Losing weight in a shortest possible time

Ok…I am not going to load you with tonnes of essay on how to loss weigh. If you need details just do a Google search.

Well I am sharing this based on my own personal experience and it took me roughly 6 months. Know this, we all have peculiar bodies so you need to know yours. Meaning there can be variations on how individual body respond. I was able to replicate this method over time and it worked for me. So let dive in.

I am a black male of Africa decent in my early thirties. No alcohol nor smoking. I easily gain weight when my body is relax, plus when my mind and brain is cool with little or no activities. When I started, I was weighing 82kg with protunding tummy and fat all over. I am a researcher and I am constantly doing a lot of brain work which I considered a big factor in this approach.

Step one..Eat once a day…yes once a day…and I repeat..once day. I must tell you it is going to be difficult as hell. Your body is going to fight you on this. So you must be ready. What happens afterwards…this is how you will know your body is responding to the diet change, the rate at which you go toilet will reduce. You go from 3 toilets per day to 2 to 1 toilet per day. If you notice this trend, good for you and it just the beginning. If you really follow this you should get to a point where you  go from a day to a week without going to the toilet. Now, to some of you…this is crazy..a week without going to the toilet? until you try you can’t know what your body is capable of. By this time you should have start noticing some drop in weight. Also make sure you make drinking  water your best pal.

Step two…Don’t be idle. Get some activities going. I recommend activities that get your brain working on a full capacity. These are my high energy capacity activator for the brain: thinking to solve a problem, lectures, research, writing for grants and articles. The only time your brain get to rest is when you sleep. You will need to find your own high brain energy activator. This is how it works for me. Better still get engrossed in activities that makes you skip meals.

That’s all 2 steps approach. Do share your experience if you managed to try this approach and it works (didn’t work) for you.

All the best and happy losing weight.

Food and Cancer

It is no news that cancer is the second leading causes of death in the world. In 2015, it accounted for about 8.8 million deaths. Cancer arises when normal cells are transformed into tumors cells in a multi-staged process that progresses from pre-cancerous lesion to malignant tumor. The five common types of cancer are lung, stomach, colorectal, liver and breast.


Risk factors for cancer includes; dietary factors, obesity/overweight, tobacco use, alcohol use, physical inactivity, and environmental (exposure to radiation). All these factors are modifiable and can therefore reduce the burden of cancer.


Carbohydrate: Although studies have not shown consensus on the role of carbohydrate in cancer, however, some studies have suggested that high intake of dietary fibre (complex carbohydrate) can reduce the risk of colorectal cancer. The proposed mechanism of action is that dietary fibre works by facilitating the transition of food through the large intestine by fermentation the food to short chain fatty acid which may induce apoptosis, promotes cell differentiation and inhibits secondary bile acid production (Key & Spencer, 2007). Research has also suggested that high sucrose and lactose intake may increase the risk for the development of colorectal and ovarian cancer respectively.

Fat: Increased dietary fat may lead to overweight/obesity which is a risk factor for the development of colorectal cancer and breast cancer. Overweight /obesity increases endogenous estrogen level in postmenopausal women and this may explain the high risk of postmenopausal breast and endometrial cancer for women. Furthermore, hyperinsulinemia associated with obesity/overweight may also increases the risk for colon cancer (Key et al., 2004).

Fruits and vegetables: Fruits and vegetable are high in nutrients that have been suggested to protect against cancer development. They are good sources of vitamins, fibre, and antioxidants. Studies have shown that high intake of antioxidant rich food is inversely related to cancer risk. Antioxidants helps reverse the damage caused by free radicals to normal cells. They also induce cell apoptosis in cancer cells preventing angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels) and metastasis (spread of cancer cells). This proposed mechanism of action has made suggestion for antioxidants to be used as adjuvants in cancer therapy.

Tips for cancer prevention 

  • Tobacco control
  • Healthy diet which is to include a lots of fruits and vegetables
  • Preventing harmful alcohol usage
  • Reduced exposure to radiation
