When I first read about becoming a Raw Foodist, I couldn¿t wait to start. And I didn¿t. Overnight I abandoned my bachelor¿s diet of burgers, Subways, chicken patties, and burritos for raw vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. I couldn¿t wait to experience increased energy, glowing physical perfection, and a longer healthier life. After I took the big leap, many unexpected changes started happening; things I hadn¿t read about like the negative physical side effects and the incredible spiritual dimension of being Raw. Within these pages are details that raw food advocates don¿t preach and have not written about. In honest detail, Raw Spirit prepares you for the world you could be walking into if you choose to become Raw, or if you are already. The second half of Raw Spirit is an extensive interview with Dr. Fred Bisci, PhD, 40 year raw food pioneer, and Master Nutritionist. Included is Dr. Bisci¿s Intermediate Healing Diet, a protocol similar to what he gives clients who want to heal from dis-ease. Although I feel 100% Raw is the optimal diet for the human body if done correctly, it may not be for you. This intermediate diet, containing some cooked foods, can be adopted as your daily diet for health and healing; or it can be used to transition safely and easily to your new Raw Lifestyle.Monarch, Matthew is the author of 'Raw Spirit What The Raw Food Advocates Don't Preach' with ISBN 9780976932901 and ISBN 0976932903.
