Pumpkin comes in season with Halloween. Little do we know that if we would just add more pumpkin to more seasonal feasts’ meals, we wouldn’t have as much trouble shedding extra holiday pounds. In fact, we wouldn’t need to do that at all, because the extra pounds won’t even be there!

The first time I found out about the power of a pumpkin diet was many years ago. My gran had a cow! That one year they had a huge pumpkin harvest as well and she decided to start adding pumpkin to the cow’s diet. Very shortly this poor cow started losing lots of weight. My gran got very scared and when the vet came to examine the animal, she had to answer around 5000 questions. When the doctor heard that my gran was feeding pumpkin to the cow, he asked no more questions! Since then, when anyone in our family needed to shed some weight, she would always kindly offer to eat some pumpkin. In fact, my mom lost around 16 pounds within a couple of months just by drinking fresh pumpkin juice every day! (***fresh is key here***)
So, how does this pumpkin diet work and how can pumpkin diet help you get rid of extra pounds pretty fast?

For 4 – 8 days you eliminate all sugar and sugary fruit (such as bananas and grapes) from your diet as long as bad carbs (such as white bread, pastries, pasta, etc). Drink lots and lots of water (maybe even more than usual 2 litres a day) and add pumpkin to EACH meal. Pumpkin can be consumed raw, boiled, baked (great to add in salads), juiced, pureed, whatever you decide! One thing – DON’T USE CANNED PUMPKIN, it’s of no value!
