Why Fruitarian or Low-fat Raw?
In addition to the benefits of eating raw, low-fat raw provides further benefits.
It was the optimal diet when God created mankind. "And God said, 'I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the earth, and every tree that has fruit with see in it. They will be yours for food.'" ~ Genesis 1:29 NIV
"Nutritionally, fruit comes closer to satisfying all of our needs (including of course, our desire for delicious soul-exalting fare) than any other food, as meat does for a carnivore. Fruits are replete with the nutrients our bodies require- in the proportions that we need them. Yes, some vegetables and other foods may have 'more' of a particular nutrient or class of nutrients, but fruits tend to contain the types and quantities of nutrients our bodies require. More does not mean better.
Humans are sweet seekers by nature, designed to eat sweet fruits. Tast buds on the very tips of our tongues recognize sweet tastes. Most of us are attracted to sweet fruits in their raw state, regardless of what else our culture and circumstances dispose us to eat.
When ripened, fruits accommodatingly convert their carboydrate components into glucose and fructose, simple sugars we can use without further digestion. Enzymes in the fruit convert proteins into amino acids and fats into fatty acids and glycerols. Thus, when we eat fruits, all we need do is savor their goodness." ("80-10-10 Diet")
