"Long-Term Raw Foodists End Up BACK Where They Started From", Article by Matt Monarch
The following information is for education only and is not meant to diagnose, prescribe, or treat illness. It is valuable to seek the advice of an alternative health care professional before making any changes.
There seems to be a pattern that happens with 100% Raw Food Eaters. When a 100% Raw Food Eater first embarks into the raw lifestyle, they usually feel GREAT! People see their diseases reverse, they regenerate, become younger and have masses of energy. However, in the long-run, it seems that Raw Foodists often die at about the same age as other people who might be on any kind of diet. Some 100% Raw Food Eaters live to 80 years old, others to maybe 90 - 95 years and I have even heard of one raw pioneer who ALMOST made it to the 100-year mark. Of course, it's great that 100% Raw Foodists can live above the average life expectancy... However, I feel that the human body has a muchGREATER potential to live way past that age, when fueled by a 100% Raw Food Diet.
I feel that there are many reasons why most 100% Raw Foodists don't seem to be living well past the 100-year mark and I discuss many of these reasons in my book, "Raw Success". However, there is one VERY IMPORTANT factor that I want to specifically discuss here today, in relation to this concept.
When a person embarks on a 100% raw lifestyle, after about a decade or so, they are back to where they started from with their diet. I know that this sounds CRAZY, yet it seems to be true. I feel that it is a big challenge to explain this concept...however, I am going to do my best to do so - please bear with me...When a person improves their diet, they go through a period of deep detoxification, releasing old toxins that have accumulated in their body. If they continue with this improved diet, their body will evolve and adapt to a point where they are balanced out with their new diet. When they become 'balanced out' it means that their body has reached a new level of cellular cleanliness; the body is more efficient and requires less food to function optimally. In fact, if this new 'evolved and adapted' body were to again receive the processed foods from this person's previous diet, it could very well make them extremely sick. Whatever obstructive food they could handle before, they can no longer handle now.The best example that I can currently think of to convey this message is as follows:If someone on the Standard American Diet goes out of their normal dietary eating boundaries and indulges in five Twinkies in one sitting, they will most likely get indigestion and not feel well for a while. In the same way, if a 10-year 100% Raw Foodist were to suddenly indulge in five raw chocolate bars made with agave nectar, they will most likely have the same kind of experience. The damage that these five raw chocolate-agave bars can cause in a 100% Raw Foodist is probably equal to or even more damaging than the impact for the Standard American Dieter who suddenly eats five twinkies.
Sounds crazy right? We're all aware that Twinkies are surely a lot more damaging to the human body than a raw chocolate bar. However, someone who has been eating totally raw for 10 years is at a different level of cellular "cleanliness" than other people. Let's FLIP the situation around! If the person on the Standard American Diet were to switch those Twinkies for the raw chocolate bars, they would most likely feel fine. However, if the raw foodist switched the raw chocolate bars for the Twinkies, it may cause some SERIOUS damage and discomfort. In fact, the 10-year Raw Foodist would probably at the very least come down with a fever from eating five Twinkies!
So... back to the original statement:
When a person embarks on a 100% raw lifestyle, after about a decade or so, they are back to where they started from with their diet. A person on the Standard American Diet will pretty much inevitably reach a point where they are experiencing some sort of health issue. These health issues are related to consistently pushing the boundaries of their "normal diet". Instead of systematically under eating, many people tend to systematically overeat and their "normal", baseline diet keeps adapting to accommodate more and more food. At some point their bodies won't be able to handle this situation any more. In order to naturally reverse these health issues and avoid pharmaceutical drugs, they would need to go in the opposite direction, primarily meaning eating less, and making sure to remove any excess toxins that enter their bloodstream from deep detoxification (colon hydrotherapy is strongly recommended). The key is to eat LESS.
Someone who has been eating 100% raw for 10 years has evolved into their new "normal" consistent diet. Again, the primary cause of disease seems to be consistently eating more than your "normal" diet, pushing the boundaries, which can lead to obstruction in the body and disease. For the 10-year 100% Raw Foodist, LESS food is needed than for the SAD eater, for the raw foodie to be eating beyond their consistent diet. Therefore, less food is needed to cause disease in a "cleaner" body. A person on the Standard American Diet who regularly eats five Twinkies as a meal could be fine for many years. However, if the 10-year 100% Raw Food Eater started eating three Twinkies a day consistently, there is a GREAT chance that they would end up with a degenerative illness of some kind. This is why I get concerned about long-term (15 - 20 years) 100% Raw Foodists who decide to go back to eating more "obstructive" cooked foods. It seems pretty risky to me, to do something like that, because it is extremely easy to end up with a degenerative illness in the long-run when eating beyond your "normal" consistent diet that you have adapted to over a long period.
