    why avoid bread? brown bread is relatively low-cal and pretty healthy i thought?

    and instead of all the "don'ts" how about some "do's"

    Oh no! By no means am I saying don't eat carbs!! They are an essential macronutrient needed for energy! You've just go to eat the right carbs and at the right times.

    In my heart, in my head, it's so clear now,
    Hold my hand you've got nothing to fear now,
    I was lost and you've rescued me some how-.
    I'm alive, I'm in love you complete me,
    And I've never been here before.
    Now I see, what love means.

    as i've already said i don't think i'm extremely fat and if i'm insulting anyone then it's unintentional. it doesn't matter what size clothing i am, i'm still not happy with the size of my body and that's why i'd like to be smaller.

    you could always start eating one meal a day and imagine that all food are poison.. my friend tried that scheme, and she dropped her weight to 29kg or less and went to hospital.
    GOOD LUCK

    Ok at home, get rid of the junk food. That way you don't have any junk to snack on when you're at home. When you're out, go for the healthy foods.

    i know i'm not extremely fat or anything so i don't mean to insult anyone that's bigger than me. but i would like to be thinner especially since i'm asian and all other asians are skinny shits (as my parents love to remind me).
    I know what you mean when you're constantly surrounded by Asians that are skinny. But most of the Asian girls look the same anyway. Wouldn't you rather be healthy then be really skinny and not eating correctly?

    I don't think you need to loose weight. Have you considered that maybe you need to do toning exercises instead?

    It's not bad eating junk food every now and then so long as it's not constantly.

For example, cottage cheese is a casein protein, so is digested more slowly andis thus optimal for before bed.
    Are you sure about that? Because when you're sleeping, your body functions shut down/slow down. That why it's not recommended to eat before going to bed.

    Anyway, wouldn't you feel bloated if you ate before going to be? When i say this, I mean eating within 1 hr of going to bed

    exactly what she said.

    you are by no means, fat, chubby or should even feel pressured to lose weight.

    a couple of years back, i was 160cm and weighed 55kg and my doctor told me I needed to lose weight so that I weighed under 50kg. fast forward to now, i dont see the same doctor anymore and told my current GP about this incident and he said my old doctor was deluded and had no right to give me misleading advice like that, especially at the tender age where you cared about what your peers think of your appearance.
    My current doctor is right too, I'm now in uni and i'm constantly dieting dangerously, calorie counting, weighing myself all the time and getting depressed when i don't reach a goal and it gets me NOWHERE.

    you say you're eating junk food all the time, so fuck worrying about your weight and losing weight so much, you'll just end up more fat and unhappy.
    for now, just worry about eating healthily and exercising and the weight'll come off easily.

    You sure he/she was a doc?
    Was he/she a he/she?
    I get my daily paper, look at the obituaries page and if I'm not there I carry on as usual...

    That sounds so strange for a doc to say. Youre easily in a healthy weight bracket.

    Another idea would be to snack on various mixtures of dried fruits, nuts and seeds rather than on junk food.
    Perhaps not... 4 dried fruits is about the equivalent of one apple... it wouldn't be too hard to knock down about 15 or so would it? That's like eating 4 apples, do you see yourself doing that?

    hmm she didn't say she thinks she's fat just that she's not that happy with her body and thats normal enough, even light weighted girls have flabby bits that they want to get rid of and theres nothing wrong with that :P



    and to Catwalk, i dont know think 5-6kg in 4 weeks is realistic for you! because you're pretty skinny already and theres only so much you can lose so may be aim lower??

    Yeah, I thought so too. He didn't even give me a proper medical reason as to why I should lose weight. He just said something along the lines of "You'll look better if you lost some weight..." etc. I think it's because he was an asian doctor and I'm asian and the whole stigma of all Asians being skinny and small.

    haha this was a couple of years ago, since then, i'm a little chubbier and could stand to lose some pounds.

    i was just reassuring her that she doesn't need to/feel pressured to lose weight. i know how it feels not to be happy with yourself, i can't even remember in the last 7yrs, the last time i was happy with myself.
    most girls have "flabby bits" even those who weigh under 50kgs! but if those girls are already light in weight, it'd be alot better for them to do toning exercises rather than to lose weight.

    if you really want to lose actual "fat", then keep in mind what everyone has said but also exercise off more calories than you consume. :uhhuh: thats my two cents.
    nothing was beautiful and everything hurt

    you shouldnt be concerned about your actual weight. you should look at your fat to weight ratio. do weights, theyre good for chicks.
