TIPS ON HAVING A SLIM BODY NATURALLY:HOW MUCH MEAT ARE YOU EATING?

I am one of the lucky blessed with a slim body (Thanks to my mum who take care of our food when I was  young).  She taught us a lot about enjoying food but at the same time notice what we eat and to be healthy.  So, i do not have to go for slimming course.  Well, beauty is hard work.  It does not mean i don't work hard to stay slim.  Maintaining being slim is even harder.

Many do ask me what i eat to be so slim.  My waist is 23 inches.  In any case i don't do crash diet but i do follow certain rules when it comes to eating food normally but of course once in a while i break the rules.( like when it is buffet time) =)

When people said that you would have to take a lot of vegetables and fruits, the amount and the time you take it is also important.  However, today i would like to talk about the amount of meat that you take everyday.  It is very bad if you actually skip meat totally cause the body will have lack of protein together.  Our muscles need protein and if you don't feed enough of it, then your skin will be sagging and this is not good even if you are thin.  Of course you DO NOT WANT SMALL WAIST BUT SAGGING FACE RIGHT?

Believe it or not your DNA need cholesterol to create another health cells.  And good cholesterol comes from protein such as lean meat and beans.  So, if you don't eat anything protein, how can you have healthy and radiant skin?



How much protein is enough?
I follow this rules so to not stores too much of protein (convert to fat) inside my body.



USE YOUR PALM AS THE GUIDE TO HOW MUCH YOU NEED YOUR PROTEIN EVERYDAY

picture are from goggle image



This is basic guide i follow since as long as i can remember.  So, if you have bigger palm, means the amount of protein that you need is also bigger compare to those with smaller palm.

Size of Palm for Fish Meat: As much as you want.
Size of Palm for Red Meat: Never bigger than two palm
Size of Palm for chicken:  Never bigger than one palm

This is because the extra protein will be change into fats and keep inside our body.  So too much of extra fats stores inside your body does make you bigger size than others( sorry, i don't mean to be mean).  Besides, it is not easy to convert back the fats into energy.  You need work out out a lot to just change a spoon of fats.  So, that is scary.

So, that is also why Koreans are thin as they do not take much meat as meat is really expensive there and they can't have meat everyday for every meal?

So, how much of meat do you have per day?



This is just my opinion and search on my own and not mean to criticize any party.  It is my own unprofessional way of taking care of my diet based on my own experience and i would like to share it just as a guide.

  2. I think I eat too much meat. Well, not red meat but I eat a lot of chicken and turkey. Maybe a little over the limit. I think I eat too much rice, bread and sugar... that is what affects my diet the most. :(
