I'm sure they were much more active than modern-day folk, and could actually use the excess sugar. Besides, if their diets were anything like wild chimps, they'd be eatiing a lot of greens as well.

That's it! you hit the nail on the head!! what we NEED to do, is become more active!!! Look for opportunities throughout your day to be active!!

Going to the grocery store? instead of fighting for a parking stall near the door, park at the far end of the lot and walk (or jog) to the entrance.. etc.

You mean "too sedentary"? (sedate = calm) .

Being too sedentary and eating too much is part of the modern American way of life. Waht are you, a commie? :lol: :wink:

A lot of people say that they are Raw Vegan but not Fruitarian and that makes no sense at all. We all pretty much eat the same things. :wink:

This is from the Fruitarian World wide Network



There is a fast growing awareness, from millions of people worldwide, that there are much better and NATURAL ways to health than the conventional methods. Like all of us, you would probably be interested if there was a way to:
Enjoy superior health
Have amazing levels of energy
Truly enjoy life
Live without the cost of supplements and "potions"
You have within your reach the most precious jewel of true health — without which really NOTHING is of value. The key to superior health is found, very simply, in making a change in your lifestyle and diet, and move to the NATURAL, RAW, and UNCOOKED FOOD, as provided for you by Nature itself. Eating fruits and vegetables as most animals do in the wild. That simple!

What is the Fruitarian Raw Food Diet?
A typical Fruitarian eats and drinks:

Sweet Fruits: Oranges, bananas, apples, melons, grapes, papayas, berries, figs, dates, mangoes, etc.
Non Sweet Fruits: cucumbers, avocados, bell peppers, tomatoes, etc.
Vegetables: lettuces and other greens, celery, etc.
Nuts and Seeds: Sunflower and squash seeds, almonds, walnuts, soft coconut meat, etc.
Also: coconut water, juices, water, and other raw and living foods.
A Fruitarian doesn't eat:

Meat, dairy products, grain products, bread, pasta, rice, cakes, soft drinks, junk food, processed food and other cooked foods.
The Basis for Fruitarianism
Fruitarianism may appear to be a new and quite radical concept, while actually it is a revival from a very ancient way of eating, dating back millions of years. As you might imagine, our ancestors did not live on bread and processed foods, but rather on the vibrant fruits and vegetables that are available in Nature. In the early 1900's, a group called "Natural Hygienists" pioneered this revival. Natural Hygiene is a philosophy that teaches natural way of healing through diet, fasting and healthful, natural living. The Fruitarian Raw Food Diet is not a fad. Scientific proof is substantiated by intense research and studies on teeth of our earliest ancestors.

Also, according to our anatomy, our biology and physiology, we are actually "frugivores," or fruit eaters. Our whole body system is geared for the Fruitarian Raw Food Diet. Fresh, organic fruit is the most nutritionally complete food for humans, and is the best source of glucose, which is the body and brain's best fuel. Some of our Network members have been experiencing great level of health on the Fruitarian Raw Food Diet (which includes vegetables) for 5 to 50 years! Fruitarians experience superb mental clarity, physical strength and endurance, rejuvenation of youthful vitality, and renewed joy of living. Many have overcome all kinds of diseases via Fruitarianism, including all kinds of folks from children to college students to medical doctors to seniors. We are inspired to know that Leonardo da Vinci, Henry David Thoreau, and Mahatma Gandhi were mostly Fruitarians, or gearing towards that ideal, and that today there are several celebrities and professional athletes who are Raw Food Fruitarians, such as actor Woody Harrelson, singer Brian Adams and others.

The great, past Life Hygienist, T. C. Fry, wrote a beautiful essay titled: "Humans & Fruit: Symbiotic Partners In Life." Mr. Fry wrote:

"But the greatest wisdom of all, perhaps, was that which created the food package (fruit) to proportionately meet the precise needs of its eaters; those creatures who, in taking and becoming dependent on these foods, became the fruit plant's biological symbiont. That this method of seed distribution was successful is evidenced by the thousands of kinds of fruits created around the seeds in nature. Fruit attracts human senses in nature and are gourmet delights in their natural ripened state which ensures their survival. Also, fruit contains no poisons in the fresh ripened state, whereas almost all plants and seeds contain components which we cannot metabolize, hence are toxic directly or indirectly.....Fruits are the natural food of humans and the only food category ideally suited to all their faculties. This does not mean we should, in our present circumstances, eat fruit totally and exclusively, but it does mean that, in nature, that's all we ate as attested by Dr. Walker."

The Fruitarian Diet Ultimately Brings You and the Planet Great Health
A predominant Fruitarian Diet brings great benefits to our physical, mental and spiritual well being. The primary reason is that Fruit is a LIVE food! Fruit is laden with enzymes, and because of this it is already in partly pre-digested state. Fruit is ripened by the Sun and contains its energy. Fruit stays alive when picked. By eating fruit and scattering the seeds we do not destroy life — the seeds are ready for reproduction for the benefit of mankind and all other fruit-eaters in Nature!

Because a Fruitarian Raw Food Diet is very "cleansing," bringing about a detoxification and elimination process, you may well need guidance and direction. The Fruitarian Worldwide Network of combined knowledge and experience can help and support you on the Fruitarian Raw Food Path.

The Fruitarian Worldwide Community
The Fruitarian Worldwide Network brings like-minded people from all over the world together for mutual support and inspiration in the joys of Fruitarian Living. We invite you to join us on this joyous journey to a very beautiful, peaceful lifestyle of True Health on the Natural Fruit and Plant Foods from Nature!

Please enjoy browsing through our Network links. We wish you abundant health, and will love to meet you and share in the bounties of Life!

Another note on bananas:

You have to get them at the right level of ripeness, though.

I guess Dry Fruits & Nuts, Seeds are the only things that provide protein in a fruitarian diet?

That's what I meant too! :wink:

Protien is amino acid and amino amino acids are in all raw foods.

Fruit is such a perfect food. There is NO other form of food with the appeal of fruit. I don't know about you, but there is nothing I eat that I enjoy or crave more than fruit.

You ever really look at an apple? it's such a beautiful food. it LOOKS delicious, it smells delicious, do you not just want to bite into it??

nature makes it so, that we strongly desire the food which best suits us.
