What puzzles me is my own and some others' inability to handle an RZC diet, let alone a 100% raw vegan diet. I mean, one only has to look at omnivorous wildlife who sometimes are forced to eat very monotonous diets consisting of 100% raw plant foods or 100% raw animal foods for many months at a time, without suffering any damage at all. Are humans really so weak/vulnerable that we absolutely HAVE to eat a varied diet all the time?Not quite, no. One thing that helps people make it through lean times and monotonous periods is a healthy gut microbiota that can produce varied nutrients for the body from subpar or limited foods, as well as break down and detoxify antinutrients and sometimes even turn them into nutrients.
