You’ll learn about the benefits of a fruit based diet for yourself, and for the planet.  Here are some questions I get about a fruit based diet.

Question:  What about the four food groups?  You can’t live on just fruit.

Christopher:  Why not?  I know many people who live on fruits and green leaves.  There used to be 11 food groups.  At another time there were seven food groups.  The four food group idea was started by people who wanted to sell you milk and meat.

Luscious Fruit Smoothie - I Know You Want a Taste of It

Question:  But we don’t have enough fruit in the world to feed everyone.

Christopher:  You are right.  We’d better get started planting more fruit trees!

Question:  This would totally change our food production system.  Wouldn’t this bring about massive changes in land use?  It would require us to rethink our relationship to the land, and to each other.

Christopher:  Isn’t it wonderful.

Question:  Can we really make changes?  The food industry is so powerful.  They have the money.

Christopher:  We are more powerful.  We have the money.  We make a difference every time we shop in the produce section rather than the processed food section.

Question:  So I suppose you think that government needs to make new laws about this?

Christopher:  No, we the people need to make changes.  Real change comes from the bottom up, not from the top down.  Join me today.  Let’s restore ourselves to health and our planet at the same time.  You’ll see that the same diet works for both situations.

Question:  How do I learn more about this fruit-based diet?

Christopher:  Just sign up for the newsletter over on the right.  Then start reading the chapters (blog posts).  Come visit soon for more.

Question:  Where do you get all your great photos?

Christopher:  I get them from my friend Sun Star at SunStarPhoto.com.

    Brilliant idea, Christopher;-) I love your ‘arguments’ – they’re just so simple and so logical. Coincidentally, I have recently come to the conclusion that my body is ‘clogged up’ and so have started eating more fruit and drinking more water. Too early to report lasting changes, but it’s encouraging to know that others are thinking similar thoughts… People like us can change the world – one piece of fruit at a time. If we stop buying the ‘rubbish’, they’ll have to stop producing it.

    Thanks Marian.

    I’ve lost ten pounds in my first ten weeks on the Diet. My body is running more efficiently and it feels so good to lose that extra fat.

    Great network – Chris. Good timing.

    the principles and concept are ancient.
    I have been on this diet a 100%raw diet for 40 years now and it is a testimony unto itself

    I have watched the raw diets proliferate into sports and athletics and even bodybuilding.
    And with a return to a raw diet not so focused on expensive and questionable “super-foods” rather than the evolutionary food fruit we have a more rational and now researched reason to add fruit (organic!) back to the diet.

    Thanks for the bringing back the “perinneal philosophy”

    Yes, I think this is the most vital part of what you have to say here…

    “This would totally change our food production system. Wouldn’t this bring about massive changes in land use? It would require us to rethink our relationship to the land, and to each other.”

    Plus, how very true – “Real change comes from the bottom up, not from the top down.”

    Thanks Christopher. Love your new blog.

    hello from beautiful Montana:

    Hmmmmmm, this gives new meaning to Artichoke Press.

    Our daughter likes to eat raw, but we have always been meat and potatoes, but both feel sluggish and low energy. When Eben Pagan said he eats raw too, it got me thinking how smart he is about other things, so maybe he is on the right track here too.

    Perhaps we should head for the natural food store or Craig’s List and take a look at the juicers. We were going out for an ice cream at Dairy Queen anyway.

    See you soon,

    Raw is GREAT!!! Be SURE that its organic (not necessarily certified – a look in the eye is worth far more than any government-owned word), and from naturally improved soil. Many soils across the globe are dangerously deficient in selenium (as well as many other minerals) – and pills don’t cut it.

    Digestion in the gut is the only way to increase selenium production at present, it is an ‘essential nutrient’ that has been lost through conventional farming techniques over the last 80 odd years, and the fewer animals, the less selenium in the manure.

    Fruitarian – interesting concept, however, from the very beginning of recorded time, people have been hunting to supplement their diet. They didn’t have pictures of apples and raisins on cave walls, and the few pictured in Sumeria and Egypt were accompanied by wine and beer jugs. Even the Buddhist and Hindu monks were not strict vegetarians, and we are talking taking the diet a leap, not a small step further. Does this diet replace fat-based vitamins with pills? Still need the fat in the diet for absorption.

