The Fear of Fruit by Frederic Patenaude

“Don’t eat too much fruit!”

“Fruit is fine as long as you stick to apples, grapefruit, berries and other fruits with a lower sugar content.”

This is what we hear from many health authors these days.

What’s up with the fear of fruit? Is it true that we should be careful with the sugar in fruit?

Should We Avoid Hybridized Fruits and Vegetables by Frederic Patenaude

Check out all the great discount offers below on health products from Frederic Patenaude. Please do not delay, as the prices are subject to change at any time.

Should We Avoid Hybridized Fruits and Vegetables by Frederic Patenaude

I recently received the following question from a reader:

“How do I buy fruits and vegetables that are closest to the way our ancestors ate them? I don’t want to be eating these hybridized apples and giant unnatural strawberries, etc. How do I go back to finding original types of fruits before they were altered? How and what should I be shopping for? I trust my instincts, but my instincts tend to push me away from the extremely sweet, weird-tasting new fruits. What should I shop for and where should I be buying? I live in Illinois.”

This is an interesting question, and my answer may surprise you.

First, my follow-up question is: “Why would you want to eat foods close to the foods your ancestors ate?”

It’s probably because you’ve been told that those foods are somehow better, healthier, and more nutritious. They contained less sugar, more fiber, and perhaps more antiox idants.

You probably also have bought the common myth that hybridized foods are bad for health.

But let’s put things into perspective.

Our ancestors ate foods that they could find in their environment, and over the course of thousands upon thousands of generations, they altered these plants by selecting the ones that they preferred.

Our ancestors always preferred foods containing more calories (natural sugar), a manageable amount of fiber, and fewer natural toxins.
The plants we cultivate today are the most nutritious and digestible foods that humans ever had access to.

Trying to go back to wild foods entirely would not only be a mistake, but it would also be counterproductive. While it’s true that some wild plants are nutritious and offer some health benefits, designing a diet around wild plants would be extremely ill advised.

If you tried to live on wild fruits, such as the ones that chimpanzees live on, you would be come sick and eventually die. That’s because humans are not adapted to live on wild plants. We are genetically adapted to foods with more available calories, fewer tannins and fewer natural toxins.

Richard Wrangham, from Harvard University, writes:

“Evolutionary adaptation to cooking might likewise explain why humans seem less prepared to tolerate toxins than do other apes. In my experience of sampling many wild foods eaten by primates, items eaten by chimpanzees in the wild taste better than foods eaten by monkeys. Even so, some of the fruits, seeds, and leaves that chimpanzees select taste so foul that I can barely swallow them. The tastes are strong and rich, excellent indicators of the presence of non-nutritional compounds, many of which are likely to be toxic to humans—but presumably much less so to chimpanzees. Consider the plum-size fruit of Warburgia Ugandensis, a tree famous for its medicinal bark. Warburgia fruits contain a spicy compound reminiscent of a mustard oil. The hot taste renders even a single fruit impossibly unpleasant for humans to ingest. But chimpanzees can eat a pile of these fruits and then look eagerly for more. Many other fruits in the chimpanzee diet are almost equally unpleasant to the human palate. Astringency, the drying sensation produced by tannins and a few other compounds, is common in fruits eaten by chimpanzees.

(…) The shifts in food preference between chimpanzees and humans suggest that our species has a reduced physiological tolerance for foods high in toxins or tannins. Since cooking predictably destroys many toxins, we may have evolved a relatively sensitive palate.”

I’ve spent a lot of time in Costa Rica, and I’ve had the chance to look at what monkeys eat in the wild. The monkeys in Costa Rica are not like great apes, but fruit constitutes most of the diet of some of these monkeys.

What always puzzled me is that whenever I saw the fruits these monkeys ate, and by accident some of it was dropped on the ground, it always looked far from edible to me.

Whenever I tried to eat some of these fruits, I found them to be repulsive. I could not even swallow one bite.

Humans have always had very good reasons to domesticate plants. The wild versions of most domesticated plants are either inedible, low in caloric value, or toxic.

If you attempted to live on wild plants, you would not thrive for very long. Almost every advocate of a “wild diet” still gets most of their calories from domesticated plants (and often animal products).

In the case of strawberries that are the size of small children, it’s true that sometimes the tastes of the public have pushed industry to create even bigger and tastier versions of common fruits. You may prefer the taste of smaller or even wild strawberries, but there’s absolutely nothing indicating that there’s anything wrong, health-wise, with big strawberries, as long as they haven’t been sprayed with a lot of pesticides.

