United States Agricultural Department Fruits and other foods not mentioned on this list
Click here to go to the site of the USDA for the charts of the fruits not mentioned on this list.


Evaluation of the charts - Fruit compared with animal food.

Energy
When you look at this table you see that one banana and a few strawberries give you as much as energy as an entrecote! You will not feel as fulfilled, but your body really can extract as much of energy out of fruit.

Proteins - Fat - Sugar
As the energy fruit contains consists of sugars the fruit is digested in 30 minutes. This chemical process has no toxic waste products that are difficult to remove from the body and it even stimulates the removing of toxic elements.

The energy animal products contain consists of fat and proteins. Because of the high amount of proteins it is digested in 6-8 hours. This chemical process does produce toxic waiste-products that have to be removed from your body.

Fibers
Another remarkable difference is that fruit contains a substantial amount of fibers while animal based products don't contain any. Fibers are very important.

Water
The water percentage of fruit (80%) is higher than that of meat (15%) and comes more near the water percentage of the human body (80%).
