Ever eaten nothing but fruit for a week? Neither have I. But I'm going to try to beat my old record of 4 days with no starch. My menu: Cranberry sauce, Mandarin slices, peach slices, bananas, oranges, apples, grape juice, apple juice, and random, indistinguishable frozen fruit pieces. I may cave and eat 1 granola bar after large meals, but only to neutralize the acidity of my stomach.

Why? I think the occasional purging diet has some "medicinal" benefits.

How long do you think I can last?

(this is a picture of a dragonfruit, by the way. They make really, really good juice)

Um, what about tomatoes and cucumbers and avacados and corn and peas and bell peppers and squash and pumpkin? It would be a lot more healthy to include those in your diet along with all those sugary fruits. If you start to crave starch, fry up some un-brown plantains--they're exactly like potatoes. Avacados have fat in them too--really healthy fat. Did anybody know cucumbers are berries?

I think in the end I'd much rather go on a vegetable died that a fruit diet. Who could tire of sweet carrots and crisp celery and substantive, flavorful broccoli? (seriously)

Alas, we have none of those items in the house!

A vegetable purging diet would be cool, too. Fruit diets have helped in the past, so I'm anticipating a similar benefit now. And, as for fat & starch, those are the exact things I'm trying to avoid. Fiber it is!!! *yuk*

Nice word verification.
