Well look at me digging up this thread!
Mike - did you find what you were looking for? About 2 years ago i asked the same question - did a bunch of googling - and found this guy:
So - it seems rediculous at first. But when you think about it - plants produce fruiting structures to continue their lives through offsprings. Some of those fruiting structures are full of sugar and are intended to be eaten by mammals who will then spread the seeds around in exchange for the sugar! It's like - not only "no-kill" but it is also a good deal for the plants (in the old days anyways).
So I actually did that for 3 months. Lost 40 pounds of overweight - stopped being sick all the time. Needed less sleep - and in general felt great! Pressures of society came in though and for the last 1. 5 years i have been "only" vegan.
While I think the the "no-kill" fruit only diet is ethically, spiritually and health-wise the best choice... I have found that the vegan diet is a good compromise. It seems to me that the different between eating fruit and killing plants is vastly small compared to the difference between killing plants and killing animals. I have tried the though experiment of imagining the best case scenario of each: and how it effects my emotions... and if that is any valid test, it is still worth it to go vegan.
That being said - I am in the continuous effort myself to move my diet towards the only no-kill diet i know of, eating fruit!
Now also - I know there is a lot of paleo/anti-carb/keto info out there right now. And I shoudl say - for about 7 years before i found this new way I was pretty strictly "paleo"/"Low carb". For the first few years "it worked". Then I started to get sick all the time. Personally - I have found that a lot of the anti-carb/sugar things out there can be traced back to so called science studies funded by the dairy and meat industries. So - i hear people responding ot my comment already about the danger of so much sugar. But man, I have _never_ felt so healthy and incredible in my life than when I was eating _only_ sugar in the form of fruit. It was amazing.
Anyways - "food" for though, lol.
