I am 'Anti-Diet' So Here's What I Do

14:35Lade Ibikunle

I am not a fan of diets, infact I hate it. First cos I do not like foreign, mende mende things (salad, vegetable, mayonnaise, salmon, lettuce, green peas, even to something as basic as sausage🙈) please don't ask me why. I guess when God created me, He injected all the 'Nigerianess' He could find into me; I like my Amala, Efo, Pounded Yam, Eba, etc) So you see, diet is not for me. Secondly, diets are so restricting, don't it this, don't do that, don't eat at this time, eat at this time...argh kilode? and lastly, I am veeeeeerrrrrrry lazy when it comes to exercising. The most exercise I do is walking to the bus-stop from my house. Shikena
So in view of all of this, I kinda try to watch what I eat.I guess moderation is key in this case. I try as much as possible to be healthy even while I eat what I like. So here's what my customized 'diet' plan looks like

1. My diet plan does not demonize food

Why will my diet plan say I can only eat once a day??? Some people are reading this saying 'haba Lade why are you exaggerating? no diet plan says eat once a day'. There are some diet plans that the only major food you eat throughout the day is 2 boiled eggs. Why am I eating 2 boiled eggs? Am I am Ebora (diety)? I eat when i'm hungry but then I do it in moderation.
2. I Love what I eat

Why on earth would I want to eat foods I don't enjoy just because they'll make me look skinny? There are other healthier options instead. Take for instance this parfait photographed in this post, it's a mixture of healthy low-fat yogurt and fruits you will normally eat. No strange object. Now that's what I call healthy eating. Not that I will be eating things that look like blended rat poop and squeezing my face with every gulp.
3. I don't go hungry 
I don't starve myself all in the name of diet. And the truth is you are likely to consume more food (especially the unhealthy ones) when you are constantly food-starved. Being hungry will also make you feel cranky, weak, and tired, negative and generally annoying.
