Studies have shown that over 50% of diseases are caused by the Standard American Diet (SAD). Would you like to start a new diet? Here is a 30 day challenge to change your lifestyle and health. Try the 30 day vegan raw food diet. This diet is absolutely no cooked food for one month. You might be asking yourself ‘Why raw food?’ and ‘What can I expect?’ In this article and the ones to follow, all of your questions will be answer.
To answer the first question why someone should switch to this lifestyle is simple, it’s good for you. When food is cooked over 118 degrees Fahrenheit it loses so much of its nutrients. By the time you add cooking and seasoning you’re only taking in less than 25% of the goodness of food. Taking in account that you've been eating the SAD lifestyle, your digestive system won’t process the 25% percent of nutrients.
Also, eating the SAD lifestyle means you don’t know what you’re eating. The FDA has so many loopholes in what they consider safe to eat. Only 65% of ground beef is needed to be considered safe. Sauces are allowed 30 or more fly eggs per 100 grams. The FDA says peanut butter can have no more than an average of one rodent hair per 100 grams. Is this what you feel conformable eating and feeding your children every day?
If you’re a sane human being you agree that eating what the FDA says is safe, is actually gross and extremely unhealthy. Why not eat 100% percent of a fruit or vegetable instead of 35% mystery meat?
When eating the raw food diet, you’re allowed to eat as much as you want. It’s encouraged to over eat because some people have the idea that they can eat the same amount of food from the SAD lifestyle to this diet. That’s completely backwards.
Eating raw is natural and your body knows exactly what to do when it’s given what is needed.
