Jump Start Your Fat Loss - Issue 1The importance of your bodies ability to clean itself or
"fruit in the morning until noon"
by Rob Cooper
When we're fat, we're carrying a lot of stored toxins. Our fat
cells are used as a way to store toxins so that our body can
protect itself from them. Interestingly enough, our cells can
store more than just toxins too, they can store memories.
Keeping clean is one of our bodies prime functions. It's also
one of the first to break down and or have energy diverted from
it for other things. Think of how important it is to have a
shower every day to keep the outside of your body clean and then
imagine what it's like on the inside and in your cells if that
isn't happening as efficiently as it could.
There are many cultures and ways of eating that believe that our
body operates on cycles. Without getting too technical about
it, lets just say that our day is broken into three separate
1. the intake of food
2. the processing of that food
3. the elimination of that food or the cleansing cycle
Now, based on who you talk to the cycles and their times vary,
but what I've come to believe, know and practice is that the
cleansing cycle begins at about 4 am and lasts for about a third
of the day, or 8 hours.
So, the cleansing cycle begins at 4 am and goes until noon.
Now, lets state for the record another principle before we move
"The Digestion of Food is the Most Energy Consuming Thing the
You can choose to believe that or not, but before you dismiss
it, think about some times in your life when you've really felt
burnt out and low energy after eating a meal. Remember what mom
told you "wait at least an hour after eating before going
swimming". She said that it was because you'd get cramps, but
in reality it was because of how much work was going on in your
Blood gets diverted to the digestive system after we eat a meal
and our energy gets diverted to digestion instead of strength in
our arms and legs and it's safer to wait to swim in case you
need to use your arms and legs for an emergency.
The same is true for waiting after eating before doing a heavy
workout. When doing a heavy workout or any strenuous activity
after eating, blood then gets diverted to the muscles and away
from digestion causing digestion to be incomplete, last longer,
not complete and then pass a rotting mess into the intestines
causing gas and bloating. You may not feel hungry again for
hours instead of the normal three or four hours.
Ok, so remember now that the cleansing cycle lasts from 4 am
Remember also that Digestion of food requires an enormous amount
What's the most important meal of the day? Breakfast.
What happens when you eat breakfast at 6 am or 7 or 8 am?
Energy gets diverted from the every important cleansing cycle to
digestion and thus becomes incomplete.
Jump Start Your Weight Loss Part One
So here's what I propose as part one of jump starting your
weight loss goals. I propose that you might consider how
important it is to give the cleansing cycle of your body a good
jump start itself by allowing it the full 8 hour un-interupted
period of time to do it's job.
Am I proposing that you don't eat until noon?
Here's the deal: Fruit in it's ripe state does not require any
digestion, but rather is designed to slide right through the
stomach and into the intestines where it provides all the
vitamins, nutrients and cell cleansing water that nature
provided it with.
For each morning, from now until the end of this 10 part series,
begin each morning with a glass of clean water. Then follow
that up with a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice or a couple
Then every couple of hours until noon, have a couple more pieces
When you eat fruit, it should be on an empty stomach and then
given half an hour or 45 minutes to make it's way through the
stomach. Follow it up with another glass of water to help wash
the fruit from the stomach and provide some more clean fluids
Does this mean no coffee or tea in the morning.
No tea, no coffee, no milk, no dairy products. Nothing but
fruit and water.
Then at noon for the time being, have what you would normally
What You Will Notice
What you will come to notice is an increase in energy because no
energy is being used to digest a big breakfast. You will also
notice some more regular bowel movements in the days following
as the extra fiber from the fruit and the energy put into the
cleansing system takes effect. You may notice more gas and a
little bloating. This is normal and due to a couple of things,
one being that fact that some new fiber has been introduced into
your bowels and the cleaning of your intestine is causing some
normal cleansing effects.
It may also seem like you've gone back to your teens and you've
broken out with some zits again. You may notice a rash on your
skin, and that as well is the signs of cleansing. You may
notice that your nose begins to run and / or you begin to sneeze
Signs of cleansing
Gas Bloating Skin rash Runny nose Acne / zits Sneezing
The skin and the lungs are both cleansing organs and it might be
something that you are not expecting to occur. Yes, your urine
and feces may change as well, but you're probably aware of those
as being the result of a change in your diet.
As you begin to clean your body on a daily basis, your cells
will thank you by opening up and pouring out the toxins.
The energy saved by not digesting food and the increase in clean
water both from a glass and from the high water content fruit
all aid in cleansing and result in more efficient energy systems.
More efficient energy systems is the first step in jump starting
your weight loss goals.
Q: does this also mean that if I don't eat any food until noon,
I'll be better off?
A: No. The addition of fresh fruit and fruit
juices will provide clean calories, cellular water and fiber.
All this nutrition goes straight into healthy new cells.
Q: Will I have to eat fruit until noon for the rest of my life.
A: For the rest of the 10 part series, I'd like you to follow
this principle. Following that, you may choose what works for
you. If it's serving you and your body, you may choose to
continue, if you want to change back, you may do that as well.
One thing I do wish to communicate is this:
"The Proper Consumption of Fruit"
The proper consumption of fruit rule states that, fruit, being
pre-digested and not requiring digestion in the stomach should
be eaten on an empty stomach, given 45 minutes to an hour
(depending on the fruit) to slide through and only then eat a
non-fruit item. Fruit should never be eaten after a meal.
More about this rule here:
The Proper Consumption of fruit
This is a principle that I have broken only enough times to
count on one hand in the last 15 years. If I break the rule, I
experience incredible stomach distress including what I call
"lightning bolts" into my stomach.
So, once again, fresh fruit and clean water from the time you
get up until noon is step one.
This is a principle that will be built upon until the end of the
Meet Stacey again:
Stacey informed me that one of the primary principles that he
was following was this very thing. He knows my story and he
knows that I've told him over and over again about fruit being
of prime importance in the morning and he adopted this as part
of his new program from the start. He is having coffee in the
AM with his fruit which I have advised against.
I don't advise drinking Coffee at all. Coffee is like battery
acid to the stomach and is one of the "stomach busters" of which
I refer. If you are going to have coffee, leave it until after
If you'd like to replace coffee with another hot beverage, I
highly recommend Sunrider Calli Tea. Calli tea was designed by
the shao lin temple priests of china to nourish their cleansing
systems. Drinking it daily assists the bodies own cleansing
process and it makes a very nice drink. Clients of mine have
been able to break the coffee cycle by incorporating Calli Tea
into their day.

Fat Cells Store Memories
I mentioned at the beginning that fat cells can store memories
too. As I began to burn my 288 pounds of fat, I found that I
went through stages of cleansing. I applied this principle of
fruit in the morning and the fat was dropping off. As I hit
certain levels of weight, I'd begin to remember people, places,
things and even began a habit I had when I was in grade 7.
These memories would come in waves for a week or so and I began
to realize that it coincided with particular cleanses. I became
aware that these memories and habits were stored in my fat
cells. As they were being cleaned, the emotions, memories and
energy surrounding those times and events were re-experienced.
Very cool, this body of ours. It was events like this that
helped keep me on track with this big physiological experiment
that I was doing. It was fun learning about the body, putting
it into practice and seeing the results.
I highly recommend the book "Fit For Life" by Harvey and
Marilynn Diamond for more information about food combining,
fruit and natural hygiene.
