Publisher description for Raw Food Diet
The raw food diet weight loss program is based on the consumption of unprocessed and uncooked foods, preferably organic, whole plant-based foods. Staples of the raw food diet include: *fresh fruits and vegetables *seeds *Nuts *seaweed *legumes *Grains *dried fruits *purified water *fresh Fruit juices *milk from young coconut Foods are not cooked because it is believed that raw (living) foods have more essential Enzymes that help the digestive process. Cooking, on the other hand, is believed to destroy these enzymes. The only cooking allowed in raw food diets is done through a dehydrator, a special machine that blows hot air through food, without ever reaching a temperature of more than 116 degrees Fahrenheit. In the raw food diet, food is generally prepared from scratch through blending, chopping and juicing; a food processor is also often used to prepare meals.
