It's loaded with fiber. It cleanses the digestive tract. It tastes great. It keeps well, and is easily transported. It fits into the palm of your hand. A full meal can be made of just a few of them. It's filling and satisfying. Yet it's low in calories! And, it's naturally delicious, WITHOUT having to be cooked or altered in any way. What's more: Studies have shown it to be the mortal enemy of one of Man's most insidious killers...
What IS this amazing fruit?
It's none other than the common apple . An underrated gem! Particularly in an age of synthetic vitamins, alleged super-foods, side-effect laced 'wonder' drugs, and purported cure alls.
A true apple story (from this morning)...
I woke at sunrise. I did a good, tough calisthenic workout: 800 squats, push-ups, and crunches - along with sprints thrown in for good measure. I followed with a relaxing run to a local fruit market. There, I loaded my back pack with apples. Then I ran home. 'Twas a good a two-hour workout. Oh yes: And I live on the ninth floor of a condominium complex with a VERY steep set of stairs. Which I leaped with ease!
In my kitchen, I mixed a green smoothie of water, two small apples and a handful of spinach. This satisfied me completely, until dinner. In fact: I normally eat just once daily in the evening. When I make apples, bananas and greens the opening course of my meal. Yet today: I ate this modest morning breakfast - simply as a test case. To make sure my claims of the apple's lasting power were well-founded. To put it mildly...
I worked all day. I did ANOTHER exercise session in the afternoon. And, I enjoyed an energy that lasted WELL into the evening. This is the type of energy a clean, high-fruit diet will give you. How is this possible? Well, I've got a theory or two on that...
The apple resembles a near-perfect food for Man. Which would be about 90% glucose (carbohydrates), 4 to 5% amino acids, 3 to 4% minerals, about 1% fatty acids, and 1% vitamins. The apple is RIGHT THERE in all of these categories. It provides everything you need for a vibrant, healthy life.
The apple is low in calories. Yet it's full of fiber. Which keeps you feeling full and satisfied. You can eat a lot of apples - WITHOUT having to worry about 'counting calories.' When combined with vigorous daily exercise? The apple's low fat, and high fiber content makes for a lean athletic body, every time.
The apple mixes well with mineral-rich greens - creating a TRUE super food. Today's fruit can be a bit low in vital minerals, compared to that of many years ago. This is due to over-farming and depleted soils. Sure, the apple is great on its own. Yet it's even better when combined into a smoothie or salad - with edible greens like spinach, bok-choy, or kale. All of which are loaded with essential minerals. Try a green smoothie. You'll get all the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and essential fatty acids you need to maintain a SUPER healthy life. And keep up a rigorous workout schedule, too.
The apple's fiber gently scrubs your digestive tract, naturally discarding built-up toxins. Eat apples. Your energy will soar! When your body isn't forced to deal with an overloaded, toxic colon? You'll be pleasantly shocked at how your overall energy increases. Eat nothing but fruits and greens for a week. Your bathroom trips will become regular. You'll free up energy for more demanding workouts. You'll sleep well. And: You'll build a wonderful, cleansed feeling from deep within. One that you may not have enjoyed in years.
Eat apples. And in all likelihood you'll reduce your risk of cancer. This makes you feel better (psychologically), to put it mildly. Research Director of the French National Institute for Health and Medical Research, Francis Raul, PhD. has shown the following: Rats exposed to cancer-causing substances develop pre-cancerous lesions when given water alone. Yet when when rats get water with apple juice? They develop HALF the amount of lesions. Now that's 'apple power.' Do studies like Raul's translate to human cases? I say emphatically, yes. Especially when you consider the case histories of Dr. Abramowski, Prof. A. Ehret, Dr. Ruth Heidrich, Dr. Lorraine Day, M.D., and others. All of whom have successfully treated 'terminal' cancer with a plant-based diet - and with a MASSIVE emphasis on fruit. Make apples a mainstay in your diet. You'll enjoy FAR more years of vibrant, healthy living. Plus: You'll feel great, in the bargain!
There you have it friends...
A food that satisfies you. Yet one that's NOT loaded with fat. One that packs easily. Which fits into the palm of your hand. One that contains nothing artificial. One that provides nearly everything you need to stay cleansed and nourished at a deep, cellular level. One that defies disease. And one that fuels workouts that'll keep you fit and athletic, at any age. Yes, if apples are NOT a true super food? Then I say...
One doesn't exist!
Thank Nature, it does.
Side note: Fruits and greens make up the overwhelming majority of the diet of some of the healthiest, strongest creatures on earth - chimps, apes, gorillas and the like. Speaking of whom are built remarkably similar to us, from the inside out. And yet: When they're not caged or corralled by Man? They lead lives of SUPREME, good health. Be more like the ape. Be less like the average couch-sitting, TV-watching, junk-food eating mass of western Man. And...
Watch your energy soar.
In short: Eat more fruit - ESPECIALLY apples. Exercise vigorously. Do calisthenics, outdoors. If desired: Swing from a tree! You'll live as Mother Nature intended. Not, as much of modern Man does - with his 'wonder' drugs, artificial concoctions, and sedentary ways. For haven't we had enough of him, and not enough of Her? I say: Unquestionably! Live naturally. Eat apples. And I'd put money on it, my friend...
Your body shall thank you.
P.S. Want to get TRULY motivated to toss junk food - and eat more fruit? Then read early 1900's Dr. Abramowski's booklet, 'Fruit Cured Me.' The good doctor lived a life of excess. He drank. He ate meat. He smoked cigars. He didn't exercise much. Yet when he finally changed his toxic ways? And when he adopted a diet of 100% fruit? He cured himself! Read all about it in his SUPERB true story, Fruit Cured Me! It's one powerful little book (under 50 pages). And when I was at my worst, physically speaking: It's one that changed my life for the better. It'll do the same for you, my friend. Read it today. You'll be inspired to get healthy. I'd stake life on it! Ok? The link...
