Panchito, I don't feel a need to increase my calories right now. I feel great! I haven't made any effort into actually counting calories while eating raw, but I do pay attention to how much fat I am consuming from nuts, avocados, etc. as it is very easy (at least for me) to over consume the fats.

My theory, which is just the product of my own analysis, is that it should take fewer calories on a raw diet to keep the body well fed than the calories it takes on a non-raw diet. My reason is this: most of the calories consumed with cooked food take a lot more energy from the body to process. The body doesn't have to work nearly as hard to process raw food. Thus, doesn't it make sense that

Panchito, thanks for the response. Have you been eating this way for awhile? I'll need to read about the supplements you are taking. That is exactly the diet I've been eating. It just seems to be what my body wants to eat. Funny thing is that all the years I was eating a SAD diet, I never would touch avocado. Now I look forward to it everyday in my salad!

When I first decided to switch to a raw diet, I found myself all caught up with all of the dehydrating and finding foods to "cook" that resembled foods I was used to eating on the SAD diet. With all of the nuts involved in making desserts, etc. I figured out that I was eating an extremely high fat diet and actually began to gain weight. I slowly stopped trying to eat raw for quite som

Its been quite awhile since I have posted to the forum. I have an inexpensive centrifugal juicer and finally ready to pay some bucks for a "better" juicer. There is so much info out there about juicers that it is overwhelming. I am single and juice once - twice a day. I juice greens with sometimes other veggies and toss in a lemon and apple (usually) for flavor. I don't juice other

I try to avoid dried fruit .. too much high concentration of sweet for me and makes me start craving more sweets. I'll usually next grab chocolate. Fresh fruits are just better for me to eat for that reason.

If I begin my day with a green juice drink, I am always more successful with my plan to eat raw that day. My green juice is about 20 ounces or so .. ALL greens except for one small lemon and one apple. I plan to reduce the apple to half an apple and then try to cut it out completely, but I'm not ready for that yet. This beverage really fills me up and I'm usually not hungry for about another 3

My tip would be to buy a juicer before a blender, but just my personal opinion. I juice a lot of greens daily. I eat my fruit in its natural form.

I am happier when I think about the healthy food I am feeding my body. By nature, I am a calm and happy person. I try not to judge others as I haven't walked in their shoes. The oddest thing has happened to me though .. I have developed this deep inner desire to take martial arts. My first class was yesterday. I think this will feed my calm nature about as much as the raw food is feeding my

Never eat fruit when there is the possibility that any other food is still in the stomach and wait 20-30 minutes (45 for bananas) before consuming anything else. I've been told apples are the one exception to this "rule". Are you eating food with small seeds (broccoli, berries??) .. sometimes that gives some people problems.

I have wondered the same thing. Right now my goal is to eat 100% raw until my evening meal. If I feel like I want something cooked in my evening meal I will do that. For me, I either have a 100% raw day or I don't. Have no idea how to successfully measure the ratio on a partial raw day.

Taking offense and reacting to another person in anger is a choice. Just as love is a choice. It is really that simply, although the world will try to make it seem very complicated.

I purchase all my organic produce from WF. There are no other choices in the winter months in my area. I like the store. I don't shop at Wallmart as I don't find myself in the endless pursuit of the lowest price.

Can you dehydrate slices of sweet potatos and put some sort of oil and salt on them and make them like chips? Gosh ... I hadn't thought about making veggie chips until now ...

Now that I'm switching to a raw diet, I am reading conflicting information about whether or not sweet potatos can be safely consumed raw. I thought they were really healthy to eat, but a little afraid to try them raw based on what I am eating. Why is there so much conflicting info out there about whether some foods can be safely consumed raw? Is there a particular list on the internet that man

I drink at least one green juice drink every day ... I just add 2-3 different kinds of greens 1 lemon 2 apple All organic. I juice them. Look forward to them every morning and sometimes in the afternoon. Something about getting those green nutrients first thing has a major psychological impact on me, besides also making me feel full. Also like my big bowl of fruit every day.

I'm converting to raw and during that process trying to figure out which eating habits I should change. I'm a grazer. Its terrible to be a grazer on a SAD kind of diet! But .. I like the idea of making a really large bowl of cut up fruit and having it at my desk for grazing. It will keep me from grabbing something that isn't good for me to eat. On the other hand, I suppose part of eating a r

To bee or not to bee. I presume you are aware of the impact on the earth and its inhabitants due to the use of a computer or other devices to post on message boards on the internet. Is that to be considered a justified impact on animals?

Personally, I don't think it is a natural way for the body to secrete waste. I know they are recommended by many, but it seems very contrary (in my opinion) to how we should care for our body.

I've been told that when switching to a raw diet, one mistake many people make is eating too much fat. I am also trying to avoid eating raw immitations of cooked food, as I think that defeats my purpose in going raw. I am going raw because I want to give good nutrition to my body and to begin thinking of food in a different way. So my question is how much should I eat? I am drinking 1-2 fresh
