Tip 3: What to eat!

23 04 2012

So how are you going to start our day; But before that we need to set a few rules that I advice you to follow:

1.You don’t need to measure your weight every single day or else you will becomeย obsessive with that number you want to reach. Plus research studies have shown a good relationship between bad mood and the urge to eat, therefore, if you stand on the scale everyday with no kilos dropping, you will definitely have a bad mood and as a result your body will ask for food (especially that fat junky food) and your diet is broken! Standing on the scale once a month is more than enough to know exactly how many kilos you’ve lost throughout the month. Your clothes, on the other hand, are like your best friends, they will tell you the truth and nothing but the truth.

2. Write down what you’ve eaten throughout the day and stick to it! Get a notebook and set the following table on it:

Day Breakfast Lunch Dinner Water Extras

Honestly register what you eat! You won’t be cheating anyone but yourself ๐Ÿ˜‰ As for the extras: register the snacks that you eat between meals, I don’t mean chips and chocolates! I mean healthy snacks like fruits,ย veggies, and if you’re good you can add a small piece of dark chocolate ๐Ÿ™‚

Water: you should at least drink 9 glasses of water everyday!

3. Drink lots of water: drinking water before your meal can reduce up to 20% of what you eat. So drink a glass of water before every meal, drink water when you feel hungry, and drink water whenever you have a few minutes to kill; Basically drink water all the time ๐Ÿ™‚

4. If you had your meal, snack and drank water but you’re still hungry go and brush your teeth ๐Ÿ™‚ it’s effective I promise!

5. No Sodas orย alcohol drinks whatsoever! If you can’t help it try to drink diet sodas once a day ONLY!

Now back to our food schedule:

Breakfast: Of course start with a glass of water and I advice you to drink a glass of milk as well (skimmed milk or full fat if you can’t stand the skimmed one) then start with your breakfast. You have the choice of the following:

  • You can start with a bowel of cereal, not the corn one, choose one that is designed for diets, I honestly got used to the whole wheat ones and stopped eating the corn based flakes! Special K from kellogg’s, is really good and my favourite is the one with berries! ย You can also try the Nestle fitness one, personally I didn’t like it, it tasted too sweet for me. There are other brands that you can try but make sure the cereal you choose is whole wheat instead of corn! You can add fruits to your bowel, fruits like strawberries, blueberries, cranberries or any other kind of berries! Berries are full of anti oxidants and taste really good and will give you a great boost.
  • If you’re not a fan of cereals or you’re just bored and you want to have another thing for breakfast try having the Halloumi Cheese let’s say 80 g of Halloumi and spread it on a medium brown sandwich roll with a leaf of lettuce. You can also add a slice of turkey and eat tomato and cucumber with it. You get to have 5 olives as well. This is my favourite breakfast and I always enjoy it with a nice cup of tea.
  • You can also start your day with a boiled egg with brown bread, cucumber andย tomato
  • If you don’t like any of the above, how about a bowel ofย yoghurt and berries, or apples, or any other fruit? But make sure you don’t mix more than three kinds of fruit in one meal.
Breakfast is a very important meal to start your day with, it improves the metabolism ย in your body and helps you to start burning the unwanted fat! Never ever skip your breakfast!

Lunch:ย You can repeat what you had on breakfast or you can follow the following suggestions, but first, drink a glass of water ๐Ÿ™‚

  • A bowel of salad with a grilled chicken (which you can basically find in any restaurant) as for the dressing, I would very much recommend theย Greekย dressing (olive oil, a bit of salt and lemon) but if you can’t eat it without theย Caesarย dressing, for example, try to add a bit of it only.
  • A medium brown bread or one brown toast with grilled piece of chicken and olives is also an option (I will present other healthy, tasty lunch recipes in other tips)

Dinner:ย As for dinner you have a choice to eat anything you want but in small doses and of course drink a glass of water before you start!

