The “best way” to eat is a matter of following one’s senses and choosing what smells and tastes most delicious and feels most satisfying. That’s how the process of nutrition starts. Superior nutrition is almost that simple, but not quite. Obtaining high-quality food is a learned art.
Binging usually starts with a craving. We want something we really know is not good for us, so we decide not to have it—not because we don’t want it, but because we feel we shouldn’t. This leads to a feeling of deprivation which can, and usually does, lead to binging and guilt, with vows to never do it again.
Most researchers concur that the use of inactive vitamin B12 analogues found in multivitamin supplements containing vitamin B12 as well as spirulina, chlorella and blue green algae, can deplete, destroy and interfere with active (true) vitamin B12 by competing for the same cell receptor sites.
The most healthful food choices are raw/living fruits, vegetables and sprouts with minimal amounts of seeds, and nuts, all fresh from the orchard and garden. Eat only fresh food that tastes delicious. While eating, if the experience or food becomes unappealing or you feel satisfied, stop eating; do not overeat.

People with diabetes, hypoglycemia, and candida are told not to eat fruit. They don’t eat fruit because of its sugar content, yet they’ll eat candy, bread, cake, and drink alcohol. Does this make sense to you? Fruit is over 80% water and its sugars are simple and easy to digest.
Every one of the ten trillion cells in your body contains thousands of enzymes. Your health is dependent upon having every cell pulling its weight in the task of working together with all the other cells. For the cells to pull their weight, all of their enzymes must be functioning well.
We become comfortable with our habits, especially the dulling ones, and tragically we accept whatever consequences the unhealthful ones bring. Cooked heavy foods—meat and flour—are very dullling. They literally clog and glue us up, and stifle our brain power. What can help us to loosen the grip on the unhealthful habits?
By eating properly you will naturally detoxify and may be able to solve all of your ills. Many people, including myself, have overcome serious health problems by applying these healthful eating guidelines.
If we have an overload of debris we will have a huge population of bacteria. When when fruit sugar comes into contact with the bacteria-infested debris in the alimentary canal, the bacteria feast on the sugar. The result is fermentation, i.e., the bacteria consume sugar and excrete alcohol, vinegar and gases. The alcohol, vinegar and gases poison and damage our tissues and nerves, and impair our brain functions, including our thinking.
Cooking renders food toxic! The toxicity of the deranged debris of cooking is confirmed by the doubling and tripling of white blood cells after eating a cooked food meal. The white blood cells are the first line of defense and are, collectively, popularly called "the immune system."
If we want be able to work all day and avoid becoming fatigued, we should live on fruits and drink only water. Fats, in comparison, take longer to digest and assimilate. Furthermore, the absorption and utilization of proteins takes longer than starches, and starches take longer than sugars.
If bananas are 30 times sweeter than they used to be (I have seen no evidence of this) our ancestors would have had to eat 900 of them per day to supply the same calories, a daunting challenge when we consider that our ancestors were undoubtedly much more active than we, hence they had much greater caloric needs.
