Say What?: The "Coo Coo" Diet

I am always fascinated by people who take nutrition to an extreme, ultimately putting their health at risk.

And so I present to you: fruitarians (exhibit A and exhibit B.)

That’s right — these people advocate eating nothing but fruit for optimal health.

(Insert “Twilight Zone” theme song HERE.)

It’s worth pointing out that this includes “avocado, cucumbers, tomatoes, paprika, olives and squash.”

Although some fruitarians start out eating nuts and seeds, the goal is to eventually cut those out as well.

Right, because nuts and seeds are behind all our health problems. UGH.

Despite clearly lacking a multitude of nutrients (Omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, calcium, and vitamin D, among others,) this movement has devout followers.

When it comes to dangerous diets such as fruitarianism, I leave political correctness at the door.

I am not going to sit here and say it’s just a “different” diet that needs to be “carefully planned.”

No. It’s unhealthy, unbalanced, and as far as I’m concerned, an eating disorder disguised as a “natural” way to eat.

    You know that some fruitarians will only eat teh fruit that has naturally fallen from the tree?

    I agree. This is a way for people to try and exercise control but is ultimately damaging.

    i’m wondering what you think of raw vegan diets then? they do contain protein, fats and starches as well. i suppose b12 can be supplemented.

    To eat only fruits is exactly as healthy as to only eat ice-cream. reading all those think I´m really wondering how crazy people.
