All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

If you like to establish new eating habits, give yourself time. Habits take to form anywhere from 18 days up to 254 days. Missing a single day did not reduce the chance of forming a habit. 

Missing one opportunity to perform the behaviour did not materially affect the habit formation process. 

Thich Nhat Hanh

If we stop consuming, they will stop producing.

All Essential Amino Acids

An essential amino acid, or indispensable amino acid, is an amino acid that cannot be synthesized by the organism, and must be supplied in diet. 

The 9 amino acids humans cannot synthesize (F V T W M L I K H):

  • phenylalanine
  • valine
  • threonine
  • tryptophan
  • methionine
  • leucine
  • isoleucine
  • lysine
  • histidine

Animal and plant proteins are made up of about 20 common amino acids.

Synthesis of 6 other amino acids - conditionally essential - can be limited under special conditions (R C G Q P Y)arginine, cysteine, glycine, glutamine, proline, and tyrosine.

Dispensable amino acids can be synthesized in the human body, 5 (A D N E S): alanine, aspartic acid, asparagine, glutamic acid and serine .
