All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

Here are two examples of two random satisfying days of vegan fruitarian food for one female and one male persons.

How is your "perfect" day of food looks like? 

Yesterday was one of mine (Fruitarian Lena):

  • two glasses of freshly made organic orange juice,
  • a great smoothie with strawberries, purple grapes, bananas and oranges,
  • ~50 g of organic raw zucchini chips (with sesame and sunflower seeds),
  • a few dehydrated tomatoes,
  • tried 4-5 pea sprouts for the first time,
  • a big bowl of organic blueberries and blackberries,
  • a pound pack (1/2 kg) of very ripe dark red organic strawberries!

A response from a guy: 

I started with a smoothie today for breakfast (coconut water, 2 bananas, flax seeds, 3 cups of frozen berries/peaches) and a kg of strawberries.

My lunch was a salad 2 yellow bell peppers, 1/2 kg of tomatoes, 1/4 kg cucumbers, 2 small lemons for juice, with blended flax, sesame, and sunflower seeds and dried mint, cumin etc...

Then for dinner I had a handful of peanuts, another kg of strawberries, and juiced 1.5 kgs of carrots, 1 lemon and 2 apples.

Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to a man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not to die, so do other creatures.

Body Weight, Obesity, and BMI

Body weight - person's mass or weight. Body weight is measured in kilograms, pounds, or stones and pounds. Body weight is the measurement of weight without items located on the person

Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have a negative effect on health.

People are generally considered obese when their body mass index (BMI) is over 30 kg/m2, with the range 25–30 kg/m2 - overweight. 

BMI, body mass index - a measurement obtained by dividing a person's weight by the square of the person's height. 

Obesity increases the likelihood of diseases, particularly heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, certain types of cancer, and osteoarthritis.

Obesity is most commonly caused by a combination of excessive food intake, low levels of physical activity, and genetic susceptibility. A few cases are caused primarily by genes, endocrine disorders, medications, or mental illness. Evidence to support the view that obese people eat little yet gain weight due to a slow metabolism is not generally supported.

On average, obese people have a greater energy expenditure than their thin counterparts due to the energy required to maintain an increased body mass.
