How to do a raw food diet

Raw foods are foods that are usually consumed raw or 75% uncooked. Fruits and vegetables are two examples of raw foods. People who eat raw foods usually believe that living plants (vegetables, fruits, etc) should be eaten raw or cooked only lightly because they lose their nutrients and enzymes when cooked for a long time.

So if you are following a raw food diet (also known as the living food diet), should you stop cooking foods and start eating everything raw? The answer is No. As much as raw foods are claimed to have better health benefits than their cooked counterparts, not everything should be eaten raw. Most raw foods are very high in vitamins and minerals, but they do not have a lot of protein and iron as you would get in beans and meat.
