My diet has been free of the multi-vit this week - was really unnecessary - and also free of nuts and dried fruits: all I want is fresh, juicy fruits!

Awesome. What do you plan on doing after that with the summer? Eating and training?

Just bodyweight and DB exercises today, full body - DB squats, shoulder presses, press-ups, really strict form, feeling good.

Just enjoying getting back into eating as often as I need, without exams getting in the way - I did my best to get in enough food during the exams but with two 3-hour sessions some days it was a challenge.

Have been eating a wide range of fruits - watermelon is back in season and I'm loving it.

It's going to be a legendary summer.

I've lost a little bit of mass, lost a lot of water weight - my whole body, skin tone has changed - I feel extremely different to two months ago. I even feel different to last summer when I was on 100% fruit - stronger, and more focused - probably because last summer I was in Paris and rushing around on the subway every day and walking to different buildings for my language classes.

Here are some photos - my core is still strong - not totally ripped, as I've been consuming large quantities in single sittings, but I'll be able to divide my calories up into several meals now.

Anyway, just a few shots I took just now, just with webcam, but I'm going to be deadlifting, bench pressing, and BB squatting this week, and next week I'm going to be leaving college and going back home, where I'll be training with my cousin, and we'll take some good quality photos.

The strength is what I train for - the aesthetics are really a bonus. I actually have mixed feelings about photos in general. But anyway, here are these shots:

So there you go. Proving, like Bigbwii that raw fruit is the way to go. Truly rejuvenating. When I was still on cooked food my face was puffed up, sinuses swollen - not as bad as when I still had dairy in my diet but still not as good as on 100% fruit.

Speaking of abs, Eric Carlson was vegan but he's putting whey protein in his shakes now. I reckon he could get the same results without the whey and any other supplements but still he's pretty cool:

Peace out. I am chilled - resting heart rate lower than when I was on cooked food too.

Sounds good dude :D
Isn't it wonderful here in Europe now that we get our own produce instead of it coming from South Africa, India, Chile and other places far, far away (well, except for the tropical fruits). One can really feel the difference! And you know it's summer when the peaches and watermelons arrives from Spain :D

My diet is much like yours right now Gorilla, just eating a ton of different types of fruit, but do sprouts count as "fruit"? I thought the definition was anything that doesn't kill the plant. That's the case with sprouts of beans...

Beans count, but I don't think he's eating sprouts.

In Natural Hygiene a small amount of sprouts is accepted but raw fruits should be the biggest part of the diet. Maybe just try to eat some raw beans and then decide for yourself if they should be part of your diet... :wink:

Great - I don't personally eat sprouted seeds, but you have to find what works for you ...
