    Ted.com video alert : Mark Bittman - What's wrong with what we eat

    In this fiery and funny talk, New York Times food writer Mark Bittman weighs in on what's wrong with the way we eat now (too much meat, too few plants; too much fast food, too little home cooking), and why it's putting the entire planet at risk.

    Fat Burning Recipes to Die for!

    MEAL FREQUENCY

    Understand that your body does not store protein like it does with fat and carbohydrates. The protein you eat will either be used to repair and rebuild or eliminated as waste—it is not stored as fat.

    After about three hours, the amino acids taken from your last protein-based meal are no longer in your bloodstream. At this point, your body begins to seek out the amino acids it needs from your lean body mass. Eating every three hours prevents this from happening.

    Eating frequently ensures your lean body mass stays intact and that your muscles are not being broken down and used for energy. Remember, the more lean mass you have, the faster your metabolism will be.

    Frequent meals also help to control cravings and binge eating. When blood sugar drops and tells you that you’re hungry, it’s usually too late to eat a smart meal. By this time, you just want food and you go after what ever it is that you crave. When you eat strategically, you will never get to this point and you can always have a plan for your next meal.

    Frequent meals keep blood sugar levels normalized, which keeps insulin levels at bay. This means you will be burning fat rather than storing it.

    Missing a meal is a cardinal sin on the 3-Week Diet.

    The simple fact of the matter is that when you skip a meal, your metabolism slows down and puts your body into a catabolic state.

    Never, ever skip a meal! I know it will be difficult to eat 5-6 times at first but you must understand that your body needs amino acids...even when you skip a meal.

    The key to pulling this off successfully is to have preplanned meals for every day. In the diet portion of the 3-Week Diet, you’ll learn some “secrets” on how to do this effectively.

    Meal frequency is a key component to losing weight on the 3 Week Diet. By eating five meals a day as prescribed in the 3 Week Diet, you will significantly increase your metabolism, effectively build lean muscle and increase the amount of fat you burn on a daily basis.

    Following the 3 Week Diet typically results in body fat losses of ¾ to 1-pound of fat every day.

    When you add the 3 Week Workout to the diet, fat loss is typically over 1-pound per day. Because of this, you will start to see some nice progress in just a couple of days after starting.

    In following this diet without deviation, I have yet to find anyone not being able to lose at least 10 pounds in the 21-day period. It truly was nothing short of miraculous...and I have been excited to share this breakthrough ever since.

    The 3-Week Diet is similar to a Protein Sparing Modified Fast, in that we will “trick” the body into entering a 24/7 fat-burning “starvation” mode, while we provide it with the appropriate amount of protein that it needs so that lean body mass is spared...not to mention the added thermic effect of digesting that protein. In addition to carbohydrate restriction and strategic protein consumption, we will add quality, healthy fats to enhance our fat-burning goals.

    While carbohydrates are NOT essential to the human body, we cannot live without protein and fat. Interestingly, we could eat all the carbohydrates we wanted and could still die of starvation if we did not have fat and protein in our diet.

    We restrict carbohydrates in this diet because it immediately stops adding to the fat cells we already have AND it forces our bodies to burn fat for all of our daily energy needs.

    We limit the fat in this diet to EFAs (essential fatty acids) and the trace amounts of fat in the allowed foods. Limiting (but not completely eliminating) fat will force our bodies to burn stored fat rather than to use dietary fat (the fat we eat) for our energy needs. Keep in mind that our bodies do need a certain amount of fat every day for proper functioning.

    However, your body doesn’t care if it gets the fat from your diet or from the fat stored on your hips, thighs, belly and butt. So, we will give your body the kind of fat it loves and needs in the form of EFAs.

    We will increase our protein consumption because it helps preserve lean body mass and it keeps our metabolisms cranked up. Also, digesting protein burns a ton of calories due to its chemical structure that makes it far more diffcult to digest than fat and carbohydrates.

    Protein keeps you full for hours and the amino acids in protein are an absolute requirement to sustain your life and to keep you healthy.

    Keep in mind that this diet is about maximizing what we need while reducing/restricting what we don’t.

    My Journey from US size 0 to 8 & Back
    (I sacrificed my body to science just for you, my dear blog readers)

    After my 3rd kid, I was a size 6-8 (depending on my dinner). I really tried everything:

    • Exercise - 10-12 km jogs everyday
    • Eating Less - Isn't losing weight just 'Eating less & Moving more'?
    • Duramine Diet pills - I lost my appetite, became an insomniac but was totally pepped up with energy. All would have been well except you can't take this long term coz' it's bad for your internal organs & I was cranky as hell! (What do you expect with 3 -4 hours of sleep every night, I was getting delusional...)
    • Tummy patches from Korea - You can't use this everyday coz' in the Singapore heat, it gets itchy. The verdict is still out on this, I think I just got an extremely itchy & sweaty stomach, with a slight loss in belly fat.
    • Marie France Bodyline Slimming Treatments - I tried a cocktail of all their treatments (1 each at a promotional price). I did lose quite a bit of my weight gain from my pregnancies and most of my stomach fat (my problem area), but the pounds rushed right back after I stopped the program (Who can spend thousands of $$$ to maintain my post-treatment weight? Darn, aren't I supposed to be able to keep the weight off on a semi-permanent basis?).
    • Body wraps & 'Lipolysis' - OK, be careful of this. You can suffer so much water loss through sweat and dehydration that you actually feel dizzy & unwell. The inch loss and weight loss is imaginary as you will definitely need to drink water & Boom! It's baaaaccccck...
    • Indonesian Jamu massages - This was my first treatment & the massage was quite painful (1 hour's worth of 'No pain, no gain') & there appeared to be bruises on my tummy. The massage was supposed to 'soften' the hard crystallized fat in your belly!
    • Zaggora Hotpants - I loved these hotpants for running, you sweat like a pig under the wetsuit material of the hotpants and feel like you have accomplished a whole lot. I did get my amazing trim thighs!
    • 3 Week Diet - I am working on getting my tummy as flat as possible and maybe getting that line down the middle of your stomach if you are really in great shape for a woman. I am on a reasonable high protein-low carb diet plan (No Atkins diet for me!). By reasonable, I mean I eat like a normal person, no starvation required. In fact, I try to eat small meals 4 hourly, supplemented with Fish oil, Whey protein, CLA, Leucine, Greens+ Superfoods, Fat burners and plenty of water to clear the toxins from my body. (Work in progress - I will report back to you of the results)

    My After weight loss picture was taken at the beginning of this year and I am 45 years old (2015). I am a US size 2-4 now. I don't think I will ever be a size 0 again in this lifetime & be able to slip on a dress without even unzipping it (like in the good ole days... never mind, there is always my next life.)

    In case you think I have skinny Chinese genes, nope, my grandfather had pants 3 normal-sized guys could get into. My mother used to horrify me with stories of how my aunt's 20 inch waist before marriage became 20 inch thighs after her 4 kids. I was determined not to walk down that scary path of permanently being called 'Auntie' by all and sundry.
