It's not you, it's your metabolism

After the Christmas holidays I promised myself that I was going to work hard to get my "Boracay Body" back, that I was going to start the year right by working out religiously and eating healthy again, but of course I'm only human and totally "forgot" about my said goal. TEEHEE! It got so bad that sometimes all I wanted to do was stay in and eat all the junk food in sight and if that was gone, go out and buy some more. I would always eat out and have fast food deliveries at past midnight (big no-no) and promise myself that the next day I would get on that treadmill and run, but I never did. I had no motivation whatsoever to change my eating habits or my lifestyle, for that matter. That is until I had a photo shoot and I couldn't fit into the clothes that my stylist brought for me to wear. From then on I said "Thats it, this is going to stop and give me a month I'll be back to my old self, but better!" And thats exactly what I did and exactly what I'm doing now!

I recently enrolled in the program "Sure Slim". What I like most about this program is that it isn't just about losing weight (thats just a bonus) cause really its not how you look on the outside but whats going on in the inside. They help correct your metabolism and encourage you to do this program for the lifestyle you get out of it. After all being healthy isn't just about looking good and depriving yourself for months and months until you get your desired body, its a lifestyle that you have to standby in order to MAINTAIN your healthy and gorgeous looking body.

What they do is they test your blood to see what types of food are good for you and what aren't, then they give you a list of all the food you can have and a meal program that goes along with it. You can have them deliver all your meals prepared via Yellow Halo or you can actually prepare your meals all by yourself, which is what I do! Here are a few examples of my meals!

For breakfast I had oatmeal and a glass of milk

For lunch I had tuna marinated in balsamic vinegar, oregano,
 thyme and lemon with grilled cucumbers, eggplant and steamed cauliflower 

For dinner I had steak fillet marinated in balsamic vinegar, rosemary 
and oregano and steamed cauliflower, grilled eggplant and cucumbers

Getting healthy or going on a diet isn't exactly the hardest thing to do, just put your mind to it and you WILL see results. God gave us such wonderful bodies and its a shame that we all harm this gift he has given us by abusing it with food that ruins it.

Good eating habits + dedication = Great metabolism, lower stress levels, healthy lifestyle and a hot body not just for the summer time but all year round!
