Yes, mushrooms are phenomenal fungi with many health benefits. It’s no surprise then that adding more mushrooms to your diet is a smart and easy way to enjoy a healthier lifestyle. But before we go any further, it’s important to explain what we mean by a mushroom diet. There is a lot of misleading information online about what it is and how it can not only make you lose weight quickly, but how it can make you lose body fat in all the right places. A mushroom diet simply means regularly replacing meals that would normally include meat with mushrooms instead. If replacing meat entirely seems a bit extreme, you could also use a ” blendatarian ” approach, mixing in a little meat with mushrooms so that overall meat content is reduced. This should not be confused with the M-Plan diet made popular by pop star Katy Perry back in That diet claims that eating mushrooms for 14 days can magically target fat loss in specific problem areas, resulting in tinier waistlines, slimmer thighs, and thinner upper arms while not losing any weight in the bust area. Of course, such claims are false.
A new diet fad claims that replacing one meal a day with mushrooms will help women shed fat, but only in certain parts of the body — the waist, hips and thighs — but not the bust. Experts say that there’s nothing magical about mushrooms — replacing one meal a day with any vegetable would help a person lose weight, said Katherine Tallmadge, a registered dietitian, and op-ed contributor to LiveScience. And the claim about selective weight loss doesn’t hold up to science. How people lose, and also gain, weight is determined largely by genetics, Tallmadge said, but factors such as age and smoking habits also play a role. Studies show older women are more likely to gain weight around their belly, likely due to changing hormone levels, Tallmadge said. Smoking has also been linked to an increased risk of gaining weight in the midsection. However, studies suggest that certain exercises may help people lose weight selectively: there’s evidence that walking is an effective exercise for helping people lose belly fat, Tallmadge said.
