Can somebody give me one good reason not to go raw? I challenge you to find one good, serious reason not to go high or full raw. There simply are no cons to going raw, right?
I can't give you a reason not to go raw. Good Luck with this, it's pretty tough to ride through the cravings. I know...I am still working my way through it!
If you think it's hard to find Vegan food when you travel, raw is harder.
Detox - they call it detox, I call it an adjustment period. When if first went vegan I was tired and grumpy and what not. The same can be said for raw while you find the food s that agree with you and give you energy.
Caffine -I love my caffine, mainly my coffee, which is why I am not sure I'll ever go entirely raw. Altough they claim herbal teas are raw (seep below 115 degrees), so I don't see what is wrong with green tea.
Alcohol - I live in a resort and do drink occassionally. This would mean no more beer which is my favorite. Although organic red, no sulffites added, is raw and vodka is up for debate.
These cons are based on what I am used to and my resistance to change, which is why I am transitioning. It may take years for me, but it'd be nice to have someone else along for the ride!
Storm recommends transistioning to help limit detox. We are already to the vegan stage, so from here he recommends raw all day with a cooked dinner for a month. Then next, raw all week with a cooked meal once per week. The allow it once per month. Finally going all raw.
The biggest issue is wading through a lot of peoples opinions on what is raw and what isn't, as well as what is best and what isn't. There is a lot of information both good and bad out there. In the end you decide what you are comfortable with.
