  • Absolutely! I healed from chronic depression, anxiety and severe panic attacks via 100% raw diet. I’ve read of many people who have resolved mental/emotional issues including autism and schizophrenia by going raw. Blessings, Audrey

  • Hello there, You can always just say that you are not very hungry that day, and you can also just say that you are trying to include more fresh fruits and veggies in your diet. Nobody can argue with either of those two things. Then just quickly cha…
  • Hi there, I healed from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, panic attacks and anxiety, obesity,hormonal imbalances and chronic bladder infections and pain via the raw diet, eating mostly a high fruit, low fat diet. …
  • No worries. You DO NOT need salt. We get plenty of natural sodium from fruits and veggies. Tomatoes and celery in particular. Blessings! Audrey 
  • Oh my gosh!! Bananas are a wonderful food!! They are super nutritious, cheap, easy and readily available. Eat as much as you want of them and of any fruit for that matter. Fruit is our natural food. Glucose is our number 1 nutritional requirement an…
  • Hi there, To lose weight you should try cutting out the fats (oils, nuts, seeds, avocados, durian, coconut) in your diet and focus on fruit and greens. This will probably greatly improve your acid reflux as well. Blessings, Audrey
  • Hi Guys, Rice papers are cooked. Sorry. You can get raw nori sheets though and roll stuff up in them. I second the suggestion to do some soups and dips and pates. Dips and pates based on sunflower seeds (super cheap) can be easily whipped up in a …
  • I lost about 80lbs, healed from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, anxiety, hormonal imbalances, chronic bladder infections and inflammation and other smaller health problems. Gained happiness, clarity, energy, enth…
  • Hello there, There is absolutely NO reason at all to worry. Becoming a raw vegan is THE BEST thing you could do get better calcium absorption and utilization from your body. First of all, eliminating animal products automatically helps a great dea…

  • Hi there, I briefly had this problem big time and this is what I learned: Stay away from things that are notoriously difficult to digest such as nuts, seeds, and tough vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, kale, collards, chard cabbage etc… Some…

  • Oh Yes!!!! And then some! I;ve lost almost 100 lbs! You can check out my before and after pics on my “My Story” page on my website www.rawhealing.com Blessings! Audrey
  • Hello there, I’ve lost over 80lbs on raw. You can check out my before and after pics on my website. Many people can lose a great deal of weight eating any thing they want as long as its raw, but some people need to limit their fat intake, particul…
  • Hello all, I eat about 98% fruit including a lot of “hybridized fruit” and I feel better than I ever have. I definitely do not worry about it. Fruit is our natural diet. Humans have been “hybridizing” fruit for a long, long time. It doesn’t meant t…
  • Hi there, I don’t worry about it all. I never worried about when I was cooked, so why should I worry now? :-) Seriously, those RDAs are based on cooked fooders. I think raw foodists have more efficient assimiliation of nutrients and therefore need…
  • Hi there, You should definitely not exercise or even try to maintain a normal work/life schedule if you are truly fasting (on water only). You need to rest while you are fasting. If you want to do a cleansing program that will allow you to do the …

  • Hi Pam, Unfortunatley, if you are getting uncomfortable feelings from eating fruit, you need to reduce your fat intake. Too much fat in the system interferes with the utilization of glucose and can cause those feelings. While you are waiting to get…
    in Low fat raw food Comment by chilove
  • Hello! I eat a high fruit/very low fat diet. I just gravitated toward eating this way over the years that I’ve been raw because I noticed that my body and mind and spirit felt the best when I ate lighter. I have way more energy, sleep better and ha…

  • Hi there, Shop at produce stands and produce stores instead of grocery stores. Produce stores in my city tend to be 50% cheaper than grocery stores. Asian and other ethnic markets also usually have better deals on produce. At whatever store you sho…
  • That is so awesome!!!! Congratulations! Raw is amazing!! Being a positive influence on others is the best thing about being raw. When other people see you losing weight, recovering from chronic illness and feeling so much healthier and happier they …

  • Hi James and Zoe!! Thanks for the compliments!!! Mono eating is the ideal of eating raw. No one should rush into it. I took several years to get here. I wouldn’t have felt satisfied being mono when I first went raw. Raw recipes and transitional food…
  • Hi James, I don’t believe in superfoods. The body itself is “super”. : -) Our bodes do the healing, not any substances we put it in it. We get all the nutrition we need from plain old fruits, veggies, and much smaller amounts of nuts and seeds. Th…
  • Hi there, Like Nagev says, you really don’t need to worry about getting “enough” protein on raw. Fruits and veggies have all the protein we need. Simple and easy! All the best, Audrey 
  • Hi there, I’ve been raw for nearly three years and I’ve tried all the different approaches that you mentioned. By far, I feel the best eating a high fruit, low fat diet. I have way more energy, enthusiasm, and better overall general health eating t…

  • Hello there, I eat mostly mono meals (one item at a time) of fruit with occasional salads. An example of a typical day for me would be: One large honeydew melon for breakfast 5 or 6 bananas for lunch. I often blend them up with a tiny bit of wat…
