Stumble it!

Have you heard of the about documentary film Simply Raw or its companion, Raw For Life?

Simply Raw shows the dramatic effect that eating raw and living foods can have on our health. It highlights how by making simple healthy choices when it comes to our food that we can allow our bodies to heal.

Seeing first hand how making a simple lifestyle choice can help you overcome disease, and in particular diabetes, in less than 30 days is incredibly inspiring!

Some of the comments after watching the movie included:

"I Was Captivated Watching Simply Raw"

"I Was Absolutely Astounded"

"I Believe It To be More Important Than Any Current Information Available Today On Getting Health Back..."

And Raw For Life is like the ultimate encyclopedia for raw food living. It includes interviews, research, nutritional information, philosophy and much more. And there was so much footage left after making Simply Raw it was included to make this companion film as an additional resource for the raw foods lifestyle.

In the spirit of appreciation and gratitude and to help spread this message of health and healing to as many as possible, the filmmakers are making both DVD's available at half off until midnight tonight.

These are must have resources for any health seeker, or as a gift for someone that could use this vital health giving information. They're informative as well as inspiring. And at half off, it's easy to share with those that need it most. Do you know anyone with diabetes or is pre-diabetic? Help yourself and others in your life regain their health. Without health, what do you have? I urge you to check them out today.

Peace!

    hi, i’ve been vegan for about a yr and half now and i want to transistion to either 80% or full raw and i was just wondering if you had some pointers on what you eat on a regular basis?

    Hi Jessica, Thanks for your comment! Sure thing, the basic diet would include fruits mainly for breakfast, fruits and veggies for lunch and fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds for dinner. This is basic and you can mix it up more to your tastes. For example, fruit smoothies, green smoothies or fruit salad for breakfast, fruit or salads for lunch, salads with fruit/nut/seed dressings plus veggies for dinner, etc. There are so many options available that there have been many books written that include more options including the Live Food Factor and the Raw Starter Kit, both I use and recommend. There are also many raw food recipes available at Learn Healthy (raw) Meals as well. All the best on your journey and let us know if we can help!

    Hi Jessica, welcome back! Yes, have read 80-10-10 several times and found it to be one of the few essential resources I would recommend to anyone transitioning to a raw food diet along with Live Food Factor. 80-10-10 provides the basis and reasons why a low fat raw food diet is essential for successfully transitioning and long term success on a raw food diet along with a full 4 season recipe guide. Live Food Factor is probably the most comprehensive resource on raw food living that includes background, research, case studies, recipes and much more. All the best on your transition Jessica and come back and let us know how you’re doing!

    Hi! Me again, lol. So about now I’m on a very high fruit diet not 100% raw yet but still trying, I was just wondering about how many cals you eat a day? In other raw websites that are for low fat high fruit they eat atleAst 3000 a day and I just can’t get myself up to that…can you sustain yourself on less? Thanks :)

    Hi Jessica, nice to hear from you. Congratulations on your progress. Sure thing, the calorie issue is a little controversial, depending on who you listen too :). Yes, some say you need 3000+ calories and some say to restrict, getting fewer calories. Personally I’m similar to you, I have never been able to get to 3000 calories of fruit a day. In fact, even 2000 is very hard for me, being quite active. To be fair, this issue is somewhat misleading because Dr. Graham, the primary force behind 8-1-1 and the notion of the high calorie (primarily fruit based) raw diet says on one hand only athletes that do massive activity should be eating that much and at the same time many who promote 8-1-1 say we need more fruit based calories, at least 2500-3000 a day otherwise we’re restricting calories. Personally I favor my modified 8-1-1 approach of eating significantly less calories, but still high fruit and still 8-1-1 and not worrying about the total calories, just how they’re distributed. And I think that’s the most important part. As long as you’re not hungry at the end of the day or craving something sweet, you’ve had enough fruit calories. If not, you’ll need to up a little until you find what works best for you. It’s important to listen to your body and gauge your intake on hunger, cravings, etc. So the long and short is yes, you can sustain on much less because it’s an individual thing. How much activity you have, your stress level, your level of hydration and many other factors. There is the other side of this theory ‘CRON’ that is featured in Quantum Eating that recommends calorie restriction with high nutrition, and I feel that there are parts of both theories that can work together, and has worked for me for many years now. Hope this helps!

    Hi. I’m now 57 years old and live in Melbourne, Australia where there is a reasonably good selection of vegan outlets. I have been vegan the past 3 years and was vegetarian for about 16 years before that. I’m now thinking about going raw vegan. My main addiction I guess is coffee which I have with soy milk if I go out from work. At home I use oat milk and rice milk. Is there anything in particular I need to be aware of for a person my age? So I’m wondering how I’d go with coffee cravings on the vegan raw food diet. I have also had dental problems most of my life primarily due to misalignment after having braces as a child, and calcium is consequently something I probably need to keep up. Otherwise my health is fine, blood cholesterol levels on the lower side of normal, and generally use alternative therapies in preference to pharmaceuticals.

    Hi Kerry, sure thing, not much you need to be specifically aware of in your situation. I’d recommend lots of greens to start out in addition to the fruit since greens will help you release the cravings after coffee. It may take some time, but as long as you keep the fruit and green intake high, you’ll forget about coffee and crave the sweet fruit and fresh greens more and more. For calcium, just get a good variety of greens in regularly, especially Collard greens, Kale, Bok choy, and Broccoli which are all high in calcium, and occasionally tahini (sesame seeds) and Almonds from the nuts and seeds. When you eat seasonally and include these at times, you’ll normally be getting plenty. Of course, listen to your body and adjust accordingly. All the best and come back any time if we can help! Mark
