NOTE: Recently, since foreigners have begun drinking ayahuasca and a tourist industry has formed around ayahuasca ceremonies and treatments with curanderos, a new diet has emerged that most people refer to as the ayahuasca diet.  This diet was designed to keep people safe during the ceremonies.  Ayahuasca can have dangerous effects when mixed with certain substances, namely pharmaceutical medication and most specifically anti-depressant medication or SSRIs.  Other negative effects are possible when mixing ayahuasca with some foods as well, like dairy products, but this diet is different from the dieta described above.  While the ayahuasca diet can be used to demonstrate one’s determination and is a good idea, it should not be confused with the traditional dieta that forms such an integral part of the science of plant medicine in the Amazon Rainforest.
After the dieta has been opened on the spiritual plane, the physical aspects of the dieta begin.  After again declaring the intentions for the dieta, the dieter ingests some form of extraction of the plant, which can be a preparation made from boiling the leaves, the bark, or the roots of the plant, or by soaking them in alcohol, or even by smoking a pipe made from the wood of the plant.  An extraction of tobacco is added to the preparation, as well, or in the case of smoking the pipe, tobacco would be used as the smoking material.  A particular type of tobacco is used in the Amazon traditions, called mapacho, known scientifically as nicotiana rustica.  The addition of tobacco plays an important role, as it creates a direct link to the plant, so that smoking mapacho during the dieta connects the dieter to the plant spirit being dieted.  Therefore, dieters are encouraged to smoke mapacho, with intention, and if possible using a pipe made from the plant being dieted, to enhance the effect of the dieta.

Cuando se acerca abril llega de la mano el bombardeo publicitario de la operación bikini. En esas primeras semanas de la primavera sufrimos la avalancha de anuncios, comentarios y reportajes sobre productos quemagrasa y dietas milagro. Tenga cuidado y no se deje engañar: ponerse en forma estando sano puede ser un ejercicio fácil, pero cuando hablamos de importantes pérdidas de peso, hay que contar con supervisión médica.


El azúcar estimula la producción de insulina y aumenta el apetito por los alimentos calóricos como el chocolate, galletas y dulces. También alienta la acumulación de grasa y hace que el hígado trabaje más duro interrumpiendo el proceso digestivo. Si tienes un golpe de azúcar, no tienes que atascarte en el pastel: opta por carbohidratos de bajo IG en vez, como una rebanada de pan integral, galletas de arroz o galletas de avena.
