    I doubt it. Ask your doctor about carb counting. Basically, think about what you eat and try to cut down on carb heavy foods like bread, potatoes, cereals and pastas. Don't eliminate them altogether because you do need some, it is just that it is way too easy to eat too many. Try to replace those you cut with protein rich foods (meat, cheese, eggs) as that tends to keep you feeling more full for longer. Don't worry so much about how much stuff you eat as what stuff you eat. Also, just try to work in some more activities in your daily life. Walk a dog, walk to a store nearby rather than take the car or bus, take stairs rather than an elevator, take a little walk at lunchtime. Just little things to make you more active. If there is a sport or activity you enjoy then it is even easier to make that lifestyle change.
    Remember that if you don't enjoy something, you're unlikely to keep it up long term: We are essentially visceral beings ruled by immediate desires. I, for example, could eat chocolate until I explode :-)
    Good luck.

    Yes, you will lose weight, but it will be an extremely unhealthy loss. Your body will go into famine mode and rely on the best food source it has available to it...your muscle. You will lose quite a bit of weight fairly fast, but it won't be the fat you want to lose and that lost muscle reduces your body's ability to burn calories. This means that should you return to a normal eating habit, you will gain fat much faster than before you went on the starvation diet. If you don't return to normal eating habits your body will continue consuming muscle as long as it can until it has weakened the most important muscle -- the heart -- to the point that it can no longer function. The best weight loss plan I have ever come across is to eat a healthy, balanced diet in reasonable portions. Poor portion control is what causes most of the overweight and obesity issues, as well as poor quality of food. If you feel the need to control your appetite, increase the fiber in your diet...protein-rich foods are good if you need more protein to hit your body's daily needs, but after that fiber is what will best fill you up. Nuts are a favorite because they are fast, convenient, and also provide some plant-based protein. If possible, go with unsalted nuts as salt tends to whet the appetite rather than sate it.

    I agree you will lose weight and this is not a healthy way to do it.  If your goal is too lose weight, and you don't mind being unhealthy, eating vegetables instead of fruit would give you even less calories.  Also, to get the most out of your fasting, you will also want to exercise at least once a day.

    If that's you in the photo, then you don't need to lose weight. Lots of people confuse losing weight with muscle toning. Toning the various muscle groups goes a long way toward shaping the kind of body you want. Before you start a fruit and nut dieting program, consider your height-weight-body fat ratio. If you are reasonably close then consider an exercise program.

    you'll lose weight in the form of body fat stores, muscle mass and bone density. Which isn't really what you want.

    Also you'll get to a point where you can't starve yourself any longer and have to start eating again. Usually this means binging on unhealthy foods. By this time you have trained your metabolism to run very slowly and to store as much energy as possible as fat reserves, because the body no longer expects to be re-fuelled regularly.

    What this all means is that long term, you will actually GAIN body fat by following this strategy.

    You need protein and a BUNCH of other nutrients to survive that you don't get from fruit. 

    Want to lose weight?  Here's a list of foods you SHOULD eat:
    1. fruits
    2. vegetables
    3. lean meats
    4. fish
    5. whole grains

    Try limiting your calorie intake to about 1,200 to 1,500 calories per day and EXERCISE! If you can do this then you'll lose weight and tone up (which is much sexier) quite quickly.  Try working out for about 30 to 60 minutes 4 to 5 times a week.  If you want to lose weight faster try working out 6 to 7 days a week.  Obviously if you're not used to working out you want to start out slow at about 15 to 20 minutes 2 to 3 times per week.

    A Very best diet plan for fat loss also involves drinking a lot of water. Drinking a lot of water is good for a number of reasons. It helps you to stay properly hydrated, it flushes out your system and keeps you healthy well.
