Professional help with 'finding a balance in lifestyle'?

Recommended Posts

 

(I've seen the 'fat forum' but nothing much seems to be happening there)


Are there specialists/facilities known in the Pattaya region to really and effectively help expats consciously influence their calory balance? So I don't, as a remedy, want to be forced to eat thai cuisine 24/7/52.

It's reasonably healthy if one omits the sugar most Thais ladle on it to soften the spice. I get astonished looks when I use some spice, but omit the sugar.

You don't need a specialist to tell you what food to put in your mouth! Some comments here regarding Thai food are justified

 

Too much sugar and too much emphasis on white rice and noodle and sadly lacking in fibre.

 

Turn your attention to plenty of fruit and vegetables, whole grains and go light on red and processed meats.

 

And get some exercise.

 

Oh and strict limits on alcohol intake.

 

I know these rules and have largely complied for many years. And I thought I had my in and out calories under control, but growing older I find that sadly no. 

 

There must be a way to really measure the figures (referring to the calories, for those jokers who will refer me to the scales), and if it takes the proverbial experts?

This whole story about avoiding fat is bonkers.

No, it's not, if you want to lose weight.

You may well loose weight quickly, but you would also loose out on the many vitamins, minerals, fibre and carbs that are essential to a healthy mind and body.
 
Sorry, this is absurd advice.
 
A balanced diet, exercise. (mental and physical) rest and good sleep are the key factors for a healthy lifestyle.


Yes of course exercise and a good nights sleep are essential also, but as far as food is concerned I can only urge you to do some research and by that I don't just mean reading the Daily Mail. I get all the vitamins and minerals my body needs. Carbs are not essential and don't constitute a real food group. Just do your research before you tell me that what I say is absurd. The main thing is to cut out chemicals and processed food.

Agree.

Processed carbs should be avoided but complex carbs are an important part of a healthy diet.

Sent from my SM-J701F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app


Yes complex carbs are better because of the way they produce glucose without insulin spikes.

Thai food is not fattening...stop with this charade.

Sugar in curries?...never felt any in my tastebuds

The only fattening stuff is those deep-fried snacks and fried chicken/pork 

 

Where I come from, copious amounts of olive oil is applied onto anything....tons of bread (even with spaghetti😱)....wine...etc etc

A billion calories per sitting...seriously.

 

Thai food is a joke (calorie-wise) but also taste-wise imo

 

Most fatties who complain are probably alcoholics...nothing to do w/food
