Confronting Calories

Have you ever had to do a calorie count? I started doing that a few days ago and it is hard. Instead of finding ways to eat healthy, I try to find mislabeled and misleading products on the app.

I downed half a tub of ice cream yesterday and managed to find the product added by someone where they… ahem… forgot to add sugar. Yay! I met my goal.

In all seriousness though, when you are confronted with the reality, you tend to either face it head on, or ignore it completely. And it’s easy to ignore. Somehow I felt guilty all day. But then I reminded myself how good the taste was and I felt free again.

I think the most difficult part is to follow through. A day missed, and you are back on the bandwagon of unhealthy diet. Hopefully this wasn’t one of those days.

I might choose to update my progress on the blog every now and again just to keep myself accountable. Until then, sugar free coke zero will be my best friend… Kidding! I was thinking red bull!


food for thought

it just so happens that
this feeling inside me
is eating me away

getting stronger everyday
it behooves me to submit
to the hunger pangs

search for inner peace
in pieces of chicken butter masala
or prawns well made

forgetting the world for a bite
or for getting cheat meal on diet
pbj. enough said

i would travel far and wide
if a hotel serves best side
and fresh eggs laid

yes, i live to eat. that’s cause
i have a life. un robot like. what’s
the point in being hungry and dead
