Hey guys, two of my housemates are raw vegans 'for health reasons' they are always getting sick it seems... are the health reasons for this way of life actually legit? (ie, more energy because the body is not wasting energy digesting food or no processed food).
What I see are trace amounts of incomplete proteins, tons of missing vitamins and minerals, and susceptibility to germs. hardly any solid food.
any one have experience or opinions?
we are talking 'raw' veganism in this case, the most hardcore of all, i guess that means nothing cooked, nothing processed, nothing dairy, nothing etc.
one of the guys says that over time he would become so used to 'clean' food that he'd get violently ill if he ate a burger or taco bell. well he ate taco bell, (for 2 weeks) and was completely fine. so much for more or less immunity... "this is how our ancestors lived"... right and they died at age 32.
what am i missing... ?
