Question by jagger: What’s the difference between vegan and a raw vegan?
I’m thinking of going on a diet and just wanna know, will there be much of a difference in my results if i where to select just vegan instead of raw vegan?
Answer by mockingbird Niether is a “diet” (as in weight-loss plan.) To lose weight, simply burn more calories than you consume.
Vegan means you do not eat, use, wear, buy or otherwise consume anything of animal origin. Vegans eat fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains, nuts, seeds, herbs, spices, fungi like mushrooms and yeast, oils, and everything made from them. Vegans cook and bake, like most people do.
Raw vegans also eat only plant foods, but raw. Nothing is heated over (I believe) 118 degrees under the belief that heat destroys beneficial enzymes.
