Done. That is all 5 Days done.
I've enjoyed eating all that fruit and I physically feel good too. Although for about 1hr today I got REALLY hungry really quick. Don't know why. Nothing a good serving of Mango, 2 x Kiwi Fruits and a Peach couldn't handle :)
Goodbye Christmas/New Year, Hello Healthy 2009
It has been a good way to transition from the Christmas/New Year period and not so good eating habits, and back to focusing on training and eating well. It has been really good for getting excited about my health and training for 2009.
It Gets Easier
This 5 Day Fruit Fast has been much easier than the first time I did it about 6 years ago. I discovered what is referred to as the Paleo way of eating.
Eating Paleo basically supports eating only food that is found in a natural, wild setting. This basically boils down to just Fruit, Salad, all Meats, Nuts and Honey. Anything that requires human processing is avoided. This includes all products with artificial sugar, milk products, grains and flour based processed foods. This is the way I try and eat these days at least 80-90% of the time.
Tomorrow, I look forward to eating chicken and salad which is perhaps my favourite meal.
Conclusion? Highly Recommended!
The 5 Day Fruit Fast is a good and natural way to detox. It can be difficult, but the benefits are large in my opinion. I recommend everyone doing it at least once in their life. Flush your system out. And the earlier, the better.
