New to Fruitarianism

#1 Postby GGreen » Fri Aug 18, 2006 12:09 am

I am new to fruitarianism and trying to understand how one can just live on a fruit diet.

my questions are:

Do fruits supply all the essential amino acids?
Do fruits supply all the essential fatty acids(omega3/6)?
Do fruits supply your minerals and vitamins needs?
Doesn't a fruit diet raise your blood glucose?
Does a fruit diet provide you with enough protein for body building and enough protein just in general?
Are there any long-term healthy fruitarians?
Don't fruitarians face nutritional deficiencies because of thier restrictive diet?
Aren't fruits high on organic acid, which isn't good for you?


Not sure, but don't fruits break down into sugar fast resulting in short-term energy and increasing hungry?

Isn't too much sugar bad for you?


According to my understanding fruits are simple carbohydrates but rank low on the glycemic index (which is good.) Simple carbohydrates are supposedly bad for you in excess and should only be consumed in moderation. Aren't complex and low glycemic index carbohydrates better for you than simple ones because they are high in fibre and nutrition and convert into sugar slowly creating balanced energy.

I heard a personal trainer at the gym a few weeks ago tell the person he was helping, that fruit is empty calories. Where does one get an idea like that?

I went fruitarian for about two weeks a while back and I felt great...I just missed green veggies...I didn't feel any adverse affects whatsoever and I really didn't pay attention to what I was eating...I just ate raw fruits

When I first started....I didn't even know what fruitarianism was ....I just started eating fruits....and I felt real good!

As soon as people/experts started pressuring me into eating greens,etc....I started feeling crap!!!!

Doesn't a fruit diet increase your weight if you are concerned about your weight? Why? because your body digests fruits (simple sugar) fast because there is less molecules to breakdown resulting you constantly feeling hungry and not full. You end up eating more and storing more calories to burn.

bottom line fruits don't provide long term energy.

How do fruitarian counter this saying "Eat Simple Carbohydrates (fruit) in moderation" which many doctors and experts tell us.

Many doctors and experts believe meat is an essential part of diet, what they say pretty much lacks validity.

Your not gonna get fat eating just fruit unless you scarf down 5 bananas before you go to bed every day for a couple weeks...theres so much fiber that aids in digestion that its not an issue...plus you've gotta look at the kind of sugar...not all fruits have the same glycemic index

Fruit gets a bad rap like that, but it's an independent monosaccharide (spelling?), and eating them won't affect your blood sugar like say, breads & pastas.

Now now, it doesnt matter WHEN you eat those bananas, dont go spreading that myth. It only matter how many nanas you eat. You can eat them at 4AM if you'd like

:)
Later bitches.
