Fruit and vegetable weight loss?

I weigh 250 pounds, I want to get rid off them to get healthier. Is it possible to diet on no more than fruit and cooked vegetables?

Also, is there any risk of getting diabetes in the process? I mean, considering fruits contain sugar.

Answer on Fruit and vegetable weight loss?

By going all natural and unprocessed with fruit and vegetables you will be doing your body a great favor! It sounds like a very healthy diet but you are missing protein which is really important for a healthy body. It might be good for you to add in a small portion of brown rice and piece of tofu or fish each day just to make sure you are getting all the nutrients you need.

You should also make sure that you eat at least 1,200 calories otherwise you risk slowing down your metabolism and gaining weight as soon as you stop eating just fruit and vegetables.
