Food for him

My man has been on low carb diet for past 5 months. He did lost some weights along the way but with those year-end dinners, he gained some back. It took a lot of determination on him part to go on diet as it is not easy.

In the morning he takes some oats before going off to work. Other day he would have sandwiches, and on weekends, he would have breakfast outside with us but usually nothing heavy or high calories.

He joined a MLM last August and took their supplements and meal replacements. For first 2 months, he had to eat steamed breast meats, carrots, broccoli and hard-boiled eggs. He managed to do so for dinner for 2 months.

Then the menu got better. He can have grilled chickens or fishes but he could not take breast meats anymore. You know breast could be tough and tasteless even you grill them.

So I give him chicken thighs. Of course he will peel off the skin and take the meat.


When he is bored with grilled chicken, I will make soup for him. Like this nutritious black chicken soup.


For vegetable, I alternate between carrots, broccoli, cucumbers and salad. Last month, when we went back to Kapit, my MIL gave us a big container of her hand-made anchovies sambal. 


We love the sambal; fragrant, tasty and mild spicy. It tasted good with cucumber. ^^


Sometimes hubby ate sambal with his egg. He never take egg yolk so I have to discard the yolk for him. 


Now, there it goes. The menu for my big man.

I love grilled chicken, Rose, and your soup looks delicious! In fact, so does the grilled chicken! :)

It's in our genes - we just smell food and we put on weight already.

I have given up on dieting long ago. Once the body gets used to the reduced amount of food, weight will increase when one eats just a little bit more. They say reduce...and then must exercise to maintain. Unfortunately, the word exercise does not exist in my vocabulary. Hehehehehe!!!!

I heard eating according to the blood type will help to reduce and maintain weight.
