What will you say if I tell you that you can lose 40 pounds within three months just by eating burrito without doing any exercises at all? Unless you are living in a cave, then you probably will regard this fact with skepticism. Well the truth is, Justin Hall, as reported by MyFox has lost 40 pounds on burrito and salad without any exercises at all!

The staggering fact is, he lost 40 pounds without any exercises at all! He planned to continue this diet until the end of the year. My only concern is, I am not sure whether or not the producer of the burrito that he consumed is behind this whole fad diet story (Justin did mention a specific brand in the news).

So a burrito diet consists of eating a burrito, fruit and salad in a day. So you can’t have anything else beside those three things, and take note that you are only allowed one burrito each day. It’s perfectly understandable since the burrito itself contains a whooping 1300 calories! What I don’t understand is how a man can survive on this extremely boring menu for a long time!

Theoretically it should work. By restricting your calories intake to a certain amount, you can literally lose weight (that’s the principle behind sacred heart diet). But it’s quite hard and possibly unhealthy to stick with this kind of starvation diet for a prolonged amount of time. Not to mention that it’s boring as hell.

But I have my skepticism on this kind of thing, especially when the dieter blatantly mentions a specific brand of food that he uses. I

Is this a marketing pitch disguised behind a dieter story or is this a real confession from a dieter with no money involved. What do you think?

    I think it's crap. But I bet that there will be people who are thick enough to fall into this news.

    Well obviously if he live on Buritto for three months then it's no rocket science that he lose weight. But why on earth that he has to put a lot emphasis on the brand of the burrito.

    Well it may be true. But of course it would be more convincing if he didn't mention the brand.

    Think I will be giving this a miss. To be honest it looks like a dangerous diet to try?

    Drinking only water for a month or two will also help you to loose amazing amounts of weight. Doesn't mean it is healthy for you, this sounds like a starvation diet to me.

    this sounds terrible for me... I can't stand with only ONE buritto in a day, and fruits only... ggrrr... terrible...

    How do I gain weight effectively?

    I can't understand why a certain brand would wnat to be associated with such a diet?

  9. Cherry said...

    Well because it will give the particular brand good publicity. Imagine if you are selling a porridge (let's call it Great Porridge) then what would a news saying 'Great Porridge Made Me Lose Weight' do? It will surely boost your sales and credibility.

    What's Burrito? Something like a pancake or bread?

    cbenc12: one of the easiest way to gain weight is to eat more protein and carbohydrates :).

    I have a tendency to eat this way naturally. I'm not hungry as soon as I wake up in the morning, by the time I have a chance to get food after my classes I'm starving, so I usually eat one huge meal a day. I don't get hungry until late at night, and then I don't want to eat before bed because I won't sleep. I can see how this burrito diet would work well for me and probably a lot of other people too. The only problem I would have with it is that I drink a few nights a week. It's good to feel satisfied when I do eat. If i try to eat that god awful nutrisystem crap I finish my microwaved slop and I'm like, now I'm gonna have dinner! Actually I'll say I went a whole summer when I was too busy to eat I had one BK meal a day (soooo healthy I know) and stopped exercising and I stayed the exact same weight. I looked awfully sloppy though... Just wanted to add my 2 cents.
