Fruit diet weight loss plan
Fruit diet plan has myriad health benefits apart from weight loss. This diet plan can be your key to good health and well-being. Read on to know more...
It is no secret that fruits have immense health benefits. While it is known that your daily diet must consist of at least 1 - 2 servings of fresh fruits, the concept of living only on fruits is relatively new. Fruit diet plan program, also known as fruit flush diet or fruit diet, is extremely low on calories, hence apt for weight loss. Apart from the obvious benefit of weight loss, fruit diet plan also offers detoxification and rejuve
Fruit diet plans can be of various types depending upon the duration and diet menu. An 'all fruit' diet plan usually lasts for about 3 days. During this diet plan, you are supposed to eat only fruits and a small amount of proteins. Proteins are to be consumed on the first day of the diet, to prevent the body from burning muscles. Start your day with protein shake and consume 1 - 2 servings of fruit for lunch. Eat lean protein and fruits for dinner on the first day. For the next two days, you can start eating fresh fruits every two hours of the day. Eat only a small amount of protein on these days.
The fruit diet plan works by burning fat in your body. As this diet is extremely low in calories, your body needs to burn fats for additional energy. Besides, a lot of weight loss comes from water retention in the body. Fruits get rid of accumulated toxins and wastes in the body, which again contributes to weight loss. During a 3 day fruit diet program, you can lose as many as 9 pounds.
Fruit Diet Plan Menu
While it is absolutely alright to gorge on any fruit of your choice, there are certain considerations when it comes to choosing fruits. Firstly, you should always eat fruits that are of finest quality. Dried and canned fruits should be avoided while fresh fruits should be given a preference. Also, choose low sugar fruits such as apples and grapefruits over high sugar fruits such as melons, grapes, etc. Combining different types of fruits is also not recommended. Hence, while having a fruit serving, make sure you only eat fruits of one type only. While mixing oranges and grapefruits is fine, mixing either of these with melons is not.
You may start your day with a high fiber fruit like banana and then eat apples, oranges, melons, berries or cantaloupes at every 2 hour interval. Also, proteins that you choose for dinner must be strictly lean and come from healthy sources such as fresh fish, egg whites, etc. Protein shake must be low in sugar and devoid of any artificial additives. Supplement your diet with lots of fresh fruit juices and water. Increasing fluid intake can speed up the detoxification process.

It's not an argument of weight loss2010-11-01 19:25:19 by wildwestzona
We are not arguing weight loss, we all know that low carb will cause weight loss, that is undeniable. Not sure what your point is.
But then what? what about 5 years, 10 years, 20 years later. It's about adopting a healthy lifestyle that includes low stress, eating a balance nutritional plan, exercise, sleep, water, etc.... You tell someone to do no carb diet and what do you tell them? You tell them that they will lose weight, but will gain it back when they go back to eating regularly. Otherwise, they have to continue to NOT eat fruit, vegies, and whole grains, but then their cholesterol will shoot through the roof and put them at risk for MAJOR health complications 10 years, 20 years down the road
I was doing my diet plan for the day2008-07-29 11:37:02 by --
If I just eat a sensible diet with fruit, veggies, rice, bread, nuts, and lean meat, I can stay within 1500 calories a day.
It's really, really interesting that all these diets preach about the miracle weight loss plan, whereas actually, all you really need to do is to not eat anything that is junk food and control your portions, and you can have a very sensible and filling diet.
Isn't that interesting? All you need to do is not reach for the chips or cookies or chocolate or alcohol, and you're fine.
Huh. Who knew?
Good diet for weight loss.2013-02-04 04:12:27 by spunkyrose1938
The reason you are hungry all the time is because the severe diet you have created for yourself.
When I am in weight losing mode,which is pretty much all the time. I am never hungry. I am pretty active but 74 years old, so I gear my diet to that. I am also diabetic but very healthy
otherwise. For breakfast I have a combination of nuts and dried fruit. I use pecans,
walnuts, almonds, which I toast, prunes, apricots which I cut up, and dried cranberries. I have
1/2 cup of this mixture. The nuts are high in protein, the fruit provides a little seetness, vitamins and minerals

Hi clumsygrace --
I actually have answers to both of your questions!
1. This is a sure fire method for quick weight loss (please, if someone intends to lecture me on health, safety, etc., please refrain and don't read on!...) that being said: go on a liquid diet for 2 days (plan these days so that you can mostly relax and lay low -- don't work out). In place of your 3 meals, drink 16 oz. of fruit/veg juice, i.e. tomato, cucumber melon, veggie, whatever you like (best to home blend it). In between, drink hot glasses of water with lemon, this aids with cleansing your system (and whetting your appetite)
