    I can't wait to see what gets posted after beer #3!

    I would assume that Jim up the road can get married in the U.S? I base this on the fact that while the rest of the world recognizes that a tomato is a fruit, the united states supreme court ruled it to be a vegetable (no, I am not making this up, look up Nix vs Hedden.) It follows that if Jim is tomato-like in Canada that he would be considered a vegetable, and not a fruit in America. Naturally, it would follow that he would be subject to the import tax on vegetables which spurred this court challenge and required to pay a tariff to enter the U.S...

    With that out of the way, is this fruit only, or can I add mushrooms to your list. If I am stuck with fruit I will add berries of almost any type as well as pineapple and kiwi.

    Anything in season, really. =) It's the end of fall, so apples might be out, but if you get the chance, make some home made apple crisp. Delish!

    However, on a practical note: By "healthy fruit diet" you don't mean only eating fruit, do you? That would certainly not be healthy!

    It's so hard to find good, fresh quince at market. I had a quince tree growing up, so I've fond memories of eating it as a kid.

    I'm sorry but someone else must have been posting on my PC last night. I vaguely remember it getting dark at about 5pm then it all gets rather hazy...icon_lol.gif

    PS Say, if Jim is considered a vegetable in the US, then he's not a fruit! He can get married down there because the people screaming no to marriage for Jim are often little more than vegetables themselves! icon_biggrin.gif

    In my younger days, (when I still had will-power icon_redface.gif ), I used to go on fruit, nut and vegetable diets. Ate only raw, unprocessed things.

    The first 36 hours are a little difficult, but after that I felt fantastic. Great thing about this diet is, that you can eat as much as you want. icon_biggrin.gif

    Longest I did this was for 3 weeks and I lost a lot of weight that way. But, as with all diets, the poundage returned pretty quickly. icon_cry.gif

    And it is not a very social diet, no eating out, boyfriend couldn't keep it, so he had to cook just for himself.icon_neutral.gif

    I love apples, strawberries, pomegranates (though eating them is a big mess), oranges, kiwi and raspberries.

    Diets where you eliminate X foodgroup for Y period of time are generally not healthy!

    Fad diets where one eliminates a whole foodgroup (carbs, meat, etc) sends your body out of whack because it needs to re-adjust the entire digestive system. It isn't good to do this! The weightloss, as quoted, will be temporary because the body will re-adjust when you go off the "diet" to a similar state beforehand. You ruin your well working system when really, it's the habits that need to be changed!

    Diets aren't meant to be temporary. The true "diet" is what you eat NOT what you don't eat. If you want to have a healthy diet, it's one that you can have for a lifetime without regrets.

    Totally agree with this (now, that I'm older and wiser) But there are big books written about how humans should only consume raw foods as our digestive system has not had the time to adjust to cooked food.... etc, etc. It's not easy to determine what is good info and what's hogwash.

    Apples and pears! They are as seasonal as fruit can get in winter since they have been harvested in fall and store well through the winter. They are alkalizing and anti-inflammatory to counteract the damaging effects of the western diet. Outside of the fruit category, I'd also choose beets. icon_smile.gif
