    There are some raw vegan groups in the 'groups' section of the forums I think. Might be the best place to find some of your fellows.

    How does one be a fruitarian? I know my daughter was one for a long time and still prefers fruit over any food. How do you balance or get in protein?

    if you are going to cut out entire food groups from your life forever, make sure you take a daily multi-vitamin (at least).
    vegetarians can fall short in b vitamins and d

    Although vegetarians or vegans may benefit from individual supplements (depending on what they eat, including fortified foods), a multi-vitamin is unnecessary. B12 is the only vitamin that isn't found in a plant-based diet -- if one doesn't eat fortified foods, you can buy a B12 supplement quite easily.

    I eat found that a lot of people don't consider fruit. Like tomatoes. I also eat flowers artichokes. It's about amino acids. All fruits and veggies and flowers contain aminos

    Being a Fruitarian isn't healthy. Being a vegan or vegetarian can be, if it's done right. Fruitarian is an unhealthy diet, though. You go that route and you'll end up in the hospital one day.

    They eat nothing but fruit. They don't have a balanced - or healthy - diet.

    I've been a fruitarian for 2 years. Raw vegan since 2012 and vegan since 2008 And I'm healthy. I see my doctor yearly for check ups and I'm good.

    Some people think that may have caused, or made worse, Steve Job's cancer.

    there is a website devoted to former raw vegans/fruitarians called beyondveg.com. lots of personal stories of people who decided to stick with vegetarianism, but found they had serious health problems sticking with a fruity diet long term.

    however, others seem to do well on it, outside of some issues with their teeth.
