When you want more energy, how do you get it? Most people don’t have time to lie down for a power nap, and are for more likely to reach for caffeine or an energy-shot, instead. If this sounds familiar, perhaps it is time you realize these drugs only delay and compound your exhaustion. You tend to need them more and more until nothing can really give you the motivation you need.
After taking them for so long, your days and nights tend to be spent with an overwhelming feeling of tiredness, coupled with restlessness, poor sleep, or even insomnia. It is a state of limbo, wherein you neither wish to sleep, or to be active. It feels terrible, and the more days you spend this way, the more your life slowly slips away. It isn’t right and you don’t have to take it.
Your lack of energy is not due to anything outside of your control. It is not a side effect of aging, and it is not because there is something chronically wrong with you. More likely, you are tired because your current diet and lifestyle is not inline with what is known to be healthy, energizing and healing. You eat a heavy, processed diet, and imbibe caffeine or other “energizing” supplements daily. Your body is out of balance and screaming for something new. Your exhaustion, coupled with an inability to obtain refreshing sleep, is merely one of your body’s emergency signals.
There is a way to break this cycle and get back to strength, vitality, and energy by eating a raw food diet. Raw food is energy food for three reasons: It alkalinizes your body, stocks it with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, and replenishes it with enzymes. Without getting these three important benefits from your daily eating habits, you cannot enjoy the life you deserve. Unfortunately, many of us in North America barely even eat vegetables, let alone raw food. I hope that for you, and many others, this is about to change.
Eating for energy raw makes you feel better than ever!
As I’ve already mentioned, the first benefit of raw food comes from making your blood pH more alkaline. What does this mean? It is pretty simple. Your blood pH, like any liquid, is balanced between alkalinity and acidity. In a healthy, energetic body, the blood is alkaline, which allows organs, cells, and the immune system to function optimally, and creates a friendly environment for healthy, disease and parasite-fighting bacteria to flourish. Invading fungi, bacteria, and pests are kept in check, and digestion functions perfectly.
When you eat a diet filled with refined sugar and flour, dairy, meat, preservatives, and other processed food, your body becomes acidic. This is difficult for your digestion, your immune system, and organs, like your liver and pancreas. It causes helpful bacteria to die, and harmful invaders to thrive. Your body becomes more susceptible to illness and your ability to properly convert food into energy is highly compromised.
To make matters worse, processed foods are not only acidic, they tend to be nutritionally deficient and calorie-dense. Not only do they provide fewer nutritional benefits, but your compromised digestive system is rendered less capable of assimilating the nutrition they do provide. You take in a lot of fat, sugar and salt, and have little in the way of substantial nutrients to show for it. Can you see why you might be feeling a little tired?
Tied into all of this is the lack of digestive enzymes in a standard American diet. Enzymes are proteins which speed reactions between cells. They help your body run efficiently, and are present in raw foods to help you digest them faster. You are born with a finite amount, and as they become depleted, your body is forced to pull them from other areas in order to aid in digestion and assimilation of nutrients. This means you age faster and pull energy from your body every time you eat.
After reading all of that, do you still want to live on a processed diet? I didn’t think so. I call my program Eating for Energy, because that is what it is. It is the opposite of how we normally eat; it is more intentional, more conscious, more in tune with what your body wants and needs. That is what makes it special. You can rely on fresh, raw food, not acidifying energy supplements to provide you with all the health and vigor you will ever desire.
Eating for Energy Raw is the lifestyle change you have been looking for!
A high energy raw diet will not only restore your body to its best possible state, it will replenish you with nutrients, heal your digestive system, rebuild your immune system and supply you with age and disease fighting ingredients. You can be as energetic as a child with the wisdom of your years, as long as you use what you now know to bring yourself back to health. Stop filling yourself with processed junk food, coffee, and guarana, and start letting food be your best and only medicine.
When you make the choice to eat mostly raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and whole grains, you won’t ever regret it. It is like beginning a whole new lifestyle. As your energy soars, other areas of your life get better, too. You finally have the motivation to plan a vacation, clear out some space for yourself, or start an exercise routine. A lot of what was holding you back is the groggy aftermath of a poor diet. It is completely within your power to choose something better, so what are you waiting for?
You don’t have to do this all on your own. In fact, I wrote a book for people exactly like you. My eBook, Eating for Energy, gives tons of advice, including recipes and menus, to help you make the transition from an energy-less existence to enthusiastic living. Eating raw is really that dramatic, and once you experience it, you will know why. Every time you take in a meal, you will be filled with the knowledge that you are doing something great for yourself. As that food starts to work for you, you will receive the benefits of whole nutrition, enzymes, and renewing nutrients. The longer you stick with it, the better it gets.
What if eating wholesome healing food was as much of a habit as eating potato chips? What if you taught yourself to reach for carrots or apples, instead of candy and crackers when you wanted a snack? Can you imagine the difference that could make in your life? If so, get started. Eating for energy raw is exactly what you need if you wish to have health, energy, and motivation to spare.
