As people try to eat less meat and animal products, we witness new diet trends more often than ever. One of the latest popular topics is the fruitarian diet. It all started back in 2013 when Ashton Kutcher practiced it to lose weight in order to play Steve Jobs in a movie.
It’s been 7 years since then, and the popularity of raw food diets is only rising. The fruitarian diet can be described as a raw vegan way of eating that is mostly based on fruits.
What Can You Eat?
This diet is predominantly based on fruit. Your nutritionist will help you figure out what kinds of fruits to have, in order to include healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants. Another group of food you’re allowed to have is nuts and seeds, but in smaller portions. Some fruitarians also include vegetables as a part of their daily nutrition.
Following this diet is not the best idea to do in the long term. Always consult with a professional before deciding to change your eating habits. The thing about fruitarians is that they do not get all the necessary nutrients a body needs just from fruit and it’s definitely not meant for everyone.
