Thanks for visiting and having me as a Peacekeeper.
The following formula works well for long term health and success:
Diet in a Banana Peel
Eat a raw frugivore diet where most carbohydrates and calories come from whole raw ripe sweet and juicy fruits like oranges, papaya, or mangoes, supplemented with about ½-2 heads of lettuce greens a day (not kale, chard, and spinach) and about a handful of raw nuts or seeds a day. Eat simple meals but a rainbow of foods over a period of time.
Eat enough on a daily basis with at least 2500 calories for females and at least 3000 calories for males. Drink 2-4 quarts of water a day and pee clear. Get 8-12 hours of sleep as needed. Exercise about 30 minutes a day 5-6 days a week with at least one day off for rest and repairs. Get about 30 minutes of sunshine a day on your skin for vitamin D, mental health, eye health, and healthy bones and teeth.
For more science behind how to this diet optimally for long term success:
We need to aim for enough of the nutrients we need, not necessarily the most we can get.

What PK can do for you:
I am not a doctor, and legally, I cannot make diagnoses of diseases and conditions, neither can I prescribe medication. If you are having a medical emergency or an unknown medical condition and symptoms, please seek professional medical help. If you have questions about your prescriptions, please consult your doctor or pharmacist.
What I am qualified to do is assist with patient education. So if your doctor has already made a diagnosis, I can discuss with you your disease and symptoms, as well as what medications may have been prescribed and why.
If you are having symptoms, I can also assist you in what kind of questions to ask your doctor, and in some cases, what kind of things to ask for when going for blood work.
I am a researcher of natural health maintenance and healing, as well as a human health activist. I share with you advice that is based on personal experience, experiences of dealing with forum members, my healthcare background, and my ongoing research. However, these comments are for informational purposes only, and as stated before, if you are having a medical emergency, please seek professional help.
You are free to ask me questions in the forum and or via pm. I respect the medical protocols of confidentiality, and things asked via pm will stay private. Occasionally I reference problems people have had here @30BaD, but I do not mention member names, and I only mention those problems that have already been discussed publicly in the forum.
I may be able to help your trouble shoot any new symptoms and or digestive upsets you may be having as you start your fruity journey.
Pro bono freelance writer, researcher, and activist for animal, environmental, and human welfare.
Promote tree based permaculture for long term sustainability of both the environment, animal, and human health.
Promote a low fat raw vegan diet based on raw fruits and tender leafy greens.
For evidence of why a low fat fruitarian diet is optimum, read these free ebooks:
HEALTH & SURVIVAL IN THE 21st CENTURY by Ross Horne
IMPROVING ON PRITIKIN— YOU CAN DO BETTER by Ross Horne
In the 1970s-1980s, Nathan Pritikin promoted a low fat cooked vegan diet that was high in grains and starchy food and similar to the DrMcDougall program now. Pritikin had great success with assisting individuals with cardiovascular problems, but not necessarily other degenerative diseases such as arthritis and or cancers.
Of particular interest is chapter 10 "Grains Are for the Birds."
The author Ross Horne went on to follow a low fat raw fruitarian diet similar to what we promote here.

The China Study by T. Colin Campbell
Proves that a plant based diet is the best for human health, and uses scientific data to show the harm that animal products, dairy products, high fat, and high protein foods, even vegan, can cause to the human body.
The 80 10 10 Diet By Dr. Douglas Graham
Uses science to prove a low fat raw vegan diet based on raw fruit and tender leafy greens is optimum for human health. A comparison of human and animal anatomy proves why we are not carnivores, grainivores, and herbivores, and that humans are frugivores.
The World Peace Diet Eating for Spiritual Health and Social Harmony
By Will Tuttle, Ph.D
Explores the spiritual side of veganism, vegan compassion, and animal ethics and rights, and how what we do to animals can come back and haunt us. Thus the paradox of "As you stab, so shall you be stabbed" is explored. As humans exploit, imprison, stab and torture animals, so too do human health issues increase, resulting in bodies being probed and stabbed by the medical establishment.
Some people will not like your way of life, message, or activism, because your activism disturbs their sleep.
