Influencer Wanessa Moura is featured in the August issue of the renowned French magazine, Malvie Magazine. With a solid career in the fashion world, Wanessa has tried countless diets in search of maintaining a healthy body. Recently, she drew attention by undergoing the so-called “light diet”, a trend that has gained popularity on social media due to its supposed benefits. However, after a 10-day immersion on this diet, Wanessa shared her experience and expressed disappointment with the results, as well as raising serious concerns about the risks associated with this method.
The light diet, hitherto unknown to some, is linked to well-being and spirituality. The central proposal is to feed exclusively on sunlight and water for a certain period, aiming at purifying the body, mind and soul. Adherents claim that this practice contributes to mental health, energy and vitality. However, problems emerge when we consider the potential short- and long-term negative impacts. The light diet, by restricting intake to just water, can lead to significant nutritional deficiencies, compromising the health of people who adopt it.
How did the idea of submitting to the light diet for 10 days come about?
The idea of submitting to the light diet for 10 days came from my continuous quest to improve my well-being and explore spirituality. I was curious to try something new and challenging that could provide a different perspective on the connection between mind, body and energy.
At the beginning of the experiment, what were your expectations regarding the results of the diet?
At the beginning of the experience, my expectations were quite open. I expected to feel more rejuvenated, gain mental clarity, and maybe even experience a deeper spiritual connection. I was excited to explore the potential benefits the light diet promised.
What were the aspects that most surprised you during these 10 days of immersion in the light diet?
During those 10 days, the most surprising aspect for me was how much I was able to focus on my own inner journey. I was amazed at the sense of calm and focus I began to experience as I disconnected from food distractions. I also noticed a stronger connection to nature and a sense of gratitude for the energy around me.
You mentioned that the light diet is associated with well-being and spirituality. Can you explain a little more about this connection?
The connection between the diet of light, well-being and spirituality lies in the idea that, by freeing ourselves from food-related worries and distractions, we can direct our energy to other dimensions of our existence. Many believe it can facilitate greater spiritual awareness, self-awareness, and even healing.
What were the main results you noticed regarding your body and mind after those 10 days?
The main results I noticed after those 10 days were an increase in my overall energy, mental clarity and a feeling of freshness. Also, I gained a new perspective on my relationship with food and realized how often we use food as a distraction.
You mentioned returning from the experience “much worse” than you expected. Could you share more details about what happened?
Yes, it’s true that I returned from the experience feeling “much worse” than I expected. Unfortunately, the lack of essential nutrients and adequate calories has negatively impacted my health. I felt weak, dizzy, and my concentration dropped dramatically. This made me realize the real risks associated with the light diet.
You raised concerns about the risks and dangers of the light diet. Could you highlight some of these risks that you identified?
Among the risks I identified are malnutrition, loss of muscle mass and a drop in immunity. Furthermore, the light diet can lead to eating disorders and cause lasting damage to the body.
As an influencer with a large following, what is your role in raising awareness of the potential risks of certain practices, such as the light diet?
As an influencer, my role is to raise awareness of the potential risks of practices such as the light diet. While I pursued this experience with positive intentions, I realized that it is important to raise awareness of the dangers involved and to promote more balanced approaches to well-being and spirituality.
What message would you like to convey to people who may be considering trying the light diet or other similar trends?
My message to those considering the light diet or similar trends is that health and well-being should always come first. It is important to approach dietary changes with caution and consult qualified health professionals. Extreme restrictions can do more harm than good.
After this experience, how do you intend to use your influence to raise awareness about the harmful effects of a light diet?
After this experience, I intend to use my influence to warn about the harmful effects of a light diet. I will share my honest journey, highlighting the challenges and risks I encountered. My hope is that we can all seek healthy, balanced ways to take care of ourselves, valuing our physical and mental health above all else. Remember, you are precious and deserve the best possible care!
