Justification of a raw food diet
The theory is based on the raw food diet that was originallyall people on the planet ate only raw food, after all learned to make a fire at once. Therefore, the human digestive system is best suited to the digestion and assimilation of raw foods. Based on the fact that a person is not adapted to living in cold climates with no warm clothing, and housing, concluded that humanity was born in a warm tropical climate, which means that its main kinds of food - vegetables.
After ingestion of raw fruit is its self-dissolution - autolysis - as a result of the interaction of gastric juice contained in the fruit and enzymes (enzymes).
The thermally processed foods do not contain these enzymes, so the body is forced to spend their own, thereby expending more resources and energy to the digestive process.</ Blockquote>
Most raw foodists reject meat and fish. This is because research data about the features of the digestion of meat by the digestive system of man and wild animals. In humans, unlike predators, a very long intestine, whereas the digestion of meat is ideal short. As a result, the human animal food digest a long time and not completely. Among other arguments - the absence of a human characteristic tusks, claws, etc.
The common belief in the necessity of meatfood for humans is based on the theory of protein needed. Proponents of the raw food diet is cited as an example of large and powerful herbivores, such as elephants, giraffes, etc., are well do without animal protein. The reason is that the amino acids that make up protein and many other important substances produced by the body in a healthy microflora plays a vital importance in the process of digestion.
Another argument against the boiled and fried food -that most of the vitamins in the food are killed during the heat treatment. With a lack of food vitamins and enzymes satiety is delayed, which often contributes to overeating and obesity.
This is only the minimum information about a raw food diet. In general, it is not formed a clear societal attitudes towards it. Someone says something about the stunning results for the health and appearance, someone complains of malaise after the transition to this type of food.
But most people agree that, decidinggo on a raw food diet, you should not do it too fast and recklessly. The body needs time to rebuild, for which to watch your health carefully, especially if you have any chronic or acute diseases.
