My name is Vita Siregar and I am a mayo diet practitioner for more than 2 years now. I was a lawyer in a law firm with extremely long working hours. I had bad eating habits, I never took note of what food I consume, I just need to be full and it has to be fast!
I did not realize since I am over 30, my body cycle is not as cooperative as when I was younger. I noted that despite how much exercise I did (I was a regular yoga practitioner), it would not balance if I do not eat well. My weight was going up gradually as HIGH and as FAST as a 747 taking off (for those bikram yoga lovers you would understand what I mean).
I gained 9 Kgs within less than 1 year (i.e. 2012 – 2013). One confession, I do not mind a little meat here and there, because my boyfriend said I still look sexy (Thanks BOBIS, love you long time). HOWEVER, I found it hard to breathe during my yoga practices, my stamina was super weak, my belly and ass would pop out of my high waist skirts. My thighs would give each other high fives as I walked, there is no way I could strut fashionably with those thighs. I felt so uncomfortable in my own skin, and I loathe the feeling.
Another thing, I was always hungry I thought about food while I was eating food. I intentionally went to the movies just to buy pop corns extra butter but I did not buy the tickets for the movies.
When I heard about mayo diet in May 2013 from my best friend (thank you Bang Pit), we thought, LETâ€™S DO THIS! WE CAN DO THIS! THIS IS EASY!
We got nothing to lose, the rule of thumb is simple. NO SALT, NO RICE, AND CONSUME ONLY THE CLASSIC DIET MENU FOOD IN THE PROGRAM FOR 13 DAYS. (Available upon request to firstname.lastname@example.org for your reference if you want to try out and home cook).
We tried the classic menu for two days and almost gave up! It was too hard core even for us. I thought, I want to lose weight but I do not want to lose my standards.
So, being a food enthusiastic, I tried to modify the classic mayo diet menu, by adding some herbs, spices and MOST IMPORTANTLY love into our meals, which is VERY helpful for me and my bestie, Bang Pit, in going through the 13 days program, WITHOUT FAIL. We lost 3-5 kgs in our first attempt of the diet, and it was proven that Mayo Diet method really works!
After the program we ate like there is no tomorrow, revenge is the best! But do not get over excited. After the revenge is over, we realized that salt is kinda evil (but we do love our evil don,'t we) and, therefore, the trick is we should watch our salt consumption.
By eating low salt, high protein and no carbs meals (hahaha that's a lie I LOVE RICE, lesser portion of complex carbohydrate (red rice, brown rice, black rice or sweet potatoes)) home cooked fresh and delicious meals, which menu is designed by my mama, we have successfully lost 1 - 2 more kgs.
Now I feel cleaner, healthier, lighter, my skirts fits perfectly, I am happier, my skin glows. I feel like a million bucks when I fit into smaller sizes clothes.
I joined the gym and exercise regularly and never missed a day without sweating it out.
Based on our own experience above, we would like to share with you our eating habit and recommend the following:
I started my diet catering business small, I cater for 8 of my office mates and now I want to share my dishes with you.
