What, no lettuce? Unless you don't like it, of course. Baby spinach is great raw with some apple slices (the spinach scare is over, I know a lot of people got out of the habit for that reason).

you definitely need to add leafy greens - baby spinach, kale, chard, romaine, greenleaf lettuce, etc.

I second the leafy greens as Jenna says.<br><br>
I don't agree with completely raw or fruitarian but I do believe you should eat tons of Kale and the others Jenna mentioned, they are amongst the most nutrient dense and healthiest foods on the planet.

Taliaj: Learn where protein comes from.

Jessica Alana, maybe you should question where protein comes from as the foods she just mentioned are extremely low in protein. I think I know a lot about protein as I have read up on this subject extensively. Maybe you have more research to do. She really wouldn't be getting any protein from those foods except for the nuts she would be eating, but I don't believe this will cover it. Green vegetables, however, are loaded with protein. If she eats enough green foods, nuts, and seeds and not just fruit, I think she will be fine.

Jessica Alana, I also believe there is a nicer why to express your opinion. If you felt that I was wrong in questioning where her protein came from, you should have said, well Talia, I think she will be getting enough protein because of A, B, and C. Not, Talia, learn were protein comes from. This is condescending and assumes that I am stupid and don't know my facts.

I am trying to be civil here and you are being explosive. Elijah is right, calm your horns. I am just trying to help and I want the forums to be a nice and supportive place even if we are not on the same page.

I am being supportive. I am trying to help her make the raw diet work for her and am trying to make sure that she is getting all the nutrient requirements her body needs. I want her to be healthy. I am sorry you don't see this.

There is plenty of protein, as long as she eats the calories she needs for the day.<br><br><br><br>
Try going to fitday.com and plug in some fruits and vegetables.

It is not supportive. You've come to this message board with 8,000 of your cronies in tow, spamming every thread about your dad and his diet. ENOUGH. Seriously.

I'm not a raw foodist, but I do believe taliaj is right. The OP needs more vegetables in this diet. Such as dark greens, broccoli, green beans...
