The fruit diet is designed to detoxify your body and cleanse it by eating only fruit for a short period of time. This type of diet also can help you lose about 5 pounds or more when done properly, and it can help you curb your dependence on caffeine, fat, sugar, and other foods as you detoxify your system. There is little preparation needed, but this diet does require a bit of willpower to follow through to completion. Here are a few secrets to get you started:
Secret #1: Stock Up in Advance
Buy an assortment of fruits and nuts of your choice so that you do not have to run out to the store to replenish your supplies for several days. You will be eating only fruits and nuts for a predetermined period of one to two weeks, so make sure you have enough supplies to last you for at least 4 to 5 days. This way you don’t have to make any emergency trips to the store when you are hungry.
Secret #2: Wait Between Fruits
Once you start eating one piece of fruit, it is fine to eat as many pieces of that kind of fruit as you want until you feel full. However, if you wish to switch to another kind of fruit, wait at least 90 minutes in between to make sure you do not have any adverse reactions to the different digestive processes.
Secret #3: Stay Hydrated
Drink plenty of water throughout the day and evening to ensure that you keep your body hydrated and help flush out toxins.
Secret #4: Limit the Nuts
Though nuts are fine to eat during the fruit diet to give you some additional protein and energy during the day, don’t go overboard. You will not achieve the desired weight loss and cleansing effects if you do.
Use these four secrets to help you be successful in your fruit diet, and lose that extra weight while detoxifying your body.
