It’s been a couple years since I’ve done the three day fruit/veggie only fast/cleanse. I’ve been wanting to lose some weight and this is one way I did it in the past plus it cleans you out. So three days of fruits and veggies only. No soy, no dairy, no meat, no nuts, beans, popcorn, beer, etc. The first day was pretty easy. A big bowl of fruit for breakfast, a salad for lunch and a few bananas throughout the day to keep me full. The above photo was dinner and it was great. Onions, potatoes, zuchini, tomatoes, parsley and I enjoyed it. It could have used some hot sauce, but that’s against the rules.
Day 2 was not as easy. It was a saturday and I went out skating all day in almost 100 degree weather. Breakfast was fruit again and I was already hungry before leaving for skating. I brought some baked potatoes and sweet potatoes in olive oil, cherries and one avocado. Lets just say I was starving beyond believe when I got home to make the above dinner. Kale and potatoes. That wasn’t enough it turns out as I would toss and turn all night because I was so hungry. Ugh.
Day three. Breakfast was fruit again and I was getting kind of over it. I wanted milk, yogurt, eggs, something with more fat. Being hungry and it being nearly 100 again made me so lazy.
Lunch on day three. It was decent. Kale, Zuchini, Sweet Potatoes, Potatoes, Green Onions. It didn’t satisfy my hunger, but I guess that’s the point of the three day diet, to starve a bit eh?
Day 3 dinner was a tough one. We were at a birthday party for India’s friend and we’re friends with her parents so we were there. I had to turn down sushi, chicken, cupcakes, beer and other goodies. Our friends knew I was on this diet though and they hooked it up. Veggie only rolls which were yummy (the dark red is beets, not raw fish). I also had a ton of potatoes and ate til I couldn’t eat anymore hoping to be able to sleep better. It kinda worked. So there we go, I survived. I weighed myself the day after this was done and was down about three pounds. Wahoo! Now, the hard part, to keep it off ..
