Hello friends, it's nice to meet you!
I adopted the raw vegan diet since some 5 years ago and I am very happy with it.
In my view, the avocado is the best food, because it's the only fruit/vegetable that has so much fat. It keeps you running for hours and it is also very healthy. I eat a lot of avocado every day. The rest of the food I am eating (tomato, bell pepper, onion) is more for taste than for necessity.
I noticed that the vast majority of the people give up the raw vegan diet after a short while. And my conclusion is that reducing the stress is the key for being able to maintain this diet.
The stress affects the eating appetite, more than most of the people feel comfortable to admit.
When we have too much stress of when we have a chaotic or a meaningless/pointless life, those psychological disorders are affecting our eating appetite, in a way that nobody can resist. Therefore, being a raw vegan is not a matter of strong will at all. It is simply a matter of living a responsible and meaningful life.
The raw food is not a diet, not a sport, not even a religion. It is simply a lifestyle. If we want to be raw foodists and to have a very good health, then we must be ready to shape all our life and our being in a way to make ourselves compatible with this diet. In fact, we are actually becoming capable to live the human life as we are actually supposed to live it: healthy, happy, joyful, responsible, balanced, stable, comfortable, honest, constructive, and above all, a meaningful life.
The point is not to change ourselves just for being capable to keep a diet, of course. But the beauty of this diet is in the fact that it is actually showing us the way to the meaningful life, the return to ourselves, and how to respect and value the Universal laws.
It would be strange to imagine a completely healthy human being that has a healthy body but an unhealthy mind. Having real health means being in good shape at all levels: physical, emotional and mental. Those who limit themselves at the health for the physical body will never really be able to be raw foodists. You are either going forward or else you will have to go back. This is the raw food diet, in my view.