Similarly, there’s absolutely no reason to avoid modern varieties of apples.

The problem with industry is not hybridization. The problem is that the marketplace has forgotten about older varieties of some plants, like apples or tomatoes.

There are literally hundreds of varieties of apples and tomatoes, but only a few are available commercially. However, every single one of those varieties is still domesticated and “hybridized.” They’re just less desirable for commercial reasons, either because the fruits don’t keep as long, or some other rationale like this.

Lately, there’s been a resurgence of interest for Heirloom tomatoes. Those varieties of tomatoes taste a lot better, although sometimes look “weird.” They’re just older varieties of tomatoes but are certainly not anything like the wild versions. They are still domesticated plants.
Seeking to eat what our ancestors ate isn’t practical or beneficial.

First of all, most of the plants they ate no longer exist. Over the course of evolution, they’ve selected the plants that best suited their needs. The initial wild varieties of those plants may still exist somewhere in nature, but you’d be shocked at how inedible those are!

A few exceptions come to mind: wild berries are excellent. But that may be because people, throughout history, have always picked wild berries, and “selected” the best-tasting varieties.

If you want to be healthy and stay healthy, eat foods available at health food stores, farmers markets, and supermarkets. There’s nothing wrong with the organic produce sold in those places. If you have a garden, you could try planting Heirloom varieties of some vegetables, but don’t fool yourself into thinking that those foods have anything to do with what our ancestors ate, tens of thousands of years ago.

Can Raw Foods DESTROY Your Teeth? by Frederic Patenaude

Check out all the great discount offers below on health products from Frederic Patenaude. Please do not delay, as the prices are subject to change at any time.

Can Raw Foods DESTROY Your Teeth? by Frederic Patenaude
You know all of the health benefits of eating fruits and vegetables, but did you know that eating only raw foods could potentially put your teeth at risk?

That’s according to a study that showed that a raw food diet increases risk of dental erosion compared to a conventional diet.

How does raw food affect your teeth, and what can you do to protect them?

What the Study Showed

Researchers from Germany studied 130 subjects whose diet consisted of more than 95 percent raw food. The median duration of the diet was 39 months, with a minimum of 17 months, and a maximum of 418 months.

These participants answered questionnaires recording their food intake during a 7-day period before starting the study.

Researchers then randomly selected 76 gender- and age-matched participants for use as a control group. Using study models, they then registered tooth decay in both groups.

Their findings? Compared to the control group, subjects living on a raw food diet had significantly more tooth decay. 60.5 percent of the raw food eaters had at least one tooth with a severe decay, versus 31.6 percent of the control group.

Why Did This Happen?

Researchers aren’t sure why. They noted that within the raw food group, they could find no significant correlation between nutrition or oral health data. Nevertheless, the results showed that raw food eaters were more at risk.

One thing to note is the high amount of fruit eaten by the raw foodists. The raw food diet records showed that people in the raw food group ate an average of 9.5 kg (21 pounds) of fruit per week. (The maximum amount consumed for one person was 23.7 kg (52 pounds!), which is a lot of fruit!)

It’s no secret that although fruit has many health benefits, it can also be high in sugar and acidity, which is a double whammy for teeth.

The British Dental Association (BDA) has advised that the safest approach when eating apples is to eat them only at mealtimes, (and then rinse out the mouth to minimize tooth damage).

Added to that is the fact that the sugar content of apples (and likely other fruits) has increased by up to 50 percent over the last couple decades, as farmers breed varieties to have a sweeter taste.

New research by the U.S. Department of Agriculture found that the typical modern apple now has a sugar content of up to 15 percent. This means it contains the equivalent of four teaspoons of sugar.

A BDA spokesperson noted that once enamel is worn away, it doesn’t regenerate.

“Research shows that dental erosion in adults due to diet is usually a result of excessive consumption of fruits and fruit juices.”

Other Potential Causes

The aforementioned research is only one study.

It had a relatively small number of participants.

However, it brings up an important concern. Can a raw food diet be stressful for your teeth?

It’s safe to say that if your diet contains a lot of fruit, your teeth can be at risk. Beyond that, we need more research to discover the answers.

Some raw foodists who have experienced teeth problems after switching to raw have some additional theories.

