How to shift to raw veganism?

Author: Reilika Nestor 07.01.2015 at 00:00

The shift from eating meat and processed foods to a diet of raw vegan food is difficult. Just like people are slaves to our habits, so are our bodies. Our organism is used to processing certain nutrients and the function of our internal glands has adapted to this.
This is why a quick shift from whatever eating habit to another is not smart, but you have to do it step by step. For making the transition, you should begin with gradually increasing the amount of raw food while eating less and less of boiled foods. This may cause hunger, digestive discomfort, and serious mood changes, but luckily these effects pass and will probably last only two to three weeks. After that you discover you’re overwhelmed with the feeling of relief and freedom raw food brings.

Some have practiced sudden transitions using fasting. The purpose of this is to clean your body of old substances and poisons before beginning a completely new diet. Let it be said that before cleansing, you should consult with a doctor or a nutrition specialist.
