There are 4 big issues with the raw till 4 diet. Although this diet will promise you weigh loss and health transformation, it’s important to be aware of the areas that we will cover in this blog post.
Here is the video that talks about it:
4 Issues With The Raw Till 4 Diet
It is not that we are against the raw till 4 lifestyle – it certainly is way healthier than most diets out there, including vegan ones, however there are some aspects of this lifestyle we would like to talk about.
Number 1: The fear of fat.
Yes, too much fat is bad for you. But that doesn’t mean that you need to avoid all fat, especially the healthy fats you get in avocado or coconut flesh.
The world fittest people – elite Kenyan runners and the Tarahumarans in Mexico consume between 9-13% fat in their diets.
Most people transition into a Raw Till 4 diet from standard, fat laden food plans, so going on a lifestyle that exclude all fats may lead to them being less satiated.
For as long as you consume fats in healthy amounts and keep your fat at around 10% of your total daily calories, then there is absolutely no problem with adding them to your food plan.
Number 2: Calories.
I’ve made lots of videos about it and talked about why people gain weight on a high-carb vegan plan due to eating too many calories.
Raw till 4 diet plan tells you to eat a MINIMUM of 2,500 calories per day. Please can anyone explain why a tall female athlete and a short, sedentary lady need to eat the same amount of calories?
Eating more than your body needs can lead to unwanted weight gain, even if you eat fruit or starch.
Number 3: Water.
Do you feel bloated on the raw till 4 diet? This could be due to you drinking too much water. The recommended water intake is 3 liters.
However, most people will not need to drink this much water. The best way to determine how much water you need to drink is to drink according to your thirst.
If you are thirsty – drink more. If your urine is dark in colour, you need to increase your water intake. If your urine is light in colour or clear – you are hydrated.
Number 4: Healing.
A lot of people come into a vegan diet because they want to heal themselves.
However, a diet of fruit, grain and beans, as promoted by raw till 4 diet gurus, may not be suitable for people healing digestive or other disorders.
So it is important for you to know that you may need to eat differently and choose a food plan such as a low-fat raw vegan one or a low-fat, high raw vegan plan that excludes grains and beans.
