    Raw foodism is silly. Here's why...

    I never realized how ridiculous the raw food diet actually is until I saw this video. Look at the quantity of stuff required per week! This is just madness. Feel free to fast forward to the 1:00 mark.

    yup - saw a vegan athlete recommending his diet - 9000cals/day just to get everything he needed. as a farmer this made me gulp! we're (apparently) going to struggle feeding 9billion soon...what if they all wanted 9000cals of bananas/day

    She doesn't look very healthy when it comes to body composition.
    But gosh, must be expensive haha. Absolutely stupid.

    Yah, I'll bet it has. I can't imagine eating that and not shitting my pants at least 5 times a day.


    "...and never hungry"

    That's because in between running to the toilet you're standing in front of that counter spending (wasting) all your time chewing.

    sbhikes, I think you look better, stronger, and healthier.

    She's just young and full of makeup.

    I love fruits, don't get me wrong, but after 2 or 3 servings I don't feel so well...

    Good for you. I can eat tons of fruit but I can't do it without getting fat. It increases my appetite and eventually I get sugar hunger/shakes and frack my blood sugar. I had the best time ever in my life in terms of body composition those 3 weeks we vacationed in the South, ate nothing but fruit, veggies and a bit of bread and oil and swam and hiked all day long. The only time I was close to 110 lbs & perfect for me... It was awesome, but this lifestyle is not sustainable when you live in the 6+ months of winter, have to work and commute and well... work.

    Sheesh, I am so hungry now, I can't concentrate & I already ate all the allocated 3 eggs and 1/2 cup egg whites and 20 g Brazil nuts and half a cucumber. This video makes me want to cry for its glorious colors and veggies and fruit.

    If I could be her & never hungry and that slender, I'd sell my soul....

    This made me crack up! Seriously, I love fruit, but if I were to eat raw veggies and fruit all day every day, it'd be a pure diuretic for me. I would end up with her body composition, certainly - looking lean but with high BF%.
