All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

Nishi Shiki was invented in 1927 by Katsuzō Nishi, the chief engineer for the Tokyo subway and an aikido teacher.

Most of my life I followed the first four rules every day, and substituted the rest with yoga asanas. 

Laws of the Nishi Health System 

  1. heisho (平床寝台) - sleep on a flat hard surface, 
  2. kochin (硬枕利用) - with hard semi-cylindrical pillow,
  3. kingyo undō (金魚運動) - wing your hips horizontally like fish (1 minute),
  4. mōkan undō (毛管運動) - lie on your back and raise your arms and legs, then shake them (1 minute),
  5. gasshō gasseki undō (合掌合蹠運動) - lie on your back and join your hands and feet, then slide your hands and feet horizontally (10 times). 
  6. hifuku undō (背腹運動) - sit down Japanese style and swing your upper body centering on your hips (10 minutes). When you are in inclined position, pump your abdomen, in upright position - shrink your abdomen.

Albert Schweitzer

The thinking man must oppose all cruel customs no matter how deeply rooted in tradition and surrounded by a halo. When we have a choice, we must avoid bringing torment and injury into the life of another, even the lowliest creature; to do so is to renounce our manhood and shoulder a guilt which nothing justifies. 

Nutrient-Dense Food

Nutrient-dense foods are foods that have a lot of nutrients but relatively few calories.

Nutrient-dense foods and beverages contain: vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, and other beneficial substances that may have positive health effects.

They are also naturally lean or low in saturated fat, and have little or no added saturated fat, sugars, refined starches, and sodium.

Examples of nutrient dense foods are: beans and peas, fresh fruit, unsalted nuts and seeds, vegetables, whole grains - most fruitarian foods are nutrient-dense.
