Fruit Nutrition Is
The Key To Vibrant Health
Whether you're a raw
foodist or just looking to eat healthier, fruit
nutrition can can change your life.
Fruit is the food most suited to meeting the
nutritional needs of the human body, and an analysis
of fruit proves that the desirable qualities we want
from our food are all found in within.
Sugar, our fuel, water, the great cleanser and mover
of the body, and vitamins and minerals, which the
body needs to maintain itself, are all found in
fruit in perfect quantities.
Minerals, which the body needs to maintain
itself, are all found in fruit in perfect
fuel, whatever state that we eat it in, must be
converted to simple sugars to be used by the body.
The body labors to convert fatty foods like meat and
starchy foods like rice into sugars. It can be hours
before this food is converted into a usable form.
Ripe fruit, however, is made up of glucose and
fructose sugars, which the body immediatly
assimilates with virtually no digestion. Every
cell in our body needs lots of sugar to function,
so it make sense to deliver it in a form you can
use off the bat.
Fruit averages about 98 percent water, taking
care of most of your water needs.
It provides the highest percentage of vitamins
per calorie, with vegetables coming in second.
Fruit only comes in second in terms of minerals
per calorie, with vegetables taking first place.
Fruit averages between 5
and 10 percent of calories from protein. Even
mothers milk, which fuels the body at the time
it's growing the fastest, is slightly under 10

rapidly growing baby, it's perfect for an adult.
Almost every cancer research organization in the
world is supportive of the consumption of fruit.
You can, like myself, get most of your calories
from fruit and be extremely healthy. If not, just
eat as much as you like and enjoy it.

favour compared with the products of
nature, the living cell of the plant,
the final result of the rays of the sun,
the mother of all life."
Reverse Fruit Nutrition: What isn't in
The other aspect of fruit nutrition is what isn't in
fruit. Fruit is free of cholesterol. The body can
produce its own cholesterol, and needs none from
outside. The consumption of extra cholesterol leads
to heart disease and clogged arteries.
Raw fruits do contain some fat, but not nearly
the high amounts found in most dishes.
The more fat you have in your bloodstream, the
harder it is for your body to absorb the simple
sugars it needs. Sugar trapped in the bloodstream
causes candida, chronic fatigue, and other
disorders. Oxygen movement is also impeded by fat,
which is never a good thing.
Fruit lacks certain minerals found in vegetables,
and so leafy greens are needed for proper
The Conclusions We
Can Draw From Fruit Nutrition
It is abundantly clear that fruit is fruit is suited
to be the chief food of man, though we certainly
need leafy green vegetables as well.
You can make such raw foods the entirely of your
diet, or just decide to ratchet up your level of
healthy be increasing consumption to some degree.
You might want to start off with the ultimate
breakfast, if you're in that camp.
