5 Day Mayo Diet – Lose 10 Pounds in 5 Days

Let me tell you right from the start that the 5 Day Mayo Diet is not a weight loss plan based on eating only mayonnaise for five days straight!

In fact, there is no mayonnaise in this diet at all. It’s called the Mayo Diet because it was supposedly created at a health institution with the name “Mayo” in it. That makes sense because a diet based on eating mayonnaise would definitely not work very well!

So what is this diet all about then? Well this diet is actually a variation on those popular grapefruit diets.

My Review

So will this diet work wonders for you? Well let’s be realistic here, it’s only five days long. Do you really believe you will lose all the weight you need to in only five days?

Even if you lose ten pounds in five days, do you think you will keep it off once you return to your normal lifestyle diet? I think you know the answer to that one based on your past dieting experiences.

If you need to lose weight for an event in five days from now (like a wedding), you might want to give this diet a shot. Just be prepared to gain back all the weight within a few days.

On the other hand, if you want to lose weight… and actually keep it off for good… you should definitely pass on the 5 Day Mayo Diet.
