Melissa Henig, RVAF diet guru
« on: January 06, 2019, 04:34:58 am »


Here's a RVAF diet guru that's worth supporting, imo:-

Have you got her recipe book that you mentioned in another post? I thought of maybe getting it. And I think Guru is a bit of an overrated wording. It´s like somebody that knows it all, that we should follow blindly, bend down to and worship. Be your own master.

You are right, except for the fact that  most people prefer to follow 1 specific dietary guru in the manner you speak of.

I know the link, but I wanted to know if you have this book and if it´s any good?

Admittedly no, I do not have the book. The least worst book would probably be Guy-Claude Burger's book "The War of Raw".

on her Utube channel, she's making lots of foods to taste good, as in mixing all sorts of combinations and many are quite sweet laden.  She's trying to appeal to the masses.

It's all about small steps. Few people are going to switch to RVAF diets if  they see people eating high-meat in public without cutlery. The social conditioning  against eating raw meat is quite powerful. I reckon, for example, that, despite my pre-RPDv diet ill-health, that I would never have switched to going RPD if I had not eaten lots of  raw aged cheese and raw oysters as a child.

I get it.  Just saying that those who come here with real health issues should realize where she is coming from.

I owned her book at one point. It was okay. Basically an abbreviated version of Aajonus Vonderplanitz' book We Want to Live without the crazy stories, and many of her recipes are taken from his other recipe book. If you have AV's books, hers is really not worth it. She just repeats what he said in his books and seminars. I listened to a recent podcast she was on and she said she has had to abandon the raw diet to a significant degree after having her first baby.
