Birthdays

The past two weekends were devoted to birthdays. First, I celebrated my 30th birthday starting on a Saturday night until Monday night. Then, this last weekend (18th of October), I attended a kid’s birthday party.

I ditched the intermittent fasting out the window for my 30th birthday.

30th Birthday part 1

On the eve of my birthday, I took my high school friends with me for some beer and spicy chicken wings at Buffalo’s Wings N’ Things. All I could think of while trying to survive the Armageddon spicy sauce was “spicy food will boost your metabolism”. I sweat profusely but it was worth it, at least every once in a while.

My Gut Has Improved

I used to be the guy who suffered from constipation, diarrhoea, and other digestive tract problems. Can you imagine the discomfort and pain it gave me whenever I was outside our house? I had to condition myself to be prepared as it might happen anywhere, in a restaurant, in a party, in a public commute, in a movie theatre, and even on vacation, on a beach, in the mountain, or in a different country. I used to say a lot, “Shit happens.” Thank goodness, those days are now as rare as a four-leaf clover.

Knowledge, discipline, and commitment – they all helped me improve my gut health. Continue reading My Gut Has Improved

Benefits of Broccoli

When I was a kid I didn’t eat that much vegetables. Aside from carrots, squash, potatoes, and cabbages, everything else had to be forced down my digestive system. Broccoli was one that I particularly didn’t like. It looked too unsavoury for me. I preferred the similar-looking but semi-appealing looking cauliflower. Now, broccoli has become my most favourite vegetable and I often pair it with three eggs as part of my first meal for the day.

Here are the nutrients broccoli has:

  • Vitamin K
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin C
  • Fiber
  • Potassium
  • Folate
  • Lutein

Hello, Intermittent Fasting

Last week I began intermittent fasting. I’ve been hearing about it from my friends and fitness people I follow on Twitter since way back then.

One of the things that drove me away from intermittent fasting was the energy issue. How could I function properly if I didn’t have fuel in my body? My morning workout would suffer if I didn’t eat anything. Continue reading Hello, Intermittent Fasting
