There are so many different diets being offered in the market, it’s almost so impossible to keep track of each one. But perhaps if you categorize them, it’ll be easier to remember. Some diets fall into the crazy ones, and the others fall under the celebrity trends category. The Boredom diet borders between probable validity and craziness.
ABC News recently featured this on Good Morning America. According to registered dietician, Keri Glassman, people will eventually lose weight if they keep eating the same food over and over again. The diet suggests that people who eat the same food for several days tend to shed more calories.
According to a study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, people who eat a variety of foods have the tendency to take in more calories, but those who eat the same food all the time develop a distaste for their meals and tend to eat less.
Popular TV News Anchor and Talk Show Host, Anderson Cooper said in one of his shows that he keeps to a few meals and ABC News theorizes that it might be what’s keeping the News anchor fit.
Boredom Diet Can Be Valid If Done For A Long Term
According to Extreme Makeover Personal Trainer, Chris Powell, this type of diet may have its validity if done for a long time. Eventually, people will get bored of what they’re eating and will slow down on their food intake.
However, he points out that the idea of Boredom Diet gives people the idea that they can eat anything and end up overloading on pizza, burgers and foods that are considered unhealthy. For boredom diet to take effect, a person has to do it for a long period of time until his system starts responding to the habituation process. What happens to all the carbs before then?
Nutrition is the primary setback of this particular diet as calorie control and satisfaction are the two things given more importance. In the recent study conducted, women were made to eat Mac and Cheese everyday and they have reportedly reduced their calories.
According to Keri Glassman, Boredom Diet can work if meals are nutritionally balanced. Otherwise, the body will be deprived of the nutrients it needs and requires to function properly.
