The Just Married Diet



Now this is a diet I could follow! Why? Because even though it's main objective is to be healthy when most couples just want to snuggle together on the couch and get take-away, it also seems indulgent, you forget it's a diet and see it more as just a meal plan. What's more is that it utilizes leftovers, something I always get stuck with in the fridge and forget about until there's some funny smell emanating from the said fridge. Like the Bikini Diet, this diet is adapted from the same website

Oh and the lunch ideas aren't too bad. I almost feel guilty for not thinking out my own lunch ideas. Almost...
