If you have good health, it can help you feel better and remove away extra weight. Many people tend to reserve a day to eat only fruits as they believe that this is a healthy habit and helps eliminate toxins, and they surely have a valid point. The fruits they eat are rich in water, vitamins, minerals and fiber and also contain carbohydrates; the carbohydrates are rapidly absorbed and they provide some energy to the body, so you have to make your choices with caution.
Process to Follow the Diet of Fruits a Day
You have to eat for one day in a week 4 to 6 servings of fresh fruits and a serving equals one piece, for example, apples, pears, a slice of melon, watermelon, a cup of strawberries, cherries, etc. Choose the ones you like and it is better if the selected fruits are in season.
It only takes a day because it is low in calories and energy, so you could put your health at risk and create serious nutritional problems if the diet is prolonged.
Fruit Diet for One Week
- There is also the alternative of a cleansing diet from week to week on the basis of protein and fruits. This is a very strict, low-calorie weight destroyer and risky plan and should not be followed if you are not in good health .
- It is not recommended for pregnant women, people with eating disorders and in times of stress.
- You must lead active life and make this diet in the summer for better results; in case you feel weak or dizzy, discontinue it on immediate basis.
