Is a Raw Food Diet Radical?
There are so many doctors, nutritionists, dietitians, and health hobbyists and lobbyists out there that bash the raw food diet and its promoters. They say that a raw food diet isn’t balanced, is lacking nutrients, results in fanaticism…
Ultimately, they conclude that a raw diet is a radical approach to health.
Since I know you’re just *dying* to know, here is what I think. 🙂
Everyone knows the health benefits of fruits and veggies
We have all been told since childhood the importance of fruits and vegetables in a balanced diet. Our parents did everything they could to get us to eat our fruits and veggies.
Chips were replaced with apples and PB in our lunch boxes. Broccoli was smothered in yellow cheese sauce. Berries were stuck between layers of graham cracker and whipped cream.
If you asked a random person off the street what the healthiest foods are, 90% of them would say fruits and vegetables.
Try this: go to Google and search “healthy food.” Click the image tab. Almost *every* picture on the first page showcases fruits and vegetables!
And what about commercials? There’s the “5-a-day” ads. The Ocean Spray cranberry juice ads. All the different foods promoting their “one serving of fruit/vegetables.” And we can’t forget the ever-popular “should have had a V8” ads.
So what’s the big deal?!?
If the vast majority agrees that fruits and vegetables are the healthiest foods for us humans, is the idea of eating them exclusively such a leap? I don’t think so.
But then again, I’m biased.
Think of it this way: if you knew the absolute *best* way to clean your carpet, would you give any other method the time of day? Of course not!
If you have the best, forget the rest!
Do you want to know what IS radical about a raw food diet?
The results! The amazing benefits you can experience from going raw are just that…amazing! Here are a few that I can attest to…
Better mental focus
No more muscle cramps!
Loss of joint pain
Much more energy
Deeper, restful sleep
Reduction in daily hair loss
Softer, smoother skin
Less chance of burning from sun exposure
No more stinky sweat!
I could go on and on, but I won’t bore you any longer.
My point is that the results speak for themselves. If you doubt the validity of a raw vegan diet or think that it is *too radical*, just give it a try! Make the effort for a good 30 days and see what raw foods can do for you.
I guarantee you will see results quicker than you could have ever imagined.
