RAW NUTRITIONAL ANALYSIS II SPRING ATHLETE’S DIET

By Tonya Kay and Joanna Steven

Foreword by Joanna Steven This new eBook is both a continuation of the first one, and a completely new concept. While the first eBook focused on the reasons why the raw diet is perfectly healthy and aimed to put an end to the various misconceptions such as “you can't get enough protein on a raw vegan diet”, this follow-up shows that not only is a raw diet healthy, it is one of the healthiest diets available. The studies referred to are from recognized medical schools and institutions. Those who believe in the benefit of a raw vegan diet already know these statements to be true since they have experienced the results firsthand. However, newcomers as well as skeptics will not be satisfied with simple anecdotal evidence. This is where the studies come in. Many people believe that as long as we satisfy our body's requirements for protein, calcium, iron, etc., we should be healthy. However fulfilling our nutritional needs is only the tip of the iceberg. Not only should we get all the building blocks required for great health, we should also get them from high quality sources. Let's take protein for example. Everyone knows we can satisfy our need for protein by eating red meat. However, is red meat a high quality source of protein? It certainly has all the necessary amino acids yet it is more difficult to digest, is a poor source of other important nutrients such as omega 3 fatty acids and is entirely devoid of fiber. It also has a negative impact on the environment, and is increasingly full of antibiotics and hormones.

Comparing one serving of 70% lean beef with 4 tablespoons of raw hemp seeds, we can see that both provide the same amount of protein (22 g). However beef supplies 31% saturated fat versus 6% for hemp seeds, 25% of cholesterol, while hemp is cholesterol free, 12% of iron versus 40% in hemp seeds, and only 15.3 mg of Omega 3 and 342 mg of Omega 6 fatty acids while only 4 tablespoons of hemp seeds provide 4000 mg of Omega 3 and 12,400 mg of Omega 6 fatty acids (all percentages are based on the FDA's required daily values). The raw vegan diet aims to find ingredients that aren't detrimental to the environment while satisfying several nutritional needs at once. It is true that some raw foodists enjoy meals that take a long time to prepare, however such recipes are not part of this book nor were they part of the previous one. In addition, since most ingredients are very nutritious, a lower amount of calories needs to be consumed in order to reach the FDA requirement for all vitamins and minerals. While this month is based on Tonya Kay's Spring Athlete’s diet, all the information provided can be easily applied to her autumn diet. And finally, since many believe the FDA protein requirement is too low for athletic individuals (some of them eat as much as twice their weight in grams of protein!) this eBook aims to show that not only can sedentary people successfully follow a raw vegan diet, high performance athletes can do the same, without needing supplements.

Closed mindedness limits possibility and is worse for health and the environment than any slice of cheese pizza. I should have crumbled. Two years progressed on the road. "I was vegetarian until I started traveling. either from the weight of those expensive blenders and juicers in my carry-on or from the anemic lethargy a plant-based diet reputably implies. Rather. STOMP. I am a professional dancer." This eBook is not intended to convert the world to a raw vegan lifestyle. And succeeding at it. Dogma lives only in the closed mind. and put an end to the excuses that prevent you from trying something new. I wish to bring possibility back to your life. That would suggest that I think I know what's best for every body and let me tell you straight forward . and my scenario was dramatically different than the athletic world would expect. According to popular opinion. signing autographs in a new time zone weekly. Yet friends and fans. this eBook is intended to free your mind. my energy skyrocketed and my strength increased dynamically. help you find where you had unknowingly harbored some dietary dogma yourself.Foreword by Tonya Kay I went raw at the same time I set out on tour in the most athletically strenuous production I've ever performed in. ."

I have since consciously reduced the sodium I was consuming and experimented with a lower fat intake (though you can see. to see what spring brings a mature athlete whose main interest in all things. so you can imagine how the nutritional analysis of autumn. that it's short for carbohydrate and what a carbohydrate does in my body. by no means do I follow a restricted fat diet). we aren't sustainable.. Sustainability is the key. Eating is one of our most natural functions and when we are eating naturally. And I love to dance and eat so much that I intend on doing them my entire life. .. I enjoy eating local and in-season. This eBook will be similar in that it is a 28 day glimpse into my actual diet. plan diets or combine a complete protein. which you will see was in maintenance mode (rather than rehearsal or new skill mode) and that the 28 day glimpse is from an entirely different season of the year. with its apples. is sustainability. I too learned loads from making myself a public guinea pig for the writing of the original analysis. This eBook will be different in that it also logs my athletic activity. kiwi and avocados.I often thank the Whatitis that I became vegetarian before I understood what a carb was. This eBook is a follow up to Joanna Steven and my groundbreaking Raw Nutritional Analysis: Autumn's Diet. pears and avocados could vary dramatically from spring's strawberries. Considering the data from that eBook. When we train to the point of injury or work out really hard only twice a month when we eat too little or purchase superfoods we can't afford. I've grown up quite healthfully as an athlete without ever having to supplement. Avocados . from training to diet.

