I thought that since I had had a heavy prata breakfast, a light fruit lunch would be good. After all, a friend of mine recently posted "before" and "after" pics of himself and he lost a lot of weight after he went on a fruit diet. But his was a genuine fruit diet and not a fruit diet after a heavy prata breakfast. But still, you can't go wrong on a fruit diet or so I thought and I promptly got myself two mangoes. If there is one fruit I don't mind binging on, it's the mango.
As we all know, life is more complex than this. I felt hungry after my lunch of mangoes. My friend who went on a total fruit diet must have felt much worse. But I'm not him. I'm a practical kind of guy and I'm not one of those martyrs who are into self-immolation or who can, at the drop of a hat, go on hunger strikes just for a cause. No cause can possibly justify self-harm.
And of course BJ's strawberry cheesecake beckoned. I yielded.
This evening, I had learnt my lesson. A fruit diet is for fruit bats and monkeys. I had a huge chicken bryani dinner and I felt good about it.
