Don't eat meat and filler foods like bread. Bread and rice are poverty foods, with no nutrition. Eat fruits, veggies, and assortment of nuts. All raw. Avoid high starch veggies like potatoes or keep them at a bare minimum. Absolutely NO oil at all, it all bad, even olive oil. Try to keep your diet as close to a monkey in the jungle as you can.

Yup. I struggled myself with the raw food diet. It was mostly digestive issues and nothing else.
With time though, I just thought, ok let me just eat whatever I feel like as long as it's raw. That got me started. Eventually I went all raw, and I started with the Gabriel Cousens plan. It is a long term 9-18 months program to ease you into the ultimate long term raw food diet, which can be done FOR LIFE. It's not a cleanse. It's a lifestyle.
once I found that, my digestive issues had mostly to do with caffeine, and easing into a higher fat diet, then I knew this was for me. Metabolically speaking the body just has to adjust to a higher fat diet. Digestively speaking, you'll learn how to eat foods and in which order (food combos) that will make it work.
For me.. on a phase 1, a meal is germinated nuts and seeds, before a big bowl of greens (1-2lbs total a day) and a smaller bowl of berries. And flax/chia sprouts 2-3 tblsp twice a day.
Instead of the fruits you can also have sprouts of various kinds (not grains).
