nature makes it so, that we strongly desire the food which best suits us.


Sounds great, but honestly, I desire fries and candy more than fruit.

Your welcome Vegdad!!!

Good for you End cruelty!!!

I think it's great when people are willing to try things for themselves....you got nothing to lose :wink:

one thing that will strike you is how hard it is to stop eating cooked stuff but how easy it is to quit raw stuff! :lol:

What does that tell you?

All the best to ya!

Raw Food Myths Exposed:

Topics covered

Can someone on a Low-Fat, Raw Vegan Diet build big muscles?

Where do you get your protein? Detailed answer.

If the raw food diet is the healthiest and most perfect diet, why are most raw foodists on supplements?

There is conjecture on eating a high fruit diet, is it really safe?

Are there any dangers of eating too much fat, even if it is raw?

Why do so many raw foodists have problems with their diet, degenerating health after a prolonged time on the diet or they can never fully engulf the diet and end up binging or at least heavily tempted?

Why did some of the early Hygienists have health problems?

My very first day as a vegan was all fruit. I'd decided to try this whole "vegetarian" thing, and all it took was 8 hours of consuming nothing but fruit for me to be convinced. I don't think you'll find too much difficulty on fruit. It is the most natural food for us.

That was a fantastic article, I could not have said it better myself... in fact I noticed a reference to herbivores and their 4 stomachs.... I'm pretty sure I've said these exact words myself at some time....

Herbivores eat predominantly leafy greens and vegetation, not necessarily exclusively. Yes, lettuces and vegetation is very healthy for us, but as fruitarians, we should eat alot more fruits/nuts than anything else.

I find that I get amazing nut cravings once in awhile, and especially in the evenings, not during the day tho.... how bout you Bigbwii?

:lol: :lol: :lol: You go boy!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

As for me I hardly ever crave fats!

I found that my body started to crave seasonal produce without me even realising the changes. So I pretty much eat the same thing until the season changes.

One thing I will say though is that it's all down to the individual to eat what they want/crave at any given moment, there are no strict rules to abide by with Fruitarianism/Raw Veganism, people tend to get too hung up on what am I "supposed" to eat that they don't enjoy what they are doing.

Fruitarians eat a wide spectrum of Raw foods.

I feel that too. As the weather started to warm up, I started thinking "Hmmm, I'd kill for a watermelon right about now."

I agree on the second part too, just eat whatever you want. Deer eat all the fruit they can handle, and they don't watch their Vitamin A intake or count their calories.
