FREE EBOOKLET http://www.sweetnaturalliving.com We eat to provide nutrients and fuel for our body, and if the food we eat do not provide us with what we need, we’ve got a problem!
Many raw fooders try to eat a raw food diet based around low quality, low calorie fruits, and it rarely works. The thing is, we need fuel, and our body prefers that fuel to come in the form of easily digestible carbohydrate, but along with that carbohydrate comes water. Water is an essential nutrient for sure, but there comes a point where it gets difficult to fit enough calories into our stomachs due to the high water content.
As an extreme example, no matter how many cucumbers we eat, we simply cannot fit enough of them into our system to achieve the necessary amount of fuel – measured in calories. They are to calorically light.
If we were to eat pure oil on the other hand, a highly refined product, our caloric needs would be met on a VERY small volume and we would not be satisfied. Part of satiation comes from filling our stomach with a certain volume of food. Oil is too calorically dense!
As you can see, we’re looking for something right down the middle, something that will provide us with the calories we need to stay active and healthy, while also filling our stomachs. Not too much, not too little – juuust enough!
Most sweet tropical fruits like mangoes, bananas and papayas fit this description perfectly. We can easily meet our needs with those foods. Temperate fruits like apples and pears on the other hand, can sometimes be tricky. You’ve got to learn for yourself.
Just remember – if it ain’t sweet it’s wont do the job!
