If you’re like many people these days, you tend to eat some foods, from time to time, that leave you feeling worse for wear. Whether it’s overly greasy foods that leave your stomach and GI track in knots, or overly sugar-laden foods that cause a roller coaster of false energy highs and stomach-cramping lows, the after effects might leave you wondering if there’s a way to eat healthier and feel better by doing it. You may not be ready for the full time switch to a completely healthy eating system like a raw food diet, and that’s okay.

Small steps are good, because you’re at least acknowledging that there’s something in your current food plan that isn’t working, and actively trying to find a solution. One such solution, and a good way to test out what the raw food diet is all about, is a short-term raw detox diet plan.

A raw detox diet aims to shock your system with a massive barrage of healthy, uncooked food. It will deprive your system of the unhealthy things it’s used to, like alcohol, caffeine and processed sugars, and replace them with enzyme-rich foods. The duration of this detox diet can vary, depending on how much effort you are willing to put into it. The bare minimum in order to see some real results would be a month of raw eating, at least in a large percentage of your daily food. Anything shorter than that will simply not be enough to leave any sort of lasting impression with your body. Some plans claim to make a change within a single week, but at most, you will be simply eating well for a week ñ not making any real changes.

So, why try a raw foods detox diet? One of the reasons is those wonderful enzymes that the cooking process usually kills off or greatly reduces the numbers of. A sudden and dramatic increase in enzyme-rich and easily digested foods will allow your body to absorb nutrients and vitamins more quickly, while allowing the waste to be processed more efficiently, and with less strain on your organs. This quick-moving food process will not only stop the deposit of trace wastes in your system, but help to remove what has been left behind by old meat, starches and other difficult-to-digest items. Removing this old gunk may also increase your ability to absorb nutrients from the foods you eat.

Under a raw food diet, you are held to eating only things that have not been heated past 118 degrees Fahrenheit. This usually includes a healthy number of fresh juices and blended drinks, combined with a large amount of water to help flush out the system. Other meals will be mainly consisting of fresh fruits and vegetables, including loads of leafy greens.

In the end, some people call it a raw detox diet, but in order to really get the benefits of it, you need to go further, and make some real life changes. Think of it as less of a diet, and more of a lifestyle change.