So... When a 100% Raw Food Eater hits around the 10-year mark, they are going to be more-or-less balanced out with their new diet. Eating above and beyond their new normal consistent diet, even with raw food, will lead to adverse effects in the body. In fact... at some point even this new "normal consistent diet" is going to obstruct their body. It becomes essential at this point for long-term raw foodists to eat less food AGAIN, for ULTIMATE long-term success. If I would have ignored my body's wishes and continued to eat those GIGANTIC three-LARGE-avocado salads that I mentioned in last week's newsletter, I may have very well been obstructing my body in a way similar to the person on the Standard American Diet who refuses to eat LESS.
It can be surprisingly common these days to see an overweight 100% Raw Foodist. They may have practiced a lot of long-term fasting, juice fasting and/or Juice Feasting. When you fast like this, it EXPEDITES the process of becoming cleaner on a cellular level. These heavy 100% Raw Food Eaters who did lots of fasting in the past may have evolved to a level where their new healthy "normal consistent diet" is far less than what they actually eat now, even if they're eating 100% raw. Their bodies don't need the excess raw food they eat, so the body FORTUNATELY stores it as fat instead of other excess obstruction within the body, which could lead to disease.
The further you take your diet toward eating less and less food, the more at risk you are to the strange equation of...less food causing more obstruction. The reason why the body even brings you to a space of requiring less and less food is because THAT is where our diets ORIGINATED from. We are TRULY meant to eat very small amounts of food, for optimal health. However, the further we take the path to eating less and less, the more at risk we are, in terms of excess obstruction from damaging foods and toxicity, in this day and age.Thinking back to last week's newsletter, this is why it can be key to SLOWLY walk the path of Systematically Undereating, instead of diving right in to eating small amounts of food. For ultimate long-term success, the 100% Raw Food Eater is required to eat less over time. It's certainly a fine dance and I feel that it is important to create a strategy that works best for you. I feel that if a person wants to healthfully live well past the 110-year mark, it is key to eat a consistent diet, live in a place with clean air, downsize your stress-load, periodically cleanse the colon, and get to the point where emotional eating is void. The "cleaner" a person becomes, the more sensitive that person is to pollutants. Cleansing the colon is one way around this conundrum, to help release the toxicity. Being a 100% Raw Foodist can be exhilarating and risky at the same time. If you play your cards right, I feel that 100% Raw Foodists have the potential to break longevity records - I certainly would love to!
New Products at The Raw Food World
Wildharvested Superfood Seeds!!!As many of you know, Anthony Anderson, the "Raw Model" is an EXTREMELY ethical man whose heart is all about regenerating Mother Earth. You also probably know that a big portion of his energy goes into growing his own wild foods in the most eco-friendly, organic way possible. The concept of these new Wildharvested Superfood Seeds from Anthony is BRILLIANT!. We received the seeds into our store a week ago, I haven't even talked about them yet, and they are already FLYING off the shelves!The fact that these seeds come from Anthony Anderson takes this idea and product to an ENTIRE new level for us. I feel 100% SAFE knowing that these Superfoods I am going to be growing and eating were wildharvested by Mr. Raw Model. In fact, Angela and I brought a bunch of these seeds down to Ecuador to grow :-)
These Wildharvested Superfood Seeds come in these beautiful miniature sliding-door metal containers, to protect them. The packaging is very attractive and makes a GREAT gift idea. In fact, Anthony even created a gift pack containing one of each of the THIRTEEN Superfood Seed packs, as you can see in the picture to the left. He also created two specialist 3-packs, which you can see in the list below. Not only are these the HIGHEST quality of seeds... BUT!!!... Anthony did all the work for us in selecting what he feels to be the TOP 13 Superfoods that we can be intaking into our bodies in order to establish a strong immune system and health!
