If you guys are following me on Instagram, you would have probably noticed that I’ve been trying some of the diet delivery services. The first one that I’ve tried was that of Yummy Diet. I’m actually not new to the whole diet delivery thing. The first one that I tried was that of Fitness Gourmet. I wrote about it last year. From what I remembered, the food was fine but then what I didn’t like were the snacks. I didn’t like them because it said “surprise” and I’m really not fond of not knowing what I was eating.
But then again this year, since one of my main goals this year is to really be fit and lose all of that excess weight, I really need help in the diet part. Last 2012, when I had the same goal of trying to lose weight, I did it all by myself. I followed the Cohen Diet which I got a hold of a copy from a friend who enrolled in the program. I enrolled our help at 25 Mushrooms Kitchen, wherein they hold classes and teach helpers to cook some Cohen Meals and then I asked our help to cook for me. (Yes, I do not have the time to prepare my meals – I work. :P)
But after years of dieting, I got sick of the food and then the “cheats” started creeping and I wasn’t able to get back to the whole diet because I’m so sick and tired of the taste of the food. And that’s when I realized why not shake things up a bit and then order from different diet delivery service and then try each and every one of them. Compare and contrast. And decide what is the best one. So basically, that’s my quest this year.
My initial quest actually was to try all of the juice detoxification companies but then I realized, I think I have to lose weight first before detoxifying so here I am on my journey to weight lose and hopefully to a permanent one already.
So the weeks of January 26 – February 6, was the Yummy Diet weeks for me.
The cool thing about Yummy Diet is that they give you utensils (spoon and fork) every start of the week, 5 pieces of instant coffee and 5 pieces of hot tea. Each day, you will have 3 meals with 2 snacks.
The food was pretty yummy (really). This was Daing na Bangus for breakfast. The amount was okay. But you have to see, believe it or not, I don’t really eat that much. I think I just eat a lot of junk food. Hehe.
This is a sample snack. The thing is though, the snack that they usually give are fruits. Which is a GOOD thing. Although it was a bit of a struggle for me because I am really not a fruit-eating person. I know that, THAT’s bad but then I don’t know why I just don’t. The good thing though about this is that I am able to train myself to eat more fruits.
Actually during that time, when I was hungry, I would eat more fruits and I didn’t even gain weight. Oh by the way, I forgot to tell you that I ordered 1,200 calories per day.
This is a sample lunch. Yes, it might look sad because it’s a salad but it’s actually not. And really, this helped me a lot because during those weeks (well, until now) I was soo busy with things that I didn’t really notice the food that I was eating.
Also, everyday, I would get this piece of paper indicating all of the things that I was going to eat for the day. Which is pretty helpful because forgetful me, will really not pay attention and might eat the wrong thing for the wrong meal. And thank God for Instagram, I am able to look back at what I need to it. See folks. That’s the reason why I actually take a picture of these things so that I won’t forget.
My take on Yummy Diet?
What I liked about Yummy Diet is that they deliver the day before. I actually find it a hassle if the delivery service delivers on the day itself. Maybe it’s the OC part of me that wants everything prepared beforehand, I don’t know. But it just seems safer when I know that my food for the next day is there already.
At PHP 1,800 for 5 days for the 1,200 calories per day meal, I would say that this is pretty sulit. So far for the 2 weeks that I’ve ordered from them I cannot remember a meal that I didn’t like.
And the fact that they have BPI bank deposit which is totally convenient for me because I can just do bank transfer.
Since it’s the first diet service that I’ve used, I lost a total of 3.2 lbs which is pretty great!
So wish me luck folks on my next adventures. So far, I’m not happy how it’s turning out but I’ll just keep at it. I think temptation is getting the better of me. Hassle. But well, you gotta do what you gotta do.
