A weekly feast of celebrity diets with a side of fitness trends

Rawdiculous


Who needs this damn frying pan! Ooo yum, raw nuts…

 

What is the deal with this raw food craze? Whoever invented fire must die (oh wait, he or she probably already is!). You can say bye bye to foods like chicken, beef, eggs

 

Oh wait, that looks pretty raw to me!

Celebs like Alicia Silverstone have adopted this kooky diet because they feel it cleanses their bodies (thanks to not eating processed foods)… but eating a raw vegan diet can lead to serious malnourishment.

 

Whoops… I mean…

The diet is generally 75% fruits and vegetables, which is great (all you chickens out there can rest easy… well until I come along) because raw foodies love to devour seaweed, sprouts, seeds and beans.

 If you see Carol Alt, Uma Thurman or Woody Harrelson drinking alcohol, you can call them out because the raw diet also restricts this consumption.

 

Wait, Uma is drinking in this picture?

What’s the point of this diet? Rawists believe that heating food higher than 118 degrees will kill key enzymes and vitamins in the food they’re eating… I wonder if they go in saunas?

 

I don’t think they can wear these either.

So yeah, this diet sounds measly, right? Exactly… which is why many fear that people who follow this eating trend will not get the proper nutrients, which leads to deficiencies.

Vitamin B12, which is critical for nerve and red blood cell development, is ONLY found in those CUTE LITTLE FARM ANIMALS… and if you don’t eat them… you could acquire anemia (excessive tiredness and bruising) and could become neurologically impaired.

Where’s the mustard?

Not getting enough calcium and healthy fat is another problem with this diet… oh heck, there is just a whole lot of problems with this diet. If you really really do feel the need to go this route though, seek a nutritionist’s advice… not Demi Moores’!

I feel like taking my frying pan and hitting some sense into these raw food celebs! Alright, no, I cannot really tell them what to do… but I can tell myself to… sear up some steak RIGHT NOW!

I love cow

  1. Uma’s knockers look like balloons from hell! They scare me. I am a veggiebite, but I take a B12 supplement to replace what I am missing from the furry farm friends. Too many people go vegetarian/vegan without any knowledge of how to properly eat!

    Shit, I’d drink alcohol and start the raw food diet if I could have DD’s like Uma!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Uma looks pretty healthy to me in that picture…..not sure about her sobriety

  4. Some plants need to be cooked so we can absorb the nutrition, the cell wall is took thick for humans to break down in their digestive system….thus you will absorb more of the calcium from spinach and kale if you gently steam or saute in coconut oil…yum

    Raw food diet is one of the best diet that you can get since it does not involve artifical chemicals on the foods that you will eat. :**’;
