Anybody tried this? From what I understand, it can be done for weight loss but is intended to be a permanent lifestyle change. "Raw Foodists" are a group of pseudo-vegetarians who eat only raw, living food as at least 75% of their diet. Eating "raw, living food" does not mean swallowing an animal whole, but rather eliminating meat from your diet (even Sushi, since that fish is still dead). "Raw" apparently is defined as not heating food over 116 degrees Fahrenheit, apparently on the grounds that certain enzymes are destroyed if food exceeds "natural" temperatures.
I like to do diet-restriction experiments. In the past, I have gone vegetarian, vegan, and kosher, each for a week or two at a time so I could get an idea of what it was like to be limited in those manners (vegan was awful, vegetarian was okay, Kosher wasn't bad except that I do love bacon...). I've considered trying this with Raw Food, but keep reading about withdrawal symptoms(?)
What about you? Are you a "Raw Foodist"?
