before day i went raw for about 2 days. i was eating basically lots of spinach/various types of lettuce + oranges/kiwis/bananas/apples/dried figs/dried dates/ raisins/kidney beans, etc... anyway today i got a migrane and diarhea. and i dont really think i got sick because i havent been in contact or heard of any people getting sick lately where i am. so does this usually happen or just some unlucky circumstances?

Uncooked kidney beans? No such thing. Well, there is - but no one would eat such a thing - it is dangerous. There is no such thing as raw kidney beans. You can sprout them - don't have any idea how good they are though.

So, the day before you went on a raw diet for 2 days only you were eating all those foods and now on the 3rd day you have migraine and diarhea? I am understanding that right? Or are you saying that is what you ate on the 2 days you were raw?

What did you eat before that? any caffefine?

Migraines and diarhea can be detox symptoms - esp the headaches. Even if you combine the wrong types of food for you on a raw diet - you can have some digestive problems. Have any of those foods given you diarhea before?

Make sure you drink alot of water too.

Huh? How about when they are still on the plant?

No - you can't eat raw kidney beans. They're toxic. Cooking breaks down the toxin, PHA.

"Toxic" is a harsh word. Apparently even water is toxic these days.

Like any natural food source, toxicity is determined by the amount. I eat raw kidney beans, chickpeas & soya beans, and I have no problem. It took me exactly 4 days for my body to adjust, and it hasn't killed me yet (4 years later). And yeah, I've read all the reports about "toxic enzymes", and that's exactly why I decided to test their validity. You can guess my conclusion.

I actually find that raw beans have an amazing "natural appetite suppressant" quality. If I don't want to eat a big meal, I'll eat a handful of raw soya beans 5 minutes beforehand. This ensures that I won't gorge myself. I find it useful before competing in an athletic event where I want just enough in my gut to give me energy but not so much that it'll weigh me down.

Disclaimer (as always): My body chemistry is by no means the same as anyone else's, so I neigher encourage nor discourage others to follow suit. I just wanted to share my personal experience.