    Studies from all over the globe have shown that people who eliminate meat not only die of cancer more frequently (for a good case in point, study Linda Goodman who became a fruitarian in the late 70′s early 80′s), are prone to younger more violent causes of death, tend more readily toward ADHD, Altzheimer’s and various other mental disease, and finally are more likely to suffer chronic diseases from Chron’s to arthritis.

    Goats and cattle were the first animals to be domesticated, and since that time people have been growing their own meat and milk – for tens of thousands of years.

    That is hardly people marketing for meat and milk consumption in the modern world.

    What HAS happened, at least in the last century (give or take 20 years) has been the industrialization of farming. The addition of synthetic chemical fertilizers, the addition of pesticides, the more brutal methods of tilling soil, the intensive mono-cropping of both animals and produce, and since the 1996 introduction to the US food chain of GMO crops has severely diminished the quality of the foods we eat.

    The addition of fluoride (used in Nazi Germany and the USSR to mollify the people and reduce aggression) in the drinking water is another problem, as is the indiscriminate use of soy in everything from infant formula to popsicles.

    Soy is one of the top 10 food allergens known on the planet. Incidence of allergies have increased as the use of Bt Soy has increased. Tripsin inhibitors are not properly dealt with (requiring long periods of rotting and fermentation – hence oriental use of natto, soy sauce and miso, but refusing to feed raw or cooked beans or even plants to so much as livestock until American sources made it vogue).

    Soy is a complete protein ONLY after lacto-fermentation has taken place. Tripsin inhibitors not only render the protein in the soy bean indigestible, but also any other protein ingested within 24 hours!!

    Further, the body requires cholesterol in order to repair itself, and with 70% of the soy being GM in the United States, protein is another issue. I would suggest checking with the companies that make the soy products used as to if they can guarantee we are not consuming endemic pesticides (which stay in the body, thereby causing our own cells to produce these pesticides).

    The absorbtion of diet-based cholesterol is only about 25%. Serum cholesterol – for which Big Pharma earns BILLIONS every year on its pills to reduce – is a sign that the body is moving cholesterol to where it is needed, NOT that you are going to get “hardening of the arteries” or have a heart attack. Period. End of story. What causes heart attacks and artheroschlerosis has been known for decades – and that is triglycerides. These come from trans fats, not natural sources such as beef fat and bones, chicken fat etc (though commercial sources have other problems).

    The ONLY major food producer currently that says they source non-GMO ANYTHING is Heinz, and though their products are mainly fruit and veggie based, it is a far cry from this. While they source non-GMO – even they cannot guarantee any single product to be GMO free. Organic, at least in the United States, is a bigger joke than a free communist country.

    Further, the world wide use of pesticides – far more on fruit than any other crop – is another concern. The answer to this is to grow your own. There are three problems with this. First, dwarf trees can provide wholesome fruits, and edible landscaping is a passion of mine, but unless you have a few acres, feeding yourself (even ONLY fruit) is nearly impossible for a family of 3. Secondly, sourcing organic supplies to keep the fruit trees healthy as well as productive is not only a learning curve, but also expensive. The learning curve on proper pruning techniques is a bit easier. Finally, in the US, HR875 and HR 759 have the capability of regulating those home-grown foods – livestock, veggie OR fruit if not actively opposed and finally defeated.

    When deciding on a permanent diet, one needs to understand several things, and the most basic of those is that the body, its cells and all we put into it are mainly pieces of a puzzle. The SHAPE of those pieces generally determines the value or harm a substance will cause. Trans-fats “ghost” natural fats, but have different atoms – which is why they cause a problem. The shape of a water molecule determines whether or not your body will benefit.

    The second thing is history. If you know the history of food production, you can EASILY trace where todays health problems, including heart disease, cancer and diabetes, as well as obesity, altzheimer’s and other diseases come from. You can also then easily see what foods to avoid.

    The third thing, at least in the US, is to understand that the USDA and FDA couldn’t care less about the health of consumers – and one look at the current version of the food pyramid would tell anyone that. Corporate sponsors of both research and government policy have created the farce of the century through those two agencies (and the government in its ULTIMATE wisdom has decided to come up with another agency rather than deal with the problem as usual).

