    So why Vegan/raw foods? I'm always curious as to people's motivations to completely ignore the existence of their incisors, or think maybe they got there by accident.

    Welcome.

    I truly admire all the people who do so well with math, engineering, etc.

    A few reasons
    1. I just don't like meat. I was more of an accidental vegetarian before I actually called myself one.

    2. I was constantly sick... like food-poisoning-symptom-sick... when I eliminated meat and dairy I didn't have vomiting episodes every two weeks.

    3. My "normalcy pills" weren't working- they were making me worse... I read about the positive neurological effects veganism and raw foodism claimed to offer and thought I'd give it a try. I wouldn't say going off of medications is the right choice for everyone, but it worked for me. I haven't felt as energetic or clear headed since I was 14.

    4. Control. I usually don't mention this one because I don't want to stereotype vegans/raw foodists as having disordered eating... because the raw foodist and vegans I know are very interested in health (not image)... I learn quite a bit from them... and they're definitely not disordered. In my case, however... I had been somewhere between an "obsessive compulsive ED" to EDNOS (pretty much the same thing) to anorexia... so I've found it's a healthier way to steer my need for control (removes anxiety effectively)... without going into dangerous eating (or rather... not eating) patterns.

    Basically, I feel like a healthier overall person when I'm raw.

    These are great reasons. My sister recently went off meat and processed foods and tells me she feels phenomenal, so much so that I'm intrigued to give the "no meat" routine a go for a good month or two, but I've never had the impetus to do it.

    There are many reasons why I've gone raw vegan, the most important reason being: The body responds to cooked food as an invader of the body; after ingesting cooked food, the white blood cell count increases, which does not occur when eating raw food. This means the body is literally treating all cooked food as poison.

    That was a very good read Lane, thanks for sharing

    Might've convinced me. But not tonight, I want to eat one more slice of pizza. I'll start tomorrow.
