I came from a poor family from south east London, England so cheap junk food and cheap meat was a way of life, I was brought up a meat/junk food eater up until my mid twenties. Up until then I had lived to eat, infact food was a great comfort to me and I used it to deal with the stresses in my life! I ate anything and everything I could, no matter what the ingredients. The only thing I didn't like was seafood! Absolutely no thought what so ever of health or nutrition went into my eating habits. It simply felt so good to eat cooked food that I just assumed that if it wasn't safe It wouldn't be sold in the stores. As the years went by, I got the regular colds and flu's that everyone else was getting but one day for some reason it stopped being normal to me and I began asking myself why I felt it was normal to get sick. I also started to get more sensitive, I felt bloated, blocked up, full of mucus and constipated! then I realised I'd always felt like this but for some reason I was only just starting to notice it.<br><br><br><br>
Eventually it reached the point where I couldn't eat anymore cooked food. The more I ate the more bloated I felt and I could hardly breath because of the mucus build up. So that summer I stopped eating altogether and for some reason I wanting fruit and nothing else, I had NEVER been attracted to fruits before... I started with mangos, melons and grapes, I was in HEAVEN! it felt so good that I wished I could eat 100% fruits all the time. I did some research and found out about the Fruitarian Lifestyle and as they say "the rest is history" I dived straight into Fruitarianism, I was totally happy just eating fruits and felt as natural as I could be but I made the mistake of straying from my natural instincts and introducing greens, water, nuts and seeds into my diet because of the fear of others and that just made me feel terrible!!!!<br><br><br><br>
Just eating fruits was what I thrived on. When I started there was no one willing to listen to some guy that wanted to eat just fruits because to everyone that was impossible and was just asking for health problems, I stuck to my guns because I felt best on just fruits and I couldn't understand why no one would hear me out!!!! I came up against much resistance and basically had to go it alone from the start all the way up to now!!!....I basically used myself to learn all I could about Fruitarianism, I've taken many photo's of my many transformations and changes and have experimented with many cleanses. It's taken me 11 years to reach this point and if you would have told me it would of taken so long I would never of bothered but that's how long it took and here I am.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
I'm very much ino fitness and being active and I love intense compound exercises/workouts!!! I do Calisthenics/bodywieght exercises and I strive for progression so every workout should be harder than the last one. My workout mantra is "ain't nuttun to it...but to do it!" My goal is to gain functional strength and muscle while living a healthy Fruitarian lifestyle.<br><br><br><br>
I've always wanted the Tyson Beckford body but believe it or not I have never come anywhere near until I went fruitarian.<br><br><br><br>
I've gone from this....<br><br><br><br><a href="http://img57.imageshack.us/my.php?image=ava55170gr.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://img57.imageshack.us/img57/5346/ava55170gr.th.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br><br><br><br>

I've done pretty well considering everyone said I couldn't survive 2 months on a diet of just fruits.
