What would you suggest for the guy who is allergic to 90% of fruits? I can't eat most citrus fruits, even apples! Also, I have a slight addiction to Mountain Dew (30-ish oz per day), would you recommend quitting cold turkey, or gradually over time?
ANSWER: I suggest eating whatever fruits that you do not have an allergy to. You can also fill your diet with a lot of vegetables and even carrots and peas which are typically sweeter than most other vegetables. I normally suggest that when someone is looking for a snack they should eat fruit but in your case i would suggest eating carrots/snow peas or vegetables high in fiber in order to fill you up.
As far as your soda addiction goes you can quit cold turkey which would be the healthiest and most beneficial option or you can go to diet Mt. Dew. The third option would be to cut your real Mt. Dew with diet to adjust to the taste of diet. Your can do 75% real/25% diet the first weeks then 50/50 the second, 25/75 the third, and then simply diet the fourth.
