I am sick of eating tuna. I think I need a break, don’t you?
No, I’m kidding. I am not sick of eating tuna and brown bread, not yet anyway. It’s tasty, it’s easy and it’s quick. But I am going to be taking a break from it. In fact, I will be taking a break from all that I have been eating lately and for the next 3 days, I will do what is called a fruit detox diet.
Actually, like fasting, there are different “versions” or “styles” of the fruit detox diet. Some add in protein, others allow juice, others have specific meal times and portions, etc. I’m doing my own version of it that I found to work really well for me.
The theory: A fruit detox diet (my version) involves drinking loads of water and eating only fruits (or/and vegetables) for 3 consecutive days. Any combination of fruit any number of times will do. This is an amazing technique to both lose weight and detoxify your body. For the foreseeable future, I will do this every 2 weeks.
So food wise, today I had:
Meal 1: 1 mango, 1 apple, 8 grapes, 1 plum
Meal 2: 1 orange, 1 carrot, 1 apple, 1 plum, 1 banana
Rest day! For now, until I get my fitness back, I will take a rest day every 4 days instead of the usual structure of working out Monday-Saturday and taking Sunday off.
