About Me

THE WEIGHT GAIN

Growing up, I was a skinny child and didn’t eat much. During my secondary school period, my love for food, especially rice grew. I had an accident that got me bedridden for 8 weeks. I gained weight and didn’t consider doing anything about it. I’m not blaming the accident; the blame is on my inactivity and unhealthy love for carbohydrate (rice). My lack of discipline and change got me to a whooping 308lbs (140kg) in 2010.

    THE CHANGE

    It was my mom’s constant talks and crying that made me want to try. She will cry at night, praying that I change. After one fateful morning cry routine, I decided to give it a try.

    THE LIFESTYLE

    I started with an unrealistic meal plan. After a month, I loss 8kg, my pants were loose and I was a dress size down. It was time to move back to school. Back to environments filled with junks and poor food decisions. It was decision time, few minutes’ yummy food or a healthier me? Well since I’m writing this, I made the right choice. But to succeed I needed a reasonable and sustainable strategy. I needed to develop a healthy relationship with food and incorporate exercise if I must succeed; I researched, read blogs and tried out new things. I even took up a course in personal health and fitness. After 3 months, I knew exactly how to lose the fat. Eating controlled portioned healthy food and staying active. I bought skipping rope, a bench and sets of dumbbell and leg weight. I exercised, ate right and kept moving. I never looked back, it wasn’t easy but it was worth it. I had low months, days I felt I wasn’t seeing results but I kept moving.

    THE REWARD

    Two years and eight months and I’m 75kg lighter. I can run, exercise with so much energy. I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been. Over time I’ve developed a healthier relationship with food. Health and fitness is now a passion and I’ve turned it into a business. Helping people lose weight, educate them on food and also running a healthy bakery.

    PLANT BASE JOURNEY

    What is a Plant-based Lifestyle?
    A plant-based lifestyle excludes eating or using animal products; foods avoided include meat, chicken, fish, dairy, and eggs. There are plenty of substitutions for these ingredients that are highly nutritious such as beans, lentils, nuts, seeds, soy products such as tofu, and plant-based dairy alternatives such as soy/almond/rice milks or yogurts.

     

    WHY PLANT-BASED?

    I tried vegan lifestyle 2019 for 100 days, I mentioned it to a vegan friend that i wanted to try it out and she encouraged me. The 100 days vegan challenge was new experience for me. I went full plant base October 2019 and its been amazing.

    ADVISE ON GOING PLANT BASE OR VEGETARIAN.

    If you’re considering a transition to a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, my advice would be to go at your own pace. Some prefer to make the transition overnight, while others like to slowly transition away from eating and using animal products. There is no “right way” – only the way that works best for you.

    If you choose to take it slowly, start with the easiest items to eliminate first. For some it’s meat, for others it’s milk. When eliminating, try experimenting with it’s plant-based alternative such as lentils, textured vegetable protein, or soy milk/yogurt. And if you “slip up” by having it again after eliminating it – don’t worry! Start back up where you left off
