Probably the next best thing to having a low fat raw food chef show you how to make these great raw food dishes in your own home! Inspiration, education and gorgeous food, with plenty of new great recipes to help you keep going on raw foods. Professional DVDs with recipes that are not loaded with oil, salt and unhealthy ingredients, so that you feel AMAZING after eating them.
During all that time, the single-most requested product I've been asked to create has always been a DVD series, showing how to make raw food recipes on the screen. One of the biggest problems with the raw food diet is that although it's easy to understand the basic principles, the practical application is very difficult to figure out unless you have someone teaching you in person.
When I decided that it was time to create my own Raw Vegan DVD series, I had only one goal in mind: I wanted to make those DVDs the very best in the world, showing people the essentials of the low-fat raw vegan cuisine. In order to make sure my own DVD series would be at least better than what's already available on the market, I went out and bought every single DVD ever produced on raw vegan cuisine. Every single one of these DVDs presented a very HIGH-FAT, unhealthy raw food cuisine, with 101 variations on how to eat nuts and avocados.
In fact, these DVDS should be relabeled "The Avocado, Nut and Olive Oil Cuisine" as it seemed to me that all of their recipes contained these items. There were no DVDs that showed you how to eat a HEALTHY raw food diet a€” the kind that I recommend a€” one that's low in fat and doesn't contain any added salt or strong condiments, yet is tasty and delicious. Most of their recipes seemed very complicated, with a lot of nuts, dehydration and complex procedures.
The two DVDs in the series literally show every single kind of essential raw food meal you can make.
Throughout the DVD, charts and slides highlight the main points and give additional information. Frederic, I just HAVE to email you to compliment you on the FANTASTIC job you did on these DVDs!!! If that happens to you, then you probably don't have a good arsenal of fat-free recipes you can make. Te second DVD in the series contains the rest of the low-fat cuisine techniques, with recipes incorporating whole foods such as avocados, nuts, seeds, etc. If you're looking for a DVD that will show you how to make high-fat raw versions of every cooked dish on the planet (like pizza or cheese-burger), you will not find what you're looking for in this series.

I loved the simplicity of recreating the recipes in the Low Fat Raw Vegan DVD Series and the tips & tricks to adapt the recipes to your own preferences. As a raw fooder, the DVDs gave me a more enthusiasm for the creativity and variation for presenting my raw foods at meal time. Chris Kendall grew up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, on a self-described standard American diet that included fruits and vegetables as well as meals of pizza and McDonald’s hamburgers. Chris began exploring and discovered a yoga book and Fit for Life by Harvey and Marilyn Diamond. Listen to an mp3 of Chris discussing his journey to raw food and the benefits he’s experienced, among other topics. Then a student at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, Chris experienced a life-changing moment when he met Dr.
Chris counts cherimoyas, cherries, figs, mangos, peaches and persimmons among his favorite fruits but maintains a simple, grateful philosophy for what feeds him. With physical fitness, skateboarding and yoga are the exercise vehicles Chris has gotten the most miles out of and continues to utilize. Chris began exploring yoga in 1999, starting with Hatha and power yoga and moving on to Kundalini yoga, a spinal-based movement yoga. Chris’ raw vocation morphed from a focus on blog posts to videos, the latter of which offer a fun, refreshing take on diet, health and fitness.
For some time during his own transition, Chris found himself experiencing many emotional changes before finding himself at ease in a variety of situations. Chris also suggests transitioning raw fooders seek out support, guidance and good information.

That our species should follow a raw low fat diet is not a new idea, but merely to return to form. Just like cows and horses are designed to eat certain foods as part of their species-specific diets, we, too, are designed to eat certain foods.
Staple foods such as high-calorie bananas (average 105 calories each) help make this lifestyle work. Eating this way can help people prevent and reverse many health challenges such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Eating healthfully is a major factor in feeling sensational, but other factors such as adequate sleep, sunshine and exercise also contribute to well-being. For more information and a guide on how to succeed, check out Alive!, my raw food transition book, which features a four-step program designed to help anyone go raw vegan.
Find out what an average day on a low-fat raw food diet looks like with this sample diet menu! ATHLETE BIO: Harley Johnstone spent his first 24 years battling up-and-down energy levels and a host of maladies including chronic fatigue, asthma, Crohn's disease, hypoglycemia, mild arthritis, sleep disorders, depression, drug addiction, alcohol abuse, anorexia, acne, and more.
Harley also spends time in Thailand training in Muay Thai and doing damage to local supplies of mango, banana, durian, chempedak, passionfruit, mangosteen, etc. When I attended Sports Camp [Health & Fitness Week] in 2006, I learned how important it is to know how to fuel yourself properly and what that looks like in terms of volume and calories. I was vegetarian for one week, then learned about the dairy industry and how unhealthy dairy is, and I went vegan overnight. Freelee (my partner) eats the same lately, as she has upped her weights and cycling program.
