It’s sort of a ‘no brainer’ that adding fresh and raw foods contributes to better health. Processed foods can contain higher sodium, fat, and additives that may be harmful to your health. For many people eating raw food is a completely new concept, but people have been doing it for years. In fact, many cities across the country have a raw food restaurant now, and some restaurants even serves a raw dish or two. Also, one can find more raw diet info in book stores and online.
So what is considered a raw food diet? Basically, it is based on fresh fruits and vegetables accompanied by nuts, seeds and sea vegetables. Freshness is key, with minimal or no processing. A few studies do support the belief that cooking vegetables tends to kill important nutrients.
Many people seek out a raw diet with the hopes of finally getting some relief from health conditions that haven’t been helped by other diets or healing modalities. In addition, some people want to lose weight and keep it off permanently, while others just want to take their health to the next level.
One Raw food enthusiast states:
“Now my eyesight is perfect, I’ve regrown most of my hair, I’ve lost 60 pounds, I feel energetic all day and every day and my ulcers are completely gone,”
