the "a few drinks" part is not advisable.

IMO, when dieting, we must watch the quantity of everything we eat or drink, however low calories it may be.

Try taking smal sips and drink only when really have to.

Best alcoholic beverages for someone who is dieting? I am dieting but still like to go out drinking every week. What are the best drinks to order that are a little lower in calories so I don't completely sabbotage my diet?

对酒精说“不”

无论是啤酒、鸡尾酒、白酒,还是其他形式的酒精饮料,都可能让你面部浮肿和皮肤松弛。

此外,酒精饮料的热量很高,仅一杯200ml左右的酒精饮料,热量便可达到100千卡。

Personally, breastfeeding is the easiest way. Too bad I stop BF my ds at 7months..that was when I had the last 5kg.

I am still trying to shed it off but because of work schedule, it is difficult. Exercise is still crucial for the last 5kg. What I am doing now is to take lots of fruits and vege and tries to reduce the carbohydrates. It works..At least managed to shed off 2kg. :D

Hi, my girl now 11 yrs old, used to be a very plump kid. Just before she enters P1, I was worried that she would be sent to the tough club so during the yr end sch hols, I make her climb the staircase daily. We climbed 13 storeys up only (heard ppl say climbing dwn will hurt the knee) 3X continuously daily for abt 2 mths. In the end, she slim down a lot & her clothing size went dwn by 2 sizes. As I oso climbed with her, I felt my body tone up too. My wt is <50kg so I didn't lost wt but tone up especially at the buttock area. So whenever ppl ask me wat's a gd way to loose wt, I always tell them climb the staircase, it's hassle free.

For me, also breastfeeding is the best way to slim down.

However, after dd1, after I stop breastfeeding, I did put on a bit of weight. So I stopped supper, cut down on rice and noodles. Just eat more vege and fruits. But not very good, since I don't exercise. No discipline at all.

Now, for dd2, although I am breastfeeding, but have not shed off all the extra kilos. I am going to try Lacto Fiber to see if it will helps. Because my friend tried it and she quite like it. Although she has not lose much weight but at least she is not putting more since during the festive season, she just keep eating and she doesn't control her diet at all. In fact, she still eats a lot of 'unhealthy' food. So she is happy that she lose a little bit and does not put on extra when she continues eating so much. :D