I used to crave cooked foods and gourmet high-fat raw foods when I first started, simply because I was undereating fruit and still eating salt. Of course, I'm human, and cooked foods do start to look inviting if I've been training hard and undereating fruits.
Besides diet, food, and nutrition, what other lifestyle factors do you find most important in supporting you in following 811rv?
Do you ever wonder whether you're getting enough (protein, calories, micronutrients of your choosing)? Yeah, I used to wonder, but then I remember how crappy I used to feel on those protein-rich foods and how my body has to fight to thrive in spite of them.
What are some of the personal benefits (excluding athletic performance) you've experienced since transitioning to an 811rv diet?
Increased spirituality, VO2 max, agility, power, endurance, life commitment, passion, life purpose, and clarity of purpose. Compare for us your experiences eating a low-fat raw diet versus the popular high-fat version? Some don't want to train with me, because they feel guilty at the cafe when I'm eating organic fruit and they're ordering a quad latte and three chocolate donuts. Can you tell us about some difficult realities of eating an 811rv diet in a world of SAD eaters? When I stay with people who say, "Oh, we can cater for you, no problem - we eat heaps of fruit too!" THEY HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH I EAT! When training through periods of maximum exertion, what do you eat, and how much per day, typically? Well, my biggest days are 24-hour mountain bike races, and I eat around 7,000 calories during those races.

Can you tell us about any overall athletic performance improvements you've noticed since adopting 811rv? I've objectively increased my VO2 max [maximum oxygen uptake measure of cardiorespiratory endurance] to 78.
What are some of your most notable recent athletic achievements while maintaining a strict 811rv diet? I would have learned about calories sooner, instead of saying, "calorie counting is for Jenny Craig clients!" I train with Tour de France cyclists, and EVERY ONE I've asked knows how many calories they need and how much they burn in training. Do you plan to change anything or do anything differently with your 811rv regimen, going forward? I plan to keep eating my meals early before bedtime and to keep eating a hearty breakfast (fruit, of course). What advice would you give a newbie to 811, or someone who is looking to refine their program? Also, I would like to add that on this 811 path people tend to have super energy like they have never experienced before. I can GET the theory by reading a book, but when it comes to the practical application, I have to SEE how it works. In addition to being difficult to make, the recipes were equally difficult to digest!Last January, along with a crew of professionals, I created my own answer to this lack of good raw vegan DVDs. Every other DVD only teaches high-fat, unhealthy recipes drenched in oils, nuts and avocados. Like a famous chef said "anything will taste good with salt and garlic!" It takes much more imagination and skills to make simple raw foods taste good. The biggest problem with the raw food diet is the tendency people have to consume too much fat on it.
We only focus on the OPTIMAL raw-food diet, by-passing completely the nutritionally inadequate high-fat raw food diet. To anyone who is thinking of ordering these I say: when you receive and view these DVDs, you'll be so glad you did order them. Furthermore, there is just no denying how easy and quickly the food can be prepared and everything looked very delicious. They will play in all North American DVD players and most European and other players, as long as they are set to accept this standard.
Not only was I able to, at last, prepare good recipes but I shared it with my clients (I am a trainer) and the interest was amazing. I own several books on the Raw Cuisine but sure these DVDs are better than all my books together. By trying to reproduce some recipes in the DVDs, it expanded my knowledge of the raw food kingdom and brought me to a higher level of interest with the low fat comprehension and new recipes with no fat at all. When he was 17, he moved out to pursue a skateboarding career and began eating cheap meals such as more McDonald’s fare, TV dinners, dollar-store burritos plus potatoes, rice and eggs.
The latter book served as his introduction to vegetarianism, Natural Hygiene and food combining. His breakfasts and lunches are monomeals, or meals comprising just one kind of food such as fruit. He’s been skating since he was 5 and has pushed his body to its limits, hurling his body down flights of stairs, rolling each ankle 100 times and ripping ligaments in his knees.
Chris married yoga styles in creating Kendallini yoga, which features parts of power, Kundalini and Tibeten rights yoga forms plus martial arts and calisthenics. Whereas Chris once skated many hours every day and practiced yoga for an hour every day, he now is content to do what he feels each day.
The diet itself, so rooted in human beings’ nature and physiology, has become a cinch to practice and revealed other benefits, he said. He then began offering his services as a consultant—over Skype, in person and even living with a transitioning raw fooder.
His life quickly changed upon enjoying these meals in 2010, with Brian going vegan and then low-fat, fruit-based raw vegan to start off 2011. The information presented on this website does not constitute health, medical or any other kind of professional advice and is not intended to replace the advice of medical doctors or other health-care professionals with whom you consult. Enjoy fruits for breakfast, lunch and dinner and any snacks—plus a heaping salad after the fruit dinner.
