★WHAT I EAT IN A DAY★& MY DAILY ACTIBITIES TO STAY SLIM AND HEALTHY (EP204)
Today, I want to share with you, what I eat in a day.
This topic is requested one, some of you have been asking.
I eat a lot, more than you think
As you know, I am in a food industry for 17 years, I have a lot of opportunity to taste foods, more than a people.
Developing new recipes are fun, but you have to taste it again and again until you are happy with it.
I am sure that I eat more than you. Lol.
People asking me how I can stay slim and healthy while eating such a lot of food?
I am in the same size for more than 30 years.
I weigh 52 kg, 5.5 feet. These numbers haven’t change for more than 30 years.
But to tell you the truth, I had trouble with eating habit when I was young, I was on a diet, all the time, because young girls supposed to be thin, didn’t know we are already thin!
To tell you the truth, I had trouble with eating habit…
It was late 80’s when I was a teenager, and the fat is considered as bad for your health, and we avoid taking it to stay slim.
I ate low fat food and I took low cal sugar substiture anytime I find it.
I was a firm believer in “low-calorie-diet-myth.”
I believed as less cal as I take in a day, I would be thinner and healthier for a long time.
These days, I was always hungry and always thinking about food.
But when I read this book, The Bulletproof Diet by Dave Asprey, it literally blew my mind. What? High-fat diet? 50 to 70 % of calories from fat?
I couldn’t believe it because it’s completely out of mind because it was on the opposite side of my diet.
But I was convinced of one of his logic “your brain is made of fat, so we should take more fat to be more creative and productive.”
And I start taking butter coffee in a morning, and its continuing for more than 5 years.
What I appreciate about butter coffee is, I am free from the hunger until lunch time.
I can concentrate on my job, and so productive ever!
I haven’t change any of my food intake, other than butter coffee.
I am on hybrid Diet
Because eating huge steak, or chicken without eating carb is not realistic in Japanese diet.
I am on a hybrid of Bulletproof diet and Japanese diet.
My daily activities & My daily meal
Let’s take a close look at my life from the aspect of food and daily activities.
6am: Cook Bento and Breakfast
My day start on 6 in the morning, to make my son’s bento and breakfast.
7:00 Feed my cat Alex
And I feed my cat Alex. He walk around me while I am in the kitchen, sometimes, interrupting me by jumping up on the table.
House keeping jobs
When my son leave for school, I do the laundry.
My son is on the baseball team, so I have a lot of dirty uniform every day.
I used to hate the laundry, but now, I appreciate it as I can feel I am spending a normal life like before the pandemic.
7:30 Butter coffee
While the washing machine running I take butter coffee and makeup. It takes less than 5 mins because I don’t make up bottom half of my face for wearing a face mask. Lol.
8:00 Clean the house and quick exercise
And then, I clean the house and do a short but effective excise. I believe a little goes a long way!
After that, I start working at home.
8:30~12:00 Work from home
It’s usually, developing new recipes for my customer, shooting videos and writing script.
Around 11:30 to 12:00, I eat lunch.
My lunch is like this.
Looks like breakfast. Lol.
I have been stop eating breakfast for 5 years but I still want to eat breakfast.
That’s my kind of meal!
And then, I go back to work!
4:00pm Coffee Break
And around 4 o’clock, I take a break.
When you work from home, we need something to cheer up for the rest of the day to keep our productivity.
I eat something sweet almost everyday with a cup of coffee, or tea depend on the mood.
And then I work for a couple of hours, and then, start preparing dinner.
Japanese typical dinner is like this.
I like to eat real food, which brings us nutrients and satisfaction.
What do you think of my everyday meal and daily activities?
I hope it doesn’t bored you. Lol.
I almost forgot to tell you how I keep myself hydrated.
I don’t drink water so much but green tea, roasted green tea or wheat tea. We can take vitamins and minerals from these tea.
I have so many varieties of tea and coffee to choose from.
Alright, that’s my version of what I eat in a day video!
I hope the video is giving you a tip to improve your diet somehow.
And I hope my cooking videos are helpful for our life is changing after the pandemic. We can’t go out for dinner for a while, but still we can make food what we want at home!
Please leave the comment if you have any questions.
I am not a strong believer of intermittent fasting, but this eating style works for me to stay comfortable.
