Dr. Gabriel Cousens Rainbow Green Live Food Cuisine – How to Do a No Fruit Diet
Do you enjoy fruit?
Or does it hurt your teeth? When I came to living foods, I ate very little fruit. The juice seeping down into my cavities was too painful.
Does fruit trigger carb cravings in you?
Every summer when I blend a lot of watermelon, I want alcohol. It’s too much sugar hitting my blood stream at once, just like a beer. I’m okay with all other fruit. But come the summer, as soon as I begin blending watermelon, I want a beer!
I believe passionately that Fruit is one of the Top 3 Healthy Foods on earth, along with leafy greens and Omega-3 seeds (chia, flax, hemp).
You need seeds and greens for your human brain. And fruit for energy.
Fruit Starves Cancer
Did you know, the Nutritional Oncology Research Institute uses a high-fruit diet to reverse cancer?
Stunning model Candice-Marie Fox was diagnosed with stage 3 thyroid cancer in 2011 at age 28. After surgery and radiation, it spread. Then she switched to NORI’s high-fruit protocol. Today Candice is cancer-free — read her story here.
Cancer cells are dependent on the amino acid methionine to survive. Can you guess which food has no methionine?
Yep, Fruit… Fruit starves cancer!
Today I eat as much fruit as I want whenever I want. I have zero restrictions.
Dr. Doug Graham inspired me to lose my fear of fruit in his book, The 80/10/10/ Diet.
But what about you? Your biochemistry is different from mine. Do you enjoy fruit? Or does it affect you adversely?
If you find yourself intuitively wary of fruit at this time in your life, then…
… you may want to try raw vegan medical doctor Gabriel Cousens’ Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine.
Dr. Cousens cuts out all fruit for three months!
Why No Fruit Sugar?
Dr. Cousens is convinced that sugar is a primary culprit behind disease, because sugar feeds mold, fungus, yeast, and viruses. These critters are nature’s composting tools.
Many people today have an excess of fungal growth in their system. We call this “mycosis.”
Sweet foods, even if natural and raw, are mycosis-producing, writes Dr. Cousens in his book, Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine (all Dr. Cousens quotes below are from this book).
That’s not my experience with fruit. But I’m healthy and fit. I eat living foods every day! My blood and cells are clean, not full of mold and fungi :)
Dr. Cousens is working with ill patients who come to his Center for healing — the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center in Arizona.
I’ve no doubt that for them, fruit could feed all the bad critters in their blood.
Dr. Cousens’ recipes are low-sweet, low-fungus, and low mycotoxin-producing. And raw vegan of course!
Over 300 pages of his book are Recipes!
How Does Mycosis Develop?
Since Antoine Béchamp’s work in the late 1800’s, researchers have postulated the “pleomorphic theory.”
Pleomorphism states that micro-organisms (microbes) can evolve from one form of life to another. A microscopic organism (unseen by your naked eye) can go from microbe to virus to bacterium to yeast to fungus to mold, and can even de-evolve back to a pre-virus again.
Bechamp discovered that the smallest living unit in nature is not the cell, it’s what he called “microzyma.” Today the word is “protits” or “somatids.”
Béchamp watched this evolution and de-evolution under his microscope. Over the past 150 years, multiple scientists have documented this pleomorphic phenomenon. Most famous today are the films of Dr. Robert O. Young.
It all depends on the terrain, your internal environment. When you eat acid food and think negative thoughts, you begin to self-compost. Protids in your cells and blood will morph into viruses and up the ladder all the way to fungus and mold.
In a healthy clean body, these tiny protits (0.001 microns) form a colloidal energetic field both inside and outside your cells. Your blood, lymph, interstitial fluids, and the fluid inside your cells is filled with energetic protits.
When you are healthy, they are happy. They bounce around with a big smile on their face. They form healthy colloids throughout your body.
A colloid is a liquid with teeny particles suspended in it. Protits are too large to dissolve in water, and too small to settle out, so they stay suspended in your bodily fluids.
In this state, your protits are life builders. You enjoy optimal health with clean, energetic, protit-filled, colloidal fluids.
Now comes the scary part. When your blood and other bodily fluids begin to fill up with acids like white sugar, heavy metals and stress molecules, your protits switch jobs. They go from builders to recyclers. They begin to clean up the waste dump.
They change into morbid forms, like fungi and mold, and begin to eat (ferment) the waste. Your self-composting button is switched on.
They not only eat sugar, they hit on your DNA, proteins, enzymes and hormones. Dr. Cousens writes:
“They live off our tissues and vital fluids, and as they increasingly give off mycotoxins (in essence, their fecal waste), they further imbalance and acidify the system and create favorable conditions for more of these pleomorphic organisms to grow and, therefore, increase the state of mycosis.”
In short, a toxic terrain breeds toxic critters (think stagnant water and mosquitoes)…
…whose poop in turn, makes the terrain even more toxic…
…so more protits morph into pathological forms.
