I’m surprised that there are still so many myths about breast cancer. In our internet driven society, it can be simple to discover facts and truths. So, in an effort to spread awareness, I wanted to discredit some more popular myths about I’ve heard about breast cancer.

Busy lives filled with fast-paced jobs, families, and hard-to-ignore temptations can make staying in shape feel impossible. Poor nutrition, bad habits, and lack of activity can will result in crummy health. If you’re ready to whip your body into its best shape ever, read on for tips that will make the process fun and easy.
I’m back to dieting! I’m doing it primarily because I’ve been feeling like shit and I’m tired of it. A bit of weight loss would be a great side effect, though!
(Let’s pretend that bag of Cheetos I wolfed down while writing this entry never happened.)
Because I never have time to meal plan and prepare food in the mornings, I’m doing the rounds of diet delivery services. For week 1, I turned to an old favorite: Diet Diva!
The unthinkable has happened: the word diet (or the battlecry “di nako magra-rice kahit kailan!!!”) is no longer part of my daily vocabulary.
It is the most liberating thing I have ever felt… ever!!!
To eat all the rice I want.
To eat an occasional bag of potato chips and not internally berate myself for it.
To go nuts with beer and not wail about my fratman’s gut for the next few days.
To re-consider stopping by McDonald’s on my way to the office not because it’s fattening, but because it’s shit food.
To have dessert.
It’s really great. I’ve gained some weight but I am oddly more comfortable with my body now. I think I just stopped caring! Someone’s always going to be fatter than I am anyway.
I still have terrible eating habits, though. Skipping meals, eating junk— that sort of thing.
This time around, I did Diet Diva just so I could eat like a healthy, normal person.
Here are the things the good folks at Diet Diva put in my tummy last week:
Breakfast: Wheat ensaymada with hot chocolate
Lunch: Beef casserole with red mountain rice
Dinner: Chicken adobo flakes with hard-boiled egg and brown rice
Snack: Vegetable crackers
This is pretty much my standard breakfast. I wake up and there’s two hard-boiled eggs on the table and the pseudo-bacon is cooking on the stove. My dad, who makes my breakfast and lunch, asked me this morning why I’m not sick of it by now. Truth is, I am; but it’s simple and has what I need— protein and fat.
