How to Switch to A Raw Food Diet for Weight LosseBook - 2012
Whether you're taking the plunge and switching to a new, raw food lifestyle or just want to detox and de-bloat after a period of overindulgence, the raw food diet can be a very effective tool in recharging the body. Raw foodies, or Rawists, believe that cooking food kills the naturally occurring enzymes we need for proper digestion and nutrients, and that a continual lack in these enzymes can lead to weight gain, accelerated aging, digestive problems and peptic deficiencies. It's a common misconception that rawists only consume cold food since they don't cook, however, the diet maintains that is acceptable to heat food to 104 to 118 degrees Fahrenheit without harming any valuable nutrients or creating any acidic or carcinogenic compounds within the food. Rawists believe that your body functions almost like an alkaline battery, relying on the proper flow of electrons to function properly. What we contribute to that flow can either add electrons and alkalize the system or steal electrons, leading to an acidic buildup that rusts or decays the system.
