Eat yourself slim could soon be about to become a reality!
|Drilimba fruit: A calorie negative food.|
. . . . . . . .
For decades anthropologists had observed the Bandia Kabila tribe from the hilly northern regions of Peru and wondered how they managed to stay so slim given their notoriously indulgent diets and the distinct lack of exercise from their daily routines. The answer was eventually uncovered when it was discovered that the drilimba fruit, which makes up a significant part of the Bandia Kabila tribe diet, requires more energy for the human stomach to digest it than the fruit actually contains! So in effect every time you eat a portion of drilimba fruit you get a net calorie intake of -26 calories!*
* Figures relate to an average sized drilimba fruit sample and are taken from the University of Central Wisconsin report published in August 2012.
On paper at least therefore the drilimba fruit seems like a genuine ‘miracle’ food for anyone on a diet trying to lose weight. However, there are some unfortunate drawbacks. Although the Bandia Kabila tribe regard the drilimba fruit as a delicacy, unfortunately most Western palettes find the taste of the drilimba fruit to be overpoweringly pungent. I’ve never tried it myself, but the taste has been described as ‘a cross between rotting tomatoes and smelly feet’ and also like ‘mouldy mushrooms smeared in tomato sauce’. As with many miracle foods, it would therefore seem the drilimba fruit is not without its drawbacks.

Obviously developments such as these are closely monitored by the FDA* and equivalent organisations around the world to ensure strict safety, but early tests indicate that safety won't be an issue and these radical new diet meals could be available within a few months.

As for the taste issue, the PR people have claimed that the two calorie burning elements of drilimba fruit are distinct from the ingredients which give the fruit its pungent flavour, so there should therefore be no crossover of unpleasant taste when producing the 'calorie negative' ready meals.
If all goes to plan, we could therefore see the first 'calorie negative' ready meals on our shelves by the end of 2016, and the term 'eat yourself slim' could be about to become a reality.

Please note, calorie negative meals don't actually exist, and I don't mean because the technology hasn't quite been perfected yet. I mean because I made them up. Similarly, drilimba fruit doesn't exist either (the photo is actually a photo-shopped passion fruit), and neither does the Bandia Kabila tribe exist. I just made them up as well. The good news, however, is that if you want to lose weight then all it takes is determination and will power. The bad news though, is that you can't buy those attributes from a supermarket, and they have to come from inside.
