How did week 1 go? Please share with us in the comments section below. I would love to hear.
For week 2 we will still keep drinking lots of water like we did in week 1, but now we will add something new.

Fruit platters I made for my brother in law’s engagement party

Week 2 is all about replacing our sweet treats with healthier options.
Instead of going for that candy bar make yourself a big bowl of cut up fruit or even drizzle a little dark chocolate over the top. You can sprinkle it with some sliced almonds and unsweetened shredded coconut for a delicious healthy dessert.

Fruit is so good for you. Not only is it sweet and delicious but fruit is filled with fiber and will help keep you full.
No one should be nervous that eating fruit will make you gain weight. If you do, get that out of your head. You will see that eating fruit will make you feel better and more energized since it is also high in water content.

To make things easier, try to wash and cut up fruit the night before so you have a big bowl on hand to have whenever you want throughout the day.
You are much more likely to eat it if it is already prepped.

I will be back next week with some healthier sweet treat recipes!
What is your favorite fruit?

  1. i did keep to the amount of water suggested and managed to lose the weight i gained over Pesach and Brother in laws wedding week. a total of 7 pounds!!

  2. I have a concern about eating a lot of fruit for snacks, namely that it is full of sugar. Yes, it has fiber, but a snack should be more balanced and include some protein in addition to the fast carbs of fruit. I agree that fruit is a lot healthier than most of the junk we tend to like to eat for snacks, but balance is also important. It may be that you are just trying to get people to leave the junk behind and will get to the balance part later. If so, wonderful. I realize I'm just seeing a small part of the overall plan, but felt the need to comment about balance. And moderation in all things.

  3. Hi! Yes, as the plan goes on I will bring in the importance of protein. My goal here is to get used to choosing fruit over junk and start to enjoy it. Though fruit has sugar, the sugars are processed differently in our bodies than white refined sugar. The whole reason for that is the fiber. The fiber in the fruit helps slow down the release of the sugars therefore decreasing that usual blood sugar spike we get from refined sugar. Everyone knows their own body and how much they can handle, but with this information to back me, I do believe fruit is still a better option if you have a sweet tooth. Thanks for joining in!

  4. I know im a bit late to chime in, but ive been enjoying eating fruit and not feeling guilty about it! All on moderation and as a junk alternative, i think ive been keeping it to a healthy level

  5. Last week I bought a beautiful large watermelon, the slices were great as a snack as they weren't just delicious and refreshing but also filled me up so I didn't feel the need to snack on other things.
    I also used half of the watermelon to make a watermelon sorbet/slush which I used as a light and refreshing dessert 🙂
