Weight : Gain n Loss


When our boss said that he wanted to take us out for lunch yesterday, I suggested we go to this Minang's (or was it Padang's???) restaurant in KL b'cos another staff had just mentioned that she liked it when we went there d last time..hehehe..


mmmm....




mmmmm....





and this was the main reason I "dared" to suggest to my boss of where to have our lunch..hahaha...


(my fav, avocado juice)


I tried making it at home once but I learned then that I had to "master" d skill of choosing the ripe/good avocados first...and till now I have yet to drink the yummy homemade one...hehehe...


haaa...now I realised why....was upset earlier this morning after I weighed myself and found that I hadn't make any progress on my diet...no wonder that so far no one around me commented that I look slimmer...ha ha ha...

Looking at websites for tips...

Quick Weight Loss Tips #3 - Drink up.

“If people want to keep their nutrients in balance, they need to drink plenty of plain, unflavored water every day,” says Judy Dodd, R.D., past president of the American Dietetic Association. Water not only acts as a solvent for many vitamins and minerals but also is responsible for carrying nutrients into and wastes out of cells, so the body functions properly. As a rule of thumb, you should drink a half-ounce of water for every pound of body weight daily, unless you’re very active, in which case you should increase your water intake to two-thirds of an ounce per pound of body weight daily. So if you weigh 100 pounds, you should drink 50 ounces of water a day as a minimum

Drink Water!

Did you know that about 75% of the human body is composed of water? And did you know that if you ask most people what they would like to drink water would be on a last choice? Because your body is composed of about 75% of water that means that it needs water to function optimally. This is one of the easiest tips to implement yet most people neglect it. If you just start drinking more water every day it will go a long way in speeding up you fat loss. Researchers in Germany have found that people who drank water had an increase in the amount of calories they brunt per day.

How much water should I drink?

I suggest that you start with I glass a day and then increase at your own pace until you reach ten glasses per day. Once you have achieved ten glasses per day I recommend you follow Dr. Batmanghelidj, MD water consumption recommendations: Determine your body weight in pounds, divide it by two and drink that many in ounces of water each day. For example, a 200lbs person would need to drink 100 ounces of water each day.
