This is actually quite naive. Perhaps you should spend more time in the grocery store. You can get a hamburger meal, for say $5.00. A bundle of fresh asparagus is 5.00, or more, and that is only one portion of a meal.
A fresh bundle of broccoli is always more expensive than frozen. Please don't take my word for it. Go do your own price comparisons.
I bought three pears earlier this week and they were over $4.00 for the three. You can get a whole can of pears for $2.99.
...And you find it compelling to point this out......because, why?
Even the frozen foods are loaded with sodium, dyes and preservatives. They are, of course, better than nothing.

And once again, you're going to have to do a bit more research using your own body to know the truth here. Drinking too much washes out water-soluble vitamins, but it also introduces heavy metals into the body quite unnecessarily - because very few places on Earth have really clean water. If you need to retain water in your circulatory system, which is closed I might add, then bump up your salt intake too. Not iodized salt though, use uncleaned sea salt.

Best of luck to you, OP.
Really, though. If I wanted to add more fruit into my diet I'd just become a homosexual.

I like this site because everyone here is so busy being argumentitively minded that they can't even see simple jokes and end up semantically ripping it apart like an Asperger's sufferer.
Hey, look, I'll kill the joke: a homosexual person is often called a 'fruit'.
I didn't try to be derogatory to vegans.
...Why'd you bring up vegan bodybuilders for, anyway? I mean, if they do it for you, stud, more power to you.

To clarify, I usually equate homosexuals as feminine and weak in body structure. I haven't personally met any big muscled gay's in my area.

Err. Raw food? As in uncooked? Aren't you worried about parasites? Those critters live on just about anything that is not COOKED! Cook the salmon for crying out loud! You never know!
Love fruits and vegetable. But be sure to wash away the dirt, grime and slimy stuff from leafy vegetables very well. Good luck with your health.

you obviously didn't read the original post - it's SMOKED salmon - OP is going to have about 75% raw food.
It's a good plan, but make sure that you're eating enough. You'll be amazed at thow much fruit and veg you need to eat to even maintain a recommended dieter's dailiy calorie consumption of around 1300 calories. I do something similar - I'm down 40 lbs in 4 months and blood pressure and blood glucose has dropped significantly.
You do know gay guys are leaner than straight guys on average I hope. I'd call being fat weak in body structure since, well, you don't see many fat athletes do you.
