>>>>4). How many days, weeks, months were you
interested in health foods / raw foods before you
found your perfect diet which you are now advocating
for everyone?

I would suggest that you don't make statements that
are not true. decades ago i started to gather
information about diet. I found very quickly a diet
that made sense, although there was some transition
and minor changes over time. I am not advocating
"my perfect diet for everyone". there's a lot of
variation within a range of proper diet. I suggest
that for many reasons, cooked is negative for the
body and that all raw can be done and is done
healthfully by many, either all raw or close to it.
I also submit that it is a matter of caloric intake
requirements that fruit needs to predominate unless
you get into juicing or nuts/seeds - if you focus on
whole food then fruit must predominate. simple
math. I also suggest that even though there are
many problems with humans in relation to diet ( we
are not good climbers, maybe never ate all raw fruit
based, commercial fruit issues, etc) it STILL is the
best /healthy way to eat. cooked/animal products
always cause problems for me, and for others as
well. we are not well adapted to them. that doesn't
mean you can't be healthy enough with them, just not

I didn't give everest example for that purpose. I
gave the example to suggest that it is not easy and
just because it is not easy does not mean that it is
not valid/worthwhile.

>>Some people survive and thrive on any diet - and
the high raw fruit diet is just like that. Just
because some people are able to survive on a high
fruit diet doesn't mean everyone can.

absolutely not true in my view. who are these
people who thrive "on any diet"? survive, yes, but
thrive to their highest good, no. you can appear to
thrive as an olympic champion, yet have internal
issues such as elimination problems etc that are not
seen, and there are ALways problems with cooked
food. I would say that the vast majority of the
reasons that some don't thrive on high fruit is due
to the reasons I suggested - doing it wrong, not
enough time,etc. I know people don't like to hear
that, but I've seen it too many times when told by
people how they did it. oh, I had b12 problems, but
the diet is a failure!, well yeah, that's one of the
issues that needs to be addressed. it doesn't
invalidate the diet.

even yourself, you eat kale, but why? because it
has a lot of nutrients? the assimilation is likely
very low as compared to more succulent greens, so
youre actually getting less nutrient bang for the
buck, in addition to the antinutrients that cause
problems. when i see people eating kale as a staple
or apples i wonder about all the other mistakes
that are made that impact success, then the diet is
blamed - "it doesn't work for everyone"! of course,
if you deny the instincts and use your brain and
focus on nutrients without understanding
assimilation/taste/hunger, you will fail.
