Can you live as a fruitarian?

Fruit should be an essential component of your daily diet, as it has many nutritional advantages. But, it’s not a good idea to try to live on fruit alone. Fruitarian diets may have great benefits, but since it relies on only one food group, it lacks many essential nutritional components. For Example, might severely suffer from calcium, protein, zinc and essential fatty acids. A fruitarian diet is excellent to maintain for a few days or weeks if you can make sure you get enough nutrients from it.  It should not be a long term food plan.
