As a new fruitarian, I've been grabbing every book I can regarding my new lifestyle. I read the other reviews of this book and decided that I would give it a shot since it was pretty inexpensive.

I should have used the money to buy more fruit as this book was not worth the price.

This book is hokey. I'm no professional editor or scholar of the English language (I'm sure I made grammatical errors in this review), but this book is filled with grammatical errors. For example, I found this sentence: "Are you ready, here it is." When I buy a book, I expect it to at least be grammatically correct. After reading this book, I wonder if an editor even touched this book. This book is far from professional quality.

This book is also filled with personal opinion and little scientific/medical back up. For example, the author constantly talks about life-force, but fails to mention what it is, exactly, and how it is beneficial to us. He also fails to mention how life-force is measured and how life-force is only in fruits and nothing else. He also makes claims that could be easily rebutted by a 5th grade debate group. For example, one of the mini-chapters is titled Good taste=nutritious. He goes on to explain that fruits are our natural diet because the food looks, smells, and tastes good, but he doesn't realize that cooked foods taste good, and not all of them are nutritious. Hamburgers sure do taste good to me, they must be nutritious!

I highly recommend this book for those seeking to further their knowledge of why a fruitarian diet could be the answer to their body's needs.

As an experienced (and very often failed) dieter for both nutritional and weight-loss purposes, I have researched many different types of diet and eating, from Weight-Watchers to Atkins to raw-food. Every step brought me new information, all the information took me to further education, and that allowed me to make informed decisions as to what my body needed.

A fruitarian diet is not for everyone. We are all different and our bodies need different things. This book is a gentle introduction to what constitutes a fruit (believe it or not, there are people who do not know this), nutritional information on proteins and calcium that is often misunderstood, and arguments for and against eating things that are not fruits. Basic topics that I hungered to know when making my initial decisions regarding my diet and lifestyle such as organic produce and whether or not to take supplements are also covered. There is some very introductory level information on growing fruits; not enough to enable a person to plant a thriving fruit garden, but enough for inspiration to learn more.

I give this book only 4 stars rather than the 5 I'd like to give it because some of the information is a bit too basic. There is a chapter devoted to describing fruits, and while some of the items were helpful, most of us know what an apple or an orange or a grape is, how it grows, and how to eat it. That said, the book is a very easy read, very informative on an introductory level, and educational for those who are new to the idea of frutarian diet and lifestyle.

All in all, I really liked this book.

Fruit; the Ultimate Diet is a very good book to read when you're looking for inspiration and encouragement to try out being fruitarian. Any worries you might have are summarily and efficiently dispelled by the author.

His description of their enormous orchard is enough to start one dreaming of having a like experience.

What's great is that he's demonstrating that it is possible and viable to become fruitarian.

I recommend this book, and think I'll buy another copy after I post this, since mine's disappeared!

Fruit: The Ultimate Diet is an oldy, but a goody. I need more information on food combining and recipes. But the information that is presented is good for someone who is just starting out on a fruitarian path.
