Frequently Asked Questions

About Fruitarians

Q. What is a Fruitarian?

A. A fruitarian eats only Fruit, Nuts (not peanuts), Berries and Melons - NOTHING ELSE. No grain products, no vegetables, no dairy, processed sugar products, no meat nor fish. Drinks only freshly juiced fruit juice and clean water.

Q. Why?

A. Human beings are alkaline mammals, one of the few on the planet, therefore they should eat only alkaline foods. The body readily and efficiently utilises the nutrients from alkaline foods. Acid foods have to be converted to starches, proteins etc before being utilised and large quantities of waste is produced as a byproduct of the processes. The waste produced from an average persons diet is greater than the bodies ability to dispose of it. So the waste is stored, on the hips, around the waist, in the joints, just about anywhere and everywhere. These waste deposits are the breeding grounds of all manner of diseases in much the same way as your local rubbish tip is anything but an healthy environment.

An alkaline diet produces very little waste so the body not burdened with fresh waste intake, is not only able but also eager to eliminate waste stored from years past.

Q. Are fruitarians healthier than average?

A. Vastly so. After only 3 months on the fruitarian diet, the health improvement is quite apparent. After 12 months coughs, colds, flu, aches and pains all become a thing of the past or at least spectacularly diminished. Results will vary greatly depending on how much the participant has already been overcome by waste.

Q. Citrus is an acid fruit, shouldn't they be excluded?

A. It is well known that there is good fruit, ordinary fruit and inedible fruit. Fruitarians MUST eat only the best fruit, they have to get ALL their nutrients from it. The best fruit comes from well cared for healthy trees picked from the tree when ripe and ready to eat. Picking fruit green, gassing, drying or otherwise ripening it artificially is not food that a fruitarian can exist on.

Plant two trees, one in an area partly shaded, the other in full sun. The one in full sun will outgrow the other, have more fruit and have better fruit. Sunlight is an essential part not only of the growing process but also the ripening process. Fruit reaches its zenith of nutrients if allowed to ripen full term in sunlight on the tree.

Back to the citrus, if the tree is nurtured properly and the fruit allowed to ripen on the tree, the fruit will be alkaline. It does contain some citric acid but this WILL NOT leave acid residue in the body. The insects that normally sting citrus fruit may continue to do so but when the egg, expecting an acid environment, is laid in the fruit and confronted with alkalinity it dies or fails to hatch.

Q. How difficult is it to be a fruitarian?

A. Extremely difficult. It is an all or nothing regime. If one lived on fruit and nuts all week and has a 'special treat' on Sunday of cheese on toast, the first part of the week counts for nothing. The toast and cheese has undone all the progress and will negate the next two weeks progress as well. The memory has a phenomenal ability to tempt one's tastebuds with the acid foods one used to enjoy so much.

Q. Vegetarians need vitamin B suppliments, wouldn't fruitarians need them too?

A. When on a strict fruitarian diet with a supply of near perfect fruit, NO. Under these conditions the body generates it's own B vitamins in the lower colon. However, the eating of not fully ripened fruit will cause vitamin B production to cease for up to two weeks. Eating a packet of hot chips will stop it for much longer.

Q. Are Fruitarian Foods a beneficial addition to the average diet.

A. Definitely. One does not have to be a fruitarian to appreciate the taste, flavour and the nutrition of really good fruit that a fruitarian's survival depends upon.
