As a former class rep for Food & Nutrition in Secondary School, I’m ashamed (not really) to say that I can’t cook for nuts.
Newsflash: Here’s what I can do though: eat.
With a wide variety of food from around the world readily available in Singapore, it’s no wonder why locals who spend a long time overseas crave the food options back home.
Nasi Lemak, Roti Prata, Hokkien Mee, Pasta, Sushi, Oyster Omelette, you name it, chances are I love it.
Having your other half cook for you is a blessing to many, but now it seems like the opposite is true.
Like this (un)fortunate lady.
Wife injured from weight gain, blames Husband for superb culinary skills
On 8 March 2019 in China, a woman by the name of Xiao Li was admitted to the hospital to treat a slipped disc that slipped in her spine.
The medical term is “Lumbar Herniated Disc” to be exact.
As a result, she suffered excruciating pain in her lower back and legs.
This was caused by her severe weight gain of almost 40kg in the span of two years due to the jaw-dropping dishes cooked by her husband.
According to the lady in her 20s, she claimed, “My husband’s cooking is really good, and for the last two years, he only cooked meat dishes.”
In addition, certain dishes prepared by her other half were reportedly fried with oil further contributing to her poor health.

Unlike her, Xiao Li’s husband, who is 1.9 meters tall, only weighs 75kg. That’s a BMI of 20.8 which is within the healthy range.
But She’s Wrong
However, it’s unfair to attribute her weight gain solely to her husband’s home-cooked meal because reports have shown that Xiao Li’s food intake was much higher than her daily required amount.
To worsen things, her job requires her to be desk-bound for long periods of time and she is chauffeured daily by her partner.
Allegedly, she has raised the issue to her husband but he just ends up stuffing her with mouth-watering dishes.
As such, her legs grew weaker by day and soon, mundane activities like walking became a challenge for her. In an interview, she mentioned that she could no longer straighten her back and walk a few steps without taking a break.
Enjoy Eating But In Moderation
So ladies and gentlemen, in life you lose some and win some. It’s not a crime to enjoy eating but do yourself a favour and workout like this cat from time to time.
If animals can do it, we have no excuse.
How to avoid spine injuries
According to SingHealth, readers experiencing slight discomfort in their back should take the following precautions to mitigate risks:
- Be mindful of your posture. Always sit and stand upright.
- If you have to carry heavy objects, bend down all the way and lift it up from your knees.
- Reduce the tension on your neck and back i.e. Spread the weight of your bag evenly across both shoulders
And according to experts from Goody Feed, the best way to avoid weight gain is to watch your diet and exercise regularly. You didn’t know that, right?

The Coca-Cola Plus Coffee has arrived in Singapore, and let’s just say that the taste is very subjective: one of us thinks it’s like coffee candy, one of us thinks it’s like carbonated dark chocolate milk and one of us think it’s like Vanilla Coke. However, none of us thinks that it’s worth a second try, simply because we’ll all rather have Coke and coffee separately.
