7 Tips For Changing to a Raw Food Diet
by Sans Anjay
canned foods. A raw food diet, however, means a diet that is devoid of cooked
foods altogether, including most meats and convenience foods. When you are
changing to a raw diet suddenly after having the standard diet for years, it can be
very difficult in the beginning. Here are a few tips to help you make the transition
successfully:

1. Start with fresh fruit juices first. Fruits like apples, peaches, strawberries, and
vegetables like celery, carrot can be used. Juice should be part of the first meal you
have every day.
2. It is not wise to take a big leap; taking gradual steps will help you in giving up your
old food habits and adapting the new diet plan.
3. Nuts are extremely filling and they make you feel comfortable as well. Include lots
of nuts in your diet as you transition to eating more and more raw foods.
4. Do not switch all at once if you think this may be difficult for you. Instead, try
eating raw only one or two meals a day. Do not forget to include lots of salad in your
diet, as this is something that most people are accustomed to eating and will not
seem as hard to transition to as some of the other recipes you will be trying.
5. Have lots of prepared snacks at hand. Instead of pretzels and chips, however, you
should change over to seeds and nuts instead.
6. Get some good books on the benefits of a raw diet to help keep you motivated
and to help answer many of the questions your friends and family will likely have
about your diet.
7. Last but not the least, drink lots of water to keep your system healthy!

By following these seven tips, you should be able to transition more easily and
successfully to your new diet.

ancestral times when cooked food
was not eaten. Over time, people
learned how to cook or burn or roast
food, but many argue that this was
not necessarily a good thing in terms
of our nutritional needs. More and
more people are now changing to
raw food thinking that it might be a
good way to lose weight and eat in a
manner better suited to us naturally.

Our regular diet, also known as the
Standard American Diet, generally
includes items such as bread, dairy,
meat, milk, bottled juices, and
