What are the top two pitfalls of the raw food diet?

Greetings from Costa Rica my wonderful organic health foodies!
I thought you would appreciate this detailed report on the pros and cons of fruit versus fat while on a raw vegan diet. Let me know what you think!

Vegetables are very nutritious, but they're low in calories. So many
raw fooders rely on fats for most of their calories - namely nuts,
seeds, avocados, coconut, and oil. This raises some questions...

- Doesn't a high fat diet put you at risk for heart disease and diabetes?
- Are raw fats somehow safer?
- What can we learn from studies by Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. Neal Barnard?

On the other extreme, some raw fooders turn to fruit for most of their
calories. This also raises questions...

- Is too much fructose bad for you?
- Does eating too much fruit cause diabetes or dental problems?
- Do the cautions we've heard about "bad carbs" apply to fruit?

To address these questions, and help you stay healthy on a raw food
diet, The Vegetarian Health Institute created a raw food lesson for
its Vegan Mastery Program.

Normally, this lesson is only available to the Institute's paying
students. But for a limited time, you can read the following excerpt
with no cost or obligation: "What Are The Dangers of Eating Too Much
Fat... Or Too Much Fruit?"

You get access the moment you subscribe to their 10-day email course
on Raw Health Secrets. To access this lesson, click here now:

peace, love and light,
