Everyone is trying to stay young and healthy. By choosing a raw diet you can not only treat your body healthy by giving all organic and locally grown foods, but, this also plays a part in the aging process. Eating right will not only help you to stay feeling young and healthy but it will also keep your skin looking young as well.
Raw foods put the nutrients back in our bodies that we lose from cooking all of the meat and poultry that our daily diet consists of. Doctors believe that all of the chemicals we put into our body are toxins that are causing pollution in our blood stream.
By maintaining the type of diet that this nation currently has is causing symptoms like migraine headaches, gas, allergy’s and just every day aches and pains. Most people have found that by switching to a raw diet, these and many other symptoms seem to magically disappear. The reason for this is that a raw food diet is removing the toxins that you have put in your body from the unhealthy eating habits you had over the years.
You may have to improvise on certain foods for example, if you have a food allergy to gluten than you may have to go with whole rice instead of whole wheat bread. Even though this is just a minor adjustment to the diet, who cares? We make major adjustments to our lives on a daily basis.
A raw diet is said to have many good qualities such as a better lifestyle, healthier eating habits and longevity. While on this diet you will eat very little to no meat at all, especially red meat. Foods such as lamb, beef and pork are not to be eaten while on this diet. Although you may have seen diets such as Atkins that promotes these meats as being the staple of your diet, it is actually unhealthy for you.
Too much red meat can cause your arteries to clog which of course can lead to a heart attack and a multitude of other health issues. When starting this diet, it can be an extreme lifestyle change for some people and that can be very difficult. Even though some change is good we all know that change can be hard.
With this diet you have the opportunity to re-train your brain to like other foods such as squash, asparagus and maybe even okra. It is not to say that you do not have these foods as part of your daily regimen now but they will become the staple of your daily menu once you switch over to a raw diet.
Want to live longer, feel better, be healthier, and switch to a raw diet. If anything, you need to cut back on the meat you have on a daily basis and add more veggies to your plate. Your plate will look colorful and inviting which will have you enjoying the food that you are eating. It may even taste better that you could have possibly imagined.
