My personal story…..

I still remember vividly in my mind that when I was around 4 years old. I used to walk to the lolly shop, which was just located right next door to my home to buy lollies. I’d ate lollies and chocolates all day and often refused to eat dinner because I’d lost my appetite. I had tooth decay and was hyperactive. It also didn’t help that I was bottle-fed with sugary milo drinks 2-3 times a day… I don’t blame my parents. Coming from a small rural town back then, most of us didn’t really know any better about food and nutrition.

When I entered high school as a teenager, I became very conscious about my weight and body image leading to feelings of insecurity about my body. I tried all strategies wanting to lose the baby fat that has wrapped around my arms and thighs. I tried to starve myself from time to time with the thought that eating very little would make me look skinnier. I even tried taking laxatives and slimming pills to lose weight. As with any unhealthy means to lose weight, excessive calorie restriction without a good understanding of how foods affect my weight did not work. This unhealthy relationship of food and body image led to greater cravings for more sugary junk foods.

 Years later I realised that I had a sugar addiction. Yes, believe it or not, I was overloaded with sugar during my earlier stage of life. Most people may not know it, but sugar has the same detrimental effect on the brain as cocaine (That Sugarbook). Yes, sugar has caused so much damage to my health during my childhood, without me or my parents even knowing it. That was one of the main reasons why I was not able to eat properly, and never succeeded in weight loss despite of eating less.  

I was a sugar addict...

Turning point in life…

I quit my job and went on pursuing my dream to be a dietitian...
