Commonly Asked Questions

1. Do I have to be 100% raw to start having more energy and bettering my health?

Absolutely not. I’m not a 100% raw, nor are many of our EFE clients. That’s not the goal of this program. Nonetheless, we’ve all transformed our health and energy levels by following some pretty simply nutrition principles that you too can benefit from.

For example, if you want more energy then you need to start by minimizing or avoiding “clogging” foods like wheat, dairy, and sugar, while adding in more fruits and vegetables.
Sounds simple, I know. But it works – every time. It’s done so for more than 65,000 of our clients around the world and it can do the same for you.

Stay natural. Stick to foods that are fresh. Avoid boxed and packaged food. When you do so, you inevitably eat more natural whole foods – namely fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. If you want to eat the occasional piece of meat, then that’s up to you.

When it comes to energy, the goal is to alkalize your body by getting lots of veggies and fruit into your body. These are the very foods that will help restore your body’s natural state of vitality.

I recommend focusing on eating LOTS of green leafy veggies. Kale, Swiss Chard, collard greens, spinach, and others are the true key to ultimate energy and health.

A simple way to do so is by making at least one green salad each day and/or making a green smoothie. Eating more raw plant foods doesn’t need to be complicated or tedious.

The simplest approach is usually the best.

 

2. I'm a busy person. Won't these healthy meals take forever to make?

I completely understand your concern. In fact, when I first ventured into raw foods several years ago I was so disappointed by all the overwhelming and time-intensive recipes.

Many of them required tons of exotic ingredients and required up to 48 hours to make in some cases. I didn’t, and still don’t, have that time to dedicate to preparing my meals.

That’s why the 120 recipes I’ve laid out for you in Eating for Energy take no more than 10 minutes to prepare.

This simplistic approach to eating healthier has been one of the highlights among most of our clients. They love that they can prepare simple and delicious raw meals for them and their families with everyday ingredients….in a jiffy.

It couldn’t be easier


3. What If I don't have all the ingredients or necessary equipment?

Do you have access to a grocery store? Does your grocery store carry fresh produce, raw nuts and seeds?

If so, then that’s all you need.

And even if you can find a one or two ingredients (depending on where you live) you can simply substitute for another similar ingredient or food. For instance, if you don’t access to kale, then simply use spinach or Swiss chard.

If you can’t find goji berries – not that you really need them – who cares. Just eat any other kind of berry. The benefits are very similar.

When it comes to the kitchen equipment required to prepare these delicious recipes, all you’ll need is a knife, food processor, blender, and a juicer is a bonus.

That’s it.

You don’t even need your oven or stovetop. Instead, you can save that extra money you
would have spent on your gas or electric bill and put it towards healthier foods…if you want.


4. Is their scientfic proof that eating more raw plants foods will improve my health and energy levels?

Is there ever! In fact,try finding a research study that shows that eating more fruits and
vegetables is NOT good for your health.

You see, your body was naturally designed to thrive on foods that come from the earth.
It’s amazing how disconnected we’ve become from this fact.

Eating man-made foods is not going to make you healthier. Relying on coffee or energy drinks is not going to give you the sustained all-day energy you want.

And although I can throw study after study at you, the ONLY way this will truly make sense for you is by trying it for yourself.

Apply just a few of the natural nutrition principles in Eating for Energy and you’ll notice a significant boost in your energy levels, mental clarity, and so much more. You’ll sleep better, wake up earlier, last longer throughout the day, and you’ll even notice a few stubborn inches of fat melt away.

In fact, I can almost guarantee that you’ll notice these results in less than 5 days time. I’ve seen it time and time with thousands of our clients.

5. What If I fail?

As long as you try you cannot fail. The only time you fail is when you give up hope in yourself. No matter what has happened to you in the past…no matter what other diets you may have tried…

The fact remains – the only way to look and feel the way you want is by experimenting with
different approaches until you find what works best for you.

Is Eating for Energy right for 100% of the people on this planet? Probably not, but it will surely help EVERYONE who applies at least some of its fundamental nutrition principles.

You will never be a failure by trying something new. Failures are those who are too afraid to even start.

 

6. What if I already eat pretty well?

Then that’s great – keep doing what you’re doing. But let me ask you…

“How do you know you’re really eating well? Who says…your doctor or your body’s level of health and vitality?”

I’m a firm believer in the Japanese philosophy of Kaizen, which basically means constant, never-ending improvement.

No matter where you are in life, it’s important to continue growing and improving and learning new things about yourself.

Several years ago, I was 100% raw for several months. At the same time, that’s what was right for me. Today, I’ve modified my diet to suit my current needs. So I follow the Eating for Energy principles of eating more raw foods about 80% of the time.

I still allow myself a little wiggle room for the meat and eggs when I desire them (usually about twice per week) and some other “leisure food” treats every now and again.

Eating for Energy is not a fanatical approach to eating well. It’s about fortifying your diet with the best possible choices, minimizing foods that are hurting your body, and finding a balance that works best for you.

Plus, if you already eat well, that tells me that you’re a health conscious individual. It naturally follows then that you are probably more likely to seek out new ways of taking your health and energy to new heights.

Am I right?

If so, then Eating for Energy is the program to take your health to that next level.

 

7. Where will I get my protein, calcium, and B12 from if I'm eating plant based foods?

Ah…the famous question has made an appearance. I knew it wouldn’t be long before
someone asked me about this.

For the sake of time, I’m going to fully explain this here since I give you all the scientific backing in the program for how you can get ample protein and calcium from a predominantly plant-based diet.

But no one ever said you could never eat animal products ever again, right?

That’s up to you.

However, let’s just assume you decided to go 100% raw vegan for the rest of your life. Could your body thrive on plant foods? The short answer is YES.

Look at the strongest and largest animals – the elephant, the giraffe, the gorilla, the cow, the hippo…

What do they all have in common?

They are all vegetarians. They eat grass, leaves, and berries (the gorilla) in their natural environment. Do you see them losing muscle mass? Are they sick and unhealthy? Not
really. Not until we capture them and start feeding them our laboratory designed “man-made” foods.

Cow’s produce milk and milk “supposedly” provides humans with ample calcium (a big myth that completely debunk inside EFE).

But where do cows get their calcium? What do they eat?
Grass.

…A little something for you to think about.

The only nutrient that you would fall short of following a strictly 100% raw vegan diet for the rest of your life is B12, which is found solely in animals.

So what do you do? Well, you have 2 options…

1. You can get a shot of methylcobalamin (best form of supplemental B12) from your local naturopath, OR…

2. Eat a piece of red meat or organ meat once every few months.

Some sources also show that bee products (ie. bee pollen, royal jelly, manuka honey) contain some B12 so that can be another option for your B12 needs.

I know this debate will rage on for centuries but once you understand how you much protein your body actually needs (about 0.8 g/kg of bodyweight) and how easily you can attain that through specific foods you’ll learn about in Eating for Energy, you’ll finally have some peace of mind.


8. What kind of results can I expect and how long until I see or experience them?

We all respond to foods in our own unique ways depending on our genetic make-up, food
sensitivities, digestive strength, and much more.

But with that said, it’s amazing how predictably human beings respond to eating more raw foods.

When I’m asked what my secret is for having more energy – almost overnight – and losing weight more easily, I always say…

Eat more raw foods.

You’ll see for yourself how powerful these natural foods are once you incorporate into your diet for just a few days.

In addition to having WAY MORE energy and losing weight more easily, many of our 65,000+ clients have also noticed many of the following changes within the FIRST 5 DAYS of following Eating for Energy:

;; Greater mental clarity

;; Improved concentration

;; Fewer cravings

;; Greater satiety after meals

;; Better quality sleep

;; Easier time waking up in the morning

;; Improved blood sugar control

;; Feeling happier and more at peace

And more.

Again, your experiences might be the same or slightly different but you WILL experience something truly amazing with Eating for Energy.

I guarantee it!
