One of the many reasons people begin a raw food diet is to slim down. Maybe you have been hitting the gym and you are looking for that little push to drop those last few pounds, or maybe you are stuck at work all day without a way to exercise and you are trying to avoid adding on extra holiday weight. Whatever the case, a raw foods diet can be a great way to compliment an exercise routine for weight loss. The more you fuel your body with nutrients, the more waste it gets rid of and the more efficient it becomes. [Speaking of “waste”, elimination is something that often gets overlooked and can be a key in managing a healthy diet. Most people think it is normal to get rid of “waste” once a day. How many times do you eat or snack a day? Where do you think all the rest of those meals are being stored? Raw food speeds up the process of eliminating waste.]
In addition to weight loss, a benefit from eating raw is increasing your mental health. As your cells become healthier, you will feel your memory sharpen and your concentration improve. A raw diet may also give you peace of mind knowing that your body is functioning at its absolute best and highest potential. Free to subscribe to Bella Petite Magazine!
