And with every Daylight savings, I am just a little bit tired! But I am back again this week with another scoop on my "Asian American Diet". About 4 years ago I drastically changed my diet. I stopped eating fast food and generally avoided things like trans-fat, high fructose corn syrup, MSG.. I look at the ingredients list and if anything is funky then I'm not eating it. Most of the time I cook my food so it isn't a problem. ^.^;;;
One of the immediate changes you'll notice when you eliminate junk from your diet is a more radiant complexion. This is one of the primary motivating factors for me. Of course, I also care about losing 'weight' or 'fat', but when you're eating healthy you definitely look healthy, too.
The common reaction from people is "How does it not drive you nuts?". Some people will attribute sacrifice to relativity. If people around you eat unhealthy food then you're more likely to eat it or feel bad about not eating it. This can be true, but if you like what a healthy lifestyle does for you, the benefits will outweigh the "sacrifice". Over time, it will feel unnatural to do otherwise.
Like the words of Raoul Silva from Skyfall, "Now they will only eat rat. You have changed their nature."
Well, in this case, now you will only eat healthy. ^_^
Everything pictured is allowed in my diet, so I'm actually not sacrificing that much. The main thing is to avoid bad carbs (things with high glycemic index: a list to help you www.livestrong.com/article/279…
and fat is okay in moderation. Staying active and positive is a must.
What are changes you've made to your diet [if any]? What prompted these changes?
