Like many other diets, the Raw Vegetable diet guarantees weight loss, and truth be told, you will lose weight on this diet. Also, unlike many other diets, you won't be drowning in water, since vegetables have a high concentration of it. However, there are several warnings that you should be aware of before beginning a Raw Vegetable diet.

Supplements

See your doctor before beginning this diet. Yes, vegetables have a high concentration of vitamins and nutrients, but excluding dairy, meats and grains can have a detrimental effect on your body without supplements to compensate. According to Secrets of a Low Carb Diet, "Your doctor will be able to guide you in the right direction as far as how many vegetables you should be eating and with what concoction of supplements and vitamins you should be taking them with to make sure your body gets the appropriate nutrients."

Lack of Protein

Most vegetables do not contain a high amino acid count. There are exceptions, listed on Weight Loss for All, such as asparagus, spinach, beans, and broccoli to name a few. Your body requires proteins, and without them, it is very likely that minor muscular atrophy will occur. Other side effects, such as feeling dizzy and light headed, can also occur. Ensure that you eat vegetables high in protein to alleviate these effects.

Lack of Fat

Though fat has been demonized, it is a necessary nutrient. As with protein, vegetables are not known for having high amount of fat. Lack of fat can deprive your body's ability to burn body fat, since your body may move into starvation mode and will attempt to store everything. Also, dietary fat helps your skin, brain and heart function. Your doctor will know what to prescribe to keep these ill effects from occurring.

Muscle Loss

The crux of diets calling for caloric intake specifically, or almost entirely, from carbs is they specify weight loss, but not fat loss. A portion of weight loss comes from muscle mass, or good weight. According to Body Building Web, "One study by Dr. Donald Layman at the University of Illinois, had women on high carb low protein diets and high protein low carb diets. Both groups did resistance training for 11 weeks. The high protein dieters lost 22 lbs but only one pound of muscle. The high carb dieters lost only 15 lbs , but also lost 2 lbs of muscle."

Calories

For the low calorie eater, going on a diet of purely vegetables seems like a great idea. However, to reach a healthy calorie intake on a diet such as this will require a lot of eating. You must be prepared to consume pounds of vegetables just to satisfy your body's needs. This can make for awkward social situations, and may be hard at first for those prone to bloating. It is impossible to include what a healthy calorie intake for you would be without known vital information such as: gender, height, weight, and activity level. However, Mayo Clinic Online has just such a calorie calculator, and your doctor should be able to inform you as well.

First off... Congrats on losing the 20 pounds and taking the initiative to get healthy!
You should really cut out dairy if you want to lose weight and be healthy. I've been vegetarian for about 17 years and went vegan about 3.5 years ago and I'll never look back.
Protein might not be the issue, it could be a number of things. I would start really looking into what you eat. I know you have gotten a reply with the suggestion of peanut butter.... I would stay away from peanut butter... even the low fat is very high in fat and if you're trying to lose weight

Ok, so we've heard all of the dogma about how a raw diet "cures" diabetes, allergies, heart disease, epilepsy...you name it someone will say that a raw diet will cure it.
Before you go out and buy a pack of raw chicken wings for your pets, why not educate yourself?
