    Book details

Most people live on an omnivorous diet, that is, anything that is possible to chew up and swallow and live long enough to tell about, they will eat. Raw foodists maintain that only uncooked foods are fit to be eaten, that cooked food is the cause of virtually all disease and is always harmful to some extent. A cooked-food eater will, if he or she adopts a raw food diet, come to feel lighter, more energetic, and just happier about being alive. The greatest value of the raw food diet is its ability to transform you into a new and better person, with new goals and desires, with better health and more energy. You become more of your essence, your true and natural self. "This delightful book is packed full of useful information for the living food advocate, and the easy natural manner in which it is written makes it most worthwhile reading." J. Vanderborg

This delightful book is packed full of useful information for the living food advocate, and the easy natural manner in which it is written makes it most worthwhile reading. -- J. Vanderborg The greatest value of the raw food diet is its transformative value. To a great extent, when you take up the raw food diet, you become a new and different and better person. You don't just stay the old person, only a little healthier. You become, to a great extent, a new being with new interests, a new philosophy and outlook on life, new goals and desires. You become more of your essence, your true and natural self. You become a person who is more a part of the one great life of Nature and less of the confused human world. You become less "of the world" and more "of the Earth." Such transformations of course are impossible to imagine before you have experienced them. So the raw food diet doesn't so much "improve you" as "replace you" with somebody better! One of the most common statements of people who take up raw food diet in middle age or later, is that they now feel younger than they did even as teenagers. And yet at the same time they feel possessors of an ancient and ageless and eternal wisdom. The spirit is old and wise, and fresh and young at the same time. Raw foodists get new insight into how much better (than we commonly imagine) life can and should be, how Nature intended it to be. The common little miseries of life, such as frequent colds and flu, indigestions, chapping of the hands and lips in cold weather, bad breath, sluggishness and depression, disappear, and become seen as not natural and normal parts of life at all, but indications of an unbalanced and unhealthy, chronically poisoned condition. Unfortunately most of us who take up the raw food diet in our adult years have already been badly damaged by our preceding years and generations of unnatural living. Most of us already have decayed teeth and other deformities. But we do the best we can, and hope that by writing books and spreading this knowledge we can influence a widespread return to more natural living so that future generations do not have to suffer as we have. And of course there is the matter of reincarnation: we want to propagate knowledge that can help make this world a better place to be reborn into! That is one reason why I am trying to spread the knowledge and practice of a raw food diet. If reincarnation is true and I am to be reborn into this world, I want this knowledge widely available so I can rediscover it again!... You can make a comparison between a meal of raw vegetables, and a meal of the same types of vegetables cooked. The raw vegetables leave you feeling light, fresh and alert, whereas the same vegetables cooked will make you feel lethargic and sluggish. It is common experience, how one feels lazy, dull and sluggish for hours after a big meal, such as Thanksgiving dinner. But meals of raw food don't produce such lethargy and dullness. Vegetarians don't believe in killing for food, but too often they kill their food by cooking it! Raw food diet is a sort of rational and healthy austerity. It is the sort of discipline that makes you more free. For example, a skilled draftsman and painter is free to make pictures that look like anything he or she desires to create. The unskilled person is free only to fool around and make childish-looking pictures. A raw food diet is a healthy discipline that frees you to be more creative, work harder and think more clearly. It also makes you more free to enjoy the beauties and wonders of the natural world.

Review Text

  • By A customer on April 30, 1999

    I was attracted to researching raw foodism because of my pets (two dogs, two cats). I heard about raw diets for them, researched it, tried it, and am thrilled with the results in the improvement in their physical well-being. So, I thought, if it's good for them, why not for me? I searched for information on the web which eventually led me to this book. I ordered this book and another at the same time. I started reading the other one first and was so turned off I was tempted to toss both of them. I started reading this one and was immediately drawn into the author's sense of peace and wholeness and oneness with nature. I read the book in its entirety and am convinced that I want to start incorporating raw food eating into my way of life. I didn't need to be beaten over the head (as the other book did), I just wanted information. Reading this book made me believe I could make the switch comfortably even though I grew up on bologna, peanut butter and jelly, soda pop, and McDonald's. Joe Alexander is obviously a 'regular joe' whose journey to raw foodism was taken a step at a time, sometimes falteringly, but with resolve propped up by the results of his experience. The descriptions of his journey make me believe that I, too, could successfully follow the same path. If raw foodism holds any intrigue for you at all, please read this book. (No, I'm not being paid to say this!)

    Great book. Well written, and easy to understand. I would definitely buy more of Joe Alexanders books.

    This was my first in a long line of books about raw foodism and I am SO GLAD it was. Joe Alexander is DOWN TO EARTH - which is not a common thread among many doomsday raw food and detox authors out there. The most valuable aspect of this book was his chapter dedicated to summarizing many raw and natural hygiene authors' theories. I did not know ANYTHING about raw foodism and this simplification made my research that much easier, providing me w/ a quick resource to come back to. For example, I had never heard of Natural Hygiene before.I think the book could've stopped there, but then it became an opportunity for the author to talk about his neurosis and some random stuff, that was easily skippable. In the main, this is a perfect way to start one's raw food education/journey.

    If not, there's not much useful here. A lot of easy reading trips down the 1970's memory lane.

  • By Anthony Scott on December 3, 2017

    When I finished the book I tossed it, didn't save it for a re-read later on like I normally do to good reads. You have to wade through many of the pages. A lot of the stuff was not really very useful. I liked the cover and the very first chapter because it has encouragement and maybe also the latter inserts that are from other authors. Sorry, but it deserves no more time or effort than those spots.

  • By MN Mamma on June 10, 2009

    This book is slow going and hard to read. I was hoping it would be a quick read and full of thoughts I could use to convince others of the benefits of raw food. It does not do that. I agree with another reviewer who said this was an outdated walk down memory lane. There are so many benefits to raw food. Can't someone organize them scientifically and convincingly? This book goes off on many tangents and is completely and utterly unconvincing. It is not a good book for new raw foodists, experienced raw foodists, or those considering raw foodism. I am still searching for the perfect book for beginners. So far, the raw food Detox diet is my favorite for newbies and the raw food diet myth is the best all inclusive review.

  • By Kaydi on April 19, 2011

    I don't remember what I was expecting from this book when I purchased it but I guess I was looking for a compelling argument as to why people should go raw. His writing style is fun and easy to read...he keeps it lighthearted and to the point but alot of the info presented was just opinion and not based on scientific evidence which I find disappointing. I know that the raw food diet is not mainstream therefore scientific evidence is probably scarce because of the lack of popularity but I still expected I felt like I didn't really learn anything from this book...he does mention many different authors that deal with diet and what books were worth reading which I guess opens the door to other opinions and allows you to explore the raw food world better but other than that this book was kind of pointless for me.

    One of the best books out there. Author interviews all kinds of greats which = all kinds of great viewpoints and ways of conquering Raw Food Lifestyle.
