A raw food diet is just that, eating your food uncooked. Believe it or not, there are many people throughout the world who live on a raw food diet. Because of the socialisation of some of us we may find this fact a little repulsive when we think about it, but it’s true. We can look into every culture and find the consumption of some raw food within it. Many Asian cultures, for example, consume raw fish along with raw vegetables with their meals. In the western parts of the world, those who maintain a raw food diet are known as foodists.
