Here's some flaws in the monotonous system:
- Eating the same foods every day does not give a person the variety in nutrition needed. We need a wide variety of foods to get the vitamins and minerals our bodies require. Eating the same foods over and over can actually lead to illness.
- I find it doubtful that a person could continue eating that way the rest of their life. So what if you lose a few pounds by eating monotonously, as soon as you stop eating that way the pounds will come back on.
- Mealtime should be an enjoyable time, not a drudgery of repetitive meals.
As a compulsive overeater, I am all for eating less at mealtime, and all for little tricks that help me push the plate away, but this is one "diet tip" I will not bother with.
I would love to hear your opinions. (Check out the article on the link I provided above.)
