A Conversation With A Dietitician

Dietitian

Had a good conversation with the dietitian after having my full medical check-up done. I think the full package service provided by this private hospital is very good. This is my second time I did my checkup in a span of 4 years. Their service improved even more as now they hired specialized dietitian to consult you on your wellness health instead of the doctor explaining it to you.

We talk about an 1 hour or so and here is some good tips and myth buster that I can remember in our conversation which was very spotaneous and relaxed manner.


Good diet tips.


General rule

1. 1/2 of the plate must be leafy vegetable as they will have more fiber and less sugar. Vegetables that grow underground like carots has less fiber and more sugar.

2. 1/4 of the plate should consists of rice.

3. 1/4 of the plate should consider meat. Meat consists of 2 types: Red meat and white meat.

4. Red meat like pork, beef & mutton, and seafood best to only take it 1 time a week.

5. White meat: Fish & Chicken can take daily according to the rule number (2)

6. Must always take breakfast. Good to even take bread and peanut butter.

7. Take fruit after each meal: breakfast , lunch & dinner.

Below is some of my questions concerning my diets.

7. Milo drink + oat best to take only a cup. Oat itself is full of sugar as it is a carbohydrate. That explains why I get hungry when lunch time fast approaches. Contrary to popular believe, taking too much oat itself is not good also.

8. Need to take at least 2 litres of water (8 cups) everyday to flush out toxins and also uric acid in the body. Limit 3-1 in, coffee, milo or anything other drink to once a day. This includes also chinese tea.

9. Chinese as a culture of drinking brewed soup after each meal. Need to limit it to only 1 time consumption per week! Reason is that most soups are brewed with meat, bone extracts that will release u

10. Take only 3 egg yolks per week. White yolk is okey to take it but contain less protein and nutrien as egg yolk.

11. Milk: Best to take low fat milk. Typically low fat milk also contain sugar to compensate for the lack of flavor versus cream or full milk. Milk has cholestrol too!

12. Soya bean is a better alternative to milk. Even though that it is a bean based food, it also contribute to uric acid but most people have high uric acid due to the high consumption of meat.

13. Consuming protein whether from animal or plant based (tofu, soya, etc) will need to be followed up by exercise , otherwise it will go to waste.

14. Must always take breakfast even un-healthy ones.

15. No need finish up everything on the plate. I think is our asian culture where we are raised up not to waste food.

Exercise:

1. Do interval training: Mix aerobics, muscle training & calisthenic as part of routine to avoid the body getting accustomed to producing the same amount of energy for a given same exercise routine. This efficiency will make losing further weight lost harder.

2. Need to lose fat first before doing muscle build-up routine to avoid the muscle being built upon the fat, where it will get harder to lose more.

3. Avoid fasting too much and skipping breakfast as this will make the body think that it experiencing starvation mode: Where the body will convert sugar into fat for future use.

4. Don't give up if the weight loss starts to plateau as this is a sign that the body is adjusting itself. Future weight reduction is possible.

5. Best to take care while doing running exercise to avoid injury to the knee which is hard to heal. Alternate swimming and running.

6. Intensity of the exercise should be 60% to 80% multiple by (220 - minus age). Breathless-ness is a sign that the exercise is intense enough and start burning fat.

Good luck to me! :D

Revisiting The Gold Bug

Posted by Kris | Wednesday, November 26, 2014 | , | 0 comments »

Gold DownTrending
With Dow Jones and the US markets breaking new highs, commodities especially gold is clearly losing its sparkle. With the US ending its QE3, it further puts pressure into gold as a safe haven.

From the above chart since 2012, gold has been a downtrend and it is still continues on a downtrend with no sign of reversal!!

I Completed Half Marathon PBIM2014

My Half Marathon Medal, yeah!!
I completed my 1st Half Marathon medal in my life! yesterday!!. 21KM seems so short for me actually unlike the 1st time I attempted before when I was much younger and un-prepared at all. That time ended badly as I could not really walk after the marathon and without a medal to show.

Last year, I just got my 10Km medal.So consider big improvement right? :D

Brokerage Versus Wealth Management - Review

Posted by Kris | Thursday, November 13, 2014 | | 3 comments »

Fees
Brokerage to a larger extent means fees for financial related services provided by wealth management funds. High brokerage fees does not mean that investment returns by a particular asset management directly correlates to higher returns. Higher fees better asset management is marketing cliche. Remember, whether or not a funds makes money for its investor, the fund manager will still get paid.

Euro 
This year is another tire-some year with heavy workloads and hectic schedule pressures. I really want to have a holiday next year, so i am been looking to travel destinations especially Euro countries. This region is a place i never visited before.

So I googled around and I found a online travel agency called travelgenio. It sounds like "travel genie"?!. Anyway, this company was founded recently in Argentina and managed to grow rapidly to cover european countries in its database.

Bloody Red October 2014: Stock FreeFall

Posted by Kris | Tuesday, October 14, 2014 | , | 0 comments »

While October is when people are celebrating and drinking merrily during OctoberFest, the stock market is bleeding like crazy.

The reason given by the media is the end of QE3, the longest and largest of the QE. This sparked a huge Dow Jones selldown. Meanwhile the political demonstration at Hong Kong is getting crazier day by day. The tension is brewing waiting for an explosive end.

KLCI charts don't look good. Expect more bleeding
FKLCI chart don't look very good!

Malaysia Budget 2015 Summary

Posted by Kris | Friday, October 10, 2014 | | 0 comments »


2015: Going forward into GST Land.

Today 10 October aka (10 10) perfect 10 day, the budget for 2015 is being announced. I look thru some of the summary and again did not see any goodies to the soon to be shrinking middle class.

Remember on April Fool 2015, we will be subject to the 6% GST. (not sure why people kept on saying GST 6% is considered low in Msia considering our high cost of living year by year)

Here are some of the tax budget items that might impact you individually and as a family. Extract from TheStar and therakyatpost.
