day ONE

i'm going to do the south beach diet. haaaay. after the christmas break i found out na nag gain ako ng 2 kgs! hmph.

so what's the south beach diet? it's basically low carbs high protein. mas okay lang nga sya sa atkins kasi i'll get to eat good carbs din naman... eventually. based on my own understanding (ge, correct me if i'm wrong), the principle behind this diet is that because the body cannot burn carbohydrates as its source of energy (kasi nga you lessen your carbs intake), it would burn the fats instead. yeah, goodbye flab! and if i remember correctly from my zoo 10 class which seemed eons ago, fat is actually a more efficient source of energy than carbs. parang ganon kaya nga lang it's not as readily available as carbs.

the diet is comprised of 3 phases. during the first 2 weeks (phase one), there will be no carbs AT ALL. only lean meat. no fruits also because they contain sugar. by the end of phase one, i should have lost some 8-13 pounds already. phase two is when i start to introduce some good carbs back in my diet. like fruits and i think whole wheat bread. after each week of phase two, i would still be losing some 1-2 pounds. phase 2 lasts until i reach my desired weight. then comes phase three. i think phase three is when i can almost eat anything i want but since i'm not used to eating big servings anymore, i would be able to regulate my food intake unconsciously.

so starting today, i bid farewell to my best friends go nut donuts and chocolates! haaaay. i'll miss you all. i'll see you all again when i'm 49 kgs. tears... :(

according to this SITE, the medical reccomendation for my gender (F) and height (5'1") is 49-60 kgs. halllow! 60 is FAT AND BOCHOG na kaya for me. so 49 na lang, hehehe. my BMI (Body Mass Index) is currently 22.9 kg/m^2 and i fall within the normal range/ideal weight which is 19.1-25.8 for women. unbelievable! baka naman not for asians ito. but i feel fat na talaga eh so i'll really try to lose weight.

for breakfast today, i ate tuna flakes guisado and drank a tall glass of water only.

serioso na 'to! :p

my hana did the SBD a month ago. he lost 20 lbs. in 4 weeks. that was enough for him so he didn't do the phase 3 already. he just goes to the gym and works out. good luck with your diet :)
