{Eating in moderation&Tips for eating out}

Hope I didn't keep y'all waiting for too long for this post!
Been busy with school (project submissions and exams) lately. 
Will be sharing bout what's my diet like.
how I eat in moderation
&some tips to making healthier choices. 

So what exactly is eating in "moderation"?
To me, 
It's about the quantity & frequency at which you eat certain kind of foods.
Here are some examples on how I eat certain things in moderation:

1. Fast Food

Lucky for me, 
Fast food is something that I can do without. 
One of the reasons why fast food can be "addictive" 
is cause they are high sodium content. 
You will find that you wouldn't have cravings for it/ 
wanna eat fast food if you don't eat them for a certain amount of time. 
I don't really eat fast food often
& most probably eat in once/twice in 3months. 

2. Desserts



Wouldn't deny that I have a sweet tooth. 
I love cakes, chocolates & ice cream. 
Remember how the quantity & frequency is important?
I don't restrict myself from eating them but I do watch the amount 
&frequency of which I'm consuming them.
Best tip for desserts?
Share them! hahah Sharing of calories = double the happiness :p
This means that I usually share a slice of cake/ice cream/chocolates with someone.
I don't polish off the entire thing on my own. 
I also don't eat them on a daily basis.
Probably thrice a week heh

Another example would be to eat only 1/3 or 1/2 the chocolate bar or
 one or 1/2 a scoop of ice cream.
DONT BE GREEDY! hahah  

3. Fried Food

We all know that fried food is unhealthy
& most probably yummy too. 
I do love my share of fried food 
but it's def not just unhealthy,
it's also really bad for the skin. 
I allow myself to eat deep fried food once a week heh

4. Bubble Tea

Not too sure bout the European countries but bubble tea is super popular here. 
I looooove Ovaltine from Koi&
Winter melon milk tea from Share Tea.
Even though I have a sweet tooth,
I'm really not a fan of super sweet things. 
Feels very "overloaded" if you know what I mean. 
My trick to drinking bubble tea is to drink them with 0% sugar.
They are sweet enough without the added sugar guys... hahah
I drink max 3 cups of bubble tea/week. 



That being said,
Here are some of the tips for when you're eating out/ making healthier choices
&more on what my diet's like:

1. Ask for your salad sauce to be "on the side"


Salad dressing can be really unhealthy and high in calories. 
An example would be the thousand island sauce. 
Ask for your salad dressing to be on the side instead of having them pour in the sauce for you. 
That way, 
you can moderate the amount of dressing you are consuming.
You may realise that you actually don't need that much in your salad. 

2. Snacking on healthier options

I'm literally forever hungry
I basically eat every hour (with 3 large meals included) hahah
I guess the harder you workout 
&more muscle mass you have, 
the higher your metabolism will be.
I always have to have food in my bag
cause it can get pretty hard to look for healthy snacks when you're out.
It's esp hard when I needa snack healthy when I'm cutting/
preparing for upcoming shoots.

Here are some of my all-time fav snacks when I'm cutting/ prepping for shoots:

Nuts (almonds/walnuts),
Muscle Pham combat crunch bar,
Fruits w oats & plain greek yoghurt,

Coconut water, 

&P28 Peanut Butter.

I grow up in a family that loves fruits. 
You will always be able to find fruits at my place. 
It's def my go-to for snacks. 
What's not to love bout fruits?
They are natural & sweeeeet :))
Have y'all tried Zespri's Red kiwi before?

***My diet for when I'm cutting is pretty simple. 
I cut out fried food, junk food & bubble tea for 2-3weeks before the shoot. 
I also try to limit myself from consuming too many fruits
as they are high in simple sugar. 
haha I don't count marcos even when I'm cutting.

Here are some of my fav bars that I snack on when I'm not cutting:


Be careful when you're purchasing bars cause they may be high in sugar!

3. Order dishes that are pan-fried/baked

You can almost never go wrong w pan-fried/baked salmon.
(Unless you hate salmon :/)

4. Whole grain bread over white bread



If there's one thing I love more than my desserts, 
it would be bread hahah
I can never resist the smell of freshly baked bread D:
TOO GOOD.
Admit that most my carb intake comes from bread haha
However,
I don't eat white bread cause they may have been bleached to attain the colour,
artificial flavoring are added to make they taste better
& are stripped off all the good nutrients and fibre. 

5. Going for low-fat/soy milk instead of full-cream

I guess this is pretty self-explanatory heh

6. Chicken Rice 

No doubt that chicken rice tastes really good
& it's also part of our cuisine here in Singapore.
My tip to eating chicken rice is asking the meat to be chicken breast, no skin.
Still taste equally as good ok! HAHAHA 

7. Staying hydrated with PLAIN WATER

Instead of trying to quench your thirst with sugary drinks,
drink water instead!
Always stay hydrated!


Oh, forgot to add this in my previous post bout things that I don't eat;

Fruit Tarts
They are glazed with a layer of sugar
& is something that I can do without hahah


I don't restrict myself from eating anything/
go on a diet/
eat clean not only cause I don't see the need for it
but also cause I know I will binge eat after.
Who has this problem too?
hahah
So there you have it!
Hope what I shared here is helpful for some of y'all!
