100% is the easy way to go and according to Dr. D brings the most success. Most people have no negative symptoms, just good energy, you might need a little extra rest at first. The stuff most people attribute to detox is just under eating or bad food combining or some other way of not following 811 to the T. Reading the book first is really helpful. Lowering your fat intake while still on cooked is a good idea, it is good anyway but it will also make the switch to 811 raw go much smoother. It'll be great, you'll love it!!! :)
I was vegan a year before going 80-10-10 and I would say it's easier to just switch over 100% I didn't experience any detox or transition issues. I believe that poeple comming from SAD type diets are the ones who experience the most difficult transitions because eating this way is so different from what they are used to. The most important step for you at this point is to up the fruit. Fruit should be roughly 95-98% of your diet. Greens being the other 2-5%. This has been my experience. Good Luck
lol, very well put Jack.
I recommend that you go 100% and never look back. What will happen is that as your body starts to get more clean, you will learn that CHEAT DAYS = SICK DAYS.
When you mix two or more ways of life together, you are only doing a mix.
In some people, it is very dangerous to mix a high fat diet and fruit diet together. High fat in the blood stream promotes high blood sugar which in turn can cause diabetic problems and candida problems.
Good luck and Peace, PK
yea I've heard high fat and high fruit it terrible! I haven't got the 811 book yet (I can't wait till it gets here in the mail!) but I get the impression we're supposed to start out with only bananas. What are your thoughts on if I did a "trial weekend" of bananas this weekend and see how I feel? Will it be too soon for me to tell?
