I agree! I am a T2 diabetic although with the McDougall plan I have stopped 1 of my meds and hopefully all soon!! Even on Dr. M's plan I limit my fruit to 2 a day as he suggested. Diane

Thank you all for your comments!
I think I'll stick to the main Raw Foods parts of it all. Keeping to raw veggies and fruits with less cooked meals..but just keeps the veggies higher then the fruit! Thanks for the advice, and the professional tip, I really appreciate it!

Thanks, I would be very concerned about the amount of sugar. Especially for pre-diabetics.

I have a friend who is a Licensed Naturopath who says that the amount of fruit and thus sugar in this diet are too high to do long term and thus not healthy. She says plant based diets should be veggie heavy to be the most healthy and kidney friendly. I know McDougall and Esselstyn agree with this approach.

There is always a 'first'.. I heard it here first. Have no idea if it would be healthy or could be maintained as a lifestyle. I think I'll watch and listen and learn something new. emoticon

I tried it and I lost weight on it, but since I am not a real fan of fruit and like variety in my meals, I couldn't stick with it. You start Day one with water all day and a dinner of salad and fruit. Then you go for ten days on mono meals. One kind of fruit all day. Then add in greens. That's probably an oversimplification, but it may help. I prefer McDougall's Rules.

So I went on youtube looking for some new vegan recipes, and came across this girl "Freelea" who had started the 80/10/10 diet by Dr. Douglas Gragam 5 yrs ago and has lost a lot of weight -that came off very slowly over the years but is now in the best shape of her life. All because of being a fruit vegan. So that got me looking into other people's results from this and was amazed by it all, even from just the raw vegan diets.. (And let me just say when I say diet I dont mean a fad.. temporary things.. I mean it in the sense of lifestyle change.)
So I figured I'd get on here and see if anyone else on here has heard of this, tried it, etc. I don't have enough money to buy the book, but I hope to get it soon. But if anyone has any info, experience with this diet please message, I'd love to hear your story.
