Here are the solutions to your questions about ‘whats, what’s why’s and what-tos’ about mono dieting.

What exactly is the mono diet?

A mono diet (also known as monotropic diet is about eating the same foods for all meals during the day, and sustaining an eating pattern for couple of days. The diet regimen is easy and simple to implement. There aren’t any complicated meals or smoothies to follow in this plan!

It’s time to make ‘Just one meal on repeat’ your mantra for during this detox session in the wake of having listened to the advice Dr Dimple Jangda Ayurveda as well as Gut Health Coach has to say in her latest Instagram post.

Why should you choose to go on a mono-diet?

We’re all for variety as the best part of life, however your diversified diet may be placing the risk of putting too much stress for your organs of digestion. Do you think your liver, pancreas and gallbladder, stomach and intestines require a break?

When you follow the mono diet is that you consume one meal per day for a couple of days. Dr. Jangda says that there aren’t many complex food groups to be broken down so your digestive system won’t have to spend as much time and energy trying to figure out how to digest the meal.

Have you ever thought that the liver is responsible for more than 500 functions? It is the biggest organ that detoxifies and is an essential component of the main organ for filtration. Your liver can do a number of things in one go. It transforms waste into products, cleanses blood, and then metabolizes medicines and nutrients, providing your body with some the most essential proteins.

A mono diet will make your liver less active. Because your diet is easy and predictable your liver can fulfill its digestive duties quickly. There’s now a better emphasis on getting rid of the toxic substances from your body.

What should you consider when doing mono-dieting?

The most important thing to remember is that a simple meal does not mean that it’s a nutrition-deficient food. Expert health coach advises, “Do not go to extremes. Don’t focus for one thing.” We understand that eating chocolate throughout the day’ is an ideal childhood wish come true but it’s hazardous for your health. Also, a diet that is based on fruit like grapefruit or bananas. Don’t fool yourself into believing that eating fruit are always healthy. One food item isn’t enough to meet the nutritional needs of the body. Beyond nutritional deficiency this lapse could result in loss of muscle and other Ayurvedic imbalances within your body.


Instead, choose a vegetarian meal with a balanced amount of carbohydrate and protein. Expert advises to eat food that is easy to digest.
