You've heard about middle age spread. It feels like everything we eat ends up around our midsection. I have news for you. Not every kind of food is headed to your waist and hips. Only cooked food does—and not just the obvious things, like burgers and fries, but any kind of cooked food. People who need to lose weight do exceptionally well on the raw foods. The raw foods are generally lower in calories than cooked foods. Given time, the raw food actually effects your inside organs: not only restores their optimal performance, but at the same time bring them back to normal shape and size. And these changes will be reflected in your appearance right away.
