All About Mayo Diet – Survey Report




When a topic about a diet program is brought up it rarely talks about nothing but either weight loss or healthy living. One of the most well-known diet programs is the mayo diet. The mayo diet requires the doers to follow certain strict menu on every single day for 13-14 days straight. The promise it offers at the end of the program is quite a prize, which is a weight loss of up to 7-8 kilograms. For people who dream of losing some of their body weight in such a quick period of time the mayo diet must seem highly interesting. In this survey we wanted to focus on the mayo diet and a little bit about diet catering service.


Out of 713 respondents, we found that only 19.92% admitted to have done a mayo diet, at least once. That is still quite a number to consider.


The mayo diet should last 13-14 days without a skip. The menu is set all for breakfast, lunch and dinner. To be strict to the menu is what makes this kind of diet feel tough. We found out that 41.55% of our responding mayo diet doers admitted that they could only remain on the diet program under six days. 39.44% admitted they remained on the diet program for over six days although not completing the 14 days rule. At last 16.9% admitted to have completed the diet for 14 days straight without a skip. That shows how the program could be quite a challenge despite the relatively short period of time for such a promising grand prize at the end as mentioned earlier.


Now we shall see how the diet itself gives effects to its doers. 31.69% of votes go to the improvement on the body fitness. That suggests that the doers generally feel better or healthier after the program. 26.76% of voted go to body weight loss. That is not surprising because the diet itself promises a significant loss of weight if done with required discipline. 20.42% of votes go to insignificant change or difference. This case of insignificant change may be due to a failure of doing the diet by the doers. Last but not least, 19.72% of votes go to tendency of feeling physically weak. This may have something to do with the doer’s physical condition prior to the diet program which causes a complexity.


For those who have experienced a weight loss after the program, 44.74% of the responding mayo diet doers said they had lost 3-4 kilograms. 26.32% admittedly lost 1-2 kilograms. 18.42% admittedly lost 5-6 kilograms. And lastly, 7.89% admittedly lost more than 8 kilograms.


Earlier in the article we mentioned how the mayo diet program could be very challenging especially to follow the strict menu on every single day for 14 days full. Now we are going to spill the specific moments in a day that are the toughest to undergo. 21.83% said dinners are the toughest moment in a day. That is the majority of the votes. 19.72% said both lunches and dinners to be the toughest moments. 16.9% said both breakfasts and dinners. 15.49% said only lunches to be the toughest moment. 11.27% said both breakfasts and lunches. 9.86% said all moments from breakfast to dinner. Lastly, only 4.93% said only breakfasts to be the toughest moment in a day during the program. Conclusively, dinners seem to be the toughest of all moments in a day when someone does the mayo diet.


As much as the mayo diet seems very promising in its result, only 37.32% of our responding mayo diet doers do it regularly as a routine.


We then found out that 50.94% of the respondents do it once a month. That is very regular for such a tough diet program since the diet lasts 13-14 days. 18.87% said they do it every two months. 15.09% do it every three months. 5.66% do it every four months. Another 5.66% do it every six months. And, only 1.89% does it every five months.


88.03% of our responding mayo diet doers admitted that they prepare the menu on their own. The opposite data shows 11.97% of the rest of the respondents prefer to hire a diet catering service.


We then asked why hire such a service. 47.06% of the respondents said that they do not have the time for the preparation. 29.41% said that it is comfortable to have the food ready-to-eat delivered to them personally either at work or at the house. Then 23.53% admitted that they have only slight knowledge on what menu to prepare.


Then for the respondents who prepare everything on their own without the help from a catering service, 61.6% of them admitted to search for the menu options on the Internet. 20.8% admittedly asked for recommendation from a friend who is familiar with the diet menu. 12.8% said they followed their instinct –which may be the cause of insignificant change or result at the end of the program. Lastly, 4.8% said they asked for advice from a diet expert.


If you know the menu to be taken or consumed during a course of mayo diet, it may seem quite costly. We asked our responding mayo diet doers about that and 52.82% agreed that the diet is costly. 47.18% thought the opposite.


64.71% of our responding mayo diet doers who hire a catering service thought that they do not mind the service fee because it is still acceptable, meaning the service is not overly expensive. Only 35.29% thought the service is expensive. Again it can go down to how much is earned from every respondent’s job every month.


After the diet program, how is our responding mayo diet doers’ lifestyle affected? We assumed they would change their lifestyle of living or consuming food. We shall see. 56.34% admitted that they reduce the consumption of fried or oily food products. 54.23% also admitted that they increase to consume more fruit and vegetable. 42.96% also admitted that they reduce the consumption of salt and salty food in general. However, we also found some negative turn. 11.97% admitted that they went back to consuming fried and oily food products. Also, 9.15% admitted they went back to consuming salt and salty food just like before the program.


Apart from the mayo diet, 20.67% of the respondents claimed to also do the obsessive Corbuzier diet or more known as OCD. Other minor claims also go to carbohydrate diet (16.23%) and fasting (9.83%).


Lastly to end this article, we wanted to know why some of the respondents no longer do any type of diet. The number one reason goes to being lazy (40.85%). Following that, 18.31% said that they had an experience from getting a negative side effect the body. Another 18.31% said that they did not experience any positive effect to the body therefore they stopped.
