The best part is that by detoxing your body you open up the gate and increase your chances to lose weight. Your metabolism becomes more fast and a fast metabolism burns more calories daily.
A tip: while on the vegetable and fruit diet avoid chewing gum. The low number of calories you intake daily form the fruits and vegetables combined with the lack of proteins in your food will make you feel weakened. So please don’t chew gum while on the fruit and vegetable diet.
Also don’t plan intense physical activities while you are on the fruit and vegetable diet. You should also avoid intense mental tasks. Going on this diet while on vacation or during the weekend is a good choice.
Drink lots of water and stop drinking coffee if you can. You can drink green tea instead of coffee. It’ is much more healthy because green tea has many health benefits.
When you go off the fruit and vegetable diet start eating solid fatty foods slowly. Start with light foods and work your way up. Start with a yogurt, cheese and toast. That way your stomach gets a chance to get reacquainted with harder to digest food.
