Health Benefits of Eating Raw

  • Show Notes

In this episode, health food enthusiast and Founder of Live, Love, Fruit Carly Fraser joins us to talk about our relationships with food in its most natural state. After years of struggling with her weight and health, she completely changed the way she looked at food and it changed her life.


Carly grew up eating a standard american diet. It wasn't anything extreme, but just like any kid, she enjoyed junk and sugar. Those pleasurable snacks lead to a little less pleasurable outcome. She found her energy level decreasing and endured chronic ear infections.


She made a health food change in her early teenage years. Carly talks about becoming a pescatarian, then vegetarian, then vegan and untimely practicing raw veganism- eliminating animal based foods and only eating food in its raw form. She discusses the health benefits of the diet and the physical results she noticed.


Limiting your diet doesn't mean you have to hate what you eat. Carly explains how she still indulges in comfort foods in raw form. This episode of True Detox is all about rebuilding your relationship with food and creating a healthier you.
