Becoming Raw is a comprehensive guide for dietitians, for other health professionals, and for their nutrition-conscious clients who are adopting or considering this popular dietary choice. The book provides answers for those who adopt entirely raw vegan diets, and for those who are simply adding more raw foods to their existing dietary patterns. Becoming Raw addresses controversial subjects: enzymes, nutritional adequacy, health benefits, nutrition challenges, food safety, and current research on raw foods diets with material that is entirely referenced throughout.
“A raw vegan diet is to average dietary patterns what the summit of Mount Everest is to an average hill-an ascent to potentially exhilarating and life-changing heights, fraught with hazard. The health benefits of a judicious raw diet are apt to be considerable, while a reckless approach could be equally harmful. In typical Davis and Melina fashion, ‘Becoming Raw’ is thorough, thoughtful, practical, and balanced. It is, in fact, the gold standard on the topic. If the rarefied terrain of a raw vegan diet calls out to you, Davis and Melina are the best Sherpas in the business; don’t make the trek without them!`
