I have a super sweet tooth lol so I love fruit! Well I've already read the Jay Robb Fruit Flush. Well now he's come out with a 14 day diet. It looks good already lol. I like his protein too because it's very inexpensive and doesn't contain a bunch of artifical ingredients or fillers. Check it out: www.jayrobb.com

So any way, I will review the 14 day diet and post here. Has anyone else ever read any of his materials or used his products?

happymommy 05-30-2007 01:05 PM

I've used his protein, before I started w/ my company and liked it. I never read any of his work. I tried one of the protein bars and hated it. :)

The fruit flush is basically a 3 day cleanse where you cleanse your body with fruit. Watermelon, peaches, apples, bananas, plums, grapes...ALL YOU CAN EAT![img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img] I plan to do this one soon as well as the 14 day diet. I just finished reading the book and all I can say is he is way too generous to only charge 5 bucks for this ebook! My mouth was watering the entire time reading the book (well except when he was talking about BO and BM's[img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img]) and it looks so easy to do. I mean eating fruit all day as much as you want...who wouldn't love that lol.



On a Spiritual note, this book really spoke to me spiritually even though he never said anything remotely religious throughout the book. It spoke to me because IMO this is how our creator designed us. We were designed to eat every fruit, and herb and seed (Genesis 1:29). Also it's interesting but if you look throughout the Bible, the only meat man ate was fish and eggs. They were permitted to eat beef and chicken however in those days that didn't make sense because you'd literally be eating your money. A chicken can produce way more chickens and eggs than it can a meal. The bartered and sold eggs in the market place. Also a cow or Ox was used to plow their fields so if they ate it, they'd be eating their money. The only exceptions were the quail in the desert (which Ironically killed a large portion of the camp) and the meat used for sacrifices. In the New Testament you only see Jesus refering to fish and eggs as a food item. Interesting to say the least.http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley1.gif

Me too. [img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img]

Great observation on the Biblical perspective. Sooo true.

~ Debi ~ 05-30-2007 05:33 PM

I am doing the fruit flush too! Thanks to FVM of course!!

I am looking forward to getting the protein in the mail (UPS Ground - how long does that take? A week or so I would think) so that I can start!! i like the serving sizes too.I would have thought a serving would be smaller than what he suggets.

I will definitely post my results as well.

We will be good support systems for each other!!

happymommy 05-30-2007 06:00 PM

Do you only eat fruit and have protein shakes?

I just couldn't eat that much fruit, I don't think. I like fruit, but I like veggies more.

Let us know how it goes, both of you!

caitalexmommy 05-30-2007 07:14 PM

FVMom, I totally agree on the religious thing. We only ate fruit to begin with... after Adam and Eve sinned and were cast out of Eden, part of their punishment was to "toil the land" ie: gardening. We didn't start eating meat until after the flood. After Noah and his family came off the ark, God started permitting eating meats. So, I agree... fruits were God's original plan for us, so you can't go wrong with them. :) Let us know how it goes! I'm very interested. http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif(On a side note-have you looked into the maker's diet? It follows those principles as well. I've been interested in it forever, but haven't done much research. lol)

FV Mom 05-30-2007 07:23 PM

You know, I've had that book for months and never got past the forwardhttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley9.gifhttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gifI may crack it open tonighthttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif

amber4842 05-30-2007 07:49 PM

FVMom,
funny you mention biblical ref. and fruit. Last summer we were picking wild blackberries to make jam and the kids were complaining b/c they were hungry. I told them to eat the berries, they would make a great snack. They thought they'd be gross, I told them God knows what's good for you, you don't see doughnuts growing on trees do ya? http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif
They thought that was funny, tried the berries and loved them.

BTW, I'm going to do the fruit flush soon :)

Baasically the way the plan works (I don't want to give away too much as the ebook is only 5 bucks) is for the 14 day plan you eat as much fruit as you want. He has guidelines on the types of fruit to eat, but anything counts: Cherries, bananas, watermelon, cantalope, honeydew, peaches, pears, apples, etc. Don't forget that many things we consider veggies are actually fruit: cucumbers, peppers, squash, tomatoes, coconut (in moderation) etc. You eat 3 fruit meals a day or more if desired. Then at night you have a giant veggie salad, with homemade dressing (no store bought stuff because of all the stuff in them) with loads of veggies, you can add nuts, another serving of fruit, and a serving of protein (3-5 ounces). Also if you're still hungry you can have a shake he gives the recipe for that includes protein. The shakes are optional. I don't do too well with meat (outside of this organic canned chicken I buy and egg whites) so I supplement with protein shakes a lot. Sha***e's shake would work too. You do this for 14 days, then you can continue on with it if you desire or modify it, quit it etc lol.

The 3 day fruit flush works very similar. With the fruit flush you have a pre cleanse day where you drink a 6oz serving of a protein shake every 2 hours (for 5 total) and the HUGE veggie salad with protein (chicken, fish, turkey or egg whites) Then on the cleanse days you have a serving of fruit every 2 hours (5 total) and then the veggie salad (no meat this time) and a protein drink.

There's more details about it as well aswhy it works so well in the book so you have to buy it to learn morehttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif. I can't wait to do this as I lub lub lub fruit!http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif

Yum! Fruit is my best friend! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gifI could easily lapse into a coma eating oranges! Sounds like something to look into since I PLAN on doing some shopping this weekend! Don't know if I could do the 14 day but the 3 day sounds doable (I do love my chicken breasts!)

This is the response I received my Civilian Fitness Program Director, Doug Briggs Ph.D., CSCS.

Hi Vilma!

