Diet Books

After 40 years of being a would-be fruitarian, what are the diet books that remain in my memory?
Reading Morris Krok's "Fruit the Food and Medicine for Man" was probably the most influential event in my life. This occurred in January, 1971, when the planets Mars and Jupiter  happened to meet at a point within one tenth of a degree of my natal Mars! While at the same moment Neptune was less than one degree away. This was on the 25th. Exactly 4 days after my first steps on this path were taken: a 36-hour dry fast. (A bad way to start, I'd say today!)

Krok's book also introduced me to Arnold Ehret's "Mucousless Diet Healing System", which at once became my bible, just as it did his.

Another most influential book was Adolf Just's "Return to Nature!", which revolutionised the rest of my life. At once I gave up hot baths for cold, stopped shaving or cutting my hair, went barefoot where possible and stopped using soap, toothpaste etc.

Other memorable books in those first years were "Raw Eating" by A. T. Hovanessian and "Love your Body" by Viktoras Kulvinskas. Also "The Grape Cure" by Johanna Brandt.

About 4 or 5 years later, I read Gandhi's "Experiment with Truth". By this time the documented experiences of Essie Honiball also became a powerful influence. (I met her, and she gave me a copy of the draft for her first book)
