Eat at least 50% of your daily intake as raw fruits and vegetables. It has been the best weight loss secret I have learned, although a friend says 75% would be better. I have consistently lost weight doing this. It keeps me feeling energized and my digestive system clean and moving.
Most recipes that call for honey can substitute sugar. Instead of using refined white sugar, use Sugar in the Raw. This will greatly decrease your overall sugar and carbohydrate intake while giving your body something it can digest more easily. Natural is always the best option!
