Hi. I am not new to this forum but left for quite awhile. Long story short, I am trying to become fruitarian. Taking it one day at a time. At any rate, I am vegan right now. How many true fruitarians are there on here? Its hard to find sites that are vegan that don't FREAK out over an all fruit diet. SHEESH.

Is Richard Blackman still around?
Am I allowed to mention other forums on here?

It's not the diet that's the problem, it's the 'religion'...

Thanks for the info. I wondered whatever happened to him.

Did good yesterday with all fruit except for two little squares of chocolate. Can't wait for summer with fresh fruits.

Keep it up - keep up the strength and the resistance!

if it's true - i think there is some truth in it, such as the fact that he doesn't eat cooked food ...

Still trying. I backslid for a few days but I am back trying again. I ate all raw yesterday and feel much better. I have been re-reading Arnold Ehrets books and they help me the most. I am eating some days raw and some days at 80% raw.

As for Richard Blackman, to each his own. If it works for him and others, have at it. I have enough trouble watching how I eat much less judging how others live their lives!!

You have an amazing physique Gorilla! Did you build it on a vegan diet?

Thanks! My physique in these pics
Image
Image
was the result of 11 months (Jan to Nov 2005) intensive weight-lifting with a former commonwealth weightlifter and rowing training with an Oxford college rowing squad. From my birth in Sep 1984 to Dec 1991 I was omnivorous, from Dec 1991 to Dec 2000 I excluded meat but included fish, from Dec 2000 I was fully meat-free but include eggs and dairy, then just before I joined this forum in October 2005 I excluded all animal products.
Leading up to these pics
Image
Image
Image
Image
I still included a lot of cooked food (pasta mainly).
And these pics taken in Sep 2007
Image
Image
Image
reflect my body and mind after three months on a raw fruitarian diet and increasingly raw prior to that. From Sep 2007 to June 2008 I consumed mainly raw juice and some whole fruit and since June 2008 my diet has been vegan, back on cooked foods and not training as much.

...supplements:
Jan - Oct 2005
MaxiMuscle Viper, Promax, Progain, Cyclone; vitamin B-complex liquid (with 120000% RDA B12 per 1ml) made by Holland&Barrett, various multivitamin tablets
Oct 2005 - Sep 2006
Supplement-free apart from vitamin-enriched fruit juices. During that time I was on my 3rd year abroad of my 4-year degree course in French and German and was training regularly.
Back in Oxford in Sep 2006 I picked up a copy of Flex magazine and am convinced that I was brain-washed as I then started buying supplements ... which I couldn't actually afford - and buying large amounts of food which I couldn't afford. So that led to the money-stress I mentioned.
The supplements I took leading up to being the biggest I've ever beeen in January 2007
Image
Image
(lots of heavy deadlifting)
included:
Creatine ethyl ester
BSN Nitrix
BSN NO Explode
6-OXO
and various testosterone boosters
to the point where I found myself searching for anabolic steroids on the web.
But in summer 2007 my diet was really clean - fruitarian - and I was training regularly again. After Sep 2007 I didn't find time to train in the gym regularly but kept up with yoga and bodyweight exercises. My gym training since Sep 2007 hasn't been as consistent ...
