why are so many people on this site afraid of fruit? why do so many people on this site think that a diet high in fat is healthier than a diet high in fruit? why are there no fruitarians or low-fat vegans on this site with candida problems? why do so many high-fat eaters have candida?
we are biologically designed to eat fruit!
the human species are frugivores. we are designed to eat predominantly raw fruit. were we born with stoves on our backs to cook grains? or canine like teeth for ripping open meat? or dehydrators to make combo abombo "raw" recipes? or maybe with extractors to cold press oil? no! we were born with long fingers, perfect for opening up ripe fruit. Our natural foods must necessarily appeal to ALL our relevant senses. our natural foods appeal to us in their raw, whole natural form. Eating should always be a gustatory delight. Do you salivate at the sight of a dead carcass like a true carnivore? does the thought of raw wheat sound appealing? what about a juicy watermelon? i'm sure everyone would go for the latter. fruit is definitely appealing to the senses. it's beautiful for one. maybe that's why people often paint it. ripe fruit gives off heavenly aromas. they have all sorts of textures, and fruit tastes amazing whole, unprocessed and raw! fruit takes no preparation. grains, legumes, and animal products need to be cooked, processed, or adulterated in some way to make it palatable. salt or A1 anyone?
fruit is so easy to digest. it goes straight through the stomach and gets digested in the intestines where the nutrients are assimilated very efficiently with the exception of bananas. they get digested in the stomach but also very quick and efficiently. meat can take around 24 hours to digest. Putrefying meat in the intestines...sounds healthy. dairy is mucous forming and prevents optimal absorption of vitamins and minerals. grains are relatively un-digestible. the evidence is in your stool (think corn). nuts and seeds in the wild only have about a 2 week long season. that means, in the wild we would only be eating nuts and seeds for 2 weeks out of the year.
fruit consists mostly of water. it is the most hydrating of foods. cooked foods provide no water and actually take some of your body's own water to digest. sames goes for dehydrating. fruit comes in a package with the perfect ratio of water and fiber. the water and fiber help the sugar release slowly so that your blood sugar levels do not spike. eating fruits in their unnatural state; dried fruits or drinking fruit juices will spike your blood sugar because of the absence of water or fiber.
do you have a sugar addiction? your body needs simple sugars for fuel. everything you eat is broken down into a simple sugar called a monosaccharide. when you deprive yourself of juicy sweet fruits your body will crave another form of sugar (desserts, candy, complex carbs). so eat plenty of sugar in the form of sweet fruits and you will find the processed sweets unappetizing.
do you have a candida problem? fat is the culprit, not sugar. a diet high in fat blocks your ability to use the sugars efficiently. does anyone wonder why fruitarians that eat around 200-300+ grams of sugar a day in fruit don't have candida? a ton of raw gourmet people struggle with candida because they eat about 40%+ of their calories from fat. that's more fat than a sad diet.
fruit is alkalizing. despite what you may think, it leaves an alkaline ash.
if you eat 96-98% of your calories from fruit and 2-4% of your calories from greens you do not need any supplementation.
our closest living relatives are the great apes. most of them are predominantly frugivores. our closest living relative, the chimpanzee eats most of their calories from fruit. the chimpanzee does eat about 2% of it's calories a day in meat but they also have the ability to break open bones with their teeth. we do not have that ability.
so all i can say now is eat more fruit! if you're not eating a fruit based diet then you are depriving yourself of optimum health.
