FREE EBOOKLET We often hear that a good balanced diet should include as wide a variety of foods as possible to ensure nutrient sufficiency. What about the fruitarian diet then?
Can a diet of only one single food group support human health? Does fruit contain everything we need? How can it?
Fruit is the natural food for humans, it is what “we” ate for millions of years during our evolution, it’s the only thing we can eat as is, as it appears in nature, raw, whole and without condiments to mask the taste. Fruit is fast food! Fruit is human food!
Nutritionally, fruit is complete. Contrary to popular belief, fruit actually contains all essential dietary nutrients for optimal human health! That’s right! There’s protein in fruit! There’s essential fatty acids like Omega 3 and Omega 6 in fruit. There’s plenty of calcium, iron, magnesium and Vitamin A (betacarotene). All the vitamins and minerals are there in ideal ratios. There’s also water and fiber of course, important nutrients indeed.
As long as one consumes enough total calories, from fruit alone, one gets enough of all the various nutrients needed. Theoretically speaking! There’s of course the possibility that a particular piece of fruit, or batch of fruits, did not grow in ideal conditions and therefore it is indeed a good idea to “spread our bets” by consuming a wide variety of fruits, over the course of a year.
Seasonal eating is the best. Fresh, ripe, raw foods are what nature intended for us to eat! The raw food diet is the default in nature. Eating according to our biological design as frugivores – a raw vegan diet in other words – will always yield the best results!
Drinking cow’s breastmilk or eating the dead meat of other animals – now that’s what I call extreme! A varied fruitarian diet is in fact the most conservative choice there is – conserving our health, the planet and the animals all at the same time!