Check out these thirteen Wildharvested Superfood Seed packs below!!!:
Wild Mixed Salad [3-pack]
Immunity Boost [3-pack]
Superfood Seed Presentation Box [13-pack]My tastebuds are just DROOLING thinking about the wonderful food that we are going to be harvesting from these Wildharvested Superfood Seeds! To learn more about ALL of these seeds and why Anthony chose them, check out this very informative video below with Anthony, The "Raw Model" himself...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3TFc5Dnw5rg
I am excited about ALL of these new Wildharvested Superfood Seeds... However, I am dumbfounded by the fact that from this little $3.95 miniature tin of Goji Berry Seeds, you could LITERALLY grow over 1000 Goji Berry plants and create your OWN Goji Berry Forest!!!
Check out this MUST-SEE video below with Anthony as he discusses these Goji Berry Seeds!:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dWA9YciG5ewSacha Inchi Oil!
I am really excited to now be offering Sacha Inchi Oil. I feel that this is an IDEAL food to cover your grounds and make sure you are getting all of your Omega Fatty Acids. Most of us know that the hardest Omega Essential Fatty Acid to obtain are Omega 3s. Sacha Inchi Oil naturally contains 45% Omega-3 and it tastes AMAZING! From what I have heard Sacha Inchi contains the highest omega-3 concentration of any food on the planet. Sacha Inchi Oil also has Omega-6s AND Omega-9s. It is high in protein, and rich in essential and non-essential amino acids that are important for good health. Sacha Inchi Oil contains no cholesterol, and the Omega 3, 6 and 9 contained in it actually have the potential to lower HDL cholesterol levels.
Don't worry about digestive discomfort, Sacha Inchi Oil is highly digestible (96%), and does not cause nearly as much gas or irritation as some other oils. Sacha Inchi Oil is obtained from cold-pressed Sacha Inchi seeds that grow in the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest and it was used to feed one of the most powerful civilizations in history, the Inca Empire. It contains no additives, or preservatives. Sacha Inchi has a distinctive, delicious flavor, and aroma. It is also an excellent dressing on salads and other foods...
(1 tablespoon of Sacha Inchi = 7g of Omega 3!!!)Reishi & Lion's Mane Mushroom Growing Log Kits!!!
This product is RIGHT in line with the 'growing our own food' theme that seems to be playing out in this Newsletter. When we were in Michigan at the Raw Food Festival in September, we met the owner of Forest Organics. I LOVE this idea!!! He created a line of mushroom kits so that we can all easily grow medicinal mushrooms ourselves! I think this is a GREAT project for children... or for yourself if you want to grow your own Reishi and Lion's Mane for your teas and elixirs!
These kits will inoculate a 40"-long log.
Your Kit Includes: Plug Spawns (which is pretty much like miniature Reishi Logs!!!)
Recipe Booklet & Information PackWe actually got footage at this festival of us interviewing the owner of Forest Organics on how this process of growing your own mushrooms with these kits works. Check it out!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fl75RyW8iD4Enerfood Super Green Food
I'm excited to bring to you another new Green Superfood... This one tastes really good and still contains all of the amazing healthy GREEN ingredients. I personally like to switch up green food brands from time to time so that I know I am getting a wide array of nutrients from different ingredients :-) Go check out the ingredients on the products page for this item and you'll sense that it is a HIGH quality green food... It kind of reminds me of Dr Richard Schultz's super green food from way-back-when. It seems to me like the NEW generation of that classic product ;-)
Health Benefits of Medicinal MushroomsWHAT IS WITH ALL THE HYPE ON MEDICINAL MUSHROOMS LATELY!??!!? Well...it may be a good time to get this book and learn more!... Among their many benefits, medicinal mushrooms have been shown to restore the competency of the immune system and to improve the outcome for people with a variety of serious illnesses, including cancer, hepatitis, and other conditions where effective nontoxic treatment options are limited."The Health Benefits of Medicinal Mushrooms" describes the most common supplemental medicinal mushrooms - including maitake, reishi, shiitake, and cordyceps and their best clinical uses.

We've got a BRAND NEW month with a whole slew of very FUN and EXCITING new 'At Cost' Specials!!! We actually have over 40 different special offers this month!!!... Check it out!
