Karen's 10 Tips for Going Raw


Karen Knowler, raw food coach extraordinaire from the UK, list out her Top 10 Tips for going raw.

  1. Only bring more raw foods in to your diet if you are ready for change. Eating more raw food is going to give your more energy and make you think more clearly, so you have to have plenty of ideas for what to do with that!

  2. Start gradually by replacing your usual cooked breakfast with any of the following: unlimited fresh fruit; fresh fruit smoothie; freshly squeezed fruit or vegetable juice; fresh almond milk (blend 3 parts water with 1 part almonds then strain); rehydrated prunes, apricots and figs topped with fresh almond milk.

  3. Buy a book on the subject that will give you a good overview of the subject as well as recipe ideas and what you can expect. Recommended reading: Feel-Good Food by Susie Miller and Karen Knowler and Eat Smart Eat Raw by Kate Wood (both available from The Fresh Network).

This rule is simple… eat whatever you want, just as long as you eat 2 bananas before breakfast, 2 bananas before lunch, and 1 banana before dinner. Obviously eating healthier than normal would help your weight loss efforts even more, but it’ s not 100% necessary.
