Ok, you do not 'peel' a pomegranate, you cut it in half, then one fourth, then arch the back and then remove the yummy red seeds.
I did go through a fasting binge once, a fruit juice fast for three days. I lost three kilos (unintentional) , got over insomnia, (was too hungry to stay awake), felt very peaceful and rested, was all praise for the Naturopathy (Nature cure) ashram near Pune where this happened, and, never fasted again.
I do love fruits, though. Sprouts are supposed to be as good as fruits, if not better.
