My day started out well.

I’d gotten to bed about 11 or a little after. Had to get up an hour later and take a Melatonin and slept fitfully for awhile then went into a deep sleep. Woke before 5:30 and got up and I’ve been going ever since. It was an eventful day and I’d almost have to say I’m tired but I could still stay up and blog. However, it’s past 10:30 and I’m going to put it off until tomorrow and get some rest. Good night!

    Thanks for the comment.

    I have had the same experiences with some of my nurses. I had to go to the hospital recently because I my doctor thought I might have apendicitis(sp), it turns out I had just accedently eatin’ cooked food.

    Anyway….one of my nurses told me that being on this diet was dangerous….she said that she knew alot of people who got severly malnurished. She told me I needed to start taking B12 supplements.

    I have a question…..How can you become malnurished on a diet where you eat nothing but fruits and veggies?!

    There are people who try to concentrate on veggies and limit fruit. They can’t get enough calories that way so they’ll throw in lots of avocados, nuts, and seeds. Those are good in small quantities but a large percentage can wreak havoc with the system. The best raw food diet is 80/10/10 Raw Vegan which is the focus of my forum. I’m still learning to eat that way, myself, so we’re all in this together. We could survive and even thrive on nothing but bananas and greens. I don’t know of anyone who would want to try it for an extended period of time. For myself, I like more variety than that but it would be doable. People look at the failures more than the successes and point fingers. They don’t consider there are many more failures (often ending in death) on cooked food. Stick with the program, Alisha! You’ll be glad you did. Swimming against the current can make us stronger.

    As for B-12 supplementation—Roger advocates it. I don’t take B-12. I can’t remember the last time I did. Dr. D. says that if symptoms present, there’s plenty of time to supplement. Then, you would need to use a good vegan methylcobalamin, IMHO. It comes in lozenge form.
