So then you''ll only have vegetable protein sources, which tend not to be complete proteins, or diary, which is rather low in protein (milk is 3.2 grams per 100; for comparison, eggs are 12, canned tuna is 26 and chicken breast is some 28 grams per 100). During “the raw food diet” you eat uncooked veggies and fruits. Fruit is acceptable but your encouraged to eat less of it then the vegetables because of natural sugars found in the fruits.

But it is always preferable to get your vitamins from natural sources as this enhances the nutritional value. For example, a synthetic supplement may contain only beta-carotone (an antioxidant) which is just one of a group of caretenoids. But carrot powder contains the whole group of caretenoids, all of which are necessary to impart health benefits to the...
