I've been mostly raw for past year but have just finished reading 80-10-10 and
now going in that direction. Before I was eating lot of avocados, coconut oil, raw
olive oil and raw nuts and seeds. I had no problems eating this way...but maybe
a year wasn't enough to cause problems. However, this seems more
intuitive...although still struggling with eating enough as I feel I'm eating all day
long just to curb hunger and get enough calories and satiety. I worry about
calcium since I got a certain amount from almonds and sesame seeds etc.
But moving on....I am really confused about eating things like beets and carrots.
The book touches on it but never really address it. I used to juice beets and
carrots together several times a week. I'd save the pulp and put in a salad later.
Do I understand that I shouldn't eat either of them anymore? Beets and carrots
seem so healthy...especially the beets. I will give them up but I need to really
know why. I realize beets pretty much have to be cooked to be eaten and
Graham doesn't advocate juicing....b/c of sugar spikes but is it really that bad or
just not great and is it a real "no no" or just not ideal. I wish someone could give
me a definitive answer other than saying root veg. are not recommended. If
someone has been eating them and imagining they are flooding their body with
their divine colors and goodness, they need a solid reason to stop...which I will
do with the right information...thanks!
