Forward Steps!!!

In the 1917 Journal of American Medicine, Dr. Kellogg reported that in the treatment of gastrointestinal disease in over 40,000 cases, he had used surgery in only twenty cases. The rest were helped as through cleansing the bowels, diet and exercise.

Matt- my question is about tea. I am proud to say I
have completed my second week of what I would say is a
95% raw diet! I know that most raw foodists do not
drink tea, but will drinking a cup of tea in the
morning reduce the good I am doing by juicing 2x a
day? I live in Seattle, and am finding it hard to let
go of that warm drink - especially when there is so
much information regarding the health benefits of
green tea. What could you tell me about the effects
of caffeine on a raw foodist?

Many thanks for your inspiration,
Andrea

Hi Andrea,
If what you crave is a warm drink, why not drink herbal teas without caffeine? Regardless, all you have done is made improvements (Forward Steps!!!). You haven't stepped backwards. You are on the right track. If you continue to consistently live like this, at some point you will most likely give up the caffeine. Good job on the improvements!!!
Matt
If you make forward steps, that is an IMPROVEMENT. ANY PERMANENT step forward that a person makes will cause a reciprical improvement in their health.

Andrea,

I, too, drink tea. I only drink green and herbal teas, and I drink them after they've cooled a bit, so I don't cook anything in my stomach.

Congrats and good luck!
