I won't speak to the raw questions because I have no expertise in nutrition/digestion and no interest in being 100% raw (although I make raw foods and go to raw restaurants, etc.). I do, however, have great interest in whole foods, plenty raw, and have never had digestion problems.

About the Vita-Mix, though, I had one for 25 years (now still this %#*%! BlendTec I haven't replaced yet with another VM ... do NOT give BlendTec a cent of your money, btw .. inferior product for which they don't honor warranty and uncaring customer service, the complete opposite of VM). I just found something new to me on the VM website and it's GREAT! It's 52 videos on making nut butters, ice cream, soup, juice, etc. I'm SO pleased that they're doing such good marketing and serving owners of their machines. I STILL find the videos inspiring and I've done it all for decades now. I hope this helps with the learning curve.

P.S. The hunger after that soup dinner may have been because you didn't eat enough calories (in which case, just eat more, like the grilled sandwich - or can help you determine your caloric needs) ... or sometimes cravings are "just" mental/emotional (in which case it's a matter of exploring what you're really hungry for). Good luck getting comfortable and enjoy your VM. It should last you until you're muuuch older!
