Comment on Why very high fruit diets are a *disaster* for most of us by Naomi Most.

Thank you for writing this article.

I gave the 80-10-10 thing a fair chance a few years ago. I never gave up eating a raw egg yolk or a few bites of salmon here and there (not wanting to take B12 supplements), but by weight, volume, and calories I was getting the vast majority of my “nutrition” from fruit.

I felt very much how you did during those 6 months: spacey, hungry a lot, wanting to believe it was all “detox” and that things would resolve over time.

At the end of my experiment I was skinny-fat (30% body fat at 135 lbs, putting me in a squishy size 10 — which is what I weigh NOW at 20% body fat and size 6 jeans), and no closer to transcendental levels of health than when I started.

I gave up going to raw food potlucks because I was tired of hanging out with tired spacey people with hardly anything to talk about other than food, seemingly going to these gatherings to help re-brainwash each other to ignore the signals they were getting from their bodies that eating tons of (bioengineered, non-evolutionarily-natural) fruit was the wrong idea entirely.
