I just started the all fruit diet on Tuesday, so it has been only 5 days. I am already down 7 pounds, while pigging out. Plus I feel fantastic, and it seems to be doing great things, for my skin as well.

Yael - I am finally losing weight.  IT has taken months of transitioning.  I "needed" the cooked food for a while during this.  Now, when I do cooked, it is only a steamed vegetable.  But, getting here, for some reason, took a long time.  Maybe age, hormones, habits, damage.... (I am 47) I don't know.  But, I am finally almost 100% and feeling so much better and my body is releasing.  There is great wisdom here on this site and I have found it very helpful.  (Lekoma has been amazing - he is quite balanced and insightful!!  There have been others too)  What has struck me is that some get this from one day to the next and transition seemingly over night.  It didn't happen for me that way.  So, just hold on... there are so many ways of doing this.  I know the weight thing is very painful.  Try to eat as much sweet juicy fruit as you can.  Bring it with you everywhere so you are NEVER caught without food.  If you are craving, it means you are hungry.  Dieting has stifled that impulse.  So, it confused me in the beginning.  Now, I do what I am supposed to - I eat!

I don't exercise and I'm losing.

Yael, you'll lose that water and fruit weight going to the bathroom. :D

Comment by Mara Cordova on May 2, 2012 at 7:28am

Yael, no fear! You are working out every time you get up, and do what you gotta. Everything you do burns calories. Even SLEEPING burns calories. You need to drink more water, yes, and eat more fruit! I know it sounds counter to eat more to lose more- but think, the less fat you put in, the more of your fat you use. It just takes time. But every time you walk to the kitchen to get a banana, you're losing weight. :D

Comment by Yael Feit on May 2, 2012 at 7:24am

Mara-- so what you are saying is that I won't loose it until I start working out a lot and burn off everything that I ate??  Oh no! Nothing will work unless I work out? I need to drink more, yah??

Thanks so much for answering...

Yael- how much did you gain? Are you accounting the physical weight of what you're eating when you weigh yourself? You're not doing anything wrong, you need patience. If you eat 2000 calories of bananas a day, you're going to weigh  7.5 pounds (6oz per banana, 20 bananas= 120oz) heavier on that day, if you drink 64 oz of water a day (as is recommended) you're going to weigh 4 pounds heavier on that day. 11.5 pounds that is not YOU, every day.

That 11.5 pounds will give you the energy you need to work away your fat, the weight that IS you, without adding more fat to the weight that is you. 3oz of ground beef is 250 calories, with 150 calories of fat. If you had your 2000 calories in beef, that's 24oz (1.5 pounds of beef- which is LIGHTER than 11.5 pounds of fruit.) with 1200 calories of FAT, that will be you.

You are not doing anything wrong. You are doing something right!
