raw food means nothing cooked. People who eat "raw" tend to eat a lot of veggies, a lot of smoothies and blended veggie/fruit drinks, lots of dehydrated foods, nothing processed, nothing canned or premade. It's very hard to eat raw all the time. I did try the SCD diet and it was hard enough to eat no carbs but raw is even harder. You can't eat
cookies but you can eat things like macaroons if they aren't cooked. Dehydrating is cooked at a low temp, not sure why that is considered acceptable. Yogurt is even considered cooked because the milk is heated *i think*. Some cheeses and nuts are raw but you have to look for them specifically. fermented foods are usually raw.
Dietary changes never helped me too much. I eat mostly what I want to with the exception of sugars, I keep them to a minimum. If i were feeling bad, I know I owuld go back on my health food kick (even though it doesn't help).
