Why Is Sustainable Slimming Solution More Important Than A Quick Fix

Why Is Sustainable Slimming Solution More Important Than A Quick Fix

Hi Superfriends, 


I am sure a lot of you have gone through some sort of slimming journey – teatox, slimming pills, keto diet, intermittent fasting etc. With a vast weight loss plans out there, how do you know which one works?


To us, the key to slimming down should be aimed at making sure that you stay slim sustainably. In other words, you lose the weight once and for all without gaining it back. To achieve sustainable weight loss, you need to do it the correct, healthy way.

Why we recommend Quinoa as a starting point?

People are often extreme when it comes to weight loss or dieting. They sacrifice their meals, they give up their comfort food. The mindset they have is wrong. Losing weight doesn’t have to be a painful process. It can be a fun one, you just have to find one that suits your needs well.

This is precisely why Keto diet is not sustainable. Most of us are used to eating carbs. We like rice or bread or pasta. But what Keto suggests is to give them up completely in order to lose weight. While Keto works, it doesn’t mean it’s a good choice for your body.

Not only does your body and brain need carbs to function (yes, carbs is a necessary fuel for your body), some of us actually like to have an occasional sandwich or two. And that’s not wrong! By preventing yourself from eating what your body crave for, you’re creating an unhealthy relationship with food. In other words, you are forcing yourself to hate food (in this case, carbs) and that is the start of an eating disorder.

Hence, we introduced Quinoa. Quinoa is a complex carbs full of good nutrients like fiber and protein to feed your body, curb unhealthy cravings the right way. We explain further on why Quinoa is excellent for weight loss:

  1. Low in Calories
    Did you know that the calories from 1 plate nasi lemak = 3 Asian Quinoa Packs? In order to lose weight, some adopt a caloric deficit diet where they consume less than the recommended amount of calories in a day. This method works ONLY if you’re consuming low calorie ingredients that is nutritionally beneficial too.



    Example above: Avocados are much better nutritionally and is lower in calories as compared to butter. So instead of spreading butter on your morning toast, go for an avocado fruit. You are also getting the necessary unsaturated fat for your body to function.

    Most common misconception here is that low calories means it’s good. Not necessarily. A palm-sized salmon offers the same number of calories as a Magnum ice cream. We can guarantee you that despite the same no. of calories, salmon has more nutritional benefit than ice cream does.

  1. High in Fibre

    And the best part is Quinoa is naturally high in dietary fibre, and is a slowly digested carbohydrate. Its high dietary fibre content makes it satisfying, making you feel fuller and less likely to binge or eat unhealthy foods. In addition, dietary fibre also binds to fat and cholesterol, which causes your body to absorb less fat and cholesterol.

  1. High in Protein with essential amino acids

    As a complete protein, quinoa contains most of the essential amino acids (Goldman, 2014) – including the elusive lysine and isoleucine acids, which most other grains lack making it a good source of protein for vegetarians. It is also high in protein which takes up a longer time, effort and metabolism when consumed, which in turns burns more calories as a result when digesting it.


    This is why our HFFP Routine is centred on leading a high fat, fiber and protein diet because it is what your body needs while ensuring that your diet is naturally satisfying, convenient and healthy.
