Vegans and raw foodists overeat fats like nuts, seeds and avocados because these foods have the same characteristics of the dairy and meat they used to eat. To become vegan, I ate tons of peanut butter and it helped me to get off of eating meat. In order to stop eating dairy I ate a lot of nuts and dried fruits. Those foods were a perfect substitute for the fat laden dairy products I ate before. Vegans also will search for foods that contain a lot of protein. Since raw food eaters don’t eat beans, they’ll have to eat tons of nuts and seeds to compensate in order to get enough protein.
