Mayo Clinic Diet The Mayo Clinic Diet will walk you through two phases, intended to jumpstart weight loss then set up a new healthy lifestyle for long-term success. In the "Lose It" phase, which lasts only two weeks, you'll work out for 30 minutes daily, cut all sugar besides fruit, and stop eating in front of the TV. You'll eat lots of healthy fats and whole grains and start your day with a healthy breakfast. "Bonus habits" include cutting out processed food. The goal is to lose 6 to 10 pounds in this diet phase. After two weeks, the "Live It" phase is more lax on the rules, and gives you a calorie count to follow to either lose more weight or maintain what you lost during phase one. This popular diet ranks higher than some others on the "challenging" scale: You'll have difficulty eating out and largely won't be encouraged to drink alcohol. But while you're reaching for the carrot sticks for the tenth time in a day, take a small comfort in the fact that the Mayo Clinic medical center is highly qualified to develop a healthy diet that works.
