Hello,

Once again,I just want to simplify this bit of science because it took me so long to figure it out myself. For the better part of my fitness journey, I was avoiding carbohydrates a lot.There was a time when I stopped eating ugali and rice for three weeks. I stopped to think, what the hell am I doing? I cannot do this all my life for sure. I lost a lot of weight during that time but I really missed a good meal. Continue reading “The Role of a Low-Carbohydrate Diet in Weight Loss”

Are you the perfect weight for your height?

On a personal level, I stopped checking my weight because the fitness journey is not about losing weight anymore. I however know that it fluctuates somewhere between 56-58 kg since I was consistent in weighing myself during the first three months..My height is 1.5 meters.

You can use your body mass index to determine whether you are overweight, underweight or obese. This will help you assess your health and estimate the risks. Unhealthy weight, both overweight and underweight can be a predisposing factor to some diseases which we will look at in our next posts.

It’s done and I painfully accept defeat.
