    I'm a whole foods gluten free vegan and less than 5% of my diet is processed foods. It works for me 🙂 And I'm only gluten free because I have an allergy- I don't necessarily think gluten free oatmeal is healthier than regular oatmeal. It does help me avoid a lot of the processed things-like vegan cookies, vegan chicken nuggets, etc.

    "CONCLUSIONS:
    The consumption of a raw food diet is associated with a high loss of body weight. Since many raw food dieters exhibited underweight and amenorrhea, a very strict raw food diet cannot be recommended on a long-term basis."

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10436305

    "Shifting to the uncooked vegan diet significantly increased the intakes of energy and many nutrients. In spite of the increased energy intake, the group on the vegan diet lost 9% of their body weight during the intervention period, indicating a low availability of energy from the vegan diet."

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8269890

    " Changing the ratio of raw food intake toward an extreme regimen with a very low intake of vitamin B-12 may be harmful in the prevention of coronary heart disease rather than providing additional benefits as occurs with milder dietary regimens."
