itís just over 4 weeks since i decided to try to go fruitarian again. after a period of 1 year being fruitarian, about 3 years ago now, iíve struggled to get back to this diet. mostly, i think, the reasons have been psychological, rather than physiological. itís just too easy to eat comfort foods when iím feeling a bit down. this time iíve decided to take a slightly different approach. iím sticking to all organic fruits, and vegetable fruits, and abstaining from any water. iím also, to date, avoiding anything dried or cooked. i started with just black grapes. i did 2 weeks of that and then decided to add a bit of variety by including apples, oranges, courgettes and tomatoes. iíve also, now, added avocados and nectarines, though these have come from an organic supplier as they arenít currently available in any of the supermarkets iíve tried. sadly, the variety of organic fruit in supermarkets has substantially declined since i was last fruitarian. at the moment iím just taking this on a day to day basis. iím not really sure what i want to achieve, though i do recall that i used to sleep far better when i was on this diet previously. i think my main motivation is simply to be happier with my diet. and, certainly, the happiest iíve ever been, diet wise, was as a fruitarian.
my all organic stance has slightly slipped. iíve succumbed to some non-organic avocados and lemons, mainly because of difficulty getting them organic. but iím still going to try to eat organic fruits, and fruit vegetables, wherever possible. i particularly like avocado and lemon juice mixed together. hence the temptation, i guess. however, iím going to try not to eat too many avocadoes, as iíve found in the past that they can be quite addictive.
