Fruitarian Diet Pros and Precautions

While many people have heard the term “vegetarian” for years, and most are familiar with “vegan” lifestyles, there are many who had never heard about the “fruitarian” lifestyle, until they heard a reference to it in “Notting Hill,” a romantic comedy movie. While not well known, and even made slight fun of in the movie, there actually is a group of people who are adherents to the fruitarian diet.

The main premise, when following this form of a raw vegan diet, has to do with a person limiting him or herself to only eating fruits, some varieties of seeds, and a limited selection of vegetables. Of course, much of the food selection that a fruitarian chooses for this living raw lifestyle depends on how strictly they choose to follow this diet.

While there are a number of advocates of the living raw lifestyle who claim that a fruitarian diet is healthy and safe, there are also many doctors and nutritionists who strongly disagree.
