    Raw Vegan Diet

    Morning!

    Does anyone here follow this lifestyle?

    I'm thinking about it. Have watched a few videos and docs as you do. Looking at what people eat, and it's such a large amount of food, I don't know if I could chew that much!

    Real life pros and cons?

    How expensive are you finding it?

    Do you enjoy it?

    I'm asking all these questions more as a convo starter. I would like to know what you think about the whole thing.

    Thank you x

    Have since decided this is not for me. Involves eating far too much food each day!

    I live as close to raw vegan as I can . But in winter I do have hot food too. And a little in summer . I feel at optimum health when I'm about 80% raw

    I was 100% raw for 6 months, but have been one and off a lot longer than that. There are many different styles of raw food and not all of them do you have to eat a lot. I found what worked best for me was high fat ( shite load of avo's, nuts, seeds, cold pressed oils and also a lot of dried fruit). I had loads of energy, lost weight, skin glowing and it didn't mess with my diabetes. I then switched to 80/10/10 and even though I love eating tonnes of fruit, I was craving cooked food, my blood sugars went messed up and as you said, I found it hard to eat enough, especially as the fruits and veg are high in water content.
    Have a play around though, don't give up on it, it is an amazing lifestyle, you just need to find a way that works for you.
