Eat KFC, Swim Faster



Yea....rite....but sometimes I do it because of hungry...and nearby permaisuri pool, there's a nice KFC tuck just around the Stadium Bolasepak KL. Now, I really wonder, why on earth would they put a KFC there? Next to sports center..and even HUKM. Fast food is bad, bad for health...
I was queing behind a fellow...far too obese for his size...and this guy was packing KFC, maybe for dinner. You can just think of all the obese related disease that comes with that. High blood pressure, diabetes, stroke...

But of course they made it so tasty and juicy...our logical senses will go haywire once you entrapped by the smell...kudos to our health minister who tried to ban them from advertising.

Personally, I do eat some fast food from time to time...but I sweat and workout a lot...so it kinda balance it off...but if your life is sedentary, and not much action, I wouldn't suggest even eating it. You really have to sweat buckets to burn all those calories.

So, I usually had a zinger burger only, before swim. I don't take coke or pepsi...it's just too much sugar...

Swimming these days have been better and faster since the last year I started serious swimming. I used to oggle at other faster swimmers, who would put lap after lap...heck, I can barely finish a 50m lap...then rest, not to mention 20 or 40 laps.

Gradually, I put on more training...and soon, I could finish 1km, then 2km...and 3km just to see how tiring it was. 3km is really dead tired...

And results have paid off,....now I could just whack the water hard...lap after lap...and not even feeling tired. My technique is still far from good...so more training ahead.

Steven,

You bet KFC can be very unhealthy. I've just learnt that 3 pieces of KFC fried chicken packs a week's total requirement of trans fatty acid, the kind of fatty acid that builds up in the heart blood vessel.

So imagine those who eat KFC everyday!

I myself have stop eating there. Well, once a month maybe.

hi azman doc,

Yea...trans fat...i read bout those...prevalently used in fast food industry to lengthen the duration of food.

Hope they change this in malaysia...caused lots of people are getting heart related disease.
