The eggplant diet is said to be one of the most delicious and easiest mono-diets. It lasts for 14 days and it is the optimal time for achieving the best results (after this period of time there is a stand-by in the loss of weight). You have to be wondering how many kilograms it is possible to lose in two weeks. The number is up to 8 kilograms. Of course, you shouldn’t forget the golden rule for weight loss, that the closer you are to the desired weight, the fewer kilograms you would lose with the diet. It means that if you want to lose 3-5 kilograms to your ideal weight, then you would have to try harder than the ones that would like to lose 20-30 kilograms.

An example of a menu for the eggplant diet
The breakfast should be the same for a two-week time: An eggplant and tomato salad
How it’s done: Take one large eggplant, cut it into half, salt it with sea salt and leave it for 10 minutes. After that, cut it into small pieces, put it in a salad bowl, add a tomato also cut into small pieces (or 1 dl boiled tomato), add one spoon of olive oil and leave it for a while. You can have a cup of coffee or green tea along with it. Of course, the tea or the coffee should be without any sugar.
An eggplant soup. You need one or two eggplants, cut it into slices and lightly fried with butter. Add some celery cut into small pieces, fresh sliced peppers, a carrot, garlic and poach it for five minutes. You can add parsley in the soup. You can eat unlimited amount of the soup.
Poached eggplant with vegetables. One baked eggplant, spiced with some onion. You are also allowed to eat two slices of ryed bread, no more than 30 grams and a cup of low-fat yoghurt or low-fat sour milk.
Idea for the next days: As you saw it in the examples above, it is all about eggplants in each meal. Since the breakfast is always the same, use your creativity for the other two meals. It can be grilled eggplant with soya sauce or young cheese, baked eggplant and served with a few pieces of tuna, poached eggplant in its own sauce with some seasonal vegetables. There are numerous recipes, all very delicious.
The eggplant diet, as well as any other diet, is not very well-balanced with nutritious elements. So you are not supposed to follow it for more than two weeks. It is best to repeat the diet after a while (about two months), instead of repeating it right away. While on a diet, the body loses some of the elements that are essential for the normal activity. Therefore, this diet is not recommendable for people with weak immune system, as well as for people with allergic reaction to the eggplant. The rest could use a multivitamin addition to the diet. And of course, the physical activity, which means at least 30 minutes of fast walking every day.