    Even Rinpoche was not vegetarian for his entire life, and he died eating nettles…

    Fruitarian diets are superb as a short- to mid-term method of regaining lost vigor and correcting other health problems, but as a permanent diet not so much. That said, eating fruit and leaves is FAR HEALTHIER than 99% of the dietary choices out there these days. Evolution is not going to catch up to the idea any time soon, but it is still far safer to eat this way and live to 70 or 80 than it is to trust the corporations to feed us meat and chemicals which have shortened the life-span in this country to less than 70 years again.

    A final note –

    People living in 1860 were more than 3 times as likely to live to age 100 than we are today – IF – they managed to survive war and child-bearing. They ate meat and drank FRESH (raw) milk.

    I agree that grass fed meat and milk is far ahead of factory farm outputs. I’ve been reading Michael Pollan’s book The Omnivore’s Dilemma and he talks about what happens in the feedlots. That alone is enough for me to avoid meat.

    I also agree that the USDA and FDA do not have our health interests in their interests. Weston Price did some great work and I have researched his book and website. He showed the health giving nature of the unprocessed foods. However, I disagree with his conclusion that we need animal products. Most of the primitive cultures he studied had some animal products, but not large amounts.

    Yes, we need information on crop yields for different fruits and I’m working on that. We do need fats, but fruit and leaves supply all we need. Cows and Elephants and Gorillas need fat also and they get it all from grass (for the cow) and fruits and leaves.

    Dear Christopher,
    Good for you and everybody who eats RAW! Two resources of particular interest (out of many) to refer to are: Charlotte Gerson’s “The Proven Nutritional Program for Cancer and Other Illnesses”….and HallelujahAcres.com, where Rev Malkmus has
    been eating raw for over 33 years and has “cured” himself of cancer among other things. Animal products, processed foods, chemical additives just aren’t good for you in the long run. And beware of pesticides, too. Eat organic if you can. You have nothing to lose but your health…which is why so many people face being over-weight and being ill. We have a choice. We need to make it…or face the possible (probable) consequences. Before the Fall, Adam and Eve ate Raw. It’s due time we returned to the Garden of Eden and eat as we were intended to. Hey!
    Even that “Apple” is good for you! Thanks for listening!!

    Dear Christopher,
    One other thing I forgot to mention: Cancer can only survive in an “acidic” environment. Eating raw, in most cases, creates an “alkaline” condition in your body…thus avoiding most ilnesses. Check out the ph of the foods you eat. Fruit and vegetables (raw) win out! Enough said!

    Way to go Christopher! I have been a subscriber to your newsletters for some time now and have been keeping up with many of the changes in your life. I have also had many changes. I have tried many times to be raw, but can never manage to stick to it. I have been involved with the raw food community for many years and try to eat mostly raw. My best friend was raw for several years and lost weight, got rid of her asthma, allergies etc. She is struggling to get back to it. Its a long story. Anyway good for you. I hope this wipes out your Lyme disease. That’s what you have right? I suffer from Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndromes. I have been unable to work for several years & live on Disability. I have started my own online business with advice from you & your associates on starting a business on a shoestring. I have a website and a product. I am working on more. I have a very limited niche. But am working on expanding my interests in this electronic market.

    Get your fruit and leaves home grown, local, or organic. Do the best you can.

    100 percent raw is ideal, in my opinion, but it’s best not to be rigid about it. Boiled veggies are very good if you want them. Think of better and best choices, not good and bad.

    If we ask nature about milk, every other mammal species drinks milk while young and then does not drink milk after weaning. Certainly we don’t “need” to drink the milk of another species to get proper nutrition.

    Yes, we need more organic fruits and vegetables. I’m going to plant some more of my own this afternoon!

    Hi Christopher!

    Nothing is by chance. I was just fed up with the food I’ve been eating in the last year and was ready to change…again. I only needed some kind of support and then I came across your email. Thanks!
    I’ve been in this diet business for almost 40 years already, passing through, probably, all of them. From macrobiotic to 21 days fast (Living on light – Jasmuheen). I love to be on fruits and raw leaves. I would add the guidance of tibetan monks, who recommend to eat one kind of food at a time in order that the digestion system don’t get confused as each food contains a specific information to be absorved (Peter Kelder – Fountain of Youth & Renato Rasiko – Secrets of Rejuvenation).

