Fruits and vegetables only diet plan

Only Fruit and Vegetable Diet {my experience}

Things I ate:fresh,local fruits and vegetables (raw and cooked)

salt,spices,oil,and honey

water,green tea

Let me reiterate,I did it just out of curiosity and not for weight loss,boost my metabolism,cure acne,or whatever health claims they associate fad diets with. For breakfast-I tried different blends of fresh fruits and vegetables commonly known as juicing.

Besides juicing,I enjoyed citrus salad as a part of my breakfast and felt pretty creative!

I did not get the feeling of full,so instead of three meals,I grazed on small snacks throughout the day.

Instead of regular ketchup or ranch dressing,I quickly whipped up home made salsa : boiled tomatoes until soft then blended with chopped cilantro,garlic,some salt and blended all together,then finished it off with squeezed fresh lemon.

Guacamole,even without tortilla chips was my absolute fav snack. Not gonna lie,I wished I had tortilla chips at that time though and maybe a piece of good dark chocolate.My biggest craving was chocolate and maybe little bit of carbohydrate!Especially,when I ate dinner on Day 1 at this vegetarian restaurant called Cosmic Cafe!. It was hard to keep pita bread away and just eat eggplant stir fry & portabella mushrooms. Thank god for their vegan tomato soup,that was delicious! Another struggle was,it felt like I had nothing but food on my mind,or I was planning my next snack. I was in the kitchen all day just preparing food,cleaning and constantly planning which was just too much to handle and that is why I decided to end on Day 2 before I developed strong dislike for fruits,vegetables,and cooking altogether. Also,I was less energetic than usual. Damn those carbs!

I could have simply chopped up greens with few other veggies for a salad or made simple soups to avoid all the hassle but I wanted to enjoy the whole experience,get creative and make delicious food with all the fresh fruits and veggies.

I am pretty sure there are many people out there doing detox diets,juicing,cleanse and what not for several days but I realized that its just not for me,not for more than a day or two. It's very time consuming and nutritionally not adequate at all. Plus,I felt better when I ate a wholesome meal. I ended Day 2 dinner with a delicious,easy baked eggplant dish,recipe adapted from Chinmayie @ Love,Food,Eat minus the yogurt in the marinade and Aloo Palak {Potato Spinach Curry}.Overall,it was a fun little challenge where I felt pretty bold & creative with only fruits and vegetables. Although I have started enjoying juicing fresh fruits and vegetables in the morning for a refreshing start. There are lots of mixed reviews on juicing if it is really beneficial or not. One of the major concern I see with juicing fruits and vegetables is that it removes "fiber" which is very essential for our digestive health. But on the other hand,I came across some articles which stated that juicing fruits and vegetables will allow the micro nutrients to be absorbed better in our body. Its still a pretty debatable topic but this post from a dietitian Nour,explains very well about juicing vs. blending. My bottom line-
grapefruit & orange slices with freshly chopped mint,sprinkled with salt & pepper
cherries & blueberries
oven roasted sweet potato fries with home made salsa

And what their nutritionist had to say

About the plan:
below is the "nurtitionist's take" on the jenny craig diet from the article:
The Nutritionist's Take
"About one third of the calories in this diet come from foods you supply (nonfat dairy, fruits, and vegetables), says Monica Reinagel, chief nutritionist for our sister site NutritionData.com, who analyzed all of the meal plans for us. "The foods you provide are definitely the healthiest part of this diet plan.
"The overall plan is very low in fat (about 15 percent of calories—which is too low, in my opinion) and way too high in refined sugar
