Incredible as it may seem, water is quite possibly the single most important catalyst in losing weight and keeping it off. Although most of us take it for granted, water may be the only true “magic potion” for permanent weight loss.
Water suppresses the appetite naturally and helps the body metabolize stored fat. Studies have shown that a decrease in water intake will cause fat deposits to increase, while an increase in water intake can actually reduce fat deposits.
Here’s why: The kidney’s can’t function properly without enough water. When they don’t work to capacity, some of their load is dumped onto the liver. Read the rest of this entry
“We cannot get along without sugar. This is true, but in order to know where the danger lies we must consider just what the body requires in sugar supply. It is indeed a very important element in nutrition, but its nature and use are little understood by most people. The best form in which we can obtain sugar to meet our needs is from fresh fruit, dried fruits such as dates, and raisins or from honey. The sugars derived from sugar cane, beets and the maple tree are all unfavorable, and because they are of such wide use, the evil they cause is one that should alarm us.” The Original Diet, page 43.

X-ray studies have been conducted to determine the emptying time of the normal stomach. Anything remaining in the stomach five hours after a test meal is abnormal. The stomach usually empties itself in 2 ½ to 4 hours.

These stomachs were x-rayed and found to be emptied normally in less than 4 ½ hours.
Excerpt from Back To Eden, by Jethro Kloss,
Causes: A wrong diet, constipation, overeating, eating a combination of food at the same meal that causes fermentation, or devitalized foods. The very elements that would keep the blood pure are removed from many foods by the way they are prepared. For example, the heart and the outside of the wheat, the eyes and peelings of potatoes, the outside of rice, and the heart of corn, which is take out of the meal. These are wonderful alkaline medicines and do a great deal toward keeping the blood pure.
Some other causes of impure blood are improper breathing, sleeping in rooms that are not properly ventilated, and lack of exercise. Often the muscles are poisoned and feel tired because of the accumulated waste matter from insufficient exercise. Read the rest of this entry
