21 Day Journaling Challenge: Day 3

The #3 Day Question: What is Your Ideal Diet Like?

My Answer:

My ideal diet would be food which is low-carb, low-fat and high-fibre. It doesn't matter whether I get this food from outside or I cook myself; the main point is the dish selection on our plate. I take pleasure in eating a lot of vegetables (I love colors on my plate), fresh fruits and white meat; and drinking milk and plain water. I used to practice this blood (type) A diet rather strictly few years back. On top of that, I seldom touched junk food; do not drink alcohol and smoke.

Sadly, since I moved to Malaysia (although I am still a fussy eater when it comes to the menu), I have become more like a carnivore here. I have been eating red meat and processed food for the past year and binging on junk-food more often than I ever did. I know it's wrong but I find it challenging to get back on the right track now. One day, I want to return to my previous blood (type) A diet lifestyle which is heavy on vegetables, fruits and free of red meat.

Also, since I have gastric problem, my eating habit is always several small meals a day. It is proven that eating 5 smaller meals a day prevents me from painful gastric irritation, makes me feeling full all the time thus easier to maintain my weight and gives me better digestion. I always feel healthier that way. My husband always asks me to eat bigger portions three times a day so I won't feel hungry so fast. However, this just doesn't work for me. I have to eat smaller portion for every meal otherwise I'd have upset stomach. My idea is I just stop eating when I am full. I don't make my stomach take food more than its capacity.
