    Proof of the pudding is always in the eating. Try it and find out – but follow it day by day as directed and include your 2 litres of water and sip slowly, dont gulp it or it will give you stomach ache.

    I am in the process of using this method to lose weight (although, I am only doing apples and water). The first day, I lost 1.3 pounds. The second day, lost 2.7 pounds. The third day, lost 2.7 as well. The fourth day, I lost 1.6 pounds. It definitely works. Eating one apple, made me feel full for hours on end. I even ate them with peanut butter. Best tasting apples imo are SweeTangos, they are in season August through November-ish. My problem is I have an overpowering sweet tooth, love soft drinks and hate exercise. Lately, I reverted back to drinking soft drinks at night (and one or two throughout the day, I know I’m not being good…grrr), haven’t shed pounds like I did when I started this. Although, I am still below my weight when I started (about 3 weeks ago) So, I need to get back to what I did the first four days. I could see easily losing 30 pounds in 30 days by going with apples/water only. Best of luck to everyone.

    Any tips on how to keep your sweet tooth/cravings in check? My problem is that sometimes my brain and mouth is hungry but my stomach isn’t and I’ll end up snacking. I did this diet a while back, while it did work for the first 2 days (I went from 127 lbs to 124 lbs) I ended up “crashing” and eating a lot of cookies haha. How should I keep my cravings in check? Currently I’m around 126 lbs and my goal is 120 lbs.

    Grab an apple instead of cookies. Lol
