  • Hello everyone, Interesting, possibly this topic can tell us something about how we can inspire others to try this diet? I first read about it while reading Steve Pavlina's blog ( http://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2007/12/raw-foods/ ). I think Steve …
  • I have no idea wether the alternative way of dehydrating you describe would work. But you can certainly follow a raw diet without dehydrating at all, more fresh too.
  • Hello, Thanks for the input. Spending time on staying healthy is a good thing, I agree; one needs health to enjoy life. But I don't want to be spending so much time on staying healthy, cause I want to have time left to enjoy life. Also, I think simi…

  • Hello Julian, I took and would take mostly a bunch of nuts. You'll have to rely on the place you are going to provide raw foods, because you can't take enough for a week and keep them fresh for a week anyway. Nuts are a little harder to find raw, an…
  • I've found Google the most useful tool so far, especially when using Firefox, in which case you can just enter something in the bar at the top right, like '12 kg in pounds'. Another useful tool is Wolfram|Alpha: www.wolframalpha.com . Just enter '3 …

  • Sorry, I would have no idea where to get what you as. I was personally under the impression that ethanol is chemically synthesised (acid-catalyzed hydration of ethylene, as first demonstrated by Michael Faraday) so there wouldn't be any organisms in…
  • Well, you already stated for yourself that almost every nutritionist will give a different answer to the question of what to eat. It therefore would make no sense if we all would give our individual answers, as they will certainly differ based on ou…
  • Hello Jennifer Personally I went from a 'standard' diet that the average person eats to full raw with the start of a new day (of course with some weeks of research). For me that worked really well, I find that if I make one exception it's too easy t…
  • There's a lot of carbohydrates and glucose in fruits so don't worry about it. Look some fruits up on wolfram|alpha or another nutrient site: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=banana . As you'll see bananas for example are in the glucose top 10% o…
  • Hello Sara, Well, the diet is significantly more expensive than you could otherwise eat. You could * Find cheap places to shop (Aldi was mentioned) * Eat many banana's, they provide relatively cheap calories * Eating many nuts or other high-fat thin…

  • Hello Ida, I don't drink alcohol but it's not very hard for me because I never really liked it that much. I don't because I think it's not the most optimal way of eating/drinking. In my opinion, it's like other exceptions to the diet: every step tow…
    in Do you drink alcohol? Comment by M42
  • Hello, Well, I think everything there is to say has been said, so I will add no more to the conversation for now. You start every line with 'again', 'here it is again' or 'didn't I post', followed by something you already said. I've read it the firs…
  • Hello, Sorry for the short reply, time is scarce, but I think it'll appear equally unclear as my longer posts. I think there are quite some religious people that believe religion can (and has) been proven. I agree this could be a more scientific sub…
  • Hello, Well, I have nothing to say about radiation (or cars or candles) being or not being dangerous that I have not already said. But the other topics you discussed are interresting. Certainly people have the right to believe what they want if it d…
  • What I said has nothing to do with the distance of the sun. It was the energy (frequency) per photon (light particle), which doesn't change when the sun comes closer or goes further away. I already spoke about the intensity and distance in my first …
  • Hello, Excuse me for taking so long to reply (haven't had time to read this forum for a while); I'll gladly clarify my post considering there appears to be some doubt bout it. Certainly frequency says a lot about how harmful radiation is; X-rays (~1…
  • Hello Raquel and everyone else here, Here's my idea about computer radiation being harmful. - Wireless networks are much weaker than for example the radiation emitted by people's cellphones, which is apparent from the fact that cellphones can connec…
  • I take B12 supplements. The consequences when getting a B12 deficiency is quite large and I don't see a practical downside to supplementing (except maybe cost).

  • Hello nurse and Fateh, Thank you for your feedback. I ordered a book about sprouting a few days ago (it hasn't arrived yet) to help me get started with that. Most likely that will help both in getting more calories and in introducing more seeds. Als…

  • Thanks for the replies everyone! I'm eating much fewer cashews now, I eat the suggetsed other nuts in their place but not as many. Eating few nuts and especially less cashews seems to work nicely. About the over- or undereating I was wondering.. is …

  • Hello freewitheft and kt, Thanks for the ideas. I'll try to keep track of foods and energy/clarity for a while to see to see if I find any relationship. It may also help to find defficiencies and check total calories (though I think that's fine... I…

  • Hello Ketrin, Thanks a lot for your story; very inspiring to go on for a while :-) As for the sleeping pattern - I'm trying to get up earlier and (especially) at more constant times. When going to bed at night I'm unusually restless, itchy and it ca…

  • Hello, I think the explanation people use for the raw diet is partly that enzymes pre-digest food before it goes through the stomach (after which they are destroyed). That would suggest enzymes are important. From what I learned, enzymes are not des…

  • I think there are just way too many people. Even if a convenient way is found for everyone to be a raw vegan, we're still having a much too large impact on the world. What would we really miss if there'd be only 1/20 of the current number of people?…
  • Hello Marc, It's most likely part of detox so it should go away after a while. I found nuts to have a somewhat grounding effect though, you could try that. But it will only help a bit; time should solve the rest. Good luck on staying raw this time, …
  • Hello everyone, Looking at a species close to humans physiologically (chimps); they are not technically 100% vegan either. They occasionally eat insects, which are animals and made of meat. However, I don't think that a diet is bad just because it e…
    in 100% vegan or not Comment by M42
  • Hello Deb, I can't tell from my own experience as I've started quite recently. However, I've read about people who had been raw for a significant time and felt like reaching a plateau, and who experienced a boost in the diet's benefits by consuming …
    in Reaching a Raw Plateau Comment by M42
  • Hello Raw food does provide clarity but I've found that in the beginning it also enhances some feelings disproportionality and can be somewhat confusing. Personally I tried to start way too many things during the first weeks (which I'm still in). It…
  • Hello, I recognize your situation - I've always wanted to live somewhere with more sunlight but the feeling has intensified since I started the raw diet (also just some weeks ago). It could be the coldness of this particular winter but I don't think…
  • Hello Cherie, In reply to your "I like how feeling great and choosing a certain way of life is a "fanatical obsession....." to one person but an awesome way of life for another." It's not that weird - what you said perfectly fits religion, as well a…
