Are you thinking about Becoming Raw? If you are, this book is a must have!! This is the most informative, complete book I've ever read on this subject. I thought I knew a lot about healthy eating, vitamins and minerals in foods and what food was good for what ailment, but this book is full of information I did not know. The chapters are: Becoming Raw For Life A History of the Raw-Food Movement in the United States The Raw Report: Scientific Evidence To Date Why Raw Rocks! Energy and Power Carbohydrates in the Raw Fat: Friends and Foes Vitamins: Inviting Vitality Acid-Base Balance, Bones and Minerals The Great Enzyme Controversy Food Safety: Raw Case Files Nutrition Guidelines and Menus Recipes I've always wanted to try eating raw. With this book it would be so easy to do. The book is full of drafts and charts. In my opinion, there is no biased information in this book, it is just full of facts and you can draw your own conclusion. My favorite recipes, even though there were only a few, were the Smoothies. I know I'll be using them often. This is a book that you can either live by on a daily basis, or go to whenever you start feeling sluggish and want a boost. I know there have been many studies on the health benefits of going raw, from diabetes, to cholesterol and high blood pressure. This is one of the best books I've come across about eating raw. *Thanks to Anna and Planned Television Arts for this review copy*

The MDs compare both the Blue Zones where the healthiest people have been living, the biggest worldwide retreats, and some of the most prominent research. It covers a lot of typical challenges and shows how to easily circumvent all troubles.
