Intermittent Fasting

There are two things I like about Sunday in Papua New Guinea, the first being the day when there is almost no traffic on the roads and second, there’s a chance that you can be invited to a birthday party.

I like a traffic-less road and birthday parties!

As one might expect on a Sunday afternoon, the roads are indeed clear and the Sun is providing an excellent illumination that made this “selfie” of me really bright.  When driving around the streets of Papua New Guinea, it’s good to be observant. One of the things I find peculiar here is that there are lots of roundabouts in place of traffic lights. Runabouts are an economical alternative to traffic lights in that they don’t require an electricity to work and they instill discipline on the drivers.  


I’m following a strict diet these days and it involves an intermittent fasting. The definition of intermittent fasting is different on each of us and for me, it’s just skipping breakfast and eating a small amount of food during lunch, and going on a binge at night. The success of which depends on the nutritional values of the foods you eat.  For example, I eat nothing in breakfast and then I take a boiled egg, an apple and an orange for lunch. To make sure that I don’t get malnourished, I eat whatever I can eat at night.  Then the cycle continues throughout the next day. From 89 Kilos, I am now down to 83 Kilos in just 2 months.

Although I find it to be physically tormenting, I intend to keep this habit for, maybe, a year more.


Here’s me and Ryan during a night out at Duffy Harbor Side. Ryan used to have less body fats the first time he arrived in PNG. But eventually, sedentary lifestyle has caught up and made him grow cuter but bigger.

“Fat is wealth! Ho-ho-ho!” He used to joke around when someone says he’s not getting any thinner.


During Sundays, however, all of my dieting routines are suspended lest I’ll get tired of it. Sundays are more like of a reward day for going through a 6-day course of intermittent fasting. In one of those “reward days”, I cooked up a full American breakfast for me and some friends.

That’s all for today. Happy dieting everyone!
