I have been on a
fruit diet for the past fifteen years.
I believe that this diet has brought me joy and wellness in
every aspect of my life: the Physical, Spiritual and the Mental.
However, I believe that this diet is not some complex,
Mystical Way of Life but it is simple and logical and full of truth; available
for everyone at any time.
That is why I feel it is a very Rational Diet.
This is very important to me. Any diet should be accessible
to all with a pureness and simplicity that rings true in its sweet clarity. Not
shrouded in mystery, not a diet for only gurus. This is why I love the fruit
diet. I believe it is the Rational Diet for Humankind.
Fruit is a food that at once cleanses, but it also
Fruit also contains all the
nutrients and goodness that humans need to thrive and lead happy and healthy
One of the most important factors, for me, regarding the
fruit diet is that it is simple. There is no calorie counting, no food charts
are needed,all that is required is just good quality fruit. There is no need
for cookers, or mixers, or blenders, or pots and pans.
We can even get away
with using our fingers to eat, if this is what we prefer!
It makes sense to me that our ideal food source is one that
needs no heat treatment or other preparation, in any way. Fruit is a food we
can pick straight from the tree.
Our hands are perfectly designed to pluck fruit straight
from a tree. Our vision is fabulously full of colours, so we may spot the
fruit, nestling in its foliage, as we forage for our fruity bounty.
If you have ever watched a child eat a bunch of grapes, with
such dexterity of her tiny fingers, then you will see how natural, how
beautiful this sight is. It looks just so right, just like the way we are meant
How complex is the act of cooking, mixing and preparing
food. How simple and true is eating a ripe Mango or a perfect Peach!
The only diet, that I can think of which is rational, both
in terms of our health and in terms of sweet simplicity is the fruit diet.
No other animal , in its wild and natural form ,does any
kind of preparation to its food. This is natural and logical, we would not
expect to see other animals behave in any other way. How then can any form of
food preparation , that humans carry out, improve upon the fine way of living
that the other beautiful animals follow?
Fruit is also designed to be eaten. The tree so wants its
seeds to be spread, so the tree will put her energies into making her fruit so
luscious and appealing. Therefore it
will be her fruit that the frugivores all want to eat and so her seed will be
What other food stuff really wants to be eaten? Eat the ear
of a wheat plant and the stalk is dead with no spreading of the seed. Eat all
the leaves off a lettuce and the lettuce will die. The fruit wants to be eaten
how else will the seeds be spread.
I can find no logical reason why fruit is not the natural
food of humans , I can think of no other food we are better suited and equipped
I love the sweet mysteries of life, the slightly puzzling
synchronicitie in it, the happy coincidences.
However I also believe that the
Universe has a fine and logical order, which if followed leads to health and
happiness and a paradise here upon this Earth.
There is order and sense in Nature, there is the same sense
and order in a fruit diet.
It is not some 'Airy Fairy' or New Age diet. It is the diet
of all ages.
The Universe has great beauty in her order and it is when
this order is transgressed that we may have problems with our health and
There is a sweet and beautiful science involved in Natural
Of course fruit also tastes absolutely fantastic, which is
why it is such a joy to eat.
So fruit tastes good, it is good for our health and
well-being and fruit is also beneficial for our environment. Plus, on top of
this, a Fruit Diet makes sweet and true sense in a sometimes senseless World.
