Raw Food Diets

Strategy to Steal: Down at least five servings of produce daily. Devotees of raw food regimes focus on eating fruits and veggies, most of which are uncooked. Trouble is, “it’s an extremely limited plan. Unless they work with a registered dietitian, most women would have difficulty getting enough calories and nutrients from it,” says Morgan. “Although fruits and vegetables are healthy, they tend to be low in protein and omega-3 fatty acids.” But incorporating more fruits and veggies into your diet can be good for your health--and your waistline. “Fruits and vegetables, in particular, are chock full of water and fiber, which help fill you up without adding many calories,” says Morgan. Plus, a recent study found that women whose diets were rich in high-volume, low-calorie produce ate more food overall, yet consumed 250 fewer calories each day than those whose diets were lacking in fruits and vegetables. Try to have one to two servings of fresh produce at every meal.
