So today’s listening pleasure was the Rich Roll podcast with Michael Arnstein who is an Elite runner and Fruitarian.
Basically, the take aways from the podcast were :
1. Sustainability in the food network and how the plant-based diet is more sustainable than meat-based. Although Rich touched on the Grass-Feed beef discussion they both agree that there are serious issues with meat economics.
2. High water content foods . Michael points out that the main component of the diet is the idea around food having a large water content but that fruits have the necessary calories to sustain the energy needed to live.
3. Organic vs. non-organic ? This area seemed to be the Achilles heel for Michael. He indicated that he doesn’t avoid non-Organic and this is a major concern of his.
“Fruit is Fast-Food” – Michael’s Upcoming book.
Quite interesting and definitely a great perspective now how does the Liver process all this Fructose ?
UPDATE: (Which fruit fights cancer better?)
