Apple Day

Tomorrow I will try an apple day. I found it in "Pounds and Inches". Wish me luck.

"In such cases we consider it permissible, for purely psychological reasons, to break up the plateau. This can be done in two ways. One is a so-called “apple day”. An apple-day begins at lunch and continues until just before lunch of the following day. The patients are given six large apples and are told to eat one whenever they feel the desire though six apples is the maximum allowed. During an apple-day no other food or liquids except plain water are allowed and of water they may only drink just enough to quench an uncomfortable thirst if eating an apple still leaves them thirsty. Most patients feel no need for water and are quite happy with their six apples. Needless to say, an apple-day may never be given on the day on which there is no injection. The apple-day produces a gratifying loss of weight on the following day, chiefly due to the elimination of water. This water is not regained when the patients resume their normal 500-Calorie diet at lunch, and on the following days they continue to lose weight satisfactorily."

I really liked apple days for some reason. It was easy and it produced results even if it was only in my head, you know. :) Oh, and Brandi is right it is raw apples, but I am sure you already know. Have a great day!

I always lose when I do an apple day. It seems that the this protocol makes our body retain quite a bit of water.

Good luck to ya!