Eating more often may be part of the issue. Once switching to a raw diet, you may find yourself grazing. Even if you’re snacking on healthy foods, frequent eating can disrupt the natural remineralization of your tooth enamel. Typically after you eat, your saliva goes to work rebuilding enamel.

However, if your saliva is constantly breaking down more food, and if that food is more sugary and acidic, your tooth enamel is more likely to suffer.

Another possibility is that due to the increased intake of nuts, dried fruit, and dehydrated foods food more easily becomes lodged between teeth where it is hard to remove. The longer food debris stays stuck on or between teeth, the easier for bacteria to attack.

How to Protect Your Teeth While Enjoying a Raw Food Diet (and Fruits!)

The answer, fortunately, is not to stop eating fruits or nuts or other great raw foods. The answer is to consider changing how you take care of your teeth in between meals and snacks.

One thing to be careful of—brushing right after eating an acidic food is actually worse for your teeth than doing nothing at all. Acid breaks down enamel, leaving your teeth vulnerable. Enamel softened by an acid attack can be scrubbed away by the toothbrush.

If you’d like to find out more about this topic, make sure to get the program “How To Heal & Prevent Dental Disasters In 21 Days Or Less”.

To find out more, get the eBook “How to Heal and Prevent Dental Disasters.”

In it, is explained:

– Exactly what routine to follow to heal your teeth, if you’ve experienced any kind of dental problems.

– How to avoid the common dental problems associated with vegetarian, vegans, and raw food diets.

– Nutritional changes you can make that can save your teeth.

It’s the best resource found to avoid and reverse most dental issues.

Food Combining Simplified by Frederic Patenaude

Looking for some great holiday gifts for yourself, your family, friends and co-workers to get and stay healthy, as that is most important. Then check out the deals on products from Frederic and Renegade Health below. The offers/discounts can change at any time, so don’t delay!

Food Combining Simplified by Frederic Patenaude
Whenever I throw celery in a fruit smoothie, or add oranges in a salad, some people ask me “But wait… isn’t that against food combining rules?”

So let’s talk about food combining.

Dr. Herbert Shelton is responsible for most food combining theories. In his book, “Food Combining Made Easy,” he describes his food combining rules based on his experience serving meals to very sick patients at his fasting clinic. Many of his rules have been misinterpreted since. And for the remainder, he rarely gave any explanation, other than his personal experience.

There are no real “rules” of food combining. You must simply pay attention to your digestion.

Instead, here are a few principles that tend to improve digestion in most people:

#1 Don’t Combine Sugar and Fat (in large quantities)

The main combination to avoid is sugar and fat. Sugar being any type of sugar such as fruits, dates, refined sugar, or anything sweet. Fat includes oils, avocados, nuts, and any other type of fatty foods.

The reason is that fat takes a longer time to digest, while sugar tends to digest quickly. When the two are mixed together in sufficient quantities, the sugar will ferment. Say hello to gas and bloating!

So the combinations to avoid include: dates and nuts, nuts and dried fruits, adding fat to fruit smoothies (including oils, nuts, etc.), and obviously eating fruit or sweets at the end of a meal containing fat.

However, the main thing to remember is that QUANTITY is everything.

If you have a few almonds mixed with raisins, you’ll be fine. But if you eat the entire bag, you’re asking for trouble.

Same with fruit in salads: it’s perfectly okay to add some acidic fruits to a salad, like berries or citrus, even if that salad contains avocados. But don’t go pouring half the bottle of olive oil on top of it!

#2: Avoid Sugar and Starch

This is the combination of cooked starch and sugar, so this one obviously doesn’t apply to a raw food meal. Starch includes bread, potatoes, pasta, etc.

This combinations can lead to a lot of gas and fermentation. Examples include: raisin bread, all pastries, all cakes, all cookies, etc.

But again, quantity is everything.

Unnecessary Rules

There are several “rules” of food combining that are really unnecessary. Let me give you a few:

Melons – There’s no reason to avoid eating melons with other fruits. You can mix melons with any other fruit you want, without any problems. Even Shelton said so.

Fruits – Fruits may be combined with each other without problems. There’s no need to only eat fruits of certain categories together.

Tomatoes – Although we eat tomatoes as a vegetable, it is a fruit in reality so it may be combined with other fruits if desired.

