Give Yourself Clean Fuel

May 20th, 2009 5 comments

Main Idea:  A fruit based diet keeps your body running clean. 

I was amazed at the changes in my body when I switched to a fruit and tender greens diet. 

One of the first things I noticed was how clean my mouth felt after eating.  After eating fruit I usually finish my meal with some lettuce or celery.  This cleans my teeth even more. 

When I ate meat and cooked food, my mouth did not feel this clean.  Now, after eating, I just rinse my mouth with my homemade xylitol mouthwash and then floss if I need to.

Your teeth are in a softer state after eating.  I’ve read that it is best to wait 30 minutes or so after eating before brushing your teeth.  So I just rinse after eating and then brush later.  This way my teeth can remineralize and harden up before brushing.

Another benefit to eating simple fruits and greens is that your sweat will not smell as bad.  It’s really true.  Just give it a try for a while.  I’ve eaten meat and milk and spicy foods and my sweat was more “potent” when eating these foods.

With fruit your body simply runs cleaner.  It’s like using a clean fuel for your engine.

You’ll also find that the high fiber and water content of the diet keeps your bowels moving regularly.  When you do have gas, it won’t smell the same as it used to. 

Some people are embarrassed at having someone use the bathroom right after them, because of the smell.  Eating just fruit and greens will make it so you don’t have to worry about that anymore.

Don’t take my word for it.  Simply give the diet a 30-day test and see for yourself. 

Action Items: 

Experiment with some all fruit meals and discover how clean your mouth feels after.  Focus on how your body functions on this diet.  Notice your fresher breath.
