The NOT Mayo Clinic Dietwellness
Don’t do what I’m about to share.
If you’re interested in quickly losing some weight and also potentially destroying your body, check out the Mayo Clinic diet - which is in no way associated with the actual Mayo Clinic.
My wife and I did it many years ago (before there was Google and we could’ve easily learned we were going to blow up our intestines) and had some great success. There are a trillion variants of the not Mayo Clinic diet, but the basic meal plan we followed was:
Breakfast: eggs prepared anyway you want ‘em, and a strip or two of bacon.
Lunch: salad with little/no dressing, and some sort of meat (I usually ate some thin slices of turkey or chicken)
Dinner: Basically the same as lunch.
In about 10 days, we lost 5 pounds. Looking back now, that’s TOTALLY unhealthy, but boy was it fun to get such quick results :-)
Turns out many years and much research later, there still is no magic pill or fad diet that will shed pounds. The tried and true recipe is still:
- Consume a reasonable amount of calories.
- Exercise regularly.
So, that’s our plan from here on out :-)
