I did lotsa diets before..

South Beach, Atkins - I did that

w/ south beach I lost quite a lot of weight
I continue by having atkins stuff for chocolate etc.
But when they discontinue bringing atkins to Singapore, I was confused.

All in all with the low carb diet (and exercise) I've lost 13 kg.

now?
simply living a healthy lifestyle
just watch the amount of carbs n fats.

You bet, Obesity is becoming the biggest killer in the Western world..why? it makes our immune system goes to sleep and allow viruses to easily attack us. Improper Diet is the largest contributor to alot of our the problems in poor Health...

The Terrible Trio That Assault the Immune System

Poor Nutrition :
- All forms of sugar interfere with the ability of white blood cells to destroy bacteria. A report published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition stated that within thirty minutes of consuming four ounces of sugar related food, a 50% reduction in the ability of white blood cells to destroy foreign invaders occurs and can last for over five hours.

The average American ingests 150 grams of white sugar daily.

- Suppressed immunity can come from even a minor deficiency of iron and selenium, two minerals that significant numbers of Americans are lacking. In addition, vitamin A deficiencies are common in children and can cripple immune functions.

- Excessive fat intake impairs immunity. Elevated cholesterol levels can inhibit a number of immune functions including the ability of white blood cells to attack infectious organisms.

- Obesity has been linked to weakened immune function. Overweight people have debilitated white blood cells.


Pollution
- Hundreds of studies using accepted scientific methods have shown that many pesticides alter the immune system in experimental animals and make them more susceptible to disease.

- Pesticides reduce the numbers of white blood cells and disease-fighting lymphocytes, and impair lymphocytes’ ability to respond to and kill bacteria and viruses.

- A recent report published in Environmental Pollution and Neuroimmunology states that the combined influence of various factors such as chemical agents, radiation, and stress on the immune system may lead to immunodeficiency in the form of respiratory and inflammatory diseases.

Stress
- Stress releases biochemicals that suppress immune function, putting us at higher risk for all types of infections.

- How and what we think impacts immunity. New data reports that brain cells make immune chemicals.

- Post-traumatic stress suffered after Hurricane Andrew lowered immune-killer cell counts in test subjects. Any life-changing event brings with it a form of post-traumatic stress, which can make us more susceptible to disease.

The Fact of the matter is, we NEED to maintain and look after our Immune system, so that it will optimse its function in our body, which was designed for, in the first place.Therefore, it is our decision as to how we would like to live a life style

nope,
I dont feel that at all.
I might be on low carb but I still eat as per normal if not more.
I simply have more proteins n i do munch on nuts.

That time atkins was around so I still had their chocolates, now I switch to Myoplex (EAS) CarbSense.

example of my meal:

breakfast:
beancurd w/o sugar (i used the atkins maple syrup or the low GI blueberry syrup u can get in Jason's)

brunch:
carbsense protein bar
or almonds

lunch:
fish soup w/o noodle;
chicken chop (w/o the fries - just request for more veggie);
malay dishes w/o the rice (they'll comment on this but dont care)

evening:
almonds or some low carb snacks i bought at the health store

dinner:
same as lunch or sometimes just salad.


but nowadays I modify it by adding protein shakes and low fat yoghurt for my late night snack ...

Hi Dear, the major challenge in this field is nutrition tips from different sources can conflict with each other. You should check with a qualified nutritionist first. Also keep in mind that there is no magic happily after diet! Most of the time it is unhealthy on the long run. I like to talk more about Healthy eating plan. You should follow a healthy eating plan that you like and that can stick you can stick to. The diet should be low in fat and sugar and high in fiber.Remember to watch portion sizes, and dont forget to read labels of food...If you ask me, I think low carbs diet will just raise the insuline level and stock more fat...But it is just if you asked! If you need more info, we provide a free nutritional analysis without any obligation...Good luck www.lenobleonline.com
