Ideal 17 Day Diet

“If you’re not 100% raw, you’re basically in the cooked food mindset.” It didn’t attract me at all. It didn’t repulse me. I have some friends who are 100% raw and they’re repulsed by cooked foods.

Why should you be more worried about eating your natural diet versus what you were eating before, which is highly toxic? Again, much of this depends on how much personal research you’ve done into these issues. It’s one thing for me to say, “It’s poisonous.” There are many facts to prove that. Most people can prove it by going 100% raw for six months, or even a month or two, and then going back to eating cooked food. You probably will feel quite sick after that first meal.

Your chances are much better if you are either in telephone a cooked food addict, but the problem was that I was a cooke that’s one of the big things. That means going on the ideal, perfect diet for 30 days. There are too many changes at once. It’s unsustainable, although mostly for the mind. It is sustainable in the long term.

Eventually he got to the point where he liked it. When I was first 100% raw, I was really looking forward to going to raw food restaurants in New York City. To have something that was almost as good as cooked food but wasn’t as bad was really helpful at first. Sometimes that stuff is pretty heavy though, Some people can go from a regular diet to eating mono-meals with no spices and stay 100% raw. I know someone who went 100% raw right away with no problems. She kept it up for a while, but now she’s not 100% raw. Her health has gone down in a lot of ways. She has some very serious health problems, but she’s still not going 100% raw. She knows she should. It was so easy for her before, but now it’s not.
