Comment on Why very high fruit diets are a *disaster* for most of us by Marisa.
As someone with a very strong sweet tooth, very small body (4’10”), and an extremely slow metabolism who doesn’t require a lot of food to begin with, having 2 out of 3 meals a day consist all or mostly of fruit is just fine for me. And when I say meal I mean I can have a banana and a glass or two of water for breakfast and last until lunch. I can be satisfied from one orange or a few slices of melon and a glass of berry juice (I don’t like the consistency while chewing berries, but I like their flavor). I’m not trying to starve myself, that really is all it takes for me feel satisfied and function. And if I eat something else, I’ll end up having a piece of cake or cookies to satisfy my sugar craving.
The rest of my family is a completely different story. They’re all much bigger than me and require a lot more food just to feel satisfied. They would never be able to survive off of what I eat.
