Their system of Gracie jiu-jitsu was the superior fighting style.But now, with this book, Rorion is saying that even more important to him (than jiu-jitsu) is the Gracie Diet, a simple no-nonsense approach to healthy eating.After getting the Gracie brothers started on jiu-jitsu, Roroin's uncle, Carlos Gracie, then turned his attentions to developing the diet for optimum health. Though not trained at a university, Carlos read eveything he could get his hands on, on the subject, and then began experimenting via trail and error on himself and the large Gracie family as well.The results are the Gracie Diet, which consists of focusing on the most natural foods available (avoiding any kind of processed foods), lots of fruits and vegetables, with an emphasis on food combining. Carlos found that certain foods go with others and then some didn't mix with others at all, if one wanted to achieve ease in digestion, which he found greatly important.The Gracie Diet is not a "diet" in the normal sense of the word, it's not specifically designed to help you lose weight, but it is designed to help you achieve ultimate health, and therefore overweight people will lose weight in the process.
