"My Spa Diet" is All About Me and You!



Tons of work load and deadline for the upcoming quarter end consumed my "me" time to rejuvenate, to relax and to do some round of exercises. Eating processed and junk foods became my food-on-the-go. Finding enough time to exercise and go on healthy diet was my least priority apart from the fact that I'm too lazy to exercise to keep in good shape. These are some of the issues that are holding me back  to lose these raising extra pounds and visceral fat. I found the perfect response that commensurate my lifestyle last Saturday when I was introduced to My Spa Diet at the cozy 1771 Cafe located in El Pueblo Real de Manila, Ortigas Center, and I'm pleased to share it with you dear followers.




We were welcomed with a good, delish, ready-to- drink, easy pha-max Wheatgrass which I occasionally consume and purchase at 7-eleven stores. We took inner body scan to find out our Body mass index (BMI), it is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to adult men and women. I was happy to find out that BMI result was normal but on the threshold of danger for just one point.




We had a healthy starter, clear mushroom soup....





Fresh, crisp and healthy green salad were served with a good fat dressing on the side afterwards. The salad was made of romaine lettuce, bread crumbs, bits of bacon and house vinaigrette.






We were introduced to the University of the Philippines - Diliman graduate in BS Community Nutrition, Cheshire Que. She is also a USA registered dietitian, registered nutritionist-dietitian in the Philippines, a registered nurse, and an Australian certified emergency first response instructor for Asia-Pacific. 




A trusted name when it comes to nutrition related service. One of her most recent achievements is pioneering of the first online diet tool in the country, the www.myspadiet.com. Realistic and holistic approach to wellness, it offers an individualized approach to lifestyle and weight management in preventing onset of lifestyle related diseases through weight loss, behavior modification, and lifestyle change. Cheshire has worked with elite level of individual clients and is a current consultant for prestigious companies such as Pfizer and Easy Pha-max. A notable dietitian, she is also regularly approached for comment by the media on all areas of diet and nutrition.




I had Spanish Paprika Chicken for the main course made of  grilled chicken breast rubbed with pimenton, turmeric and olive oil, and tomato rice. Cheshire talked about the newest and practical approach into losing weight: My Spa Diet. Collaborating with registered nutritionist, it is the first online weight management program in the country that emphasizes a customized diet plan fit for a person’s lifestyle. The diet plan includes life giving foods, teaches smart eating habits and applicable exercise guidelines that considers four phases, same concept of a spa: cleansing, detoxifying, rejuvenating, and balance. “It disciplines the body on smart eating, including the importance of hydration in the diet”, Cheshire added.What interests me is the application of the psychology of nutrition and the consideration of social aspects involved in losing weight.
