This is a LONG report. It's an unofficial chapter/draft in my forthcoming book that I plan on publishing in late 2012.

This is a 45min+ read... (if you find any typo's send me an email :) thanks!)

My wife Victoria Arnstein has my RESPECT! 21 Day Fast Completed!

Today my wife crossed a major finish line!  She just completed 504 hours (21 days!) of only drinking water!

I am in awe of her determination and maturity in her quest for the best health possible.

My wife Victoria really is an inspiration, I'm so impressed with her, I really find myself speechless.


I've doubted her convictions, ideas and promises in the past,... yet forever I know now she's capable of anything she really decides she wants to accomplish.  I owe…

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… Continue

Another Marathon Win For My Diet! NJ Marathon 2010

The NJ Marathon has 3 races combined in one. A marathon, 1/2 marathon and marathon rely.

Total there are over 10,000. runners! This is a big crowd!

The scene at the start is massive, it's like a major city marathon with a sea of people.

With so many runners it's very exciting to do well.

Yet since they don't offer prize money no super elite professional runners usually do it.

It's still competitive and usually the winner has to run close to 2:30 to win.… Continue

50km race - 1st place on a banana

I really honestly don't like to brag, and I mean it when I say I am posting this for the purposes of disproving the naysayers about my fruitarian diet...but when you win a marathon, ultra marathon or middle distance race just about every weekend for months on end, people got to know about it ... especially when I eat nothing but fruit!

I ran the boston marathon on monday in 2:28, then ran 13 miles on tuesday, then 16 on wed, then 25 on mt. trails on thur, then friday took it easy only ran… Continue

I ran 100km (62.2miles) FAST! - Just on ORANGES!

Yup, I ran 100km in 7 hours and 27 minutes - ONLY eating oranges/OJ juice.

That is an average per mile pace of 7:12.

Do you want to know what it feels like to run 60 miles, and then run

the last 2.2 miles at a pace of 6:30 per mile? How is that possible to

run for 7 1/2 hours with zero rest and still be able to run fast... the

answer: Fruitarianism

I just ran the USA Ultra running 100km…

People aren't questioning if my diet is unhealthy anymore!

I've been eating a lfrv/Fruitarian diet since Jan. 2008

A lot of people from family, friends, training partners and etc think that I'm unhealthy or I'm 'soon' going to 'breakdown'.

Well I keep running faster, keep pushing new limits and so far so good...

I've run so many PR/PB from 10k to marathon's to ultra distances I can't keep count these days.

I ran a 2:30.59 marathon a week after running a 50mile race in 5 hours 50 minutes. On top of running 150 mile…

Western States 100mile Run Help, Need some Support/crewing

I'm running the Western States 100mile endurance run in California (Lake Tahoe/Auburn) in late June 2010. I am going to train hard for this race and will be looking to place high. I am in need of some hard core athlete's/runners who live in the area who could crew me in this race. I am looking for people that know about 811 fuel and what goes into crewing an ultra runner who is hell bent on pushing the limits.

If you don't know what crewing is, this is not the race to learn about it, I'm… Continue
