I'm a huge foodie and a big advocate of eating and enjoying life. I love food, and I do not believe in the word "diet.” When people want to slim down in order to look or to perform a certain way, I view it as an athlete would—by changing the concept of "dieting" to "making weight.” Think of it as a practical method to attain a certain image or goal and not as a psychological problem that affects various areas of your life.
I believe in eating every three hours with proportionally sized mini-meals. As soon as you wake up, eat a breakfast high in fiber, have your next meal three hours later, and so on. I do enjoy protein shakes in between my main meals of the day, and I do not eat three hours before I go to sleep.
As for what I typically eat, I actually do not enjoy unhealthy food. I eat mostly Asian food, plenty of noodles, rice, meat dishes (with just a little sauce), and soups. I don't enjoy fast food, deep fried food, or soda…no thank you!
