Tip 3: eat rice*.
did you know that you could eat very little in general and still be on the heavier side? if so, you belong to the "spleen qi deficient" category.
lack of focus
shortness of breath
underweight or *overweight*
yellowish or pale skin tone
you don't look beautiful with the above descriptions, do you?
'qi' derives from the traditional chinese character "氣". can you see the little "米“ (aka rice) hidden below the "气“? yes, this means that in order to have 'qi' (or energy, but it is not all-encompassing, the real meaning is lost in translation and i find it hard to translate it), you will need to eat rice. see how wise and cute our ancestors were with their words?
according to the ancient esoteric scripture of the yellow emperor, ”五谷为养，五果为助，五畜为益，五菜为充**”，where the five "grains" refer to rice, millet, sesame, wheat and beans. therefore, if you are 'qi' deficient, one of the ways to tonify 'qi' is to include grains, or the staple rice, in your daily diet. i understand many have lost a lot of weight in a short period of time simply by cutting out rice entirely, but this is not sustainable. some ended up bingeing on rice and carbohydrates eventually because, well, your body craves for them. rice is nutritious by nature.
therefore, keep calm and eat rice. seriously. you can eat rice and remain slim wan. we are not angmohs also, eat meat and potatoes every day. majority of the japanese and thais consume rice and they are so skinny. eat slowly and enjoy your meals. you will look more graceful and beautiful that way too.
*in moderation, of course.
**salad by itself is not a meal.
