♥ My country, Malaysia is currently the FATTEST country in South East Asia. It’s sad! Most of us aren’t aware of how bad a food can be for us because we are used to eating this way. Or perhaps we just don’t care!
♥ Let’s stop this OBESITY epidemic worldwide and look at how we can make healthier food choices and still enjoy our local dishes when eating out.

Joei Azizi says:

Don't count those calories or fat. Fat doesn't make you fat. Rice and wheat will make you more fat than fat. Sugar makes you fat than fat. Eat healthy fat like coconut virgin oil, clarified butter like ghee, olive oil. Those kinds of fat make you feel full and you won't snack. Eat more fresh greens. Go ketogenic. I consume lots of healthy fat even in my coffee. My waistline went from 36 to 34 and on the way to 33. I know Malaysian if don't eat rice they feel like dying. So eat shirataki rice or noodle or konjac. Only 1g of carb and calorie. No need to go to Japan and buy it. There is a Malaysian brand called KURUS.

Watson Yek Wah Sheng says:

If it's delicious, is probably packed with loads of sugar and oils. If it isn't delicious, is either it is healthy food, or the cook is amateur.
