This is my first mono and I wanted to do something high in protein but low in fat, so I decided on shrimp. I haven't heard of anyone doing shrimp before so I wanted to try it out! Each can has 106 g which ranges from 100 to 120 calories per can depending on the brand with 26 g protein, 0 g carbs, and at most 2 g fat.

Usually I drink tea but I will be drinking just water during my mono. I'm in university and there's a chance I may end up drinking on this which could alter the results, but I will post if I do. I will also include if I am working out that day. 

Hopefully I will report back with good news!

I have great news!

Woke up 1.4 lbs lighter!!

I ate two cans of shrimp and was so unbelievably thirsty the whole day. Seriously drank an insane amount of water. I felt kinda bloated from all of the water but that was gone when I woke up.

Also, I ran for 25 mins and briefly did some abs and light lifting. 

From what I've read about monos, it sounds like I should have consumed more calories than I did. However I usually don't consume many calories at all and found that I was not losing any weight, but the shrimp mono has given me results! 

When I woke up I felt really tired but that was most likely because I had not slept enough. Just had another can of shrimp and I'm feeling fine. 

I think I'm going to try and stick with it today as well but it's really difficult because I can't bring the shrimp to dinner and my friends think it's kinda weird. Also looks like I will be drinking tonight which will probably alter my results. 

What do you guys think, should I stick with it anyway or just go for a salad for dinner at the dining hall?

Ended up having some corn, tomatoes, quinoa, and eggplant for dinner. Really upset with myself and I don't really feel well. Sorry to disappoint guys, but hopefully based off of a day's results you will be inspired to try the shrimp mono as well! I want to do an almond one soon.

They don't sell that brand where I live but yeah, it was about $4 a can which can add up.

Actually ended up losing more weight even though I ate a decent sized dinner. Good luck to anyone who tries this!

Up to you! I feel like 3 days is a good amount of time, but it's all personal preference. If you end up doing it I'd love to hear your results on here!
