Eating raw food systematically

Does It Work?

You’ll probably lose weight on this diet, since many raw foods are low in calories, fat, and sodium, and high in fiber. One study found that a raw foods diet worked for weight loss.

You’ll also get nutritional perks. Most of what you eat are plant based foods that are high in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and phytochemicals. And it’s true that cooking can zap some water soluble vitamins like vitamins B and C. Eating lots of veggies and fruits is good for you. Find more good raw food diet tips here.

But there are drawbacks. You have to make sure you’re getting enough protein, iron, calcium, and other vitamins and minerals like B12. Because most people who eat raw foods exclude animal products, you may need to take vitamin supplements to make up for any gaps in your diet.

Plus, cooking isn’t all bad. It boosts some nutrients, like beta-carotene and lycopene. It also kills bacteria, which helps you avoid food poisoning. Some foods can only be eaten if they are cooked. And there’s no scientific proof that eating only raw foods prevents illness.

What You Can Eat and What You Can’t

Think uncooked, unprocessed, mostly organic foods. Your staples: raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and sprouted grains. Some eat unpasteurized dairy foods, raw eggs, meat, and fish and there are some potential health risks associated with doing this.

Your food can be cold or even a little bit warm, as long as it doesn’t go above 118 degrees.

You can use blenders, food processors, and dehydrators to prepare foods.


Raw shrimp-

Preparing the Shrimp

•    Obtain Amaebi, a sashimi breed of shrimp, from a local fish market or other specialty grocer. Slice the underside of the shrimp from the head down to the fanned part of the tail. Also do this between the legs down the center of the shell.
•    Rinse the raw shrimp clean with cool water and a vegetable brush.
•    Drop the sliced shrimp into a glass bowl. Leave the heads, legs and shells intact after slicing them.
•    Pour on the lime juice and add the cilantro and dill herb.
•    Cover the bowl with cling wrap and refrigerate it for 24 to 48 hours. The citric acid in the lime juice “cooks,” the meat of the shrimp, making it safe for consumption, and delicious as well. Don’t forget to check this article.

Eating the Shrimp

•    Grasp the head of the shrimp between your thumb and forefinger on one hand. Grasp near the fanned part of the tail with the other hand.
•    Pull your hands apart, removing the head from the shrimp. The tender, pink meat of the shrimp should slide out of the shell with ease.
•    Dip the meat of the shrimp into your choice of sauce, such as wasabi, soy or another blend. Place the entire piece of shrimp into your mouth to enjoy the sweet flavors of the raw Amaebi.
