  • FRUITARIAN!!!!

    sobizaar said:

    i was a fruitarian for a while but the problem with fruitarianism is that it doesn’t give you all of the nutrients you need, and the main problem is that the fruits we have today we have grown to be sweet. for example, before we messed with them, apples were pretty awful fruit to eat, not sweet and very small.

    but if you feel good, then keep on it, i hope you keep feeling well, but if you decide to come off i hope you can stay raw and healthy :)

     That is a SAD(standard american diet) way of looking at fruit. Almost all fruits are sweet. Northern fruits are more sour or bitter, and of course there are different types of fruits, but most fruits in the world are all incredibly sweet. Most fruits in the world come from more tropical climates. There are so many fruits to eat in a rainforest and in tropical climates, your mind would be blown. Some taste like key lime pie, some taste like vanilla ice cream or flan, some taste like sweet chocolate, its limitless. 

    I will only name a very small percentage here: Jocote, ice cream bean, Manzana de Agua, Guanabana, mamey, Maracuya, passion fruit, Soncoya, Caimito, Fruta de Pan, soursop, Guaba(not Guava), Guanábana, sausage fruit, rambutan, mangosteen, jackfruit, longan, tamarindo, mamones, granadilla, caimitos, anona, maranon, nanzi, papaya, Pejibaye, rose-apple, sapodilla, zapote, black sapote(chocolate pudding fruit), persimmon, mangos(hundreds of varieties), bananas(hundreds of varieties), jujubes, cherimoyas, Buddha's hand citron, star fruit, dragon fruit, surinam cherries, durian, coconuts(though coconuts aren't really a fruit, but a nut),  seagrapes, cocoplums, avocado, figs, dates, melons etc... etc.... etc.... 

    People in the tropical regions have been living on mostly fruit for far longer than any man has been living on meat. It is senseless to live on meat when there is a paradise of fruit on this earth. Completely senseless. Why kill if there is no need for killing. There are so many fruits in these regions, you people wouldnt believe the amount of nutrition you can get. We are starving for nutrition compared to these tropical regions. I live in florida, which is a sub-tropical region, and tropical in south florida. The amount of fruit that grows here alone can feed ao many people. We have two mango trees in the yard that could feed the whole block, they produce so much fruit, and there are mango trees all over the place, not just the ones in our yard. The common things that people grow here are papaya, mangos, star fruit, bananas, guava, sapote, sapodilla, florida pear, surinam cherries, coconuts, seagrapes, etc... since this is a subtropical to tropical state, we can grow pretty much anything here. I personally grow guava, star fruit, mangos, avocados, jackfruit, figs, etc. You cant say fruits werent originally sweet. We have at the most 20 varieties of fruit in our regular chain grocery stores, not much compared to our local farmers markets, which have at least 50 varieties of fruit around. If you think you cant get your nutrients from fruit, you must not know what fruit is. And to say fruits werent originally sweet, my my.... you need to get out a little. I dont know what kind of fruitarian you were. Lol. Must have eaten apples, oranges, and bananas for every meal. I dont even look at apples as fruit, let alone food. If you really want to be a fruitarian, you have to go explore. You cant stay stuck in the SAD(standard american diet) world, which sees fruit as only apples, bananas, and oranges, mere side items that are rarely touched over more processed junk foods that all come in a wrapper, can, or box. Of course you arent going to get the proper nutrition that way, sticking with only a handful of varieties of fruit. EXPLORE our fruity world. Most fruitarians live where the fruit is, and always have.

  • Sick when eating cooked food

    Cooked food definitely upsets my System, creating a mental, physical and spiritual imbalance. It’s for my own well-being I stick to raw now, otherwise I feel horribly ill.

  • Sick when eating cooked food

    i was whole food vegan like 13 years when 27 months ago went raw , well after the first 8 months totally raw and doing several fasts any where from 3 to 20 days i got sick of constantly worrying about eating ’ perfect ’ and revolted by having my old favorite cooked whole vegan meal . and i couldnt believe how numbed / dulled up and sickly like i had the flu i felt . i really thought i had the flu and dismissed it at that . well then say 5 months later i revolted again for a cooked vegan meal and same thing . then several months later tried another cooked vegan meal and same thing . at that point i said thats it , now that my system is used to raw pure cell fuel cooked devitalized slop is like throwing wet logs on a fire = they smolder instead of burning brightly . and my cells are all little fires that burn on the fuel i eat , and raw fuel is like dry fire wood to my cell fires that burn brightly on it . now the lessons been established enough for me to never eat cooked and put all my focus into seeking out the perfect raw foods for my type . and its just a matter of time before raw goes mainstream and the more people involved the more ideas thrown around and the quicker everyone shall find their ideal raw diet .

    Kundalalita, I too experience intense emotional discord and severe depression whenever I eat cooked processed food. That is my chief reason for avoiding it actually because I cannot handle the anxiety and panic that comes. For most of my life I was suicidally depressed without knowing why, and when I started fasting and eating RAW, it lifted and it was like I could breathe and be myself free of darkness for the first time. Now whenever I eat just a little bit of SAD food, the darkness comes back which is why I avoid it like the plague. So I can definitely relate to how you are feeling now.

    I’m sure lots of green smoothies and green juice could help you now. Maybe even doing a fast of some type until you feel better and less anxious (that helps me big time).

    Oil can be tough on the tummy! I was surprised how sick I felt the first time I had deep fried squash after a few months of eating raw.

    I think it makes life easier once you realize just how bad some cooked food really is.

  • Winter! Raw till four???? Advice!!! Weight gain?

    Hi! I Hope your day is going well! It is totally fine to warm yourself up with steamed veggies, warm soup, hot cacao, you name it! The reason why soup became popular is because in the winter time, people were getting cold like yourself and their own body temperature eventually could not keep up. Due to this, people became sick. In order to fight infection and illness, your body must be warm in order for immune cells to work at its peak(warmer temperatures boost the bodies antiviral response). Therefore I advise you to eat warmer food in the winter time and raw in the summer. This way in the summer you can get all the enzymes in the food you need. In the summer we usually don't get sick, so there is no need to break down food to make it easier for digestion(which allows your body to overcome illness by targeting only that illness instead of breaking down food) I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week and I hope this helps!!
