Friday, December 31st, 2010

You’ve got a new year in front of you – what will you make of it?

If you’re ready to get your health in gear in 2011, you might want to get some help. My two popular ebooks, The Raw Food Lifestyle and Savory Raw Dressings and Sauces, have helped inspire a lot of people to go raw, and have assisted them during the transition.

I’ve decided to offer them up at a discount for everyone looking to follow through with their New Year’s resolutions to improve their life

Whether you’re looking to lose weight, overcoming disease, or just get more energy for your life, these books can help.

For a limited time I’m offering 15 percent off the purchase of either of them, or 20 percent off the total purchase price if you buy both together.

The Books:

Savory Raw Dressings and Sauces

Savory Raw Dressings and Sauces is all about how great truly healthy food can taste without any of the added junk that ruins most salad toppings. Whether you’re looking for an amazing Italian-style sauce to go on top of zucchini noodles, or something sweet and satisfying for your salad, this book has got it. Besides giving you best recipes I’ve created, it also teaches you how to make your own from scratch using ingredients you have on hand or can get at any supermarket.

To learn more about this ebook, check out this page. During checkout, put in code: “NewYearSale” (no quotes) at checkout for the 15 percent discount.

The Raw Food Lifestyle

If you think that food is the only thing keeping you down, think again. Although raw foods are a major topic in this book, the focus is on lifestyle – those elements outside the stomach which so radically undermine most people’s health.

Getting enough sun exposure, dealing with social issues, sleep, and thriving mentally are all covered in detail. Ever feel depressed or in a mental funk? There’s a pretty straightforward way to escape, which this book covers.

Learn more about the raw food lifestyle, check here, and use code: “NewYearSale” (not quotes) at checkout to get 15 percent off.

If you’re interested in buying both and saving 20 percent you need to use the special package deal purchase link below. All purchases are secure.

Find Out What Causes High Blood Sugar With This Simple Test

Friday, December 31st, 2010

One of the oddest parts of the raw food movement is that a section of its adherents demonize fruit, perhaps the most natural, human-ideal food we could consume.

Many blame the fact that it “floods the body with sugar,” raising blood sugar levels. Now, high blood sugar levels do indeed lead to all kinds of problems, including the raw foodist’s bane, candida, as well as type two diabetes and other conditions. But fruit is not the cause of high blood sugar.

I explain in this article exactly how sugar moves through the body on a healthy diet, and how high fat intake “gums up the works,” and slows sugar processing to a crawl, raising blood sugar levels.

It is in this environment that candida, which feeds off sugar, moves in and makes people feel like crap.

But I don’t want anyone to take my word for it, or rely on the wealth of studies going back to 1927 that have connected high-fat diets with elevated blood sugar levels, which I cite in my article.

There’s a very simple way you can test this for yourself.

Go out to the nearest drug store and pick up a glucometer, the same type used by diabetics to monitor their blood sugar levels, and a some test strips.

Do a week of each of the following diets, testing a few times a day to see how things change depending on when you last ate, when you exercised, etc. Don’t start testing until the third day of each diet, as fat takes awhile to build up and clear out of the blood stream. You can easily figure out if you’re eating the right amount of fat by using a free website like nutridiary.com.

1) High Fat: Make sure you’re taking in at least 40 percent of your calories from fat. Depending on what your caloric intake is, you might take in 40 percent of your calories from fat from 3 avocados, a bunch of nuts, etc. Nutritidary gives you the specific amount of calories that come from fat when you enter in all the foods you’ve eaten. Be as precise as you can be. Record your blood sugar levels and how you feel.

2) Low Fat: Now keep your percentage of calories from fat below 10 percent. Basically avoid all avocados, oils, nuts, seeds, meat, dairy, eggs, or other fatty foods. Eat all the fruit and vegetables you like with no worries about blood sugar.

I’ve done this test on myself multiple times. My blood sugar on the high-fat diet is always high, while always normal on the low-fat diet.

I hope you guys do this test and figure out for yourself how your body handles fat and sugar.

Do Raw Fruits and Vegetables Really Contain Digestive Enzymes?

Sunday, December 19th, 2010

You hear about it constantly from raw foodists – cooking food destroys the digestive enzymes in them, forcing our body to expend energy to create our own.

But is there any truth to this idea, or just another raw food myth that makes the diet a laughingstock for those who study the body?

Find out here.
