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)?

I'm just playing devil's advocate here, but, well, here goes: 1) Yes, he does look skinny. Honestly, that's kind of relative. "Fat" to one person could be "average" to another. If you look at pictures of people from the '50s, they didn't look... (more)

Maybe they eat a lot of avocado, olives, hazelnuts, chestnuts, walnuts, palm fruit, and the like. Surely a fruitarian will be in much better shape in tropical areas than in the big white North where only acid, sugary fruits are fresh during a... (more)

As we all browse on the internet for speculated opinions and blind assumptions we have to ask ourselves where are the facts? and why is it hard to find the facts. Well its quiet easy, not only the meat and dairy industry completely run the western... (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)

Sounds like you didn't incorporate enough greens and veggies on the 811. Done correctly the results are amazing. I can turn on or off weight gain strictly from increase or decrease of fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds.

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)

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 also think it makes sense to eat fruit when its available fresh in the summer. I eat about 2 or 3 per day in summer and 1 a day in winter.

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)

I see nothing healthy in eating fruit all day..why would I do this to my body and give it only sugar a whole day? poor insulin rate, poor stomach acid :/

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)

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)

I know when I stay 80/10/10 RV how much better I feel, but hard to keep on As for others talking of older folk on this lifestyle I suggest they Google Fred Besci very fit man early eighties and been 80/10/10 about 50 years
