Fruits and Veggies diet
I would be concerned about getting enough protein...and fat is important to the diet in order to absorb some vitamins, like vitamin E. I guess it would be important to keep those things in mind.
plankcm, you like many millions of people, and like me up until a few weeks ago, mistakenly underestimate the nutrition in vegetables and fruits. All plant foods are a mixture of carbs, protein, and fats. Bananas are about 3.5% protein, about the same as mother's milk. Fruits and starchy vegetables are predominantly carb, but also have protein and fats. Green vegetables are about half protein, a quarter carb, and a quarter fat. legumes are about half carb, a quarter protein, and a quarter fat. Soybeans have the omega 3 fat. so do walnuts and flaxseed.
I do believe, however, that grains and legumes should also be consumed, along with fruits and vegetables. I am currently on a 90/10 program -- At least 90% from plant products and 10% or less from animal products.
BAD IDEA. Well, just from experience. I got REALLY sick and couldnt stomach fats. I'd basically eat fruit (and not cal dense stuff, apples and grapes, instead of super nutritional bananas and mangos) veggies (mainly lettuce, tomato, cucumber) and bread, with a bit of milk, sometimes a tiny bit of potato or a few bits of meat. I lost 15kg. Unfortunatly I lost muscle and am in a huge amount of pain, I lost my nice shaped rear, lost fitness, skin became very dry, hair thin and limp, sleeping patterns stuffed up. I did this cos I eat in at uni and had no choice when I became itnolerant to fat. Now I cant gain enough weight to make sitting on stools comfy. I got even sicker, and my hair started to fall out. Lucky I got it sorted. But please dont put yourself thorugh this. Go ahead and increase your veggies and fruit, have it at every meal, make sure 1/2 your plate is veggies or salad, 1/4 is meat, 1/4 carbs, but you can't only eat fruit for hte rest of your life, so it cant be permanant. Everyone is different tho, so maybe it worked for her. it didnt work for me. I have horrible stoamch pains when I eat or run
I'm glad you coudl see that its not entriely healthy. maybe for a week or so, or like a detox after a bad week, but not to lose. You also need fats, good ones mind you.
Good luck. I'm sure you'll do the right thing.
you didnt have enought protein, thats why you lost what you did

A single serving of protein is only 3 ounces, which isn't a lot of meat. make sure you're watching your serving sizes, and number of servings as well. and make sure you get enough fruits, veggies and whole grains. i heard too much protein in your diet can cause kidney stones? don't quote me on that.
