Diet Myth #8: RAW FOOD DIETS have strictly uncooked, unprocessed foods that have not been heated to more than 118 degrees Fahrenheit or 45 degrees Centigrade including fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds.

RAW FOOD DIETS have strictly uncooked, unprocessed foods that have not been heated to more than 118 degrees Fahrenheit or 45 degrees Centigrade including fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. Some also eat raw eggs, unpasteurized milk, raw meat,and raw fish. Cooking some vegetables like spinach, tomatoes, and carrots make the Phytonutrients they contain such as lutein, lycopene, and beta carotene more available to the body. There are heath risks of eating raw eggs including depletion of the B vitamin,biotin, by a protein called avidin in raw eggs and an increased risk of salmonella infections. Raw fish and meats can cause parasite infections such as tapeworm. Unpasteurized milk can cause intestinal tuberculosis. A cookout site by the sea was discovered in South Africa that was over 250,000 years. So we have been cooking foods for a long time and there is no reason to stop now. While there is no evidence this diet can help you lose weight, you are likely to eat a lot less food if it is all raw!! #drdavidheber #diet #raw #rawfood #rawvegan to learn more go to www.drdavidheber.com and www.herbalifenutritioninstitute.com
