I just decided today for the rest of this week, I will only eat raw foods. Eating a raw food diet is vey beneficial to your body. According to The Best of Raw Food website, when your diet consist of more than 75% raw foods, these are some of the improvements likely to happen to you.
Raw plant foods are rich in oxidizing, alkalinizing chlorophyll. Live foods contain a specific balance of natural forces. Plant foods like vegetables, fruits, sprouted legumes, and nuts have a collection of proteins, enzymes, minerals, and vitamins found within them. But, what is raw foods? According to The Best of Raw Food, it consist of raw foods that hasn’t been cooked or heated above 42 C/118 F degrees and preferably:
Unprocessed – as fresh (or wild) as possible
Organic – no irradiation, preservatives, pesticides or GMO.
So to kick off my three day raw diet, I started my morning with a fresh organic juice. It had carrots, kale, oranges, ginger and a lemon. Most of these items came from my local farmers market. Please go out a support your local farm.
Now raspberries are in season. I was able to get a small batch of blueberries last weekend, so I had some of that for breakfast. My lunch will be a fresh garden salad jazzed up with some raw nuts.
In between my meals, I’ll drink white/green organic teas, fresh juices and my lemon water.

Good luck with it – my sister did it for 5 days last week and said she felt amazing after it! I will try it sometime soon 🙂
Thanks! So far, its going good! I’ve been eating a lot of fruits, nuts and raw vegetables. I feel great! My lower GI track is very happy.
I’ve been eating Paleo style (the “caveman” diet) for a couple of weeks (all the fresh fruit, vegetables and meat you can handle). After a coupe of sluggish days I feel great now — and have dropped about 10 pounds — end have not felt hungry a single time.
My nephew did that for a while and lost a lot too. Plus, he’s a cyclist now. He’s funny! Every where he goes he’s on his bike. I’m not a fan of the Paleo diet. I don’t agree with the protein from animals. What you should try is a whole food plant base diet. No dairy and animal protein! You’ll feel amazing and your body will naturally detox itself.
Sorry, I am an endurance athlete and really do need animal protein for best performance.
I respect that!
