Raw food is whole, natural, unprocessed and not heated above 45 degrees celcius so it is "alive" with nutrition. When you eat raw food, you are eating vitamins, enzymes and minerals in their most natural forms. Though high in calories, they are food forms that the body immediately recognizes and knows how to break down and absorb.
These natural, whole and healthy foods are then the vehicles that distribute energy within the body and sweep the digestive system and especially the colon clean of debris, or toxic waste, the accumulation of which leads to weight gain and disease.
Eating raw food allows the comfort of never having to worry about calories and brings the peace of mind that your body is going to be rejuvenated and re-energized by that natural food source and that you are going to increase your energy, revitalize your mind and lower your risk of disease.
People focus on the calories in food instead of the ingredients themselves. This is wrong. Foods that are low in calories are not always easily absorbed and integrated within the digestive system. Foods that are high in calories, but are a natural, whole food source, are easy for your digestive system to break down.
"Low-fat", "no-fat", and "low calorie" foods are foods that reach you in an unnatural state. They have been chemically manipulated and often industrially processed and offer a misleading idea of their nutritional value. Usually, they do more damage to your body than good.
Is the body able to absorb unnatural foods? No. If it is unable to absorb these unnatural food sources, it turns them into waste. Remember, the accumulation of waste in the body leads to weight gain and disease.
What does dehydrating food have to do with the raw food lifestyle? By dehydrating foods under 45 degrees celcius, the food is still raw with most of its enzymes, vitamins and minerals intact. Dehydrating foods prevents them from spoiling too fast, giving your raw and healthy food a longer shelf life and ultimately saving you time in preparation. Some raw foods can last a few weeks or months if dehydrated and stored properly.
