On the first day of diet, you are allowed to consume as many fruits as you wish, excluding bananas, but nothing else. Cantaloupes and watermelons are mostly recommended since they are loaded with fiber. Other healthy choices incorporate papaya, kiwi, oranges, and apples. You are also advised to drink 10 to 12 glasses of fresh water during the day. Starvation is strictly forbidden and anytime you feel the hunger pangs strike, combat them with a serving of fruit.
