The Couple’s Story
The story is that Tina, from Poland found the Fruitarian diet after doing a pre-Christmas cleanse. She was happy with her results and to fully commit to the lifestyle she decided to move to Bali to get away from the temptations she had at home and also to discover more exotic fruits.
Simon moved to Bali partly inspired by Tina’s instagram posts and they later met and eventually started a relationship.
They have grown a large following online and are inspiring a lot of people with their story. It is fantastic to see more Fruitarians getting out there with a positive message. It also goes to show that the media and people in general, are very interested and curious in stories about the Fruitarian diet.
Perhaps more Fruitarians should be trying to get their story out to the world like this?
The Fruitarian Diet And Teeth
They claim not to have brushed their teeth in years yet their teeth have been better than ever. Tina says:
“When you eat whole fruit the fibre in the fruit cleans out your teeth. I don’t brush my teeth either.
“When I went for a check-up after three years, the dentist called two other dentists to show my teeth to them – my teeth were in such good condition she couldn’t believe it.
“But please don’t try this with dried fruit – as this sticks to your teeth and makes them rot.”
Tina makes a great point about dried fruit. A lot of people have had problems with their teeth eating fruit but many have potentially had these problems coming from dried fruit, like dates, rather than fresh, juicy fruit.
Still, to limit and potential problems with teeth, it is generally recommended that you have a discussion with your dentist about the state of your teeth and continue to practise good dental hygiene.
