Dready head and a Fruitarian body = a perfect philosophical fit
Dreads and Diets
Well, if you're fighting diabetes and trying to control weight, obviously you'd want to stay away from sugar. As for getting fat on fruit... well, that's not gonna happen. You could eat fifteen avocados a day and not gain a pound. You may even lose weight, depending on your current diet. (Also, concerning you and your mother Shanxon, ask your physician/doctor if apple cider vinegar would conflict with any medications you are currently on, or if it would worsen your condition in any way. If not, you may want to take it internally as directed by the bottle: it has been shown to regulate insulin production and the sugar content of blood. Many have even reported weight loss if taken after each meal. Not to say it tastes good though *cringe*.)
For those interested, I've done a bit of research on the fruititarian diet, and found these two pages a good kick-start for further research: http://www.transbay.net/~teb/fruitarian/fruitarian-1.html, and of course, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fruitarianism
*Note: when reading wikipedia, keep in mind how biased the site is against all forms of natural medicine or spirituality. The same bias could be reflected on the page above. The transbay link, however, seems fairly unbiased.
**Second Note: the pages above are surface-level only, so I would suggest deeper research if the subject interests you.
***Third note! Moderation is key in any diet. I am in no way suggesting that anyone should eat that many avocados in a day. Not even in a week. The same goes for sugar (yes, even fructose from fruit). Overloading the body isn't a great idea, so keep the diet varied.
