Five Health Benefits of a High Raw, High Carb Vegan diet

1. High energy levels

Most people who try out a low fat, whole foods vegan diet praise the abundant energy that comes along with it. The water content, minerals, vitamins, phytonutrients, and antioxidants all keep your body running at it’s peak.  The simple sugars in fruit are easily converted to glucose, the main energy supplier to your brain and muscle tissue. Eating enough carbohydrates from whole foods gives you constant energy, without a massive crash because they’re in their whole form. And because fruit digests so quickly, less energy will be going towards digestion. So there will be more energy going towards daily activities.

2. Clear, smooth, acne free skin

Why do people get acne? The skin is the largest detoxifying organ in the body. Your body will try to push the toxins out of your skin in an attempt to cleanse your body.  So when you’re putting lots of toxins into your body in the form of different “foods” such as milk, meats, cooked foods, the body wants to try to eliminate them as quickly as possible, and through the skin is a every easy way to do so. Especially when the rest of the eliminatory organs are overwhelmed with toxins. The easiest way to get rid of acne is eliminate the toxic foods, and eat more low fat, whole plant based vegan foods to replace unhealthy foods.

3. Makes it easier to be happier

There are many chemical causes of “the blues” such as a lack of carbohydrates, dehydration, overload of toxins, not enough nutrition, lack of movement, etc.  When the body is under these kinds of stresses, the body doesn’t function as well. When you don’t eat enough carbohydrates, the brain produces less of the happy chemical called serotonin. This serotonin deficiency is a big cause of depression. Low fat, whole plant based vegan foods supply all the necessary vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates that your body needs for the brain to function properly. Since this diet is high in carbohydrates, the body will produce an abundance of serotonin, the natural happy chemical. Of course a massive part of happiness is about your thoughts and mindset, but it’ll be easier to be happy because the body isn’t burdened by toxicity.

4. Improved Digestion

Meat can take as much as 7 days to digest, whereas fruit takes as little as 20 minutes to digest. What does this mean for you if you follow a high raw, low fat vegan diet? A nice flat stomach, no bloating, little to no gas, improved nutrient uptake and much more energy do do things you love.

You may have problems in the very beginning, such as bloating. This is normal because your body is accommodating to a higher fiber, higher volume diet. Changes such as the bacteria in your colon changing for the better to deal with the different foods you’re now consuming. It should go away once your digestion improves, as long as you are following proper food combining. If it does not, send me an email, maybe I can help.

5. Stable blood sugar levels

Too much fat is the underlying cause of type two diabetes. Naturally, in a person that follows a low fat vegan diet, the sugar would easily enter the blood stream without any trouble and be stored in the cells in the form of glycogen to then be used by the body when needed.

This cycle is broken when a diet is high in fat. The fat takes up to 48 hours to leave the bloodstream, it reduces the flow of blood and coats the cells, making it extremely hard for the sugar to leave the bloodstream. This causes an excess of sugar in the blood.
