I just don’t understand some of my friends my age. I find them very hard to relate to, especially when their belief about food intake and diet is completely different from mine.
You see… I don’t quite give a damn of what I eat and when I eat. I eat when I feel like it, and I eat when I feel hungry. Most of my ex-classmates in highschool are jealous of me. Why? Because I barely put on an extra gram since I left school despite of the way I enjoy my food… and my junkfood. I may be older. I may be married and have a child of my own, but I could still fit into my school uniform-something that not many still can.
Anyway, I was chatting with a friend… a close friend, actually, and I was telling her that I cannot live without nasi lemak, char koay teow, satay, roti canai and many more fattening local food.
She was aghast when I told her that, and she admitted to me that it has been more than a year since she had her plate of nasi lemak, char koay teow, roti canai and whatnot. She cannot believe it that I have been having them regularly without even feeling guilty. And she was prattling on and on about the calories, how unhealthy and fattening they are and bla bla bla! *ROLL EYES* (I don’t understand why someone can live in Malaysia and not enjoy the good food around us)
My friend told me that I should feel guilty for even eating those stuff. Duh… why would I feel guilty, anyway? I live in Malaysia. Those are somewhat staple food to me. If I don’t eat those regularly…what do you expect me to eat? You can’t expect me to to live on salad without dressing for lunch and dinner and disgusting bowl of oat for breakfast and wash it down with some dreadful looking protein shake, can you? You might as well shoot me in the head if you want to ask me to do that! It is something that I will not do.
Perhaps… I have grown very old and I couldn’t understand the ‘younger generation’ anymore. All they want to do is have an hourglass figure. But they forgot that just to control their diet without exercising will not do them any good. Skipping meals, especially breakfast just to loose weight is also not right, even if you take healthy stuff like oat and salad later on for lunch and dinner.
I am a firm believer that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and you cannot skip it. Go ahead and skip lunch, but you must take breakfast. And I also believe that it is okay to be skinny or fat, as long as you are healthy. No point looking good when you are not healthy, right? That’s just vain!
People always ask me… how can I stay skinny even though I don’t exactly watch what I eat. They wonder what my secret is. I tell you… none. I have no secret…. unless you call eating fried chicken at 3am in the morning and eating loads of stuff before I sleep is a secret to keep myself petite.
Cleffairy: Oh… don’t worry about me… I may not eat those supplements and health food to keep my ‘good’ plywood figure, but I do swim regularly… and perform my ‘cardiac’ exercise often to keep myself healthy inside. LMAO! Why not ask me instead… what is ‘cardiac exercise’? The cardiac exercise that I have been practicing for the past 8 years can burn loads of calories if you do it right. LOL.
ps: By all means… if you’re unhappy with the way you look… diet all you want, go and have the fats surgically removed. For what it’s worth, I don’t believe on going under the knife to make myself look good. Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.
