What happens if you only eat veggies and fruits?
Only salads(spinach, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, broccoli, carrots etc) and fruits like apples, bananas, oranges, grapefruit and berries. Garbanzo beans, edamame or red beans on top of the salad, with a small amount of ranch for dipping...
Will you get more energy? end up pooping alot? healthier hair and skin?
We're talking about eating salads 2-3x a day and some fruit in between and maybe a few fruits for dinner...
oh, and a one a day multivitamin, biotin supplements and fish oil supplements

Well you need to understand that leaving meat, both from land based and sea based beings, out will certainly narrow down your options for those salads, because it's unhealthy to go under 1200 calories in a diet, because it will cause your muscle growth and replenishment to die down causing them to lose that strength and integrity and also cause damage to your internal organs because the human body needs enough fat in it's diet to properly sustain itself in the long run. The loss of protein from the meat is your biggest concern however, since they are one of the most important parts that come with meals. Fortunately for you nuts, seeds, soy products, cereal, eggs and dairy are all good meatless protein choices.

It's a healthy way to eat if you supplement it with other things but basically that diet is pure carbs. Healthy carbs, maybe, but pure carbs. The body needs proteins, fats, and carbs, all in generous supply, to be able to operate properly.
Ok, you want muscular atrophy, which makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.
But I'm gonna put this in a super simple way. It just takes one look at a humans teeth to tell we are omnivorous. We have been designed over a longgggggggggg time to eat a variety of thing, and we depend on this variety of things for nutrition to function properly. You need meat and protein because nature demands that you need it.
That's like asking what would happen if a shark stops eating seals? Well at first it's going to be super unhealthy, then it'll eventually die.
Why do you want to lose muscle? What are your goals? I haven't decided if you are a troll or just a completely misguided youth.
Though it's true your stools will smell like freshly-baked muffins, your gastric emissions will take on a wet, mucousy quality leaving indelible skid marks.
Well, at least eat more of the beans, especially edamame. Pure veggies/fruits without lentils or beans to get protein isn't healthy in the long run. Though you're not a kid, you're not fully developed yet. So you could be impacted by kwashiokor.
So make sure you get plenty of plant-based proteins at least.
You would poop a lot and then look like Elmo

They call it the raw food diet, check it out. It's very good for weight loss, and apparently you body in general. link
I think it would be hard to get enough calories just from that. It seems like something you can do for a week or two, but not in the longrun.
What you plan seems a bit like that paleo diet but if you leave out the meat
at least add some dairy products (or soy products if you're vegan), nuts, eggs, protein shakes and go big on the beans/lentils because you need protein