Greens Don’t Count – Greens such as lettuce, celery, spinach, and other green leaves, don’t even count in food combining. The reason is that they combine well with anything. They combine well with fruit as well as with any other food.

Simplify Combos

The whole idea about food combining is to simplify meals. It means that a meal with five ingredients will digest more easily than a meal with ten. And a meal with two ingredients will be easier to digest than a meal with five.

It’s more important to vary our diet from meal to meal, rather than get all that variety in one meal!

As you learn more about food combining and a simple and easy raw food diet, you’ll find that it’s really the best way to stay healthy with a “silent” digestion, and best of all, it’s also so enjoyable to eat that way!

Is Acid Wreaking Your Teeth? by Frederic Patenaude

There’s a threat to the health of your teeth that you may not recognize.

It’s called acidity.

Our saliva is naturally alkaline and prevents enamel erosion by supplying minerals to the teeth in between meals.

However, when the saliva becomes more acidic, more bacteria thrive and produce more acids, which eats away at our enamel.

But another more common threat is the onslaught of acid from the foods we eat.

A little acidity is good — our bodies can deal with it and restore alkaline balance after a meal. But when our enamel is already weak, and we start feeling the effects (sensitive teeth, cavities, etc.), we must give our teeth a break from all this acid!

Another problem is that we expose our teeth to acids more than ever before.

We drink healthy juices, or smoothies, which are often made with acidic fruits like apples, lemons or citrus.
We drink apple cider vinegar, hibiscus tea or lemon water.
We squeeze lime juice all over our food or use balsamic vinegar in an attempt to use less salt or improve flavor.
We drink wine, coffee, and other highly acidic beverages.
Acid is everywhere!

If you’ve been experiencing problems with your teeth, it may be time to give yourself a break from this acid onslaught.

It may be a chance to go on an acid-free diet! Not forever, but to give your teeth enough time to build back some enamel and get strong again.

Here are some foods to avoid during this “acid-free diet.”

Balsamic and all vinegar
Lemon, lime juice
Citrus
Many other fruits: berries, apples, mangoes, grapes, etc.
Coffee, wine
Pickles and fermented vegetables
Tomatoes and tomato products
Soda
I’m not saying that all of the acid-containing foods I just mentioned are unhealthy. Many are super healthy! But, when you want to rebuild your enamel, it’s essential to minimize or avoid these foods for a while.

Instead, you can eat all of the non-acidic foods, such as:

Nonacidic fruits: melons, papayas, bananas, dates, persimmons, etc.
Most vegetables (But beware: many become acidic when roasted).
Most foods you can think of that don’t taste acidic (whole grains, beans, avocados, etc.)
Acid Vs. Acid-Forming

It’s important to understand that a food item can be acidic (contain acids) but be alkaline-forming after digestion, while other food items can be alkaline or neutral, but become acidic after digestion. This is due to the mineral balance in the food and the presence of acid-forming amino acids. That is why most acidic fruits are alkaline-forming while most animal products are acid forming. Grains are slightly acid forming.

Of course, we’re talking about the contact of acid with your teeth, which is different. Ideally, you would want to eat a predominantly alkaline-forming diet that’s also low in acids.

The Acid-Free Diet Is Not Enough

The acid-free diet will help give your teeth a break and enable the rebuilding of enamel. However, you also need to ensure that you’re doing everything you can to turn actively around your dental health for the better.

The only way to prevent dental decay for life and reverse a bad situation is to take active control of your oral environment. Just eating less acid alone does not guarantee you’ll become cavity-proof.

In it, you will discover:

• How to care for your teeth (forget the TV commercials!)
• What you can do for your teeth if you already have decay above or below the gumline, pain, bleeding or loose teeth…
• Why the dental industry on purpose wants you to come back for more visits with new problems to “fix” every time.
• What to do if you lose a filling, chip or lose a tooth, etc.
• And much more

The only way to prevent dental decay for life and reverse a bad situation is to take active control of your oral environment. Just eating less sugar does not address the root of the problem (although there are important nutritional steps you can take to make your teeth cavity-proof).

How to “Survive” Air Travel by Frederic Patenaude

Check out below some great deals on Frederic’s health products.

How to “Survive” Air Travel by Frederic Patenaude

I travel maybe once a month on average by plane, so over the years I’ve come up with a few ways to stay healthier doing something that is often a source of stress for most people.

