Yes we know a 100% raw vegan diet can be a very healing diet and we know you can lose a lot of weight very fast on this diet. It is a fabulous lifestyle to prevent disease and to increase anti-aging and longevity.
But for many of us it just doesn’t work to do it long-term. Some people become deficient, crave other foods, start to look old, and experience various physical problems from B12 and mineral deficiencies to adrenal fatigue and hair and tooth loss to mental illness.
How can we enjoy the incredible benefits of a raw food diet without risking undesirable side effects?
Is the answer in eating superfoods, avoiding superfoods, eliminating certain foods, food groups or macronutrients, eating the right percentage of macronutrients, eating the right supplements, avoiding supplements, eating fresh whole foods, eating a balanced and varied raw diet, or is it something else?
Well I’m experimenting with a cooked / raw integration. It hasn’t been easy, but it’s getting better. If I can get it to work as well as a raw diet for myself I will let you know! If I can’t, I’ll be going back to the drawing board and attempting again to optimize a raw diet that can work for me in the long-term. Another thought I’ve had is to go back-and-forth between an optimized raw vegan diet and a healthy cooked diet to get the best of both worlds.
But for now, the best diet I know for rapid yet sustainable, healthy weight release and overall health and wellbeing is still the 100% fresh, raw, balanced diet outlined, detailed and demonstrated in The 21 Day Raw Cleanse and the 28 Days Raw Program.
