Raw vegan dating
Even doctors who prescribe and live by a vegan diet caution their patients against attempting a raw diet. You would greatly reduce the types of foods you can eat.
And you would do so in vain, because most of the raw vegan principles are based on misconceptions about human nutrition, and work counter to good health.
An increasing number of celebrities — most recently, tennis sensation Venus Williams — swear by this diet as the best way to prevent and reverse diseases and to stay young and vital.
Testimonials from ordinary folks are endless, boasting advantages along the lines of having more energy, better skin, improved relationships with woodland creatures and so on.
A vegan diet not only excludes meat and seafood, but other animal products as well (such as dairy, eggs, and honey).
Everyone is welcome and there is no cost to be part of the group.
Some paths, such as vegetarianism or the Mediterranean diet, have considerable science supporting them.
Dead or cooked foods are said to be depleted of their life energy, as well as most of their nutrients.
Juicing and blending "green smoothies" often are key elements of this diet.
But "plants are so excess in nutrients that even this breakdown is insignificant in practical terms," said John Mc Dougall, creator of the Mc Dougall Program, a vegan-friendly, starch-based diet.
And by eating both raw and cooked foods, "you get the best of both worlds," said Jennifer Nelson, director of clinical dietetics at the Mayo Clinic and associate professor of nutrition at the Mayo Medical School in Rochester, Minn. Boiling the life out of greens will indeed reduce the nutrient load.
