For the largest part fruit
consists of water just like the human body does
80% of our body is water so does 80% of fruit consist of water!
think about it, it's logical for the human body to consume food that contains
as much water as the body itself. The nutrition that meets that requirement
is fruit. There is no other food than fruit on this planet that contains
on average 80% water.
also contain a lot of water and are therefore second best.
Fruit is 100% bad-cholesterol
about this argument. Too much bad-cholesterol is not good for our bodies and
fruit doesn't contain bad-cholesterol. Animal products like meat and dairy
contain a lot of bad-cholesterol.

idea that fruit is an expensive nutrition
you always think that fruit was an expensive product? Take a good look
at how much money you spend on other food. It could be worth something
to replace some of those expenses with fruit. We think that fruit is the
healthiest food on earth and therefore it is well worth spending our money
The miraculous healing
effects of fruit
Spectacular stories about
people that cured from uncurable diseases by a strict diet of raw fruits and/or vegetables
are well known but do we want to believe them? We still don't know that
much about fruit and its contents.
We do know now that a diet
with plenty of fibers helps against corpulence, high blood pressure, and
other factors that increase the chance for a heart disease. The consumed
amount of fibers maybe even a more important factor than the amount of
fat that is consumed by people!
The food that contains these
healthy (natural) fibers is.... right: fruit! (vegetables as well).
The American Heart Association
advises to consume 25 to 30 grams of fibers out of fresh fruits and/or
vegetables. In practice this means: have five to nine portions of
fresh fruits or vegetables a day. Check out the dietary Recommendations of the American Heart Association here.
makes you feel better
stories have told us about people that were frequently depressed and how
they got out of their depression slowly but surely after consuming substantial
amounts of fresh fruit on a regular basis. Eating much fruit can have
a mysterious healing effect on human beings. Even better is to drink
a lot of freshly squeezed fruit drinks on a regular basis. It
will take approximately 30 days until you start to notice the effects.
Don't forget to drink these smoothies 20 minutes before the consumption
of other meals. This way the fruit will not ferment in the stomach and
the nutritious elements can be absorbed by the blood effectively.
reasons to eat fruit
doesn't have to be killed and slaughtered before you can eat it. The fruits
are just hanging there waiting to be picked by you!
ethical argument (often used by vegetarians and vegans to not eat meat)
claims that fruit is a non-animal food. Many people see animals, especially
mammals, as living creatures just like humans. There are religions
that say that animals have souls like us. The native Americans first
asked the animal's spirit if they could kill it before they did so. Fruit
has never been said to have a soul and thus can be eaten without causing
or religious arguments aside, we think it's a shame that we as human beings
don't eat much fruit when there is such an abundant assortment of fruits
and vegetables available.
is the most natural food
you see a piece of fruit hanging from a tree that tree is telling you something:
my fruits and help me spread my seeds." Thatís how nature works.
Humans eat vegetables and fruits and consequently help the plants to spread.
Humans use animals to work the land to grow the plants and trees
that produce these fruits and vegetables. In more and more people's opinion this
is the way it was all meant to be.
A healthy diet should consist for a great deal of freshly squeezed fruit juices,
raw fruits and vegetables. Some tips:
simple as that. Before you know it you will feel much better;
to eat fruit on an empty stomach, not after other meals and;
yourself about the substances that our 'modern' food contains.