    I wish and hope you’re already free from your Lyme disease.

    Christopher, this is a wonderful idea you have put in place. This is the way to get information from many people across the Globe and create a Food Revolution.

    I too have been looking at what I eat more closely and have for some years greatly reduced my meat intake and grow what I can at home in a limited space and have discovered that it is quite satisfactory growing some vegetables in containers. In fact a friend grows potatoes in an old wheelbarrow.

    Have also discovered a marvelous tonic called Floradix (distributed by Red Seal in New Zealand), a german product, totally organic with many goodies in it. Actually felt it moving inside!! And it has made a great difference to my energy levels.

    Keep up the good work.

    Hi Christipher,

    I agree and have found the raw diet does work, although I have some clients that when very ill had to eat a bit of cooked food as the detox was too great and the blood pressure fell too low by week two.
    Also good, especially during the transition when one was used to meat protein is BioSuperfood (a greens food at optimumchoices.com) as this has been known to heal cancers, many imbalances and especially known to assist in healing from lymes. I just like it for the extra energy.

    Thanks Christopher for all you do.

And, are you still dealing with Lyme Disease?Or has it returned? Well, I too am going to raw foods again and this time I intend to make it stick come hell or high water…..my lady friend has been raw for about 5 or 6 years now and it has totally changed her life. BYW, have you seen the new “Raw For 30 Days” DVD? It is a mini-documentary of Gabriel Cousens and his Tree of Life Rejuvination Center and their newest successes with taking people with Diabetes off insulin and all their medications within a month — It’s very well done, even emotionally moving — Any suggestions for not losing great amount of weight on a raw diet? Every time I’ve done it (several times for a month or so) I have lost 25 to 30 pounds (and that’s with eating lots of avocados)…… OK, signing off here, much good will to you! Robert Kelaghan

    We should be very carefull. You just can not go RAW or on fruits. I had an attack of Hypo Netremia two months back, beccause I tried to go total RAW. The sodium contects in my blood became very low. I ended up in Intesive Care unit of the Hospital for few weeks. I lost memory and sense of direction on the road. Doctors immediatly put me on normal diet, including, meat, eggs, fruits, vegitables and milk products and high salt diet. I am now in the process of recovery. My experiment proved very dangourus and costly. ……….. Be carefull ………

    Thanks for contributing. Some people may want to start slow, like doing raw fruit breakfasts for a while and then doing more if they want.

    But many people have gone 100 percent raw all at once and have loved it. You do need to get really healthy produce grown in fertile soil to do well on the raw diet.

    I certainly wouldn’t say the diet your doctor put you on is normal. Average maybe, but not normal. We are not equipped to be carnivores and it’s certainly not natural or normal to drink the milk of another species once you are weaned.

    Mitch Reply:

    To say it is not natural or normal to drink milk of another species after weaning
    is absurd. We as humans developed an intelligent brain that allowed us to devise
    ways to source new nutritional resources. A lion doesn’t have the notion to look at
    another animal and wonder about the milk. Try putting a large vat of ANY species milk
    out, NO animal will drink it?? I highly doubt it. We as humans also can choose to drink it or not.
    I personally know people who can’t drink milk, but I happen to think it is great.

    I have no problem with someone choosing to avoid milk, but I have a huge problem
    with promoting milk as evil, unnatural etc.

    Make your own choices, but don’t ‘make up’ ‘facts’ about stuff.

    If anyone has a link to a scientific study of merit, that proves milk is unnatural
    please forward or post.

    cocktail of fruits. Also it is more advantageous to eat the whole fruit rather
    than their juices. Good luck on your new venture and i shall always watch for

    Several people have mentioned the mono diet (one fruit at a time) as being the ideal. I usually have lots of smoothies but lately have been just eating a melon, or a few mangos for a meal. It does seem easier on the body and somehow more powerful.

    I think smoothies are helpful for lots of people, but they should experiment with a mono diet also. I don’t always have just one fruit for a meal, but I do eat one at a time. I may eat a couple mangos, and then a couple of bananas, and then finish off with some lettuce.

