Get the Sugar Out of the Diet, YES also Fruit

by Paul Nisson, via his paulnison.com newsletter, (p.s. contrats to Paul on his recent marriage to wife Andrea)

For the last 11 years or so I’ve been eating a raw food diet. Out of the many people I’ve interviewed who have been eating a raw food diet over the years, some are doing great, but some are not. In fact, some of the people I have interviewed died! As I say in my lectures, food is not the only thing that affects our health, but it is sure a big part of it. The most knowledgeable person I have met over the years when it comes to health and the body is Dr. Fred Bisci. Dr. Bisci, along with Ann Wigmore, Arnold Ehret, Brian Clement, Victoris Kulvinskas, Gabriel Cousins, and many other great pioneers of health all agree that when it comes to diet, we are getting ourselves in trouble by eating way too much sugar.

Of the few people I have met or heard about who teach over eating on foods that have a lot of sugar, I don’t see any of them doing as well as the people who I mentioned above. In fact, there are a few people telling people to over eat on fruit and this is very dangerous. I meet so many people who are hurt by doing this. If any one tells you it is o.k. to over eat on fruit, PLEASE don’t listen to them.

I was told the same thing and I felt great at first. But the reason I felt great was not because I was eating fruit but because I was leaving all the bad stuff out. As I got cleaner, the affects of all the sugar took its toll.
I wish years ago I wasn’t so stubborn and would have listened to all the people who warned me of the dangers of eating too much sugar. But now I did listen. Before I talk about anything I confirm it by three ways. First I see what the Bible says. In the Bible it says not to over-indulge in anything, including food. In other words, don’t over eat. The second way is what does science say about it? I’ve spent too much time with people teaching the raw food diet who just give their ideas with out having any understanding about the human body and health. Now I do the research and I have found that nothing ferments quicker than sugar. And last I apply it to myself before trying it.

Recently I have given up all sugar. I am doing this based on the program in the book “The PH Miracle” I highly suggest everyone read that book.

The results are in. I feel better than I have ever felt and for the first time I’m realizing first hand why so many people have a hard time with the raw food diet. Too many people are eating too much sugar and not enough green foods. Next month I will talk about getting more greens, but eating more sugar to do that is not the answer. We must all cut down on the amount of sugar we are eating if we want to experience health. Remember, there is a big difference between “Feeling Better” and “Being Healthy.”

Please understand I am not saying we should not eat fruit. I am saying we must not over eat fruit. No one has ever gotten sick from eating fruit. It’s over eating on it that is the issue. Also we must understand that sugar comes also from starches, flour and breads, pasta and things like that. We must also reduce those products if we are eating them.

In my new lecture I talk about all this and I am currently working on a book on the topic. I am excited to get this information out. If you have heard me speak before please come see me again for this new information I present. I am currently on a book tour and will be traveling across the U.S. All the lecture dates can be viewed on my website www.Paulnison.com Until next month… stay healthy, happy, and RAW!!!
