I am making this post to help a few friends who asked about how did I trim down. Hopefully, it will also help some of you ladies who are wanting to drop a little more weight.
My Advice: Eat everything in the plate expect for 1 & 1/2 part of whole skinless hainanese chicken legs.
Two months ago, I noticed that it became hard for me to fit in my favorite skinny jeans and I had bulges. Blame my cravings because I've been ignoring my diet plan for a while. So, I thought about going back to my old eating habit* after seeing my waistline. You know, I am not worried about shopping for a bigger size of jeans. I only need to be watchful in order to avoid health problems in the future.
HERE IS A SAMPLE OF MY DAILY DIET:
Breakfast= 1 cup rolled oats + 1 glass of fresh milk
Morning Snack= 2 pcs cookies + water
Lunch= 1 cup of rice + 1 serving of meat/ fish + unlimited vegetable + 1 serving of fruit
Afternoon Snack= 1 slice of white bread with 1 tbsp peanut butter + water
Dinner= 1 cup of rice + 1 serving of meat/ fish + unlimited vegetable + a small portion of dessert
Before Bedtime Snack (optional)= 1 glass of fresh milk or 2 pcs biscuits and water
Feel free to personalize this diet plan in depending on your goal. Remember, you may only reduce the amount of carbohydrates. From one cup of rice, you can reduce to a half. Instead of white bread, eat some kind of a wheat bread. Don't increase the meat and fish servings or the dessert portion. And, when I say unlimited vegetables, it means you can eat any vegetables you like esp. the green and leafy ones. They are the best to a healthy diet. Also, drink plenty of water to keep yourself properly hydrated and do some exercise for at least 20 minutes everyday.
I believe dieting shouldn't feel like food deprivation or some sort of sacrifice. You can still eat your favorite cake or enjoy a soda, but please take everything in small portions. You can do your diet from Monday to Friday. Just leave Saturdays and Sundays as your cheat days. Happy dieting!
*This is my personal diet routine. It is still best to see a doctor or dietician if you want to make a healthy diet plan for yourself.
