So my wife and I are on a peculiar sort of diet. It's one of those weird ones where you try to trick your metabolism by changing your food types every few days. Unfortunately, the one constant in this exercise is a complete lack of bread, potatoes, and all other fun starches.

Which brings me to today's image, brought to you in a vaguely High Key form to demonstrate my overloaded senses and taste buds for this particular treat.

For today has been fruit day - fruit all day-- nothing but fruit,
fruit, fruit, fruit,fruit, fruit...

I'm pretty sure I'd kill for a sandwich right now.

Of course when it's over, I'll look like an Icelandic model
(Hey, a fellow can dream can't he?)

I know the effect is intentional, but this image is so stark and bright it kind of hurts my eyes. I really like the colored "shadows" under the fruit, though.

I'm on a weight-loss gambit myself. I'm on and off with the healthy eating (carbs are allowed in my plan); what I really lack is exercise. Hard to get started after an absence (laziness + a herniated disk), but I'll dig it once I'm back at it.

I'm always a bit concerned about strange diets, but having days of eating only fruit is supposed to be healthy. I'm not particularly keen on bread myself, so that wouldn't worry me too much. Now not being able to have chocolate...

Normally I wouldn't be to keen on the lighting, but under the circumstances, it makes sense.

Haha, yeah, I couldn't do only fruit for a whole day, that's rough.

I hope you took before pictures so we can all see how waif-thin you get. If you can't eat starches, then is it fruit for a few, veggies for a few, meat for a few? Then what?

Woo hoo! I laughed so hard, I'm sorry! I feel your pain. Not really, but I'll at least give you my support and hope it pans out. Great image in high key! It really does send a strong message!

I love the high key treatment, the fruit looks great! But as much as I LOVE fruit, I'd want a sandwich too after a day of nothing but fruit :-)

I dunno. I don't think I could manage a diet without bread. :) Good luck though!

Dreams are always good (Hey, there's a currently a challenge for this). Looking forward for your self-portrait after the diet :-). Anyway, good luck with it and yes, this is very high key!
