Shed Off Your Holiday Weight with Healthy Foodie Manila

Healthy Foodie Manila review

The Christmas and New Year season is the time of year when everyone can eat all the food that they want and gain a few pounds (or even 10) without receiving judgment from family and friends. But after all these festivities, when we’re back to living our regular lives, that is when the pangs of guilt and regret come to haunt us with the horrific sights of our puffy cheeks and jiggly muffin tops. We immediately subject ourselves to crazy fad diets like water therapy and fasting. But where’s the fun in that, right? What if we tell you that you can shed all that holiday weight off but still get to eat delicious food and enjoy 4 meals a day? Yes, you can, and it’s with the help of Healthy Foodie Manila. 🙂

Calorie Counted Program (1200 calories)

Calorie-counted program from Healthy Foodie Manila

My sister, Mhel, wanted to lose weight, so restricting her daily caloric intake down to 1200 will help her reach that goal. Here’s her review:

Mhel: Though I was mostly jealous of the dishes Ken was getting, I actually liked almost everything included in my 5-day program. I was amazed by the variety of dishes they prepared that week. I have to admit, though they were delicious, during the first 2 days, I was struggling because of the calorie limit. I cheated on my second day (it was a stressful day at work). 😀 But the next days, I managed to stick with the diet.

My top favorite is their Brown Rice Congee which came with a small boiled egg, chicken strips and nori. This was a tasty first impression of Healthy Foodie Manila’s menu in terms of flavor, which made me look forward to the rest of the week.

I super enjoyed the Honey Chicken with Egg Fried Rice from my last day, which served as a yummy finale, I must say. 😀

Among all the snacks I got, I loved these dumplings that were filled with cheese. So bitin nga lang afterwards. 😀

Low Carb High Protein Diet (LCHP)

The Low Carb High Protein diet is not really geared to losing weight, but more on building muscles, so it’s just perfect for my needs since I just started attending boxing classes.

One of my favorite dishes was their Sliced Baked Potato with Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus. I love bacon, and if all diet food were as good as this, I wouldn’t have any problems having them every day.

Another favorite was their Mac and Cheese Bites with Tomato Salsa Dip for it’s the first time I’ve seen mac and cheese prepared this way. It was crunchy and cheesy, and the dip added a tartness that complemented the fritters.

Among the high-protein snacks, their granola bar was something I can’t get enough of. It’s seriously better than most store-bought granola bars I have ever tried.

Healthy Foodie Manila Weekly Menu

Another good thing about Healthy Foodie Manila is that they put up their weekly menus (usually based on a theme) on all of their social media pages every Wednesday, so you can see if the menu for the coming week features food that are to your liking, and then you can decide whether to sign up for the program or not. This would hardly happen because, honestly, all of their food are superb!
