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.

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.

You must have read that an apple a day, keeps the doctor away so fruits play a very important role in our lives. I also eat fruits daily but I am not a complete fruit diet. I have proteins and carbs but that too in the first half of the day.

It is recommended to consume 2 cups of fruits per day. So I take fresh fruits or frozen without added sweeteners. Fruits are naturally low in fat, sodium, and calories, and rich in potassium, fiber & vitamin C. I like to eat peaches, cantaloupe, oranges and bananas. The fiber in fruit helps to protect against heart disease and lower cholesterol. Vitamin C keeps gums healthy so choosing different fruits during the day is a very healthy thing I think. It has helped me manage my weight as well.

It improves overall health so the sense of smell must have been improved as well. I never noticed this but even I can relate now.

Dear friends,

My name is Cèdre Verdoyant and I'm an ethical fruitarian. I only eat fruits in the botanical sense of the term (so I do not eat seeds, cereals, or greens). I believe that like us, plants have feelings and emotions. They are our sisters and brothers. When we eat their leaves, stems, roots, or seeds, we harm them. On the contrary, when we eat their fruits and disperse their seeds away, we fulfil their wishes.

If you want to deepen your understanding of ethical fruitarianism, I strongly recommend visiting my website:

With all my friendship,
Cèdre Verdoyant

Please delete and ban this person. Their posted website claims that it is unhealthy and unethical to eat beans, lentils, grains, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. They claim that a fruit-only diet is adequate and healthy.

Yes. For years I've had this issue. I can no longer go to the gym or anywhere enclosed without gaggling so what I do now is I put essential oils on my mask and I no longer smell this.
