Have been raw since 9/11/05 and have seen many benefits such as, weight loss, clearer skin, higher energy. The fact that I can eat as much as I want is great also. However, I have had some problems along the way such as detox days, especially in the beginning along with headaches and I have not been lifting as much weight. (some of this on another thread)
Update on my raw experience: I know my weight lifting is off but I regarded that to the weight loss I was experiencing. Problem is, I am very sore after working out for days. My recovery is not fast enough and that can't be good.
I read somewhere (need to find it) about a weight lifter who ate "high raw" but also supplimented with vegan protein drinks. Protein has been regarded as the key to rapid muscle recover and my be what I need. I will do more research to find out more and may go to a high raw / 75% or more diet.
If anyone has any info on recovery when raw that would be helpful.
