What Happens When You Eat 4 Pieces of Fruit Every Day?
I Ate 4 Pieces of Fruit Every Day For 2 Weeks, and No, I Didn't Gain Weight
Did Eating 4 Pieces of Fruit Make Me Gain Weight?
Nope! After steadily gaining weight since staying home in March, after two weeks, I had dropped almost five pounds. Since I'm only 5'2", it was definitely noticeable to me, especially in my face, arms, and belly, and not just from eating tons of fruit, but because I also wasn't eating sugar, oil, processed food, or flour.
To be clear, I didn't start this nutritarian lifestyle because I wanted to lose weight. I was drawn to this nutrient-dense diet to prevent disease, give me energy, and to help curb sugar cravings and my tendency to binge. I wanted to feel better and have definitely noticed so many benefits, and it's only been two weeks! Feeling less bloated, leaner, and more comfortable in my clothes, and feeling lighter on my runs is definitely a plus, but it wasn't the sole reason I started eating this way. Being as healthy as possible so I can enjoy my family and my life is what's important to me.
