2034Re: [Raw Food] Dr. Ornish Diet
- May 1, 2002I have to agree with Regina. Dr. Ornish does not recommend a raw diet
anyway. His program is quite old.
I bet he recommends foods like bread and chips that have just been
proven to have high levels of carcinogens. If he recommends cooked
foods I don't take his information seriously. It may be helpful to
people with heart disease, but couldn't compare to healthy a raw diet
Cooked fats are the problem not raw fats. We need fat in our diets.
Where does he suppose a raw foodist will get their fat? Avocados and
nuts are a great source for these things.
Does Dr. Ornish distinguish between raw fats versus cooked fats?
Just an interesting aside for you Seinfeld Fans. There is one episode
of Seifeld where Kramer becomes a raw foodist. He doesn't say
anything with the term raw. Instead he said he was only eating Fresh
foods. He threw out his oven I think. He was eating fruits and even
meats all Fresh or uncooked.
He was always going to Jerry's apartment to get more food because his
new waitress girlfriend was constantly demanding food and I guess he
didn't have the stuff to please her.
