Have you ever noticed how, normally, the Thai are remarkably slender? This is because their diet is very healthy, being afflicted with very little butter, cream, and dairy products, and high on vegetables, fruits, and herbs with excellent nutrient worth. Try these foods, either cooked in home or bought in a restaurant in Thailand, and you’ll very quickly feel the difference in your wellbeing and overall feeling of well-being! Within two weeks you will, as long as you remain strictly within these suggestions, start shedding pounds or kilograms even in the event that you do very little to no exercise (though obviously a fantastic dietary program always has to be encouraged by exercise, particular exercises which highlight raising heart rate).

Thai salads

These aren’t the salads you’re utilised to. The sad fact of things is that, while many people assume cakes would be the reply to reducing weight, salads generally aren’t as healthy as you’d like: frequently the greens are of low quality but more importantly, the additives used tend to be full of saturated fats and the dreaded carbohydrates. Worse yet, examine the pieces of bacon (!) and cheese in your Caesar salad. There’s mayonnaise on your thousand island, corn syrup on your Italian dressing, mayonnaise again on your ranch dressing, etc. Not exactly slimming.

With Thai salads, but the title “salad” is something of a misnomer and only slightly related to the western counterpart: Thai salads is made from fresh vegetables, fruits, and cooked meat flavored not with additives but with quite a few condiments. What makes them special is these condiments are normally fairly low-key on the “forbidden food” scale: they include fish sauce, soy sauce, a good helping of lemon or lime juice, a little sugar and some chili powder. But beyond that it is absolute wellness, as ingredients operate to cucumbers, onions, garlics, and diced chili peppers. No avocado, no dairy products, no cheese or bacon. There’s a vast variety to select from, too, beginning from the better-known”som tum” (cherry with dried beans, tomato, and peanuts in addition to the above condiments) to the exotic. The worst you will need to fear from is sugar, but actual sugar is normally used over horrors like corn syrup.

Main dishes

Soups? Tom-yam gung is a fantastic alternative, because it’s mostly heavy on tomato, shrimps, and lime over anything else (and the fish can be substituted with minced pork, chicken, or beef substitute of your choice). Gang jeud is similarly a fine choice because it’s merely a soup with seaweed, carrots, white cabbage, tofu and minced pork gently flavored.

Additionally, there are several fish dishes which you may wish to consider, and what is known to the Thais as “nam prik”: extremely flavorful pastes eaten with rice, boiled egg, and boiled vegetables. There are a large number of recipes, most of which are vegetarian-friendly. They also have a tendency to be incredibly spicy, however. If you are not up for this, then perhaps a stuffed omelet will do just as well (stuffing is usually several kinds of vegetable and mushrooms and minced pork but, again, the pork is completely optional). Provided that you skip the rice, the meal will be mostly free of bad fats and carbohydrates. Finally, there are delicious stir-fry vegetable dishes, such as hot morning glory stir fry or glass cabbage stir fry in oyster sauce.


Sit down in a Thai restaurant and, if it is a proper one (for taste, one that is actually located in Thailand would be a great start), you’re likely to find on the drinks menu an assortment of herbal beverages that-unlike what you’re used to-tend toward fruity and tasty instead of bland or bitter. Examples are citronella juice, red roselle juice, chrysanthemum juice, and much more. Fruit beverages include guava, lime, passionfruit, tamarind, Chinese apricot, and much more: all these aren’t only nutritious but delicious, and perfectly matches your low-carb diet program. Red roselle, by way of instance, has a great portion of protein; lemongrass is an exceptional source of magnesium, zinc, copper, iron, potassium and manganese; tamarind provides non-starch polysaccharides, dietary fibers, tartaric acid, and many minerals; passionfruit juice reduces cancer cell development, contains huge amounts of Vitamin C and Vitamin A, and ultimately chrysanthemum brings various vitamins and minerals.
