  1. in simple words. YES
    Gelatin may help with weight loss. It is low in calories and has been shown to help reduce appetite and increase feelings of fullness

    How does the Jello diet work?

  2. This diet is basically a modified fast. Instead of drinking water you are eating it along with chemicals and some gelatin. The bulk that the gelatin provides makes you feel full for a while. The small amount of calories provided , 35 – 70 per serving may be just enough to remove the health benefits of actually fasting. This diet shares the same shortcomings as all non maintenance short term diets. It does not teach you how to eat and maintain a healthy lifestyle to lose weight. Almost all weight lost from these” diets with names” is gained back within 1 year. Try eating 3 meals of mostly whole foods that contain about 400 cal each and are roughly equal caloric parts of protein, carbs from vegetables, and fat. Add 2 snacks of around 200 cal with the same macronutrient makeup for a total of 5 meals. Consume all 5 meals in an 8 hour period and fast for the other 16 hours. (Eating between noon and 8 PM makes sense). This amounts to 1600 balanced calories along with all the benefits of fasting and can be done for life not just weight loss by adding some more calories to each meal. I’m not dieting but for example at noon today I had 1 slice of homemade pizza (260 cal) and a whey protein and almond milk shake (100- 140 ca) . There’s 400 cal and I had good pizza, consumed 40 grams of protein, and feel full.

  3. There was a tiny tiny piece of research that said “Hey! Gelatin is a good albeit incomplete protein that is well absorbed! And, it bulks in the stomach, causing feelings of fullness!” and people suddenly went “DIET FOOD woo hoo!”
    Like any diet (sorry folks, you can only lose weight when calories in are less than calories out, no magic pills) it is (very) low calories with a lot of bulk.
    Yet studies done into the bioavailability of gelatin versus other proteins showed no difference at all- people who had a higher percentage of their dietary protein provided by gelatin did no better with weight loss than others. Its not magic.
    It is a tasty, potentially lo-cal food which does make you feel full.
    But, it is an incomplete protein and it does not provide all the body needs.
    SO how does it work? By reducing choices, but research says short term gains wont last. A balanced low cal diet high in fibre and with enough water is more effective.
    Sorry Jello.

  4. Load of rubbish. The only reason you will lose fat on it is because you are consuming less calories- therefore in a calorie deficit, which is how you lose fat.
    If you fed someone just cardboard everyday then they would lose fat. Doesn’t mean the cardboard diet is the best thing for fat loss.
    The jello diet is another fad.

  5. The Jello diet is a fad diet that becomes popular every few years. It supposedly works by “burning off” the Jello as you eat it, leading to weight loss. However, this is not possible because Jello contains almost no calories. The diet likely does help with weight loss because it cuts down on overall calorie intake, but it is not a healthy way to lose weight and it is not sustainable in the long term.
    A more sensible way to lose weight and keep it off is to focus on eating healthy foods and exercising regularly. This will help you burn off excess calories without deprivation or extreme measures.

  6. The Jello Diet is nothing but a mono diet (or confinement diet).
    It basically means that you are consuming only one food at a time.
    This can be any food item that you like.
    You are allowed to drink water and other beverages as needed, but absolutely no other foods.

  7. Jello Diet? The Jello diet calls for eating nothing but the sugar-free Jello all day long for at least a week and in some cases for as long as two weeks. Depending on the flavor and the kind of Jello you choose, you get as low as 35 calories to 70 calories per serving.
    It works by essentially robing your body of most calories, salt and if you use sugar free, sugar, making you drop weight very quickly.
    I am in no way condoning this diet, just answering your question. The only healthy way to lose weight is to cut most of your normal intake of sugar, simple carbs and salts from the diet and eat more fresh fruits (limited a bit), veggies and meats. From what I have herd and read a good target is about 2 lbs a week. 3 if you are around 300 lbs. 1% of body weight
