30 Bananas a Day!

Is it possible to eat fruits only, be healthy and live a active lifestyle?

I would love to here your thoughts on this subject as I have been considering dropping greens out of my daily diet. Anyone one here done this for any amount of time?

It is not recommended on 30BaD: Benefits of Lettuce Greens

  

Dr. Doug's response on greens:

Many who have read your book are choosing to leave out greens because they are not drawn to them and want to just be "fruitarian." Any thoughts on this?

They are not following 811 at that point. I have not seen long-term fruitarians succeed, and have seen huge numbers of them fail (and too many die) over the almost four decades since I first started my dietary journey. My thoughts? DON'T do it. And certainly don't associate fruitarianism with 80/10/10. In my book, I recommend eating 2 to 6% of calories from green, leafy vegetables. This amounts to 40 to 120 calories for a person eating 2,000 calories (which, by the way, is very unlikely to be enough food for a person doing enough physical activity to be healthy). Forty calories is roughly a medium-sized head of lettuce. That is the absolute minimum I would suggest, and two to three times that is far more likely to provide adequate nutrition. People who eat more than 2,000 calories should adjust accordingly.

Anne Osborne is a fruit only gal but she does eat cucumbers which has some good minerals in it: a good source of Vitamin A, Pantothenic Acid, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Manganese, and a very good source of Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Potassium.

 
Anne says she gets the very best quality fruits, often picked ripe.  This would obviously make a huge difference in the amount of minerals you get from your fruit.  Her book is wonderful for any 811er!
