The Science of Sexy by Fit 'n Right: Challenge accepted!

16 November 2011

Last night I told you about my personal struggle with maintaining a healthy weight. In that note, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you guys for your lovely and supportive comments! ♥ I've been underweight all my life and now that I'm in my 20s I believe it is best to address the issue now rather than suffer more in the long run.

Fit 'n Right's invite to the event The Science of Sexy couldn't have come at a better time. Thank God for supportive officemates, I was able to go to One Rockwell yesterday even though I was supposed to have work :)

When we arrived at the venue, we were asked to fill out a card with our details, after which we went through three stations: fitness (where our BMI and body fat levels were measured and analyzed by Mr. Raul Banzon);


food (where Ms. Barni Alejandro of Sexy Chef discussed to us the different types of food we need to eat);

and fashion (where our measurements were taken). We also got the chance to chat with Mr. Rajo Laurel who was very warm and accommodating.

After a healthy lunch:



We were given a short talk by the three experts. It was very interactive and they were all very knowledgeable in their own fields. You should have seen me yesterday; I am such a BIG nerd that I was practically jumping on my seat because of all the new information I was learning haha!


They also discussed with us the new and improved Fit 'n Right which contains L-Carnitine and Green Coffee Extract. L-Carnitine is a fat-burner that aids the body in reducing fat by helping it metabolize the calories it takes in. It helps us burn fat the good way by converting fatty acids into energy. Green Coffee Extract is a relatively new entrant into the weight loss landscape. It is a natural ingredient taken from unroasted green coffee beans but is not present in the coffee we drink everyday. GCE reduces our calorie intake by partially blocking our body's absorption of sugar. The less sugar our body absorbs, the less excess calories that can turn into fat. Daily consumption of L-Carnitine and GCE has shown a significant reduction in fat as opposed to just L-Carnitine alone and just diet and exercise alone.

After the short talk and quick open forum, they told us about The Science of Sexy challenge. In this challenge, all participants are given a 30-day membership to Gold's Gym and a month-long supply of Fit 'n Right. Whoever loses the most percentage of body fat wins a 3 day-2 night stay at Discovery Shores in Boracay AND an outfit by the House of Laurel. Pretty awesome, huh? I love how the prize lets you flaunt your new, sexier body! :)

What's a girl like me to do? Why, the best option possible of course! Rise and say "Challenge accepted!"

We were given Nike bags with the different variants of Fit 'n Right.
I think I'm going to use this as my gym bag :)

I am so excited to do this! I mean, I know I am underweight, but we were advised that you can be underweight, yet still have a high percentage of body fat. I really don't have anything to lose by taking part in the challenge, yet I have a lot to gain. After all, what I really want is to be more fit and healthy, and now thanks to Fit 'n Right I will be getting that and a lot more :)


I'll be updating my blog with regular updates about this challenge. I am so excited to see the results after 30 days of gymming it up and maintaining a healthier lifestyle! Cheers to enjoying the good life with a more fit and healthier body! ♥
