A MUM-OF-TWO who has only eaten fruit for the past 27 years claims she never gets hungry – and she’s even brought her children up on the same raw diet.
52 year old Anne Osborne from Glass House Mountains, Queensland, Australia has been living off a “fruit only diet” also known as “fruitarian” for the past 27 years and that’s not all, her children Camlo 27 and Cappi 14 enjoy the same lifestyle!
Her usual day is filled with awesome fruits, here is her average meal schedule:
- Breakfast: Mango or a half a melon
- Mid morning: four bananas
- Lunch: An avocado
- Dinner: 2 Mangos
Anne went from being a vegan until 1991 to fruitarian has remained for the past 27 years. “I believe we are all frugivores – animals that thrive mostly on raw fruit, succulent fruit-like vegetables, roots, shoots, nuts and seeds – and it makes total sense to me to only eat fruit,” Anne said.
“It’s what my body craves. When you first transfer over to a fruit diet you don’t feel full in the same way as you do when eating regular food, but it has to be sustainable and now I don’t feel the hunger.”
Anne spends approximately $185.30 CAD on her fruit supply. Anne states that high quality fruits keep her feeling full. “If you want to follow a fruit-only diet, it has to be good stuff, be that organic, or foraged and grown in good quality soil.”
Anne only drinks still water and juiced oranges with the exception of birthdays and Christmas where she enjoys some “sparkling water”
While dining in a restaurant with friends / family she makes sure she bring her own fruit or she orders a fruit platter if available.
Christmas is no exception even when others are enjoying their roast.
“I have eight dates and half a melon on Christmas Day,” she revealed.
While it may not be a “holiday festive dinner” she admits eating just fruit means she won’t need a couple hour nap thereafter.
After breast feeding her two sons she brought them up as fruitarians. She did give them nuts for added nutrients when they needed it but the rest was all fruit. “All kids like fruit, especially if it’s good quality fruit and nice and ripe. We’ve had fruitarian birthday parties, which parents love as the kids aren’t hyper from all the usual sweets they get at these occasions, when they get home.”
For her sons birthday parties Anne woul dmake “watermelon cakes” with lots of kiwi fruits and oranges.
