The Calorie Paradox of Raw Veganism

The discussion here of the calorie paradox is inspired by the discussion of the topic in The Natural Hygiene Handbook (1996, American Natural Hygiene Society, pp. 46-47), although they don't use the terminology "paradox." Careful consideration and evaluation of the raw calorie paradox provides valuable insights into raw veganism, and goes a considerable way toward explaining why so very few people succeed or thrive, long term, on 100% raw vegan diets, and also why so many raw vegans are extremely thin/emaciated.
