  • I would be very careful—at about 8 months, iron needs increase. I once saw a breastfeeding mom with a 9 month old that was hardly eating any other solids and he got to be extremely anemic. If you could get hemoglobin checks that might be a good idea…
  • Maybe, no longer receiving stimulants or stimulating food, you’re in touch with the fact that you need more sleep. Even if you sleep a good amount, you could have a sleep deficit from before that you need to make up. Is the fat in addition to the ol…
  • Pianissima has great points—it is very hard to overeat fresh fruits and veggies. Fats are easy to overeat (since small amounts can be too much). Same for dried fruits. Blended, ground, or juiced foods are also easier to overeat, since you don’t have…

  • Anytime you eat more than you need and feels good, in bulk or calories—could be any of the three things you listed. But also remember that it is a normal part of transition and helps slow detox, making it more manageable. It’s tough to get used to t…

  • I often do like simple. I personally wouldn’t do a grain, I would do a leafy green (like kale) and a fruit (berries are super nutritious. Higher-sugar fruits are better for calories). And if a third food, hemp seed or avocado for some fattiness. Gra…
  • Some people store weight preferentially in their stomach and it is genetic, nothing else. Lowering body fat % with ideas listed above will be the only thing that will help in this case—aerobics and strength training, in addition to diet (including l…
  • I would rather get my calories from fruit and sprouts (or even cooked veggies and legumes) than all that oil. Oil is super processed and does not even have all the nutrients of nuts and seeds. (Greens are great but of course not very calorie-dense).…
  • I also think your doctor is very ignorant about nutrition. Wouldn’t hurt to do blood tests, and then you could show your doctor how much healthier you are eating like this.
  • The fact that cayenne is medicinal (with the effects you state, which is all true) would precisely indicate to me that it should not be taken regularly. It is mildly toxic (though not to the point that it would kill you in normal doses), and that’s …
  • No rules, no raw food police. Just gradually try and increase the fresh fruits and veggies you eat. This is a vegan board, so no dairy/meat/eggs etc.
  • Ground flax is a laxative, I love it :) I agree, it’s different than other nuts/seeds

  • Not raw at all, just a scam.

  • In my opinion, the ones with any green at all are under-ripe. I only eat them with brown spots. We in the north are just used to them being picked green, so we aren’t used to them ripe. Of course, if it’s brown INside and tastes bad, it’s probably r…
  • Sproutpeople.com is a great resource, they recommend certain legumes for sprouting and not others. I don’t think black beans are normally recommended.
  • Keep processing and processing (or blending) until the oils start to come out. If you think you can’t do it anymore (my K-tec started to smell after awhile), then you can add some oil or water (I did water) to make it stick. It won’t be as creamy as…
  • I thought 60-95 was high raw. It means not 100%, but a high percentage of the diet is raw—at least to me.

  • I used the Billings Method to find out when I was ovulating, based on my own body’s signals..and still got pregnant, when everyone I knew who knew about the method said it was not possible. I’m on the Nuva Ring now—no daily pill to remember and low …
  • It is super creamy either way, but for me, a little more liquidy in the blender since I have to add a slight amount of liquid to get it to go. Obviously much less than if you used a normal one. When I use my juicer it comes out more like soft serve.…
  • Quite frankly, there is no hard evidence that raw is better (or not better, or worse!). That doesn’t mean it is true or not true, just that it hasn’t been studied by science. “Unproven” and “untrue” are different things. Find what works for you, tha…
  • I went vegan for ethical vegans, not because I disliked the taste. So if I can get cruelty-free food that tastes like meat, why not? If you can also avoid the negative karma and health effects of meat, while eating food with similar flavors, why not…
  • Yes, if it doesn’t get better, see a doctor. kellygoneraw, flax is a powerful laxative, especially if you aren’t used to it. That’s why it’s usually recommended to have a just a few tablespoons a day—just one or two. If you start small and work your…
  • Probably food poisoning—which is actually more common that you’d think. It’s something that can happen from time to time, and it sucks, but the best thing to do is just take in liquids and rest as much as you can until it pasts. You could try a pain…
  • Just to specify, David Wolfe says the 1/3 of each ratio should be based on the dry weight (people correct me if I’m wrong!). Doing it by calories would be quite different. Just to throw it out there—there’s also the 80/10/10 diet—80% carbs, 10% prot…
  • The raw food place by me sprouts and then dehydrates lentils (I think mixed with sundried tomatoes and maybe walnuts, not sure) and spices them like sausage. Super good.
  • I did green smoothies for months in a regular blender..it was slower and I’d get bigger chunks for spinach stems and kale, but it worked fine.
  • Will you be able to maintain your weight? It’s true about the zinc, there are some micronutrients it will be hard to get without those foods. Avocados will give you easy-to-digest fat, but don’t provide zinc, iron, selenium.
  • I know putting them in the fridge makes them turn black…but is that really bad? And frozen bananas processed into ice cream is super yummy. What was the reasoning? Also: the DV of iron for bananas is 3%. Maybe high for a fruit, but not high overall.…

  • Yes, I do room temperature for this reason. Though my kitchen is almost the same temp as my fridge!
  • I do twice—I’m too active to get by on 1 meal regularly—though sometimes a 24 hr fast is nice. But eating too frequently is not longevity promoting. It’s good to give your body time to detox and fully digest instead of graze—grazing for humans is ov…
  • It’s probably just a matter of giving your stomach time to adjust and learn to digest these potent and healthy foods. I would also take care with chewing, making sure you chew everything down to nearly liquid before swallowing.
