There’s a New Diet Where You Eat Nothing But Mac and Cheese
I can’t decide if this idea is brilliant or twisted.
There’s a new diet floating around that promises you can lose weight by eating nothing but delicious macaroni and cheese. But there’s a major downside. Afterwards, you may never want mac and cheese again.
The diet is called the Boredom Diet. Basically, the principle is that if you eat only one food, eventually you’ll get sick of it and eat less.
Researchers studied the diet by having one group of women eat nothing but mac and cheese, and another group eat normal food.
They found that after just one week, the group eating mac and cheese was eating an average of 100 calories less per meal than the other group. Over time, that’s going to lead to weight loss.
But it’s gradual weight loss . . . and really, could you eat nothing but mac and cheese or any other single food for six months or a year?
