Going in on unfamiliar territory, I woman-ed up and donned my barely used fuschia pink Adidas rubber shoes and went to the party, not knowing what to expect. Of course the diet and exercise part was a given since the host of the event is Yummy Diet and the invite did tell us to wear our gym attire but other than that, I had no clue.
In my head it would only be in a small studio with instructors to do the demo and we would sample their food afterwards as we always do in Zomato
I remember being surprised when I saw these guys carrying huge trays of food the same way I was going and we all ended up in a big function room with booths from The Function Rooms
, Curves Philippines
, Slimmer’s World
, Metro Dental
, Green Stevia
, Creamy Delight Yogurt
, Summit Drinking Water
, Yummy Diet
, GoldPress Juicing Co.
and a lot more a stage set up and a DJ to match no less.
The host was Magic 89.9’s Tin Gamboa (Suzy) who led us into a night filled with deliciously healthy, calorie specific adventures.
The demonstrations were split in three which admittedly, even though I only sat on the sidelines, I was enticed to move to the beat and let the music flow through me. It was set up so that you could see what they teach in each class and if it’s the one you could pair your diet to. Yoga’s always been a no brainer choice for me but seeing how they let loose during the Zumba class, I think I’m turned. Everyone was actually encouraged to participate but I opted to go around, take pictures and talk to other bloggers and guests.
In between the sessions you can partake in the spread they prepared which was taken from Yummy Diet’s menu.

What’s a meal without drinks, right? GoldPress Juicing Co. got us covered. They had 6 different flavours for us to try:
Green Machine: Celery, Cucumber, Pineapple, Apple, Spinach
Green Glean: Cucumber, Pineapple, Romaine Lettuce, Spinach, Apple
Real Red: Carrot, Red Beet, Lemon, Grapes, Cucumber, Mint
Ruby Red: Red Beet, Apple, Watermelon
Red Ahead: Carrot, Turnip, Pineapple, Romaine Lettuce, Apple, Orange, Red Beet
Orange Gilt II: Pineapple, Orange, Grapefruit
One bottle packs a big punch. It’ll give you the energy that you need, antioxidants to help get rid of the toxins inside your body and also great for your overall health. If you’re thinking of going on a juice cleanse, GoldPress is definitely one you should consider.
Yummy Diet together with GoldPress Juicing Co. offers a package in which you can avail of their meals and get a couple of bottles of GoldPress too!
The event was a success and everyone went home healthily stuffed and happily satisfied.
The gift bags were of course a nice touch especially if you’re seriously considering a lifestyle change. Since that’s really what it comes down to, dieting is not temporary and in order to be healthy and live a healthy life, you must change your lifestyle. Slowly take out the bad and replace it with the good. It differs really, some people wake up one morning and decide they want that change to happen instantly and others like me likes it gradually, slow and steady. No matter which way you want it done, make sure you get it done.
I have been checking out these diet meal deliveries for quite some time now and I had a few concerns and first one on that list: Is it really worth it?
Shelling out 1800 (more or less) every 5 days can be a bit much when you try to compare it to you preparing the meal yourself or ordering fast food take out.
But think about the bigger picture and I’m not patronizing them, think about how every diet meal delivery system works in general…
They prepare your food, cooked, packed and ready to go. You won’t have to buy from the market or the grocery which tends to be tedious for me sometimes and yes, the overspending is ever present since I tend to think I need certain items when I don’t.
Take out and delivery – how much do you spend when you eat out, get take out or have food delivered? These diet deliveries offer 3 meals, 2 snacks and in the case of Yummy Diet they’ll include coffee and tea as well. 350php more or less per day.
They offer a specific calorie plan. In my extensive weight loss research (when I was studying how to lose weight without lifting a finger). For women it’s usually 1200 – 1400 calories per day based on your BMI, height – weight ratio and your target healthy weight loss per day to target date. For men it’s 1600-1800. It depends on how much you need to lose and how fast you want to lose it without having negative effects like muscle wasting or chronic ulcer -which usually happens when you deprive yourself of food or skip meals.
If you’ve tried setting this up on your own like I did, it does take a lot of effort since not only do you have to be specific on your portions, you have to know exactly how many calories, sodium, fat, protein, carbohydrates and sugar goes in and match it with how many you need per day and not exceed one or the other. You can try the app that I downloaded to help me: MyFitnessPal
. Just to see what I’m getting at.
I think it’s a good way to start if you want to lose weight especially if you have a busy schedule or you can’t afford to religiously count every calorie and prepare meals the day before.
Let me know what you think or if you have any tips or tricks with regards to weight loss and weight management. Connect with me on any of the social media platforms there on the side.
I can’t wait for the next party!
