I recently got a copy of the Eating for Energy book, written by none other than the energy foods expert Yuri Elkaim. On this site, I provide you with a comprehensive and unbiased review of the raw food diet and Yuri’s food for energy health plan. What you are about to read are the ESSENTIAL details you need to know before grabbing a copy of his book yourself.
So what exactly is Yuri Elkaim’s ‘Eating for Energy’ raw food health plan?
‘Eating for Energy’ is a comprehensive guide on how to start and follow the much acclaimed raw food diet by the health and fitness guru, Yuri Elkaim, focusing on food for energy.
When I first heard about the diet, I thought to myself ‘this is not for me’. I’ve heard about raw food diets before and felt that it was just too difficult to incorporate into my daily life. But after reading Yuri’s book, it really changed the way I looked at health and how to incorporate energy foods into my diet.
Eating for Energy shows you how easy it is to start feeling healthy and full of energy by following the raw food diet health plan. More importantly, it shows just how easy it is to follow the raw food diet and start taking control of your health.
Yuri teaches us that the raw food meal plan essentially means a ‘low acid, high alkaline’ diet. What does low acid, high alkaline mean? One of the biggest challenges we now face is that because “our” diet is so high in refined grains, animal products, and processed foods, we are constantly consuming a high acid diet.
And this is bad news because when your body is acidic we become prone to sickness and disease! Also, the more acidic you are, the more easily you will store fat. Eating for Energy also explains the concept of digestion and the benefit of natural food enzymes, which are missing in cooked, processed food.
It also illustrates how raw food provides greater vibrational energy that processed food. Your body recognizes the food it’s given and you will feel more energetic and have an easier time metabolizing fat instead of storing it. Find out the secrets of how certain foods for energy will also give you tremendous fat burning capacity!
While all this may sound technical, Yuri explains the concepts effortlessly in a way that is so simple to understand, relate to, and apply.
Why is Yuri’s programme different from other raw food diets?
Like you, I don’t have all day to wait for my meals to dehydrate or sit around. I like quick, fresh food that tastes great. And that’s exactly what you get with the 120 recipes in Eating for Energy. They take less than 10 minutes prepare and they satisfy even the pickiest of “foodies”, including myself!
Eating for Energy is not a diet. It’s a step-by-step food for energy program that helps you transition into a healthier way of eating by adding more raw living foods into your diet.
However, if your current lifestyle has revolved around fast or processed food and you are looking to make some changes for the better, you may find some of the information in the book to be overwhelming. Nevertheless it is a very useful guide if you are really serious about improving your health.
Also, some of the foods and supplements that Yuri recommends may not be available at your local grocer, especially if you require organic fruits and vegetables. You’ll most likely need to visit a health food store to get the ingredients for some of the recipes. That said however, I tend to improvise by using substitutes that are equally healthy and within the raw food diet health plan.
Overall, what do I think?
Eating for Energy is a great nutritional guide to not only boost your energy levels and health but also provides you a step-by-step approach to transform your eating habits. Yuri EIkaim’s food for energy recipes are so easy to follow and practical, making it easy to incorporate raw foods into your diet. Whether or not you chose to follow the entire plan, the advice and even following parts of the plan will still be enormously beneficial. The book is incredibly thorough and contains all the information you will need to embark on this new lifestyle.
Hope this review has helped you,
