Ruthann Russo has been a vegetarian and vegan for more than 20 years, and in 2007 became a passionate raw-food enthusiast. She brings that passion to the pages of this comprehensive introduction to raw and live food. In simple, encouraging language, she conveys a wealth of information, from the philosophy of raw-food nutrition, to how it affects the body, to how to transition from a regular diet to one that promotes physical, emotional, and spiritual health. Using examples from her own life, Russo lays out a practical plan for making the switch that starts with realizing the need to change one’s diet (and health), and then stresses small dietary changes to discover what raw foods work, and assessing reactions. She profiles cacao, raw sweeteners, water, pH level of foods, juices versus smoothies, salt, the process of dehydrating food, garlic and onions, and overall food preparation. Russo highlights what supplements (superfoods, vitamins, green products) to include in the diet. She emphasizes the spiritual aspects of the movement as well, exploring meditation, yoga, Buddhism, peacefulness, and fasting. From the Trade Paperback edition.

A top nutritionist provides her simple, proven five-level diet plan to safely make the transition to eating raw foods, and to detoxify and achieve a perfect body no matter how you eat now. The raw food craze has taken off, as raw restaurants spring up and celebrities, models, and other fans tout the effects of eating raw. However, many people who are intrigued by raw food simply don't know how to make the transition from what they're eating now, or how to achieve the benefits of eating raw without giving up their lifestyle or the foods they love. Natalia Rose, an in-demand nutritionist, shows how in The Raw Food Detox Diet. Whether your diet is primarily made up of meat and potatoes, or tofu and tempeh, you can incorporate the flavour and lasting health benefits of raw food into your life. Over time, our bodies build up poisons and store waste from food that is not fully eliminated. Raw food helps to detoxify the body by flushing out these poisons and setting us back on a course toward greater energy, clearer skin and shinier hair, and a slim, natural figure. But making the transition to a raw diet too quickly can have negative effects on the body. Instead, the healthier way is to make a gentle change based on your previous diet and current needs. You do not conform to The Raw Food Detox Diet; it conforms to you, and you choose how far you want to go. Whether you're looking to live an all-raw lifestyle, or just to improve your energy and shape while still eating the foods you love, this groundbreaking diet book will energize and inspire you to achieve your goals safely and easily.
Why do most diets fail? Why does one person eat a certain meal and gain weight, while another eating the same meal loses pounds? Why, despite all the advice about what to eat, are we all still getting fatter? The answers are much more surprising - and fascinating - than we've been led to believe. The key to health and weight loss lies not in the latest fad diet, nor even in the simple mantra of 'eat less, exercise more', but in the microbes already inside us. Drawing on the latest science and his own pioneering research, Professor Tim Spector demystifies the common misconceptions about fat, calories, vitamins and nutrients. Only by understanding what makes our own personal microbes tick can we overcome the confusion of modern nutrition, and achieve a healthy gut and a healthy body.

In this book author John McCabe tackles the myths, rumors, and lies surrounding the vegan diet. While hundreds of thousands of Americans undergo heart surgery largely because they have eaten a diet heavy in meat, dairy, and eggs, some people consider the vegan diet to be extreme. However, what should be considered extreme is a populace consuming massive quantities of foods that are known to cause human disease, including meat, dairy, eggs, processed sugars and salts, synthetic chemicals, and damaging fats. What should not be considered extreme is a low fat vegan diet rich in raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, which is a diet that infuses health. It is a diet that, when followed, greatly reduces the chances of experiencing what have become common degenerative and chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, MS, Alzheimer's, Chron's, arthritis, osteoporosis, macular degeneration, and kidney disease. What have become the common foods in America are also becoming common in other countries. Because of this, rates of chronic and degenerative diseases are increasing in other countries. Incidence of heart attacks, strokes, diabetic coma, and conditions such as erectile dysfunction largely can be traced back to low quality dietary choices, and chiefly to diets rich in animal protein, unhealthful fats, and synthetic chemicals. Modern scientific studies done at institutions around the planet are concluding that a diet free of animal protein and rich in fruits and vegetables is a way of greatly improving health while reducing common diseases. From an environmental standpoint, a plant based diet is more sustainable, and it reduces the use of fossil fuels, improving the conditions of the environment and wildlife. Everyone from world-class athletes to political leaders, corporate executives, actors, and common people are tuning in to the health benefits of the vegan diet. This book helps to explain the benefits fo the diet, and how to go about it so that vibrant health can be experiences, and the chances of experiencing common diseases is greatly reduced.
My daughter and I believe that the foods we eat have a big impact on our health. Thus, we are dedicated to creating nutritious dishes that taste delicious and showing others how to integrate flavorful meals into their diet for improved health. This is why we wrote "a mother and daughter diary of raw food recipes for beginners."In this book, we dispel the myth that nutritious meals are difficult to prepare, unsatisfying, and bland. Instead we illustrate how easy it is to create and integrate healthy foods into our lifestyle that are satisfying, full of amazing flavors, and require minimal time to prepare.
