Default Fruit

Hi

I have been on a diet for about 2 weeks now, which basically consists of one
meal per day, and lots of fruit. I have two questions if some of you don't
mind answering :-

1 - Can you eat too much fruit per day? ( I usually only eat apples,
oranges, tangerines and banana's )

2 - Does it matter if you take lots of fruit at the one time? For example, I
can come in from work at 2:30 in the afternoon, have a small diner, and
later on ( about 7pm ) I would take 2 oranges, 2 apples a banana and a
tangerine. Is that too much at the one time or am I better spacing the fruit
out, or does it not matter with fruit?

Thanks for all your help.

I would never tell anyone that their diet is "wrong" if it works for them
(and doesn't kill them along the way).

It is my personal belief, however, that one meal a day is not healthy. And
fruit, while loaded with nutriments and fiber, and generally low in
calories, is unfortunately also rather high in sugar. And with one meal a
day, you're taking your blood sugar levels on a roller-coaster ride. Some
consider that important, others may not. I'm not the authority on that.

I would be sure to take multivitamin supplements if I were going to continue
that diet, at least.

Yes, surely you can eat too much fruit.


Why is that? I thought fruit was good for you?

If you really overdo fruits like apples, you can become quite
flatulent!

What is your reason to go on a specific diet like yours?

i


I am really overweight, and I think this is the best way to do it. I have
cut down my eating by 1/3, approx.

Too much of anything is not good for you. You need calories but too many
are bad for you.

You need exercise to be healthy. You are probably starving yourself on only
one meal a day and making up the calories with only fruit is also unhealthy
because it almost guarantees that you will miss out on some nutrients.

Eat a wide variety of food, with limitations on fat and refined sugar which
provide little nutrition. Control how many portions you eat and the size of
portions. And exercise up to 30 minutes a day.

Along with what others have said, I'd note that your diet may be
inadequate in protein and fat. You need a balance of protein, fat,
and carbs in your diet, and fruit is essentially just carbs.

Has anyone referred you to www.fitday.com? This site will let you
track your eating and see how many calories and other nutrients you're
consuming. You also need to look at your calorie intake (as others
have noted) and see that it's in a range that will allow a steady but
safe weight loss (generally 1-2 lbs. per week).