We've received NUMEROUS requests to put the Coconut Secret products on special offer. Leslie, the owner of Coconut Secret, was so kind enough to give us a very GENEROUS discount, so that we can literally knock off a BIG portion of the retail prices for you. Since we started carrying the Coconut Secret products, we have sold THOUSANDS of bottles of them, due to their huge popularity. Many people are excited, for example, to replace agave nectar with this new incredibly gentle Coconut Nectar. The most popular product so far is the Coconut Aminos, I think because of how GOOD it tastes. It can be used to replace all of the soy-based "soy sauce" options, which are much more damaging to the body. The Coconut Crystals taste like sugar and the Coconut Vinegar is a healthy vinegar alternative, similar to Apple Cider Vinegar... AND... All of these products are made from ONE INGREDIENT! Coconut sap from the trunk of the coconut palm! MIRACULOUS! Enjoy...
I remember when Wilderness Poets first came out with their Hempseed Butter. I had been looking for hempseed butter to put on our website for AGES, one that was truly raw and didn't include any other ingredients. Now... over a year later... We are delighted to be putting this product up 'At-Cost' for you to all enjoy. It is 100% pure Hempseed Butter and is also an Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acid Superfood, rich in antioxidants, calcium, protein, and minerals. The seed of the Hemp plant delivers nine amino acids and has a deliciously robust flavor, in the same neighborhood as pine nuts.
We ALSO received a GENEROUS discount this month on the Tooth Soap Liquid and Tooth Soap Shreds and we are passing those savings on to you! Angela and I personally both use these Tooth Soap products every single night. Angela likes the liquid better and I like the shreds ;-) We LOVE how the Tooth Soap doesn't have glycerine or other nasty ingredients that are harmful to the body. Additionally, these items are very potent and you only need a very small amount to be effective, which means the products last a very long time. Tooth Soap is an EXTREMELY popular product on our website and we sell MASSES of these products every month. When these kind of sales happen consistently like they have with the Tooth Soap products, the people have "spoken" and we know that these are really good, high-quality, popular products.
We've ALSO got FOUR flavors of Blessing's "Alive and Radiant Foods" Cookies on special this month, which include her INCREDIBLE TASTING Luscious Lemon Swirls and all THREE flavors of her FAMOUS Raweo Cookies, which are in the picture to the right. These Raweo Cookie Flavors include the Original Raweos, Chai Spiced Raweo, and Oh So Fudgey Raweos!
As I recall, these cookies were literally the first ever dehydrated Raw Food product that hit the Raw Foods movement, about a decade ago. Packaged foods like this didn't exist back then, but Blessings made it happen! NOW!!!... raw snack items are ALL OVER THE PLACE!!! Blessings is the pioneer of packaged Raw Foods and her HIGH-QUALITY product have remained a classic FAVORITE amongst health seekers in recent years. Enjoy...
I'm also feeling some MULBERRY MADNESS here this month!!! ;-) Yes, we have a MASS of products on special this month!!! We are ALSO offering ALL THREE kinds of our Mulberries "at-cost"!!! Back in the day... dried white mulberries were the only kind available and their honey rich taste was to live for. Now we have purple and black mulberries too, which are just as incredible, in their own unique ways! The purple berries are really sweet like the white ones and the black mulberries, which are in the white & black mulberry mixture, are more tart, like the taste of an Incan Berry. The black make for a perfect mix with the white mulberries.
When we held a booth at the Longevity Conference recently, we order hundreds of my favorite Powerwraps (curry flavor) FRESH, to sell at the event, at the VERY end of September. We didn't quite sell them all out, so we are now offering them 'At-Cost' this month. The Curry Powerwraps consistently sell the most on our website, due to their awesome taste. Additionally, we are also offering organic brown flax seeds "at-cost" this month - a staple in most raw food homes for making crackers, breads, cookies and more.
We have Spiced Peruvian Olives with pits at a ridiculously low price this month. Any time we ever have 'At-Cost' specials, we go to our suppliers and buy MASSIVE quantities, JUST for that promo. Therefore, all of the foods, supplements, etc. in this section are always as FRESH as can be for these 'At-Cost' specials... UNLESS... otherwise noted, like right NOW with these spiced olives. They expire NEXT month, so instead of the regular $9.95 price, you can get them now for $2.34.
