  • Gingerbeardman - already noticing the difference

    https://gingerbeardmansite.wordpress...he-difference/

    Umar ibn Al Khattab (radiallahu anhu) saw a man with a huge belly and said: “What is this?” He said, “A blessing from Allah.” He said, “Rather it is a punishment from Allah.”

    Manaaqib Ameer al-Mu’mineen, p.200

    Assalaamu Alaykum brothers and sisters,

    Those who have known me for a while know I occasionally go on a diet regime, it lasts for a short time, somewhere between weeks to months, I lose some weight, I do walk a lot anyway, so I do a little bit more exercise, eat healthily ish but soon enough I slack off and my big fat reserves and and overly large waistline comes back again within a few months or at most a year.

    I’m overweight and terrible at dieting and worse at getting around to exercise, it’s not good, and it’s certainly not Islamic to be so badly out of shape but it is what it is and it’s my burden to be dealing with....

      "Overweight Orangutans" might beat out "Giraffe with Dwarfism" as my favourite animals to Google.

      Well done for the lifestyle change - as with most things, consistency is key :up:

        Try googling the Irriwaddy Dolphin, Blob Fish, The Gerenuk.

        All strange and wonderful creatures.

          I looked at the Gerenuk - it looks like a camel and a deer's love child :inlove:

          Iyo waa soomali :) I'm gonna capture one when I go back to the motherland inshaAllah.

                  Yes it is. The word gerenuk itself is derived from the Somali word Garanuug, which means giraffe-necked.

                  And what will you do with it after you capture it, Eenie? It better not end up on your dinner plate!

                    Nooooo way - never on my plate! I'll keep it as my pet of course :inlove:

                    I'm going to open up my own zoo full of wild and exotic animals found and captured from the depths of our warm Indian ocean, from the greens of our lush Savannas and from the edges of our rocky mountains. Gotta catch 'em all! POKEMON!

                    But for real if people are allowed to have dogs that are bigger than their toddlers, I don't see why I can't have a garanuug.

                        Eat Sunnah!

                        It's impossible to follow a sunnah diet and be overweight.

                          I commend you for trying brother, it's not easy that's for sure.

                          I have some tips if you want, and these are just personal anecdotes, not a doctor's order. Again, this is what's working for me, and obviously every journey is different, but just in case you are interested, here are my methods; if you do not like any advice please refrain from looking at this, I don't want to be that person who gives unwanted advice.


                          1. In my opinion the most important aspect is FOOD CHOICES! When I used to work out, my appetite would increase drastically, which is why I now do more sensible 'workouts' such as walking, and overall moving around more often. However, exercise is EXTREMELY beneficial, I just ended up with a lot of injuries due to poor form.

                          2. Try to fast Mondays and Thursdays as nafil as the Prophet SAAWS did. Fasting has many benefits alhamdulillah and the biggest one is pleasing Allah SWT.

                          3. Make food a survival item! Don't use it as a coping item or a solution for boredom. If you keep yourself busy, think of "doing stuff now, food later" mentality. Try to just think of it "I eat so I can do stuff". Find some hobbies, enroll in classes, take up extra shifts if you want. Anything that will keep you busy, plus it's also being productive, which in sha' Allah is a good thing!

                          4.Don't limit yourself to healthy foods, that's too boring and never works. Who wants a chicken breast for lunch with some greens? Instead, try to make your foods healthier. For example, make your curries with Greek yogurt (make sure it's halal of course). Or instead of half and half use full fat milk/ 2% milk. Anything that suits your taste buds. Rice without oil, or minimal oil. Bake never fry. You can coat your foods with some oil and bake them if you do not like the taste of just bake In sha' Allah you will adapt a taste for them!

                          Again, these are things that helped me, I hope this isn't unsolicited advice, I just want to help in sha' Allah!

                          Salam!

                            What is the Sunnah diet?

                              A diet that mainly corporates food and eating habits from the sunnah.
                              What else could it be?:scratch:
                              Plenty of articles that list the hadith.
