But, there is one rule that is true for all diets:
Focusing on vegetables and fruits guarantees weight loss success. If fresh produce is unavailable, choose frozen but be sure to read labels and avoid added sugar and artificial sweeteners.
Raw Foods must always be your fist choice before cooked foods! There is medical evidence that raw foods promote good health and cooked foods lead to the degenerative diseases and fat accumulation.
Raw foods are great for weight loss not only because you get more life force from them, but also because with their help, your body is more thoroughly hydrated and cleansed.
If your current diet is composed of mostly cooked foods and you suffer from digestive disorders, add raw foods gradually to your diet. Some people might have difficulty with sudden change of the diet.
The simplest way to add raw foods is to alter cooking methods – steam instead of cook. At first steam the veggies until they become soft. Later on, reduce steaming time so that they are eventually firm instead of soft.
Any food prepared at a temperature less than 116 degrees may be considered "raw". So, when cooking, you want to try to get close to this temperature, learn to sauté.
There are many books available at natural food stores on how to prepare tasty raw foods at low temperatures. If you don't want to go for the low temperature cooked foods, learn about weight loss methods like preparing meal replacement smoothies from fresh fruits and vegetables.
The most successful diet plan would include a mix of raw (veggies) and cooked (meats) foods.
It is highly advised to gradually stop consuming refined sugars (candy, cake, etc.) and processed starches (pasta, breads, etc.) because they are the most damaging and obstructive to the body.
Your body is comprised of millions of cells. These cells have been forced to inflate and expand in size to accommodate all the waste you've accumulated from years of poor eating.
Once the harmful foods have been eliminated completely from your diet, the body doesn't have to work on those processed ingredients anymore and immediately starts improving your cellular chemistry.
