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
How I Felt Eating 4 Pieces of Fruit a Day
I was shocked but I instantly felt amazing‚ even after that first day! Since I was snacking on fruit instead of protein bars, and spooning into frozen berry nice cream after dinner instead of vegan ice cream or chocolate, I felt physically lighter and more energetic, and my skin looked clearer and brighter. I also felt joyful because I had lived so long thinking I had to limit my fruit intake, and here I was enjoying every fruit imaginable.
I did find that certain fruits would make me feel a little more bloated than others, especially if I ate too much, like two bananas or too much watermelon. Pears also bothered my stomach, so I avoided those.
One thing that surprised me about eating this much fruit each day was that after the first week, my cravings for real sugar diminished. Even if I ate some dried fruit (two tablespoons max per day were permitted on the Six-Week Plan) like raisins, dates, or my fave dried baby bananas from Trader Joe's, they tasted too sweet and I didn't want them! And all the fresh fruit I was eating — kiwis, raspberries, oranges, and my absolute favorite, mango — they also tasted so fresh, vibrant, and satisfying, like my tastebuds were experiencing them for the first time.
And in case you wanted to know, my bathroom situation was also great. Let's just say constipation was not an issue, and we'll leave it at that!
