October 10, 2008, Newsletter Issue #120: Raw Food Diet Benefits

Tip of the Week

A raw food diet is used by some to detox and by others to improve their health. A raw food diet is based on uncooked and unprocessed foods. Raw food diets have been proven to create major improvements in the health of some people. Raw food diet benefits include improved energy, reduced risk of heart disease, improved skin appearance and weight normalization. Raw food diets also benefit the digestive system. When eating a raw food diet, donít mix it with cooked foods. Adding cooked foods to a raw food diet is not a good idea because cooked foods create acid in the stomach which does not react well to raw foods. Some popular raw foods include fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, grains, beans, nuts, dried fruit and seaweed. When you purchase raw foods it is best to choose ones that are organic. Conventional raw foods have been found to be very high in pesticides and other toxins. When planning your raw food diet eat fruits in the morning and vegetables in the evening. Donít forget to add in some sprouts. While sprouts do take a little more work than just grabbing something and eating it, they are an essential part of a raw food diet. In addition to sprouting, raw foods can be processed by juicing, soaking to soften items like nuts or beans, blending and dehydrating. If you are used to a meat diet you may experience mild headaches, nausea and food cravings for the first few days of your raw food diet.
