I have lost 6K (12 pounds) in 2 weeks. But I think when you are 31k (70 lbs) overweight I think you lose faster in the beginning. This has been easy and fun and I've had no cravings. How I fall asleep and wake up now are drastically different. It used to take me hours of laying still, listening to iPod and playing gameboy before I could calm enough to fall asleep. Now I had so much head chatter that I slept with the iPod going all night every night for many years. And had used the gameboy to calm myself (playing solitaire) for a couple of years. So for me to have no head chatter (that came with the fruit) and be able to just lay down and fall asleep is a miracle! I’m happy to report after just a few days of fruit I could go to sleep on my own. And I fall asleep quickly. That alone is worth the fruity way of life ! Another thing that amazes me is that I wake up awake ! It used to take me a while to wake up. Often it took Caffeine to wake me up. But now I wake up wide awake. That feels so odd LOL. I don’t toss and turn like I used to either. I sleep deep and solid. I love that very much ! So this morning when I woke the joint pains of detoxing were gone so I’m hoping my little mini healing crisis is passed. Oh I keep meaning to mention that the last few days my sinuses have drained like crazy (part of detoxing). But I can breathe through my nose better than I have in many years. I have had sinus issues all my life. And was diagnosed with Asthma in my early 30s. It turned out to be more seasonal. I’m curious to see how fruit will effect that. Of course I have the normal stuff of losing weight like clothes fitting looser and moving around easier. But I have yo-yo’d up and down the scales many times and never experienced strength coming back like I have with fruit. I haven’t had any struggles with hunger. And I want to add here a little about the INSANITY of my previous endeavors  to lose weight. I tried all the fad stuff of course. But one thing that really nagged at me was that I wanted to learn to eat when hungry and stop when full. I could not get my body to do that no matter how hard I tried. Now I spent over a decade trying to learn to do this and I kept wondering what the heck was wrong with me that I could not “get it”. Well, once i was on the fruit amazingly all of a sudden I knew when I was hungry and full. I marveled at that until I read last week that our packaged foods are laced with chemicals that STOP the signal from the stomach to the brain that tells it we are full. So all the time I was thinking I must be mentally deficient since I could not get the hunger/full thing it turned out I was being drugged and didn’t know it ! I’ve noticed when I have a high activity day, the next day I eat more. If I have a low activity day, I get full very fast and just have no desire to eat. I love that the human body naturally knows how much to eat. So as I was saying about hunger… I don’t struggle at all with hunger. I eat all I want. And it boggles my mind that I actually know now when I’m truly hungry. I no longer have that “head hunger” that I was told existed. Hell, that wasn’t head hunger ! That was those addictive chemicals they put in our foods wearing off and the addiction setting in and wanting more ! I have not once had head hunger on fruit. What a wonderful and EASY way of life !!!

For sure, the calorie calculations of the S.A.D. for body fat reduction are definitively not applicable to HCRV.  People are baffled by the fact of how much carbs I eat ... makes no sense to them, but yet, I am getting leaner everyday. The 3700 kcal reduction for one pound of fat burning is just pure setup for failure! Eat more, live more!

I have lost almost 4 kg in 3 weeks i dont count calories or restrict them. I eat when im hungry and that works.
Comment by Tams on May 19, 2011 at 10:30pm

I feel frustrated.  Due to my stupidity, I have broken 811 several times in the past few weeks.  Last night was the worst.  I had initially began losing weight, but since I broke 811, I've gained 15 pounds (in 3 weeks?)...Whaaaaat?  Has this happened to anyone else, and how long did it take the weight to come off again after going back on 811?
