Low Calories and Effects: raw foods really contain low calories in comparison to their size. It means that you can eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and you can feel rather full and you will not end up eating lots calories. It keeps a good control over a great number of calories that you eat and help weight loss process.
If you make a comparison to the type of mistakes people make trying to stick to other diets, you can see how useful a raw food diet is.

This is one of the main reasons when weight loss on raw food diet is possible. But there is another important reason.
Digestive Enzymes: Raw fruits and vegetables include much digestive enzymes that cooked food just does not have. The reason is that once food is warmed about 118 degrees, the enzymes alter their structure and break down. Due to this, cooked or processed food is not enriched with enzymes.
But how are digestive enzymes related to weight loss?
Well, the following explanation is a little bit general. But, mainly, digestive enzymes help the body to dissolve the food we eat. If there are a lot of digestive enzymes, the body fractures the food into the most basic form. Then due to lack of digestive enzymes, the body starts to store most of the food that we eat. And this results in obesity. So, you can see the advantage of the enzyme rich raw food diet.
So, due to these two main reasons, fast weight loss on raw food diet is possible. But even if it is not the case, there are many health benefits of eating raw fruits and vegetables.
