Raw Food Diet

Draw Backs Of Living Raw Food Diet

There are relatively few draw backs with a living food diet, however, it is important to bear these in mind.

One of the main drawbacks with a living food menu is the high pesticide content raw vegetables hold, most of which would ordinarily be lost through cooking.

Following a raw food menu therefore exposes you to increased intake of pesticide. For women who are merely following a temporary raw food diet detox regime this might not present a major issue.

However, if you are planning on long term use of living raw food you will need to think about how you are going to manage this issue.

The alternative of course is to base your raw or live food diet around natural and organically grown foods which do not rely on the use of pesticides. This option may well carry cost implications since organic foods tend to be slightly more expensive.

One option would be to grow your own. You will find that a large percentage of raw food meals consist of nuts, beans, seeds which you sprout yourself any way.

An excellent alternative to growing all your own raw food is to source a high quality online raw food store. Some even offer an excellent selection of dried raw fruit and vegetables, including personal care items.

As with any diet, you will need to ensure an adequate intake of Vitamin And Mineral Supplements to safeguard raw food health.

People on low calorie and vegetarian, and especially those on raw food diets, will need to further supplement their diet with Vitamin B12, - usually found in meat.

Following a raw or living food diet may well be a necessity rather than a lifestyle choice. In any event, you can feed your motivation by being creative and experimenting with a variety of living food recipes - you might be pleasantly surprised to find that raw food is not as bland as you might imagine.
