I’m still 10 lbs away from my desired weight and since I have to be in Manila for two weeks, I thought I should give The Sexy Chef’s Dine Lite meals a try. Two months ago, I made a similar trip to the metro and I booked one week’s worth of meals with Diet Diva. It was effective and I lost 7 lbs. This time, since summer is already here, I’m upping the ante and doing 1050 calories per day for 10 days with The Sexy Chef, three days of juice fast with Juice Jab and lastly 5 days of 1200 calories per day with Diet Diva.
The Sexy Chef’s meal delivery service works the same way as Diet Diva. You book whichever program/meal plan you like, you pay in advance then wait for the meals to be delivered. The same principle applies, you stick with their meals and eat only what they provide. No soda, no candies and definitely no pastries.
For 5 days worth of 350 calories lunch and dinner, The Sexy Chef charges Php 2150. In my case, I added one more meal for breakfast. The meals are delivered in the morning, no later than 12pm. On my first day, I requested that they move the delivery time to 1pm since I had to be somewhere important before that. This was noted clearly on the delivery slip but for some reason they did not follow it.
Another notable thing is their packaging. Maybe it’s just me but I prefer the brown paper bags that Diet Diva uses — they seem neater and of course, more environment friendly. TSC uses ordinary white plastic bags although kudos to them because they always separate the sauce from the food keeping the pasta/rice/veggies firm. This is also allows me to control the amount of sauce I use giving me more chance to save on calories. A big plus in my book, indeed!
All of their meals are heavy on the spice, I guess for satiety and also to boost metabolism. They are very tasty, yes, but there’s only so much spicy food I can take before I start looking for chocolate. I’m still half way through my booking with them and so far I haven’t cheated. I’m so excited to weigh myself when I get home. Hopefully, by the end of my stay here in Manila, I will have reached my goal, just in time for the summer
Wish me luck!
