    Fruit eaters

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    As in people that only eat fruit...I kind of want to try it as like an experiment; why is this a bad idea?
    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    Jack london, "Before Adam"

    The poops?

    I dunno, give it a shot. But I wouldn't do it more than a few days, frankly.

    Why not give it a whirl and report back?

    Fruit eaters

    For a while? Not bad. Increases insulin sensitivity. I do all fruit days a few times a month. I suggest you read up on it on 30bananasaday for tips on doing it right. Also if you are low carb usually you will feel like shit because you aren't used to handling that much carbs (insulin resistance). Eat whole fruits most of the time and eat a LOT (3000+ cals recommended for guys).

    For long term? You will not get adequate nutrients because...

    Fat soluble vitamins aren't readily absorbed absent adequate fat.

    Minerals in plant forms aren't as readily transported into the blood stream as animal form minerals (different oxidation states+ different carrier proteins result in inadequate transport across the membrane as Transporters are conformation specific).

    Not all essential nutrients can be found in fruits.

    So much fiber blocks efficient absorption of nutrients.

    Are you Caucasian?

    You aren't going to find much fruit in ice age Europe, which is where we spent the last 50K years.

    It is potentially bad because of the lack of adaptation to that dose of sugar long-term.

    Diabetes? Saturated fat deficiency? Malnutrition? Try it if you want, but damn this lamb chop is delicious! Is red wine a fruit?

    I actually found reading Graham's 801010 book very helpful as opposed to, say, 30bad (though I've cruised there, too).

    The book really goes over the ideas. Yes, it relies on things that I wouldn't (i.e., china study), but by the same token, there's a lot of other interesting information in there about protein needs and various what nots and wherefores.

    Your body can generate its own saturated fat (or else you would never get body fat). Try again.

    Thanks for this link!! I need to read this.

    30bad gives a quick and dirty bulletpoint list which i find helpful for those who just wants to try fruitarianism for a few days.
