I will start on this +90% fruit lifestyle soon. My main confusion is how is it possible to not get fat on +3000 kcal per day? I understand that DurianRider is lean as hell! This flies in the face of…Continue

"Yeah, I've been eating 10-15 dates each day for the past week. They make me thirsty, so I chug-a-lug some water. Problem solved. Also, their sweet, stickiness make me want to brush my teeth more. I think this is fine as long as I just brush…"

"I'm glad to hear things are better. A cheap, vegan food that is ridiculously nutritious is red lentils. If you're ambitious, you could even sprout them to have them raw, but cooking them is fine."

I've been vegan for twelve years, vegetarian for two years before that. I'm not terribly strict, but my diet is probably +95% vegan by weight throughout the year.

Since I bought a blender a year ago, I've been eating much more raw foods purely out of convenience.

After finding out about DurianRider and Freelee on YouTube, I'm curious to see what the effects of a Fruitarian diet would be on my life. Most curious is the lack of any caloric restriction. I have difficulty understanding how it makes any sense, but I'm not afraid of gaining weight for science if it doesn't pan out, so I'm eager to try it! Other than the calorie issue, I think eating mostly fruits is, in hindsight, very intuitive.

My current goals are to pack on a lot of lean muscle weight on a +3000-calorie Fruitarian diet through barbell lifting, weighted sprints, and rock climbing. I don't know if it's possible to pack on that muscle on fruit (DurianRider is awfully skinny), but I'd like to try.

My initial approach will be to go 80/10/10 and see what my gainz are after three or more months, which is more than enough time to make a lot of lifting progress. If 80/10/10 is not enough, I'll use seeds to bump up the fat and protein content.

Durianrider & Freelee started this site to bring together high carb, raw vegan and vegan lifestylists' across the Globe! 30bad is a high standard and high performance team! We're here to help you make our team! Let us know what high fruit assistance do you need?
I mostly need help figuring out the logistics of living this lifestyle:
- How to make this lifestyle affordable.
- How to store so much fruit without it going bad.

In addition, I will be asking forum members how the zero caloric restriction concept makes sense, because I simply do not understand it!
30bad is a fruit-focused vegan internet community which promotes a high carb fruit based vegan lifestyle free of any animal products. Our forum does not tolerate encouragement of anything contrary to this. Nor do we allow endorsement of non-vegan items or practises which involve the imprisonment, exploitation, abuse or murder of sentient beings. We also require our members to post with proper netiquette. Therefore, please indicate your intention:
I will comply because we are The Borg and resistance is fruitile
