Just what I needed and very timely too! Last Saturday, I was able to attend an event about weight management and I was able to meet Ms. Cheshire Que. It was held at Café 1771 and they served a very healthy lunch.
Ms. Cheshire Que is a lifestyle and weight management consultant and a US registered dietitian. She pioneered the My Spa Diet, the first online weight management program in the country that emphasizes a customized diet plan fit for a person’s lifestyle.
So, what is My Spa Diet, really? According to Ms. Cheshire,” is a unique and more personal approach to lose weight without causing a drastic change to your food selection. It first considers a lot of aspects about your body by assessing your Body Mass Index (BMI), lifestyle, and eating patterns. It is also a set of customized meal plans that largely depends on your Total Caloric Allowance (TCA) per day.”
Just like any diet, it needs commitment from the person who wants to lose weight as this diet takes on a holistic approach and a lifestyle modification in order for it to work.
Before the event began, we had a body scan. They checked everything and told us our measurements and what we need to change in our lifestyle.
ZOMG! Is that 36.4% Body fat??? Yup. and I am currently 159 lbs. tsk… tsk…
The weighing scale at home says I’m 150lbs…LIAR!…..LOL!
Anyway, when they analyzed the overall aspect of my body, they said that I need to move more as I have very slow metabolism. I admit, I need to exercise.The thing that I hate about it is that I get bored because it takes too long. Ms. Chesire said that if I needed to exercise for 1 hour per day, I could, say, divide it into four and take 15-minutes exercise four times to make it tolerable.
That’s a great idea, one which I hadn’t thought of simply because my way of thinking is that short exercises don’t work.
Another thing that’s great about this diet is that it teaches you how to “eyeball” portion sizes of the food that you have to eat. This way, even if you go out, you can easily tell how much you can eat thus preventing overeating.
This is a brilliant program because you can do everything at the comfort of your own home, remember this is online-based?. Perfect for those busy people out there.
They even have 24-hour support so you can contact them anytime. All of these things for only P500/$11.99 per month. I’m giving it a try for the next 30 days…
Thank you so much for inviting me Ms. Cheshire Que!
