Furama Dim Sum and Bakery - Healthy fast food

Thursday, March 04, 2010

Shepard Center, Yonge and Shepard, Toronto, Canada.

This is a place in the food court at the Shepard Center.

It is a great place for healthy fast food. I had the Fish Steamed Combo today:

1.25 cup steamed white rice
180 grams steamed white fish
0.75 cup steamed bok choi
Light Thai Sauce

About 600 calories and 40 grams of protein. Not bad for fast food. $5.49

In the past I have had their steamed dumplings snack as well - very tasty - but not as well balanced - too many carbs.

    Don't think I'll get to Toronto. Am in DC now and decided I'd go all out and et prime rib. Well, they served beet risotto and some other things instead. Kept me on target....

Great advice in Stage 1 - just journaling my reactions

Tuesday, March 02, 2010

* Make Smart Substitutions - I ate very badly today but at the Chinese restaurant I opted for the steamed rice instead of the fried - and enjoyed it more - my body is craving simple healthy food.

* Combine Goals - Yep, need to keep in touch with my walking partners.

* Think 10-15 Minutes. Did my quickfire challenge completely for the first time today.

* Plan Ahead - Something as important as your health deserves some concentration - very true - I did badly today but at least I got my login points, drank some extra water, took vitamins, and tracked my terrible food for honesty's sake.

    I find the honesty of logging 'bad food' is one of the most important motivators. Then you have to face it, but at the same time, you can more easily see simple changes that would make big differences. Like your substitution of steamed rice for fried.

Crazy high body fat percentage

Sunday, February 28, 2010

My older mechanical scale started to go. It would give two different results 30 seconds apart. So I bought a new one. It's a Healthometer brand that can measure body fat. I don't know how accurate it is but it told me I have 39.4% body fat!

My BMI is 30.3 right now so borderline obese, and I would have thought my fat percentage would have been in the 30-35 range based on that. Even if it is not quite right that means my fat percentage is very high!

(For my husband it said 27.5, much lower even though he is also about 29 BMI)

I obviously need to get exercise and see how it progresses.

    One of the challenges with the scales that measure BF is that you should not use them first thing in the morning when you can be slightly dehydrated. You'll get a more accurate BF measure later in the day. Mine which is a Tanita recommends weigh in before dinner when your body has had time to get hydrated. When you are less hydrated your body fat measure will be higher even if weight is lower.

The advice is fairly obvious but it was a good reminder:
