Raw Food Menu Suggestion

Want to try raw foods? It’s not always obvious what to eat on a daily basis to make this diet work. So, what should you eat in a typical day?

What are your goals

The first question you should ask yourself is: what are your goals?

If, for example, your goal is weight loss, then you don’t have to be so concerned with eating a sufficient amount of calories. In that case, a plan that features more salads and vegetables (by skipping of course the fatty dressings), will help you reach your goal faster.

If you don’t have any weight to lose, and you just want to improve your health, then you want a healthy program that gives you enough calories and energy so you’re not hungry all the time.

And finally, if you just want to increase the quantity of raw food in your diet, you may want to replace one or two meals a day with a raw food meal, and those meals should provide you with enough calories so you’re not hungry for several hours.

Here are a few basic menu suggestions I propose:

Weight Loss Raw Food Program

Breakfast: Fruit smoothie, fruit meal or green smoothie

Lunch: Fruit and salad

Dinner: Salad, vegetables, low fat dressings, and a very small amount of nuts and seeds

Sustenance 100% Raw Food Program

Breakfast: fruit meal and green smoothie

Lunch: Huge fruit meal based on sweet fruits (bananas) and some greens

Snack: Fruit

Dinner: Salads, vegetable entrees and nuts and seeds or avocado

High Raw Food Program

Breakfast: Raw smoothie or green smoothie

Lunch: fruit meal with greens, or cooked carbohydrate with vegetables

Dinner: Salad with cooked meal

Snack: Fruit

    HI FREDERIC, IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I WROTE YOU. I WAS ALL RAW FOR A WHILE BUT NOW I JUST EAT WHAT IT TAKES TO KEEP GOING. I WOULD LIKE TO TRANSITION TOWARDS A MORE RAW DIET AGAIN SO I WAS WONDERING ABOUT SOMETHING. I FEEL I MAY BE SOME WHAT HYPOGLYCEMIC AND ALL THE FRUIT I WAS INGESTING REALLY THREW OFF MY BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS. I ALSO FEEL THAT I FUNCTION BETTER WITH GENEROUS AMOUNTS OF FAT IN MY MEALS. DO YOU HAVE SOME TIPS AND ADVICE ON THESE SUBJECTS? THANKS RYAN
