Food Talk

My Girlfriends and i gathered at Y's house for a wonderful lunch

her mom as usual cooked us a delicious meal

this is how the conversation around the table took place

w: wow the food looks good! can i have a teaspoon please

me: why a teaspoon?

w: so i eat less

y: oh my god I'm gna have to spend all of tomorrow at the gym to burn what i ate!

a: you barely had two spoons!

me: s you want some beryane?

s: no i don't eat rice

me: some msakhan?

s: no i don't eat bread

me eating my warag 3nab

c: do u know how many calories ur putting in ur body

me: r u counting

c: yes

me: ur a freak

c: ur gna be sorry

me: shut up

z and D get into a debate about the best diet plan to follow

my 15 year old sister had some pasta she doesn't eat rice, or bread, she doesn't like chicken or meat, i have no idea what she eats!

this happens every time i sit down to have food with ANYONE

be it family or friends

the conversation always turns to diets, weight, gym, i don't know who lost how much

and oh my god i gained two kilos i don't deserve to live

it PISSES me off this obsession with weight!

life is just waaaay to short to waste this much time and energy worrying ur a size six and not a 2


if you dont want to get over yourself then please keep me out of it

I'm not interested in counting calories

cutting out carbs

or eating nothing but cucumbers for 3 days

i don't care if i loose 5 pounds

or gain 10

as long as I'm healthy and my pants fit fine

i am happy and content with the way i look

i aint no jessica alba (and wouldnt mind looking like her)

but im not going to kill myself in the process!

That is just rediculous! I eat what I want when I want!

I dont care who is trying to be all healthy I'm going to enjoy myself and then I will just work out later!

And guys like curves!

bs seriously no harm in watching the diet beskat ;p

August 1, 2007 at 4:57 AM  

people are getting Obsessed with weight and overweight thing and making big deal of it, i know a person who can't eat before calculating calories in everything he eats :| this is getting crazy

August 1, 2007 at 6:26 AM your last few posts I can see that small things piss you off.

Caring about weight is not a bad thing as long as it doesn't become an obsession. I hate those girls who are already skinny but are still depressed because they wanna lose pounds..It so pisses me off that I start checking out the girl and see where the fat is..

August 1, 2007 at 8:05 AM  

Hi eshda3wa
Nothing wrong w/ being healthy everyone realizes this... but it is totally ur right to ask to be left out of it
the thing is once u start this path u won't stop
Having a well toned body is addictive
Small things piss off everyone in Kuwait nowadays.. its turning into a theme

August 1, 2007 at 8:51 AM  

They Italians only talk about food when they're eating. Us, we talk about food and losing weight, while we much down the food that will make us gain it.

I say eat, whatever you want and as much as you want, enjoy it! Everyone has to be careful of extremes, but otherwise just enjoy it!

August 1, 2007 at 8:54 AM  

and oh my god i gained two kilos i don't deserve to live..

8aweyaa :D :D :D

i second ur observation... when food arrives, diet and calories automatically invited.

August 1, 2007 at 9:08 AM  

I love your friends!

quoting nicole ritchie "I blame America's weight obsession"

having said that, 3awafee eat like there's no tomorrow!

August 1, 2007 at 10:30 AM  

You have every right to be pissed ! i hate people who make a big deal of diet and stuff !But obeseness is not good either ! Exercise is a must for healthy living ...
BTW that food looks delicious ...are those real photos ?

August 1, 2007 at 11:10 AM  

and Yey! you are not moderating !

August 1, 2007 at 11:11 AM  

I've said it a million times, "Weight is NOT a measure of health!".

August 1, 2007 at 11:55 AM  

Exercise lots and eat what you like. ;p

August 1, 2007 at 12:48 PM  

I am impressed! Finally someone who has some sanity in the fat-phobic world

August 1, 2007 at 1:18 PM  

LOOOL @ rekoo's comment and he is sooo right wallah ;)

besides curves are "in" again

hun if I saw that food...then I would grap my spoon and scoop and shove baby =D

its for me to decide of I am overweight or not...not my friends and family....and I dont know why ladies feel like they have to annouce it to the whole world that they are on a diet.....once and twice and 10 times in a span of one hour!!!

August 1, 2007 at 2:37 PM  

It pisses me off too!

"If I eat that ice-cream" I will run for 20 minutes tonight!

This is all mumbo jumbo! CRAP!

Life is too short to be missing out on it like this. Stay healthy but dont be a freak!

August 1, 2007 at 2:49 PM  

Mashalla the food looks GOOD !!!
3LAAICH bel3afyaa .. Ow m3laaich men7ad!
Eat and always remain healthy!

I hate it when while eating a person keeps nagging about calories. I mean I wouldn't mind hearing it from them once or twice but not everytime we eat!

August 1, 2007 at 4:35 PM  

first and foremost, wow! what a delicious looking spread. i just had dinner before visiting your blog and even on a full tummy, the pictures made me hungry all over again. *sigh*

and i am totally on your side of the fence when it comes to obsession with weight or looks. that'll explain my portly frame and the lack of good looks. but seriously speaking, i don't quite understand it myself.

i can understand if one is on a diet for health reasons. its a whole different thing if it is purely because of looks or curves.

as you've correctly pointed out - life's too short.

August 1, 2007 at 4:41 PM  

WOW, i really do envy you for the content ..
I guess i won't be such a pleasent company if you sit with me :P
I'm obssesed with my weight to the extreme!

