Eating For Energy – A Review

Sunday, February 12th, 2012

If you are considering a more healthy diet, then Eating For Energy may be for you.  This sensible eating plan, which is what it is, rather than a diet, works on the principal of eating raw healthy foods most of the time.

As a by product of eating this raw food diet, you can expect to have more energy, feel better in yourself, and probably lose some weight without feeling like you are dieting.

However, eating a raw food diet is a big change for most people, as we are brought up on processed foods, so it may take a bit of getting used to, and it may be a big shock to your body as it adapts to the Eating For Energy system.

Your body is probably very used to fast foods, or processed foods, which contain a lot of additives, and this can be a reason why people put on weight, and it may take a little while for your body to accept a new healthy eating regime.  Many people find the first few weeks of following a raw food diet like having a detox.

You will also need to get used to preparing different foods, Yuri Elkaim (the author) has tried hard to make it as simple as possible, as we all know that if you make it too complicated most people won’t do it.  However simple it is, it still involves changing the way you behave, and that take a little time, but it really is worth it.

So if you are looking to lose weight, feel more healthy, have more energy, and live life to the full, why not try the Eating For Energy program?  If you would like a free ebook on raw foods, which I highly recommend, see the book on the right of the page and request your free copy.

Raw Food Diet – The Facts

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

What is a raw food diet?

Well basically it is eating raw, or warmed up food, but not cooked. The diet will tend to be vegetables, but it is possible to include raw animal products, such as raw milk, cheese made from raw milk, ceviche (raw fish), carpaccio (raw meat) or sashimi.

While some people will eat only raw foods, others will eat mostly raw foods (maybe 70%) and add in cooked food for both convenience and variety.

Why a raw food diet?

People eat a raw food diet because they believe that the mostly healthy food is uncooked food. Cooking is thought to destroy the enzymes that are naturally present in food. According to the experts enzymes in food help us to digest food and absorb nutrients much better than cooked food. If we eat too much cooked food, our bodies have to work harder, and over time it is thought it can lead to nutrient deficiency, digestive problems, accelerated aging and weight problems.

Some people will eat a raw food diet for just a few short weeks as a detox of their system, other people love the benefits of it so much they stay on the diet 100% for ever. Others will incorporate it in to their lives, eating maybe 70% raw, and the rest of the time cooked.

Some people have reported that after eating raw foods only they have a big increase in energy. When you first start on a raw food diet the changes can be quite hard on the body, so give it some time for your body to adjust, and try to get organic fruit and vegetables as the increase in products with pesticides may not agree with your body.

Until you try it, get used to it, and see the benefits for yourself you won’t know – will you?

Eating For Energy – What Is It?

Monday, January 9th, 2012

I was chatting to one of my friends recently and she was telling me how she had discovered this new raw food diet, and how she had lost 10lbs already, and that she had so much energy she felt amazing.  Apparently it was doing wonders for her love life as well, but I didn’t want all the details about that!

Anyway, she did look good.  I could see she had lost some weight, but not only that she looked more healthy.  That isn’t to say that she looked sick before, because she didn’t, but she did look better than usual.

I asked what she was doing.  She answered ‘The Eating For Energy’ book which she found on the internet was just fantastic, and after only a few weeks she could really feel the difference.  She did say that she had found it a bit difficult to get used to it, but after making the effort she was so pleased with the results that she was definitely going to stick with it.

Anyway, the way I see it, my friend was convinced, and looking at her I was convinced too, so I went for a look on the internet for Eating For Energy, which I found pretty easily.  The author, Yuri Elkaim seems to be pretty well known as well, I went and google searched him he seemed to know what he was talking about, he has a lot of products on diet and fitness, and some good write-ups.

I’m now going to go and get it myself, and see how I get on.  What’s the worst that can happen?  That I don’t like it and I get my money refunded, so no risk at all.  I’ll keep you all updated on how I do, so watch this space for the new, improved me!
