Avocado and cucumber are sometimes known as fruit-vegetables - they are in the fruit family. And nuts and seeds are in the fruit family too, so it's very easy to consume enough calories.
I cycle the fruits I eat, but to give you an example, this is a typical daily menu:
1 cucumber, grated
75 g brazil nuts
75g cashew nuts
1/2 cantaloupe melon
I interchange oranges with grapefruits, blueberries with pomegranate, peaches with nectarines, etc. etc. - basically a week's menu will incorporate most of the things in the list on my bodyspace.
Good morning Gorilla,
Thanks for sharing this. I have been vegan for nearly 1 year and eat quite of bit of salads and fruits. But I also eat cooked food. I am not the type to count calries, do you? If so, how many calories do you eat daily? I am just a bit afraid to tackle an all out fruitarian diet with thefear to lost weight. I would most likely eat salds too because I love them. I am seeing your physique, you are in great shape. I've spoken to my girlfriend about this and, it's a tough call.I get awfully hungry after training, tennis or running. And I don't know whether just fruits would be satiating.
Thanks again--Take Care. We'll chat again.
