...leaving me sad and doubtful. I just saw her yesterday, and told her I had gone raw (heehee) from 80-100% on any given day.
I thought she would be supportive and I was really excited to tell her about my new discovery, but she poo-poohed it, bringing up the matter of protein (oi), the fact that all raw food is too demanding on the body for enzymes to be digested (wait a minute—isn’t that really what raw food is about, it supplies the body with way more enzymes than a cooked diet??) and also that raw isn’t sustainable in the long term (I brought up the facts: there are thriving people who have been raw for decades, and not to mention athletes!)
I’m just feeling blue because I found a gem and one of the people I thought would be excited tried to dull it for me :(
