The 100% raw foodists - and the 5 minute raw foodists have the same attitude to anyone who tries to offer a balanced viewpoint as was the situation with Dougs fasting - attack attack attack and vitriol. The perfect example was Harley in his raw days, and that has all been wiped from his memory - the ultimate hypocrite.

In which other area of life would a failure rate of 99% be allowed to go unquestioned and unchallenged. The fact that a handful of people like Doug, Harley and John Rose have fantastic genetics and a cast iron stomach and can stuff 15 bananas into their stomach and have it retract and then go for a 200 mile bike ride and boast about it doesn't help anyone else.

The advice to keep eating more fruit and to stretch your stomach beyond its natural capacity and the damage it causes is equivalent to the dental damage of unlimited eating of fruit. Then the binge eating which follows. Once these people give up on the 100% raw ideal where are the 100% raw fooders then? Off finding more new young suckers who believe everything they say.

One poster said they followed his advice and now have stretched their stomach too much and can't get satisfied. He just ignored the poster and their problem.

There are a handful of successful raw fooders, but why shouldn't people be allowed to show the whole story without getting attacked. And this ideal of a 100% raw or fruit diet - even Ehret only did it for 2 years. We aren't like animals any more.

About a year or more ago someone posted about trying the 80/10/ 10 and it didn't work for him so he went back to cooked food but still believed in the ideal of the raw diet, so he came back to ask Doug for advice. Dougs answer was basically ' if you can tell me why all the animals eat raw and we should be any different then I will address your issues '. I addressed the issues and all I got was a smart aleck reply ' so should we just eat cooked food ?'. He didn't address any of my points because he had no answer.

There is nothing wrong with a 100% raw food diet if it's
1. used as a short to medium cleansing diet.
2. done correctly.
3. and most importantly if it works for your body.
4. If it doesn't, people can still eat raw and medium to high raw and still be healthy, but you get attacked for saying it.

Over to you folks. Let the vitriol and attacks begin.
