One of The Biggest Secrets to The Success on a Raw Vegan Diet
In this new video I share one of the most important secrets to the success on a low-fat raw vegan diet. And I also give you the cool weight loss tip that you can start implementing immediately. So make sure you watched the video up to the end!
- Eating sufficient quantities of greens is extremely important on a high-fruit diet, because greens provide us with minerals like calcium, iron and magnesium which fruit lacks.
- Greens will also keep you balanced on a high-fruit diet, and will help you to maintain healthy potassium to sodium ratio.
- My definition of greens include leafy greens (lettuce, spinach, kale, chard, etc) and green vegetables (celery, cucumber, zucchini, cabbage, green peas, etc).
- The recommended daily intake of greens on a low-fat raw vegan diet is a pound a day for an average-sized woman (about one head of romaine lettuce a day).
- If you’re not used to eating lots of greens start slowly and try to incorporate some type of leafy green/green vegetable at every meal.
- It is most beneficial to eat greens as close to the state they come from nature as possible, which means with no added oil, salt, spices, condiments, etc. This ensures a proper digestion, absorption and assimilation of nutrients in the body.
- If you consume enough calories from sweet fruit during the day, and still experience cravings and desire to eat fatty, heavy, calorie-dense foods, you’re most likely nutritionally deficient in vital minerals, and you need to increase your intake of greens.
- Weight loss tip: You can release extra weight and lose some fat on a high fruit diet by increasing the amount of vegetable matter and decreasing the amount of fruit matter in the diet. This means eating few pieces of fruit less and make up for it with a few extra cucumbers or celery stalks. This approach works, because vegetables provide us with fewer calories per bite than fruits on average. But they also have the highest amount of nutrients per calorie, and are especially high in bulk and volume (two factors that contribute to satiety). So, what I’m talking here is a slight reduction of daily calories consumed by a few hundred calories (one, two or three hundred). 100 calories a day is such a small amount, for most people it’s not a noticeable change (it’s called a “mindless margin”). So, the difference between weight loss and weight gain is going to be simply a matter of a couple of hundred calories, but spread out daily over a longer period of time. It’s about direction, not speed.
