Are Calories Important on the Raw Food Diet

We’re island hopping in Greece! Check out this video we just made from the island of Santorini, in front of the huge caldera (a sunken volcano crater). Santorini is one of the seven “super-volcanos” of the world. 3600 years ago, a giant eruption led to the collapse of the most advanced civilization for their time: the Minoans (who were living on the island of Crete). Another theory is that this eruption led to the creation of the story of Atlantis.

In any case, enjoy the view, and hear some of my thoughts about calories on the raw food diet!
