    It would take a ton of apples to make someone fat on an all uncooked apple diet.

    You would have to purposely gorge yourself, and purposely avoid exercise.

    Apples have so much fiber, that a large portion of it would fly through your digestive system before it would make you fat. It would legitimately be a challenge to get fatter on an all apple diet. But I'm sure it's possible if someone were trying to. But it would be really hard.

    Well let's see.

    116 calories to an apple.

    3500 calories in a pound of fat.

    1500 base calorie a day level.

    Eat 43 apples a day to gain pound of fat.

    You could eat 15 a day and gain a little over time.

    That's not taking into account fiber intake, and the fact that the rest of the apple is much more easily digested than most of what we eat on a regular basis. I think your metabolism would speed up on an all apple diet, and you would burn off any excess calories you would get from the apple.

    It's calculable that someone could possibly gain weight on a celery diet, but it impossible in any practical circumstance.

    Get one. You won't regret it.

    My parents got one when I worked at a hardware store that sold them and they used my discount. Best investment ever.

    I cook about three days' worth of food on it on Sunday afternoon then do the same thing on Wednesday night. Three chicken breasts and three turkey burgers. Boom. Lunch and dinner cooked for three days. Throw in some steamed microwave bags of veggies and some rice and you're set.

    I make pizza on it every now and then. You don't even have to make your own. Digiorno tastes better on it than it does in the fridge and if it's defrosted it takes like 10 minutes.

    Thanksgiving turkey. Best Thanksgiving ever.

    I tried the vegetarian thing when I was in college. I lasted 23 hours. I was STARVING. Ran across the street to Jimmy John's and got a delicious turkey sandwich.

    Why did you make the switch?

    I don't know why some people are so anti ground turkey. I can only taste a difference if its an actual burger.
