Bigbwii,

what do you think of dry food? I like it a lot, but of course it is not in a natural state anymore.

And what about grains like oat? It's a good source for carbs and protein, but I don't know if it can do harm to your body. In Germany there was a big discussion about using grains at all. Some 'gurus' said that grains are the enimy no. 1 for your body. I have read some very interesting books about this and I try to avoid bread as much as possible, but, I have to admit.. I am addicted to bread.

Today is my firts day of going 100% raw again. I have been raw some years ago for a couple of months and I felt fine. But I am so addicted to 'tasty' cooked food and I have no discipline :cry:

And by the way, what do you think of soy protein? Do you have any idea how it is been made?

Hi nobby! my thing is knowing that nothing is what it is supposed to be anymore! I really don't take any notice of what gurus say anymore! and the way I look at all this is that if the body can put up with the effects of cooked food then it can put up with anything!!! if raw is the way you want to go make sure you have no doubts about it and write down your thoughts and goals before the mind gets clogged up with cravings!!!! go for it and don't look back and if you get problems just make adjustments and keep on going!!! be mindful that nothing is clean anymore! Once you come to terms with that then you will be ok! forget about guru's because most of them are lying to you so you buy their books! just remember it's all down to your efforts! :wink:

Ok. Agree, but generally, do you think that oat fits in raw diet?

No way!!!!! think of it like this, would you eat oats raw in it's natural state? if you were stranded on a tropical island what and how would you eat? would you eat leaves or fruits? it's all about what comes "natural"
