They represent a new group of elite, super-vegan champion athletes, who are raising the competitive bar and setting new records in the world of sports, according to recent press articles. The secret weapon of these super athletes secret weapon is a nutrition coming from almost an exclusively or mainly made up of raw living foods. All of them are dedicated to the live food diet and lifestyle, as it gives them the competitive edge, enabling them to achieve levels of health, strength, speed, stamina and agility that was not available to them before making this diet the center of their training regimen, according to their own comments.
The ranks of professional champion and amateur athletes are growing daily as they are reaping the benefits of utilizing raw live foods to enhance their performance. They understand the raw living foods they’re eating are enzyme rich, loaded with oxygen and nutrient dense, according to what I’ve read about them. With their old diets of mainly cooked food they were missing out on the enzymes and oxygen along with tremendous losses of vitamins and phyto-nutrients.
Enzymes are especially vulnerable to heat and many of them begin to lose their ability to function at 110 degrees Fahrenheit and are completely destroyed when the foods they are in reach 120 degrees Fahrenheit, according to my reading. Once the exogenous enzymes are dead the entire digestion and nutrient assimilation process is left up to the indigenous enzymes to perform these functions, according to the legendary health practitioner Ann Wigmore, NMD.
The problem is that our bodies only have a limited number of enzymes available and as we get older we are not able to make them at the levels that are required for optimum athletic performance, in-fact by the time a human reaches 50 years old they have less than 50% of the indigenous enzymes that they had at 25 years of age, according to my research.
All humans, not just elite athletes need enzymes, which are the organic catalysts responsible for either starting chemical reactions or speeding them up, according to Dr. Ann. Enzymes are also proteins, but unlike other proteins they have innate intelligentsia, according to many scientists. Think of enzymes working much like a traffic cop, in that they direct and regulate the actions of the vitamins, minerals, phyto-nutrient and amino acids sending them along the body’s highways making sure they get off at the right exit. You can also picture them as workers on a house construction site. The vitamins, minerals and other nutrients are the building blocks. As the workers on the house building site the enzymes take the building block to the house and place them where they should go.
Live, raw foods are the only 100% natural, healthy, source of nutrients that have what the body needs so it can function at the highest health levels possible, according to my experience. The enzymes and high levels of oxygen, which athletes require to build and maintain muscles, are only found in raw living foods. Best of all these foods do not have the toxins that are created by cooked foods and as much as 95% of the protein is available from all raw living foods, according to my experience. Athletes who want to perform at the highest levels need high levels of protein and iron. These necessary levels are found in sprouted seeds, grains and nuts which provide athletes with the highest levels of oxygen and bio-available amino acids, which insures high levels of protein and easy bio-availability and assimilation.
Bobby’s ABC’s of Raw Living Food Athlete’s Diet
- 100% Live Foods: Mix and match sprouted seeds nuts and grains. These amazing foods are rich in amino acids, complex carbohydrate, zinc, B vitamins and enzymes. To get the full benefit of these foods, blend them into energy soups or smoothies. See the spouting chart at creativehealthinstitute/blog.com.
- Raw Fruits and Vegetables: Choose from every color of the rainbow! The high antioxidant ratings found in these amazing foods will ward off the toxins that are part of our internal and external environment, according to research arising from original work by Nobel Laureate Otto Warburg. Don’t forget the leafy greens as they are loaded with more bio-available amino acids along with calcium, iron and every vitamin, mineral, &phyto-nutrient your body requires for strength, health and vitality, according to nutritionists. Eat these foods in blended form and your body will not cry out for any kind of vitamin supplementation.
- Probiotics: Healthy bacteria are an essential part of your digestive system. Fermented foods such as rejuvelac, seed cheese and sauerkraut provides super-powerful strains of pro-biotics, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants.
Wishing all of our friends and family the healthiest lives ever!
