Health Life | Diary 4: Packed Lunch, who’s thinking?


I never thought but do my lunch to go it’s been a very pleasant moment. I’m thinking to do this forever!

Because of the healthy snacks the second week in the restricted diet was quieter. Going to the office is easier to follow the 600 calorie diet.

I spend the day at my desk drinking water and my food options are the ones in the lunchbox. Actually, thermal bag, but I’d rather talk lunchbox because it’s cute.

I have also solemnly ignored the cakes that are always there in the office cup at breakfast time.

At home, everything changes and becomes much more difficult.

Every smell and every packet closed is a will. Especially over the weekend, with the options of gordice chasing me.

That’s why I hired a “personal chef” to make healthy lunch and dinner kings. It was the nutritionist’s recommendation and I wanted to test to see if it would really help the day to day.

The price of this kind of service frightens you at first sight.

But, I thought the kettles would be made just for me. Following the menu and all the specifications of the nutritionist. Respecting the preparation mode full of limitations and with quality ingredients.

It is more a luxury than practicality.

I need to associate this diet with pleasure, otherwise, the relationship with food is too complex. It loses its taste and can have emotional consequences.

Having a healthy food that respects the 600 calories of the diet and is still delicious is a “care” I gave.

It is that thing I am and I am not sick, I can not heal the body creating another problem for the future.

I could not do half the options that Chef Thais proposed. The diversity of dishes she made with few ingredients is incredible and I have enjoyed it very much.

I’m going to make a post with the menu and the evaluation of the dishes soon.

I’ve always had the lunchboxes with me, even when I go to my mother’s home to keep my focus.

This week it was easy to keep the diet, even with the sweet tooth.

The realization of the time is how people check the food of those who are above or below weight right? It’s not even to help, see.

Everybody bother me with the size of my packed lunch. At home, at work, in life. I can not take it anymore, in the cafeteria, in the lunch, in the lunch: “Are you going to eat ONLY that?” With those wide eyes. Worse, the person continues: “My God you’re going to die, change the doctors!”

When I ate everything I was called a dredger, the false lean, the one who gave PT in the kilo (BR name to a kind of restaurant), had solitary in the belly, came from Ethiopia…

Healthy Packed Lunch - are you going to eat this?

close, no one asks how I feel or if my exams have improved. Who thinks health is only the body on the outside and not inside, right? I remembered a text that I read in Portal Roots and talks about emotional health and how it affects physical health (click).

Ah, in the last consultation I lost 2,100 kg, totaling 3,100 kg in 2 weeks.

Next week I’ll come back with another diary and some more complaint from non-sense people 😀

Healthy Life | Diary 3-first week with 600 calories a day!

vida saudável 600 calorias por dia

The post title might be: WHY I STARTED THIS DIET? (uppercase because I’m yelling at me).

I made notes of that first week eating only 600 calories a day, the diary 3 is to tell how my body and my mind are reacting to this sudden change in food.

In the previous post I mentioned that my head was confused and so I stayed the whole week. As if I had changed my operating system from Linux to Windows. The compromised data processing processes slow and error, all locking.

My head was injured but, other than that the worst was feeling hungry. If I could I would eat a little bit every 1:30, but may not have to wait 3 hours to eat a tiquinhozinho of nothing new.

As I started the diet on Saturday (11/12/2016), we had the holiday wedding anniversary lunch chosen by nutri and I stayed 4 days at home. 4 days looking at my cereal bars with chocolate, my cans of condensed milk and eating tasteless food.


Even seasoning with everything he can: garlic, onion, pepper, nothing made the food look hot. I don’t eat (ate) salad so the worst part was used to the taste buds with green leaves, the only thing free amount in the diet.

When I got back to work and the routine I felt less hungry throughout the day, but the pot of chicken was still difficult to eat. Chicken is the protein easier to do after the egg. Egg that I can only eat the egg that also has no taste.

Who says it’s easy to maintain a diet of 600 calories a day, that’s crazy. Maybe get easier over time, but the early days were almost torture. I had dizziness, nausea, vomited and I thought I was overloading my body for nothing (like the other times I’ve tartei with disrupters).

I had the urge to eat this week? Everything, sweet, salty, rice, beans, meat, cake. All I felt the smell my stomach jumped desiring. But surprisingly I didn’t feel like milk or soda, point for me.

I left the diet only in the day of my wedding anniversary, ate some candy for dessert, very little. But, huh? Shouldn’t.

In return with the Nutritionist, she explained that the reduction of carbohydrates cause the symptoms of dizziness, slow, nausea. As it was nothing exaggerated, was not reason for changing the diet.

The doctor’s expectation was that I would eliminate 2kgs in a week, but I lost just 1 kg. It could have been that little bit of dessert I ate? Can! But it could also be my metabolism is well slowed, according to the bioimpedance.

Until my return was pretty emotional, motivated, but the possibility of my body take to respond to diet, health does not improve as fast as promised, made me really so angry with life.

