Benefits of Eating Foods Raw

Everyone has experienced going on a long road trip and stopping at a fast food restaurant.  The smells of fried chicken, French fries, and hamburgers waft through the air.  One could hardly wait to get his share of a juicy chicken leg or hot fries.  But how nutritious or healthy is this kind of diet?  One cannot eat these foods raw, but nutritionists are advocating that we would be healthier and slimmer if we eat most of our foods in a raw state.

We can eat fruit, nuts, grains, and vegetables raw.  They taste good, and can be easily eaten. There is no need to add salt, sugar, spices or condiments that can irritate the digestive system or over stimulate other organs. Also, natural foods or raw foods also contain sun energy in the cellulose, which Is broken down when exposed to high temperatures if cooked. The heat of cooking depletes vitamins, damages proteins and fats, and destroys enzymes which benefit digestion.

Eating foods raw gives energy, helps in weight control, and reduces the risk of heart disease. Raw food contains fewer trans fats and saturated fats than cooked foods.  A raw food diet is low in sodium and high in potassium, magnesium, foliate, fiber and health promoting plant chemicals called phytochemicals.  A study found that eating foods raw lowered plasma total cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations. 

It is also believed that eating foods raw can protect the body from acute diseases, such as colds and flu, and can reverse or stop the advance of many chronic diseases, including heart disease and cancer.  Fruits, nuts, and vegetables are overflowing with life and can transmit their life benefits directly to you.  Above all, eating foods raw saves you money on food, pots and pans, appliances, doctor bills, drugs, and health insurance. So, try to eat most of your foods in their raw state.
