Changing My Diet
I have been adopting a new diet recently for the past three days.
I call it the Oatmeal Diet.
Well, my weight hasn’t exactly gone down, but there are improvements.
Bowel system seems to be improving for one. I used to constipate for the longest time, like a week!! And that really affects my mood, sometimes I have to rely on laxatives to keep me going (to the toilet). But since two days ago, I have visited the toilet on a daily basis.
Technically, the oatmeal diet consists of sugar-free oatmeal and milk, full cream milk for that matter. Now I know that full cream milk are fattening, so why didn’t I go for skimmed milk or fresh milk at least?
There are few reasons to this.
First, I once heard or read from somewhere, that despite skimmed or low fat milk have lower fat percentage in it, because of the skimming process, the milk loses flavor and therefore to make up for the lost flavor, manufacturer usually adds in food conditioner and other sorts of chemical which are harmful to the body. And therefore is it better to opt for fresh or full cream milk than low fat milk. The same concept applies to yogurt drinks, low fat drinks usually has higher sugar content than normal drinks.
Second, it’s bloody sugar-less oatmeal. Not your packaged prepared muesli that you can purchase from stores, those are delicious. I never really tried pure plain oats before, and thought that maybe the richness of the milk can satisfy my taste bud enough to swallow the meal.
And to be honest, it’s actually quite delicious.
Nicolekiss Oatmeal Ingredient:
- a cup of organic baby oats (you can buy this from Chinese herbs store)
- a handful of raisins (to add sweetness)
- fresh or full cream milk
- slice in a whole banana (optional)
One packet of oats can last you for half a week if you eat it for breakfast and dinner.
The larger chunks are prunes
Simple, easy to make, cheap.
