Fruit Fast (I'm sorry)

I know that everyone was curious about how my fruit fast was going to go, but I'm sad to say that after one day, its off. Sadly, as a college student, I don't have the funds to buy truckloads of fruit. The fruit fast is an interesting idea, but I have to pay for a ton of fruit, because I'm hungry if I don't. You actually have to eat double your usual meal amount in fruit to compensate for the lost calories. I've been starving all day, and I'm so sick of apples! We have like no fruit...just apples and fruit salad and some really nasty looking oranges. Yes, I know its only three days, but I have had such a craving for like everything besides fruit that its not even funny. Ironically, I've fasted before; no problem. I'm Catholic, so I fast at least twice a year. However, fasting was easy compared to this. Its strange; you wouldn't think that it would be so hard to go a whole day and only eat fruit...but strangely enough, it leaves me hungrier than when I pretty much starve myself. Huh. Maybe after I graduate and have the time and money to try again, I will. Just, not for right now.


  1. Omnivores can live eating anything but seem to do poorly on one thing. I have found that true for me. I do eat a lot of fruit in season. When it is expensive, not so much.
    You really should read up on nutrition and how to get what you need with and without animals or fish. Just a rotation of foods seasonally will make your skin look good.
    Not to mention intestinal improvements.
    Studying the fad folks ain't where it's at.

  2. I remember one day I was craving fruit, so I went to the store and got all sorts of things like apples, bananas, strawberries, blueberries, and I can't remember what else. Anyway, I chopped up all the fruit I bought, filled a medium sized mixing bowl, and ate the whole dang thing! I was still hungry afterwards too.

  3. Hahaha, I don't know why I find this funny, but it is. I have like four oranges I haven't eaten yet, and I can't bring myself to do it. Maybe I'll make a cake with them. But, like Evan said, you tried. :-)

  4. hehe emmy needs more protein in her silly diet, right i'm going to get a full english :D

  5. Haha; you guys may laugh, but I've been sooo hungry today! Its not even funny...I think that Javmango is right...I'm going to need more protein. :P
