There are so many useful nutrients in fruits, veggies, seeds, and so on, it’s a shame to let that nutrition dissipate by cooking it. Get a few tips on going raw!

There is no tool for transformation that can rival the immediate effects a raw, plant-based lifestyle instills upon someone. No audiotape, no seminar, no supplement, no herb, nothing even comes close. I have personally witnessed more lives changed for the better from adopting the basics of this lifestyle than I have in my fifteen-plus years of being involved in the personal development industry. The benefits of applying a high raw plant diet alone are astronomical.

Going Raw

With all of that said, there are grounded guidelines each person needs to maximize the benefits they stand to gain from this lifestyle. Each person is unique in their constitution and, depending on their circumstances, will require a different adjustment of food options. More than one road leads to the raw food lifestyle, and you do not have to be 100% to attain profound benefits.

If you’re coming from a cooked food diet, even a cooked vegan diet, there can be an adjustment period before your body is able to fully adapt to larger volumes of raw foods. This transition period is different for each person, but here are a few general tips to help the process run a little more smoothly.

3 Great Tips

This will help hydrate the cells of the body, thereby promoting ease of tension, anxiety, and weight loss, improvement of mental clarity, anti-inflammation, and better circulation.

Adjust your fatty foods to raw plant fats such as avocados, olives, coconut products, durian fruit, cold pressed plant oils, and soaked or sprouted nuts.

Finally, it is key to teach your body to stabilize blood sugar and tissue regeneration from plant proteins such as hemp seeds, ground flax seeds, chia seeds, green leafy vegetables, spirulina, chlorella, maca, and so on.

The Result of Raw

Once your body fully acclimates to raw plant nutrition you will gain mastery over your metabolism. This is the key to long term health. Raw foods teach our bodies what they truly need by clearing out the nonessentials and making room for higher quality foods that support all functions of the body.

Consider this excerpt from my upcoming book, The Inner Alchemy Youthening Program:

Seeds are more balanced in their fat to protein ratios, specifically hemp seeds, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, and chia seeds. We are designed more for seed consumption than nut consumption. Our jaw bone structure is designed to grind seeds and nuts but seeds are easier to consume in higher caloric amounts without digestive irritation, as nuts in high amounts can cause. In order to balance a 100% raw diet diversity of fat-protein-carbohydrate foods are essential. Green leafy vegetables are the great equalizer and help to neutralize the acid based minerals that can excessively throw one's body type out of balance. A high raw diet can be balanced out by incorporating sweet potatoes, yams, steamed broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, spinach, and semi-grains such as black rice, wild rice, and quinoa.”
