I love hearing about what other people discover in terms of personal nutrition, and I eat some raw food myself, but I get very turned off by bashing of other nutritional approaches or a one-size-fits-all mentality.
Why shouldn't one size fit all?
Biologically speaking, there's no animal that has different optimal diets within the species. There are no monkeys that function better on beef than bananas. Raw meat is what wolves thrive off most - There are no wolves for whom the optimal diet is curry chicken.
Within the species, biologically, there is
only one optimal diet.
As far as I can tell, Steve isn't really saying "This is the way, the only way." He's saying his personal belief is that this diet is the healthiest way to go; and he's not really saying you're wrong for whatever choices you make.
