Today I'll be talking about my diet - not that I am on one that is supposed to help me lose weight.
Quite a number of girls have either tweeted/emailed me or left comments asking me how I maintain my weight/lost weight/how much do I eat a day etc..
Honestly speaking, there is NO secret and I can eat quite a lot but there is a bit of a story behind it.
I believe I've talked about how I've lost weight before, you can read it HERE : http://www.rchlwngx.com/2013/01/live-well.html
This was me 3 years ago, BTW. Ugh....... I feel so bad for myself.
At that time, I was super desperate to lose weight and I was at my all time lowest of 35kg or so?
I was eating soooo little a day. 1 meal a day.
I was so sad. Nothing could fit me. My waist was 21.5". I'm not even kidding.
I wanted to eat so much but I never let myself cos I was so afraid of being fat.
As mentioned in the previous post on this topic, with the help and support of my family, BF and friends, I started learning to live well, to love myself and to eat properly again..
I went back to 3 meals a day. FULLLLL MEALS. Suddenly. And that's when my constipation problems started, my disgestive organs got lazy cos I didn't feed it and it just.... got so bad, I went 1 week without pooping before.... can you imagine?!??!?! BUT I have also blogged about what I did to help myself HERE : http://www.rchlwngx.com/2013/06/photoshoot-lunch-follow-up-to-my-sick.html
And now, my current diet is 3 meals a day!
I ALWAYS HAVE BREAKFAST. Breakfast is always kaya toast with a big cup of iced milo + a banana/apple or whatever fruit is available in my kitchen. I think it's important to have a good breakfast everyday.
Lunch and dinner varies but I often document whatever I eat on my twitter @rchlwngx / instagram @rchlwngxx so you can check it out there.
Usually I eat a heavier lunch and a lighter dinner because by the time I go home I am very tired and just wanna eat whatever I have to eat. Unless my dad buys back ultra yummy food. And then I go crazy.
I like spicy food, I like mee hoon kueh, popiah... zichar... Korean BBQ... I eat lotsa things actually hehehee.
I guess it helps I don't really like to eat rice so I eat little bit of it and loads of dishes instead, preferring porridge (teochew porridge!!!!) and noodles/bread. But 1 important thing, I think, is that I also eat LOADS of veggie now. I am a huge veggie monster and my fav is spinach+doumiao! I try to have salads but most of the time it is so hard to find yummy salads in SG.
No suppers at all cos you would be full from the 3 meals a day and I usually have dinner early about 6+, before 8 definitely, which I think helps.
I also have fruit juice everyday, and fruits. And water with a slice of lemon in it instead of normal water cos I like the taste of it :D
I don't know if whatever I have mentioned in my current diet has helped in maintaining my weight, but I have been at a pretty healthy 39+kg. And 40+kg on bloated days or days when I binge with CY. My waist is now a 23.5" which is much healthier! And yes, I poop everyday, so no weight is stored ^^
Well. Like every other girl out there I have days when I feel fat too and like I shouldn't eat for a week LOL. And I'm definitely not as skinny as I used to be. But I am much happier and I guess it kinda makes me look better? Cos I'm happy? A lot of my friends have mentioned that I look better now cos I have weight on my bones and I look more healthy/radiant/happy!
1 thing I really gotta work on is EXERCISING. I am so lazy. But I will go do something... soon... I guess.... :/
To all the other girls who have asked me about how I maintain my weight, I hope this helps??
I think the most important thing at the end of the day is that you are healthy and happy. You will look your best when you are these 2 things. And I think most dudes would agree that bones aren't exactly the most attractive look on a girl!
