You Are 'How' You Eat

Hello, my sweet ninja babies! :D

Ok, before you say something like "where on earth have you been, Sushee?!"... :D Will  ya'll spare some time to take a look at me and say...  *\(*,*)/*

There yah go! Thank youuuuu! :)

I just turned 26! 
Yay to God's generosity for giving me such sweet number.. :D
And since it's my birthday month, and many of you were asking me on how I maintain my 'figure' after giving  birth(yep, I have a 1 year old Nathan), I think it's time to share my thoughts on how you can motivate yourself with regards with eating habits.

You Are 'How' You Eat

Modern life is all about multi-tasking and in order to keep pace with our hectic schedules we expect
our every whim to be speedily satisfied. Patience may indeed be a virtue and that’s all well and good
– if you’ve got the time for it. Most of us, however, would beg to differ and expect results without
having to wait for them.

Gone are the days of healthy eating and exercise as a means for weight loss. Slowly and surely this

has been replaced by liposuction, tummy tucks and diet pills. In fact, an entire industry has sprung
up around trying to keep you out of plus size swimwear.

Yet, just because it’s popular doesn’t mean it’s the right decision. Plus size swimwear is a great
option for those with a fuller figure and can help provide the confidence and self-appreciation that
no amount of cosmetic surgery can ever achieve.


We all need a little support when it comes to being happy with our appearance and whether this
means changing the contents of our wardrobe or embracing a new diet plan to reveal the slimmer
figure within will be based on your own personal choice.

Ultimately, the key to success doesn't lie with the specific diet or option which you choose to follow
but rather with how you reconcile it with your lifestyle. We all know that we are what we eat, but
not all of us are aware that we are also ‘how’ we eat.

Changing Behaviors

Try being mindful of what and how you’re eating. A study revealed that when asked to count the
number of bites of food taken, those who were asked to keep track lost more weight than those
who were asked to eat normally – despite the same calorific intake. By being aware of the amount
of food you’re eating, you’re likely to feel fuller more quickly and be aware of your body’s natural
satiety cues.

Breakfasting like a king would indeed appear to be the best start to the day. Research has
corroborated that a bigger breakfast is less likely to see you reaching for the biscuit barrel later on
in the day and you’re more likely to stick to your daily calorie regimen.

Sleep can sometimes be the
best medicine too. The less sleep you have, the more likely you are to succumb to sugary snacks and
the instant burst of energy they supply, so make sure you are well rested to keep those love handles
at bay.

Remember that sexy and healthy rhymes. So it's very important to not just look good, but make yourself always feel good!
Summer is coming too soon here in PI.
