Del Monte dares you to Eat. Drink. Run. (Be FIT!)

I'm Dani, your typical Payat-Taba girl T_T

It's a struggle for most people to lose weight and Del Monte Philippines recognized the need to solve this problem by coming up with a health campaign dubbed "Dare to be Fit 'N Right." It emphasizes the importance of fitness by:

1. Encouraging people to EAT and DRINK healthy food products,
2. organizing healthy lifestyle activities such as fun RUNs and
3. introducing a new and effective way to Be FIT.

To formally launch the campaign, a bloggers event was held last October 23 at Taste Asia SM MOA. Good thing I signed up because sports scientist/master coach/ultimate hunk Jim Saret was there to give a lecture on Fast Intense Training (FIT), a workout strategy that enables one to burn at least 400 calories in a span of only four minutes.


Need proof? Here's the video:

FIT is touted as the most effective way to burn fat. OMG.

During the demo, I thought, "Hey, that looks do-able."

Next thing I knew, I was already doing push-ups infront of everyone. Meh.

Zoom in and LOL at my face plsz

 Argonaut made it seem so easy :(

Coach Jim also noted in his lecture that exercise alone is not enough to keep one fit. Proper diet should always be an essential part of the process. It's necessary to cut down on fatty foods and increase intake of vegetables and fruits. Healthy juices such as Del Monte Fit 'N Right also help as it contains L-Carnitine, a natural substance that speeds up the body's ability to burn calories and fats.

TIP: Drink Fit 'n Right 2 hours before exercise to speed up your metabolism!