…you’re caught in a cycle you need to escape from!
Not surprisingly, modern medicine does not agree. Their opposing theory is that you catch bacteria and viruses from the outside. There’s no teeny protits changing into different life forms on the inside.
Be that as it may, Dr. Cousens has found that:
“a low-sweet, live-food, non-acidic diet and a healthy mind are the key factors in turning off the composting button and reestablishing vibrant health.”
If you don’t feed them, they won’t come :)
Rainbow Green Chart & Recipes
In three months, you can return to normal healthy red blood cells and colloidal protits.
Dr. Cousens has a very specific diet you must follow for 90 days. He calls it the Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine.
This chart shows you what foods to eat in each phase of Dr. Cousens’ recovery program.
Recipes are from the book Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine Additional Recipes, Volume 1, created by the Tree of Life Café at Dr. Cousens’ Rejuvenation Center in Arizona.

3 Phases of Rainbow Green
Dr. Cousens’ program has three phases:
For highly myco-toxic people. You have a bad case of fungal or yeast infection.
For 3 months, you eat:
- All raw vegetables, and vegetable fruits like avocado, tomato, cucumber, squash, bell peppers,
- Nuts and seeds,
- Grasses and leafy greens,
- Legumes and sprouts,
- Lemon and lime,
- Sea vegetables — like nori, dulse, kelp,
- Chlorella and Spirulina for extra protein, and
- High-colloidal foods rich in the three super-colloid minerals (iridium, rhodium, gold) — that’s aloe leaf, grape seeds, slippery elm, watercress, sheep sorrel, and leafy greens.
For sweetener in Phase 1, Dr. Cousens uses fresh coconut pulp. This pulp is rich in caprylic acid which is anti-fungal, and in lauric acid which is anti-viral.
You must NOT eat dried coconut which can be mycotoxic — as are all dried foods, stored for an indefinite time.
For cases of mild to moderate mycosis.
Here you eat all the Phase 1 foods, plus:
- Raw carrots and hard squashes,
- Low-glycemic fruits — like grapefruit and berries,
- Fermented foods — like raw miso, apple cider vinegar, sauerkraut, kimchee, kefir, and
- The non-stored pseudo-grains — wild rice, buckwheat, quinoa, amaranth.
You can use fresh coconut water for sweetener, in addition to coconut pulp, plus mesquite and stevia.
Dr. Cousens advises to eat the phase 2 way for the rest of your life! He writes:
“[It] offers a very healthy, enjoyable, long-term health-building delicious cuisine.”
In Phase 2 you eat everything in Phase 1.5 plus:
- Small amount of moderate-glycemic fruits — like oranges, apples, pears, peaches, plums, pomegranates, and
- High-glycemic fruits occasionally, after the composting switch is turned off.
I can’t agree. For me, I need to eat every fruit as it comes into season. I would not dream of going without my sweet-sweet mangoes in December, lychees in January, and Hanepoot grapes in February (in South Africa where I live, it’s our 3 summer months).
As a fruit comes into season, I eat a ton of it, as much as I want. This is a big no-no in Phase 2 of Rainbow Green!
Did you know, you can give Type 2 diabetics sweet fruits like grapes, lychees and bananas, and they have perfectly normal blood sugar, the same as healthy subjects? See this study:
The fact is, your best calorie sources are fruit, fat (nuts, seeds, avocado), grains, and beans. If you eat little cooked food — say a cup of cooked beans a day, as I do — then you must turn to raw fruit or fat for your calories.
Dr. Gabriel Cousens prefers fat. Dr. Doug Graham in The 80/10/10/ Diet favors fruit. I’m more of a Doug Graham follower. I live in a country rich with fresh fruit :)
If you feel that fruit is not right for you, then try Dr. Cousens’ Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine for three months.
It’s best to buy his book here. He gives tips on how to develop the best diet for yourself.
However, over the long term, my advice is: Re-introduce all fruits one-by-one. If you get a strong blood sugar reaction, then eat leafy greens with them.
The fiber in the greens slows down the fruit sugar. It stops it from reaching your bloodstream too quickly.
After eating a high-sweet fruit like mango, it’s good to test your blood sugar with a Blood Glucose Monitor.
3 Keys to Healthy Living
When you eat more ‘n more raw foods, you grow happier and healthier :)
Your depression automatically lifts. You’re eating the food created for you.
What are the 3 Keys to an Abundant Life?
- Nutrition — eat high-raw plant-strong,

Do you recall I quoted Dr. Cousens above, saying: “a healthy mind [is a] key factor in turning off the composting button.”
Here’s 3 daily affirmations to help your Mindset soar into joy:
- I look at everything that happens to me and see the GIFT in it.
- I am creating the life of my dreams for the highest good of all.
- I unconditionally forgive [you-know-who] and say, Thank you for giving me that experience.
