You’ve likely heard of the uncooked, plant-based diet, hence being the reason why you are reading this article today. Even though it sounds interesting to you, you are still likely asking the following questions: Why should I go raw? Why should I eat raw food? What health benefits will I receive personally? The following points highlight the best of the many benefits of this healthy lifestyle: weight loss, increased energy and skin healing.
Weight loss is the most valued health benefit of the raw food diet. Since you will be ditching all junk, processed calorie-laden foods, this benefit is quite self-explanatory. Another obvious reason why it is so easy to lose weight on this diet is because living, plant-based foods are naturally low in calories, therefore making it difficult for you to pack on the kilos. One famous lady who achieved weight loss on the raw food diet was Angela Stokes. She actually lost over 70 kilos on this lifestyle.
Many athletes are choosing a diet high in uncooked foods nowadays since the obvious energy content that raw food offers is outstanding! So many people state that after going on this lifestyle, they no longer get tired during the day, and they actually can perform more tasks than usual with their bodies fuelled on raw plant-based foods! That’s why it’s so common for people to munch on a banana before they hit the gym – for a quick energy boost to keep them going during their workout. It’s because fruit, particularly bananas, contains natural energy that is healthy and reliable.
A similar reason to weight loss; cutting out all processed, fatty, sugary foods from one’s diet will evidently result in a healthier, glowing complexion. Psoriasis, eczema and acne have been known to improve drastically (or clear up completely!) on the raw food diet due to the massive amount of minerals, vitamins and nutrients that this diet has to offer. When food is cooked- most of its enzymes are destroyed through the heating process. But when consumed in its natural raw form – the enzymes are rampant! The quality of our skin relies heavily on what we consume, hence the popular saying ‘You are what you eat.’ When we feed our skin nutrient-dense enzyme-rich foods – our skin will thank us! This makes me think of Joy Houston’s experience on this healthy diet – her embarrassing adult acne cleared up quickly!
These are the three most enjoyed benefits of the raw food lifestyle. So you asked ‘Why should I go raw?’ ‘Why should I eat raw food?’ Easy! You will experience intense weight loss, amazing energy, and a facial detoxification like no other – with your acne vanished! Hey, if normal people like Angela and Joy have experienced such amazing benefits on the raw food lifestyle – then why would you be any different? Trust me – you can also reap the many benefits that this healthy lifestyle has to offer! Whether it be weight loss, increased energy, or a clear complexion – this lifestyle may be the answer to what you have been looking for!