Delicious dinner BTW :)

August 1, 2007 at 7:19 PM  

Scream it from the mountain tops!!!! Who gives a crap- just eat and be healthy!!!

And mashallah her mom looks like she is quite the cook---so when can I come over cuz I am always hungry now :)

August 1, 2007 at 9:34 PM  

Gym business needs to keep going(and so do the food business!) :)

August 1, 2007 at 11:47 PM  

i had that obsession for a while.. but not anymore! :| lol

aaakkhhh,, ur foood looook so gooood! I want warag 3nb... and the rice looks so goood *droooooools*

August 2, 2007 at 12:55 AM  

yesss!!! no comment moderation! I LOVE YOU FOR THAT!! lol :p

August 2, 2007 at 12:56 AM  

lol lovely topic!!! Here's what i think:

when it comes to food i eat WHATEVER I WANT! I never feel bad if I ate a lot. And i never relate how my body looks like to what I eat. of course if i over do it with eating then it's exaggeration. But never have i ever in my life counted calories! It makes me laugh actually when i see people doing that.

When it comes to keeping my body fit i really link it to and with sports and excersising and working out. If people never work out they don't have the right to even IMAGINE having a sexy body because starvation is not what leads to weight loss.

Ps: The food looks YUMMU YUMMYY!!! 6arshoooly shwayya :(

August 2, 2007 at 1:25 AM  

first , bl3afya :*

i think i'm more like your sis :D lol its not always about weight .. I have the weirdest eating habits ever .. I mean my grandma is just sick of trying to make me EAT .. I don’t do fish , meat , chicken , eggs , rice , spicy stuff mostly everything .. I’ve known with my salad and soup lol .. I know it might sound crazy to everyone , my parents were freaking out .. I actually enjoy them asking me at each time to eat .. I’m such a brat :P

August 2, 2007 at 2:41 AM  

bel 3afyaaa ,, hathe m7tra mng ;p

eklee ele tbena 5oo ;)

August 2, 2007 at 5:55 AM  

Girl, Eat like there is no tomorrow :)

Don't let anyone stop you from enjoying your life the high calorie way.

Just make sure you maintain your current weight if you're satisfied with it.

August 2, 2007 at 4:22 PM  

Yes I am always on a diet! But when I go out with friends to eat or my husband (a chef) makes me something yummy; all diets and weight issues disappear! Oh yes I’ll be on a hard diet for the net 3 days, but not cucumber diet for sure!

I would love to put 10 kilos from the food in those pictures!! I miss real home made Kuwaiti food!

August 2, 2007 at 6:23 PM  

bil what you want and when u want...dont care what people say :)

August 2, 2007 at 11:25 PM  

it does a get a bit ridiculous. Leave my food alone!

August 3, 2007 at 1:26 PM  


I didnt have home cooked meal for almost 2 years :(

August 3, 2007 at 5:28 PM  

weshalem galba wallah!
3alaich ib ALF 3afya, and don't give a damn what people think!
if you're happy with the way you look, then that's enough!

August 3, 2007 at 11:26 PM  

If it looks good, i eat it :D

A friend was telling me about this survey that asked girls between 7 to 10 if would rather be dumb or fat. The majority preferred being dumb!!

August 4, 2007 at 1:33 AM  

i used to think this thing was more of a girl thing, but lately i've been dealing with a lot of guys that sound exactly like ur buddies here, sure they might be more fit then i am, but at least when i take a bite outta my food i go mmmmmmmmmmmmm instead of saying "hatha khafeeef" and putting a fake smile on my face ;p

August 4, 2007 at 1:59 AM  

I hope your sister snaps out of the low carb thing it's horrible. The worst part is they think they are getting results when in essence they are shriveling away. My sister was a child model 11-18 and she suffered greatly she finally overcame the whole food thing by discovering cardio (its like brushing your teeth it becomes 2nd nature.) And now she eats everything and anything.

August 4, 2007 at 2:12 AM  

its nice to eat food is fun :D 7elo ino alwa7ed y6ma7 le7ajah bs mo bel tajwee3.

August 4, 2007 at 2:47 AM  

im starting to wonder if my comment will fit on this page.
lol mashallah :p

but man that conversation was amusing!
u should come have lunch with my family
mashallah kolna ibnakol aktar min ba3ad :p
we might complain about calories after we've had so much food we cant breathe :p

August 4, 2007 at 4:55 AM  

well really some people should get it through their heads that there are those out there that don't need to watch what they eat

August 4, 2007 at 11:02 AM  

food looks yummy
may you i get invited next time :P

BoR KaaN

August 4, 2007 at 11:08 AM  

hello suga,

I'm a food lover myself.. and everything in moderation works best ;)

August 4, 2007 at 12:39 PM  

Thats our fault !!

We think if we eat less
we will loose weight !!

Whats the use if this way is
not healthy!!?.. our body needs
everything .. so i eat everything
eb qadar mo3ayyan then i do some
sports to burn that !

its that simple .. i guess ..
and its working with me ..

August 4, 2007 at 1:02 PM  

You go girl! Umhummm

August 5, 2007 at 8:58 AM  

its a good thing to watch what we eat, but at the same time i agree with your point on view. you live once, enjoy every meal.

i love food more than anything in the world, ok not more than sex, but i love food.

people eat to live, i live to eat :0D

August 5, 2007 at 9:12 AM

What do they add to human knowledge or progress? immature, worthless, crying-for-attention sub-humans
eshda3wa, just delete his comment and keep on posting.
Your readers await.
