The book entitled The Raw Food Detox Diet: The Five-Step Plan for Vibrant Health and Maximum Weight Loss, was written by Natalia Rose, who is a nutritionist who believes in a raw food diet in order to achieve weight loss while improving the individual’s overall health. The focus of the book is that consuming raw food can allow people to improve some of their health struggles while appearing more youthful. In it, Rose also claims that raw food consumption can allow a body to shed years of built-up chemicals and pollution through detoxification.
Though Rose is an advocate of a raw foods, she does not encourage the consumption of soy and foods that are soy-based. In fact, she claims that foods containing soy are among the worst kinds of foods that could be eaten. Instead, she simply encourages the readers of the book to – while avoiding foods containing soy – to eat as much raw food as they possibly can. Though the book does acknowledge that not everyone will find it easy to eat a primarily raw food diet, it does an effective job at illustrating the health benefits and weight loss potential that a diet consisting mostly of raw foods can provide. Moreover, it gives thorough attention to the truth behind many myths that are commonly associated with raw foods and eating a raw food diet. For example, it is frequently, but wrongly believed that this type of diet requires a person to spend a significant amount of time soaking, sprouting, and dehydrating foods.
Many followers of what Rose has outlined in The Raw Food Detox Diet enjoy the fact that there is very little attention given to calories or fat consumption. In fact, Rose explains in the book that as long as highly nutritious, healthy foods are eaten, then it is rare for a person to be inclined to overeat, as the body’s needs will be satisfied, so cravings and unnecessary hunger will not persist.
That said, eating a raw food diet according to the instructions provided in The Raw Food Detox Diet, can be rather time consuming, between the more meticulous grocery shopping and the amount of preparation that is necessary – even when the foods needn’t be cooked. Many people also struggle with having to take a vegetarian or vegan approach, as meat is not permitted in this diet.
