All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

Fruitarian Philosophy

Fruitarian philosophy - system of fruitarian philosophical thought, the theoretical basis of fruitarianism, rational arguments for and against it, general presentation and definitions.

  • Defining Fruitarianism

    I was adjusting my definition of fruitarianism for 20 years, periodically changing it after reflecting on what I learned and experienced. You can read it on the top of the page, and the current version is this: 

    Fruitarianism - a quest for optimal ethical ways to live and diets based on fruits and seeds. 

    This is the line I just attempted to add to the definition of fruitarianism on the Wikipedia page
    "Fruitarianism can also be viewed as a set of ethical values, including respecting lives of plants, and their implementation in lifestyle." But I could not find eligible resources to cite.

    Wiki is the most popular resource online, and the article dedicated to fruitarianism requires some explanation for most people who are new to the term. In this article, I will also give my personal perspective of a practicing skeptic fruitarian.

  • My Fruitarian Story

    This is me.

    Hi, my real name is Lena, I founded this site Fruitarians.net in 2010 as an international fruitarian community. 

    Fruitarianism for me is a quest for optimal ethical ways to live and for all good diets based on fruits and seeds.  

    I am a long term vegan-fruitarian, who radically changed her lifestyle as a teenager, at 18, and maintained and adjusted it during two following decades. I doubted fruitarianism, but my fruitarian position remains surprisingly strong. This a very short version of my fruitarian story.
