The Pioppi Diet: Its Sustainability as a Diet

The Pioppi Diet does allow one to consume less food and calories. When we consume less calories the we will eventually lose weight, most especially when one decides to start incorporating an active lifestyle alongside the diet.

However, this is still dependent on your starting weight and existing diet and lifestyle.

Regarding its sustainability, it is debatable. For the Pioppi Diet to be done for more than 21-days is hard to maintain since it omits a whole food group.

The Pioppi Diet

The diet was created by Dr. Aseem Malhotra, a cardiologist, and Donal O'Neill, who was an international athelete. They both advocate for the low-carb, high-fat diet plan.

This diet encourages eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, nuts, legumes, and fish. It also includes lifestyle changes such as getting adequate sleep, regular socialization, and a weekly-24 hour fast.

The diet discourages red meat, starchy carbs (bread and pasta), and sweet treats.
