Three Top Benefits of Raw Food Diet

In my previous post, I gave you an overview of how you can go start with a raw food diet. Not yet convinced to take the challenge to make it the basis of your eating? Read the following indispensable benefits of this kind of diet.

Weight loss - Plant foods have the ability to produce enough fuel that we need to sustain our daily activities. This is because of the omega fatty acids present in them. If they are low in fats and carbohydrates, they are high in enzymes and nutrients compared to other food groups.  Moreover, all the vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and anti-oxidants they contain prevent the secretion of the hunger hormone called gherlin. Because of this phenomenon your desire to eat is lessened as you eat more fruits and vegetables.

Energy boost - When we eat cooked foods, our bodies release metabolic enzymes and energy for their digestion. The presence of starches and transfats would even require the body to expend more of them. On the other hand, Natural foods contain the correct amount of digestive enzymes that allows them to digest themselves when they get into our bodies. Because of this, a relative amount of energy is saved and put into use for other bodily functions.

Clean and healthy body - Raw food diet plan is advised to those who need to have cleaner digestive tract and stronger immune system. This is due to the fact that eating fruits and veggies enhances nutrient utilization and fat elimination.
