Minor clarification here. What I was talking about is, when eating, you reach
a point where you are satisfied, that's the inner voice saying to stop. However
as most raw foods are so delicious, there is another inner voice saying, go
ahead and eat more oranges (for example) - they taste great! It is indeed
hard to overeat raw foods, and the consequences of overeating raw foods are
not as bad as cooked/processed foods, but it is possible. I have seen some raw
fooders at the local support group potlucks eat 3 platefuls of food, piled
high. Seems like an awful lot to me...

I'm not a fan of fermented foods, and was merely responding to your earlier
inquiry. The big advantage of sprout milk yogurt is that it might give you
some B-vitamins, which are hard to get in most other raw foods. Would an
animal eat fermented food in the wild? If it's hungry enough, and other foods
are not available, it probably would. You, of course, can choose to eat it or
not. Regarding wheatgrass juice, it is an herbal medicine, more than a food.
Many animals, when sick in the wild, chew grass (not just herbivores).

By the way, many animals also eat sprouting seeds (squirrels, other rodents),
many animals also eat shoots - young plants - in the spring. So sprouts and
greens are within the scenario you describe.
