One food. All meals. Several days. The Coach outlines the benefits and guidelines of “mono-meals”: a single food eaten as an entire meal for a few days as a healthy, convenience, gimmick-free weight-control method.
Diet doesn’t need to be complicated. This is a simple approach.
- No number-crunching of calories or macros.
- Simplifies life and approach to diet.
- Great way to kickstart a weight loss program and begin an ongoing healthy diet strategy. Not a gimmick.
- Terrific for people who are not in control of their own schedules, like business travelers.
- Can jumpstart a weight-loss program.
Two reasons mono-meals work well
1) Aid digestion.
2) Re-connects you to your biofeedback: hunger-satiety feedback loops. Forces eating only when hungry.
- Limit meals to one [healthy] food and one food only for a few days (nine days up to as long as three weeks.)
- Select whole foods that are unprocessed and nutrient-dense. Good choices would be:
- Brown rice.
- Potatoes or sweet potatoes.
- Roasted, unsalted nuts.
- Soft fruits like bananas. During a recent business trip, Scott ate seven to nine bananas for lunch each day.
- Broccoli, carrots, or other fibrous veggies would be poor choices for mono-meals because they’re not as energy-dense as the others listed.
- Choose something that’s simple to prepare and simple to consume.
- Eat until you’re satisfied.
