Updated: Jan 23



We know you're in the process of getting ready for Festivities. You've got your favourite outfit picked out, you're excited about seeing all your friends and family, and you want to wow them on how good you look now that the pandemic is over.


While you strive to shed those extra pounds, we want to make sure you do it the healthy way! So this year, Team Vitamode would like to share with you our healthy eating tips (and no it's not meant to starve you).


Who says healthy can't be delicious? Take a look at the mouthwatering healthy recipes!

Eating Healthy Is The Key To The Right Diet

Dieting is not easy. Some people may not be able to stick with a low-carb diet because of cravings or other issues. Others may find that they like the results they get from eating less processed foods but need help sticking to it long term. So don't try to eat less or exercise more, just make sure you are getting proper nutrition in a way that works for you.


You can begin by setting how many calories you consume per day and then choose a diet style based on your goal. Try consuming fewer calories than what your body uses up in a day. However, it is important that you do not create such a large calorie deficit that you lose too much weight at once or harm your body by starving yourself. Thus, it is recommended to start off slowly and try to eat only 200-300 fewer calories than what you normally consume each day. This should result in losing about 0.45 kg per week which will be healthy and sustainable for your body to lose weight at this rate.


Choose a balanced diet and eat fresh fruits and vegetables. You can also add nuts or seeds for added protein. Make sure that you include whole grains, lean meat, poultry, fish, or legumes in your meals.


A well-rounded meal plan will help you get the nutrients you need for your body to function properly, maintain energy levels and enable you to burn fat more efficiently. It is important to be aware of what food is good for your metabolism as well as what food should be avoided at all costs when trying to lose weight.


Do Little Things That Keep Your Body Thriving

It's easy to get caught up in the big things in life. We obsess over our work, our relationships and our finances. But when it comes down to it, you can lose weight on just about any diet, as long you're in a caloric deficit (that is, you burn more calories than you consume).


Do little things that keep your body thriving. These little things can boost your mood — like going for a walk, giving the car a good scrub, or riding your bike for 30 minutes a day. You don't need to exercise vigorously every day to keep your body healthy and fit. Just keep moving! Of course, having the benefits of exercising helps improve circulation and releases "feel-good" chemicals that help improve mood and lower stress levels.


Avoiding sedentary behavior (such as sitting) is also important for good health — so take breaks throughout the day to stretch or stand up from your desk or computer whenever possible!


Try Superfoods!

Who doesn’t love a good "Ramly Burger"? They are delicious, easy to get and everyone loves them. But what if you could enjoy your favourite burger with the added benefits of superfoods?


Superfoods have been shown to have a positive impact on health and well-being. They are rich in nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, and other components that boost immunity and give you many health benefits.


The best part about these foods is you could even enjoy the same taste without all that fat and calories. You can incorporate superfoods into your diet, try adding them to your breakfast, lunch or dinner, or even your favourite "snack" throughout the day.


If you are planning to incorporate superfoods into your food prep, you could get some ideas by visiting some of these favourite health food outlets in Malaysia to get a first hand taste!



Go Easy On Your Bubble Tea And Teh Tarik Routine

Sugar is one of the main contributors of fats. Building up to a no-sugar diet can help a person retrain the palate, meaning that they are less likely to crave the missing sugar.


You can start by reducing them gradually. For example, if you normally eat two cookies with your coffee every day, cut it down to one cookie and add fruit instead of the second cookie. If you usually have two slices of cake with ice cream for dessert every Friday night, cut it down to one slice and add fruit instead of the second slice.


Once you are able to cut out extra sweets from your diet for one week straight, try eliminating them entirely for two weeks at a time before reintroducing them again.


Buddy up with a friend or colleague with diet and weight loss resolutions

This is the time of year when many people resolve to lose weight or eat healthier. If you're one of them, consider teaming up with a friend or colleague who's also trying to shed some weight.


You'll have someone to help keep you on track and who can provide moral support when you're feeling low. You'll also have someone to share success stories with when you're feeling good about your progress. And a buddy can help keep you motivated by setting goals that are mutually supportive.


Here are some ways to make the most of your partnership:

  • Have regular check-ins.

  • Find a partner who's committed to making healthy changes in their own life, and pick someone who's ready to share their successes and setbacks with you along the way.

  • Make sure each person sets weekly goals and then discusses how they did each week, both successes and failures.
