self esteem and binge eating disorder back and on full throttle. Fresh start?
Hungry for a change doc. A definite Must watch!

Anonymous asked: do you have any tips to help with overeating especially at dinner time??
Overeating at dinner, definitely a problem of mine, however I have come to realise this problem is at it’s worse when I have not consumed enough calories AND nutrients throughout the day. Calorie starving early in the day WILL catch up at some point, mainly at night and suddenly there will be an overwhelming need to fill the rest in, this is the same with nutrients though, you may have consumed TWICE your daily calorie requirements, however if they didn’t come from nutrient filled foods, your body/mind will be left still craving the nutrients.
If you are doing these and still left over eating, make sure you’re having your dinner AS dinner, not as something to do whilst watching TV, on the laptop, etc. always make sure you have it at the table each night, with no distractions and concentrate and enjoy your food. Otherwise if you’re constantly eating whilst watching TV, etc. You will crave food every time you sit down to watch, just out of habit. Reading or just keeping yourself busy after dinner, or even going to bed early gives you less chance to eat. Filling up on tea/hot drinks pre and post meals may halt any exess food cravings. Hope this helps and sorry for the rant!
It really does work!
Guilty of doing this!
HOW TO START EATING HEALTHY WHEN YOUR FAMILY DOESN’T SUPPORT YOU
It’s hard changing your lifestyle and diet when someone else is buying the groceries. For anyone who is living with stubborn parents or unhealthy housemates, this post is for you.
I get a bunch of questions daily about how to deal with parents who are not supportive of their teen’s dietary changes. Moms can be very hard headed when it comes to diet. Sometimes the topic of what ends up on the dinner table can get emotional and offensive. After all, she is the one who has been feeding you these past years – why all of a sudden are you rejecting her “love” and “care”?
For those of us that are Asian, telling your family that you will no longer eat white rice can be an extremely epic and awkward event. It is an Asian staple. You have rice at everyday. They will probably not take you seriously and then just tell you that you’re too skinny already and encourage you to eat more. In fact, they will most likely just start scooping you larger heaps of rice and filling your bowl for you. Oh, and don’ forget that they won’t let you leave the table til you finish every last grain of rice in your bowl either.
I’ve gone through numerous diet changes throughout the years – Pescatarian, Vegetarian, Dairy Free, Paleo…and it’s hard and very frustrating eating with people who are not very mindful of your dietary standpoint. In college, I did not eat red meat or poultry and every time I came home for Thanksgiving, Christmas Break, or Spring Break, my parents just could not fathom the fact that I could not eat what they were eating. My mom would PURPOSELY make ribs for dinner and be like “Oh, you can’t eat that? Haha, just have one, it’s ok!” My dad would actually make me feel bad and say “People have been eating meat for millions of years, you’re being unnatural.”
Then when I moved to the East Coast, I officially gave up white rice. I replaced it with veggies – one of the best and easily effective things I’ve done with my diet. Again, when I visited home for the h0lidays my parents would BERATE me for not eating rice.
“Oh you’re not eating rice again?”
“How can you just eat vegetables? That’s disgusting, I could never do that.”
“You’re being unhealthy by not eating grains.”
These comments made me feel so uncomfortable at the dinner table. And even though they are my parents, I found it disrespectful that they chose to not respect my dietary choices. If you are serious about making changes to what you’re eating, you really need a supportive environment. What the people around you say or do will have an impact on how successful you are. Here’s what you can do:
- Start buying your own groceries
- Start cooking for you and for your family – introduce them to your style of delicious clean eating
- Educate your family on why you’re doing what you’re doing – back it up with scientific research. Seriously. Most people shy away from attacking you if you know your stuff.
- Announce it (or just slip it in a conversation). Let your family know how you want to eat. They need to be aware of your healthy habits. This also holds you more accountable for your actions because you know there are others watching.
A really good trick in getting your mom to be on your side is to go grocery shopping with her and asking her how to pick the best fruit or choose a good vegetable. These are life skills you should learn anyway. You guys can have great conversation/bonding time and this is your chance to show her you respect her guidance while educating her on your new dietary needs. This makes her feel important and also sets the stage for a successful dinnertime experience.
If you are really SERIOUS about cutting out rice or going vegetarian but don’t know how to tell your family, just follow the steps above. I can assure you that if your family or housemates really care about you, they will respect your decision and actually help you do what you want to do. So don’t compromise, don’t settle. You’ve got this. It’s your body and your health. Fight for it.Do you struggle with this?
Here's to you.: Instant gratification is killing our generation -
The more I articles, research the health/diet industry along with seeing trends for the Gen Y and below, I am constantly confronted with and slightly disturbed by how much our need/desire for instant gratification of everything is putting us well behind our parents in all…
Who would’ve known?
