By Jenny The most natural and healthful way to make sure our bodies are getting all of the nutrients we need, is to enjoy a mostly raw food diet. A live food nutrition plan (or simply increasing the amounts of raw foods you eat on a daily basis) will not only help. One achieves natural weight loss, but it will also improve natural energy (no energy drinks or caffeine needed). As well as provides more oxygen for cells to function properly helping to prevent many diseases and cancers. So enjoy your raw foods, but don’t be afraid of having cooked foods as well.

Another component of this type of eating is to eliminate all processed foods from your diet.

Dehydrated fruits and veggies are a staple of most raw food nutrition plans. Doing it yourself keeps your foods natural and healthy without a lot of unnecessary, vitamin-killing additives.

The foods that make up the bulk of this kind of diet include fresh vegetables. Fresh fruits, raw nuts, raw seeds, raw grains, dried fruit, fresh fruit juices, and purified water.

Why Should You Increase The Raw Foods In Your Diet?

This may sound suspiciously like a vegetarian diet, because at its core, it is. Vegetarian diets promote enjoying foods in their most natural state while eliminating most if not all animal products.

Most raw food chefs suggest heating foods to 116 degrees and no higher. The more heat used the more digestion-aiding enzymes are destroyed from the foods. Good digestion is imperative to the absorption of vitamins and nutrients that our meals provide for us.

A natural increase in energy, glowing skin, natural weight loss and maintenance, better digestion. A steady metabolism, better joint mobility. And a reduced risk of diseases such as cancers, diabetes, heart disease and hypertension.

Raw food plans are the perfect way to rid your body of the additives. And chemicals found in most foods today.

A healthy detox plan with live foods will not only make sure you don’t go hungry. But it is very low in sodium and saturated fats while providing your with high levels of magnesium, potassium and fiber.

There is an unlimited variety of meals to enjoy on this sort of diet plan. Whether you decide to have more of your meals juiced, dehydrated or “natural”. Any combination of these healthy nutrient dense foods will help to cleanse the colon, kidney, liver, and skin!

Raw Food Diet Plan Basics

I wasn’t kidding when I said this sort of eating plan offers endless variety. You will enjoy fresh fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, legumes, seeds, grains, almond or coconut milk and so much more. Did you know that

– sprouted brown rice slows down glucose absorption and helps to improve metabolism.

-we all know carrots are a great source of vitamin A as well as encouraging healthy vision but did you know that carrots also help promote a healthy cardio-vascular system Spouting isn’t nearly as hard as it sounds. You can easily find a sprouter for your seeds, grains and beans.

You can enjoy spouts in soups, salads, juiced or as a snack.

Studies have shown fennel to help control the painful inflammation of arthritis, control mood fluctuation and even helps to alleviate depression. Fennel also contains a rare yet necessary nutrient called manganese along with vitamin B complex and zinc.

There are even gadgets on the market that lets make your own soy milk from beans, seeds, grains, rice and nuts. You can even make your own tofu which goes wonderfully in soups and salads as well as smoothies!

Many people enjoy raw soups, but remember, it is perfectly o.k. to enjoy some cooked foods on this nutrition plan. Getting 70% of your nutrition from natural raw sources is perfect. So if you want your soups hot, heat them up. If you want to try your soups raw but don’t like the idea of cold soups, heat them up to 116 degrees. This will allow your raw soup to be warm to the tummy without losing any of its nutritional value.

A Word of Caution

It is always a wise idea to check with your physician before beginning any sort of diet plan. Even though eating natural foods in their most natural state is a very healthy way to eat, everyone is different.

In Closing

A raw food, live food, natural food or vegetarian diet is the best way to improve your wellbeing, emotional state and health naturally.

Start by replacing one meal a day with a raw food meal. Believe me, it takes time to break ourselves of the nutrient-lacking, high-processed eating habits we have developed.

Buy one item at a time and get comfortable using it to prepare your live food meals and snacks. Don’t feel as if you need to completely restock y our kitchen right out of the gate.
