Remember, raw food is food in the natural state and it is not processed in any way. Before you begin this diet you need to prepare your body physically and mentally for the changes that are about to take place. The increase in nutrition devoid chemicals and other harmful products will put your body in shock. For this reason you must not start on a complete raw diet, phase out your normal diet by introducing the raw foods in your diet one meal at a time.
You can begin this diet with a change in your breakfast menu. Start eating fruits instead of eating a processed meal, drink juice instead of coffee or tea. This is a simple change that may not seem like much but you will notice the difference within a few days.

Continue munching on fruits and raw veggies until lunch time. For this meal you can eat a salad.
Include all the vegetables that you can lay your hands on. You will have to skip the salad dressing; instead you can add olive oil, salt, sugar and a hot spice lie chilly as your salad dressing. Continue to avoid eating processed foods throughout the day and drink juices and eat fruits or nuts as and when you feel the urge to snack. Now, for dinner you can drink a cup of warm milk or eat a bowl f fruits or have a salad.