Okay, you want to replace carbohydrates with just fruits.Fruits are carbohydrates with fiber.What you are getting instead of sucrose is fructose.Both are carbohydrates that contain 4 calories per gram.If you are replacing carbohydrates of the white sugar, white flour variety, this is good.The less refined white products you have in your diet the better.I like the idea of fruits and vegetables in a person's diet.Your workouts will not suffer, but may actually improve.The main factor is to stay within you calorie requirements for the day and the particular percentage of carbohydrates to protein to fat ratio.

Try to use as many "organic" fruits and vegetables as possible and do not neglect the protein.

I read the fruit diet and I think you should go for it.There is nothing in
there that is going to harm you and many people are indeed allergic to
grains.I do the fresh fruit smoothie in the morning and I know it has made me feel better (even though I throw in some raw oatmeal to clean out the arteries).

<DIV dir=ltr>I'm going to experiement in maybe adding more fruit to my diet &amp; see how my results go. I'm a little sceptical because it IS a lot of sugar...

Okay, that watermelon looks really, really good - nice and fresh and juicy! Ours around here doesn't look that appetizing yet http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley19.gif Watermelon is my favorite!!!


The only thing I worry about with me is that I just did the Candida cleanse in March and I know certain fruits will cause candida to go crazy, so that would kind of defeat the purpose of me doing the Candida cleanse to begin with. BUT....I do think adding more fruit and veggies to my day won't hurt. I'm not sure I'm getting enough right now, so I'll have to check into it.
Thanks for posting the pic - now I'm wanting watermelon and can't get it yet! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley18.gif

veperez 05-31-2007 09:49 AM



Maybe you can add just the fruits that don't flare up Candida?? I think it's trial an error.

FV Mom 05-31-2007 09:50 AM

Hey Vilma, I'm reading the glycemic index book and they talk about fruit and veggies a lot. They say half your meals should be fruits and veggies and none of the fruits are high glycemic or have a high Glycemic load, so what Jay says in the book is correct. You body needs sugar, it's all about getting the right kind. Fruit sugar doesn't spike the blood sugar or make you "high" like other carbs do so it's very good. Look at Jack Lalaine! (I gotta get me a power juicer[img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img]) he's been juicing for years and he looks fab!

jnmurra 05-31-2007 09:51 AM

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking - stay away from the citrus. I'm not going to cleanse again this soon, buta little more fruit won't kill me http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif

Eating fruits IS better than eating all that refined carb stuff (white sugar, flour, etc...) That glycemic load stuff is interesting... I don't know how long it's been since i've been avoiding bananas... YEARS!!! I had my first taste of banana yesterday &amp; I must say, it was YUMMY!!!

It's getting HOT here in EL PASO... http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley11.gif

I might go and buy me some watermelon today. http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley17.gifAnd i'm working on my nutrition planner for next week so I can get in enough calories including fruits as my main carbohydrate choice, protein, &amp; healthy fats. I don't think i'll go ALL fruit though... Gotta ease into it slowly.

The no citrus ONLY applies for those of us currently on a Candida Cleanse, but if you're doing it regular, citrus is great, He actually highly reccommends oranges.http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif

Talking about Candida... FV Mom &amp; Jen... there is an answer that he has for that in the Question &amp; Answer Page in the Fruit Diet book(pg. 44. - Will al lthe sugar in fruit cause me problems with hypoglycemia, Candida, or result in the development of diabetes?)

I try to start it on a Saturday, when I'm not working because I'm a little cranky that first day.

I saw that. The particular cleanse that I followed said to avoid, so I did while on that cleanse. Actually, I was looking online and the candida cleanses I have found have said to avoid citrus. "Experts" on one side saying to eat citrus, "expets" on the other saying not to eat citrus http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley29.gif

IMO, for optimum results, I think it's best to follow the particular instructions for whatever cleanse you're doing since they're all different.

But since I'm not cleansing now, I can eat whatever I want! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif J/K

I may try this one when I cleanse in late summer/easy fall. It looks easy enough. http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley1.gif

My whey protein powder has just shipped but isn't set to arrive until 6/7. So, looks like I cannot start until after that weekend since we are going to NYC for a black tie dinner. I can't be on my 3rd day of fruit and go to that dinner.

So, I will follow how you are all doing and I will post when I start too.

Enjoy ladies! Hope you're liking the fruit!

Wish I knew that before I ordered it! But that's okay, maybe I will venture out to Whole Foods this weekend so I can start early...I can always use the other powder later, right?

Wow Kass &amp; Vilma, between the two of you, you are a wealth of information! Thanks, as always, for your info!

Hey ya'll, I just bought a can of the strawberry Whey and YUMMY! I was really shocked because he doesn't add sugar or artificial sweeteners to his product plus add the fact that whey protein generally taste bleh! I give it 2 thumbs up! Helps me get my protein in since I'm not a big meat eater (my sister is the exact same way...well except when it comes to Mc Donlads Cheeseburgers[img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img] My family used to call me "Rabbit" because I was always munching on raw fruits and vegetables)

I went and bought a new can of whey protein at our nutrition store and I'm scurred! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gifI've always had to mix my protein with milk and some kind of fruit. So mixing it with plain water will be a challenge. I got chocolate so I'm hoping I don't gag http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley26.gif. My fruit flush will officially commence NEXT weekend. Hey, there's an arts festival in town and I can't neglect the chocolate covered cheesecake http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif.........or fried veggies, kettle corn, pizza, smoothies.........

Thanks for that mental picture! Chocolate covered cheesecake? Can I have a napkin...better yet, a towel, to wipe up my drooling? http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif There's nothing better than choclate &amp; cheesecake in the same equation.

Have fun at the festival.

I am also doing my flush next weekend because I am awaiting my whey powder to come via UPS.
