The video above is a compilation video with my new buddy Dave from Grants Pass, Oregon.
He’s a customer of mine that I ran into at the Grants Pass Grower’s (Farmer’s) Market. He has tried going raw on his own several times. But was never able to stick to it for more than 2-months at a time.
In this video you’ll see me smash one of his false beliefs about energy levels and protein. Turns out he had many more such ideas and that is why he was unable to stick to staying 100% raw.
It’s little false ideas like this that keep people from being able to stay raw. They end up not doing so great when they go raw but it’s not because of the raw diet but because they don’t understand how to do it correctly and do so in a long term sustainable manner.
Last I heard Dave has been 100% raw ever since the date on the video. He also got himself a copy of Savory Veggie Stews and has been making them every night.
One thing that really helped Dave was seeing how much in the way of greens I eat daily. He saw how much spinach I bought at the market for four days (3 pounds) and was blown away. The next week I bought 3.5 pounds and other greens as well for that same 4 day period.
Actually being able to see and talk to a successful raw foodists can be really helpful to your success. I never would have made it to 100% raw myself without having had raw mentors.
There are so many pitfalls and especially for the very well read person. Most newbie raw foodists end up getting really confused by all of the contradictory information out there.
In my first five years of seriously trying to go 100% raw I had a cooked food mindset and didn’t even know it. There was nothing wrong with me physically like I thought. I was just doing the diet incorrectly and had been doing so for five years. Even though I had read a ton of raw food books and books on nutrition in general.
If you want to reap the benefits of going raw I suggest you don’t mess around. Get some quality guidance as soon as you can and it will make things a lot easier for you.

Hope you had fun with the video and note where I was sprinting up the hill was super steep but it may not quite look so on the video. I wouldn’t have ever skied down such a steep hill.
When I finished my sprint I can assure that my pulse was super high. You can just listen to Dave in the video to hear how out of breath he was just walking up the hill.
There are several high level competitive athletes eating a raw diet similar to me. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t be athletic or have long lasting energy on a raw diet. If that were so we wouldn’t have raw foodists winning triathlons and racing bikes for 24 hours straight.
