Back to Nature - Lifestyle


I have been a raw vegetarian predominantly for the past 15 years, I have been asked by several people to share the knowledge and experiences. This is for all of you. Hope you take the good in this and leave the bad, make your life happy and healthy not just by reading and thinking rather implementing and transforming yourself.

1) Human Body came out of Nature and in Nature there is food for this body that has to be take in their very available form. If you fail to do so you become Unnatural and your body becomes imbalanced so as your mind.

2) Whichever is in Nature is Natural. If you are doing something that is not in Nature, then what you are doing is Unnatural.

3) Nature is Gods creation, that is absolutely perfect, It is up to you to be in-tune with nature or go against it.

4) No creature in this planet seeks help of others to know what it has to eat, only human beings ask. If your instincts are not working well because of the society in which you grew up, then try your other faculties namely observation and reasoning. Don't seek help from others, how could you be so sure about what the others say is right for you? Use your inner abilities first, have faith in Nature and the Creator of this Nature.

5) Let me buzz you with some reasoning and observations, just in case you don't know how to start thinking in those lines. What ever you make or cook is not your food because you have not made your body, similarly you can't make the food for your body. Nature gave you this body and in nature there is food for this body. In nature there is a Law, Food is created first and then the Organism living on the Food is Born. What ever you eat you should be able to excrete, if you find it hard to do it, then that is not your right food. Only eating happens all the time and excretion doesn't happen, then it is not your right food. You eat a quantity and excrete way less than what you eat then also it is not your right food, You make all kinds of unnatural sounds with your mouth in the toilets in an attempt to excreting then also it is not your right food. You eat thrice a day but excrete only once in a day or once in several days then also it is not your right food. No animal in the wild has excretory problems. Only pets like dogs have, may be because they have been in association with human beings for a very long time and they have been following similar un natural lifestyles. The food that you eat isn't nourishing you then it is not your food. The food that makes you ill is not your food too.

6) Then What is your right food? The food that is not only tasty which also nourishes the body is the right food. I experimented and finally chose to eat Sprouted seeds, soaked groundnuts, Coconuts, Dates, Almonds, Cashew, Seasonal Fruits and Vegetables. I feel comfortable with this diet, my body accepts it and I have been healthy all through these years.

7) Human beings can't see in Dark, you do not have the ability to find your food when it is dark, unless you use electricity, this means you have to finish your last meal or dinner before sunset.

8) For the Body to be healthy and normal, air, water, food, exercise and sleep are essential. Air is involuntary, next comes water in the order of importance, if you had lived in a society of food gatherers then the whole day you would have walked several miles in search of your food and would be more thirsty than hungry, which means that you have to drink more quantity of water in your daily life than the quantity of food that you eat. If you are thirsty you will not eat food to satisfy your thirst, but if you are hungry you can still drink water and relieve yourself from hunger pangs. You can live without food for several days or months but you can't live without water for many days. So understand the importance of water in comparison with food. Your body functions well only when you use it, if you don't use you lose, Exercise is substitute caveman activity. Understand the importance. Sleep rejuvinates your whole system, sleep well. All the creatures in this planet search for food, eat when they find, drink water, sleep well. If you are doing something different understand where you stand.

9) Certain foods like seeds cant be eaten directly as they are very hard to chew and difficult to digest, for that you need to soak them for 8 to 12 hours in water, then separate the seeds from water, clean them well then tie them in cotton cloth, which would take 2 to 3 days to sprout, length of the sprout would be 1 to 1.5 inch, is when you can eat them. Groundnuts can be consumed after soaking for 8 hours, they don't have to be sprouted. Grains like brown rice can't be eaten raw, even if you boil, the nutrients are still preserved. Salt and Spices have medicinal values that can't be used as edible substances in day to day life. Sugar and oil are man made, Tea, Coffee are stimulants not nourishments, Human body is not designed to have animal foods, this isn't very difficult to understand if you observe the bodies of herbivore and carnivore animals.

10) If you cultivate natural habits you should be healthy and happy, but don't expect a lot, you have control over your actions where as the results are beyond your control. Just because you are eating raw foods and having a healthy life style doesn't mean you will be healthy for rest of your life without a single health problem. Life is Uncertain. You live in the midst of confused man made society where in you eat genetically modified food, breath polluted air and drink contaminated water. The genes that you obtained are from unhealthy parents and grandparents with unhealthy lifestyles and habits. There are so many factors that are beyond your control. Please be aware.

11) My Lifestyle:

5AM - Wake up

5AM - Drink 1 to 1.25 Liter Water

5 to 6:30 AM - Exercise for one to one and a half hour, either running or yoga asanas/prayanama or weight lifting

6:30 AM - Drink 1 to 1.25 Liter Water

6:35 AM - Brush my Teeth with Neemstick, Take a cold water shower, get things ready for my office.

7:30 to 8:30 AM - Have Breakfast that constitutes Sprouted seeds one or two varieties of Moong, horse gram, millets, bazzra, wheat, ragi etc., Soaked Ground Nuts, Coconut, Dates, Almonds, Cashew etc.

8:30 AM - Go for Work

10:30 AM - Drink/Sip water after completion of 2 hours from breakfast completion time at regular intervals and finish atleast 1 Liter water before lunch.

12:30 to 1 PM - Lunch constitutes Boiled Brown Rice with boiled cereals powder.

3 PM - Drink/Sip water after completion of 2 hours from Lunch completion time at regular intervals and finish atleast 1 Liter water before dinner.

5:30 PM - Dinner constitutes 1 to 1.5 kg of seasonal fruits.

7:30 PM - Drink/Sip water after completion of 2 hours from Dinner completion time at regular intervals and finish atleast 500 Milli Liter water before sleep

8:30 PM - Sleep

After food, I give 2 hours gap and then start drinking or sipping water at regular intervals and I stop drinking water before 40 minutes of the next intake of food what ever it might be lunch or dinner. I do not consume Salt, Spices, Sugar, Redchilly, Tamarind, Tea, Coffee, Oil, Animal Foods. If I fall ill, I do fasting.

12) For those of you who claim themselves spiritual and are into spiritual path, trying really hard, doing this and that to just have a glimpse of the divine, for all of them, I would say, first eat what the divine has cooked for your body to eat in it's very available form, try to be natural and normal as much as you can and you shall realize the divine for sure. Nature is your Guru, first be intune with nature, then nature will lead you to it's Creator, in your words the God.

13) Sometimes I might just go on a 2 meal a day diet. I take the first meal at 11:30AM which constitutes 3 varieties or more of sprouted seeds and seasonal fruits. I have the second meal at 6:30pm (before sun set time) which constitute Boiled brown-rice with boiled vegetables.

14) I often go on a complete 100% raw food diet. Breakfast only Sprouts, Lunch only Nuts like Coconut and Dry fruits and fruits as Dinner.

15) There is no hard and fast rule, observe nature, experiment on yourself and make your choices.

16) Now I am not after Taste, neither am I after Health. Then you might ask me why am I doing all this. That is because I chose to eat what Nature has selected me to eat. And with my observation, experimentation I think this is what is right for my body. It may or may not be right for your body. If you tried something different and still preserved your health in life, then, I am quite open to hear, enlighten me :)