I’m not even going to talk about the fact the Nutri asking if I was pregnant because of my symptoms are all morning. The annoying thing to have to answer that kind of question.

I left the Office sad and discouraged, think about the other doctors I went through and I still have some tests to do. Maybe these tests help to understand why I don’t lose weight and my metabolism so slow.

But, in this first week with the diet of 600 calories what most annoyed me was the question: are you on a diet? With that look of contempt or curiosity, as if it were something funny or ridiculous.

When someone sees my marmitinhas comes the question and mentally I answer like this:

600 calories a day diet Meme

You can see that my mood zero tolerance didn’t abandon me, huh? Good, now I’m living better the second week with more strength and resilience.

Healthy Life | 2 Diary: exams and consultations, many questions

My quest for healthy life began with a decision and went through a marathon of examinations and consultations.

I started with simple attitudes to change habits, but have medical support was essential.

Especially, 1 years here, when my body started showing signs that needed urgent care. I had a lot of questions that needed to be answered.

It took me to find the right doctors, just this week I was in 3 different doctors, endocrinologist, nutritionist and gynecologist. Not to mention the return queries on previous doctors.

It’s no exaggeration to call marathon tests and consultations, I lost count, turned me upside down and cavucaram every corner of my body.

It’s not very nice, but for the first time in my life, I’m sure the medical team I picked. Not by the names attached to it, but throughout the process that made me get this far.

I asked you to do some tests, I collected my medical history and went from doctor to doctor showing and asking.

Only when I felt really safe I started the treatment focused on picking a healthy life starting with the reeducation of eating habits.

Hormonal/emotional/physical problems are not easy, mess with things we can’t even imagine. For example, our energy, our moods, our desire to live.

It is not uncommon for women with hormonal problems having bouts of anxiety, depression, fatigue and weight gain.

Even knowing that when it happens with us is a shock. Even more because, in my case, theoretically my hormones are controlled by medication.

But nothing in the human body is accurate, every body is a body and never know how my body can react or not the right treatment.

So feel safe was important in that process. Because it’s a change of mine, I don’t want to make room for anyone to question.

I’m not explaining details of my health/life. So, in 10 years of blogging I’ve never posted on a lot of things.

Even at home, I avoid commenting too. Especially, the age and health of my mother, I don’t want to worry her. With the tests and consultations, my routine at home changing I end up giving one or another explanation.

But, I know that too much space leads to questions/unpleasant conclusions. Now, I’m not in the mood to answer, because my doctors did not respond. so …

In the end, I supported the doctors and me, to not give up and control the fear and anxiety. And I’m going relatively well, I think.

I found this confusing text, but I think it’s the fault of food restriction. But, who said a diary need to make sense, right?

Be back soon with more updates organized this process:)

How to start dietary re-education?


When I decided to start the reeducation of eating habits, I knew it wouldn’t be easy.

But, if you came here thinking they’ll get tips already, hard-to-reach steps know that my dietary re-education is far less complicated than many people preach around.

I was “too thin”, with 1.70 m already weighed less than 45 kg and had difficulty gaining weight.

But, with age, the life and hormones crazy won 25 kgs. Of these 25 kg, 15 kg are above the indicated for my body type.

I feel huge, dead tired, sleepy and have a hunger for 10 caged Lions.

These symptoms are a warning, but turned up health problems and allergies that made my life change a pressing need.

  • Changing habits:

To start the reeducation of eating habits I had to take the decision to change my habits. Little by little, I identified the villains of my life and got everything (really).

My worst habits were drinking a lot of soda, eating too much sweet, don’t make every meal a day and sleeping less than 5 hours.

When I say a lot was very even. I drank at least 600 ml of soda a day, plus a sweet quantity equivalent to 1 kg of refined sugar.

After weeks of denial, I went to the second stage.

  • Seeking a professional:

Do medical follow-up with examinations regularly, but this journey started the reeducation of eating habits have a nutritionist was what changed me.

The search was not easy, with much research I came to the indication of a great nutritionist who changed my way of looking at food. She explained every detail of my feed and how I could improve it.

Then came the hardest part: the homework. When I had to put into practice the changes alone.

I started doing simple things that everyone can follow day to day:

  • Replace coffee for tea. Take a maximum of 3 small cups of coffee a day.
  • Decrease the soda, taking only 4 cups on the weekends.
  • Decrease the refined sugar in all things.
  • Change the common chocolate 80% cocoa chocolate.
  • Drink more water every day.

As I always lunch in a restaurant, I’ve been eating salad and avoid sausages and fast food. I started to cook quick dishes at home, to prevent the delivery of pizza.

It seems a small thing, but it was a very difficult process for me. I have a palate well childish and I don’t like to associate food with suffering. But, with these simple changes I lost 3 kg in 3 months, without suffering and without starving.

Oh, I still like candy, hamburgers and all that I love, but with a lot more balance!

I’m still on another journey to complete my dietary re-education: find a physical activity that I love. Hopefully, soon, more here!
