compassion is beautiful

Once people spend time with farm animals in a loving way … a pig or cow or a little chicken or a turkey, they might find they relate with them the same way they relate with dogs and cats. People don’t really think of them that way because they’re on the plate. Why should they be food when other animals are pets? I would never eat my doggies. 
Nothing’s changed my life more. I feel better about myself as a person, being conscious and responsible for my actions and I lost weight and my skin cleared up and I got bright eyes and I just became stronger and healthier and happier. Can’t think of anything better in the world to be but be vegan.

I heard a Krishna Consciousness guy in a YouTube video ask ‘How can you expect to be saved if you eat meat?’ I became terrified of having to ‘answer’ for all of the suffering that I was causing for animals and immediately stopped eating meat.

I’ve been vegan for 15 years, and it turns out it makes a very big impact on the environment to eat fewer animal products, which cause more greenhouse gases than all of transportation combined. The United Nations did a study just over two years ago, and that blew my mind. I started thinking that if people are vegetarian for just one day a week, that makes a huge difference!

The beef industry has contributed to more American deaths than all the wars of this century, all natural disasters, and all automobile accidents combined. If beef is your idea of “real food for real people,” you’d better live real close to a real good hospital.

I’ve been vegan all my life for ethical reasons, and I’m saddened that more people aren’t educated in this way of life that my parents taught me. I don’t think anybody eats stuff like burgers and dairy products out of maliciousness but as a result of ignorance and lack of awareness. As a child I was sheltered. I was tutored at home most of my life but I clearly remember going to school for third and fourth grade, when our family [there were five siblings, including the actor River Phoenix] would show up with a soya ice-cream container that my mom had washed and put our lunch of blue corn chips and tofu salad into and everybody would be, like, ‘what are those!’ I didn’t realise that everybody else was eating baloney sandwiches.

In terms of health problems and serious diseases, dairy is the number one culprit. Going vegetarian is not enough to protect your health—go vegan!

Veganism is a logical choice. But Fruitarianism is the healthiest form of veganism. There are countless benefits, both to the person eating a Fruitarian diet, and for the world we live in.

I eat about 90% of my calories from fruit. The other 10-15% come from vegetables, all raw of course. I don’t eat nuts or seeds almost ever and for this reason I easily find the best definition of my diet as Fruitarianism. The longer I eat this way the more and more I just eat fruit, soon I think I will only eat fruit if I continue to have optimal health.

 

There are endless benefits from eating a Fruitarian diet, and I continue to notice new ones all the time. Some of the most immediate benefits that I noticed in the first few weeks were the following:

Body odor: I literally did not have a smell. My clothes at the end of the day didn’t have an odor.


Skin/hair: I noticed that my skin and hair were not oily; my skin was not dry, either.


Body fat: I lost considerable body fat in the first few weeks, yet my energy level was very high.


Vision: My sight was sharper; I could see better at a distance. I actually noticed this very real change.


Mucus: I didn’t have any mucus in my throat or nose; my sinus passages were extremely open.


Digestion: I wasn’t ever tired after a big meal (of fruit), as I always experienced when eating cooked food.


Ear wax: I noticed that when I cleaned my ears after a shower, almost no wax was present anymore.


Smell: My sense of smell improved. Cooked-food smells became highly intensified.


Taste: I noticed improved sense of taste; I was more sensitive to small differences in the same type of fruit.


Nails: My toenails used to have flaky scaling; my nails become very clean and and new looking.


Illness: When my kids and wife were ill with viral colds, I didn’t notice any cold symptoms as I was expecting.


Lighter: When I woke in the morning I would feel light when I got out of bed, fresher.


Elimination: Bathroom visits became fast, efficient, and effortless.


Exercise: I almost immediately saw improvements in my running efficiency; I was running faster.


Sweating: My sweat did not smell. When sweat would go in my eyes it did not burn, nor did it taste.


Teeth: I did not have a film buildup on my teeth like I normally experienced on my old diet.


Cravings: I stopped having the intense feelings of I have to eat something now! Strong hunger stopped.


Simplicity: Mentally I freed up a large part of my day that normally was devoted to planning meals.


Mental clarity: I absolutely noticed that I no longer daydreamed or had any brain fog at work.


Positive attitude: I noticed that my personality and mood became very stable.


I noticed these many small but very significant changes soon after adopting a strict Fruitarian diet. More substantial changes continue to occur in my health and athletic abilities the longer I maintain this diet and lifestyle.

"Because you know it’s wrong … because eating fish [& dairy] doesn’t make you vegetarian." There’s a reason we feel guilty: because eating animals goes against our instincts to preserve our species. If you want to feel better, start by treating animals better. 

We have the science to suggest that if you can make three changes -– give up all meat, all dairy, and refined foods including free oils — you can avoid dying from cancer and heart disease. It’s being brought to life in a new documentary called Forks Over Knives. I saw it, I loved it, and I need all of you to see it too. This could be the Hail Mary of medicine.
