Once again there are differing opinions. There just seems to be one for EVERYTHING. And when people are against something, they REALLY are against it. I've been trying to go raw for the last couple weeks. I did this to lose some weight. It's not working fo me. I've had my doubts about it because of what I've read against it. I really don't understand where you are to get protein from this unless you eat a ton of nuts (which have lots of fat, and if you over do them you will gain weight). I don't know if I should eat meat or not. Gosh, this is this all so confusing. Some people say you shouldn't eat this fruit or this vegetable (which to me contradicts the idea that God put plants down here for us to eat. If he did, then why in the world can't we eat bananas, pinapple or carrots?) Anyway, I'm just venting. I REALLY appreciate all of your advice though. I really do. I guess I'll have to find out what works best for my body (yeah, while staying fat in the meantime....).