Let's give gratitude. It should be colorful. This is the beauty of the Earth directly creating our raw vegan bodies.I wish for everyone reading this eBook the freedom I had growing up a young vegetarian athlete not knowing the "rules". sensual. after all. It should be open minded. nourishing and above all. pleasurable. and when we're full. eat because we love to eat. Eating should be effortless. let's get out of the kitchen and live our lives! .

No More Obese Teenagers I went raw because ... everything in my life was leading up to that moment and always still is. But really. In retrospect, I went raw more than anything because as I was deciding to come off medications for Manic Depression for the third and in my intentions; final time. I wanted to become healthy. Whatever that meant. I had no idea. The only thing I knew then was what healthy wasn't. I had myself as an example. Raw foods make me feel good. Emotionally/intellectually. I eat raw food not because someday in the future I might not die the same way a burgerchomper might, but because eating raw food makes me feel good right now. And if I knew I only had one year to live, I would still eat raw food every day that year because it gives me that much joy every day right now it's a great way to live. Yet, I'm about to talk to you about something else that makes me feel as good - or better even - than eating raw food. After two years raw a lot of 401-fooders find that they are indeed more energetic, more resilient, have shed pasta puff, are better spiritual magickians and are running consistently at a higher vibration whateverthatmeans. Vibrating totally high like sunshine. The sunshine we eat. So full on sunshine, now what? We got here because we wondered to ourselves, "how good can it get?" and that intrinsic inborn instinct in us does not go away once we're raw. It amplifies. HOW GOOD CAN IT GET?!?

Serotonin is released during exercise. I paid high costs for seven years of toxic medication to "treat" Manic Depression when ... every time I exercised I felt better than the anti-epileptics ever did. I felt that natural seratonin release. If you want to take your health to the next level, an exertive and consistent physical play program is good for your now visible raw muscles. They shape. They work. The communicate with you. An exercise program is good for your Lover. They run clean. They look sexy. They love getting to know your body running clean and looking sexy when you both work out together. Dancing, hiking, roller skating, surfing, building, biking and a rotating combination of all of the above are good for your body, your Lover's body, your father's body and your daughter's body. No more obese teenagers. They learn how by watching YOU before you thought they were old enough to comprehend. Do situps while you talk to your family. Get them used to it. Stretch in the grass at the public park. Show others how. Give people you don't even know permission to do what their bodies, too, are calling for. Isn't your world better when everyone in it stretches and feels good, too? No more bad mood bosses.

Then you don't feel so high school wondering if you "have the right" to use your body in public. You don't need a gym pass for permission, but if that is the trick, then for goodness sake do it. I use my body not because I am trying to prevent some future ailment, or to lose weight (although all of the above are beneficial side effects to exercise as medicine) - I use my body because it literally makes me happy. Right now. And if I knew I had one more year to live, I'd do sits up several times every week until I died because ... it feels god to be in a body that does sit ups. It's as simple as that.

And I can't wait to do it again.if we use our food and our bodies to assist it in what it does naturally. I feel good. Who needs anti-depressant and mood stabilizing "medications" when our brain works perfectly fine . Life makes sense when I play physically. I get higher when I exercise than after a three day wheatgrass cleanse. I get high and then I rest. And I don't have to take my pulse rate or watch the timer or measure anything when I am exercising. My lungs are large and capable and my heart is powerful and responsive and my brain produces skyrocket serotonin. I am high when I exercise.I don't like to work out. Using my body keeps my brain happy. I don't like to hurt and I don't like to force routines upon my flow. I don't like anything with the word work in it in fact. How good can it get? It’s time to go to the next level. And my emotions flowing. Because it IS the moment in my day that time ceases and I feel all my rhythms coming together. And my sweat pure fruit water. . So I find endless games to play that involve my body.

just like those on the Standard American Diet associate meat with protein and milk with calcium. it is important to note that because she exercises regularly and does not eat as much protein as Standard American dieters. raw vegans associate (among other things) hemp with protein and sesame and chia seeds with calcium.

Indeed. Also. Just like protein without exercise won't build muscle mass. the USRDA for calcium takes in consideration the fact that most people eat an unnecessarily high amount of animal protein. the calcium average is slightly lower than it should be. Like in the previous eBook. two nutrients people are concerned about when they think of a vegetarian diet.
