Runners Tim Van Ordan and Michael Arnstein gained muscle they didn't want on 811
And there's primates.
The most common reason for strength loss is actually energy loss from eating less calories, which is common, as fruit takes up a lot more room for its calories. Put your diet into Cronometer.com and see if you're eating enough.
Chris Califano also consumes greens, nuts and seeds.

TVO consumes avocados, A LOT of greens, and little fruit compared to everyone else. He would do much better if he included oily seeds.
Michael Arnstein looks super healthy however he isn't an example of muscular.
Primates consume large amounts of greens. It has been shown in biochemistry that Vitamin A and its derivatives stimulate protein synthesis and Vitamin K stimulates keratin synthesis. -- Compare a mostly fruit eating gorilla to a solely leaf eating gorilla.. who has more muscle?
Fruit is like 90% water and doesn't take that much space and neither do greens if they are chewed properly.
Its impossible to gain muscle on a raw diet without sufficient greens.
