Eating Raw Foods Is Easy And Effective

Eating raw foods as only part of your diet will never yield the benefits of a full, or high raw diet, but raw foods in any proportion can make a major nutritional difference. Raw fruits and vegetables yield up a full compliment of vitamins and minerals like nothing else can.

Cooked foods, including cooked fruits and vegetables, are nutritionally deficient becuase their vitamins, minerals, enzymes, coenzymes, proteins, and fats are damaged by the heat that cooks them.

What remains is the calories, so we get the maximum amount of calories with a compromised nutritional package. This food cannot sustain us in health without at least some raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, and the more the better.

Read about a healthy raw food diet and what foods to eat here.

The Benefits Of Raw Foods

Eating Raw Foods SaladPeople who eat raw diets overcome  numerous diseases  easily without pills or doctors. I escaped colitis myself, and lost a lot of weight.

Most rediscover the energy they haven't had since childhood, and operate with new levels of mental clarity.

For more about the benefits, read this article.

Let's Talk Proportions

It's pretty simple: Eating more raw foods is better than eating less. The higher the total percentage of calories you get from them, the better off you'll be.

The average Standard American Diet eater doesn't eat much raw food, and unsurprisingly, the majority die young of preventable diseases. The more nutrient punch you can bring to bear on your life, the more you'll thrive. The less cooked, fatty, denatured food you eat, the less you'll suffer from ill health.

Eating Raw Foods SmoothieIf you're not willing to start a full raw food diet yet, I would suggest a diet that is at least 70 percent raw calorically. Over time, you'll likely start to feel that the cooked food you eat is bringing you down and continuously decrease the amount you eat.

Eating raw foods can only be beneficial.

When people consume raw foods for much of their diet, the rest starts to look lackluster and make them feel poorly.
