Meet the fruitarians, who believe we can live on raw fruit alone

Definitely not Freelee pictured above. She's given up on 100% raw or 100% fruit. Her diet includes white sugar, soft drinks and going to Thai and vegan restaurants and eating anything and everything that is labelled vegan - including junk food vegan. As long as it's labelled ' vegan ' she's ok - including sprite. That picture is now out-dated.

It would be interesting to follow the 100% fruitarians for a month and see if they really are living on 100% fruit - probably like the breatharians who say they don't eat - but when push comes to shove they admit to eating.

True I have not seen a true breatharian, even Christ ate bread.

Hi Raw P, speaking of the article, did you ever go to Woodstock fruit festival since you live so close...and did anon go?

I saw they have an all you can eat durian and fruit buffet in Chiang mai, thailand.90 minutes long. The fruitarians are raving about it.

The article talked about using herbs and supplements so most are not advocating only fruit. Plus the WFF has a salad bar. Only a few advocate strict fruitarianism like Ann Osborne

Mike arnstein eats sometimes 30 pounds of fruit daily. No wonder he doesn't eat only organic which sometimes costs $3/lb.

I found an awesome Vietnamese fruit store that makes fresh sugar cane and kumquat juice served over ice. Last week I drank 3 large cups (24 or 32 ounces each?), a durian frozen smoothie, a pound of peeled and deseeded jackfruit and rambutan in a 3 hour period during a heat wave (I drank all the ice too which melted faster than usual, so it was diluted). My blood sugar was perfect. The heat vastly increases sweet fruit tolerance in my experience. When it's not hot, I can't drink even one sugar cane/kumquat juice without mixing it with something not sweet or it tastes too sweet. But when it's hot, I can consume a lot and I feel healthy.

John rose being half-naked is such a true depiction of the raw, high fruit lifestyle. It's the high heat that ripens fruit, is the right temp for no/few clothes and produces the antidote for the heat...juicy fruits and vegetables.

I love seeing citrus fruit tree greenhouses in snowy areas like canada. That's the way to go in the snow.

Hi Tai
I have never attended the festival but now that you are reminding me I plan to attend this year. [www.thewoodstockfruitfestival.com].

When it come to food, it all about assimilation. A high fruit diet is fine especially for those who can add some herbs to it. I need to add herbs to my diet.

I think Freelee has been eating cooked foods for about a half decade now, maybe longer.

Plants are 'bretharians.' They are autotrophs. Plants are producers. Animals are consumers. But ironically, animals existed before terrestrial plants did.

The earliest animal fossils appear to be those of invertebrates. 665-million-year-old fossils in the Trezona Formation at Trezona Bore, West Central Flinders, South Australia

The first evidence of plants on land comes from spores of mid-Ordovician age (early Llanvirn, ~470 million years ago).[17][18][19]

"Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” Genesis 1:11

And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day.


And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” Genesis 1:20

And there was evening, and there was morning—the fifth day.

-----------------

The scriptures have hidden truths that science does not agree with.

But it will seem common sense that animals need terrestrial plants to eat.
