So i found this link posted on twitter, and it was very informative. I read the bible almost every day and am very familiar with the story of Genesis. i never really put it into perspective like this. I did often have thoughts about how when Adam and Eve were in the garden, they only ate plants and they were obviously not cooked. This guy goes to the extent and explains everything. Now, I am not saying he is correct, because there are other passages that proves him wrong, but he does make sense.

I know that ever since i started raw i have had the energy of a five year old and feel great. thinking about meat or eggs or anything makes my stomach literally upset, and not just because of what happens in the process. All i do is crave fruits and vegetables, which i have never done in my entire life. I have also lost weight for the first time. Now, i never have weighed myself and have never cared at all, but i wanted to make sure this diet was going to make me drop below my set point* body weight by being mal nourished. In the first few weeks i dropped 10 lbs, but am still incredibly healthy. What this means, is that my body was not at the weight it wanted to be so my metabolism boosted when i was eating what my body needed.

*(set point body weight is the weight your body desires to be at, and will increase or decrease your metabolism to stay at this weight. this is precisely why extreme dieting is bad)

so enough blabber, heres a link to the video!

  1. Raw fruits and vegetables are certainly chock-full of health. :)

    My mom read, too, that frozen fruits and vegetables have even more vitamins and nutrition, because these said vitamins and nutrition have been sealed inside the food during the freezing process.

    So, i just read on Natural News that frozen foods can not be considered raw. When the food is expanded the cell expand by 9%, bursting, killing the enzymes. i have not looked into this further, but i will because i use a lot of frozen berries in my smoothies!

  3. Very good article! We are linking to this great article on
    our site. Keep up the good writing.
