The Effect of Raw Food Diet on the Weight Loss

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Raw food diet comprises of food derived from plants. These contain a lot of fiber and water. Therefore, you cannot over eat raw food even if you want to. Your stomach will get filled up very fast due to the presence of such high amounts of water and fiber. On top of this, the calorie count of raw food is very low. It is much lower than the calorie count of normal diet. Therefore, weight loss is brought about by consumption of raw diet.

It is always better to ear raw food as the nutritional content of raw food is much higher than normal food.

You should never underfeed yourself. It is your duty to give your body sufficient nutrition. The nutrients that are required by the body are required for several purposes. Some of the purposes being:

• cell repair,
• cell growth,
• cell regeneration,
• healing,
• metabolic processes,
• production of hormones and enzymes,
• Fighting against external invaders.

Sometimes we go on eating and eating but we still feel very hungry. Why does this happen? If you consume junk food most of the time, you are depriving your body from the essential nutrients that it requires. Most of the junk foods such as burgers, French fries, pastries contain very high amounts of saturated fats and very low amounts of nutrients. Therefore, the body is getting deprived of the nutrients. The junk that you eat will remain in your body for some hours. After that you will again feel hungry. When people feel hungry, they stuff themselves with more junk such as potato chips; all kinds of fries etc. junk foods are very addictive. Once you eat, you go on eating.

When you are on raw food diet, this does not happen. You feel hungry after a long time. When you do so, you consume healthy food which consists of very low calories.

Some of the ingredients found in raw foods are:

• vitamins,
• minerals,
• enzymes,
• Phytochemicals
• other vital nutrients

The world is inhabited with people who are fat and at the same time undernourished.

Your digestion improves remarkably when you are on a raw diet. The raw food that you consume consists of enzymes. These enzymes get destroyed on cooking. Since the digestion process becomes fast, so does weight loss.

There are plenty of other advantages of going on a raw diet. Several diseases like cardiac diseases, cancer, stomach ailments can be avoided by adopting a raw diet plan. A raw diet plan is also called a raw diet paradox. This is because in this process you eat a lot and lose weight.

Detoxification of the body is brought about raw diet plan. The toxins and other accumulations of the body are eliminated and the system is cleared. Detoxification of the body is important for weight loss.

Food Hygiene Course in Food Industry

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Two new and exciting courses have come about in an effort to standardise safety in the food industry in Australia. Food Hygiene is a course that can be undertaken by anyone working in the food industry to give a clear understanding of what is required of them and others while working in the food industry.

Although it is would be best for every member to have done a Food Hygiene Course, it is acceptable for someone to work without a Food Hygiene course certificate as long as they are being directly supervised by someone holding the Food Safety Certificate. This should only ever be done on an interim basis until the employee can undertake the Food Hygiene Course, because everyone knowing firsthand what is required of them is the safest and most thorough way of avoiding any food hygiene hazards from occurring.

If you are looking for a job in the food industry I would highly recommend obtaining one or both of these courses, it will put you in good stead for the job your hoping to get. Or even if you are not sure of the job for you, this short course is easy to do and will be one more thing to add to your resume. The food industry has made a huge improvement with these new courses and everyone should take advantage of the new trainable knowledge now available.

It is very easy to obtain both these courses. You can do them online or face to face, and if you are having troubles most good RTO’s (Registered Training Organisations) will be there to help you through the course as its there good to train you, not fail you. Online courses have come a long way and doing your training online will not only be more convenient for you and your employer, but you will learn a lot more in an online course then you would in a crowded face to face room. Its a personal experience with video and graphic aids to make sure you finish the course knowing exactly what is required of you at the end. Online courses still require the same identification as face to face courses, usually the only difference is emailing or faxing off your ID and your stat dec saying it was you who did the course in question.
