30 Bananas a Day!

Victoria and Michael Arnstein at the Chicago Marathon - get on the News and mention Fruit!

We were interviewed on ABC news at the Chicago Marathon.
Vicky always wants to talk about eating fruit at every chance she gets. It was comical when I gave her a nudge to tone it down, as I knew she was going to go into making comments that wouldn't get us on the air.

The clip is very funny, worth watching I think. Fast forward to about 2 min. and 15 seconds to see a 50 second clip on us.

I think if you want to talk about fruitarianism or a diet that is very high in fruit intake it's gotta be done in a very careful way when talking to main stream media/regular folks. The last thing I think you want to say is - 'hey, I'm a fruitarian and you should be too!'

A balance of setting a good example and talking openly about the diet is a delicate art, certainly something that everyone has a strong opinion on.

HA ha, Thanks guys. we were actually arguing about things right before we went on the air. Also, Whenever I mention the fruity diet, Michael gives me a look or a nudge to shut my mouth b/c people won't understand! I say who gives a s*** what people think? He is more bashful and into what others think and I could care less. I say get the word out(even if I am not 100% I still believe in it!) and I say what I believe in regardless of what others may think..I just simply explain and tell them to go to sites like this and the fruitarian and read doug's book etc. I love teaching everyone about this. I even tell cashiers at the checkout in a supermarket and I love sharing this info as much as I can. I told the reporter and the cameraman about this diet when we are off camera. I even told them to go to the fruitarian website. I even told people I ran with that spotted us on the course of the marathon..lol..I stop at nothing! I even tell people on my facebook page and so many people are sick of me..who cares..I told them to delete me if they don't like it!
Michael said that if I said anything more than a week to eat fruit it would not have aired and they would probably have pulled the clip..but the news reporter told her camera man, that she absolutely loved us and she was cutting almost everyone else out that she interviewed before us..lol.
Hey I have always been in sales and was never shy, so if I could promote the fruit lifestyle, I will. It is the best thing I could do for society for me and my kid's future!! That is how I see it! Thanks for watching guys!

Ha that nudge was a priceless moment, I wonder if that is the same with other couples. I am thinking free would have to use a baseball bat on DR a nudge would not be enough :-)
