Pineapple diet

Pineapple is a perennial plant native to South America. The plant produces its fruit normally every 3 years, resulting in the sweet fruit that we like so much. Pineapple is a common ally in diets, tricks and secrets related to nutrition. Probably caused by its anti-fluid retention effect.

On numerous pages we find discussions started around the pineapple diet, almost all commenting on how easy it is to lose weight with it, although some also refer to the fact that it can be quite easy to regain the weight back. As we know, sometimes we lose so much on a diet because we lose water, muscle and fat and hold the urge to eat. Unfortunately when we finish or give up, we recover that water and we have a desire to eat that makes us overdo it, as we have less muscle to burn calories, we end up even exceeding the previous weight.

It is for this reason that these diets with great promise, no matter how much users indicate the benefits they have, are not usually so good. Many of them are later with the rebound effect but they do not come to clarify what has happened in the forums in which they previously defended the diet.

Pineapple diet properties

Pineapple contains a large amount of vitamins and minerals in addition to of course water, this like many other fruits gives it a good detoxifying property and can help our body to clean itself properly.

In this way we would lose weight in a clean way and giving our body what it may need during the process.

Our opinion on the pineapple diet

We have observed that there is a low amount of carbohydrates is not too significant because it is compensated with the amount of fruits that we should eat. There is obviously a fairly strong caloric restriction and low protein intake . But let’s go in parts.

Pineapple for its large amount of water, its amount of vitamins and minerals and its high fiber content makes it ideal to promote a loss of accumulated fluids. Although it is also necessary to mention that it has a fairly high glycemic index so it is a fruit that we would not recommend eating daily. Summing up this paragraph, with pineapple we get a drop in fluids.

Second point we will lose weight due to a considerable decrease in calories, although this has a double effect, the metabolism will begin to decrease and you will need fewer calories when we return to our routine .

And finally, we notice a considerable loss of protein and that together with the lack of calories will more than likely cause muscle atrophy, that is, our muscles will lose a certain volume. This, as we have talked about in other articles, is very bad because it will mean that after leaving this diet our body no longer burns so much.

In short … once we leave this diet our body will need fewer calories, it will spend less and if we eat the same as before we will also regain fluids. In other words, the rebound effect is more than guaranteed. As a personal recommendation, we encourage you to include pineapple in your diet from time to time, its benefits are many. But as a fast weight loss diet it will only create more problems for us. Definitely the pineapple diet is not a recommended regimen.
