The taco cleanse is a real diet where you only eat tacos and we're so here for it

Putting yourself on a diet for your new years resolution? Or just ate way too much over the holiday season? Well, we've just found the perfect diet for you... and it doesn't involve starving yourself. In fact it lets you eat delish food all day every day...

It's called The Taco Cleanse and it's a real thing - you literally go on a diet where you eat tacos for every meal. How good?!

We have the self-proclaimed "taco scientists" and authors of the book The Taco Cleanse to thank for this blessing on earth. Creators Wes Allison, Stephanie Bogdanich, Molly R. Frisinger and Jessica Morris developed the book after eating tacos for breakfast, lunch and dinner for 30 days straight—and are encouraging others to do the same. We can defs get on board with this.

The book provides all the necessities for following a taco-based lifestyle including five recipes for tortillas (there's even a waffle version *drool*), over 35 vegan recipes for fillings (like beer-battered portobellos, mac and cheese and tater tots) and all the goods to compliment them ie. margaritas! Check out all the details here. 

The cleanse doesn't actually promise weight loss, but it DOES offer plenty of other benefits:

"A taco consumed within three hours of waking, colloquially called a 'breakfast taco', has been anecdotally proven to erase the ill effects of the previous night's toxic indulgence. A midday taco frequently results in more positive physical effects. The spicy taco consumed prior to sleep stimulates the nocturnal imagination and has been used by taco spiritualists to induce prophetic dreams," reads the book. 

This is our kind of diet to a t. Get amongst a good ol' Mexican vibe in the new year, and pretend it's for your own good. Thanks taco scientists, you da best.
