As all of u know, i planned to go on a diet to lose some weight starting from 16th of this month. I was very enthusiastic and had a great start to my plan. The first day as mentioned had to be full of fruits of my choice. But due to my greediness i restricted myself mainly to watermelons and also ate little quantities of grapes, apple, pineapple and pomegranate. I felt elated because the day went off so well. I also did some workouts and played soccer on the evening of the same day.

Dawn of day 2 and this is where trouble began. First of all, it was my mistake cos i believed that day 2 will go on smoothly as well. I'll tel u what. It was the toughest day of ma life. Boiled vegetables tastes yuck. Cant stand their odor. So i consumed only raw carrots, a cucumber and raw tomatoes for the whole day apart from one baked potato that i had for breakfast. Trust me when i say this: "It makes you feel sick consuming only vegetables. Literally sick." I felt feverish and my tongue felt so bad. I didn't have a good night's sleep and kept thinking about whether i should continue.

Finally came day 3. I still felt i could continue and had watermelons for breakfast. Only after i had finished eating them i really felt that this was not for me. I came up with a wise decision: I'll QUIT. It doesn't mean that i am a quitter. Only problem is the diet is too stupid to follow. Then i realized that if you wanna lose weight or get fit, then follow a balanced diet along with some exercises. FAD DIETS DON'T WORK.
