Describe your current diet/lifestyle.

Lots of fresh raw produce from the farmer's market, raw muesli, some cooked vegan food.

What is your favorite fruit?

Depends on the season.

Are you familiar with a fruit based diet?

No answer yet

Have you read "The 80/10/10 Diet" by Douglas N. Graham?

Yes, and have seen him speak, and am very unimpressed. His books are just his own opinions, not backed up by reference to research. At his talk he dealt with anyone who asked questions he didn't like by sneering at them, instead of giving a rational well-informed answers. A high carbohydrate diet of whole plant foods is certainly the best. But some people on fruitarian diets or mostly-fruit diets have developed tooth loss, skin problems, or hair becoming thin and breaking off easily. Proponents of fruit-based diets don't warn people of this, and that's not right.

What are your favorite activities?

Watching documentaries, going to vegan potlucks, massage therapy, Tibetan Buddhism, web surfing.
