Raw Food Makes You Fitter & Turn Your Body into a Muscle Building Gym
Here is the first handout I gave as part of my Raw Fitness
presentation at Raw Passion in Philadelphia on Saturday.
It turns out I didn't have enough copies of my handouts
so I am emailing them out to you. I bet the people who
didn't attend would like all the handouts as well.
There are plenty of nuggets of valuable information that
may motivate you to exercise in a way that you love.
Exercise is the easiest thing to do. There are hundreds
of opportunities throughout the day for you to get some
The funniest line I heard from someone during this small
group session was this.
Woman: Unfortunately, I can't exercise.
Me: Why not? (Thinking she had some disease or a heart
Woman: Because I don't like exercising.
We all had a good laugh as we know that isn't a good reason
why you can't exercise. I suggested she start playing
more vigorously with her grandchildren. You'll see more
about that idea below.

The funny thing about doing an Optimal 100% Raw Diet is
that it automatically makes you in better shape than you
were before you went raw.
Within a month of going 100% raw my lungs completely
cleared out and for the first time in my life I was able to
take really deep breaths. All the air, even stagnant indoor
air seemed like mountain fresh air. The deep breathing is
naturally relaxing and I don't have to try to do it. The
breathing just became deeper naturally. Because of this new
deep breathing I am able to now jog with my mouth closed. So
much more oxygen is reaching my lungs. I never used to be
able to do that before.
I also noticed that I was lightning fast on the tennis
court. My body seemed to free up so much energy because I
wasn't digesting heavy meals anymore. I felt light as a

We still need to exercise though. It's very important for

unstoppable energy levels and your body is begging you to
I suggest you turn your body into a portable gym. There are
hundreds of creative ways to exercise. I have a friend who
is a Nanny. She's into raw foods but she isn't really into
exercising. One day I came over to where she works.
I started playing with the children. I would pick them up
and make them fly. I would chase them around the yard or
have them chase me. You can have a great workout and not
even really notice it, just by actively playing with your
kids or someone else's. I used to chase my niece around the
house constantly. Her parents didn't have the energy to do
that the way I did. Their daughter had loads of energy. I
guess she wasn't as clogged up yet from years of poor
eating. My extra energy came from being raw and from being
in shape. Being in shape increases your ability to do work.
