    That is not healthy, it is recommended to have 2-4 servings of fruit per day ALONG with other foods such as meat and veggies.

    Lol, how about you try it and find out for yourself what is "healthy". There is nothing unhealthy about raw foods both veggies and fruits. That is absurd.

    it is recommended to have 2-4 servings of fruit per day ALONG with other foods such as meat and veggies.

    Do you always believe what you read without observation? I challenge you to try it and report back with what you experience. That same food pyramid tells you to consume dairy and meat products, grains and beans along with starch products.....which can be shown to be very unhealthy. Things are not always what they appear, you have to observe things for yourself.

    The only factor that seemed to predict which species had larger brains was whether their diets were primarily leaves or fruit

    Since I don't know of any humans that eat only or even primarily leaves this doesn't seem to be a useful comparison in determining the optimal diet for humans.

    Read that again. 

    was whether their diets were primarily leaves or fruit

    Fruit is superior to vegetation. Can you show how fruits are NOT  superior diet for humans with actual research and not just claims or opinions? I can supply link after link of how fruits are superior food sources in nutrition and what the HUMAN body thrives on.

    I'm only saying that looking at two classes of vegetarian monkey does not tell us anything about any diet that is not primarily vegetarian but I will heed your warning and make sure that I do not eat only leaves.

    I'm not arguing for a diet that is primarily vegetarian, rather fruitarian. 


    It is a superior food source and I'm only gifting you with power and health. Try it and replace a few meals with just fruits and see what the difference is. You may be pleasantly surprised. Because all in all, this will be your refuge and healing in any given situation. Give me a week of raw foods, primarily fruits but you can add some salads here and there.....and I will show you the most vitality you have had since you can remember. Just 5 days, and see which one of us has the right information and correct food source for humans.

    "But scientists disagree on what drove primates to evolve big brains in the first place. Now, a new study comes to an unexpected conclusion: fruit."

    "Primates that eat leaves have to lie around for hours, with all their energy going toward digestion."
    "Eating fruit, on the other hand, offers an animal a jolt of calories in an easy-to-digest package. In primates, the main beneficiary of all that newly available energy is the brain."

     I have no reason to experiment with foods when I can read what the experts encourage you to eat to meet the body's requirements. You are no expert by any stretch of the imagination.

    EtrnlVw claims:

    But, you are no expert and are actually giving bad advice based on what the experts say. Why would you willfully try to harm others?

    That video is an hour and twenty minutes long. What are the chances that in that whole time any evidence for or against the idea of "god worlds" is presented rather than assumed. Honestly I watched thirty seconds before the guy lost me with an unfounded claim.

    Every body reacts differently to different diets. You can't just say fruits are the sure way 100% route to good health. It has been shown, bc it was studied, that a vegetarian diet is beneficial and can even reverse some ailments. That is bc it was studied. People on diets such as the keto diet are reporting back with success stories they didn't get from any other diet. But these diets are new and haven't been studied as long as vegetarian diets. What i do know however is eating only fruits is not healthy. But i also do know that a vegetarian diet is 100% better than the standard American diet. Next to the other ones, no one knows. There is just anecdotal evidence... and, from this evidence people report the most vitality they've ever felt from things like the carnivore diet... look up Jordan Petterson and his daughter. Nothing else worked for them... But, it is speculated that they might have leaky gut syndrome or something that doesn't go well with anything else and works perfect with meat. Through research, i decided to not try it bc it didn't sound sustainable for my body. But that proves every body is different and you can't just say eat fruit or a veggie diet and you'll be fine. Some will react horribly to that diet. The best diet is one you can sustain in the long term while also allowing you to easily have a caloric deficit when you need to. My body reacts best to a nutrivore diet with a once a week cheat day. That is the only diet i have been able to sustain and experts say that is the most important.

    Are you serious? wow, I didn't post that link to prove anything to you about spirituality, but like I said, if anything here interests you follow that link. If you have any ailment or physical problems check the videos list and see if there is something that applies to your situation. If you are as healthy as a bug, just keep it in the back of your head and know there is a decent source for you to get well in any health crisis. Let your food be your medicine.

    Hey my friend we've been over this before. You guys can eat whatever the hell you like it is your bodies and your health. Nothing in this thread I posted is harmful, rather extremely beneficial and that would be my only intent. This is not an opinion but pure chemistry, fruits have many beneficial properties over many food sources and is an excellent, superior choice of foods for humans. 
    I was a meat eater most of my life up until about 6 years ago so this is not something I just post for fun or to be an azz, what I say here is from experience. The difference in vitality and health with a raw fruit and veggie diet is not even comparable but again, I'm not trying to force anyone to do anything only putting the information out there for people to have something to fall back on, a sure fix and a sure triumph. BTW, if someone has leaky gut syndrome the very worst thing they could do is consume an acidic diet, which would only add more deterioration. With something like that, fruits would be a perfect option due to its chemistry and the alkaline nature. I find more than anything is the lack of discipline when eating, people want to eat what they want to eat, they don't realize their problems and health crisis come from the very things they shove in their mouths. So it is every man for himself and I ain't trying to change that, only drop information in peoples minds that they may use later, or when they realize they are in serious trouble. Let your food be your medicine.

    In that case forgive me for being a bit confrontational. Allow me to just say that it doesn't appear to be the sort of video that would usually peek my interest. I might check it out. Thank you for the link I  any case.

    Understood that's cool. Interestingly enough, it just so happens that the two categories that interest me the most are spirituality and health. Perhaps that is due to how I am naturally, I both care about really important things in life and I have a huge heart for people and their well-being. Sometimes it may come across as aggressive but it is just passion TBH.

    I'm not trying to be divisive. I acknowledge there is evidence that a veggie diet is good for you. But there is also evidence for "some" people it isn't very good (especially if it's only fruits). That's all i'm saying. Everyone wish's it was black and white so they can easily find a good diet. But that isn't how it usually goes down. Things that work for some don't for others unfortunately.

    Don't believe everything you read
    hundreds if not thousands of diets ranging the spectrum of vegan to adkin's type.  I have yet to hear of humanoid bones being recovered that was a vegan, doesn't mean modern man can't be but if we are looking to the past to see what is natural/normal, it appears veganism isn't it.  Plants don't grown year round or produce year round, only under artificial and modern conditions is that possible.  Another theory/argument is fruit being available mostly in the fall is consumed in greater quantities to fatten up for the winter when food will be scarce.  Animals do it, so why not humans as well?  There are some nutritional benefits to fruit but it is high in sugar and starches (many of what we call vegetables can be or should be classified as fruits).  Picking foods with complex carbohydrates and low glycemic index is your best option imo.  The selective propagation and gene modification of plants makes them far different than the original which must change their nutritional values as well, otherwise we could just take vitamins and not have to worry about eating.

    Look up the banana the "Gros Michel" it's pretty interesting if you don't know the story.

    The problem is you get so much specious information on both topics, neither of which seem to hold in any of your arguments.
