If you have, what kind of food recipes have you tried? I am at beginning of going for it for the next 3 weeks. I have had the joint inflammation, unending digestion problems, brain fog, depression/anxiety...I am ready to try anything.

Eating virgins will probably cause problems with the authorities...

Virgins are in short supply these days...I hear.

Great minds think alike..

Have you talked to a nutritionist or dr? Do you think your diet is contributing to your issues?

I have had anxiety issues and joint problems in the past. Lifting weights has really helped reduce them for me. Sounds weird, but my knee pain is almost gone after getting on the hip sled and doing squats.

Nooooo, how do I do it? :)

I don't know about the virgin diet, but have you looked into low carb diets (especially the ketogenic diet http://www.reddit.com/help/faqs/keto)? I had all of the same health issues you mentioned and the keto diet cleared them ALL up. Worth a shot.

Something tells me that society would really frown on a diet of virgins alone.
November 25, 2012 4:16 PM
LMAO those comments about the virgin diet..xD!! Yall are funny!!....*slowly backs away*
November 25, 2012 4:17 PM
Do you only eat pure foods? Food that has never been touched? You must hate us jokesters- I will go google the diet now!
November 25, 2012 4:18 PM
Is it basically just eliminating grains and dairy products? I think doing so can help with your issues, but you may have to do it for longer than three weeks to see results.

Here I thought this was another "eating out" thread. huh

I haven't ever heard of it...but raw food is supposed to help with all of that: I try to eat 50-75% raw daily. I will tell you I feel much better the more raw fruits and vegetables I eat and I feel worse when I eat a lot of cooked foods, gluten and dairy.

I can tell you right now I feel like crying at even commercials....and I've had way too much gluten, dairy and cooked/processed foods in the last few days because of Thanksgiving. I know once I have more raw in my body, I will feel much better.

There are studies, that show higher or even a complete raw vegan life style is more healthy for you, as it does create a more alkaline ph balance in your body where disease and cancers do not thrive (they thrive in acidic ph).

Here are some sites you can look at:

Whatever you do, don't go out and spend $30 on a book.

I googled it, and all I saw was books for purchase and requests for my visa card. No thanks.

I do try to eat atleast 50% raw veggies. :)

Eat some carbs, it's no good to be crying at commercials.

I could give up gluten, sugar, eggs and peanuts...
I need corn tortillas. I eat a lot of ORGANIC soy.
And then there's cheese.

I had similar problems. I changed my eating habits. I keep away from junk foods, pop fruit drinks,bread,rolls & pasta. I eat fresh fruits & veggies, cooked & uncooked whole grains & lots of protein. IE Greek yogurt,cheese, mixed nuts,beef,pork,poultry, eggs,(2 ) a day. I use honey & maple syrup. Up to a table spoon a day of one or the other. The results. I have lost 42 lbs. since Feb. 2012. All my joint & muscle pain is gone. The digestion problems are gone. I am walking up to 5 miles a day. Sugar causes inflammation of the joints & muscles. I see a Dr. who works with obese people to help them lose weight. She told me about the sugar Good luck. P.S. The hard thing is to keep with the changes. I am starting to look at food like this. Just like you need to repair & maintain your home, food is what you use to maintain & repair your body . The better the food the better the body.

Might I suggest you look into gluten/wheat allergy and get tested, best to do the test before you go GF its easier to test for ;)!

A lot of the symptoms you listed are signs of a gluten allergy. I suffered for years with depression/stomach pains etc until I found out it was an allergy. It took about 2 weeks but all is well and I am depression free :D!

If I do it, does it reinstate my virginity?

Do any of these sources mention the fact that Raw Vegans have the same life expectancy and disease risk of people eating a cooked omnivorous diet? None of them are unbiased sites, they are all pushing a product and agenda. You may want to do some real research. Cooking food is what allowed us humans to evolve our intelligence, and our digestive systems really aren't equipped to handle raw foods very well anymore, since we started cooking foods (a few hundred thousand years ago) our digestive system has shrunk, which allowed our brain sizes to increase. We now use far more energy on our brain, and much less energy in our digestive tract, so cooking is a rather necessary part of eating. As for the pH of your body, it is very tightly controlled by several different systems, and what you eat has absolutely no effect on your body's pH level. If your body slips just slightly out of it's normal pH of 7.35-7.4 you die, pretty much instantly without emergency medical help.

no dairy or eggs? I'm out. And for the rest of you people, gluten intolerance is in a very small portion of people, meaning, you probably don't have it. and yeah, I have the research if needed.

and like tiger said "As for the pH of your body, it is very tightly controlled by several different systems, and what you eat has absolutely no effect on your body's pH level."

You people place so much importance on your intake of certain foods or supplements, why not trust your body to do it's job instead? It wants to survive. #1 in importance.
