different-varieties-raw-foodsRaw Food Diet : Weight Loss & Energy

If you are beginning a Detox, cleanse, or raw food diet, you may start to see some disturbing symptoms, because your body is not used to the change and reacts in various ways.

…in this this video Mike Perrine discusses what can happen and some of what you can expect during those first 30 days.

This is a short 7:37 minute video about starting a new detox, or weight loss program and how personal results can vary widely.

Weight loss during a detox is common, but wildly fluctuates according to the individual. Some may lose five pounds and some may lose thirty…and there does not seem to be any discernible reason for the difference.

Raw Food Menu, A Day’s Food For A Raw Foodist

Ever Wonder What People Eat On A Raw Foods Diet?

First of all, I want to clarify that I am not a pure raw foodist. I eat meats and cooked vegetables too. I am careful to combine my foods properly though to assist my digestion and weight loss efforts.

I do believe that you should have seek a higher percentage of raw foods on your weight loss program menus. I consider myself “high raw” Paleo. And I supplement with digestive enzymes when I consume cooked meals.

Here is a great video of Kris Carr who is a raw foodist. This video shows what an average day’s food intake for her looks like. She really goes into nutrition of certain foods also.

chicken-caesar-main-course-saladLosing Weight with main course salads is an age old tactic.

I know that a small salad before a main course definitely takes up room in my stomach and start satiating my hunger early on, especially if you leave a few minutes between the salad and your entree. I love caesar salads, especially with chicken, but of course no croutons (carbs) for me. Unless it is a cheat meal… 🙂

Maybe this is something that you would like to do too. Maybe you already have pre-dinner salads, or an after dinner salad.

icedteaSince I have started eating healthier, I am more often than not following along according to a plan.

I have begun walk/jogging again starting at 1-1 1/2 miles daily and this will increase gradually as my weight drops off.

I have big goals this year and in order to make them happen, I need all the energy I can create by losing weight and exercising regularly.

So I have been reading a lot on healthy food and driving my energy supply up the roof! Here are some tips for healthy eating that I am practicing.

Who says that you have to starve yourself while losing weight?

Not with low carb meal plans, you don’t. That is why I find this Paleo way of eating so easy to live with.

This is what we are had for our early dinner meal tonight. We picked up two steaks at the butchers earlier. (Porterhouse Steak in the before and after pics.)
