Black beans can be sprouted very well, but I always have gotten sick eating them raw. I think the anti-nutrient is called agluttinin, which is destroyed by cooking.

I write:

Yes, it is an ingestable protein and clasified as lectins and various other fancy names. It is in raw sprouted beans and grains and is very harmful. It can enlarge the pancreas, upset intestinal bacteria, lodge in the intestines and chelate with nutrients and rob the body of nutrition and many various harmful things. Lectins are the nasty boy of the raw food world and cooking will not completely destroy them either.

So what do we do to tame the nasty lectins? Well...this is hardly known by anyone, but if you search deeply in the literature there is a solution. We can tame the lectin by using sulfated polysaccharide sugars from things like brown seaweeds and fenugreek sprouts etc. The various sulfated polysaccharides will chelate with the lectins and take them out of the body. We can also have sprouted beans and grains fermented to solve the problem. I often have fermented sprouted grains with non fermented legume sprouts. Never any problems and great digestion. Other people may wish to ferment the bean sprouts and cook.

Dr Clement says NO cooked until one has fully healed, this can often take 2 years all raw on the Hippocrates diet, sometimes longer. He has also said that 7 years is a great time to stay raw for. He says healthy people can eat as much as 25 cooked food, but eating anymore compromises the immune system because white blood cell counts raise too high and immune system functioning is decreased. He also says to steam foods or have soups to bake things, but never boil foods. He also says dehydrated foods are not the best and are only transition foods when trying to do proper raw for full healing.

Brian also says no fruit for people who are healing, and no more than 15% fruit for healthy people (very rare for people to be healthy). He also says that very few people have a healthy pancreas and most people should not be eating much fruit because the sugar can be harmful to the pancreas.

My fruit stance is different to Brian's. To me it is not fresh and rarely ripe,+ it is low nutrient and not high energy giving due to being shop bought etc. To me fruit is on the bottom rung of the raw wholefoods list.
