Raw food provides all the nutrients that a body requires. Also, raw food is easier to digest than cooked or processed foods and so raw food is almost entirely usable by the body. As raw foods begin to make up a greater percentage of your diet, you will find that you have more energy on less food.
Some experts say that a raw diet can also help stop, or even reverse, chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer. Cooking creates free radicals, a major cause of cancer. A raw diet means consuming fewer free radicals, reducing your risk of cancer.
A raw food diet is one where the foods have not been heated above a certain temperature, ranging from as low as 92ºF to 118°F (33°C to 48°C).
A living raw food diet takes it a step further. Living Foods contain enzymes which help the digestive process. These enzymes are killed by cooking, which also changes the molecular structure of the food. Living foods not only have higher nutrient values they promote the digestion of the food itself, so you get more from your food.
