Imagine If Health Was Your Habit

Imagine If Health Was Your Habit


It’s your choice….

Your outcome in life comes from your daily actions over a lifetime.

These daily actions are determined by your habits.

Your habits are yours to change or break.

But it may require a lot of hard work.

If you put that hard work in now, you will reap the benefits for the rest of a lifetime.

Imagine how you will feel when taking care of yourself in the best way, all the time, is your habit.


When eating fruits and vegetables is always your number one choice.

  • when you are hungry….you eat fruit
  • when you are celebrating….celebrate with fruit
  • when you are fueling up for exercise….you eat eat fruit


…and so on

Imagine if thinking positively, developing a good relationship with your self and never thinking unnecessary negative thoughts was your habit.

Imagine if enjoyable and fun exercise helping you to get stronger, fitter and more energetic was your habit.

Imagine if waking up everyday after a deep, long restful sleep was your habit.

Imagine if eating unhealthy foods was no longer a choice, not even a thought.

Imagine what it would be like to always have perfect digestion and never remember what it was like to be otherwise.

Imagine being rid of so many headaches and aches and pains that are a result of our lifestyle choices and not bad luck or genetics.

Imagine if you never had to take medication again.

You have the control and the power to make these changes. They make take some discipline and some time but you CAN change.

But the truth is…so many people fail.


It is claimed that over 95% of people fail when they make an attempt of changing our diet.

Has that been you? Have you experienced the initial enthusiasm at the start followed by a crash and a feeling of guilt when you were not able to keep the momentum going?

Like so many people, did you not get any support from friends and family…in fact they expected you to fail…and maybe even tried to sabotage your efforts.

Did you know that most people that try to lose weight….actually end up putting more weight on?

These are some sad statistics.


This is no wonder: the world around us is constantly telling us to CONSUME. Temptation is EVERYWHERE. Food is EVERYWHERE….


….how can anyone stand a chance of changing their diet in this environment?

On top of this, food companies are employing scientists to design foods that are more ADDICTIVE than ever before. Foods that you can’t stop eating!

You have had this experience no doubt.

In this world, how can we possibly reach our goal of being vibrantly healthy every day and live our best possible life?


Firstly we need the right information.


You may say…”we are drowning in information”

Which is true.

But what is the RIGHT information. And do you have the years of study, research and travel that it may take to find this information?

And once you get that information…will you be able to take action on it? This is the hardest part and where most people fail.


If another failure for you is not an option and you are genuinely committed towards your health goals you may be interested in this:

(VIDEO) Detox Truth With Dr Doug Graham



In the raw food community, a lot of misinformation has been spread over the years.  One of the main people that has worked to clear up some of these misguided ideas is Dr Doug Graham.

We often hear people talk about “detoxing” about “cleansing” about getting rid of the toxins and junk inside them.  In this video, Dr Graham points out that we can never rid ourselves fully of toxaemia.  But if our level of toxaemia is below the toleration level then symptons will not arise.

Feel free to share a comment on the video and share it with others.  You can find more about Dr Doug Graham at or you search for the articles and videos with him on this site.




Woman, 37, starts living as a raw vegan MERMAID after doctors found a lump in her breast


Woman, 37, starts living as a raw vegan MERMAID after doctors found a lump in her breast and claims her quirky new lifestyle is ‘reversing the aging process’ and ‘making her younger’


  • Lisa, 37, who goes by the alias Raw Vegan Mermaid, had a health scare back in April 2013 when doctors found a lump in her breast
  • While the lump turned out to be benign, the professor, from Ontario, Canada, has since made it her goal to center her life around her happiness and well-being
  • Lisa decided she had to turn her health around by turning to veganism. Since then, she has noticed drastic changes in her energy levels
  • Along with her vegan diet, Lisa took up the unusual hobby of ‘mermaiding’, which sees her put on a mermaid tail and swim
  • She no longer suffers from the heartburn she had since the age of 12, and she says that she even feels younger

Raw vegans come in all shapes and sizes and embrace life in all sorts of different ways.  What’s important about this story is that her scare with health made her decided to live a life based on finding happiness and well being.

Have you ever tried mermaiding?  We at Fruitfest had never heard of this concept before.  We don’t tend to spend much time in the sea as there is no fruit there!

Is The Carnivore Diet Safe?

Recently, the Carnivore Diet has started to gain some notoriety in the world of natural health.  Some are touting this as the solution to the growing health crisis.  Instead of reducing meat consumption, as is generally suggested, should we have a diet made entirely of meat?

Those who have tried it have experienced weight loss and some claim that it has helped them to get rid of chronic digestive problems.

One well known vegan Youtuber called Vegetable Police has recently converted to trying the Carnivore diet, and it seems like others have followed suit.  The reason that he wanted to try it was because of digestive issues that had plagued him for a long time.  These issues originally made him go to a raw vegan diet initially, which he previously claimed had cured him.

This has led to other vegan and raw vegan Youtubers making response videos about their opinion on the carnivore diet.  I have shared some of the best ones below for you to enjoy and learn from:

Tesco to scrap ‘best before’ dates from fruit and vegetable lines

In the Guardian today it has been reported that Tesco is going to scrap best before dates from fruits and vegetable lines.  This is being put in plance in an effort to reduce food waste.

Have you ever looked at the best before date on a fruit and thought “No chance….this is rock hard, it’s never going to go off in 3 days!”  It seems like sometimes these dates are picked arbitrarily without any real knowledge of the ripening cycle of the fruit involved.  Persimmon, for example, can take over a month to ripen in full…..yet supermarkets will suggest you eat them while still hard. 

