What is a Mono-Diet?

A diet where you favor one particular food for an extended period of time, often to control weight or reap its nutritional benefits.

 While eating one food regularly may not be harmful, avoiding all foods but one can affect your health.

Excerpt from the article:

Focus on quality. “If you’re going to eat one thing every single day, make sure it’s the highest quality,” says Layne Lieberman-Liebelson, R.D., author of the upcoming “Beyond the Mediterranean Diet.” For example, if you love fish, make sure you choose ones low in mercury, such as wild salmon and mackerel, or go for organic vegetables and legumes, such as sweet potatoes and lentils.

Eat a mini mono-meal. Maybe your workday is too unstructured to commit to the mono-meal. You can still reap the benefits of a routine eating plan with your afternoon snack. Examples: “A 6-ounce container of organic low-fat or fat-free plain or vanilla yogurt with an ounce of walnuts or dry-roasted almonds,” says Lieberman-Liebelson. “Or make your banana the mono and rotate the prep: Pair it with either 6 ounces of plain Greek yogurt, one tablespoon of natural almond or peanut butter, or put it in a smoothie with one cup of baby kale and a half cup of almond milk.”
