A fruit-based diet would be where you would get most of your calories from sweet fruit. That means at least 50% of your calories from fresh fruit. Does that sound like a lot? I’ve designed for you some seasonal fruit menus that come out to about 1000 calories each. Remember that I’m not suggesting that you eat this fruit all at once. It could be throughout the day. I’m giving you examples so you can get an idea of how much fruit it takes to account for 1000 calories. So for a person needing 2000 calories per day, that would account for half of their caloric intake.

And remember how enjoyable and vitamin-packed all that fruit is! I’m also giving you an idea as to which nutrients are being met by eating all that fruit everyday. I did the values for myself (5 10, male, 28 years old), so it is approximate.

1000 calories of fruit is about:

A big bowl of cherries (about 50 cherries): 250 calories
1 pint of strawberries (100 calories)
15 apricots (250 calories)
3 mangoes (400 calories)

(That fruit, by the way, will provide 750% of your vitamin C, 385% of your vitamin A, 125% of your vitamin E, 110% of your vitamin B-6, as well as good amounts of magnesium (42%), phosphorus (42%), iron (65%), calcium (23%), thiamin (63%), riboflavin (77%), niacin (55%), and folate (55%))

1000 calories of fruit is about:

4 bananas (435 calories)
3 large oranges (250 calories)
2 pomegranates (200 calories)
1 large apple (125 calories)

(That fruit will provide 612.48% of your vitamin C, 268.04% of your vitamin B-6, as well as a good amount of vitamin E (49.72%), folate (70%), niacin (30%), iron (33%), and calcium (27%), phosphorus (30%), and magnesium (52%))

1000 calories of fruit is about:

4 apples (350 calories)
4 large persimmons (475 calories)
2 pears (200 calories)

(That fruit will provide 149.25% of your vitamin A, 158.57% of your vitamin C, as well as good amounts of vitamin E (73%), thiamin (30%), riboflavin (26%), vitamin B-6 (76%), iron (28%), phosphorus (27%), and magnesium (27%))

1000 calories of fruit is about:

1 large cantaloupe (285 calories)
1 pound of fresh figs (350 calories)
2 cups of grapes (225 calories)
2 apples (165 calories)

(That fruit will provide 265.73% of your vitamin A, 7977.1% of your vitamin E(!), 670.51% of your vitamin C, 289.11% of your thiamin, and 152.89% of your vitamin B-6, as well as good amounts of riboflavin (30%), niacin (36%), folate (39%), iron (30%), calcium (28%), and magnesium (30%))

Hai friends
In my opinion fruit based diet is best for us. We are generally taking food but there is no use of by taking plates of dinner, but If we can replace the dinner plate into delicious fresh fruit plate then we can see the marvelous result in our body. Each fruit contains some vitamins. Fruit is a necessary component of overall health, it’s unlikely a fruit-only diet can satisfy your body's nutritional needs. A fruit diet also provides a high energy level, mental clarity and better overall health. It claims fruit contains a plentiful supply of enzymes, aiding in digestion.
