Del Monte Philippines launched its Dare to be Fit ‘n Right campaign last October 23, 2009 at Taste Asia in SM Mall of Asia.
I was greeted by the sight of Del Monte Fit ‘n Right centerpieces and balloons which adorned the venue. I’ve always thought of Fit ‘n Right juice drinks as just another one of those low-calorie diet drinks for guiltless indulgence, but it’s actually a lot more than that.
Albeit we were given a whole lot of Del Monte Fit ‘n Right reference materials, I’ll make it short and sweet as not to put my readers to sleep. Fit ‘n Right food and beverage products contain L-Carnitine, a substance that is naturally found in our bodies. L-Carnitine helps burn fat, so with supplementary L-Carnitine, proper diet, and regular exercise, one can achieve ideal body weight and lead a healthier life.
Sports scientist and master coach Jim Saret amazed us with a brief demo of how you can be fit by working out for only four (4) minutes a day. Through Fast Intense Training (FIT) , you can burn at least 400 calories in a span of four minutes.
Impossible! I used to work out in a gym and a full hour on the stair climber machine only burned 300-350 calories, whereas an hour on the treadmill burned even less.
The FIT workout is characterized by fast bursts of intensive exercise. In four minutes, you do a combination of push-ups, squats, lunges, crunches, and body weight lifting. One of the best things about the FIT workout is you don’t need equipment that are costly and would most likely just end up as clutter in your house. So here it is, the formula to getting fit and right fast: a sensible diet — that means cutting down on fatty food and eating more fruits and veggies, Del Monte Fit ‘n Right drinks and snacks to pump up your metabolism, and a few minutes a day for your FIT workout. Be warned though that since Del Monte Fit ‘n Right products are not sugar-free, they are not recommended for diabetics. We were assured that Del Monte is doing something about it though, and so sugar-free Fit ‘n Right products are probably not so far behind.
Ever since I had kids, I’ve never really lost the extra pounds I gained from the pregnancies. I don’t have time to go to the gym because I’m a hands-on working mom. The FIT workout is perfect for me. I’m determined to stick with the formula and see results! Del Monte’s Dare to be Fit ‘n Right campaign will culminate in the Dare to be Fit ‘n Right Fun Run 2009 which will take place on November 22, 2009.