  • A bowel of salad and grilled chicken breast with steamed vegetables (especially broccoli! it’s my favourite and it’s very healthy! other vegetables like peas, carrots, squash, courgette, hmmm and many more)
  • A bowel of salad and a steak with steamed vegetables
  • A bowel of salad and any kind of seafood (cooked, steamed, grilled but NOT fried!)
  • A bowel of salad and spaghetti Bologneseย ย with a bit of parmesan cheese, mind you with pastas I would very much recommend you with light sauces ย instead of sauces that include cream!

So bottom line, you can have anything but in small doses and not fried! You should start with a bowel of salad and you can add a bit of rice if you want to any meal. I would say 3 – 5 spoons of rice with your dinner.

Finally Snacks: you should have two snacks a day, one between breakfast and lunch, the other one between lunch and dinner. You can eat one kind of fruit in every snack and/or one kind of vegetable. And good news… you can have a little piece of DARK chocolate every other day!

Flash news: choose a FREE DAYย once a week and stick to it! You can eat WHATEVER you want on this day! Yohoooo!

Tip 2: Change is Good, Commit to it!

7 04 2012

OK so you have already admitted that you don’t lead a healthy lifestyle which is great! Hop on to step two!

You’ll see with the coming tips that this new lifestyle is considerably easy and actually “doable” I did it and so you can! Don’t be afraid and let’s do it!

Beware when you start, you will be energetic,ย enthusiastic and eager to change but… I must warn you, after the first week things are going to get harder, your body is going to ask for the crappy things you’ve been eating so don’t give in! You need to set your body to this new system.

You MUST commit! This is your life we’re talking about, so don’t lose hope or faith. You can do it!

I assure you that if you stick to the tips and the new lifestyle within a monthย you’ll become addicted to this new diet and actually your stomach will get used to the healthy food and will ask more and more for it.

Flash news: you get to have a free day!! So don’t forget to plan all week for your treat ย ๐Ÿ˜‰

Believe me it’s an easy task and can be done by YOU! Just commit to it and never leave it for your old unhealthy lifestyle!

Next tip it’s going to be on how your day should be, what to eat, what not to eat, what to do, etc…

In the end here’s something I like about commitment and it’s true!

First Tip: Admit you need change

3 04 2012

Everything starts with this sentence: “Don’t underestimate the power of denial” Yes indeed! We never start becoming healthy because we always think that: OK I lead a healthy lifestyle; I eat fruits, vegetables, drink enough water and I exercise but I’m not losing weight or getting any closer to that healthy looking body.

Well let me be the first to tell you; guys… this is impossible! There’s no sense in the world that approves that you are eating healthy and exercising, yet you don’t like how you look (special health problems are not counted here!)

There must be something wrong in your diet! And when I say diet I mean the way that you eat. Stop denying!

Here’s a few questions you need to answer before you say you’re healthy:

1. Does your body ask for fruits & vegetables when two days pass and you don’t eat them? (You let two days pass without eating any fruits or veggies? busted!)

2. Do you drink 9 glasses of water every single day??

3. How frequently do you do sports? Do you even like sports?

4. Do you eat three meals a day?

If one of the above was a no then you have to stop thinking that you are OK!

Getting a new lifestyle is not impossible and after a while it would be refreshing and fun but you need to admit that you have a problem and staying the way you are is not going to help!

Fine so start with this: “I admit it, I need to change the way I look, the way I eat, the way I live my life”

Which leads us to the second tip: Change is good, so commit to it!

Meaning of Freedom

27 03 2011

We’re hearing a lot of the word “Freedom” lately especially in the Arab World. It’s not a new word and it’s been a subject to discussion ever since humans ever existed on Earth.

If you google the word “Freedom” you’ll get about 428,000,000 results in exactly 0.08 seconds! I’m sure you’re not gonna go through all these results and even if you want to I don’t know how long it will take you to read all these results!

In Wikipedia “Freedom” is defined as: “The state of being free, of not being imprisoned or enslaved.”

What is the meaning of “Being Free” anyway??? I think all humans are Freedom lovers in nature but the meaning of the word “Free” can vary from one human to another depending on their location, bringing up, religion, race, education, and the list goes on and on.

I think “Freedom” is a very general word that can have different and various explanations and meanings but I’ll try to sum that up in few simple words.

