The raw food diet is defined as diet with 75% of unprocessed and uncooked plant foods including all types fresh fruit,vegetables nuts and seeds in order to avoid heating (above 116 degrees F is believed to destroy enzymes in food), thereby, preventing the loss of vitamins and minerals and increasing the absorption of vital nutrients of the digestive system.Unfortunately, it is not for people with digestive disorder, since it increases the risks of diarrhoea and other symptoms of digestive system. People first time in the diet may find to have diarrhoea or loose stool and other digestive problem, but they will go aways in a few days.

Raw Food For Weight Loss
One of the most popular diet fads, low and no fat diets, have left much of the US population in worse health and heavier than they've ever been before. Our bodies need fat, but they need the right kind of fat. Failing to distinguish between good fat and bad fat has lead to the besmirched reputation of all fats, particularly coconut oil.
Ironically, coconut oil is one of the most healthful fats of all, especially when it's raw (extra virgin.) In traditional tropical cultures where coconut has been a staple for thousands of years, there is very low incidence of heart or vascular disease or of obesity. There is no evidence that the high saturated fat intake from coconut has any harmful effect on these populations.
Contrary to much of the conventional wisdom, (which usually means profit-driven carefully constructed propaganda,) polyunsaturated fats, which commonly include vegetable oils such as corn, soy, safflower, sunflower and canola, are actually the worst oils to use, especially in cooking. These oils, even if they weren't intrinsically unhealthy, are highly susceptible to heat damage because of their high double molecular bond ratio. Heating these oils turns them into a soup of free radicals.
Free radicals are molecules with unpaired electrons and are, as a result, highly reactive. In your body, they act as rust, causing oxidation of all sorts of body tissues. This causes accelerated aging and disease process. Rancidity is one form of oxidation and is the end result of heating these commonly used vegetable oils.
There is only one oil stable enough to resist heat-induced damage, while also helping promote heart health, maintain healthy cholesterol levels and support weight loss, and that is coconut oil. Coconut oil is high in Omega-3 fatty acids - the fatty acids your body needs the most of.
It's true that a raw food diet is likely to be naturally calorie restrictive, even while coconut oil itself is higher in calories than some other fats, but this is not the primary reason that raw food for weight loss is effective. The body simply uses raw food, coconut oil included, more efficiently. It's like getting better mileage and performance from top grade fuel. There's less waste and more of what you eat is being converted to energy instead of being stored as fat.
The focus of any dietary change should be to improve health, not necessarily to lose weight. While raw food is an excellent choice for weight loss, it is even better for overall health. As health builds, the weight comes off automatically. It's a win/win proposition. So, turn off your stove more often and take off the pounds. Eat it in the raw.
