Anyways.. Not sure my taste bud has changed dramatically or it was my mind that is so used with healthy foods and stuff. My saliva was bursting when I watched Ina Garten cooked oatmeal with full cream milk, banana, raisins.. Topped with some maple syrup and some milk again.. Slurps..
Yeah what an 'odd' food 'lust' I have, of all foods.. oatmeal? Reeeeaaaaally? haha!
*saliva's bursting right now*
Again, I know when it comes to oat, people thought this is healthy and eat them alot everyday. Yeah, they are healthy in some parts but don't forget the calories too. One 'sad' fact about healthy food is, they aren't "calorie-free" ; in fact this Ina Garten's recipe I'm talking about right now is very high in calorie! That explains why some people still don't lose weight eventhough they claimed they are eating 'healthy' food.
I do have friends who thinks they are eating healthy food by simply mixing the oat with sweet condensed milk.
Sweet condensed milk - SUGAR. So yeah umm *faint*
One simple rule I applied in my life when it comes to losing weight is I will try to cut down my sugar and fat intake as possible as I can. I am not a qualified nutritionist nor dietitian but I am pretty much very specific in what I eat everyday.
I weigh my food and stuff everyday. Would check on the food labels and I don't mind staying in the groceries store for hours just to walk around and find things that could satisfy my taste bud in the healthiest way.
Call me a diet freak or what, but I am a person who tends to eat and binge like a crazy bitch who just got her ass out of a food-less prison. My besties know me very well when it comes to fooooood I could stay and eat for few hours and eventually feel so sad for what I've done to my own body. Self-sabotage.
I simply cannot control myself *the ugly truth*
I used to be so obsessed with healthy food and ignoring the calorie intake which is the most important thing you should consider when it comes to losing weight.
Eventually I gained weight and still thinking why why why? I am eating healthily, whyyyyyyyyyyyyyy when I was actually;
- Ate a pack of cashew nuts (high in fats) in a day
- A slice of salmon (packed with fats)
- Had lots of fruits (yeah natural sugar, but still sugar)
- Cooked my food with lots of olive oil
- Had non-sugar Chatime drinks with extra 'pearls'
I know, these are packed with healthy fats but they are still fats and..
Fats make us fat if we eat them excessively!
But now I know after doing a lot of readings, research, asking friends, attending nutrition course and all.
I'm like.. OH MY GOD! WHAT HAVE I DONE TO MYSELF?
That is why I need a 'food system' to manage myself; self-discipline and to control my insane big appetite. So that I can keep track of my calories intake everyday at the same time I know what I eat precisely!
And recently I've just gotten this too! :) One new achievement unlocked! Will blog about this soon.
Oh back to Ina Garten's recipe that I mentioned earlier. This recipe is probably good for my refeed or treat day but not for my daily intake, that's for sure.
And yeah, I'll ditch the maple syrup and substitute the milk with non-fat milk as well.
Now.. It's time to hit the sack, I have just finished my post-workout meal too and they tasted so DAMN GOOD *yums*
Post workout meal : Grilled tomatoes and bell peppers. Sumpah sedap. Low calorie too! Gosh I ate them like I was eating fries in front of my laptop just now while doing some work.
Mad happy, happy tummy! Good night! :)
