Look Who's On Diet

I am making this post to help a few friends who asked about how did I trim down. Hopefully, it will also help some of you ladies who are wanting to drop a little more weight.

My Advice: Eat everything in the plate expect for 1 & 1/2 part of whole skinless hainanese chicken legs.

Two months ago, I noticed that it became hard for me to fit in my favorite skinny jeans and I had bulges. Blame my cravings because I've been ignoring my diet plan for a while. So, I thought about going back to my old eating habit* after seeing my waistline. You know, I am not worried about shopping for a bigger size of jeans. I only need to be watchful in order to avoid health problems in the future.

Breakfast= 1 cup rolled oats + 1 glass of fresh milk
Morning Snack= 2 pcs cookies + water
Lunch= 1 cup of rice + 1 serving of meat/ fish + unlimited vegetable + 1 serving of fruit
Afternoon Snack= 1 slice of white bread with 1 tbsp peanut butter + water
Dinner= 1 cup of rice + 1 serving of meat/ fish + unlimited vegetable + a small portion of dessert
Before Bedtime Snack (optional)= 1 glass of fresh milk or 2 pcs biscuits and water

Feel free to personalize this diet plan in depending on your goal. Remember, you may only reduce the amount of carbohydrates. From one cup of rice, you can reduce to a half. Instead of white bread, eat some kind of a wheat bread. Don't increase the meat and fish servings or the dessert portion. And, when I say unlimited vegetables, it means you can eat any vegetables you like esp. the green and leafy ones. They are the best to a healthy diet. Also, drink plenty of water to keep yourself properly hydrated and do some exercise for at least 20 minutes everyday.

I believe dieting shouldn't feel like food deprivation or some sort of sacrifice. You can still eat your favorite cake or enjoy a soda, but please take everything in small portions. You can do your diet from Monday to Friday. Just leave Saturdays and Sundays as your cheat days. Happy dieting!

*This is my personal diet routine. It is still best to see a doctor or dietician if you want to make a healthy diet plan for yourself.


  1. ayay! health guru...good thing it works for you sis...I've been trying to shed some pounds...pero d parin! so no need to exercise natong diet mo sis...:)

  2. so no need na mag exercise sis...hehehe...galing namin ni fitness guru...ehheehhe!

  3. sis dhemz, i forgot to include that one.. i actually exercise every morning.. just do a little stretching up to 20 minutes..edited my post for you..^^

  4. I guess what it all boils down to is not to starve ourselves and to eat in moderation, plus exercise, right?

  5. agree w/ u, food deprivation is not dieting. we could anything we want, in small portions, AND EXERCISE...that! oh, i hate to exercise, hehe
    can we just eat, eat, eat....:)))

  6. Thats looks yummy sis.. balance - thats what I dont have.. i need to move.. tamad eh!

  7. your self discipline when it comes to food is admirable mommy kaya pala ang slim ng figure mo. ever since i gave birth i ate like a construction worker (no offense meant!) thus the unsightly bulge in my tummy, must get rid of it soon...maybe i should try ur diet regimen...

  8. I agree about having weekends off. It's easy to be disciplined weekdays when I go to the office, but weekends I find it hard to eat healthy so yun, moderation na lang :)


Thanks for dropping by. Have a great day!