A few of my tips have nothing to do with food. When you travel, your primary concern is to avoid or reduce stress. Stress will take a huge toll on the body and add to the fatigue of traveling. If you’re crossing time-zones, you’re putting your body under even more stress.

So my goal when traveling by plane is to lower stress as much as possible. Every tip I will give you has something to do with that goal. If you make flying a pleasant experience, your digestion and overall health will improve.

1) Get a 9 a.m. flight if you can

This is a tip that I picked up years ago from an airline employee. During weekdays, 9 a.m. is the best time to fly. Why? All the rush hour is over. Business travel must arrive at their destination BY 9 or 10 a.m, so they take the 6 and 7 a.m. flights. By 9 a.m., the airport is empty. Any flight between 9 and 11 a.m will be during a time where the airport is practically empty. You will breeze through security and get to relax at the lounge much sooner!

2) Bring Snacks

I always bring healthy snacks with me on the plane and to the airport. Most people don’t realize they can bring fresh fruit and produce as long as they are “prepared,” even when fruit is otherwise forbidden. For example, you can’t leave Hawaii with a fresh pineapple, but you can cut up the pineapple in a fruit salad and bring that in a container.

Fresh fruit is king for flying. It’s truly the best food you can eat, along with water-rich vegetables like bell peppers, celery, and cucumbers (and yes, I realize that two of those vegetables are technically fruits, but give me a break! We do eat them like vegetables).

You don’t want to bring too much and then be burdened by excess weight. I typically bring the following:

Ginger chews (to avoid motion sickness). Available in health food stores.
A big bowl of fruit salad, with plastic utensils and napkins (don’t forget that part!)
2-3 healthy snack bars
A small bag of nuts or dried fruit, or both

3) Drink water

On the plane, drink plenty of water. However, don’t go crazy and drink so much that you have to constantly go to the bathroom. If you’re taking a night flight and you’re trying to get some rest, that can impair your ability to sleep.

There’s no set formula for how much you should drink, although some people suggest certain amounts by hours of flying. Essentially, you want to prevent dehydration. As long as your urine remains relatively clear and abundant, you’re doing a good job. If it gets very yellow, you’re becoming dehydrated.

4) Considering eating only fruit

If you have a flight that’s only a few hours long, consider eating only fruit during your entire travel time. Personally, my digestion always gets messed up when I travel by plane. It’s probably because of stress related to my fear of flying. But fruit is the one food I can handle no matter what. Fruit is also water-rich, which helps keep you hydrated. You can also consume celery, and other cut up water-rich vegetables (but not a big salad with avocados, nuts, and dressing!).

If you’re flying longer, you may get hungry and need to eat something more than fruit. In this case, stick with foods that are easy to digest. Personally, I can’t handle a big salad when I travel by plane. But nuts and seeds work well. And I only eat airplane food when I’m sitting in business class (see more tips about business class below).

5) Drink green tea

If you need a “pick me up” while flying, drink green tea instead of other caffeinated beverages. Green tea is full of antioxidants that will help your health while flying. Bring your own tea bags and ask for hot water. If you’re in business class, they can make green tea for you.

6) Use Light Therapy

I use a website called “Jet Lag Rooster” to create a plan to follow before or after arriving at my destination.

The plan essentially involves resetting the circadian cycles by exposing yourself to light. The website explains everything, and they also have an iPhone app.

You will need a few pieces of gear if you want this to work:
An inexpensive travel lightbox
Dark sunglasses or shades
A night mask
This program really works. I’ve used it a few times and then traveled again without it, and it was night and day! It’s sometimes not easy to follow because you have to wake up very early at inconvenient times to expose yourself to light, but if you can, try to do the program as explained on the website. It will save you from huge amounts of stress and unpleasantness on your next international or cross-country trip.

7) Fly in business class

There’s a reason why business travelers fly in business or first class when flying internationally. It’s simply a more restful experience! You can sleep on a fully reclined seat or “bed” and be treated to a royal experience.

However, business class seats are not cheap, especially internationally.

I personally always fly business class when going international, but I never pay for it. I use the system I teach in the course “How to Travel the World for Free.”

Conclusion

Finally, the trick to remaining healthy while traveling by plane is lowering stress. Sure, you can boost your immune system marginally by consuming supplements and superfoods, but none of those things will have as much of a powerful effect on your health as lowering stress will.

Whatever you do, try to make flying a pleasant experience, and enjoy your trip!
