On his plan you basically aim for a pound of raw fruit, a pound of raw veggies and a pound of cooked veggies a day. This is along with at least a cup of beans and various nuts and seeds. I started the diet because his research made sense, but it scared me-I didn't want to get sicker than I was-KWIM? It was unbelievable though! I recovered 90 percent within the first month. That was enough for me! I'm actually a hundred percent better now and I owe it all to finding raw! Needless to say it keeps me pretty committed I am working to get closer to all raw, but as it stands now the only "cooking" I really do is at dinnertime. I'm thinking of phasing that out, but it's difficult because I'm craving stick to your bones food. I'm pregnant, nursing, and it is winter in New England. Any tips on how to get over the psychological aspects of heavy food? Or Good raw choices to satisfy those needs?
