Can a Raw Fruit Diet Save Your Brain From Cellular Destruction?

Did you know that glucose can protect your brain from the cell-destroying effects of glutamate and other excitotoxins? Yet another reason to eat a high-carb, sugar-rich diet.

CAN A RAW FRUIT DIET SAVE YOUR BRAIN FROM CELLULAR DESTRUCTION?

Got any fun factoids about fruit? Please share in the comments below! :)

P.S. While the best raw food diet is predominated by fruit, you must also consume tender greens like romaine, spinach, and celery if you want to thrive on raw foods. Ideally, this means consuming at least one pound of greens every day on average.

Yep, that’s right. A full 16 ounces or just over 450 grams every day.

Personally, I find eating this much greens (or more) incredibly enjoyable. I get in my greens just about every night in a humongous savory salad. Or I just eat the greens plain with some fruit, taking a bite of fruit, then a bite of greens, then fruit, then greens, and so on.

And I eat it all without any salt, spices, or other unhealthy condiments.

I know, I know, I know! That’s far too much food and far too bland without salt and spices!

Don’t worry, fellow raw foodist Roger Haeske’s got the solution…

These “stews” are full of greens and deliciousness, yet completely salt-free and low-fat! They’re absolutely perfect if you’re new to raw and can’t yet stomach the thought (or sight!) of a super big salt-free salad.

And if you can, then just do what I do and make a double batch! :)

  2. I see no scientific evidence for any benefit of eating only raw foods. Minimally processed, perhaps even organic, yes. And with no salt or other “unhealthy” condiments, it would seem to be incredibly bland and boring.

    BactGirl11, I have not found it boring so far, and, in fact, delight in it. My salad dressing is usually, if I have spinach, a juiced lemon and a juiced orange.

    There is so much variety in a High Raw diet. Oh, yes, I still get occasional hankerings for an omniverous diet (particularly when smelling take aways! They’re not called ‘junk food’ for nothing), but I just think of that too-salty taste in my mouth and I find that that has turned me off them.

  3. I avoid everything except organic fruits and vegies and very very little overt plant-based raw fats as in nuts, seeds, avocados. I am 80/10/10 all the way. It makes me sick to think of the toxic overload going on just because of the all mighty buck.

  4. Possibility of a listing of green foods, insofar as you are concerned? For example, cucumber? Courgettes (zucchini)? Rocket?

  5. where do you get vitamin b12 from?

  7. I will say that scientist have discovered that the growth in intelligence for the human brain is contributed most in part because our ancestors traveled continents and were able to consume wild game and other mammals on the go. Meat is brain food. With that said I believe veggies and fruits are better for your body’s functions but meat is responsible for the evolution of the modern human brain.

    RubberWilbur, if your mind is open, I suggest you get a different view: http://creation.com/mind-by-design-peter-line-interview

    Meat is cancer food, believe me. There are plenty of intelligent vegetarians and vegans out there who have not suffered a mental relapse despite being on a non-meat diet for many years, sometimes even for generations.

    Often, it was a case of there not being anything else available or, I believe, trying to imitate supposedly ‘superior’ animals like lions. We do have a massive ego-pride issue, all of us.

  9. Good idea! I’ll add it to my to-do list. :)

  16. thanks for the info, Swayze! Now I’m going to pound back the MSG!!!! Ramen seasoning packets for the win just got to make sure drink a banana smoothie beforehand. Whooot!!! J/K …No really that was a great find, I agree with shaadoe1 that was a hard book to read.

  18. @shaadoe1 It is a bit wordy, but I’ve read (and listened to) worse. The Blank Slate is a prime example

  22. Excitotoxins was one of the most BORING books I have read in a long time. Great information, but way to wordy.

  28. That’s very interesting! Thank you, Swayze, for sharing it. I haven’t as yet read his book (though I do have a copy) but I have a couple of his lectures on DVD and have found them fascinating. He definitely advises never to use Braggs and cautions against using tofu as well.
