[quote="Konstantin"]Their rules, their conscience, let them eat what they want. I think most Raw fooders are either somewhat determined people or people prepared to slip now and again. It's a shame we don't have a cheating raw fooder here, surely they could answer your question better than any of us.


Surely there are some over in The Other Board?

Some say the other board is a peaceful place where RAW foodists, 80/10/10 and ethical vegans all post without needless referencing to scientific journals. All we know is, our strength table is bigger than theirs. :twisted:

[quote="beforewisdom"]I was reading another forum.


I am the original poster and that is quoted from the original post. The bold facing is new. I wanted to emphasize the "another".....as in any, not especially "the other board" as it is not my desire to bust on anyone. My motivation was merely to express mild amazement at some minor irony.

I experimented with the raw food diet before I fully turned vegan. I have to admit I cheated a little and once in a while on a Friday night I would have a cold beer!

Raw food might be worth another try knowing all the vegan things I know now.

I experimented briefly with trying to eat at least mainly raw food, and I never drank but "cheated" a couple of times eating "very cooked" type cooked meals. If you are seriously committed to it, I don't think cheating makes much sense logically, but maybe it's an effective way to help people goal set realistically if they want to "be raw" but don't have really flexible thinking.

Turns out for me, "cheating" was a great way to discover what was useful out of raw food ideas (quite a lot), and what was not so useful. Now, more than half of everything I eat has some "cooked" component... I am eating marginally more cooked food than I think is optimal, but I do think eating some cooked food can be optimal (i.e. nutritionally superior to a well constructed raw food diet). The cooked food I eat is mainly a bit different to what it was before (and not just based on theory or on the obvious "health" ideas that one might likely arrive at in the same amount of time otherwise).

Maybe alcohol is even useful for some people. I just don't have the space/time to make good use of it in my current life without it interfering with other things.


PS come to think of it my parents are not raw foodists by any stretch of the imagination (cooked rice, wheat or potatoes every day and plenty of oil fried onions in use), but I'm pretty sure my father likes a raw home brewed beer or two.

I couldn't think of anything worse.

But to each his/her own.

I think I may have upset some raw foodists on the Vegans Facebook group.

I don't know how to link to a specific thread on Facebook. It's at the top at the moment.

I admire your attempts to reason with these lunatics, but there's really no point in conversing with someone who thinks eating toast is going to give you cancer.

Not all of them are that extreme.

It seems like these days few "raw foodists" are "100%" raw and a number of them no longer believe that plants have magic enzymes that survive digestion and provide benefits for human beings. For those folks it is a trendy thing in vegan circles, they are following along and claim they feel better eating a lot of salads.

Still silly, but not as extreme.

I really don't think I'm going to win this one.

[quote]What I mean by that is that all food has energy frequency. Raw foods vibrate at a high frequency. When we consume high vibrational foods, we also emanate that energy. And yes, the foods are great triggers for healing. Our bodies do the cleansing and the healing, but these foods are the trigger in the process.
