    Fruitarian Lifestyle

    I am investigating the Fruitarian diet or way of life. Does anyone have any experience with eating choice?

    I don't have any experiences with fruitarianism, but I'm interested in why you want to try it (if at all).

      I was getting tired of eating meat and I was saying to myself can I live off fruits and nuts. Hence I found the Fruitarian Lifestyle. It’s more of a curiosity and investigation at the moment.

        I am vegan so, although I don't eat only fruit and nuts, I do eat a lot of fruit and nuts! I would guess that it would be hard to feel full on fruit alone, unless you were eating a lot of starchy fruits (bananas?) or just eating a lot of fruits throughout the day. I'd be interested to hear how it goes if you decide to try a Fruitarian diet. I've also read about something called the Nutritarian diet, which focuses on nutrient-dense, whole plant foods (there is a book called "Eat to Live" by Joel Fuhrman which talks about this type of diet). You also might want to check out Darebee's article on Plant-Based Eating.

            Coincidentally, I’m watching a documentary about how such a diet may have contributed to Steve Jobs’s fatal illness, and caused Aston Kutcher’s pancreatitis. Might be best to discuss with a professional.

              Don’t worry it was more a curiosity than anything else. I did more investigation and see that the lifestyle is missing essential B12 among others.

              I can see where the lifestyle can be appealing but also where it has short comings.

              Thanks for all your advice and engagement.

              Long live the Hive 😁

                Granted, there's a LARGE GAP between being fruit and nuts only and just not eating meat that you can explore. Tofu really is amazing once you learn how to work with it. The Modern Hero diet also offers a lot of alternatives to meat for proteins like chickpeas, lentils... I don't consider myself vegetarian but I've been mostly eating a vegetarian diet lately because it's healthier and the pandemic has made meat EXPENSIVE, and one thing I've quickly realized is how much I was overdoing proteins. Having a small portion of a smart protein and carbs with a lot of fruits and veggies really does make a difference, and I don't find myself missing the junk food as often. Hope that info might be helpful to you.
