The Raw Food Choice: Nuts Or Fruit?

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

Are you going to eat fatty foods or fruit?

Given that vegetables alone cannot supply our caloric needs, we need to choose one or the other if we’re not going to starve eating a raw diet.

So what happens when you choose fat?

Lauren Knowles gives us a great example. She writes:

“I am a raw foodist but eat seeds and some nuts. What should I eat for protein? AS I am hungry if I just eat greens. I do have candida very badly and I am always watching sugar intake. I do not eat fruit at all.

Please advise.”

Those that try to avoid fruit and just eat fat for their calories tend to run into blood sugar issues, particularly candida.

Luckily, plenty of studies outlined the proper course for stabilizing blood sugar levels through dietary improvement.

When you choose a low fat raw vegan diet that promotes not only stable blood sugar, but overall high levels of health, life starts to get a lot better.

Tired of the yeast? Many raw foodists and would-be raw foodists are plagued by yeast problems caused by the genus candida.

Overgrowths of candida often make you field “yeasty,” tired, and not like yourself.

People blame the sugar, but they’re confusing causes with fuel.

Find Out What Causes High Blood Sugar With This Simple Test

Friday, December 31st, 2010

One of the oddest parts of the raw food movement is that a section of its adherents demonize fruit, perhaps the most natural, human-ideal food we could consume.

Many blame the fact that it “floods the body with sugar,” raising blood sugar levels. Now, high blood sugar levels do indeed lead to all kinds of problems, including the raw foodist’s bane, candida, as well as type two diabetes and other conditions. But fruit is not the cause of high blood sugar.

I explain in this article exactly how sugar moves through the body on a healthy diet, and how high fat intake “gums up the works,” and slows sugar processing to a crawl, raising blood sugar levels.

It is in this environment that candida, which feeds off sugar, moves in and makes people feel like crap.

But I don’t want anyone to take my word for it, or rely on the wealth of studies going back to 1927 that have connected high-fat diets with elevated blood sugar levels, which I cite in my article.

There’s a very simple way you can test this for yourself.

Go out to the nearest drug store and pick up a glucometer, the same type used by diabetics to monitor their blood sugar levels, and a some test strips.

Do a week of each of the following diets, testing a few times a day to see how things change depending on when you last ate, when you exercised, etc. Don’t start testing until the third day of each diet, as fat takes awhile to build up and clear out of the blood stream. You can easily figure out if you’re eating the right amount of fat by using a free website like nutridiary.com.

1) High Fat: Make sure you’re taking in at least 40 percent of your calories from fat. Depending on what your caloric intake is, you might take in 40 percent of your calories from fat from 3 avocados, a bunch of nuts, etc. Nutritidary gives you the specific amount of calories that come from fat when you enter in all the foods you’ve eaten. Be as precise as you can be. Record your blood sugar levels and how you feel.

2) Low Fat: Now keep your percentage of calories from fat below 10 percent. Basically avoid all avocados, oils, nuts, seeds, meat, dairy, eggs, or other fatty foods. Eat all the fruit and vegetables you like with no worries about blood sugar.

I’ve done this test on myself multiple times. My blood sugar on the high-fat diet is always high, while always normal on the low-fat diet.

I hope you guys do this test and figure out for yourself how your body handles fat and sugar.
