Comment on Why very high fruit diets are a *disaster* for most of us by Esmée La Fleur.

It is not “sugar” in general that is the problem; rather, it is fructose specifically. Glucose is actually not much of a problem. All table sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and most fruits are 50% glucose and 50% fructose. Too much fructose from any source is not healthy over the long term. See Dr. Robert Lustig’s excellent lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” here: http://youtu.be/dBnniua6-oM. It is 1.5 hours long, but one of the most important videos I have ever watched. I tried a fruit-based diet for 2 years and it was a disaster indeed. Lustig says he is not worried about people eating fruit, but of course he doesn’t know anything about the raw vegan fruit-based diet that many are now trying. I doubt he would encourage anyone to eat 30 Bananas a Day, lol…
