I was doing a form of the raw diet this past summer, lots of raw fruits and veggies, but also added chicken for the protein. Personally I loved it, but was not able to stay with it as I suffer blockage severely, and found I could not tolerate the diet anymore. I miss the salads, yes it is alot of chopping and dicing but dang it tasted good. I even went to making my own salad dressings to eliminate preservatives. (the idea being, balance your raw veggies, with fruits, and nuts) I think whatever we do to make ourselves feel better, it is worth a try. I do not believe it will cure cancer, but it can't hurt. I know it helped my friend with cholesteral, as well as high blood pressure.
I have a friend who ate raw for a while. She felt really good on it but it is a huge amount of work to prepare. And yes, getting enough protein can be a challenge.
Thank you for you reply. I don't think I explain raw food very well. There is almost no meet included in the diet, but fish. No rice , no bread. Lots of nuts, lot of fresh vegs and fruits. I just thought there is not enough protein for a person. I have a couple of people telling me about this in our cancer community.
I will eat raw vegetables on a regular basis. As far as meats, eggs, etc...I would not take the risk of getting sick from eating these foods uncooked. I've never heard doing so would benefit OVCA patients.
