Seriously, I should be studying right now.
Anyway, I'm going to start 'the asa banana diet'. Don't misunderstand though, I actually strongly dislike diets. A healthy lifestyle is the only effective way to lose weight. But this is honestly not a diet in the true sense of the word.
The 'rules' are basically:
- Eat a banana for breakfast (you can have more than one, but I'm sure one will be enough for me)
- Eat normally for lunch and dinner, until about 80% full
- One snack at 3 PM or so is allowed
- Don't eat dessert after dinner
- Eat dinner before 8 PM, preferably 6 PM.
- Go to bed before midnight
- Drink room temperature water
So, for one, most of those rules are common sense. Except the banana. And of course I know eating a banana for breakfast won't make me skinny all of a sudden. But bananas are healthy and filling, so it's not like eating one for breakfast is a bad thing.
Also, this is a Japanese diet. And I already have developed a very Japanese way of eating. I eat mostly rice, fish and vegetables. I do love yoghurt, but I'm willing to stop eating it. Let us not disregard that Japan has the lowest obesity percentage of all developed countries.
So my day will probably go like this:
6 AM: Banana!
1 PM: Lunch, which is usually a rice ball or a handful of nuts, some portable veggies like cherry tomatoes and carrots
6 PM: Dinner, I always have some soup (stock-based, with hardly anything in it), rice, vegetables, fish, sometimes an egg...
The problem is the snack. It's planned at 3 PM, but as you can see, there's no need for a snack at 3 PM, since I eat lunch at 1 PM. I'll see when I consume my snack after I've tried this for a few days.
I've been eating healthily the past few days too, but I only just bought bananas (and loads of other veggies and fish) today, so I'm officially starting the 'Asa banana diet' (Asa means morning, by the way) tomorrow.
Now, I'm eating strawberries~ Yum~