    Help! I was successful as a fruitarian for about three weeks – felt great and lost weight. But I had to live on apples, oranges and grapefruit. Unfortunately, here in South Central Texas, we don’t grow a lot of fruit – just peaches (in season) and grapefruit (all year round).

    After three weeks, I couldn’t stand the thought of any more citrus fruit. Is there some way around this “lack of fruit” situation. Even the fruit shipped in has been picked green and chemically ripened enroute. They taste like cardboard!

    Ideas, anyone?

    Yes, it’s not as fun when you don’t have a variety of good fruit. We can get more fruit by:

    1. Growing your own. Plant a big garden with melons and berries and grapes. Plant some fruit trees.

    2. Buying more fruit at the stores, and talking to your produce managers. I got my local store to carry
    two types of mangos now rather than just one! If we increase our demand, the farmers will increase the
    supply.

Have not always followed thru until started having problems with Fibromyalgia,got a lot of advice from my father (always into his health),this is some advice I always remember from him,Live food is a live body,dead food is a dead body,Fruits are better than vegtables(thou leafy greens and other veggies are still great and should be eaten seperately for better digestion)Take whole food vitamins,filtered water,we need minerals in our soil,Enzymes are important,so are all the different body flushes,colon,liver,kidney etc…Iam not to sure how often. I just now are starting to look into more of this.Grow your own foods if possible(at the very least for our own knowledge of self preservation)And a healthy body creates a healthy mind.Also organic is best.These are the ones that stand out the most.I am sure most people know most of this,as I am learning it takes time to adapt EVERY-BODY is different.My dad’s yard is covered in fruit trees!

    In my opinion, most people on raw food eat way too many nuts. I sure did the first time I ate raw for three years. According to the 80/10/10 Diet by Douglas Graham, fats should be kept to ten percent of calories. That’s not very much!

    I agree with him, and my body seems to do much better on low-fat raw.

    I know. Here in America also, some people have fruit trees and they just let the fruit drop on the ground. The fruit from their own yard is the freshest and most full of life. Most people enjoy it, of course, but some don’t even think of it as food unless it comes from the store.

    Aramaic was the language Jesus spoke. This gospel is purportedly a sermon given by Jesus, in which he talks about living food and natural ways of healing. It is believed to be written approx. 1700 years ago, or about 300 years after Jesus’ death.

    Whatever one wants to eat, one can make an argument for that. My own belief is that a person will tend to eat the foods that vibrate at his or her frequency.

    I was remarkably (light years) better, and completely different, during the short time that I was on a raw foods diet. I avoided surgery for a uterine fibroid by going raw, and fasting on raw juices. Afterward, I remained vegetarian; I did not remain strictly on raw foods, but would like to go in that direction.

    Glad to see that you’re back on this train. When you temporarily denounced the raw food movement while trying to find the source of your illness, I was quite disappointed. Now, you’ve returned to your senses. I’m glad; you have a lot to offer in this realm. After all, you do hold a Ph.D. in Holistic Nutrition, correct?

    Kudos.

    Nelson –

    Yes, I was very sick and didn’t know what else to do. I would still say that the high-fat version of the raw diet is not healthy, and unfortunately that’s what I did before. I didn’t know fat was even an issue, but now I do! Fruits and green leaves and a few veggies feels so much better.

    I have a Naturopathic Degree from the Clayton School of Natural Healing.

    Hi Christopher,

    I’ve tried the Earth diet as the 10 day Challenge after coming away from an Anthony Robbins seminar 6 years ago. I was totally stunned to find how my health was defined in a whole new dimension following this. Your health literally glows…you really feel ALIVE!

    Thanks for being part of this promotion of health that goes beyond the Traditional Food Groups :))).

    BTW I loooove iCreate Reality! The AudioBook + my iPod = Winning Combination!

    Best,

    Nick.

    The whole point of Paleo is that we live longest and best when our diet and activities are in harmony with what our genes demand. We know that very little has changed with our genome in a few thousand years, but our diet is completely different. By returning our nutrition to those standards; whole foods, grass fed meat, nothing refined, low sugar, natural fats, good sleep, low stress, we stand the best chance of having good health and long life.
