Primed Diet Day 1: CUTTING THE CRAP

As a foodie, I've struggled with my weight for years. With all the restos I had to feature regularly, it was just really hard to resist temptations. Weeks ago, I realized I have gained so much weight to the point that it has greatly affected my self esteem. Truth is, I have been feeling bloated and crappy for months. =(

Mahirap pala talaga buhay ng matataba. Habang lumalaki ka, nalalaman mo din kung pano nagbabago ang tingin syo ng tao. #sadreality

I know that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes however in my case, I also know that if I remain overweight for long, I will develop life threatening diseases.  I don't want that of course. I wanna enjoy a meaningful long life. I want to travel more, write more and also have my own family soon.

The past months have been tough for me with all the stress I had to deal with. I was so busy that my eating went out of control. I felt so shitty. I would turn to bags of chips and candies for that needed extra "boost" whenever I worked on my articles. I couldn't practice yoga because my wrist had been swollen for weeks now due to too much stress. The past weeks were one of the toughest ones I believe. I felt so heavy and sluggish. I knew I had to do something about it or else. 

So now, I've decided to prioritize my health and lose a lot of pounds for better health and self esteem.

I'm thankful that Ms Cathy Turvil of Nurture Wellness Village Tagaytay introduced me to Chad Davis of Yesterday, was Day 1 of my Primed Diet Program where Chad will be helping me with my weightloss goals and to overcome my sugar addiction and CUTTING THE CRAP.

He gave me a list of what to do: 

NO GRAINS (small amount of rice only)

Each day, I'm required to record what I've eaten and report it to him so he can monitor my progress. To make it more easy, I think it's best to post what I ate, the physical activity I did plus how I feel. 

Starting weight as of July 26: 152lbs

Here it goes:

Breakfast: Primed Breakfast by Chad Davis

Dinner: Roasted Chicken, Salad and Fruit slices

Activity: uhmmmm... sleeping? lols

How I feel: Surprised that I didn't feel hungry the whole day and also didn't crave for sugar. I wonder what will happen tomorrow.... for inquiries contact 0929.421.2148 or

Vikings Luxury Buffet Restaurant Opens in Mega Mall

Vikings Luxury Buffet Restaurant Opens in Mega Mall

Hey Eats-A-Daters! Next time you visit SM Megamall with your friends and loved ones, be sure to dine at the newly opened Vikings Buffet Restaurant located at the New Mega Fashion Hall! 

I've heard so many raves about this place due to its affordability and wide array of well loved international dishes. During my visit, I must say I was pretty overwhelmed with the countless food choices from appetizers, succulent meats, traditional dishes, confections and even beverages. I must say that Vikings seem to offer more variety compared to the other hotel buffets I've visited. 

They were all very tempting of course, but I knew tasting each one of them that night won't be possible so what I did was, I got the ones which I thought was worth my tummy space.

Taking photos was a bit of a challenge that night as the place was packed with a lot of folks who were on a food picking spree. Allow me to show you some of the dishes and treats I found:


Tapas Bar

Filipino Favorites

Fresh Seafood

The Craving Station

Of course, since I'm a big fan of Sushi and Sashimi, the Japanese station was my most visited that night....

If you're also a fan of Japanese food, you'll never be disappointed if you dine at Vikings!

Another great thing about Vikings in that their prices are way affordable than the ones offered by hotels! Imagine a luxury buffet with over 200 dishes ranging only around P688 on weekdays and  P1088 on weekends per head? Panalo! 

The only downside which I see would be that since the place is always full, expect a lot of noise from chatting customers and rowdy kids.So if your aim is to have a peaceful, quiet, formal type, intimate family dinner, then Vikings may not be suitable for you. But if you're the type who loves fiesta feasts and casual dining with people you feel most comfortable with, then I highly recommend Vikings as a venue for all your celebrations!
