Pineapple contains bromelin, a digestive enzyme that can digest 1,000 times its weight in protein in a matter of minutes.
Some slimming diets are centered solely around pinepple, based on the principle that if pineapple has no other travelling companion in the digestive system, it will attack our reserves, destroying excess fat.
This diet is fine in theory, but unfortunately our bodies aren't conditioned for such a drastic change. Though effective for fat, pineapple can upset and irritate our systems. So we suggest two methods:
- a two-day treatment - no longer. Replace your 3 daily meals with fresh pineapple: 1 kg (2 lb.) each day, divided among the 3 meals.
- if you wish to repeat the treatment, wait 2 weeks.
Is a heavy, rich and fattening meal on the menu? Reduce its harmful effects with pineapple:
- fresh pineapple juice before beginning
- or pineapple sorbet in the middle of the meal
- or pineapple slices on your dessert plate
It's simple, but effective and enjoyable.

Paul Neinast, owner of a posh Dallas beauty institute, says that rubbing a piece of pineapple on the skin neutralizes fatty acids while removing any greasy film from the skin.
