Food Diary: Diet Diva

I’m back to dieting! I’m doing it primarily because I’ve been feeling like shit and I’m tired of it. A bit of weight loss would be a great side effect, though!

(Let’s pretend that bag of Cheetos I wolfed down while writing this entry never happened.)

Because I never have time to meal plan and prepare food in the mornings, I’m doing the rounds of diet delivery services. For week 1, I turned to an old favorite: Diet Diva!

Food Diary: What I Ate Wednesdays Featuring Diet Diva PH // 10

The unthinkable has happened: the word diet (or the battlecry “di nako magra-rice kahit kailan!!!”) is no longer part of my daily vocabulary.

It is the most liberating thing I have ever felt… ever!!!

To eat all the rice I want.
To eat an occasional bag of potato chips and not internally berate myself for it.
To go nuts with beer and not wail about my fratman’s gut for the next few days.
To re-consider stopping by McDonald’s on my way to the office not because it’s fattening, but because it’s shit food.
To have dessert.
Etc etc.

It’s really great. I’ve gained some weight but I am oddly more comfortable with my body now. I think I just stopped caring! Someone’s always going to be fatter than I am anyway.

I still have terrible eating habits, though. Skipping meals, eating junk— that sort of thing.

Good thing my buddy, Tin, gave me the gift of Diet Diva! Free food! Meals delivered to me every morning! No reason not to eat! Rice! For one whole week!

This time around, I did Diet Diva just so I could eat like a healthy, normal person.

Here are the things the good folks at Diet Diva put in my tummy last week:
