To be fair, there are critics of this kind of eating as well. For example, it has been said that people living in cold climates shouldn’t follow a raw foods diet.

Some people find that eating all raw food doesn’t agree with them. Others don’t feel as if the diet is very satisfying or tasty. And still others are not convinced that all the hype is true.

Another thing that concerns a lot of people is the fact that the raw food diet lacks variety. Yes, you can prepare raw foods into an array of pleasing recipes. But cooked food is part of what makes eating so interesting. Critics of the raw foods diet believe that raw foods should be eaten, but it is okay to have cooked food as well. It is also important to understand that some foods, like tomatoes show an increase in their health benefits when they are cooked. If eaten raw they are still nutritious, just not as nutritious as they could be.

However, this blog will focus on the benefits, not what the critics say. The fact is, eating raw foods has benefited a lot of people and has made them healthier. As you make the decision whether or not to change to a raw food diet, or continue eating a raw food diet, keep in mind that it isn’t for everyone. It is important to check with your doctor before undergoing any drastic changes.

Note that as you make the switch you may experience some gastric discomfort. As your body adapts to a new, healthier way of eating these symptoms should subside. If they don’t go away, you should see a doctor. This discomfort, however, can be minimized if the changes are made gradually, not dramatically.

Remember that it is important to see a doctor if you are deciding to make the switch. If you have health problems they may want to monitor your progress. Also some people may not be suited for this kind of diet. It will be up to you and your doctor to decide what you want to do
