Raw food and dating
Despite what you might have heard, a raw food diet is not another “fad diet” as we normally think of one.
In fact, some experts on raw diets say that they’re essentially the opposite: “anti-diets” and more like a lifestyle that simply promotes eating more real foods in their natural state.
There’s some debate over this topic, but many experts feel that foods heated over about 112 degrees Fahrenheit retain less vital enzymes.
This point shouldn’t be overlooked, because it’s not only how many nutrients a food has to offer that matters, but how we are actually able to absorb these nutrients.

Pre-fermented foods themselves are good for you (more on that below), but a food fermenting in your gut causes gas, inflammation and toxic waste to accumulate.
During fermentation in the gut, proteins putrefy and fats go rancid, which negatively affects the mucosal lining of the gut and can lead to intestinal permeability (leaky gut syndrome).
In addition to raw fruits and vegetables, you might consume fish, , or produced with the use of synthetic pesticides, chemical fertilizers, industrial solvents or chemical food additives are included.