Probably, like me, you have learned to ignore these dates and go with your sense of taste, smell and feel to assess the ripeness or readiness of a fruit.  The other thing that is confusing is the “ready to eat” or “perfectly ripe” signs that never see, to be accurate either.

The article states, published in the Guardian, states:

The UK’s largest supermarket is to scrap potentially confusing “best before” dates from dozens more of its fresh fruit and vegetable lines after research found ditching the labels helped customers reduce their food waste at home.

Tesco shoppers will from this week no longer find date labels on a further 116 items of produce – including own-brand apples, oranges, cabbages and asparagus. Tesco hopes this will prevent food from being thrown away while still edible. The supermarket removed guidance dates from about 70 fruit and vegetable lines earlier this year.

Research carried out for the retailer, published on Monday, found that 69% of shoppers believed scrapping “best before” dates was a good idea. More than half (53%) of shoppers in the same survey said they thought scrapping best before dates made a difference, helping them keep perfectly good food for longer.”

Essentially, as human beings are designed to consume fruit we are also perfectly capable of assessing the quality, ripeness, readiness or rottenness of the fruit.  We know when it has gone off and don’t eat it.  We also know when it is delicious and edible.  Our senses are designed for this purpose.

However, this is not so with other foods:

“Compulsory “use by” labels have to be put on foods such as meat, fish, eggs and dairy products that carry a safety risk if eaten after that date. But the best before dates put on fruit and vegetables are largely a quality indication to show that although they may no longer be at their best, they are still safe to eat.”

What this is telling us is that some foods (meat, eggs, fish, dairy) pose a much greater threat to our health than others.  Of course, for other animals that are designed to consume these foods, the signs that the meat, dairy, fish or eggs where not suitable to eat would be quite obvious to them.

In their natural state, those foods are a turn off to our senses.  The idea of eat a dead animal, or eating a raw egg or drink milk from the udder of a cow is a revolting concept.  That is our sensory safeguard in place stopping us from making a bad decision.

As for fruit, we are drawn towards its colour, it’s shape, it’s beauty as we have been for millions of years.  We are well aware when it is good or not to eat.

The article ends with a profoun point on food waste:

“Food waste is a huge issue in the UK: £13bn of edible food is thrown away from homes every year, according to the government’s waste advisory body, Wrap. A further £3bn is wasted by the hospitality and food service sector.”

Of fruits and frugivores: How fruits colour themselves to attract animals

The Hindu has published an article showing the connection between how colourful fruits are in an area and the visual capacity of the frugivores consuming that fruit.

The article is here:

It start’s off:

“The colour of the fruit depends primarily on the visual capacity of the local seed dispersing animals

Ever wondered why certain fruits are red and some green? Well, you are not alone. This question has puzzled scientists for many years and now a team of researchers from Germany, Canada and Madagascar have a simple answer — to attract animals. The colour of the fruit depends primarily on the visual capacity of the local seed dispersing animals.”

This research points towards a fact that we already know.  Our colour vision is related to our history of eating fruit. 

Human’s primarily locate our food visually.  This is why we would be terrible carnivores or omnivores.  Animals have no desire to be eaten and hide and camouflage themselves in the jungle.  Hunting is a difficult process for humans as we are not equipped for it in any way.

Fruit on the other hands wants to be eaten and therefore stands out to those animals it wants to be eaten by.  As we scan a forest area with our eyesight we can immediately pick out the different hues of flowers, berries and other fruits.  They are easy to find.

Have you ever went foraging for fruit? 

It is almost like an unused muscle in your brain switches on and goes into overdrive.  The quickness and speed of the eyes and out ability to calculate the location, quality, size and ripeness of particular fruits is quite exceptional.

The ease with which we can shake a tree to get the fruits to fall or simply reach up and climb the tree to pick the fruits off is obvious.  It shows that we are perfectly suited to find and collect fruit.  When we add this to the design of our digestive system and how easily we digest fruits it is hard to argue that we are not matched most closely with a classification of frugivore.

Imagine trying to find those fruits without colour vision.  It would be almost impossible.  Or how about trying to pick them and eat them without hands to open them?  Also very difficult, and virtually impossible.

The article finishes, with an interesting point:

“The researchers also found that in both Uganda and Madagascar, fruit species that rely on bird seed dispersal tend to be redder while those which specialise on primate seed dispersal are greener. “This may be explained by the fact that primates possess an excellent sense of smell and their heavier reliance on fruit scent means that, on an average, fruits need to invest less in visual signals,” explains Dr. Omer Nevo, a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Ulm, Germany, and one of the authors of the paper.”

Certainly, it would be easy for us to find a Durian in the trees through smell alone, bananas also have a strong smell when ripening.

Orange Turns Purple: Australian Scientists Solve Fruit Mystery

A recent story reported by the BBC tells the story of a mystery orange that turned purple.  

You can read the original version here-

The article states:

“Australian health authorities say they have solved a mystery that prompted much speculation earlier this month.

It began when a Brisbane woman, Neti Moffitt, asked for an investigation into why an orange – partially eaten by her son – had later changed colour.

Scientists have now revealed it was due to a natural reaction between the fruit and a sharpened knife. The orange did not pose a health risk, they added.

Stewart Carswell, Queensland Health’s chief chemist, said “numerous tests” were conducted to determine the cause of the colour change.

The results revealed that anthocyanins – a naturally occurring antioxidant in oranges – had reacted with iron particles from the newly sharpened blade, he said.”

Have you ever had an orange turn purple?
