boutenko family aka the 'raw family'. ive met em all and lovely folk they are. and if you ask them personally if they eat cooked food they always say 'yes'. exception being victoria and she claims its cos she eats too much and doesnt exercise enough.
but let me tell you folks, if your as obese as victoria is, you are chewing a heck of a lot of calories to just maintain that weight and its IMPOSSIBLE to stay that weight on just raw plant foods alone. youd literally vomit on the amount of nuts/seeds/oil needed to support that sort of caloric excess.
my sincere advice to victoria is the same i gave sergei and valya, 'if you want to be slim, trim, fit and 100% raw vegan like natures design, simply get enough cals from your fav sweet fruits for starters.."
we need to hold the raw authors to a higher standard. what does it say about our raw movement when the 'raw family' females are chronically overweight from eating cooked food?
victoria boutenko has sold more raw food books than anyone in history. people constantly tell me 'well the raw diet sounds great but how come that victoria lady is obese!!!!..she is fatter than most people you see at mcdonalds!! etc'
it pains me to hear this and see victoria on stage and promoting the benefits of a raw food diet but she is obese...
I think this could be very good because she will keep going eventually or sergei or someone will get it finally and then come out with his 8-1-1 body and so forth and the ripples will go forth and victoria will lose a bunch of weight and have an 8 pack or whatever and everybody will be like holy shit look at the beore and after pictures and the thousands of gorumet raws will become 8-1-1 and then all their friends will be liike oooooh okay now i get it so i just eat a bunch of RIPE SWEET fruit and greens for dinner and be positive with my emotional process and let all the old baggage get dropped
