See nutritionist: It sounds like a visit to a nutritionist would be a good idea. Also just a discussion with the family doctor could help with understanding the long term problems with such a diet.

Can you eat raw frozen and raw fresh vegetables as long as you rinse them first? I don't see the issue since we don't cook our raw fruit.

Can you eat raw frozen and raw fresh vegetables as long as you rinse them first? I don't see the issue since we don't cook our raw fruit.

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. Cruciferous veggies have chemicals that suppress thyroid function if eaten in excess that are deactivated by cooking.

Is peanut butter a good or bad thing to eat when ur trying to make sure that u don't get a yeast infection back? (Pb in peanut butter tastykakes)

Tastykakes BAD!!!: Most yeast infections occur after antibiotics. Usually there is some yeast overgrowth in the intestines as well as vaginally and sugar/starches feed the yeast, increasing chance of recurrence. Unsweetened peanut butter is OK but sweets like tastykakes are best avoided as much as possible. Taking probiotics will help too. See http://tinyurl.com/234ag4b ...Read more
