The Fruit Flush Diet: Pros
The main strength of the Fruit Flush diet is that it encourages you to eat fresh fruits and vegetables, which are an essential part of a healthful diet.
"Fruit is one of the healthiest foods in the world," says dietitian Katherine Tallmadge, RD, national spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association and author of Diet Simple: 192 Mental Tricks, Substitutions, Habits and Inspirations. "The more fruits and vegetables people eat, the healthier they are, and usually the thinner they are," she says.
