What is his take on raw food?
What does he think is the right way to be raw?
I just recently heard about him and am curious.

He has done 100% raw for many years and has a lot of experience with patients. He advocates a diet that is not too high in fruit. He's into green juices and blended foods. He also believes in not overeating. He actually eats pretty small amounts. He also likes fasting. In Paul Nison's book The Raw Life, there is an interview with him. Also , there is another one in the book Raw Spirit.

he's been a raw foodist for over 40 years, you would have to ask him about his beliefs.
I personally like the way, Alissa Cohen does raw, she has a few suppliments, but that is it, she says eat raw, it's that simple.

Thanks Brianna and RP. I was just curious as I have heard his name from other raw food friends.

I'm not familiar with her or him, but one thing I like to do before considering any advice from "guru" types, is to check their credentials and see where they got their "Dr" from and what it's in. There are instututions who will give you a doctorate for like 50 bucks, or for writing an essay and a thousand bucks, etc., and I've been surprised at how many Dr so and sos have degrees from a cracker jack box, so that's always my first step. Some might have a degree from a fairly reputable institution but in another field. If they have faulty or questionable or non-related credentials, that has a big influence in how much weight I give their advice.

Fred Bisci is a wonderful guy. He is not only raw for 40 plus years but he has also been a praticing M.D. in New York for longer. I was fortunate to be able to seek his advice a few times for my husband and have to say I instantly respected the man and his experience. He has helped many patients with some very serious conditions. He has a huge, giant heart and a lot of knowledge gained over decades of experience practicing medicine and nutrition!
He is also a friend of Alissa's and that says it all right there. :D
