The Mayo Clinic Diet review
When you see the name of this diet you might get the impression that the diet comes from well known
Mayo clinic but in fact Mayo clinic and this diet are not associated at
all. The name somehow adheres to this strange diet and follows it
through the years…
I would say it's
strange and confusing because in this one, just like in grapefruit diet
plan, the magic ingredient is Grapefruit.
It's funny to discover
how easy it is to convince dieters in such a rumor like: grapefruit
assists in burning the fat. When such assumption is made the dieter
allowed consuming almost whatever he wants and still achieve weight
Is the diet working?
It's really hard to
believe that the eating of high fat ham and eggs for breakfast, and
having meat, vegetables and salad dressings for lunch or dinner, might
lead to significant weight loss even thought half of the grapefruit is
consumed with each meal. With this kind of diet, if it's
really working, why should you starve yourself and choose another plan?
What is in the Menu?
When we check the diet plan and
see different kind of food in unlimited amounts, any kinds of
vegetables in unlimited amounts too, any kinds of salads or dressings
it's hard to see how exactly the dieter can get rid of
I'm afraid that half
glass of a grapefruit juice or eating half grapefruit will not help to
lose all of the calorie intakes.
Theory behind the diet
Mayo clinics diet is supposedly
banning main energy source complex carbohydrates and makes them to less
Although the fact that
grapefruit is burning the fat is right, which is still unproved, this
diet plan is unbalanced and can't be useful as long term
weight loss plan.
What are Pro's and Con's of the diet?
Fat and fried foods are known to
be causing increased risk some serious diseases: cancer and heart
illnesses and all of them can be prevented with reducing the excessive
To summarize, this diet plan
couldn't be the good one because of its weak sides:
It's hard to believe
that it could work for long term weight management
It's poor in complex
Consuming of large amounts of
fats can cause developing of various diseases
Contrary to initial goal of
losing weight, the dieter may gain weight because of the food cravings
Even from nutritional point the
Diet is unbalanced>
Too much meat could be another
Is it healthy diet?
It's obviously not
preferred option for healthy and long term weight management.
Even if it's
associated with well known institute it doesn't make this
diet plan to one that could be safely recommended to anyone.
Moreover, during research about
Mayo Clinics diet plan I came across with various forms and menus of
diet with this name. For my humble opinion they all are taken from
another diet plans and somehow got named as Mayo Clinics diet plan.
How would you summarize the diet?
My advice will be to avoid diet
plans with this name and instead choose another diet plan (it's not
difficult at all with such kind of wealth of diet plans) - You can easily find the one
which fits you and provides what it promises; is proven as healthy and safe for
long term weight loss.
