Remember that raw vegan is good for detoxing but it is not sustainable. You will develop deficiencies if you stay on it long term.

Strict WFPB has every micronutrient you need except B12 which can easily be supplemented. Animals actually get their B12 from eating plants. We then eat the animals. That is how we get the B12 from eating the animal flesh. You are probably correct about "100% raw" vegan. I am a whole food plant-based vegan. That is totally sustainable. I have been eating like this sine 2013.

Quote
Vitamin B12 is produced by bacteria, not animals or plants. Animals, including humans, must obtain it directly or indirectly from bacteria. Farmed animals receive B12 by eating fortified (supplemented) feed, being exposed to bacteria-laden manure and drinking untreated (contaminated) water

This is so very interesting and I am very happy to hear that you have found your optimal health.

It's hard for most people to avoid meat altogether though.  Is it possible that by avoiding meat and dairy you are simply avoiding all the hormones, antibiotics and preservatives used in those modern industries?  Have you tried organic meats and dairy to see if you could tolerate them?  There is much nutrition in meats and dairy.

You don't have to totally eliminate meat but it should be limited in the human diet (Pritikin is very healthy and easily sustainable long-term). Americans eat way too much meat/dairy and refined/processed carbs (deadly combination). One person dies in the US every 40 seconds of heart disease because of eating the standard American diet. This is the leading killer in both men and women in the US. Genetics does play a role, but this is mostly a lifestyle disease.

Hey guys, hope you all doing great   :thumbsup:

I was already posted my Success story few years ago. Then I thought, ok let's make a post again for those who worried about sleep.

My sleep returned to me after 3 years. Actually I was very hopeless like you guys, even after 2 years, there was no improvement on my sleep.

Then I found about Raw Vegan Lifestyle. A lady on YouTube cured her insomnia and many other problems with Raw Vegan Diet.

So I thought I should give it a try.

And Bingo  :D after few months, I began to start sleeping Normally.

I noticed my sleep time gradually increasing from ZERO sleep, to 4hr, 6hr, 7hr... and after 6plus years , it's up to 10hr sleep every night and some days, I sleep on day time, and no problem getting sleep at night  :smitten:

So, for those who worried about sleep, it will come back to you, eat healthy, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, No meat, No diary, No processed food. Just Raw vegetable and Fruits  :thumbsup:

When your sleep returned after 3 years, was it 3 years from start of taper or 3 years after being off completely?
Thanks

OLUfummy1 -, 100% Raw Vegan is hard to sustain but can be healthy. You don't have to be 100% or raw to get the most health benefits out of a plant based diet. I eat maybe 2-3 oz of meat (no more) daily, no dairy, no sugar, no processed carbs. I eat mostly things like salads, fruits and veggies, oat groats, ton of beans, okra, greens like kale, mustard, and collards, etc. You will be amazed at the improvement in your health biomarkers if you can stick to the diet long-term. I have been eating this way since 2013. Oat groats or steel cut oats are fantastic for lowering bad LDL cholesterol. I can personally testify to that.

It takes about a month for your taste buds to adapt when you radically change your diet like this. After a month, you come to love your new healthy way of eating. I do miss the cheeseburgers, candy, cookies, pizza, etc. but that stuff was slowly killing me. I literally did a food CT. LOL

I need to do a food CT. I eat way too much crap and I am almost 53. I want to live as long as possible, so I better clean up my diet. Everybody says their diet is the best. I'm not sure about doing raw vegan or what. I just know that i eat way too much crap. I weigh 138 and my best clothes only fit if I am 124 or below. I could easily get down that far id I quit eating garbage. I admire you guys who eat clean. Good for you! Also, to sleep 10 hours a night and wake up refreshed would be awesome! I haven't slept 10 hours in 4 to 5 years. Must feel lovely.

How long were you on benzos?

The OP was a short-term user. I looked at his profile and read some of his previous posts.

He said>>>
Quote
I'm a very short benzo user. I was on Klonopin .25 (Known as Clonotril in India) for 2 and half weeks.

He was not on very long or took very much, so maybe the benzos had little to do with his 3 year inability to sleep, IDK.

Best book I've read so far for healthy eating:  "Younger You" by Kara Fitzgerald
https://www.amazon.com/Younger-You-Reverse-Age_and-Longer/dp/0306924838/ref=sr_1_1?crid=CNK9OO6KYMV3&keywords=younger+you+kara+fitzgerald&qid=1643907344&s=books&sprefix=younger+you%2Cstripbooks%2C157&sr=1-1

I'm convinced that the principles outlined in this book about changing our epigenetics are at play in our recovery from benzos.
