Not very long. I mean I could probably survive forever but after the first week I might go little crazy.

You might survive but you wouldn't be healthy. Fruits can't supply all your nutritional needs. You have protein needs in order for your brain and muscles to function properly. And what about the benefits of vegetables and whole grains?

I'd miss a breakfast of steak and eggs with homefries and rye toast every Saturday morning.

I could survive on just fruit for as long as I needed to survive on it since I wouldn't just give up and starve to death :D

I would miss MEAT the most, though... I love all types of meat.

After carefully thinking about it for about 30 seconds, Red Meat would be the food I would miss most. Why? Because I was basically a vegetarian as a youngster and now I have to play catch up.

Probably 2 days tops... I would miss cheese, chips/dip, sandwiches, and meat just does something wholesome and filling to my stomach... so I'd miss chicken (we eat a lot of chicken cooked many different ways).

I've never dated a fruitarian. Do they hang out down at Haymarket? I like high energy women. I like fructose.

But what about protein? Avacadoes?
