Determining Good Conditioning With A Raw Food Diet

By Russell James

When a person goes on a Raw Food Diet they are eating foods that are uncooked or unprocessed. There are three different versions of this diet and many believe that this has many more healthier benefits than the foods one has in a standard diet. There have been many different studies made and there are pros and cons regarding its use.

Some people, adapting this life style, eat only vegetables, fruits, nuts, seaweed and other things of this type. Others will include eggs, raw milk, raw milk cheese and yogurt. It is well known that fruits and vegetables are good for weight loss as well as other health advantages, such as not bringing fat into the body which causes many problems related to one’s well being.

The disadvantage of this kind of diet is that one can develop a deficiency in Vitamin B-12 and other nutrients needed by the body. Also, many people cannot adapt to the rigorous dedication it requires. One will find this kind of diet practiced at certain retreats and health camps where everyone involved is on the same kind of food routine. There are people that this diet is not recommended for, including pregnant women.

There have been a large number of well known books published advocating this kind of diet, stating the many health benefits. These can easily be researched at a library or on an Internet site. Many examples are given of foreign peoples who have used this diet their entire life and benefited from it.

This is a diet that is very hard to maintain if one is used to eating processed food. It takes complete dedication and the ability to divorce oneself from such things as steaks, cakes, drive-in food and other things that are a natural part of everyday life. However, those who have used this diet for quite some time report that they have no problem with this.

Anyone embarking on such a diet for the first time should become acquainted with raw foods and their advantages and disadvantages. For example, some are toxic when eaten raw and can cause severe reactions. This includes such things as certain greens, kidney beans, certain sprouts, rhubarb leaves, and parts of potatoes. Raw foods also contain bacteria and may have parasites which can cause severe illness. For this reason there is a need for them to be handled in specific ways.

Everyone knows that the body must have certain nutrients to keep up one’s strength and allow the organs to work properly. To be successful with this Raw Food Diet, or any type of diet, one should be aware of the benefits of each food that enters the mouth. Before starting such a venture, a research should be done to determine if the body is going to receive all the nutrients it needs. With a careful pre-examination one can determine if this is the diet that will be healthy and one will be able to maintain.
