Fruitarianism?!?

I've been wandering the blogosphere....

I happened upon this article on what may be my new favorite blog, No Meat Athlete.

Name of blog: super cool
Couch to IronMan in 20 months: crazy awesome
Articles on non-traditional diets: check! Whenever I hear diets that a lot of people would consider crazy, I melt. If I won the lottery, I might just quit my job and spend the rest of my life exploring these diets, trying them out, and blogging about them. However, they take time, commitment, and unfortunately my time is otherwise committed these days. Plus my family wouldn't so much enjoy it - and I wouldn't put my kids on one of these types of diets without being on it for a long time myself and knowing the effects.

I do believe that there is no one size fits all way to eat. As the area of functional food continues to grow - more and more we are learning that there are certain foods that individuals (not people in general, but individuals) simply don't tolerate well. Look at the explosion of food allergies, or the number of people that are finding they are intolerant to gluten, soy, etc - the list goes on.

So I came upon this article and fell in love with a blog that is willing to give these types of diets a platform. I know they are controversial. But you never know what might just be the crazy thing that works for you....
