I am quick to realise that it is not easy to stick to my plan when I am eating out. Generally our nation is a sugar and high processed carbo eating nation. Go out to any food court and you will get dishes with rice, mee hoon, potato chips as either the must thing or as an enticing side dish.

My newest strategy: prepare my own snacks- started yesterday, Thursday.
I have this Tupperware which is divided into 3 compartments. I put colourful food high in fibre with different tastes into it. It can be prepared at night and kept in the fridge.
