30 Bananas a Day!

I checked on CRONOMETER, cooked lentils are rich in omega 3, do not have a lot of omega 6 and do not contain a lot of amino acids with sulphur, meaning that they alkalize the body.

So, they are healthy... no? Scare me off lentils. ;)

are they healthy?..compared to what?

there not optimal for this diet as they are cooked,  they have high protein level but there are easier sources that  are raw to digest such as leafy greens and fruit

would you rather sit down to a bowl of flavorless lentils or a bowl of fresh, ripe fruit? you're under carbed if youre looking for excuses to eat lentils

yup that is right 


Well, for one, they are cooked. Why bother? Just eat leafy greens if you want more EFAs. 

I can really recommend reading the 80/10/10 book in this regards, there is actually stuff in several chapters building up to a NO on this question. The short explanation will be yes they maybe rich in omega 3, but they contain way to much protein, and other lentils stuff we don't want. Go pick yourself some fresh leafy greens and you will be far better of eating them. We where asking here what would have been the more healthiest right :D

plus omega 3's are very heat sensitive. cooking it will only render it oxidized and carcinogenic.

i still can't understand why doctors recommend eating cooked fish for the omega 3's

This is a very good point and the denaturing of nutrients is a major basis for eating raw i believe.

Doctors up until recently were not properly educated in nutrition. They are trained in the drug and surgery application for sick people. Not how to prevent illness. 30bad members in most cases know more about this than doctors.

Having said that there are some doctors who get this but are hard to find!

Do you have any evidence backing this up? My googling has proved fruitless.

Your short explanation contained absolutely zero useful information.

"Too much protein?" What does that even mean?

"Other stuff we don't want." Uh, like what??

"Go pick yourself some fresh leafy greens and you will be far better off eating them." The question here is WHY buddy. WHY?

Does anyone at all have a *real* answer?

Re-read my posts, I never said cooked lentils are better than raw foods. What specifically in my post is not within the guidelines? I'm trying to get you guys to prove things with real research, not just vague statements like "because it's optimal." Hell, I'm eating an HCRV diet You will only convince other people to try out this diet by providing a reasonable, sound argument as to why it's actually healthier to eat raw foods. Threads like this make raw foodists look silly like they don't know what they're talking about. That may not be the case, but that's what it will look like to outsiders. And that does NOT help spread the good word, it does the opposite.
