Fruitarian?

Anybody else a fruitarian?

I’m trying to eat mostly fruitarian mainly out of curiosity. I know we are supposed to be biological frugavores. I don’t eat 100% fruit because it’s too hard to eat enough so I eat cooked sweet potatoes as well.

But one big difference I am noticing is smell. My sense of smell has increased dramatically. It’s crazy. I can not tolerate the smell of meat eaters anymore. They stink!!! It’s got the point where I can tell my son ate meat at his dads because he reeks when he comes home. It’s a smell that seems acidic, or something. Just nasty. And everybody smells this way, except other vegans. Anybody have this same experience?

I'm not fruitarian, although most of my foods other than leafy vegetables, oniony/garlicky vegetables, and potatoes are technically fruits.

We have/had a few fruitarian members here.

Peasant (1963-1972) and Fluffy (1970s?-1982- I think of you as 'Ambrose' now)- Your spirits outshone some humans I have known. Be happy forever.

I wanted to post an update. I didn’t manage even a week on the fruitarian diet. One morning after eating a breakfast of mangos I got a terrible stomach ache and threw up. After that I gave up fruitarian and went back to my standard starch based diet.

I'm not completely fruitarian but I'm vegan. I love to put lots of veggies in my meals. I never tried a whole day only eating fruits. As I heard a few times that overeating of fruit is not much healthy. Fruits are the best source of nutrition, as I know overnutrition can lead to a negative effect.

But I eat fruits as my breakfast and make smoothies for me and kids as well. It's healthy and keeps energetic all day.
