What Happens If You EAT FRUIT EVERYDAY For 30 Days? | Dr. Steven Gundry

Fruitarians,” as they are commonly called, eat solely fruit (and some nuts.) While this may sound extreme, there are several famous celebrities that have chosen this diet.
Steve Jobs spent portions of his life as a fruitarian. It’s even said that he named his company Apple because he believed it sounded “fun, spirited, and not intimidating.” According to Walter Isaacson’s Jobs biography (via NBC News), he would sometimes eat only carrots and apples for weeks on end. YouTube celebs and bloggers have chosen this lifestyle and espouse its benefits online.Vitamin D is also important for strong cellular health. It’s an anti-inflammatory and helps keep your immune system. In other words, your body needs Vitamin D to keep you healthy. While there are Vitamin D supplements available, those supplements often have additives that the fruitarian diet prohibits. You can absorb vitamin D through the skin, but as our bodies age, this becomes more difficult. If you choose to only consume fruit, you may be depriving your body of a valuable nutrient.Without some levels of protein and fats, your body may decide it is starving. This can cause important systems to shut down as you slip into survival mode. Rgistered dietitian Kate Patton explains, “The fruitarian diet has a big risk of malnourishment.” The restrictive nature of limiting your body to only fruit keeps this from being a balanced diet. Even if you add in a few nuts or seeds, you will rarely feel full and your body will sense something is awry.Starvation mode doesn’t occur if you skip a meal or two. But a consistent lack of nutrients will trigger warning bells in your body. As your body struggles with lack of nourishment, you may start to feel lethargic, depressed, constipated, chilled, or even lose your hair. The best way to avoid this? Eat a balanced diet. Fruits by themselves are not enough nourishment for the body and the body will assume no “next meal” is on its way.Fruit has excellent prebiotics that are important for digestion. According to the Mayo Clinic, prebiotics are like fertilizer for your gut – they help the healthy bacteria grow. There are nearly 1000 different types of bacteria in your gut to contribute to digestion. This bacteria lines your gut and helps you digest your food properly. Gut bacteria is responsible for good health, mood, and brain function.
