This Woman Went on a "Taco Cleanse," Here's What Happened

November 25, 2015 3 min read

When people think of "dieting" they often envision their favourite foods going out the window. Pizza, pasta, ice cream and tacos all come to mind. But one woman wanted to change that. See, after hearing about Charlotte Palermino going on a week-long "pizza cleanse" and actually losing weight, she decided to take a deeper look at how she could do the same, with her food of choice, of course. "If there’s one day of the week I love just as much as Pizza Friday it’s Taco Tuesday because let’s face it, tacos are delicious AF," began Elite Daily's Kaylin Pound. "So, I grabbed my sombrero and set out to fulfill my dream of making every day Taco Tuesday by going on an epic taco cleanse." For six days, Kaylin went on a strict diet of just tacos. She didn't consume coffee, booze, or even chips and guac. All she ate were racks of tacos. "And you know what? I actually lost four pounds in the process. But then again, I guess that shouldn’t be too surprising since a taco in each hand is basically the same thing as a well-balanced diet, right?" She admits, however, that it wasn't as fun as she hoped it would be. Here's the skinny on her week-long experiment:

"Last week, I went on a 'taco cleanse' and ate nothing but tacos for six days straight."

One woman ate tacos for a week and this is what happened.

"I kicked off day one with a tasty trio of tacos from my favorite spot, Cafe El Presidente."

One woman ate tacos for a week and this is what happened.

"On day two, I was feeling pretty good so I headed over to Dos Caminos on Park Ave and demolished a plate of fish tacos."

One woman ate tacos for a week and this is what happened.

"I hit up Cafe El Presidente later in the day for taco round two. My official count was up to eight and I was already getting pretty sick of these things, so I knew this was going to be a long week."

One woman ate tacos for a week and this is what happened.

"On day three, I think all those tacos finally started catching up with me because I felt like sh*t. I had horrible heartburn for most of the day but, nonetheless, I weathered through the acid storm in my throat and upped my taco tally with some chorizo tacos from Sabor A Mexico Taqueria…"

"…plus a plate of carne asada tacos from Salvation Taco."

One woman ate tacos for a week and this is what happened.

"By day four I was really struggling and spent most of the day dreading the thought of eating another taco. But I knew I was in too deep to turn back, so I ate an Adobada taco from Los Tacos No. 1…"

"…and somehow managed to stomach several salmon tacos from Vamos later in the evening."

One woman ate tacos for a week and this is what happened.

"I felt a little bit better on day five, although I was getting really, really sick of Mexican food at this point and probably would have sold my soul for a few sips of coffee. I reluctantly upped my cleanse count with a couple chicken tacos from Chipotle…"

One woman ate tacos for a week and this is what happened.

"…and polished off an insanely delicious tray of shrimp tacos from Ottos Tacos."

One woman ate tacos for a week and this is what happened.

"On day six I thought I might actually be dying from a taco overdose, but it was the last day of my cleanse and I really wanted to finish off strong. Since I felt so terrible, I figured I would try to be “healthy” by opting for a veggie taco from Five Tacos."

One woman ate tacos for a week and this is what happened.

"I continued the taco tour by taking on some chicken tacos from Dos Caminos later in the day."

"I brought the final taco tally up to 28 by crushing a couple victory tacos at Empellón Al Pastor. Although I felt pretty awful, I’m happy to report that my torturous taco diet was somewhat of a success because I did lose 4 pounds in the whole tortilla-filled process."

One woman ate tacos for a week and this is what happened.

"However, I probably wouldn’t recommend this diet to anyone because quite frankly, forcing tacos down my throat every day made me feel like absolute sh*t. Not to mention, eating tacos by themselves is not nearly as much fun as eating tacos with a side of guac and an ice cold margarita."

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
