There are a number of different types of weight loss plans that we could be trying right now. Some of them are so off the wall that we wonder why people would even bother trying. Some, like Weight Watchers, are really great – but they are so expensive that we cannot imagine trying to go every week and work out that much at a specific place.
That is when you need to do something even more drastic and start a diet that is not only good for the body – but also for the soul. The fact that it is easy on the wallet doesn’t hurt either. This new diet that people are going absolutely nuts over is called the raw food diet.
How it sounds is exactly what it is. The only thing that you will not be eating is meat. after all who wants to chow down on raw beef and fish? That is not fun. Instead you will be munching on fruits and veggies that are not cooked on anything that is over 150 degrees Fahrenheit.
This means that your body is getting all of the vitamins and nutrients that it needs to stay healthy and to help lose the fat. You will be getting everything you need and a balanced diet. You worried about the protein? Don’t worry because there are a number of fruits and veggies that have plenty of it and that you will be able to add to your diet.
Other things that you will be able to eat are seeds and nuts. These are great for snacking and they are also filler foods that will help you to feel full for a longer period of time. Just make sure that you ease yourself into it because it can be a rather difficult diet if you have never done it before.
Remember that you are going to be taking out foods that you love and are so used to eating. The cravings that first hit you are going to be hard. You need to switch out each meal slowly until you are completely on nothing – but what the raw food diet requires you to eat.
