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 day, fruit day. Or even fruit day, fruit day, meat day, and so on. Or the other way around, meat day, meat day, fruit day and so on.
On meat days, you're paleo - high fat, low to moderate protein, low carbs (generally). On fruit days, you're a fruitarian - low fat, low protein, high carbs, monoeat as much fruit as you like but only fruit. It would be like carb cycling.
My thoughts are: there wouldn't be vitamin deficiency seen in vegan diets or the low fiber/constipation seen in paleo/meat-and-fat-rich diets.
And for those who fear the fruit or rather, fructose: http://www.alanaragonblog.com/2010/01/29/the-bitter-truth-about-fructose-alarmism/
Is this a legitimate way to "hack paleo"?
Edit: I understand those are two very different ideologies. I'm talking only in terms of health and not even like, "optimal health", "this is the pure way" kind of thing. I'm talking, benefiting health by improving and/or eliminating the nuisances of a paleo styled diet.
Edit2: FYI, I'm happy with my meat-based, fat-laden paleo diet. But I was reading about the Nikoley vs DurianRider debate a few days ago and got to thinking, (besides that DurianRider is a little off the deep end) that there must be some benefit with a predominantly carb heavy, fruit based diet, even if it were only for endurance training reasons. I also thought, why can't everyone just get along? =D I was also reading about the fruitarian diet on 30bad and stumbled on CastleGrok's blog and it occurred to me that you could do a mash of the two and get the best of both worlds. It was just a thought and if I knew the answer to this question, I wouldn't be posting it on paleohacks; I'd be writing my own blog and coining new worlds like Fruitarianeo or Pruitareo... Hmmmmm, ideas are brewing.
