About Dillon Olias: I’m a 19-year-old fruitarian from the UK. I’ve been 95% raw vegan for the past 7 months, predominantly eating fruit, especially juicy fruit. I have lived in Spain twice, once when I was 12 for a year and a half, and I also had 8 months in Spain for a football academy from August 2022 until April 2023. I’m currently living in the UK, but I’m looking to travel the world soon and document my fruitarian, spirituality, and potentially my fitness journey. I love to connect with you guys, so please leave a comment or reach out to me via Instagram or email. Maybe I’ll meet you in real life one day, I sure hope so!
