Healthy Eaters Have an Eating Disorder?

by Steve Prussack
Host of Raw Vegan Radio

A couple of days ago, Yahoo published an article right on their homepage about the eating disorder “Orthorexia”. If you didn’t get to read it, here was what I found quite disturbing:

Orthorexics: Those affected may start by eliminating processed foods, anything with artificial colorings or flavorings as well as foods that have come into contact with pesticides. Beyond that, orthorexics may also shun caffeine, alcohol, sugar, salt, wheat and dairy foods. Some limit themselves to raw foods.”A Healthy Foods Diet Doesn’t Stoke Industry Profits, Hence the Orthorexia Label”
-misinformed author of this story: Lisa Collier Cool

Here is what Dr. Janice Stanger had to say about this ridiculous fake eating disorder that is clearly getting a lot of mainstream press.

Vegetables. Fruits. Crunchy fresh nuts. Fragrant herbs and spices.

Are you forming a picture of a delicious day of eating?

Is David Wolfe A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothes?

Is David Wolfe A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothes?

by Steve Prussack
Host of Raw Vegan Radio

There has been a lot talk in the Raw Food community about David Wolfe and his values. For years he was recommending a raw vegan diet. Lately, he has changed his tune. He now recommends some animal products, such as deer antler, ants, and even deer placenta.

Although we did not touch on raw vegan vs. including animal products in the diet, we did discuss his marketing and business practices. Here is what David said, uncensored….let me know what you think about all of this…

Steve: There are some that say you are involved with this movement for the money. I want to know what you would say to those listeners with the supplements and things like that and what your thoughts are on that.

David Wolfe: Yeah, I mean, the first thing is when I got involved in this there was no money in raw foods. That is something that we have created by going out there and actually eating raw, organic, and natural foods

Transcending The Chaos And The Shift

I really was moved by this recent article by Tamara Messenger. She is a friend, and submitted this version for Raw Vegan Radio. I hope you feel as moved by this article as I did. In this uncertain world, we are left with growing feelings of unease these days. I hope this article provides you with some answers.

The Earth is shifting in unprecedented ways … and the sensitive among us are going hay-wire. If you are on the Raw food path, you no longer have addictive foods to numb you down, and I have no doubt that you have become more sensitive to the fluctuations of our Mother Earth’s energy.

For some of us who are more sensitive to energy and emotional fluctuation, it has been almost a full time job just to stay centered, and keep being productive. Now is the time for very deep clearing, and heart expansion, so that you can ride the wave of The Shift with ease and grace.

So many people have been requesting my help recently for “unexplained constant anxiety” “disorientation” and “no motivation.” Type A outgoing people have been suddenly finding themselves filled with grief or dread. Action has been replaced by apathy. Cheery people
