A semi-vegetarian or flexitarian diet is described on Wikipedia as “one that is plant-based with the occasional inclusion of meat products. Lately, I’ve been thinking of adopting this kind of diet primarily for my weight loss efforts. I wouldn’t mind reaping its health benefits in the long run, too.
The last time I checked my weight (just this morning!), it was 126 lbs. I’m 5’4″ tall and wear a size M, sometimes L. My weight usually goes up to 130 lbs. during weekends (when I tend to overeat!) and go back to 124 lbs. during weekdays when I get to control my appetite (most of the time, ehem). That’s been the case for me in the past months and somehow, I’m a bit disappointed with the results of my weight loss efforts so I’m thinking, maybe this flexitarian diet could work on me. Haha.
You see, my target weight is 118 lbs. and my dream weight is 3 lbs. lighter than that. I’ve also been documenting my weight loss efforts on this blog and I realized my last update was December 2013 pa. (I even did the popular GM diet before and had good results.) It only means one thing, and that is, I’m not making any progress. Blame that to my love affair with sweets, rice and red meat(?).
When my shopping fast is over, I’d like to challenge myself on this new diet. Who knows, I might just be able to embrace it for good? Waaaah, sana kayanin ko!
Have you tried going vegetarian or semi-vegetarian before?
