Another wonderful #DietDiva testimonial from one of our brides – Sonjia Calit!
With my wedding day happening just days after the holidays, I was a bit worried about gaining weight and not having my gown fit right on me. I decided to “make room” for any holiday weight so I wanted to lose about 3-5lbs. It was such perfect timing that Detox Diva was scheduled during the first week of December. Since its debut, I had been waiting to try it! It certainly did not disappoint! Every meal was delicious, and every juice was refreshing! My personal favorites were the spice tinapa rice, vegan ube-coconut panna cotta, and the veggie burrito! Did I say veggie burrito?! I could eat that everyday! I definitely did not feel like I was detoxing, or that I was on a diet! The best part of it all was that by the end of my Detox Diva week, I lost a total of 4 lbs—that’s in 5 days! Because of the weight loss, I was more careful about what I ate during all the Christmas and New Year parties, and I, fortunately, did not gain those 4lbs back. I felt more confident in my dress, and, as a bonus, felt beach ready for my honeymoon right after our wedding. Thank you, Diet Diva, and more power to you! Continue helping people be healthy, and feel fabulous, one diva at a time. May God bless you, and the works of your hands!
What’s the first thing that comes into your mind whenever you hear the word “diet”? Because this we’re sure— it’s definitely not “eating healthy.” On the contrary, most girls feel that going on a diet means not eating at all. For some reason, we have this twisted ideology about losing weight, but we’ll save you the trouble of going through the phase of chewing and spitting by breaking the news to you now: This is not how a healthy diet works.
Not so long ago, Saab Magalona walked down the aisle looking immaculate in a pink Sassa Jimenezfrock. Now, we already told you all there is to know about her punk inspired wedding dress, but what you guys probably don’t know yet is how she slimmed down in order to achieve that perfect fit. And nope, she didn’t starve herself to death.
So, how exactly did Saab manage to shed off those pounds before her wedding day?
Here’s her answer: A balanced diet.
While regularly working out and keeping herself committed to her fitness goals, Saab also sought help from Diet Diva, a 1200-calorie diet delivery service. Lucky for you, we had a chance to chat with its owner, Kakki Teodoro, and she shared with us how our most recent celebrity bride paved her way to a slimmer body a few weeks before her wedding day. Want to know Saab’s secret? Read on and find out.
You’ve been preparing meals for Saab Magalona. Can you tell us more about her fitness goals and what she wanted to achieve in particular?
Saab has been a Diet Diva client since 2014. She basically just wanted a simpler yet effective way of eating healthy and losing weight. After the engagement, Saab then shared with us that she wanted to lose more weight and to look great in her wedding dress while maintaining the same energy level she needs for her busy days.
Knowing her fitness goals, how did you make it happen for Saab? Tell us about the diet she was into.
Saab subscribed to our bestselling 1200 calories-a-day program called “Active Diva” which focuses on calorie-counting and portion control. This is what Diet Diva pioneered in 2012, changing the dynamic of diet delivery services in the country. With Diet Diva, Saab was able to enjoy delicious food, and without realizing it, she started losing weight week after week.
How were her meals “tailor-made” for her?
Two months before the wedding, we started minimizing her rice portion, and it was cut to half. We increased fiber in her diet as well. Her then fianceé, now husband Jim Bacarro, joined as well and we delivered Diet Diva meals to him, too. A month before the wedding, we completely replaced rice with healthier carbs like boiled plantains and sweet potatoes. This way, since Saab is carb-sensitive, there are no energy dips! Two weeks before the wedding, we reduced her calorie intake from 1200 to 1000, and kept meals nutritious and delicious so she could maintain that healthy happy glow for the big day.
Her food posts on Instagram looked so good we almost couldn’t believe she was on a diet! Did she mention her favorites?
Her favorites include Breaded Fish Fillet on Sweet & Sour Sauce over Brown Rice or Sweet Potatoes, Lean Beef Caldereta, Pork Tenderloin, Thai chicken with Basil leaves with Organic Red Mountain Rice, Bangus Fish Fillet, Pork Tapa Breakfast, & Tuna Teriyaki with Potato Marbles.

It is late afternoon in a dance studio in Makati, where the cast of Atlantis Productions’ “Piaf” is winding up rehearsals for the day. The play, which premiered Friday night at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium of RCBC Plaza, has occupied the mind of its lead star, Pinky Amador, for a good number of years.
She’s been wanting to portray Edith Piaf—widely regarded as the greatest popular singer in France—after seeing Joy Virata play the character some 25 years ago in a Repertory Philippines production of the original 1978 script by British playwright Pam Gems.
“I told myself that when I’m older, I’d love to do this role,” says Pinky, who was also in the cast of the same Rep production, but only as a bit player.

Diet simply means the sum of food consumed by a person. Amidst the hustle and bustle of our busy lives, however, we tend to disregard a proper diet. Who among us can honestly say that we eat a good proportion of breakfast, lunch and dinner?
Diet Diva helps us eat well and eat right. With its 1,200 calorie per day menu, Diet Diva can guarantee a loss of 2-6 pounds per week. The secret is in the portion-control and calorie-counting, which, admittedly, we just do not have the time for.
Armed with a resident Nutrionist-Dietician, Clark Dela Riva, and awesome cooks using Momma Diva’s special recipes, we are ensured of balanced and delicious meals that won’t make us feel deprived during our diet.
