After reading all about the nutritarian diet outlined in the book Eat to Live by Joel Furman, MD, I embarked on the Six-Week Plan he outlines to get started on the nutritarian lifestyle. He believes in eating a diet that’s nutrient dense, and fresh fruits are part of that. In fact, he recommends a minimum of four fruits a day.
I was a little scared to eat this much fruit for two reasons: eating too much sugar makes me bloated, and would eating tons of fruit make me gain weight?
Well, if I was going to do this little fruit experiment, now was the perfect time, as summer fruits were in season! I even have a farm stand down the road from me that I can bike to to go blueberry picking and buy fresh peaches. Keep reading to find out how I ate that much fruit, how I felt, what effect it had on my body, and if I’ll keep it up.
