I'm been mainly raw for about two months now and am thinking about going back to a bit of cooked foods. I just read this article - http://www.drmcdougall.com/misc/2009nl/mar/passionate.htm - about starches and wonder what people think of it. I can't imagine some rice and beans being very unhealthy.
Be careful. I went down this exact same path, same thought processes everything. It started with allowing some cooked grains, legumes or beans with no more than one meal each day. This did eventually wind up being included in 2 meals a day from time to time and so forth until before I knew it I was basically eating cooked again.
This happened to me not once, but twice. Same results each time.
