Omega 3 ??

Hey guys!Since I've started living the Vegan/Raw Till 4 lifestyle my mum kept telling how important it is to eat fish and that I can't just not have the Omega 3. But is it really that important? Continue

I'm very excited that I bought my first pile of fruit and vegetables at wholesale! $160 worth- almost double that at full retail price. I'll have to resort to a little freezing and dehydrating to deal with the bulk but I'll mostly be eating it fresh as it ripens. I got 38 pounds of bananas, 18 of grapes, 12 points of figs, a case of mangoes, six romaine, six celery, and 4 lb of baby spinach. Holy moly, happy eating!!!

I should say as a quick followup that I've poked around, especially in this group's old posts, and found some interesting stuff... just looking for anything particularly great or comprehensive that you guys know of.

Thanks again!!

Hi everyone, I'm new to the site.  I've been very strict vegan for 12 years and eat a ton of raw food but definitely have cravings for cooked food; I'm just wondering if there's any literature around that specifically that I can learn from.  Can anyone point me towards discussions around (1) criticism of the diet and replies to those criticisms, (2) discussions of "one-size-fits-all" advocacy of LFRV vs. adhering to the diet in moderation, and especially (3) recommended ways to transition and challenges to anticipate?   Thanks!

I don't think you should need to stuff yourself to "get enough calories." I think you may be trying to make yourself eat more calories than you really need. How many are you shooting for? Are you active? How tall are you?

That makes sense Don, great info once again ThankYou. I will seek out the 'yummy' greens as best i can.  I have a question if that is ok, regarding a statement from your 'melon belly' article - "you stuffed yourself with fruit in an effort to get enough calories when you have a sluggish digestive system" - I feel like i really do this, stuff myself because i need the calories but my digestion is terrible. Anything i eat makes me bloat. I wake up in the morning with a flat-ish stomach and by the time im going to bed, even if i've digested my last meal of the day, im about 3 inch wider than when i wake up! and most of the time i feel a little uncomfortable, like i really stuggle to digest food. I am thinking of trying the chromium and possibly B12 supplementation. I know you cant really diagnose anything, but what should one do if they are stuffing to get calories with really sluggish digestion?
Thank you so much if you are able to reply :)

Thank you for the replies everyone! And thanks Don, i've already recieved my warning about high fat when I had my gallbladder removed a couple of years ago...so low fat it is. time for regeneration. So glad for all your advice. I also know I need to rest and sleep more and stress less. I know I can overcome this! I'm going to try eating maybe 2 heads of celery a day too to remineralize.

What is everyone's take on 'black pepper' or 'cinnamon'?

Comment by John Jasper on September 5, 2011 at 11:02pm



For that you want to get professional Natural Hygienist advice.  I'm fairly sure that the program generally involves a short fast to "clear the decks" so to speak and then get in there with the natural, wholesome, species-appropriate foods.
