Not a new concept, it has been making waves through social media for some time and we were curious, can it really be sustainable and, more importantly, a healthy way to lose weight? For those of you who are unsure, the mono diet is where you eat one food all the time. Most claim it’s a healthy way of life, but we’re not convinced The mono diet requires the dieter to restrict consumption to any one type of food with weight-loss in mind. The diet commonly manifests as a fruitarian diet, in which the dieter consumes only fruit for a certain period of time. For one food, possibly egg, purely because it’s the number one reference protein food, which contains all your essential amino acids. Otherwise turkey, chicken or salmon would be okay choices. But anyway back to those eggs Last day! Not one bit. If you want to lose weight, be smart about it.
When you hear about a buzzy new diet that promises to help you lose weight fast, it’s easy to be tempted even when it’s clearly a crash diet that’s not worth your time. This over-the-top weight-loss plan involves eating only one food item say, apples or type of food usually, fruits or veggies and nothing else. Like, at all. The diet gained recent popularity thanks to a YouTuber known as ” Freelee the Banana Girl ,” who—you guessed it—eats close to 30 bananas daily. Sure, back in the day okay, last year, illusionist Penn Jillette credited his pound weight loss to eating nothing but potatoes, while Matt Damon allegedly once ate only chicken breasts to drop weight for a role. But just because the cool kids are doing it—and shedding pounds like crazy in the process—doesn’t mean Mono-meals are where it’s at. The body doesn’t have to work as hard, which allegedly decreases bloating and maximizes nutrient absorption, satisfying your body’s needs with fewer calories and, maybe even putting the kibosh on junk food cravings.
I diet the should do mono
You got this! Example: I have a friend who works for Pizza Hut. At first she loved it. Free pizza leftovers every day! The majority of choices are based on foods which are bland as hell; bananas, carrots, eggs, etc. It was ridiculously popular a few years ago, and as the name suggests, it involved eating only cabbage soup. When I asked why she was punishing herself with this nonsense, she broke my heart in real time with her reply. This was basically an unintentional version of the mono diet, and it was not fun. Ironically, I do it to my kids now! Heck, last year, Freelee the banana girl released an e-book explaining her diet which consisted of, you guessed it, only bananas. It sold copies in 24 hours.