Counting calories for a while into your raw journey is extremely helpful to learn how many calories you need. It’s about feeling healthy and happy, sparing sentient land and sea creatures their lives and benefiting the planet! Most Asians eat rice with every meal, so there’s nothing wrong with loading up on bananas—even for breakfast, lunch and dinner some days—as long as you enjoy other fruits and get in your greens, too! The reason for this is our natural diet provides optimal conditions for healing and detoxification to occur. For a decade, I suffered from chronic pain, which I reversed utilizing the Egoscue Method before launching an evolving weekly exercise routine—encompassing circuit training using Bodylastics bands, running, practicing vinyasa yoga and rebounding using a Needak rebounder. If you’d like a helping hand in transitioning to a low-fat raw food diet, visit my coaching page. But we like to think we positively change the houses of other people we stay with sometimes. For me that generally means about ten bananas before 9 am, another 20 bananas at noon, and two large heads of lettuce plus two kilos of tomatoes & cucumber before sundown. I never try to turn my banana into a pizza, and I have no need for the emotion-numbing, taste-bud-exciting substances so common in the raw food movement. Conviction to save the planet and make my life count for something more than a pretty face and a nice DVD collection.
I've done my homework now: I've listened to over a thousand hours (literally) of Dr Graham's recordings, so I've been brainwashed enough! Well, being a voice for the voiceless has given me such life purpose that I find it a little challenging to decide where I want to focus my energy. I find the maximum number of calories I can absorb, while still riding well is around 300 per hour. This means eating high-calorie fruits that travel well and can be eaten quickly and easily, like bananas (2 to 4 per hour), dates (3 to 6 per hour), sultanas or raisins (100 grams per hour), or figs (about 4 to 6 per hour).
The 11,000-calorie deficit is consumed in reserve body fat, which I eventually replenish over the following days. I've cycled across Australia, and most importantly, I enjoy movement a lot more, because I see it as a celebration of health, rather than something I "have" to do.
More and more sports stars are learning about the lifestyle and its health benefits and karma, etc. Water hurts to drink, I'm peeing rusty nails, and clearly performance and attitude are out the door. My next stop was another Whole Foods trip and the stop at Williams-Sonoma for the new tools. I was eating my normal salad lunch while watching them for the first time and they made me want to go home and start preparing new meals from ideas from your DVD's.
This is a MUST HAVE DVD set for beginners to establish a sound base as well for raw foodists for elaboration and various types of recipes. Over five years, Chris went vegan and transitioned to a whole-foods diet and realized health improvements.
Dinner for him regularly comprises 2 to 5 pounds of subacid or acid frut such as oranges or pineapple followed by a large stew.
Chris also began running retreats and recently oversaw three retreats, two at Farm of Life in Costa Rica and one at Casa Axis Mundi in Mexico, with Megan Elizabeth. A low-fat raw food diet cannot be successful any other way because vegetables contain too few calories and high-calorie nuts and seeds average 75 percent fat. A low-fat raw diet is rounded out with a minimal amount of other vegetables, nuts and seeds.
You can’t go the distance each day without running out of fuel if you don’t have a fuel gauge. Drinking green smoothies can help pave the way to a raw food lifestyle and ensure you consume enough greens without having to carve out time for a large salad every night!

Includes more than 25 raw food recipes, tool recommendations, fitness focus, insight from Arnold Kauffman and Megan Elizabeth and more! As a 100% raw vegan, Harley has won 24-hour solo mountain bike races, completed many marathons and half marathons, cycled all over the globe, and raced bicycles in Europe.
Never having held a driver's license, Harley fancies himself an automobile-free raw vegan organic athlete, racing to save the planet.
So the attraction was instant and lasting, because we have such high standards about how we live. We exercise only on the days we want to eat and try and do exercises that have meaning, such as cycle commuting or carrying heavy boxes of fruit. During days when I exercise heavily, I eat about twice that much, usually by doubling or tripling my banana consumption. Maybe it was a coincidence, but when I learned how to eat enough calories from fruit to meet my needs, I stopped trying to make raw versions of my favorite cooked foods.
We still notice that durians in that amount don't allow the body the same vigor as a meal of mangos or bananas or oranges. If mainstream people aren't FREAKING out about your lifestyle, then you're probably working in a job you hate, to buy food and junk you don't need.
Fruit is nearly impossible to overeat, because it doesn't stimulate the taste buds like cooked foods do. Get so good that you can walk into a grocery and tell people how many calories they are eating!
I've seen so many people be overwhelmed by this phenomenon and reach for numbing foods that block this energy.
