Feeling Under the Weather

Lonely Road
I haven’t been feel­ing well for a week or so. Must’ve caught a stom­ach bug or some­thing. I decid­ed to go on a strict fruit and low-fat/low-cholesterol diet to try to elim­i­nate the prob­lem. I’m feel­ing bet­ter now (here’s hop­ing I don’t jinx it by blog­ging about it), i.e. no more bloat­ing, and the best thing is, I’ve lost at least 15 lbs.! I do need to lose weight bad­ly so I don’t real­ly mind it. In fact, I quite wel­come it.
I think I’m going to con­tin­ue with this diet, even when I’m back in my tip top shape. I’m not a big fan of veg­eta­bles (though I eat more veg­eta­bles now than I did, say, two years ago) but I LOVE fruits. And real­ly, now that I’m in Cana­da, food is not real­ly all that tempt­ing com­pared to when I was still in Indone­sia. Why? Because there is no Indone­sian food around unless I cook it myself, while in Indone­sia, deli­cious Indone­sian food can be had eas­i­ly and cheap­ly from street ven­dors who deliv­er the food right to your doorstep. Not a big fan of North American/European food here. Sor­ry! :P And God knows I only cook because I have to.

  1. I get pro­tein from low-fat yogurt and skin­less chick­en (grilled or roast­ed). I don’t just eat fruit all the time. So I guess it’s not real­ly a strict diet, eh? :)
