Sustainability and Social Implications
Many people just try to eat a high-fruit diet composed of 50–75 percent fruit. The rest of the diet contains vegetables, including beans for protein because of long term sustainability problems of a fruitarian diet.
It is difficult to follow the fruitarian diet for a long duration and make it a way of life. Because of reasons like social isolation, frequent hunger, psychological problems and others, many people just try to eat a high-fruit diet composed of 50–75 percent fruit. The rest of the diet contains vegetables, including beans for protein.
There are various social concerns associated with a fruitarian diet like animal rights, spiritualism, and meditation.
- Being a fruitarian can often lead to conflict with family, friends, and even society at large.
- For those who live on their own have no problem adapting this approach whereas it becomes a matter of conflict and non-adjustment when living with family. It sends out negative vibration and a feeling of fussiness.
- There is major non-acceptance and thinking gap. Elders often find it absolutely useless and insensible eating.
If keen on adapting the diet, an individual needs to consider how best to interact with family, and adjust so that it does not become a matter of inconvenience and anti-social attitude.
