    Default ....used to be overweight....still am

    Hiee...

    When i was in primary school...i was referred to school heath department clinic for "obesity"....from ther i learn that a normal can drink has energy equivalent to two plate of rice.

    So for one plate chicken rice...just imaging imagine drinking 1/2 can drink + adding two teaspoonful of saturated fats (especially for chicken breast )and also the extra flavor enhancers. Hainanese chicken rice may have less fats...in general....as the chicken is boil....BUT the chicken broth may be poured into the rice when cooking..... so...comes back tot he same....

    hmm.......i am hungy already...

    regards,
    me

    Seriously, jokes aside, you can eat many things, but not of them are good for you. chicken rice is, beside being high in fat content, is also high in cholesterol.

    The amazing and miraculous gift we have, is how much punishment the human body can take. Internally, every thing we consume has harmful toxins, acids, chemical and minerals that are being flushed out everyday.

    Some people can continue to take clams, oysters, shellfish, fried chicken, burgers, fries, coke and coffee everyday without *looking* sick and unhealthy. You can see that and think "hey, that is OK, he is fine so i wil be too!"

    But there comes a time when the machine breaks down after wear and tear. You have only one body, take care of it more than you would your camera

    Thanks! This website has all the information I need!

    From the info, it seems to me that the average Singaporean diet:

    (1) does not provide sufficient calories (2000 kcal/day), and

    (2) contains too much fat!

    Time to bring tuna sandwich to work everyday and cut down on chicken rice.
