I'm disappointed corn scored so low... when I asked the other day about eating raw corn, a few here gave the thumbs up. It's in season now, cheap, and delicious, and I've been eating several ears a day, usually mixed with my salad.

Another disappointing point is that basil was listed as not being a human food. I use basil for low fat raw vegan salad dressings all the time. My main recipe is celery, berries and basil, blended. It tastes awesome, and I can happily eat huge huge portions of greens with a dressing like that. Oh, well...

I've also never heard that green peppers are undesirable. Thats the only color I eat because they're the cheapest, and I generally include at least one in my salad a day.
You're not wrong. Look no further than the anti grain paleo community for sources.

That said, the last three nights I've eaten fresh sweet corn. Been craving it, and figured there were a whole lot worse things I could have opted to eat.
Well wheat is the biggest offender, because it's in everything & gluten containing. Basically what you're saying is correct. Grains inflame the bowls causing a leaky gut. Most realfood doctors will argue that this leads to autoimmune disorders.

I haven't read it, but I'm sure Doug's "Grain Damage" book goes into this.

I've read somewhere (maybe Weston Price) indigenous peoples that had diets high in corn (ie hispanic) would ferment before consumption ridding most the problems with the food nutritionally. They also cooked in lard. Only when the diets were westernized with fast processing and vegetable oils, did the societies start seeing the declines in health/disease.
Check out your source if you live in the U.S half the sweet corn production could be GMO now.
I listed most of the GMO foods in this blog

I don't really do it much because I don't like the cleanup, but what about juicing? Wouldn't juicing take things like tubers from No to Go?
This is just what I needed right now, so thank you very much for posting this up! Bookmarked.
Keep in mind this is just Nora Lenz's opinion on the subject. I don't have many huge disagreements with what she says (I don't see any problem with basil or baby spinach) but I say as long as you're eating enough fruit you can eat all the vegetables that you want. personally I love raw carrots, sweet corn, I even eat raw kale from time to time. these and other veggies don't digest as well as fruits but I think on the whole they are beneficial if you choose to include them in your diet, I consider them treats not transitional foods. I certainly enjoy nuts from time to time also.
I have to say I agree with all of the list I hate most things like broccoli that I know a lot of people eat raw, blurg! and always hated rocket and bitter greens - the only two things I do quite like that may not be optimal are spinach(love baby spinach!) and carrots!
Not sure if I believe all of that considering how high kale and some of the other vegetables are in vitamin and mineral content.  And not to mention all of the healing properties of basil and oregano and other herbs.

The whole point of this diet is maximum energy and minimum residue. That is the goal of any diet transition from cooked SAD to raw natural hygiene focusing on fruit. The best way to distinguish what foods are optimal and which are not is to simplify your diet, which happens by the very nature of moving in the right direction.

 

But the next and even "better" best way is to get in tune with your body through progressive exercise, namely weight training, although endurance training can also help you fetter out which foods are best. So what do you actually do? You combine FOOD with EXERCISE and QUANTIFY it. That is what I have been doing for 35 years now. Going vegan in 85, raw in 99 and then totally 955 about two years ago was an amazing education beyond what a PhD could teach. The experience was solid to say the least. 

 

That is what my food and fitness facility "The Best Weigh" has been doing for people locally here in Long Island for 25 years now: Showing them that the absolute best way to optimum (or even basic, which means free from civilized disease etc.) health and fitness is literally through the MARRIAGE of food and exercise to show the irrefutable effects. Anyone who tries this important life experiment will always move in the right direction and end up low fat raw vegan. There is not other common sense way, when you observe and feel your own body getting so much more endurance than anyone else half your age who eats any other diet, and also you notice that lfrv is a natural steroid if there ever was one in terms of building muscle mass up to your genetic potential if you want to work hard at it. (The main reason I have been working out also with weights has evolved into simply proving by my very presence that this is a great diet. Even the most learned doctors and scientists are more impressed with your body and skin and athletic ability than truck loads of data. Trust me I tried both. Getting the truck loads of data was the EASY part!  (whew)  (sigh)

 

When you have your "kitchen" (for me it is six foot steel racks to house my fruit stash!) and you have your "gym" (can be your set of 100 steps, your track, and/or your dead lift bar etc., and you test the effects of different fuels for maximum energy and least residue (as natural as possible of course which leads all common sense people to fresh raw whole foods), then and only then will you have the best way to judge which foods work best and which do not. Personally I give it years not months to reach any ultimate conclusions, but there can be immediate reactions too. In fact as you get more in tune with your body, you become a wonderful walking positive experiment!

 

Psp LOL Did you ever notice that spell check sees "lfrv as "larva" - I just thought that was funny....

This is one of the best statements I have heard in relationship to diet and exercise Chris, thank you so much!

In fact, exactly how I got into lfrv, a path where I kept going in the right direction to improve athletic performance and get high levels of energy. Once you start JUMPING and hopping out of bed as a quick reaction to the alarm clock, energized every early 5:30 am morning after 8 hours of sleep, that's when you know you are doing things right. Eating the right foods only served one purpose to me, as I was CRAVING energy, laughter, and a clean system. After that, exercise becomes addictive and fun! Thanks again chris for the lovely post!

Bless you,

Eli
