I have been fasting during Lent and in the fall for the last three years. I love this diet. It is very healthy and easy to follow. You can eat anything that is plant based nuts, fruits, or vegetables. I love vegetables so it works for me. It is very easy to stick to. I do allow one day a week to add meat to my fast. Usually fish on Fridays. I believe in this diet. It has worked for me and I love trying the different recipes. I have lost 25 pounds in the 40 day fast. So it is very rewarding too. Always check with your doctor before starting a new diet. Good luck.

Good for you if you love vegetables! For me, it is so difficult to stick to a diet when it means to eat mostly vegetables! Fruits and nut, it's ok for me but i hate particulary salads and lettuce (may be because i ate them just when I'm on a diet!). Well, I hope I will stay in the good way instead of that!

I thought that way too, but now I have learned how to cook and eat differently with a huge variety of delicious foods that will totally satisfy my appetite. I have researched and explored many new ways to include protein into my diet. It is far from eating just salad. This is a good short term diet or a good lifestyle diet if you choose to eat healthy. Yes, it isn't for everyone, but it is fun to try all the new recipes (which I love trying new dishes), so please don't totally rule it out without trying it. You mentioned you hate vegetables, well then it probably won't work for you. I use this diet as a fast to improve my health. It works for me.

I don't mind eating lots of vegetables and fruit, but I would need more protein than one day a week.

how i lost weight easy
Leighmann2016 maybe someone your age shouldn't be having to worry about losing weight. Maybe spend more time playing out with your friends and you'll have no weight problem.
