A Backstory of Change and Curiosity

Before we embark on this fruity adventure, let me provide a little context. A few years back, I battled cervical cancer and underwent a hysterectomy, which thrust me into early menopause. To manage this, I decided not to opt for traditional hormone replacements. But let me tell you, adapting to these changes was tough. From disrupted sleep to changes in my physical appearance, everything felt like a rollercoaster ride.

Discovering a Detox Solution

In the midst of my emotional rollercoaster, I reached out to my ever-wise mom for help. She introduced me to a detox program she was trying out. Now, before you get skeptical, let me assure you that this is not a sponsored program. It’s a kit of tinctures designed to support various bodily functions.

The Fruitatarian Twist

As I delved into researching this detox program, I stumbled upon something intriguing. The program’s creator, Dr. Morse, recommended following a raw fruit diet alongside the tincture regimen. This piqued my curiosity. I had never heard of fruitarianism before! The idea of solely eating fruit sounded a little outlandish, but I was willing to try anything to feel better.

Embracing the Fruitarian Lifestyle

Two weeks before starting the detox, I made a radical change and began eating raw fruits. I went cold turkey, replacing my typical steak dinner with a plateful of 4,000 strawberries. To maximize the detox’s effectiveness, Dr. Morse suggested sticking to the fruitarian diet and finding relaxation during this period.

The Ups and Downs of Fruitarianism

Let’s get real for a moment. Being a fruitarian for 90 days was no walk in the park. Here’s a breakdown of the pros and cons I experienced:

Pros:

  1. Radiant Skin: One major benefit I noticed was my skin’s transformation. It became glossy, youthful, and free from acne. Mangoes, pineapples, coconuts, and dragon fruit became my best friends during this period.

  2. Break from Cooking: Not having to cook elaborate meals was a refreshing change of pace. Just chopping up some fresh fruit saved me time and energy.

  3. Reduced Sugar Cravings: The fruitarian diet helped me curb my cravings for processed sugars. By indulging in natural sugars, I found myself less drawn to cakes and cookies.

Cons:

  1. Physical Challenges: Working out became exceptionally challenging during my fruitarian phase. I felt weaker and slower, having to lower my weights and adjust my exercise routine. Detoxing and adapting to a high-protein diet took a toll on my body.

  2. Limited Social Activities: Eating out became a real struggle since most restaurants don’t serve comprehensive fruit platters. Watching others enjoy their favorite snacks while I stuck to my fruit felt isolating at times.

  3. Financial Strain: Sustaining a raw fruit diet can be expensive. From the cost of organic fruits to the quantity required, it added up quickly. Despite my efforts, achieving an all-organic fruitarian diet proved financially challenging.

  4. Bloating and Discomfort: Consuming large amounts of fruit left me feeling bloated and uncomfortable. The shift from a high-protein, low-carb diet to an all-sugar, all-carb fruit regimen took my body some time to adjust.

Life After Fruitatarianism

While the fruitarian lifestyle didn’t become a long-term commitment for me, I did gain valuable insights and habits from the experience. I now focus on balancing my diet with plenty of fruits and plant-based proteins. Incorporating the lessons I learned about sugar intake and reading food labels, I’ve been able to make healthier choices in my everyday life.

So, the next time you contemplate going all in on a fruitarian diet, take a moment to consider your goals and preferences. While it may work wonders for some, it’s essential to find a diet that truly nourishes your body and satisfies your needs.
