FYI; fruitarianism

Fruitarians can choose from seven basic fruit groups:
•Acid fruits: Citrus, pineapples, strawberries, pomegranates, kiwi, cranberries, and sour apples
•Subacid fruits: Sweet apples, sweet cherries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, peaches, pears, cheri-moyas, papayas, figs, apricots, and mangos
•Sweet fruits: Bananas, grapes, melons, and persimmons
•Nuts: Pecans, almonds, Brazil, cashews, walnuts, macadamias, pistachios, pine nuts, hazelnuts, beechnuts, and hickory
•Seeds: Sunflower, sesame, squash, and pumpkin
•Dried fruits: Dates, figs, apricots, apples, raisins, cherries, prunes, bananas, and cranberries

Oily fruits: Avocados, coconuts, and olives.

Fruitarian and author David Wolfe says it is best to eat one type of fruit at a time and wait 45 minutes before another type of fruit is eaten. The Fruitarian Foundation recommends waiting at least 90 minutes between fruit types. If a person still is hungry after eating one type of fruit, they should eat more of the same type of fruit until their hunger is satisfied. People on the diet should eat only when hungry and then eat as much as they want until their hunger is satisfied. Those on a diet where only one type of fruit is eaten at a time will know when they have eaten enough, according to Wolfe. Their appetite will turn off and they will suddenly feel like they have eaten too much. Once satiated they will not gain the same satisfaction from the fruit. This is a signal from the body to stop eating, Wolfe states. The signal to stop eating is not as strong in people who eat more than one type of fruit at the same time.

Still, it will be difficult to get the amount of protein the body needs on a daily basis. Vitamin, mineral, and other nutritional supplements can be taken to insure that a person is getting the recommended amounts. However, this does not fit into the nature-only philosophy of many fruitarians

There is little, if any, scientific research that supports fruitarianism as a healthy lifestyle, especially over the long-term, unless foods such as beans, green vegetables, soy, and whole grains are included in the diet. However, there is much scientific documentation on the benefits of a vegetarian diet.

Maybe staying away from vegetables not containing high amounts of sulfur would be good for reducing odor.

Both vegetarian and non vegetarian foods are responsible for sulfur burps. Among the vegetarian foods you could stay away from Sweet potatoes, Asparagus,Cabbage, Garlic, Onions, Tomatoes, Broccoli, Whey protein, peas, beans, soy and so on. Besides these vegetarian foods you should also avoid too much consumption of red meats, canned foods, eggs and dairy products. Beverages like tea, coffee and colas should also be avoided to some extent. Fruits like cashews, coconuts and bananas are known to trigger sulfur burps as well and should be avoided.

All this is confusing and take a lot of trial and error, patience and WILL POWER to do it. I don't know if I can but I hope I can try it for a few weeks.
