Raw food thoughts...: Raw fruits and raw vegetables have many benefits, but there are some drawbacks, which is why all human cultures eat cooked food. Raw plants have tough Cellulose fiber, so require more chewing to break into the cells so we can get the nutrients. Undigested fiber is fermentation food for our gut bacteria, leading to gas.

OK for most BUT...: Many people eat only raw vegetables (and raw food) for health benefits, but many nutrients in vegetables are better absorbed when cooked (esp. if boiled or steamed) while others are degraded by cooking.

However, overwashing damages skin cells, and can make aromas worse. Avoid std's. Keep vaginal ph normal. ...Read more

Help needed: At this weight level you are morbidly obese and at risk for your life. It doesn't matter what you eat but you must severely cut the quantity. When you weigh this much, you cannot function yourself but must be having "helpers" supply your food. They have to be enlisted in your weight loss program.
