List Of Fruits and Their Properties:

Do you need a list of fruits that are ideal?

Not really. They're almost universally excellent and healthy, and they provide the bulk of the calories you eat on a healthy raw food diet.

The simple sugars of fruit, in the form of glucose and fructose, fuel every cell in the body and give you the energy you need to function at your best. They are full of potassium, a key component of electrolyte balance, and provide more vitamins per calorie than any other food type.

Fruit is easy to digest, nutrient-dense, does not cause cancer or any of the other modern diseases of affluence so rife in our world, and is one of the most enjoyable things to consume. Fruit plays a key role in regenerating our cells and fighting aging, so it makes sense to make it the staple of your diet.

There are thousands of fruits, most of which many westerners have never even seen. Find whatever fruits look appealing and enjoy eating them all in as large of a quantity as your caloric needs demand.

List Of Fruits That Are Sweet:

Banana, Date, Fig, Sapote, Persimmon, Cherimoya, Carob, Mammea, Plantain, Sapodilla, Sugar Apple, etc.

Home to the banana, one of the world's most popular fruits, the sweet fruit category is full of foods high in nutrient density and posessing enough fuel to carry you through your day-to-day life and even the most intense exercise regime.

There are some amazing fruits in this category. Ever bite into a lucious ripe persimmon and feel it burst apart in your mouth?

Sweet fruit combines well with all fruits except acid fruits and melons. They also combine well with leafy greens and celery.

List Of Fruits That Are Acid:

Blackberry, Orange, Passion Fruit, Strawberry, Tangerine, Tomato (technically a fruit), Ugly Fruit, Grapefruit, Acerola Cherry, Grapefruit, Pineapple, etc

Acid fruits taste great, are usually quite high in water content, and tend to be low in calories. Anyone in a hurry to lose weight should fill up on low-calorie acid fruit like oranges and grapefruit instead of more calorie-dense fruit like bananas.

With the exception of sweet fruits, they combine well with all fruits, celery and leafy greens.

List Of Fruits That Are Subacid:

Apple, Papaya, Peach, Pear, Raspberry, Ugly Fruit, Apricot, Blackberry, Blueberry, Grape, Cherry, Mango, Mulberry, Nectarine, Tamarillo, Guava, etc

These fruit are also excellent and most are low in calories. They combine well with all nonsweet fruits as well as celery and lettuce. Eat as many as you please.

List Of Fruits That Are Melons:

Watermelon, Honeydew, Casaba, Cantaloupe, Ambrosia, Banana Melon, Canary, Gaia, Muskmelon, Rock Melon, Winter Melon, etc

Melons are delicious. There are few joys so great as devouring an entire watermelon with the juices coursing down your face as you sit in the sun; just thinking about watermelon season makes me smile. I've got some growing in my garden right now.

Many people find that melons should not be combined with other fruit to avoid "melon belly". Others have limited success combining them with certain other high-water fruits and vegetables. Be your own judge.

List of fruit that are high in fat:

Avocados, Durians, Coconuts, Akee, etc

Fats are essential to the body's ability to managing hormones and other critical functions, but they start to disrupt health when we consume them in large quantitites.

Too much fat will bring on high blood sugar levels and can lead to diabetes, candida, and many other ailments. It blocks the uptake of sugar from the blood stream into cells.

Fat is present in all fruits and vegetables, but in a low percentage for most. Eschewing overt fats, someone living on fruits and vegetables might average three to five percent of their calories from fat.

Most raw foodists, however, consume a far fattier diet. Durians are 20-30 percent fat. Avocados are 70 percent or more, depending on the variety. Coconut meat is about 80 percent fat.

These raw fats are fine in small quantities, but averaged over the course of a year they should fall into your diet in a proportion below 10 percent of total calories. Some raw foodists concentrate on fatty fruits and nuts and eat as much as 75 percent of their diet from fat, but that's a plan bound to lead to disaster. 

If you're aiming for 10 percent, how much fat you can eat and while staying under your limit will vary depending on how many calories you burn. For some, half an avocado every other day works, but others requiring a lot of fuel could eat one every day.

If overt fat is eaten, it's best to do so at the end of the day so energy is not diverted from exercise or mental tasks to digestion.
