They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away. I’ve heard of this saying since time immemorial but I do not really know any scientific explanation for this. Well, I don’t really care about its scientific explanation because I do not contest that.
I am happy that I have already finished my annual physical exam with Maxicare and I have a fair result so to speak. My cholesterol is lower compared to what I had last year. Urinalysis, fecalysis, blood chemistry, ecg, pap smear etc have good results according to our company doctor. Luckily, I get so save few hundreds for not having medicines for high cholesterol. The only note the doctor pointed out is I am a little overweight. My body mass index does not compliment my built.
Being positive in mind, I am thinking of strategies on how I can improve my weight. Hope I can get a really good diet plan and that is what I am determined to do.

If there is a problem that is not well given attention but being complained about most of the time, I’d say its weight management. I am hardly not the only one. My feeling of being overweight started since I can’t remember when. All I remember is I was never the skinny one within my group of friends, in my class and amongst my cousins.
I am in my early 30′s and I have observed my friends younger that I am also think and feel like I used to when I was their age. Mind you, they are not as fat or obese that you can think of. Would you think that the feeling of being overweight is only within one self. But for me, it is always best to refer to the Body Mass Index chart. I hope I had referred to this before.
If you think suppressing appetite may be helpful to avoid having excess fat is the solution I agree with that. Thing is, how well will you do it. I made a quick research online and I stumble upon this list of five foods that will help you suppress appetite:
* Drinking water
* Green veggies such as lettuce, cabbage and other leafy vegetables
See reference here.
I will really try this myself. I have tried diet pills, capsules and tea like and coffee appetite suppressants, why not go something natural this time.

I feel like I am loosing weight now….its true…believe it or believe it. I think the effect of steriods I took at the start of the year if escaping me now. Too bad its only now it is happening. I have been bloated all year round because of this medecine, so you really can’t blame me if I have a love and hate feeling with steriod. There is really no best weight loss pills
if you are on steriods. I love steriod because I need it for my vocal chord nodule but I hate it because it makes me bloated.
My fruit diet also helped a lot. I hoard as much fruits as I can whenever I visit SM Department store in Makati on my way to the office. Thank God for the biggest refrigirator I have ever seen, my office is generous enough to give its employees a two door fridge to stock food good for one week consumption. Mind you, I can eat a whole watermelon and papaya in one day. Makes me full and not bloated at the same time. See these pictures, the one with my Lola and son was taken on Christmas of 2010. The one in the middle was during one of the parties we had on Christmas. One at the bottom is one friday meeting at the office.
