I am going back to the fruit cleanse with a couple of tweaks to start with and then I will adjust as I go. Last year I did the fruit cleanse 100% as it stated and I had amazing results, I did after two weeks start adding back food and to my surprise my taste buds were also changed forever since I really still can't eat bread, it just tastes bad which is good. Anyway, I do have an attachment to my coffee and had a really hard time adding it back into my diet because it tasted so bad but I did it
I was just missing something and that cup of coffee was it!
So for the first week I will have a cup of coffee, I will ry to limit it to one, and I will eat small amounts of protien like cottage cheese or boiled eggs, other than that I will eat obly low glycemic fruits. If my weight loss is very small, then I need to ffirst reduce or eliminate the protien for now. I am doing strength training 3 times a week so I feel I need a little to sustain my muscle growth. If reducing/eliminating my protien helps me lose better then I will continue for a small amount of time, a week or so if not then I need to eliminate the coffee

I will take away the coffee for a week and see if that helps if so, then I know that my boedy does not like the coffee and maybe I am producing cortisol because of it. I can always add it back later, when I go into maintenance if that ever happens.
In March I was 184 and so happy I had big plans of reaching the 170's for the first time in a while but no the corona virus came alone and for some weird reason I gained. Then in April I did an intermittent fasting experiment for a month. I exercised while fasting, didn't really make changes to my routine, and tried to eat healthy food. Yep, you guessed it, I gained
There for a while groceries were hard to come by so I couldn't eat as well as I wanted and to an extent prices are still kind of high and fresh fruit is not as easy to come by. So here I am, I am going to try the fruit diet again.
I will continue with my workouts of 3 cardio days and 3 strength training days with one day for flexibility training. I am currently following a lady called Sydney Cummings on youtube and I am having good results with her. My balance has improved, I no longer have to hold on to something when doing a lunge, my strength has increased, I have more stamina, and I have a more tight body. Now my weight fluctuates when I just want it to go down and I haven't lost inches but I am leaner so onward and upward. Hopefully I can stay consistent with my exercise and my diet and get my body and scale going in the right direction.
