For the last few months I've been eating only organic raw fruits and vegetables. That diet cost (conservatively)about three hundred bucks a month. This month I had only eighty dollars for food, so I've been eating beans, rice, and pasta. I can feel the difference; I'm tired, I've got headaches, and I'm dehydrated. I'm hungry all the time, in a different way than when I was eating raw. Now it's more thirst than hunger - like my stomach is suffocating.
