[quote="Ralph Waldo Emerson"]A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds
I would hazard a guess that raw foodists who believe that it's ok to have beer and cake are having beer and cake because they enjoy having beer and cake.
So let's say that people on a diet sometimes like bending their own rules for a treat. And then not only that but as their treat, they choose alcohol and sweet food over a baked potato. It all sounds pretty sinister to me.
