I’m not normally a fan of restrictive and crash diets. In a way, when
you have to starve yourself for three to five days, the benefits rarely
outnumber the negatives. But when it comes to the pineapple diet, you
spend those five days eating one of the most nutritious, dense fruits.
And let’s be honest, pineapple is very tasty! Difference between the pineapple diet and other diets
The basis of the pineapple diet is simple: you eat pineapple along with
other nutritious foods for five days. The trick is to replace some of
the less nutritious foods with pineapple. But the main thing is that you
can follow this diet for only five days.
Anything more, and you’re
doing more harm than good. The pineapple diet is a mono diet. What does that mean? That means
it’s a highly restrictive diet. Gradual diets are not as restrictive,
and you can follow them for more than one week. On the other hand,
anything more than five days on the pineapple diet, and you’re risking a
threat to your health.
The trick with this diet is to adopt it only when you need to get
rid of a few extra pounds. You can adopt the diet occasionally, but not
on a regular basis. In the past few years, mono diets have been
demonized, and some rightfully so. They are quite drastic and last way
too long. But the pineapple diet is different because it doesn’t last
The basis of the diet is the consumption of pineapple. You need to
consume four to five pounds of pineapple per day. And this is what you
get in terms of macro and micronutrients:
Every diet has its pros and cons. No diet is perfect, and the trick
is finding the right one for you. And the right one for the situation
you’re in. Therefore, let’s take a look at the pros and cons of this
diet. After that, you can decide whether or not it’s the right one for
you at this moment.
Just so that you better understand how the diet helps you, let’s take a look at some benefits of consuming pineapple.
This is how a typical day looks during the five days of following the diet. For breakfast, you get 2-3 slices of pineapple with 1 cup of
low-fat yogurt and oatmeal. Your first snack includes 1 glass of
pineapple juice and one hard-boiled egg. Lunch is usually the versatile meal.
You can choose to eat grilled
tuna with 1 cup of pineapple. Another option is a simple broth prepared
with vegetables of your choice. Aside from tuna, you can also grill one
fillet of chicken.
Your afternoon snack is again a glass of pineapple
juice and low-fat yogurt. For dinner, people opt for chicken and pineapple salad. This salad also includes tomatoes and asparagus.
Basically, for your lunch and dinner, you can combine any fish,
chicken, or turkey fillet with pineapple. For even bigger benefits, some
people consume a cup of green tea or a glass of apple cider vinegar and
honey in the morning before breakfast. This helps you flush even more
