I was just wondering, what are some specific foods that a raw diet should not contain?
Am i allowed to eat wholegrain bread? If not, what can be used as a substitute?
Also, whats all this business about juice fasting? What is it and do all raw diets follow it?

There are lots of books available to guide you and an abundance of information on the internet.
Raw food is anything that has NEVER been heated to over 118F or about 46C. That excludes anything that has ever been pasteurised.
Instead of bread we normally use dehydrated crackers.
A raw food journey is something personal. Some starts with gradual transition from cooked to raw and others just jump right into it.
There are no strict rules that everyone should follow. Some go for juice fasting and other sorts of cleansing diet. You're on the right track just as long as your providing your body's needs.

You can eat the bread if you want. It's up to you and probably won't kill you once in awhile. The reason people avoid it cause its not raw and some of it is processed. You can always make your own bread in a dehydrator. I do this once in awhile.
Also once in awhile I have foods I am not suppose to have. But I feel it's ok because without these few slip ups I may go in a binge. Gradually you will move away from certain foods because you will realize that certain foods are an addiction. The less and less you eat it the addiction loses its grip on you.

Yeah frozen fruits are fine.

Frozen fruits are truly "raw" or they loose their raw ingredients, and enzymes?

Are you asking if their nutrient value degrades? If so, I believe it does a little bit. I am not sure if their enzymes die off or anything though. But so many people buy frozen and also freeze their own. So I would say its fine.
