I’ve always been an actively physical person. At 5, I was taking ballet, jazz, and tap lessons. When I got to 11, I started going to the gym. At 13, I started joining countless aerobic marathons and 10Ks. Now, I still run in the mornings and practice yoga in the evenings. You’d think losing weight won’t be a problem but you’ll be mistaken. Since January, I’ve been stuck at137 lbs.
So last month, I decided that I had to do something else in order to break that plateau. I read about different diets and came across the Sexy Chef diet online. I have heard about this before and have seen their little store in Gold’s Gym. They make meals following the South Beach Diet which has three phases. Phase 1 is two weeks and Phase 2 is another two weeks. I don’t think they have a formal Phase 3 since this phase is actually maintenance. Their meals are at Php 875 a day.
Lunch and dinner were delicious considering this was supposed to be a diet! Talk about gourmet, everything was well prepared although portions are, as expected, small. Fortunately, small they may be, the dishes were quite filling. I loved the Shrimp in garlic sauce (gambas). I also love the huge meatballs with cheese inside! They also sent me salad at times but salad was mainly composed of lettuce and cucumbers, but the sauces were always so good! Sample daily menu can be found here.
In Phase 2, they slowly introduced carbs, like whole wheat bread and brown rice. They also started giving desserts like apples, food for the gods, choco chip cookies.
