"Living in South Africa at the age of 40, Mohandas K. Gandhi often walked to and from his village home to the capital of Johannesburg, 21 miles away, in a single day. Arising at 2 A.M., Gandhi ate breakfast along the way, then had dinner upon his return at 5:30 in the afternoon before retiring early in the evening. His diet consisted largely of raw bananas, lemons, peanuts, oranges, and olive oil; he avoided all cooked foods entirely."
