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.
