Cekodok

No, cekodok is not my favourite food. This entry is not about cekodok the food, or cekodok recipe. It's about health management.

Sorry to disappoint you. Hehe.

i'd like to share with you about cekodok.com. (Cekodok dot com)

Recently i've been obsessed with my weight. i changed the way i eat, what i eat, the timing of my snacks and meals, i workout. Don't get me wrong, i'm not on a strict diet. i'm just extra careful now.

*thinking of Megan Fox's body*

It was hard being a Malaysian you know. All those nasi lemak, char kuey teow, mee kari are IRRESISTABLE. And it's hard to track down how many calories there are in those foods.

It was hard until i found this:


A website dedicated especially for us Malaysians. It has a database of Malaysian foods complete with calorie, fat, carbo, and protein contents. For example let's say i wanna know the nutrition facts of spaghetti Carbonara, i'll type "carbonara" in the search box, and choose one result i think best suits my search. The result will appear like this:





Not only that, the website has an application where we can actually plan our daily meal. That way we can see what we will get out of that meal.Trust me, it'll make you lose appetite when you see how much calorie you put in your body every single day. As an example, this is my meal today and how much calories i consumed.


Clearly my meals don't have balanced nutritions. More fat than protein.
*cry blood*

It also teaches us to calculate our Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) and Daily Calorie Requirement (DCR). These two alien things are calculated based on our weight, height and age. Thus, we can determine our calorie needs per day and makes us don't wanna eat.

Though it doesn't have information on every single food on Earth, it can helps us improve the way we eat. i'm determined to watch what i eat, but at the same time still enjoy and indulge myself with sinful yummy things. Everything in moderation, bebeh!
