To make a long story short I recently watched a documentary about an experiment done in the U.K. In this experiment the test group of people were fed
a raw vegan diet for six weeks. (I've tried but I couldn't locate the experiment online.) In that time all of the test subjects reported feeling
better, Weight loss, Increased energy levels and generally feeling better.
Some of the test subjects HALVED their cholesterol levels in SIX WEEKS.
For some reason I though it would be a good idea to try this experiment for myself. However I have been having trouble locating a dietician that will
even draw up a balanced raw vegan diet for me. I have finally located raw vegan diet on the net and I'm currently trying to find out if it is even
economically viable to eat a diet of raw grains, fruits, nuts and vegetables.
While the potential pitfalls of embarking on such a diet are fairly obvious I believe that there are lessons to be learn't from experiments like
this. There have been no long term raw vegan diet studies done (that I am aware of.) to show if there really is any benefit to pursuing such a
I'm a fat lazy bastard so I know I will benefit from eating healthier and I understand that being fanatical isn't the answer either...
So I guess I'm just looking for any useful advice people may have to offer and some feedback.
Besides... I've been trying to think up a topic for the first thread I've authored and this seemed like a good idea.
