Be healthy

It’s logical! If you meddle with the natural state of your food, your body will have to adjust its natural state to digest it. It will create more acid, more mucus, find it hard to process and extract vital nutrients and will dispose inefficiently of the rubbish. You’ll be left with toxic build-ups (hello irritable bowel syndrome and gall stones!!), a lack of vital nutrients making you want to eat more, headaches, body aches, pimples and worse – bad hair and serious diseases…

Eating a wide range of raw food over time will ensure that your body gets the nutrients it needs faster and disposes of toxic waste faster. There’s less rubbish to ‘rot’ in your system and more nutrients to support your immune system. Also – because raw food won’t need as much acid to break it down when it enters your digestive system, your body PH will be more likely to be alkaline (7.2-7.6). There are studies currently underway that prove that diseases such as cancer can’t survive in an alkaline environment. While some raw food is acidic by nature the thing you need to consider is the reaction it has when it hits the body. Lemons are the best example of this. They are acidic but they react with the body chemistry to alkalise it. Also be aware that not all raw fruit and vegetables induce an alkaline state.

You’ll help your body into a diseased acidic state by eating processed food – this means sugary foods, pre-packaged foods, white flour products (bread, pastas, biscuits and cake (damn)), cow dairy products (milk, cheese, ice cream, butter), booze, drugs, processed table salt and meat. You’ll keep it in that state by not sleeping properly, not coping with stress and not exercising.

    I was wondering what your policy is regarding adding links to the “Raw Food Friends” column of Raw Food Hypocrite? I run a raw juicing website with tasty recipes and interesting articles about the benefits of various fruits and vegetables. I’m sure your visitors would find it entertaining and useful. If possible could you add a link to my site on your blogroll? The URL is I’d be happy to link back to your site in return.
