I've just been curious. Most people has been very conscious about their health, usually when you get older. Then I remember in my previous job that almost all my coworkers are so conscious that they sometimes do not eat at all because they comment that they are gaining too much weight, but in my point of view I see that they look fine and are actually underweight. I see this alot in my job as I work nights but because of this low blood pressure has been a common sickness, some have even fainted during work. What do you guys think is the best diet regimen without sacrificing too much of your meal?

Some vegetables and fruits are acidic as well, just take a moderate amount of fruits and more of vege and make a replacement for your rice intake which is healthier. My mom would take herbal drink as a replacement for rice but can sustain her sugar intake.

I do not agree with totally not eating or skipping meals or those crash diets because they are not good for the body. It is okay to eat any food you want as long as you eat in moderation. The problem with other people is that the overeat. Having at least one serving of fruit every day is also good for the body. My eating habits include cornflakes and nonfat milk, fruit for breakfast, i avoid carbonated drinks as much as possible and drink lots of water or fruit juice instead. But on weekends, I treat myself to fastfoods like burgers or french fries or pizza.

I totally agree with you. It's just a little weird seeing someone only eat a spoonful of vegetable during lunchtime and still live until the next day. If it were me I would probably have fainted due to hunger. Thanks so much for the response.

Eat according to taste. Intake must be huge breakfast, just enough lunch, and minimal supper. Snacks must be taken only when one feels hungry. Dieticians prescribe fruits and vegetables but meat, fish and rice are necessary. You are what you eat. If you pump in canned goods, colas, candies and the like, you might as well call yourself a junkie. You can only be healthy as what you want yourself to be.
