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 skinny, and not absorbing fructose well all have their place. Also, he lives off mostly bananas which are high-starch and moderate in fructose compared to some other fruits.
Also, don't under estimate the "perfect storm" of High Pufa AND high sugar diets.
I think this website has the most information about fruitarianism and its health effects. Somewhere in the millions of words there is something that I read that many fruitarians DO have symptoms that mirror diabetes, if they don't actually have diabetes. But probably the biggest takeaway I got from reading this is that most fruitarian leaders cheat on their diet and keep it a secret from their followers.
If you eat fruit, and not just drink juices, you get lots of fiber. Offsets some. But, if you eat lots of fruit hopefully you are ACTIVE and burning those carbs. Elsewise you are stressing your pancreas.
From what I undersand. . . Cells don't need insulin to use fructose for energy. The reproduced cells are made without insulin receptors so a sugar dependence occurs but not diabetes. If I'm way off, I apologize but that is how it was explained to me.
I prefer to think of the potential to get diabetes as a loaded gun and excess carbs is just a trigger. Diabetes is much more complicated than carb intake or else many primitive cultures worldwide would be largely diabetic.
i was a fruitarian for 2 years and my glucose was always fine; however, i definitely was not lean. i had a good layer of fat around all of my muscles. the "reasoning" behind this according to 30bad members was because "i was starving myself on a regular diet so now my body craved more food and thus had to gain weight." well, i got up to 140 lbs eating this way.
