With all the attention raw food celebrities are getting for their healthy glow and toned bodies, many people are asking the question “What is the raw food diet?”. It’s much different than you might think. You won’t be living on carrot sticks and sushi. What you will be living is life at a whole new level. How can that be? Because you have probably been exposed to these foods your whole life:
* processed sugars
* refined flours
* hydrogenated oils
* meat, dairy and eggs tainted with hormones, antibiotics, and pesticides
* food dyes
* cooked food toxins
The raw foods diet is about stepping off the roller coaster these foods put our bodies on. It is an opportunity to see how you look and feel without these highly processed foods. Give your body a vacation from dealing with these taxing foods and it will have time to heal itself. That healing can take many forms, but the most common is loosing fats,especially around the mid section, thighs and bottom. Why?
Because fat is a safe place to store acids and toxins that build up from eating the Standard American Diet. When you stop eating that way, your body doesn’t have toxins to store. It even has time to break down the existing toxins stored in that fat. And guess what, when the toxins are broken down the body doesn’t NEED fat as a safe storage place. Being magically wise, the body lets that unneeded fat go!
What would your body look like if you gave your it a break from processed foods? Glowing skin? Shinny Hair? Could you see those abs at last?
How would your moods be different without exposure to the hormones in animal products? Is it depression, PMS, or ADD? Or does the potpourri of antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, dyes, flavorings and preservatives affect these conditions in ways we cannot yet understand?
