I couldn't believe the queue in the picture of the local rag! All queueing up for Reduze.

I'm surprised we haven't seen it on here yet! Though a good tip is to add some lipase on your meals, its a fat enzyme, that breaks it down for energy use, so you also need to walk more.

It takes a cycle to understand how the body works in food(energy source intake) and output in energy generation. The problem is that here in Singapore we are eating too fast, too much, too often and all at the wrong time :)


How long did it take you to lose 20 kg? How tall are you? How old are you?


6 months and I'm 1.84m at 48 years :)

Not to bad and considering what you are espousing, it would seem attainable reasonably enough. I know.

I lost a similar amount in a similar amount of time. I'm short at 1.7m and went from 94Kg to 69kg (25kg) in 22 weeks, primarily due to dietary changes (eating healthy fresh unprocessed foods when you are supposed to :wink: ) The only difference is I didn't exercise at all. I also took no supplements, pills, shakes, wraps or anything else other than eating properly. I didn't count calories either. I did take a multivitamin while on the diet but quit once I got to where I wanted to maintain. That was two years ago that I finished. I've gained around 2~3kg back to where I feel comfortable (71-72kg). I'm well within normal BMI and my body fat is a more realistic 18% but unless you are using a hydrostatic weighing tank, your body fat readings are subjective only and should only be used as a general guideline to see progress and not something to quote.

As an adjunct to this, I also no longer have HBP, High Cholesterol or elevated uric acid levels and my physician has stopped all my medications for two years now. My BP now stays around 70-75/110-115

Oh, I'm now 63.

I like that diet but the 8% is too rich, with around 1200 calories extra per litre 4% is around 1200 for 2 litre :-|

Hey guys, i have to agree that diet control and exercise play a critial role in weight loss. Even though, the evidence based medicine for herbs will always remain relatively poor but then again, I've to say that some herbs really do help. They may take a little longer to work compared to orthodox mediations.

I've personally seen people taking herbal supplements or perhaps, plant extracts to help with weight loss. Some people would put them in a capsule and simply take while some would drink it as a tea. I know of a few of plants extracts specially included in weight loss products overseas but i reckon you would see them around in singapore.

on a side note, who would give these herbal weight loss supplements a try? just interested! =p

Losing weight should be based on health. We could exercise, eat food and fruit that is usful for losing weight. Maybe slow, but there is no harm for our health.

some people say that acupucture helps with weight loss. It like helps you lose your appetite. one of my relative got the treatment for like 2months and really was satisfied with the result. It just comes down to not taking in too much food :) .

bye-bye christina. It was just a matter of time before you were caught out. You were on Singaporum this morning flogging the same crap. You are now history.

set an achievable goal for your weight reductions. determine your calorie intake. do not eat snacks when you are bored. make a list of food you eat on a typical day. go over the list and decide which foods to cut out or reduce. seek out alternatives to the unhealthy foods you've identified. plan your meals.wathc your portion sizes. graze on healthy snacks. get more fiber. drink plenty of water. exercise. rest properly. be consistent and disciplined, and have self motivation. and maintain your weight loss.

Just get a dose of Dehli belly or eat a tape worm, I have not had a proper meal in 10 days, started as gastric flu, amazing I have lost 2.5kgs, as I am now so used to eating little seem like its not a problem to carry on!

Today had two spoons of museli for breakie, one boiled egg for lunch, and a small plate of broccoli for dinner. Down to 90kg, 5ft11 tall need to hit 80kg.
