It’s January 31, 2011. In a few hours, I will start with a new diet program, the Nestle Fitnesse 14 Day Program. Heard about this diet program from one of my online friends.
Basically, I’ll eat Nestle Fitnesse Low Fat Whole Wheat Cereal with Low Fat Milk for breakfast and dinner, and eat one full meal in between for lunch. According to the cereal box,
This meal plan is designed to maximise the benefits of Netle Fitnesse whole grain cereal on your shape! For best results replace breakfast and one meal for 14 days with a cereal such as Nestle Fitnesse. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and low fat, carbohydrate-rich foods, and always remember to exercise!
Example Meal Plan:
Breakfast: 30 g bowl of Nestle Fitnesse with 125 ml skimmed milk, one piece of fruit, and 1 cup of tea or coffee.
Lunch: Balanced meal with vegetables, meat or fish or eggs, bread, dairy products.
Dinner: 30 g bowl of Nestle Fitnesse with 125 ml skimmed milk, vegetables or low fat yoghurt.
For my own program, I already bought two boxes of Nestle Fitnesse, one regular box and the other a Honey and Almond variety. I also bought some Nestle Low Fat Milk, Nestle Fruit Selection Yoghurt, Nescafe Protect, Twinnings Peppermint Tea, Chocolait Chocolate Milk Drink, Del Monte and Dole Fruit Cups, Dried Fruit Chips, Quaker Oats Oatmeal, and Century Tuna.
I will be following the cereal plus fruit or yoghurt twice a day and one full meal part of the diet program. Plus, I’ll avoid instant noodles and eat more veggies. I love veggies but not having my own kitchen has been a hindrance to eating veggies. Will also eat more fish and seafood instead of pork and beef. And at times when I get really hungry, I’ll eat oatmeal to accompany the cereal.
I have already cut down on coffee to one cup a day. So I’ll probably do 1 cup of coffee plus 1 cup of tea a day instead of 1 cup of coffee or tea. I’ll avoid soda, iced tea, and juices and drink more water.
When I’m out, I’ll eat one piece of pastry only with the full meal.
And I’ll try to list down and blog everything I eat from tomorrow until February 14, 2011.
For a voracious food lover like me, this can be a very daunting task but I’m determined to make it work. I already eat cereal or oatmeal at least once a day so this won’t be too hard. I just have to be really disciplined when I’m out with my friends or cousins.
Wish me luck!
