Ping Chan shares her Top 5 Tips for a Healthy Fruitarian Lifestyle. As a registered nurse working in the accident and emergency department in a charity hospital in Hong Kong, China, Ping could take care of all kinds of accidents and emergencies yet knew nothing about nutrition. She suffered from constipation and hemorrhoids and was forced to have painful surgery at 30 years old.
Ping moved to Melbourne in December 2003 with her family. She discovered organic gardening and learned that organic fruit tastes much better than conventionally grown fruit. Even better, Ping just jumped in to a raw food diet and put an end to all the pain in her body that had been bordering her for a decade. Ping’s health improved profoundly by her eating only fruits and vegetables. The raw food lifestyle opened up a whole new horizon for her.
1. Plant your own fruit, if possible, or go to farmers’ markets and make friends with the growers. Learn from them. Buy in bulk and organic.
2. Find your favourite fruit and eat monomeals, meaning one kind of fruit at a time.
3. Eat enough until you are fully satisfied and then trust your instincts on when to stop.
4. Move your body, stay in nature and be happy.
5. Do short fasts and have faith in yourself.
