Every body is different. And since we aren’t just a body but a whole being intertwined with our body, every being is even more vastly different as our almost limitless combinations and permutations of factors affect our health and the right way for us to eat as individuals.
If we are just looking at the purely physical body, even then, the variations in blood type, history, genetics, activity level, and much more all play a part in determining the right diet for us at this particular time in our lives.
Other factors that play a huge part in how we should eat are our tastes, mental state, emotional needs, lifestyle, relationships, family, work, finances, location, climate, health goals, priorities, beliefs etc…
Self-knowledge isn’t really taught. We are taught to believe the experts. And we tend to believe marketing; at least we would like to believe any marketing that gives us hope.
But what if developing a diet that is right for you is actually inner work. It is paying attention to how your body feels. It is, first, wanting to feel a sense of well-being, balance, energy, health. It is loving yourself enough to do what you need to do to feel good, while also taking care of all other aspects of your life. Sounds like an almost impossible balancing act.
Well, that’s why not too many people get to experience this. It is like an art-form. You have to practice in a dedicated manner for years to master an art-form. But it is not only worth it, it is perhaps an essential art to master to maximize our potential in this life. So we must start now.
Even if I am not sure that the 100% raw vegan diet is right for all people at all times (except perhaps in theory), I do believe that it would be of incredible benefit to anyone to try it for a time! – Ideally 1-3 years, but even if for a few months, a few weeks, or a few days!
There are insights to be gained from this path. Experiencing 100% raw is unlike reading about it, hearing about it, or observing it. Like child-birth, falling in love, and many other things, you just can’t explain it; you actually have to experience it to understand it.
If you are unsure about what foods are good for you, what foods are harming you, and how various foods affect you in general, if you are confused about what and how to eat, going 100% raw can be extremely helpful for bringing super-clarity on these topics.
By going 100% raw you eliminate all the toxins, allergens and common food sensitivities from your diet at once. By starting at this Ground Zero you simply gain a tremendous and rapid understanding of your relationship to food. Most people are shocked, surprised, and overawed at how quickly they feel better in every way once they are eating raw.
And from there you can try to add back various cooked foods to your diet and you will be completely in tune with exactly how each of these foods affect you, and how different combinations affect you.
Many people realize that they feel best by far on a 100% raw diet, although they may be able to add more cooked foods after doing a healing year or two raw.
Similarly, people who can’t digest fats (oils/nuts) or can’t handle sugar (fruits) on a 100% raw food diet and need to eat a more restricted / less balanced raw diet at first, will often quickly re-gain the ability to eat these foods as the raw diet is so healing for the digestive system.
Self-knowledge is a powerful thing, and is the key to claiming your birthright to health! Just as certain subjects are required reading for becoming a well-rounded person, trying the 100% raw vegan diet (preferably a well-balanced one designed by an experienced guide and gifted chef with proven delicious recipes that are easy to make) should be a required experience for any truth-seeker or health-enthusiast!
