highres_151361.jpegWhen you read about raw food, it's often referred to as the 'raw food diet'. But is it really?

No, it's not a diet. Diets are something you normally do for a short period to lose weight, and often have a set of steps or rules to follow during that time. In most every case, the diet doesn't work and the weight or condition you were trying to get rid of returns.

Why?

Because the diet, however good it may be, did not become a lifestyle. The very idea of a diet is something you do for a limited time.

Eating vegan, fresh and organic raw food is a lifestyle. It's a transition towards better health, more energy, overcoming disease and releasing weight... among other benefits. The important distinction is that it's not something you do for a few weeks or months and then go back to your previous eating and living habits. It's a series of simple lifestyle changes, modifying your current habits and routines and replacing them with ones that support your goals of better health.

Temporary changes won't bring permanent results.

Of course, increasing the amount of raw foods in your diet, regardless of the amount, will bring benefits. And as you get closer to eating 100% raw, you gain more benefits.

And the raw food lifestyle is also more than just food. It's a combination of what you eat, how you think, how you move and what you do. Once you remove the toxins your body has accumulated from years of processed foods and poisons, you start looking at life differently, in a more holistic way. Things are clearer. You see how everything you do affects your life, those around you and the world. You find more fulfillment, peace, joy, love, an ability to accomplish what you set your mind to and much more.

If you want temporary results, I recommend a diet.

If you're looking to change your life, I recommend the raw food lifestyle.

To your best health!
