Great! Fruit all day and a carbed dinner at night is what I've been doing! I usually felt kind of bad when I did this because some days I just wasn't satisfied with a big salad and fruit for dinner. So thank you for posting this, looks like I'm doing exactly what my body needs :).

Of course I still eat a huge salad and fruit at night for dinner, so sometimes my body doesn't need the cooked veggies, but sometimes it does. I think listening to your body is most important.

If I had been the one who said that "sometimes eating cooked food is better than raw food" then I would have been attacked by some people here for not faithfully following the "high carb RAW vegan lifestyle". If I continued to promote cooked food, then I might have even been excluded from the group.

Hi Freelee,

I feel supported by your commitment-30 vids in 30 days!

This is just what I needed to hear. I have been drinking a gallon of distilled water each day, and mono fruits, etc. One thing missing-the physical training! I must get out, and sweat.

Thanks again! HW

Thank you Freelee!  I needed to hear this because I flip-flop all the time.  My journey to the raw foods has been filled with success and failure.  It's my self-defeating all-or-none attitude that gets me into trouble, I will get on the fruit wagon for a few months and then regress into my old lifestyle of eating the dreaded SAD. I also struggle with a nicotine addiction.  For me though, giving up nicotine becomes easy when eating foods with high water, high nutrient density, such as watermelon.  In fact, the thought of smoking repulses me when I eat clean.  It's only when I'm eating fatty cooked foods that I also start to crave nicotine.  IMO, whether it's a food addiction or drug addiction, it can be beat by staying carbed, hydrated, and well rested.   But the reason for my regression is partly due to not surrounding myself with supportive people.  Also, it can be a challenge to stay raw when my work days are so long (sometimes 12-14 hour shifts).  But I'm excited about the possibility of working in some high-carb cooked foods to make it through my day. This is awesome!  Thanks again Freelee!

This is very good.  Would love to see more of this on 30bad.  DR did a recent vid about his eating grains and starches for a while and then after a time he went more into the fruit.  Would like this to be remembered for new folks that have given up dairy, meat and lots of other unhealthy stuff.  If they've given up all those things to embrace a new diet it is hard to see being a stickler about eating these healthy cooked foods.

I don't think that raw sweet potato is a good idea over time it will destroy your digestion.  As part of my diet journey (before going vegan and before finding this fruit based raw diet) I went through a phase of eating raw sweet potato and raw squashes.  At first I liked it and thought it was great but then omg it started wreaked havoc on my digestion.  I started getting had several issues after eating them but mainly I started feeling tired and sluggish after eating it.  Not everyone may experience problems but this is my experience so I can't recommend eating raw sweet potato or squashes.

What do people think about raw sweet potatoes? I have begun to eat them in replacement of cooked starches and find them very effective.
