I grew up in a family (my mother's side) that loves to eat. We eat when we're happy, sad, mad, lonely, afraid, bored and all other emotions. Occasions are celebrated lavishly... with food. It was no wonder I was chubby, if not real fat. My dear-departed Tiya Viring loves to cook food swimming in oil: adobong baboy (pork adobo), binagoongan baboy (pork stew in anchovies), pritong liempo (fried pork belly), chicharon (pork cracklings) and more. Thinking about these cholesterol-laden food makes my mouth water. The picture on your left was me at 10 years of age. This was the time that I started to gain weight due to over eating.

The high-fat diet of my relatives on my mother's side eventually took its toll. Diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, heart conditions and even cancer were contacted by some of my aunts, uncles and cousins. It is imperative that we moderate our fat intake. It is better to broil and grill than fry. It is better to go slow on salty and sweet foods too. Moderation is the key in food intake if you want to stay healthy.

  4. Due to high cholesterol levels, I've been working very hard to cut the fat out of my diet. It's not easy, but I'm finding some very good alternatives.

  5. Right. It's better to eat to live, than to live to eat. But most of us find that really hard!
