As I understand, we have 7 key principles that would be suggested to transition on to first and guidelines that don’t necessarily have to be followed as strictly. If you are new to the mucusless diet, click here.
The key principles below are clear and coherent.
1. Always eat fruit first
The digestion of ripe fruits takes place within a normal stomach within a few minutes after eating. Wait 5 or 10 minutes before eating your vegetable course.
2. Do not drink liquids of any kinds with the meal
Liquids of all kinds (including soups) interfere with the proper digestion of the meal. At least thirty minutes should elapse before drinking both before and after eating.
3. Humans food is fruits and herbs
For healing purposes, uncooked, starchless green leafy vegetables (parsley, carrots, celery, lettuce), combined with fruits both in their natural and cooked state, they will find to be much better than an exclusive fruit diet.
4. Mix but few varieties
Fruit meals should consist of not more than two kinds of fruits in season. Your appetite will dictate the quantity to be eaten.
5. Never eat nuts with juicy fruits
When nuts are eaten with fruits such as oranges apples, pears, etc., the water makes nuts indigestible. Dried fruits; figs, raisins, dates, prunes, can be eaten dry with nuts. Chew together and masticate thoroughly. The fruit sugar helps to digest the nuts.
6. Nature’s own book is simplicity
The fewer food mixtures the better. Three different varieties should be sufficient – four and five is often too many.
7. Do not overeat
Mother nature requires moderation in all things.
