One: Consume only flesh fruits or juices until lunchtime.
Eating only fruit in the morning is the best breakfast for a number of reasons. First, it enables you to eat one purely raw food meal in the day, which means that without much effort you could reach a minimum of 30 percent raw foods by midday. Second, since one of the keys to cleaning our bodies is to expend our internal energy on healing our bodies, we don’t want to waste precious energy all day long on digesting the food we eat. With only twenty to thirty minutes transit time in the stomach, fresh fruit delivers energy to the body without wasting digestive energy.
This is a win-win scenario: you get to eat but you don’t have to waste energy in the stomach that would be better spent turning over new cells, healing your organs, and revving up your metabolism! The morning is also the idea time to consume fruit since, as you now know, fruit must only be eaten on an empty stomach. A good rule of thumb is to wait three to four hours after a properly combined meal before eating fruit again. If you eat flesh in your meal, however, it is best not to go back to fruit again that day. I cannot stress enough that you should never eat fruit with any other food group or even shortly thereafter.
Morning is also the time when the body is ripe for elimination. Putting concentrated food (anything other than fresh fruits and vegetables and their juices) into the body during this time puts this elimination response (our best tool in weight loss) on hold so that the body can go to the heavily laborious task of digestion. At a time when your body is actually in a mode to help you lose excess weight (eliminate waste), don’t defeat its best efforts by telling it to do something else-like digest a heavy food item or meal.
If you usually consume breakfasts of cooked, concentrated food, your body is going to expect that food tomorrow. If it does not receive that food, it is going to wonder where it is. I refer to this as “stimulation.” Missing that stimulation, your body may make some growling noises or you may experience some light cramping, which is often referred to as “hunger pains.” Of course, virtually no one in this country “USA” actually knows what it is to go hungry.
Nonetheless, let’s make it clear that you are not starving yourself or otherwise hungering. These are just signs of stimulation, and they will disappear after two to three days of eating only fruit in the morning. You should not feel light-headed because you will be getting plenty of fruit sugar into your bloodstream. Mentally you should feel very clear, while physically light and energetic. If you feel light-headed you are most likely not eating enough fruit. Feel free to eat as much fruit as you need. You might eat a cantaloupe at eight o’clock in the morning, a box of strawberries at nine, a couple of bananas at ten, and then some sliced pineapple at eleven. This would certainly be well within the range of a typical RAW FOOD DETOX breakfast. Some of you are thinking that this sounds like more than you could ever eat. Others of you can imagine yourselves easily going through this much fruit before lunch. Find the amount that works for you, and be aware that it might vary from day to day.
