In my opinion, one key issue to succeeding on a fruitarian diet, is faith.
If we do not have complete faith that fruitarianism is a correct path to follow, if we have fears, uncertainties, and nagging doubts, then in all likelyhood, we will fail.
There is an enormous motion, a great tide, that moves against healthy living, and as well as all the excess our bodies may be carrying, the fat and toxins and water retension, we generally also have a lifetime of brainwashing to somehow get undone, and that should never be considered an easy task.
Building faith for the fruitarian diet, involves letting go of a tremendous amount of baggage and false knowledge that has been steadily indoctrinated and pounded into us.. So cleverly that we nolonger question it.. And that is just what we need to do.
That great leap in faith requires somehow taking a step backward, and truly seeing things as they are, and not as we are told they are.
We need to continuously be open minded and questioning...
- Is bread truly the staple of life?
- Do we really need to be eating protein to make protein?
- vitamins, minerals, trace elements etc?
- Is cooking food natural?
Try seeing things as they really are, and not as we have been lead to believe them to be.
Even if you have that faith, It is still all too easy to fall victim of the scaremongering tactics of the powers that otherwise be, and even to use those nagging fears as excuses to fail and binge.. This is not so much an issue, for as long as the faith remains present, the path should too.
Be aware, be awake, be present.
