Actress Demi Moore stays slender from her raw food diet
Demi Moore dazzles, thanks to her diet plan.
Slim celebrities such as Demi Moore and Alicia Silverstone follow raw food diet plans to maintain their beauty. Many other actresses, actors, models, and sports stars have been seen dining at restaurants that serve up raw food in high style (and high prices!).
What’s so special about raw food? “Living food has not been heated above 118 F, the temperature at which enzymes die,” explains raw food coach Susan Schenck, who authored The Live Food Factor, The Comprehensive Guide to the Ultimate Diet for Body, Mind, Spirit & Planet. When you cook food, you destroy all of the enzymes and more than 80 percent of the vitamins, according to Susan.
In addition to Demi Moore, Alicia Silverstone, and Woody Harrelson, all of whom are “raw foodists,” Susan says that “model Carol Alt was about to lose her career as a supermodel when she was age 34. She was getting puffy eyes and wrinkles. Her doctor told her to eat what she normally did, but eat it raw! She did, and her wrinkles disappeared.”
In addition, Carol Alt subsequently “posed nude in Playboy magazine at the age of 47 to show the world how a raw food diet can preserve you! The woman didn’t look a day older than 34. It is as if the raw diet froze her body in time!” adds Susan, who also is a licensed acupuncturist.
The raw food expert notes that “the raw food diet is more balanced in the ratio of Omega 3 fatty acids to Omega 6s. The SAD diet (Standard American Diet) contains too many processed and fast foods, which are high in Omega 6 fats. So the SAD diet is about 1 Omega 3 to 25 to 40 Omega 6s! But the raw diet, which contains none of the processed foods nor fast foods, is a healthy 1:1 ration.” Susan believes that “the obesity epidemic is chiefly caused by the high Omega 6s. In the 1980s, we started eating a lot of corn and vegetable oil. We also started using high fructose corn syrup (another cause of obesity).”
In contrast to the typical American diet, “the raw diet is rich in Omega 3s from walnuts, flax seeds and chia seeds. It is also rich in MUFAS (monounsaturated fatty acids) such as olive, avocados, nuts and sunflower seeds. These help reduce belly fat,” adds Susan. In addition, the raw food diet includes coconut butter or oil, which Susan says “has been proven to help people boost their metabolism to burn fat.”
