I am a very peculiar guy about food. I don't eat yesterday leftover's, fish that are not cleaned properly and cooked (although Sushi and Sashimi are my favorites). My food appetite is very funny and can easily be disturbed. Just by looking at the food that are served on a table, if the look doesn't look right, if the smell doesn't smell right then there's a 100% guarantee that i will walk straight to cashier and pay the bill straight and never walk into that restaurant again. This always happen to me in Mamak restaurants and i really really hate their foods. It's very oily and overpriced. I don't know how other Malaysians stand that.
My usual diet is always, less carbohydrate, less sugar, less salt and less oil. So my choice always goes to Sushi and Sashimi. If in doubt, Japanese food never fails to amaze. So, my hot drinks is always without sugar in it and i am doing well skipping all sort of soft drinks whenever possible.
Carbon as found in carbohydrate in foods are poisonous. Thats my own opinion. It's not based on any scientific journal. Unlike water which does not have carbon in it, carbon is the only source of energy in our body and almost all type of energy around us (fuel, charcoal, etc). So, we need carbon to survive and we cant live solely on water. After 29 years of eating foods (or 28, still its a pretty impressive resume), i somehow believed that carbons poison our minds at the same time providing energy to our body. Excessive intake of sugar or cholesterol will increase our chances of meeting Mr Doctor.
Doctor is not my real concern. If im gonna die, I'm just gonna die. No even one second earlier or later but, what most important is that while im alive, i'm going to push myself to the fullest and I found that excessive amount of carbon inside my body will always results in slowness, laziness, sleepiness and always lead to idiocy or unintelligent comment/remark. Thats one of the reason sometimes where I skip my lunch just to push myself to the max in the afternoon. Somehow for some reason, I perform better when i'm hungry (or drunk hahahahhaha) rather than when i'm full. My brain just started to work in slow motion when i'm full. So, carbon might be a one kind of drug *thinking*.
So... when is it to tell ourself enough is enough? Oh well, for sure we can find lots and lots of links out there to tell us which diet fits us best but by the end of the day I believe only ourself can tell us when enough is enough. So far my diet is......... what I call it..... nah.. i can't think any name for it. It's basically I only eat when I feel like. There's no rule saying that you have to eat 3 or 4 times a day so i always skip either breakfast, lunch or dinner... or sometimes the whole breakfast, lunch and dinner for 48 hours straight and only live with water. Still alive though and still weighting at 70KG.
With my current diet, i feel a lot alive and healthier. Probably you all can give a try to eat less and see what kind of performance does it give to your mind. Hey, by not eating a day won't kill you and more, there's a lot of artificial flavor and coloring outside there inside the food. Try to make sure that what you are eating is really a food not just some toxic waste decorated with cherries. Try to whack more on fresh fruits, steamed vegies (not the one decorated with steak or cheese) and fish. I believe a plate of rice / noodle is enough to provide me the energy for the whole day so, for the rest of the meals, i can eat anything else thats low in carbon. Cigarette is a good way to get your mind out of thinking about foods although if you are not a smoker then i do not encouraged you to try.
Well... what do u think?
