The Natural Foods Diet is the avoidance of all unnatural and refined/processed ingredients. These ingredients include refined sugars, refined flours, milled grains, hydrogenated oils, artificial sweeteners, artificial food colors, artificial flavorings, and other similar ingredients. Unlike most other popular weight-loss programs, there is no counting required for practitioners of the Natural Foods Diet.

Note that Sucanat, Stevia, raw honey, and maple syrup are allowed as sweeteners as they are non-processed and all natural. Sea salt is also preferred

over table salt.

Proponents of the natural foods diet argue

that unnatural ingredients promote obesity, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and mood problems.

The refined, degerminated, demineralized and devitalized foods are a curse to us all. When the miller makes white flour, he takes out the vital portion, or the part that makes a new plant-the wheat germ, and also the bran. It is the part that contains the minerals and vitamins which supply our bodies with blood-making material. A lot of the foods that we eat on a daily basis have been treated in the same manner.

However, it is fair to say that, in the beginning, fruits, grains, and nuts grew all the year around. Therefore, there was no need to can, cook, bake, as we so obviously have to do today.

The wheat, rye, barley, oats, beans, and nuts were never hard and dry as they are now. Fresh fruits and grains grew the year around, and they were eaten in their milky or grape-sugar state, in which they needed scarcely any digestion, like our green corn.

Fresh, cleanly prepared raw vegetable juices are excellent to supply the body with natural minerals, salt, and vitamins.
