Carrot and Raisin Bar

Carrot and Raisin Bar

It is very frustrating isn’t it? You have tried practically every type of diet plan or program going and yet still that stubborn fat sits around your waist, thighs and butt and just won’t shift. High carb, low fat, low protein, low carb, high protein and everything in between – you’ve done it.

You have survived on ’diet shakes’, pills and powders and even gone to the extremes of fad diets that favor some food groups and exclude others. But they left you feeling light headed, nauseous and plain awful yet, when the smoke cleared on them all you found that nothing had changed, the fat remained the same (or maybe had even gotten worse).

To avoid this dietary disaster cut out as many processed and refined carbohydrates as possible especially non-nutrient junk-like snacks like potato chips, candy, ice-cream, baked cookies and cakes, sugary cereals and soda and replace them with some raw food recipes still in their natural raw form like nuts, seeds, coconut, fruit and vegetables. Not only will you consume fewer calories overall you will be getting tons of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that will guarantee speedier fat loss.

The consumption of processed foods is now the rule rather than the exception for the vast majority of people and it is this factor, perhaps more than any other that practically guarantees you will be struggling with both your weight and general health for as long as you keep eating them. Raw food recipes in the way of snacks and treats are an excellent way of getting rid of some of that type of non-nutrient food and getting some ‘living’ foods full of enzymes and nutrients into your body and the bodies of your children.
