A Mental Breakthrough re Overts

I've been feeling some doubts about my beliefs re overts (high fat fruits, nuts).
Now I've revised my attitude somewhat, and am feeling much happier as a result.

I was fortunate to read the following thread on rawvegantalk a day or so ago: .
Please see my correspondence with Adam on this thread. Here's my side of it:

Thanks, Adam,f...

As I have said before, this campaign has been remarkably easy so far: the decision to go raw, made in a moment of sickness, has carried me on without another thought being necessary, for over 6 weeks. Internally, in my mind, there was perfect peace and harmony. The very word 'campaign' seemed out of place. No effort was required.

A week or so ago, I was standing in the supermarket waiting for the guys to cut me up a watermelon.

My Summer Start : Report after 4 weeks:

The last week, and indeed the whole 4 weeks, have been satisfactory from 2 points of view:

1. The ingestion of harmful, cooked food has been stopped.

January 2011.

I was about 99.7% vegan during 2010.

So when people were talking about New Year's resolutions I thought: why not tighten up on strictness? Forego the occasional ice-cream cone. Refuse an offer of potato salad with delicious mayonaise on it. Aim at 99.97% vegan! Then I might still have two ice-creams in the year...

But on 12 January I woke up feeling really terrible. No apparent reason. Neuralgia in my head, a bit feverish, no possibility of eating. Maybe that's when the penny...

I was a dedicated omni till I was 35. I was satisfied with my diet, which included everything plus a moderate amount of alcohol.
I never smoked, however.