Only an 811er knows the feeling when we decide that numbing our emotions is no longer an option, we will be rewarded for our conviction with contentment. Thousands of thriving raw examples are out there, if you just open your eyes and tune into an attitude of gratitude. Sure, we don't need as much as cooked food eaters or salt eaters, but we still need enough! Thinking we can get all our water from juicy fruits and coconuts is the biggest mistake I see people making. I especially like the fact that you don't use a bunch of exotic ingredients that most raw chefs try to use. If (up to 60 days after your purchase) you aren't 100% convinced that these are the BEST DVDs you've seen on the subject, simply return them and I'll make sure you get an immediate refund of your purchase price.
I also enjoyed the raw food recipes to support colder climates and ingredient selection during these times.
This stew sometimes contains eight to 12 medium-size tomatoes, one or two zucchini, a bunch of bok choy and a few heads of cilantro.
All this said, Chris feels at times as young as he did when he was 16 with the exception of injuries accumulated over his 27-year skateboarding career.
With yoga, he practices some movements every day over five to 20 minutes but completes a full hour only when he teaches, a few times a week or month.
Consuming more than 10 per­cent of calories from protein results in low energy and acid toxemia, a precursor for arthritis and cancer, Graham writes. Count what you put into your body and learn how many calories you need so you can feel “on” all day long, helping you reach all your destinations in life! These drinks can be made simply by adding several bananas, a big handful of greens and water to a blender.
Every species eats monomeals, a single food as a meal, so we’re in no hurry to load up on every nutrient at every meal!
Having raced and trained with Olympic gold medalists, Tour of Italy riders, and Tour de France winners including Lance Armstrong and Oscar Pereiro, Harley continues to compete at the national level in Australian road and ultra-endurance races. Says Harley, "If I can transform from a chronic-fatigue Nintendo zombie to an ultra-endurance mountain bike race winner, totally free of drugs and stimulants, just by learning about my body's daily needs and how to meet them, imagine what others can achieve!Tell us about yourself: your age, where you live, your job, your family, and the like. After a meal of fruit I'm good, and then cooked food starts to look like the stodge it really is!
High fat is nature's slow-down plan: slow you down and fatten you up, so you can survive a possible famine. I like to appear in the newspaper and on television, because I find that it helps people to swallow the message more easily, when they read it in print or see you on a TV show.
I used to miss meals, but that just affected my training recovery and made me look like a weirdo who didn't eat. Anything more than that starts to affect my riding performance, as does anything less than that. I hope my example will lead to more athletes knowing that they can compete powered by fruit and greens and get healthier and stronger every year. It offers clear-cut direction on how to measure calories, what foods to eat, how much to eat, and the other factors which play a role in succeeding on the raw-food diet.
They grab at the water bottle and guzzle some water, and they almost vomit at the pain they experience. We tend to get off track and start fixing meals that take all our time and are not that good for the body, even if they are raw. Chris adds mangos to this stew, chopping up some into cubes and blending the rest with tomatoes and greens.
Eating more than 10 percent of calories from fat leads to diabetes, stroke and cancer, Graham says. Life is so much simpler now, leaving me more time and energy to devote to my partner, family, and clients. As soon as I was on radio for the first time, many very mainstream friends began to take me more seriously. I have officially raced against Tour de France riders - not just trained with them, raced with them.
And if you want to live your life purpose and live a life of happiness, you'll have to stop taking things personally. Rather, transmuting this energy into our life purpose, creativity, relationships, sports, etc.
The Low Fat Raw Vegan DVD Series brings you back to the basics and simplicity of eating a plant base diet. Be sure to explore some recipes from my growing list and join my free mailing list to get more with Fruit-Powered Digest, my e-magazine, and Fruit-Powered Video, my video series. We live in a fruit-phobic society, and anyone who eats more than two oranges in a sitting is seen as having an eating disorder! The only sustainable solution is to become a fruit eater in earnest, ditching the "oh my god, that's too much fruit!" dogma. Some people distance themselves from Internet, radio, TV, etc., but I know these are vey powerful tools for reaching our family and friends. Lots of fruit books talk about why eating fruit is good, but they aren't written by a 100% raw vegan. Kids in Bangladesh can do 811 by drinking coconuts and eating wild bananas and wild tender greens. Taking things personally or being suspect of others' intentions often leads to burnout, while speaking from the heart and trying to combine truth with humor often leads to burning brighter.
So not drinking enough water and living clothed indoors in winter dry air is a MASSIVE hindrance. No wonder two out of three Americans are overweight or obese and diabetes affects one out of three Americans! Rotate greens because they contain alkaloids, which can cause mild poisoning such as numbness if eaten too frequently for too long, Victoria Boutenko writes in Green for Life.
