    The Fruitarian Diet is a healthy alternative that revolves around these seven fruit groups:

· Acid fruits: citrus, cranberries, pineapples

· Subacid fruits: sweet cherries, raspberries, figs

· Sweet fruits: bananas, grapes, melons

· Oily fruits: avocados, coconuts, olives

· Vegetable fruits: peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, squash

· Nuts: hazelnuts, cashews, almonds, pistachios, walnuts

· Seeds: sunflower, pumpkin, squash

    The fruitarian, or fruit, diet is a highly restrictive vegan diet. It excludes all animal products, including dairy. People following this program eat a diet consisting primarily of raw fruits. Vegetables, dried fruits, nuts, and seeds can also be eaten in moderation.
