Lady with Tuban

I think I am the only one I know that doesn’t yet have a turban. Is it because I prefer to flaunt my hair or just because I don’t even know where to get one?

It is a New Year again and I know quite a number of us have listed ‘Weight loss’ as part of our 2017 resolutions. I was interested in weight loss when I was desperate to lose my post baby bod and even now after losing it I still keep a close eye on the happening trends in weight loss in case I ever need to lose weight.

Like a lot of people, I’m overwhelmed with the number of options out there and I always have to do a whole lot of research once I hear of another weight loss trend.

Do we have anyone with the notion that snacking debars weight management progress in the house today? Whoops! I guess it’s time for a rethink.

Weight loss isn’t about deprivation, you know. If you ask me, healthy snacking should be as mandatory as breakfast. You know why? When done right (in moderation with healthy choices), snacking isn’t “bad” as assumed. In fact, snacks give your body the fuel it needs in-between meals. Snacks help meet most of your nutritional needs. They also help curb hunger, so you don’t overeat at mealtimes.
