  1. 80/10/10 is but one variation of a raw food diet. Another variation is "sprouted" vegan. Incidentally sprouted lentils have more protein and are a more complete protein than cooked.
  2. Yes. Muscles need protein to repair and grow on rest days.
  3. There are some concerns that too much fruit can lead to pancreatic cancer. That's why I think a good diet should include alot of leafy greens as well as sprouted legumes, nuts, and seeds.
  4. If you really want to lose weight, try seaweed snacks (organic). They're also loaded with important minerals that are hard to find elsewhere.
  5. If your nuts are raw you should soak them.
  6. 80/10/10 is overrated. Raw leafy greens are important and will certainly help you bring the weight down.
  7. I have been vegan since 1999, have never had any symptoms of B12 deficiency, and take just one sublingual a month. (methylcobalamin, 5000mcg)
  8. This is actually a question that does come up, mostly among raw vegans, and the answer is that coconut oil has been successfully proven to raise cholesterol levels that are too low to healthy levels.
  9. If you listen to the naysayers, the more nuts and seeds you incorporate into your diet then the more likely you are of having a mineral deficiency. (because of phytic acid)
  10. Because it uses up valuable farmland that could be better served by planting seedlings that would feed more people.
  11. 2 tbs ground flax + 200 mg vegan DHA softgel checking in
  12. You might overdose on Vitamin A from spirulina but it would take a lot of work to do so.
  13. It means there may be traces (but not large amounts) of milk or whatever other food that are listed.
  14. 1. abs have to do with genetics to a certain degree 2. heavy compound lifts will help bring out the abs on their own 3. cardio is useful for losing some fat so the abs will show That being said I believe that one can still eat plenty of bananas while having and maintaining a six-pack.
  15. Other than nuts: Seeds, such as pumpkin, sunflower, and sesame. Also when looking for soy/false meats make sure you check out tempeh.
  16. Fish meat, poultry meat, eggs, some small game meat(like bunnies), in SMALL quantities are generally good for your health. If you believe in an alkaline based diet, meat will not help you it is always just too acidic.
  17. Alot of people ignore bell peppers which are technically fruit.
  18. On the other hand going 100% raw (for a long period) takes alot of commitment and dedication.
  19. It's too bad the higher prices we have been paying in the last few years for quinoa hasn't helped at all.
