People frequently notice a weight loss when they start eating a raw food diet – especially all raw. At raw food institutions, such as the Optimum Health Institute and the Hippocrates Health Institute, the average weekly weight loss is four to fifteen pounds. Much of this will be water, but on raw fruits and vegetables (take it easy on the fats), later weight loss will be fat, especially if you add some movement (aka exercise) to your improved lifestyle.
As you replace cooked and processed foods with more raw food, you can expect to lose weight quickly and consistently, and keep it off. We are talking about a lifestyle change here, not just another diet, even if it’s just adding more raw fruits and vegetables to your diet, rather than going all out and switching to a completely raw diet. Eating the same things that got you here will get you back here, if you don’t maintain some changes.
