Raw Food Weight Loss

Quite often foods are cooked with some quantity of fats which are not easily digested. Even if no fats are added while cooking the food, the essential nutrients and live elements in the food such as vitamins, minerals, enzymes and proteins are destroyed while cooking and leave toxic waste that can convert into obesity and other health issues. According to the Farmers Magazine, the surest way to add weight is to eat cooked grains, vegetables such as cooked potatoes--- French fries are probably the mainstay of most of the restaurants. The best way to stop these harmful accretions in the body and reduce the weight is to eat raw and live food which is easily digested and becomes a source of energy.

Raw Foods Accelerate the Weight Loss

Raw foods especially juices like cantaloupe juice, blueberry juice or strawberry juice mixed with apple, pear or yam are not only delicious but full of energy. A combination of carrot, apple, beet, celery, tomato, and lemon tastes like a living V8, giving an energy-boost to the day that is far better than coffee. Foods and vegetables are cleansers, energizers, builders and boosters of immune system. They supply all the enzymes, vitamins and minerals which are essential to boost the vitality. They are rich in fibers and have great laxative value to eliminate the toxins which accumulate in the body. A regular use of juicy and fibrous raw foods is conducive to rapid weight loss. Wild animals are rarely fat because they always eat raw, green and live foods.

Raw vegetables and fruits promote the weight loss because they are low in fat and calories and rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals. They facilitate the elimination of toxic wastes quickly. Moreover they reduce the craving for sweet food items like chocolates and cakes which promote weight gain. Raw foods keep your energy levels steady so that you neither become too hungry or too tired too soon. Raw foods drain away the excess body acids. They satisfy the body's requirement for nutrients with less foods. Therefore the consumers of raw, live and organic foods shed the weight very easily and very soon.

Raw Foods as Energizers

Raw foods are great energizers as they are a tremendous source of bio-available vitamins and minerals as they are the partners of enzymes and co-enzymes. We need not crave for cooked foods to satisfy our hunger or build up our energy.

Enzymes act as catalysts in hundreds and thousands of chemical reactions that take place in the body and play a crucial role in digesting, dissolving and converting the foods into body tissues. They produce energy at the cellular level and are critical for most of the metabolic functions that take place every second in our body throughout the day. If we take raw foods in abundance we receive the required energy, eliminate the toxins which in turn reduce the weight. Obesity after all is another name for accumulated toxins in the body.
