The great thing about food is that there are so many different styles, types and variations that we as a human race can put together to concoct and to try. The possibilities really are endless when you sit back and truly think about all of the different foods that we are able to consume in a lifetime. Variety is what makes the world the place in which it is, so why are more and more people beginning to gravitate to the notion that a regimented and set list of foods is best for better health and dieting? This notion, and way of approaching a better, healthier lifestyle is baffling to many, especially since certain fruits provide us with different nutrients.
Although it’s certainly not a word you’ll find in the dictionary any time soon, as the phenomenon is still in its infancy, mono-fruiting, or eating one type of fruit without introducing any other fruits or foods into your diet for long periods of time, is a common dietary lifestyle that many are starting to partake in. Mono-fruiting goes far beyond only eating a strawberry or a banana everyday. Entire meals consist of one single, solitary fruit, and this is the basis of the diet.
Now, according to those who lead a mono-fruit lifestyle, there are little to no side effects from eating one thing for every meal. Some even claim that they are more clear in the body and mind, stronger physically and have better focus and attention. Many attribute these new feelings to a cleansing of the system so to speak. Eating only one thing, gives only one type of nutrient, everything else being flushed from the system once the lifestyle begins.
Those in the medical field, however, have obvious reservations about mono-fruiting. The reason why a good, healthy diet is classified as having everything in it, from a multitude of food groups and sources is because we as humans get our nutrients, vitamins, and minerals in different amounts, and forms from the food we consume. For instance, eating a banana every single day will give you as much potassium as your body needs, but it won’t give you nearly enough protein. Eating large amounts of fruit can also upset our digestive system and lead to unpleasant situations like gas, cramps and loose stool.
If you’re brave enough to try mono-fruiting, do it safely under the guidance of a professional. Telling others around you of your dietary changes and needs is important, as they can help monitor you as you drastically alter your lifestyle.
