What is the best raw food diet? What percentage should be raw?

Kevin Gianni posted a great video on
What percentage of your diet should be raw to call yourself a raw foodie?

My question: Why call yourself a raw foodie?
What is this whole discussion about?
Everybody is different. For one person it is healthy to eat 100% raw, for another not.

And what is a raw food diet anyway? Is there a definition?
Even if you do eat 100% raw, there can be such a big difference between one person and the other. Do you eat raw fish, dairy or eggs? Do you eat superfoods? Do you eat edible weeds? Do you eat seaweed? And what is best? Is there an answer? Do you want to be categorized according to the food you eat?

I love the video that I put on the blog yesterday with Yogiraj Siddhanath.
People are so involved in diet, that they forget the main goal: samadhi or enlighterment.
This is the main goal, not the diet.

It is not important how much raw food we eat.
It is important, that we feel great and that you are happy.
A raw food diet will certainly help you is this, don't understand me wrong, but is not your ultimate goal.
For one person 100% raw is best, for another 75% raw.

Raw food is not the goal, it is a means to an end ….. and Kevin understands ;-)

I would love to hear what you think about this subject.
