The Brazilian Diet: The Latest And Greatest Weight Loss Trend

Lifestyle | By Cole Damon | January 19, 2018

Brazilian people are known for their exotic looks which capture our attentions. So what could be the secret to their amazing bodies? The answer might lie in their diet. It is appropriately nicknamed,"The Brazillian Diet". And it apparently works. It's so efficient at weight loss that some health practitioners claim it can lead to the loss of over 12 kg within the span of a month.

Watch that calorie intake

Although it is extremely important to watch your calorie intake, it is equally important to not obsess over it. It makes sense to ensure that what you eat doesn't contain an overwhelming amount of carbohydrates and saturated fats.

Eat in measured portions

Design a diet plan which involves eating food in proper measured intervals so you don't end up overeating. It is okay to eat a few extra mouthfuls here and there but do not deviate from your initial plan.

Don't eat processed foods

This definitely goes without saying. Do not eat any processed foods because they contain a large amount of hidden fats, sugars, sodium and other substances such as conservatives which can harm the body in the long run.

Do not consume alcohol

It is extremely important to not consume alcohol at all during the Brazilian diet. This is because alcohol can easily thwart whatever progress your body is making and you'll have to start over. Please don't waste your hard work.

Try eating more healthy food

Incorporate a diet which involves the use of vegetables, fruits, fish, cattle and chicken. Drink a good deal of water to help with proper digestion of the food otherwise. Remember - water is the second most important food you can use for your diet.

Differentiate between what is important

It is important to make a clear difference between what your body actually needs and if you're just satisfying the never ending desire fuelled by gluttony. The Brazilian diet says you must eat to survive, not the other way round.

8 hour breaks

It is important to give your body at least 8 hours of break for it to process al the foods you have ingested. Otherwise it would backfire and the Brazilian diet would end miserably. Use an app if you can't keep track of time.

Food should be beneficial only

If the food is not beneficial then do not eat it. So if you consume fizzy drinks alcohol, fast food and other heavy ingredients, you will end up being getting faster than at the beginning of the diet.

The last day of the weekend should be a little bit more relaxing. You can indulge yourself in moderate amounts of the foods of your choice such as pizzas or other fast foods. But do not go overboard. As for the diet plan, use Saturday's plan.

Did You Know...


Not all celebrities have fame and fortune, some are just famous – and in a ton of debt. They came from rags to riches, then went back to rags. Whether they’ve filed bankruptcy, ended up in court, or just can’t stop spending, celebrities mismanage their money just like everyone else. They just hide it well.


50 Cent coined the term “wanksta,” then “partied like it was his birthday” until he filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2015. The rapper was said to be anywhere between $10 million and $50 million in debt. In 2016, a federal bankruptcy court judge in Connecticut approved a plan for the founder of G-Unit to pay his debts back. He was able to get his bankruptcy discharged in February of the following year.


Following a 45-year-long career in Hollywood, acting in more than 70 films, actor Gary Busey found himself in more debt than he was worth. In 2012, it was reported that Busey owed between $500,000 and $1 million worth of debt, but only had $50,000 to his name. The 74-year-old actor owed money to hospitals, banks, the L.A. Waterworks District, and even a storage company. He filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy that same year. Despite his longstanding career in Hollywood, Busey's net worth is now only $500,000.


Burt Reynolds is still worth five million dollars, but his battles with debt date back more than 20 years. Between bad investments and a pricey divorce from actress Loni Anderson, the 1970s superstar had to deal with over $10 million in debt and decided to file Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 1996. While testifying in a 1994 custody hearing, the South Florida native said he spent $40 million getting through his divorce.


The former Hollywood bad boy, Charlie Sheen owes the IRS nearly $5 million. But that's not all. In 2016, his net worth was reportedly still as high as $150 million, but he was nonetheless $12 million in debt at the time – including mortgages, legal fees, and taxes. That same year, reported Sheen owed nearly $300,000 on an American Express card alone.
