I researched the science of enzymes and that gave me incentive to go raw but cooked foods still had that attraction at one point. Almost like I was an addict so is eat lots of cooked foods in a day and see how I felt. Well I felt like crap!!!! Tired heavy. Constipated. Lethargic. Then I'd eat all raw. Felt fantastic!!! Energy clean. Strong. Vibrant. So the key is personal experimentation.
I still to this day refine my diet and play with herbs for different effects. I want to assist this super machine we call the body.
