Eating Light

lunch1.jpg

I have been trying to eat light the past couple of days, making sure I can get up from the table and walk after I eat. This time i was pretty good, some chicken, corn, and taboula. It was a strange combination but it really was good. I especially enjoyed the corn but when you fresh corn you spend the rest of the day cleaning your teeth. This type of lunch seemed healthier then what I have usually, now I have to start going to the gym again.

  1. mashalla 4 corns ;p~

    I love taboula *drool*

  2. take this advice if u want to feel light after a meal! don’t drink before and after

    the gym!! i’m thinking of joining again too but :/

  3. Vampire actually no. It’s advised that you drink a cup of water half an hour before every meal. It fills you up so you wont eat much and it reduces hunger a little =) The drinking w/ food though is right- it produces a karsha =P But they’re cuddly n cute hehe ..

  4. The chicken looks gewwwwd :)

    The thing with having it set in your mind that you can ONLY work out in a gym is that it makes you feel like anything less would be not worth it. It’s better to start with what you actually can commit to given your time constraints and just go walk on any nearby mamsha or even around your neighbourhood so you don’t waste too much time on traffic and parking. You can challenge yourself by gradually walking more and more laps per hour. And if you need to do weight lifting they sell dumbells at Sultan Center really cheaply too so you can just keep those at home. It just makes working out a lot more convenient when you can do it closer to home and if it’s convenient you’re more likely to stick to it.

  5. Go with Missy’s advice, I used that method too and it worked. Another thing that I found suppress hunger is eating a salad (I love tuna salads with 1000 Islands dressing) before a meal…it works beautifully. And I do remember you were keeping an online journal about your gym progress like months ago. If you started to go to the gym again, bring that journal back, it was a source of motivation for many people based on the comments :)

  11. Missy-The-Original: Bas a few days ago I heard on the radio that u should not drink a lot water before a meal cuz it washes away the gastric juices (or something!) from your stomach, and these r important for digestion.
