Raw food diet

Some supporters of the diet with raw food are vegetarians too, i.e they do not eat food of animal origin, but there are those who consume raw meat, raw milk, raw eggs and some other products of animal origin. Usually at least 75% of the food should be eaten raw.

Sticking to nearly all diets should be for a certain period to be effective. That is not the case with this diet. There is no recommended period, because the raw food diet should be considered as a way of lifestyle and can practiced constantly.
