It may sound crazy, but it is not impossible at all.

What is Tuna and Apple Diet?
This is an extremely low-calorie diet that consists on a portion of tuna and/or an apple each day. The total calorie content of this diet is restricted to around 50 calories per day. The diet is completed with water and coffee.
How does it work?
Tuna is an excellent source of protein with nearly zero fat content. It is great for anyone who wants to lose weight without affecting their lean muscle mass. It contains all essential amino acids. Canned tuna also contains some omega three fatty acid that are excellent for your health.
The apple provides some carbohydrate that the body needs daily. It also contains pectin which is a fiber that dampens appetite. The coffee also boosts the metabolism and thus helps in fast weight lose.
How Can You Go on Tuna and Apple Diet?
This is an extreme weight loss diet and should never be practiced without a dietician’s supervision. This diet is not to be followed by teenagers, older women, pregnant ladies or anyone who is breast feeding. Some other physical issues can also be the deciding factor. So, consulting a dietician is an absolute necessity. This diet can work for extremely obese people who want to lose the first few kilos quickly. Once someone does that it gives a boost of confidence that makes the rest of the weight loss journey easier through healthier diet hand exercises. This diet should not be followed for more than a month (unless you are playing the lead in The Mechanist 2).
You can try anything between 250-800 calorie when you are following a low calorie diet. 250 is the lowest that you can go. You can add some fresh vegetables, eggs with the tuna and apple to increase the intake to some extent.
It is extremely important to keep yourself hydrated in this period. It is better to rest at home and avoid any heavy exercise. Meditation, yoga and breathing exercises are the best options for this period. Getting the blood pressure monitored regularly is also a must. If you feel unwell, it is better to give up immediately. If you start feeling dizzy, grab a SOS and let that take care of you.
Also, this diet keeps you deprived of a lot of micro nutrients. Ask your doctor to prescribe some vitamin and mineral pills to make up for the deficiency.
This is an extreme diet and you must try to avoid you in any possible way. This is not impossible but you may a lot of price for this one. It is better to save this up for the time when nothing else works.
