I could live off of melons. The only thing is, if you eat to many watermelons you could end up not getting enough sodium. A facebook raw foodie that I know had serious issues from that and almost died. Cantaloupe on the other hand you could eat all the time and not have a problem. Here is his story. marktassi.wordpress.com/2012/01/25/h

In the comments it didn't scare him away from being raw, he just more careful now.

Personally for me I love melons by themselves. I'm not looking forward to the price of organic melons this year for sure. That's when I stop off at the local downtown farmer's market on Saturday mornings before going to the co-op.

I agree Beme80. If a person has an extremely sensitive tummy, then it's possible the melon is digested so much quicker than other food then maybe it caused some discomfort. Otherwise enjoy your fruit any old way you want. For the cleanest digestion, eat mono meals.

Yep the only thing I heard with fruit is don't mix melons with other fruits even though I don't think that is always true.

Interestingly with LFRV it's all so easy. No need to worry about food combinations at all. Just eat your fruit. No combominations. It's all easy. Easiest of all: mono meals of just one kind of fruit. Mmmmmmmmmm. Imagine: a meal of mangos!

Proper food combining is essential to proper digestion, nutrition and body function. It's essential!

One of these days soon I'll post an article on the team that details this Natural Hygiene tenant.

Awesome and I can say that eating sweet fruit with fat does cause problems, I remember that from when I was eating an over abundance of fat and nut butters and putting them on my fruit! My tummy didn't like that one bit.

I am enrolled in his mentoring class. Money well spent! This is an excerpt of an email he said reviewing human's requirements for the perfect diet. Unless you are NOT human, please read. LOL

Do Humans Need Added Fat?

Humans are frugivores by design and should consume fruit, green leaves, shoots and other plants. Added fat is not required by the human body in order to store body fat. Fruits and all other natural foods have sufficient fat to meet the need for essential fatty acids needed by the body. Concentrated fat, like oils extracted from seeds, is not desirable.

Consuming fat in the form of oil slows down digestion. It also results in health problems such as diabetes, Candida, chronic fatigue, low energy, hypoglycemia and others. Too much fat, even from natural, raw foods will cause health problems.

The only alternative to fat is fruit. There are two main types of food that provide the energy, in calories, that we need: fruit or fat. Vegetables simply have so few calories that a person would never be able to eat enough to survive.

Most progressive health experts with years of experience promote the same fat requirements year and year, recommending a fat intake of about 15% OR LESS. The primates all eat diets that consist of very low-fat diets.

Practical Guidelines Regarding Fat:
Unless you are allergic to them, do not completely avoid avocados and nuts, just limit yourself to one-half an avocado per day or two ounces (60 grams) of nuts and seeds but not both on the same day.

Eat enough fruit to meet your caloric requirements. Avoid oils including olive, coconut butter, canola, peanut and others.

If you do not choose to obtain fat through avocados, nuts and seeds, you may consume two to four tablespoons of raw nut butter per day (but not every day).

Eat fat only once each day and do not eat fatty foods every day of the week.

Do not eat sweet fruit with fat. Doing so can result in digestive acidity. Mixing nuts and dried fruit can have the same result.
