It is almost a guarantee that a new diet fad will come out at least once a month if not more frequently. People are always trying to lose weight and they usually want to lose a large amount in a small amount of time. When they try these fad diets they find that sometimes they work, until you stray even a bit from the diet. If you deviate even a little or go back to the way you were eating before you will gain most of that weight that was lost back and can sometimes even end up gaining more. Now there is a new fad diet out there that is called the Pineapple Diet.
The Pineapple Diet consists of eating nothing but tuna and pineapple. Pineapple is a diuretic so you don’t retain liquids when you are eating it. The problem is that it also does not contain many calories so you are going to be lacking the energy that you will need to get through the day. The vitamins and minerals that are found in pineapple are great for you, but you aren’t going to be full for very long. This is why the people that came up with this diet plan say that you should eat tuna as well. Tuna has proteins and omegas that are good for you and that will help to fill your stomach.
So does it work? Sort of. If you eat nothing but tuna and pineapple you will definitely lose a good amount of weight however it is all water weight. You will not lose inches. You will not gain muscle. The second that you eat another kind of food that water weight will return and you will be right back where you started. This can lead to a lot of yo-yo dieting and lead you to gain more weight than when you started. Remember, losing a lot of weight all at once is not good for your body. It needs to be done gradually with a balanced diet and exercise.
