What is the BRAT diet?

Bananasriceapples, and toast are the only foods allowed in the BRAT diet. But how does this food regime work, and what is it for?

When it comes to diets and diets, you never end up learning.

The BRAT diet, for example, has very ancient origins and has its roots in the countries of South America.

Immediately labeled as miraculous, the BRAT diet is not a diet that slimmers but aid in fighting intestinal diseases.

Let’s see how it works and what the foods are. Please note that this article is for informational purposes only, and it is always appropriate to consult your nutritionist.

BRAT diet: how does it work?

The BRAT diet is a helpful diet to combat morning nausea and gastrointestinal disorders.

The name is the acronym for permitted foods:

  • Bananas
  • Rice
  • Apple
  • Toast.

Distributed throughout the day, these four easy-to-digest and satiating foods reduce the symptoms of these disorders.

But when you think about it, it’s nothing different than what our grandmothers did.

Rice with oil after having had bouts of diarrhea, grated apple, and then, when it was beginning to get better, a little bread or crackers and the banana.

Of course, the BRAT diet can be followed for up to three or four days to avoid nutritional imbalance.

BRAT Diet: approved food

As mentioned, the only foods allowed by this diet are bananas, rice, apples, and toasted bread.

  • Bananas are rich in fiber and mineral salts and have high satiating power, and are easily digestible.
  • Rice, also easily digestible, is rich in starch and has an astringent function.
  • The apple, rich in vitamins and water, has minimal calories, and rice has astringent properties.
  • White bread, which should be preferred at least in this case to whole-grain bread, allows easily digestible carbohydrates to be consumed.
  • Water, even in the form of you and low-sugar herbal teas, essential to dilute the gastric juices and maintain an adequate hydration level.

Weekly plan

As mentioned, this type of diet can be followed for short periods. The following scheme is recommended to complete the three to four-day menu needed to rebalance the functioning of the intestine:

Breakfast: A banana with a slice of clothed bread smeared with a honey veil.

Lunch: Rice boiled with oil and aromatic herbs.

Snack: An apple or a slice of toasted bread.

Dinner: Boiled rice with oil and a bit of grated cheese.


As mentioned, this food regime can be followed for limited time intervals. The total lack of protein makes it far too unbalanced to be followed for a long time.

Also, it is good to consult your nutritionist.
