The Raw Deal.
Never Cook Again?
Breaking the cooked food habit can be a problem, says Roberts, as can the social aspect of following such a diet. "If you're married to someone -- as I am -- who doesn't eat this way, or if your friends don't understand you, it can be difficult." Roberts always offers to bring several of his favorite dishes when invite him to dinner.
"By keeping a positive attitude and sharing what I've learned -- as well as some of my favorite foods," says Roberts, "I'm able to reach people and let them know that following this plan isn't really about the food at all ... it's about becoming aware of how to help your body heal itself."
