LEVEL 1

Detox Transition

 

Personal Profile A Level 1 has been through the other levels at some point before undertaking this level of the Raw Food Detox Diet. A Level 1 has probably spent sufficient time in the kitchen making raw foods fun and delicious. Otherwise he or she has extremely simple tastes and is easily satisfied with nature’s unadulterated banquet. But a Level 1 could also be a gourmand who thoroughly enjoys food and the pleasures of the palate and is successfully marrying that as- pect of themselves with the unrivaled pleasure of living in a clean, lean, vibrant body.
The meal payoffs for a Level 1 are large dinners and desserts. You can eat as much raw ice cream (if you use the recipe in this book) and as many raw treats as you desire.
Level 1’s do not eat much during the day by choice. At this level, you learn that eating makes you less productive and less clear. Green juices and fruits are all you need and desire. If this way of eating doesn’t feel right to you, it ’s not yet time for you to venture into Level 1 territory. You will know you’re ready when it feels pleasurable—not like a form of hardship or deprivation.
To be successful at Level 1, it really helps to be creative with your raw dishes. Knowing how different raw flavors play off one another is critical because, even at this level, you still want your food to be full-flavored, ultra-pleasurable, comforting, and multitextured. The surest way to gain this kind of expertise is simply to practice by making lots of raw recipes like the ones coming up in part III of this book. Like Level 2’s, you will be consuming a lot of raw produce, so find ways to make obtaining high-quality produce easy. Have standing orders for delivery. Keep your fridge well stocked with raw treats.
Do not venture to Level 1 unless you are really ready for it emotionally and physically. A good candidate for Level 1 is a person who feels great at Level 2 and, while extremely dedicated to this dieting style, is not overly obsessive about food. In other words, a Level 1 needs to be care- ful not to look at food as a religion and should absolutely be ready to do some colon therapy if symptoms (i.e., sluggishness, headaches, pimples, bouts of moodiness) pop up. It’s a good idea for anyone wishing to reach Level 1 to spend at least one month  at Level 2 first, unless they have been a raw foodist for awhile.
