Today I want to talk to you about my raw low fat vegan lifestyle. Most of you know that approximately four and a half months ago I started eating a raw food vegan diet. For those of you who aren’t familiar with a raw food vegan diet, it simply means that one only consumes uncooked food and does not consume animal products. No other creature in nature needs to cook its food before consumption so why do we humans cook our food? Gives you something to think about…
The foods that we were designed to eat don’t need to be cooked. Fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds are the foods that our bodies were designed to eat. You don’t need to kill ANYTHING to survive!
I eased myself into this new way of eating because I was feeling fatigued, stressed, and was lacking mental clarity a lot of the time. Deep down I knew that I could feel better and I decided to give this new way of eating a try. Because this way of eating is extreme, I told myself I would try it for one day and see how I felt. Well, like I said above, it’s now been over four months and I have never felt this great in my entire life. I now have such a clear mind and that I have NEVER experienced before in my life without stimulants! This has been a HUGE breakthrough for me! I would HIGHLY recommend this lifestyle to anyone who is looking to improve their health, energy levels, appearance, athletic performance, sense of calmness, mental clarity and many more benefits!
I started off eating a raw high fat vegan diet, which means I was eating fresh fruits and vegetables but also a lot of nuts, oil, and olives which are all high in fat and do not promote health. Yes, we do need some healthy fat into our diet but only in small doses. I feel so blessed because I have discovered the raw low fat vegan 80/10/10 or RLFV 811 early on in my journey with raw food. To eat RLFV 811 you daily need to eat a large amount of carbohydrates from large quantities of fresh fruit and also incorporate fresh vegetables. You also need to eat a small amount of protein and fat from nuts, seeds and avocados, etc. You eat 80% in carbohydrates, 10% in protein, and 10% in fat. This way of eating is AMAZING!
I’m feeling great and am enjoying each day more than the day before. I’m so excited to keep expanding my knowledge about eating a raw low fat vegan diet. The simplicity of it is beautiful!
Lots of love!
