I Ate 4 Pieces of Fruit Every Day For 2 Weeks, and No, I Didn't Gain Weight
After reading all about the nutritarian diet outlined in the book Eat to Live by Joel Fuhrman, MD, I embarked on the Six-Week Plan he outlines to get started on the nutritarian lifestyle. He believes in eating a diet that's nutrient dense, and fresh fruits are part of that. In fact, he recommends a minimum of four fruits a day.
Well, if I was going to do this little fruit experiment, now was the perfect time, as summer fruits were in season! I even have a farm stand down the road from me that I can bike to to go blueberry picking and buy fresh peaches. Keep reading to find out how I ate that much fruit, how I felt, what effect it had on my body, and if I'll keep it up.
