Don’t Go Raw Too Fast!

26 06 2009
Depending on what you read, you’ll get different advice on how quickly you should transition to an all raw food diet.  This is not a haphazard decision.  Several things must be in place to make this change. Not the least of which is the right attitude.

I suggest a gradual shift from a cooked food diet to a raw food diet.  I don’t believe in going completely raw for myself.  You may have a different feeling on this, and that’s ok for YOU.

Going raw too fast leads to several ailments that are usually attributed to detox symptoms.  Remember what is happening to your body at a cellular level as you eat different types of foods.  Raw foods contain the enzymes your body needs to process and digest them.  Cooking foods destroys these enzymes forcing your body to work harder producing the enzymes to digest them.

Another function of raw food is the cleansing of cells.  Your cells readily pass their waste into your bloodstream and lymphatic system once introduced to the enzymes in raw foods. This waste has to go somewhere.  Your bowel movements do a good job of removing waste, but if you go all raw too fast, the waste can build up causing your body to react in strange ways.  Some symptoms of raw food detox include headache, acne, pain, loss of appetite, diarrhea, and constipation.  To relive these symptoms simply introduce a little cooked food or more liquids when you are not eating.

Switching to a raw food diet offers many benefits, don’t introduce unnecessary problems by going raw too fast.
