A few years ago when I first came to Thailand for an extended period, the diet was not taken seriously, eating the naughty snacks and having fizzy drinks, it took me at least a month to shed any weight.
This trip is different, from day two (day one I had durian!) I took the diet very seriously and shed 6 kg in the first 6 days. Some of this could be water weight, nonetheless, I am using this as a positive booster.
I am sat here with my one vice, black coffee. Which according to some websites is a good thing and with other websites it is bad!
All I can say is everything in moderation (well sometimes!.)
I am pondering the life changing goal of a 25kg (well 20kg now!) weight loss. Taking extreme measures as to only eat what Noona at the gym cooks for me. No sweets, snacks, fizzy drinks or alcohol. For those who know me, know that this is not easy, especially when I walk into coffee shops and see an amazing selection of cakes. By the way, I have a sweet tooth!
Luckily, here in Thailand, when I do fancy something sweet I can get some pineapple or watermelon, it gets rid of my sweet craving. Here the fruit tastes like it should…..!!!
At the gym I get a good variety of fresh fish, meats and vegetables with rice which is the staple diet.
A lot of my eating habits need to change, for example, I am a very fast eater….the food would be piled into my mouth, head straight, unchewed into my stomach, where the poor stomach would have to do the hard work of processing it. By the time the stomach has done what it had, the second load of food appears, for my stomach, this is a never-ending story. Feeling sorry for me stomach?!
Also, snacking is a big no, easy to say whilst in Thailand, as the heat distinguishes the hunger.
This is all a mindset that needs to be changed for a long and healthy future…..
