>rich: eating airy produce is just like fasting to me.
It's obvious you've never fasted. You're just embarrassing yourself.
>rich: i don't see a point to fasting, i don't think it's natural
(a) The point is to accomplish in 3 weeks what you haven't been able
do in 3 years.
(b) It's natural. All species do it. Not every animal has the
being able to find food whenever it wants it.
rich again: yea, but they're on the look for food when they're
<What's unnatural is
having food around whenever you want it.
>i don't see any of the other animals fasting
They do it when you aren't watching them then. Some even hibernate.
>and my body wants a certain amount of food each day.
It also wants cooked food, but that doesn't mean it's wants are
>as long as it's getting healthy, raw plant food i think that's a good
Yes, it's a good thing.
>why go hungry? i see no point to it,
To get well faster.
>but in general i don't see fasting as something that i would do for
the long term, so why do it at all?
Changing the oil in your car is not something you'd want to do every
either, but it's still a good idea to do it periodically.
rich again: we've obviously reached an impasse here with the
fasting, some prescribe to such as yourself, some don't.
>rich: keep on trucking, what do you specifically eat?
Specifically, different foods at different times of year, depending on
what's in season, what I can afford, and what I grow in my garden --
Today, I ate bananas, grapes, raisins, tomatoes, a zucchini,
brazil nuts, walnuts, an egg, broccoli, and kale.
rich again: instead of raisins, eat grapes, i don't know what you
use flaxseeds for, what are they and why do you consider them a
food? an egg is not raw vegan, i don't like the taste of kale, i
don't eat it.
>Why do you ask?
to get an understanding of a feature from where you're coming from
