I've gained a lot of weight since my Aussie trip and I've been feeling a bit bloated these days. I'm actually thinking of taking up a gym membership but since yours truly is quite broke at the moment, I decided to just cut down on my intake of food.
Which did not work cause I'm such a big glutton. So I was surfing around and taking a look at all the types of diets. Detoxs? No money leh. I can't buy anything at the moment.
Then I stumbled onto this, Low Carb Diets which definitely makes sense. I eat a lot of carbs everyday, rice + potato dish + tofu + meat afterwhich followed by french fries or some other snacks. Since I don't exercise, all those carbs are converted to body fat!
What's Involved in Low Carb Diet?
A cut on all carbohydrate from the diet and increased protein and fat intake. Cut on things like pasta, bread, rice and alcohol, yet unlimited amounts of meat, cheese and butter are suggested to eat. That's why sometimes Low Carb Diets claim to be luxurious diets.
This sounds like a reasonable diet plan. I won't stop eating! I'll just start eating "smarter". Less carbs! Then I won't need to starve. HEH!
I was checking out the low carb recipes, and the recipes actually sounds quite good. Surprisingly! And apparently they have about 300 recipes?! o.O it's a pity i can't cook but i won't mind if others cook for me! heh!
There's actually low carb shepherd pies (hehehe, xt dearie, me want!), low carb chicken balsamic vinegar sauce (which reminds me, i need to buy some balsamic vinegar) and low carb asian crock pot steak! (steak! <3)
I'm gonna try this low carb approach these few weeks. Hopefully school and work would have quieten down soon and I'll have some free time (and hopefully some money then) and I'll be able to go to the gym (or yoga. I haven't decided!)
Heh, anyone wants to join me for that gym or yoga membership? 😀
