The raw food craze has taken off. However, many people who are intrigued by raw food simply don't know how to make the transition from what they're eating now, or how to achieve the benefits of eating raw without giving up their lifestyle or the foods they love. Whether your diet primarily consists of meat and potatoes, or tofu and tempeh, you can incorporate the benefits of raw food into your life.
Over time, our bodies build up poisons from food that is not fully eliminated. Raw food helps to flush out these poisons and contributes to greater energy, gorgeous hair and skin, and a slim figure.

Rose provides specific guidance for moving from one stage to another (and explains why the diet works, even if you choose never to become a 1), as well as delicious, easy gourmet recipes for each stage.
