An Interview with David Wolfe
Success on Raw-Food
and Vegetarian Diets
Wolfe is a well-known author and lecturer on raw food and health.
He is the author of the books, Eating For Beauty and The
Sunfood Diet Success System, and the co-founder of Nature's
First Law. I've known David for years and I've always been
interested in his latest research. Here is an interview that I've
done with him recently. My comments are in green and my questions
in italics as always. To go to David's website, click
Raw vegan pregnancy
had many reports of women experiencing difficulties maintaining a raw
vegan diet during pregnancy — as well as raising health children that
way. Any comments on that? In your opinion, what would be the ideal
nutrition for pregnant women and young children?
There are a lot of important nutritional
qualities that need to be looked at during pregnancy. One is that you
can’t just go on fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds and get through a
pregnancy in a really proper way, in nearly all cases. But then, of
course, there are some people who can, because their reserves are higher,
or they produce more long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, or whatever metabolic
reason. What we’ve got to look at more is the super-food category and
experience, by the mother, before pregnancy with the entire spectrum of
raw plant foods available.
When a woman gets pregnant, her body
is going to go back to what she’s familiar when, to what’s known to
her. For example, if a woman has been a raw-foodist for a year and only
done a very limited thing, maybe
a natural hygiene kind of raw-food diet, then if she gets pregnant she
could get all these crazy cravings for all this exotic kind of stuff and
old foods. That may be an uncontrollable thing because her body doesn’t
have enough nutrition in that type of diet to actually carry a pregnancy
all the way through. What would we do then? Well, we look at some of the
super-foods, we look at long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, which is found in
fish. Now where does the fish get it from? It gets it from algae. Well,
you can grow algae that contains long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, and dry
it and press the oil out of it, and get that pure, long-chain omega-3 fatty
acid. I recommend that for pregnancy. That’s the main cause of post-partum
depression — having all the omega-3 sucked out of the mother.
Of course you’ve got to look at highly-mineralized diet. 92-minerals
wheatgrass is a technology that we have now, where you can grow
wheatgrass with diluted ocean water, and that grass pulls in all
minerals. And when you have that kind of thing, you have a complete
mineral complement every single day. That’s a very powerful technology
for a pregnancy, because in pregnancy there may be a specific desire for a
certain mineral that might not be present in a standard, kind of raw vegan,
natural hygiene diet, but could be in a 92-mineral wheatgrass drink. There
are all kinds of things that are becoming available to us now that make it
possible to work.
An overview of a David Wolfe's diet
a person doesn’t have a lot of time, or if nutrition is not their main
interest, they have a busy life, a job, etc., how would that person find
the best diet for them without reading hundreds of books on the subject?
I think people who come to my seminars get the information we’re talking
about here. And what this does is empower them with general principles of
understanding. And again, in a moment I’ll reiterate all of the general
principles, so it’s pretty clear what we’re looking at here. From
those principles, people can guide themselves to a healthier lifestyle.
Let’s take individual foods from each category:
Fruits. Generally staying away from high-sugar fruits, getting more
into the low-sugar fruits, like cucumber, green apple, bell pepper,
tomato, because we see that there can a problem with too much sugar in the
Vegetables. Green leafy vegetables. If we’re confused, not sure
what to do, then green vegetable juice is a great way to start. That would
be celery-based, celery-cucumber, celery-cucumber-apple, that kind of
Nuts & seeds. Certain nuts and seeds have more nutritional
qualities than others. For example, Brazil nuts have a very high amount of
selenium, so that would be something we would want to look at as a food.
We talked about hemp seeds and flax seeds: very important. With pumpkin
seeds, those three would be the ones that I would highly recommend.
Sprouts. When we’re
looking at sprouts, I’d recommend growing sprouts or growing grasses
with diluted ocean water — 20 to 1 solution of ocean water presents
all minerals to the sprouts, and grass can pull all minerals present.
This is a very unique and amazing technology that’s now crossed paths
with the raw-food diet in the last year! With this, you can get
mineralization from grass if it’s watered with diluted ocean water,
because the ocean contains all minerals. That, all of a sudden, is now on
