My opinion on human nutrition and health is the same regardless
of the approach you may want to take to get there.

The goal is to achieve optimal nutrition while maintaining a healthy
weight, through a diet based on a variety of unrefined,
unprocessed, intact, whole plant foods, regardless of whether one
wants to do it on a raw food, a vegan, a vegetarian, or a more
traditional diet. The goal is to ensure optimal intake of all known
nutrients (vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids, essential fats,
fiber, etc) based on our best knowledge through a variety of real
food, while at the same time limiting any item we know to be a
health hazard (ie, salt, saturated fat, hydrogenated fat, trans fat,
refined sugars, flours,cholesterol, etc).


So where do you see the potential problems in attaining the
nutrients needed to thrive on a (low fat) raw vegan diet?


There are many ways to do this though they will share many
common denominators. If one wants to do it through a mostly or
predominately raw diet, more power to them. But raw doesn't take
precedent over the above, nor is it necessary.


A very sound response, Jeff


My experience over the decades is that I have seen too many
people put dietary philosophy (raw or otherwise) over optimal
health, even to the point where it has harmed them. That is
unfortunate.


What kind of harm (specifically a low fat raw vegan diet)?

Thank you Jeff,

Tim
