Dirty Keto and My Food Story! || Everyday Noms
Thanks for dropping by.
Welcome to the first video of Everyday Noms.
Today, I’ll share with you my food story
on how I get to where I am right now.
This recipe i’m sharing is ridiculously
simple – recipe and steps are on screen as
So let’s start from the beginning.
I grew up in Singapore with what is considered
a large family now.
2 younger sisters, mom, dad, cousin and both
Food has always been a
homey thing to me – we ate together a lot,
my aunts, uncles and cousins would come for
dinner almost everyday.
I was never a skinny kid but I wasn’t that
Pretty normal but when I was in secondary
school, I was sent to the TAF club or Trim
and Fit club.
It was also known to the kids as the FAT club.
As much as it was slightly embarrassing, I
enjoyed my time there as that was when I was
introduced to para-para dancing but that’s
another story for another time.
During my late teens, I decided to go vegetarian
cold turkey one day.
And basically kept that up for about 10 years.
In one of those years I went full vegan.
I thought I was fine being vegetarian though

or vegetarian diet over the Standard American
I’m open minded to better ways of living.
Whenever I think keto initially, I think of
this kind of food right here – but trust me,
the dirty keto living is not the way and I
will share more recipes that are way better
than this in the future.
To date, my husband and I have lost a total
of 50 pounds in 8 months!
And we did it with zero exercise.
I’m finally at the size where I can start
Will we stay forever in the ketogenic diet?
Probably not, we love bread and rice too much.
But we’re definitely more wary of the food
we consume and that is something that we will
take with us for the rest of our lives.
I really do think that the food we eat is
more important than exercise.
And especially if one is at a size where it’s
really difficult to work out, losing weight
first through food might be the only way out.
If you randomly came across this video and
you’re starting on a new and improved lifestyle,
I will you good luck and success.
