I'm a mostly raw foods vegan who eats cooked food for the shits and giggles. I eat upwards of 6 pounds of fruit a day, 1 lb of leafy greens +whatever other veggies, and a handful of nuts and seeds.

2 pounds of ripe persimmons is probably the most satisfying meal I've ever had.

For cooked food anything curry related or french fries with probably too much ketchup.


Eating fruit gives me more energy than meat, because fruit sugars are the easiest for the human body to break down, absorb, and use. It's basically instant energy as your saliva contains digestive enzymes meant for fruits and raw foods. Physically, I can workout longer and lift more weight then I ever could drinking protein shakes and eating meat.

The only major downside is I can't really drink or use drugs as their effect is much more substantial and hard on my body. And I use to be a heavy smoker (of the two more socially acceptable smokables). One shot will basically get me significantly tipsy. Two and I'll start losing significant motor coordination. 3 and I'm drunk and will have a hangover. On the upside, I save a lot of money drinking so I can buy more fruit.

Protein is protein mate , and speaking of protein I am not seeing a whole lot of it in your fruit and leafy green diet. There are vegan protein sources so what gives? Protein is a necessary building block for dense muscle, the kind any fighter, soldier, and any physical hands on type works needs .

I thought about it, then I was told I couldn't eat sushi either so I changed my mind...

I guess you missed the part where I lifted more weight than any time before? All foods have a combination of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. The body is actually amazingly efficient and reuses a majority of the protein that is broken down through exercise. There is also the question of whether the protein in cooked foods is usable, as macronutrients (carbs, proteins, fats) that are heated tend to fuse and form molecules that either take more energy to break down or are excreted from the body as waste. A lb of varied raw leafy greens (and everything else consumed) has plenty of additional protein to supplement your body with as almost all of it is usable. I built more muscle than I ever did before switching lifestyles so I guess my life proves you and the common understanding of nutrition incorrect.

What your muscles need to actually do work are carbohydrates (which are also available in high protein food sources like meats) so giving them in high quanities (fruit) that which they actually use to create ATP allows me to sustain myself through intense martial arts training and whatever other form of exercise I feel like that day.

About 67% of a gorilla's diet is fruit, 17% is leaves, seeds and stems and 3% is termites and caterpillars. (according to seaworld.org) I'm not going to start eating bugs and though I've entertained the idea, green smoothies sound much more appetizing.

I am not sure whether to comment on your lack of basic chemistry knowledge or the fact you're failing to recognise humans are biologically hardwired to be an omnivorous species. Not that I have any issue with a vegan diet other then it's blandness but you can't sit there and pretend to ignore the fact the human digestive tract is designed to handle both carnivorous and herbivorous sources of food.

Also comparing your current result to your past results is lazy work out ethic. You compare your current results to the top tier results of people in your height, weight, and age range to truly see if there is any merit in both your diet and work out routine.

Please elaborate on the basic chemistry knowledge I am lacking.

I never made any claim as to the biological hardwiring of the human GI tract.

Raw foods (especially fruit) are far from bland. That is only your perception. Also, a standard vegan diet would still include spices and all the trappings of a standard American diet (in forms without dairy or meat based products)

I never pretended to ignore any facts about how our GI tract can handle both carnivorous and herbivorous sources of food. Truly, nature is amazingly adaptable.

There are enough top tier vegan raw foodist athletes (even body builders) that support the merit of my diet. The fact that you're ignoring is that on that diet I still managed to build muscle and lift more weight, sustain longer workouts, etc. so how could I be lacking in protein?

I don't eat vegetables and very few fruits due to sensory issues.

so i couldn't do it i would end up starving myself.

When water tasted bad i refused to drink it even if i was dehydrated and sick from being dehydrated ...parents and teachers logic was if i got thirsty i would drink...same idea they use with food.

For me however that is not true even if i'm about to die there are certain foods i will not eat same with liquids that taste or smell foul.

I only survived two years of that mostly being dehydrated due to cordial (sugared water) as my only source of water i would drink.


i have always been way to sensetive to smell and taste and touch i can't wear certain materials and where most people when wearing clothes stop feeling them after a while i feel clothes on me 24/7 my senses are high and that's not always good.

I was for a few months until I started eating fish again. I feel really guilty about it but I need that omega-3 in my body. I think I'm gonna stop and go back to being a vegan though, I don't feel right, I'll just buy supplements instead.

You know if you buy a PAX you can vape your weed and it's much better for your health. Plus you save A LOT of weed because vaping is really efficient. (I'm assuming that's what you meant by heavy smoker, if I'm wrong and you meant ciggs sorry I apologize)

I've been a meat eater for as long as I've existed, had bacon every weekend. And tbh I loved it, meat is great. But recently just for the sake of trying it I've gone vegetarian for the past 2 months. And really am enjoying it, not really had any meat urges and it has made meals relatively cheap.

Also discovered figs are actually a fruit, always thought a fig was like a asparagus sprout or something. But now I've actually seen one and discovered as a result I have a fig tree.

I'd give you an idea of some recipes but to be honest, at this moment in time I don't have a favorite dish I've eaten a different dish every day for the past two months and still have loads of recipes to go through, i'm noting down ones me and my girlfriend like and will just plan to repeat them once we run out of ideas.

Then will probably go back to meat, but with a good idea of what to do for veggy sides.
