The Pineapple Diet for Weight Loss

The Pineapple Diet for Weight Loss


The Pineapple Diet for Weight Loss

by Monty Dayton

The pineapple diet, which is also sometimes called the Metzger Pineapple Diet, is a hard eating plan to nail down because there are many imitations online that call themselves the same, but are unfounded plans. While this fad diet might seem really restrictive, there is no denying that there is a lot of interest around this particular weight loss plan.

Eating pineapple is obviously the cornerstone of this diet and eating plan. Pineapple is your snack, it's the main part of every meal, and only tuna and ice water act as supplements. There are many different versions of the pineapple diet, but all of them are based around the same ideas.

Is the pineapple diet a fad diet? Definitely. This eating plan is a fad diet and should be undertaken carefully. With the majority of people, this diet will definitely work as far as weight loss.

Tuna is a great lean meat high in Omega-3s, protein, and low in calories. In addition to this, pineapple gives a ton of energy for a fruit. This, with water, guarantees a diet low in fat and salt. In addition to this, enzymes in the pineapple force the body to work harder to break it down, keeping the metabolism up. There are several concerns with this diet, however.

The first concern is that pineapple is very acidic. This can make it hard to eat in large quantities and can also irritate things like canker sores in the mouth. In addition to this, pineapple contains a lot of sugar, which can be a problem for diabetics who need to watch their sugar levels.

Second, as with any fad diet there is concern over nutritional imbalance. By eating only one or two foods to eat means that you won't be able to possibly get the full range of vitamins and nutrients that you need.

Third, some of the claims made about this diet have not been confirmed through testing. While many fad diets will help dieters lose weight, that doesn't mean that the weight loss is healthy or for the same reasons that the diet purports.

While it works great for some dieters, the pineapple diet is not a weight loss plan that everyone will be able to, or will want to, follow. That said, this is one of those rare fad diets that provides some solid nutrition and can actually help dieters lose weight.
