digestion 101
The main way your body gets the nutrition is through the digestive system a quick look at digestion system is a long tube that passes through the body and the only way to get the nutrition they have to leave the tube and into the body . The idea that you are what you eat is false is what absorbs.
So let's look at what happens in the first found in the mouth, where your food is chewed by making it smaller pieces and adding a chemical called ptyalin of saliva is an enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates into molecules sugars.
The next stop is the stomach, which is basically a bag of hydrochloric acid when food enters the stomach is a chemical called gastrin is released and is called to the principal cells to produce more acid. A healthy stomach has a PH [the amount of this or alkaline acid] pH range is 1 to 14 being most acid 14 the more alkaline the pH of the stomach should be 1.2- 1.5 at this pH is sterile and bacteria and viruses yeast will not grow.
Another chemical released is pepsin; pepsin with hydrochloric acid changes everything you eat in a liquid ring tone usually in half an hour.
This has to work perfectly to digest properly. What needs calcium to the main cells and salt in the stomach so the body can produce stomach acid.
Salt - chloride sodium chloride is used to make the hydrochloric acid by the stomach and sodium bicarbonate is used to make sodium by the pancreas
Soft drink, use of antacids, using pump inhibitors acid [calcium blockers] and even drink alkaline water can interfere with the digestive process. Once this problem starts waterfalls that major problems.
When the bell leaves the pancreas stomach puts sodium bicarbonate in the small intestine to make it alkaline and enzymes that break down in the hood so the villi in the small intestine walls villi move nutrients from inside the tube [thin ] in the blood. That is, if everything works perfectly.
Some foods are generally vegetable raw phytates that bind minerals and stop them getting villi. This is not bad unless you make a steady diet of them
Gluten is found in wheat rye, barley and oats but in oats called gliadin same horse different color.
For people who have an intolerance to gluten Mayo Clinic says it is 30% and naturopathic doctors say it's even more. Gluten destroys the villi in the small intestine so it is difficult or impossible to absorb nutrients. Most people do not know they have this problem, but if you have a multitude of doctors, obesity problems, have had asthma, chronic bronchitis, intestinal problems, appendicitis, and skin problems. This is something to consider.
The large intestine, this works is left to the bacteria's almost like people in the garbage dump looking for something they can use. These bacteria are a very important part of digestion and health.
It is surprising how important these people are subjected to antibiotics in food and management of the disease all the time these antibiotics not only kill the bad bacteria but good so destroy the latter part of the digestion system.
The supplement industry has noticed an interest in probiotics used as people are beginning to understand its importance

My digestion did not completely clear up until I went 100% raw. I no longer get gas, constipation, stomach growling, etc. since doing this. I can throw myself off if eating too much sweet or nuts.

Yes, the big cholesterol lie. Most conventional doctors still want cholesterol lowered even though actual science shows more heart attacks occur in people with low cholesterol than people with high cholesterol.
As far as high fibre diet goes, its OK once in awhile as it cleans the walls of the intestines,which is a good thing, however it also flushes out most of your minerals, which is bad...very bad.

No need to limit foods high in fat. Fat is not bad look at the research

Cholesterol is not the enemy, sugar is. People with low cholesterol have more heart attacks than people with high cholesterol, and yet most doctors want cholesterol low. Eating 4 eggs per day is great, however the key is to soft boil, hard boil, or cook in low heat with butter, not margerine. Cooking anything in margerine is a bad idea.

Eat More Fiber
Make fiber a regular part of every day, and you will be regular every day. Fiber is the traffic cop that helps keep everything moving smoothly in your intestines. It slows down digestion and absorption so the glucose in food enters your bloodstream more slowly, keeping your blood sugar at a more even level. Additionally, fiber increases the weight and size of your stools, and by softening them, fiber helps them pass quickly through your system. Without fiber, you get the gas, gridlock, and occasional discomfort of constipation. Instead of a fiber supplement,

you must seperate the egg white and the yolk else the binding nutrients in the white stops the nutrients in the yolk being uptaken and that leads to unbalanced food which means your organs have to provide the nutrients in order to uptake the food

you can only heat to 40c no more else you destroy the enzymes again leading to unbalanced food

also you may want to take some kind of antibacterial when consuming eggs acetic acid taken 30 minutes before or mix in some cayenne this will kill the flu viruses found in egg.

egg yolk supplies 50% of the nutrients for your heart nervous system and brain
