Help Your Body to Burn Fat Faster By Eating More Raw Food
Copyright: Healthrecipes.com

 

If you have never taken a mouthful of cantaloupe juice, you simply have not lived. Strawberry juice mixed with pear, or apple and yam is a taste of ecstasy. Blueberry juice is a taste of liquid heaven. A mixture of carrot, apple, beet, celery, tomato, and lemon tastes like a living V8, giving an energy-boost to the day that is far better than a coffee.

Fruit and vegetable juices are the cleansers, energizers, builders and regenerators of the human system. A combination of either fresh raw fruit or vegetable juices will supply all the enzymes, vitamins and minerals critical to increase vitality!

Interesting Facts:

  • It has been stated in farmers’ magazines, that if you want your hogs to fatten up quickly, you feed them cooked potatoes, not raw; that if you want your cattle to gain weight, you feed them cooked grain, not raw.

  • Animals given raw, enzyme rich foods never gain weight regardless of calorie intake. Given cooked, enzyme poor food, they fatten up.

  • Dr. Levin of Omaha, Nebraska, examined 3,000 
    primitive Eskimos during 3 trips to the Arctic and found only one overweight person.  These Eskimos ate large amounts of fat in the form of raw blubber (and other fats) and they ate raw meat.

  • Another interesting fact is that you just don't 
    see fat animals in the wild.  

 

Fruits and vegetables promote weight loss because they ... 

    • are very low in fat.
    • are low in calories.
    • are high in fiber, vitamins and minerals.
    • eliminate wastes quickly and help reduce 
      cravings for sweets.
    • keep your energy levels steady so you don't 
      become too hungry or too tired.
    • carry off excess body acids, and are rich in vitamins, 
      minerals and enzymes that satisfy the body's nutrient requirements with less food.

    Some foods like, broccoli, asparagus, celery, and strawberries, may even contain -- Negative calorie foods which may burn more calories processing them than the actual calorie content of the food itself.  

    If you find it difficult to include a variety of fruits and vegetables into your family's diet, you can substitute some servings with fresh fruit juices, thick and frothy fruit smoothies, fresh vegetable juices, and gazpacho. Juicing allows you to eat more of the vegetables than you would normally otherwise.  

    Freshly made juices are a tremendous source of bio-available vitamins and minerals which are the partners of enzymes and co-enzymes.  Vitamins activate enzymes and without vitamins, enzymes could not carry out their work, and we could not live.

    Enzymes act as catalysts in hundreds of thousands of chemical reactions that take place throughout your body, and are  essential for digesting, absorbing and converting food into body tissue.  Enzymes produce energy at the cellular level and are critical for most of the metabolic activities taking place in your body every second of every day.

    Another benefit of drinking fresh juices and smoothies is that your body can absorb MORE of the vitamins and minerals then if you were to eat the fruits and vegetables whole!  Many of the nutrients are TRAPPED in the fiber and by blending fruits and vegetables, you break down the fiber and release the vital nutrients.

    Example:  
    When you eat raw food like carrots, you are only able to assimilate a small percentage of the available beta carotene. When a carrot is juiced, removing the fiber, a LARGE percentage of the beta carotene can be assimilated by your body.

    And unlike other types of foods (such as those high in fat that many of us eat too much of), plain fruits and vegetables are items we don't need to restrict. So take advantage of the known and yet-to-be-discovered health and weight loss benefits of fruits and vegetables by eating and drinking a wide variety (5 to 9 servings) each day.

    TODAY'S FEATURE ARTICLE

     
    Why do people experience incredible weight loss on a juice fast?

    Before that question can be answered, we have to understand what ‘juice fasting’ is about.

    Juice fasting is about abstaining from solid food, for a period of time, while supplying your body with the most nutritious drinks on this planet. By providing essential vitamins and minerals, the juice can actually jump-start the body’s fat-burning mechanisms. One glass of freshly-made fruit or vegetable juice provides you with the equivalent vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and chlorophyll you would get by eating several pounds of raw fruits and vegetables.

    Most of us have heard how thousands are losing up to 10 pounds in 2 days on the best-selling Hollywood 48-Hour Miracle Diet in which you simply juice fast on bottled (dead) juice for 2 days. Well, juice fasting is a healthier version of the Hollywood Diet because you can fast longer than 2 days while supplying your body with live enzymes and nutrient-rich fresh fruit and vegetable juices.

    Dr. Shelton, a great advocate of fasting, wrote "The weight lost by overweight patients in the early days of a fast is astounding. I have seen losses of five and six pounds a day for the first few days. A woman who fasted in the Health School in January and February of 1950 lost twenty-five pounds in the first two weeks.
