I have been raw for about 3 months now and feel fantastic. After many years of struggling with digestive issues, IBS, and just always feeling rather crummy, this has been an amazing discovery for me. I have two concerns though perhaps someone has learned about this already?
I'm a little concerned about loosing muscle? It seems alot of the people I see on line promoting "raw" are very skinny with little muscle tone. I do "crossfit" 5 days a week which is quite demanding, and I'm just worried about not having enough protein to build muscle or at least maintain what I have.
Also, what about developing Candida with all this sugar? Albeit it's natural fruit sugar but doesn't the body still see it the same way as regular sugar? And Insulin resistance? what about that?
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. This is a great lifestyle, I just want to be sure I've not missed anything...
