Hey I am curious what you all think of the possibility of Steve Jobs' high-fruit diet contributing to his pancreatic cancer? What's interesting is people like Anne Osborne, Don Bennett, and possibly Michael Arnstein (though not as long) have... (more)

Not only do they not get a lot of omega 6, they also have a great omega 3/6 balance. so, do raw fruit 80/10/10 dieters not get diabetes because of the low fat (specifically omega 6)?

How do you know that people on a raw fruit diet do not get diabetes?

I don't think your statement can be applied to all fruitarians. I've seen posts of people who stopped being fruitarians because it caused Type-II diabetes. Why isn't Mr. Crazy-Bananas diabetic? Hundreds of miles of biking, starting off... (more)

Holy Cow (no pun intended), but I'm sure you can get by on such bad nutrition when you look like you haven't lifted anything above 5lbs your entire life. This woman needs some meat(again no pun intended) on her bones. Sometimes I wonder if... (more)

I spent two months as a fructarian about 4ish years ago. It was way better for me than the 7 years before that when I was a "doin' it right"-vegetarian (I'm actually am allergic to grains, and ruined myself on veg*n diet). I think you can be a... (more)

Out of pure curiosity, suppose you're an avid long distance runner of average weight and you're able to consume 5500 calories a day from fruit alone, with some greens. Cronometer tells me you would meet almost all nutritional targets, except b12... (more)

I have always tended to vegetarianism since I was a young girl, and have been strongly drawn towards fruitarianism and raw food diets. At other times, I like to eat good meat, and will eat quite a bit of it for awhile, but then feel the need or... (more)

if you're open to fish, i'd do other sea creatures as well. oysters are great and they're sustainable. what about bone broths? i find them satiating and nutritious. sea vegetables like kelp might also be a good addition.

Does anybody here vastly differ their macronutrient ratios roughly in conjunction with seasonal availability - that is, gorge on fruit as a staple during the summer, and then switch over to savory, fatty, protein-filled meals in the winter? Do... (more)

I definitely believe that we are seasonal creatures and that changes in our environment and available diet stimulate many natural hormonal/epigenetic/etc changes in us that we don't yet fully understand. That said, I consider it a pretty safe bet... (more)

All this recent hub-bub about low fat raw vegan and fruitarinism got me thinking ... what if you mashed paleo together with fruitarianism? What I mean is can you cycle the two ways of eating for max benefit? For example. meat day, fruit day, meat... (more)

"What I mean is can you cycle the two ways of eating for max benefit?" Hmmm...that last part makes the question not quite valid. You can mash paleo with the Zone, or mash paleo with Ornish. In fact, you could alternate days of paleo with any... (more)

So, just wondering what people think about the 30 Bananas a Day stuff, or the ex-paleo Grok who've all gone straight fruit-only diets. It's actually quite interesting. I have lots of issues with it, but there are also tons of benefits. Mainly,... (more)

Low fat raw vegan? They are fighting evolution drivers. Their bodies will digest themselves (autophagy). Some may thrive short to medium term. Long term, who knows? Many will have to supplement. Some will become ex-LFRV. Why not enjoy fruit... (more)

I mean, I hear many anecdotes of many people doing great on raw vegan. It just may be possible that there are many ways to thrive. After all, the human body's still largely a mystery to us. Can any of us really say with great confidence that... (more)

Why would fruit be unhealthy? And why would it not be considered paleo? If the answer from the low-carbers is "It's high in carbs. It has a sugar called fructose." Well I don't think that's convincing at all. The difference between paleo and... (more)