“Freedom” is when you are able to do whatever you want without negatively affecting anybody else with this free act of yours.

“Freedom” means that you are able to talk whatever you want and at the same time listen to what others are saying without having to convince each other with either ideas.

“Freedom” means respecting others for who they are and not for what they wear, what colour they are, where they come from, etc…

“Freedom” is very general yet dangerous. “Freedom” is more than just a word! It’s an act of respecting people for being humans and dealing with them as humans.

“Freedom” is a responsibility and being “Free” is not an easy task. When you’re ‘Free” you are responsible for each and every word you say and for each and every act you do.

“Being Free” doesn’t mean that you live in a world of your own. “Being free” means you are in a mental and physical state where you are totally able to deal with ALL humans and most important, respect them and understand them!

It’s never an easy task to be “Free”!


Famous Quotes of Freedom:

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.ย  ~Abraham Lincoln

Nothing is more difficult, and therefore more precious, than to be able to decide.ย  ~Napoleon Bonaparte

I wish that every human life might be pure transparent freedom.ย  ~Simone de Beauvoir

Freedom is the oxygen of the soul.ย  ~Moshe Dayan



Freedom of Mind

7 03 2011

The other day I was tipped to listen to a radio morning show that was hosting a very good friend of ours as a guest to talk about youth and the right way to motivate them in order to fulfill all their dreams.

However, the speaker mentioned how important it is to be happy from the inside in order to become actually happy and start dreaming. He invented a rule which consisted of five words, all starting with the same Arabic letter, each word meant something that lead to the other.

I don’t quite remember the 5 words but I do remember, what sounded to me, the most important one of all; The Freedom of Mind. We as youth, in general, always have someone who tries to live our lives and mentors us to the right way to live it! This is where we start losing the ability to dream. In order to be successful and make something you call your own, even if it was a small shop that sells ice-cream, you need to start dreaming and stop living somebody else’s dream.

Let me put it like this, you need to think what is the most important thing in your life. What makes you an important, successful person in your OWN opinion.. Is it having a business to call your own? Or are you the type of person who would like to improve in a career? Start by thinking what you’re good at and dream. If you feel that you are a person who likes a permanent job, put a goal in front of you and start thinking where you want to be later in your life, what it takes to get there then go and achieve your dreams!

Don’t listen to people who will let you down.. don’t think of the people around you and what they want you to be and what would they think of you being the person you want to be! Whether they like it or not, this is your life, and not someone else’s! If they don’t like it now and you’re determined to get there, they’ll understand when you succeed. Believe me I’ve seen it happen, it’s not something impossible, but we just tend to run away to the easier choice and we start blaming everything around us! We blame the simplest and most stupid things; We blame the weather, the society, time.. when we want, nothing is on our side and we think we’re waiting for the perfect storm. But how would a storm blow if there’s not enough wind to make it come! Free your mind and think positive.

Every morning is a new chance, a new day, a new opportunity, if you wake up feeling optimistic and happy then you’re able to make the most of this day. But if you wake up groaning and feeling it’s just another boring day, then so it will be!

I don’t know about you but I do believe in Karma and I certainly believe in Energy Flow. If you believe in something, it will happen. It’s not only the energy that will bring it, it’s YOU who will make this energy flow. I believed in many things in my life and believe me I consider myself to be lucky in everything. I assure you I wasn’t born lucky, but I believed I was lucky and so I was. I rarely moan or groan and when something doesn’t go right it’s because I let it go wrong.

It’s US who make our own destinies! Once you believe this, you’ll be successful, whether in starting an independent business, developing a career in someone else’s business, in housekeeping, selling shoes, selling fruits and vegetables, even raising children! It’s important to be successful in what you do and not try to live others’ success.

Dream and dream and dream! Set your dream and sail to fulfill it!

Finally, I’m telling you, sometimes you won’t wake up feeling how grateful you are and how wonderful life is, but I want you to remember one thing when you feel low; Life is not a pleasant journey, but it is us who either keep it so, or make the best out of it.
