Most of china, most of thailand, most of east asia really, ...all medieval peasants, a lot of people stay slim on low fat cooked diets.
Thank you for your response, I was just curious if it was possible. :)
Yes it does work, check Dr Fuhrman's eat to live (no fat & no grains ) or Dr McDougall's Program (no fat but this time grains are allowed ), although I really don't recommend grains because they're so addictive, this should give you an idea about cooked low fat high carb diets.
I hope that helps :)
Yeah, thanks for your reply. I have read that book and I even own 2 copies. Its a great book but the recommended calories are between 1400-2000 and I know I need more than that daily. But if I'm trying to lose weight I don't wanna be starving or feeling dead. I might be able to adjust it some:) Thanks for the recommendation:)
Ummmm, I was 100% high carb raw vegan for almost a year loved it!!!! But I fell off the wagon and couldn't stick with it!?!? Wasn't sure why, no amount of fruit satisfied me, and I would keep failing, and on fatty foods, like hummus... Sooo I tried the Dr.McDougall wayyyy.. I am still very high raw, all day actually except, for my huge starchy cooked evening meal(s). Guess what, I totally lost weight!!! Not that I am promoting cooked, but i feel sooo good, content, energetic, more even~keeled, and totally satisfied and I eat to my hearts content. And no more 'water retentive' feeling!!! The funny thing is I never feel starving anymore!!! I know these carbs are finally feeding my body and nourishing me :) I hope to make it back to all raw, but I am content now with this was~o~eating. And this lovely website still welcomes me, 'cooked faults and all'... so far :))) I even lost weight!! I am under 120 which I have never been in my whole adult life... So I get all fruity and veggied up during the day, and then enjoy my starch~ys and more fruits and veggies at night! :) It is heaven on earth for me :) And this leaning out I'm seeing is something I never experienced before... Hope that this helps but doesn't detour you from being and 100% fruity! ;)
This is really inspiring to me because I am still in love with cooked rice and corn! I am so happy to hear this has worked for someone!
I'm doing what you describe as my "transition" -- but am so happy, that I may stick with it. I haven't lost weight (only been eating this way 2 months) but I haven't gained any either. Not gaining while eating 2000 -4000K on most days, AND feeling like a million bucks, is good news for me. I think I might like to alternate 1 raw day for one "fruit all day and starchy vegan dinner" day. I could probably do that easily enough.
Yeah yo, all the asians are doing it (except the ones near McDonalds.)
They do eat less calories than us fruit-munchers, though. Look up the longevity studies on the Okinawans, the Hunzas, and the Vilcabambans. They give caloronutrient ratios and average caloric intake, as well as average longevity and incidence of obesity.
