Why Doesn't Fruitarianism (With Soft Tender Leaves) Not Work?
« on: January 25, 2022, 10:44:41 am »
So I recently did 9 days of raw fruitariansm. Basically it consisted of papaya, pineapple, mangoes, watermelon, cucumbers, tomatoes, avocado and about 3-4 leaves of lettuce per day. I also added in barely any nuts. This was right after completing a 26 day water fast, so I figured that my gut was quite clean.

To be honest, I was feeling quite incredible. However, I noticed that my tendon injury in my shoulder wasn't really improving. Then I added in a tiny amount of raw meat one day, and noticed that my injury was "craving" the necessary protein.

So I started to slowly add in more meat, and I'm probably getting about 70% of my diet to raw carnivore (I make sure that about 65% of this is fat and 35% of this is protein, a mix of muscle and raw organs, mostly beef). Other things in my diet include fruit still, I added in some kefir lately, raw butter and raw cow/goat milk.

I've been on this new trend for about 10 days, but the clarity of my mind slowly descended as soon as I added in raw meat. I have to admit, it hasn't been a straight line, as I was trying to figure out the protein to fat ratio.

But since I felt so good on a fruitarian diet mentally, and my body felt clean and energetic, why wouldn't that be the optimal diet for the human body? I could've kept going on it, and honestly I would have kept going had it not been for my injury. I had lots of energy.

Does anyone have experience being on a fruitarian diet (similar to the food items that I mentioned above) and eventually burning out of it due to lack of energy? I'd rather save myself the time by trying it and by hearing stories/anecdotes. I still think fruit is important, but maybe that meat is also necessary... for the first time in 18 months I finally feel like my shoulder injury is healing, and that only usually happens after a water fast. But this time, the healing is taking basis almost daily, and that's after I started adding in lots of meat.

Any response, appreciated, thank you!
