Editorial Reviews


Tonya, I want to say how much I loved your book: this is by far the best of your books! I am amazed at your ability to use wit, humor, and word plays in English though it is not your native tongue. Most of all, I really thought there was not much else for me to learn about raw eating! But I got a real paradigm shift from your writing about 'heavy water.' You have indeed dared my husband and I to take this raw diet to a higher level!!! --Susan Schenck, author of The Live Food Factor

Wow! Quantum Eating is amazing! One of the best books on raw foods and living life simply and most healthfully. You are a sheer genius. I am recommending Quantum Eating to absolutely everyone. Congratulations on your research and insights! Would it be alright if I quote you on a couple of things, like the circadian rhythms and perhaps dry fasting? --Karen Ranzi, author of Creating Healthy Children

Dear Tonya, congratulations on your book! I couldn't put it down, it's revolutionary, brave, radical, and well-written! --Victoria Boutenko, author of 12 Steps to Raw Foods and Green for Life

About the Author

Facing several reconstructive hip surgeries to enable her to walk, author Tonya Zavasta sought a way to offset the devastating effects of anesthetics on her health and appearance. Using the same determination and intelligence that allowed her to achieve advanced degrees in engineering and mathematics, she immersed herself in scientific data on health and nutrition. She became more and more convinced that the solution to her lifelong quest for beauty and health was to be found in raw food lifestyle or the Rawsome Diet as she calls it. Tonya has been following the raw food lifestyle since 1997. The raw food lifestyle not only helped her to sail courageously through troublesome times, brought her general health and appearance to an all time best, but also opened a new chapter in her life. Firmly believing that the roots of under-performing and under-achieving lie in feeling and looking less than your best, she is now on a mission: she wants every woman to look and feel beautiful. In her seminars, Tonya Zavasta- a dynamic motivational speaker--delivers unforgettable messages about the possibilities available in personal transformation. Through her own example and lifestyle, she demonstrates how to transform yourself from sick and weak to vigorous and youthful, from plain to beautiful, and from insecure to self-confident. Tonya is the author of seven books on the Rawsome Diet, including Your Right to Be Beautiful, Quantum Eating, Rawsome Flex, and Raw Food and Hot Yoga.

More About the Author

Tonya Zavasta is the author of seven pioneering books on the link between raw foods, optimal health and natural beauty. With a mathematics/science background, Tonya's comfort zone reaches from quantum physics to cellular metabolism to the salad bowl.

Confronted with the necessity of extensive hip surgeries to enable her to walk normally, Tonya sought a lifestyle that would support her recovery and offset the ravages of multiple operations.

Her tireless research led her to the beautifying powers of raw foods, and since the age of 39 Tonya has been following a 100 percent raw food lifestyle. Seventeen years later, she is walking testimony to the power of raw foods to bring out the natural beauty within all of us.

Her books, Your Right to Be Beautiful and Beautiful On Raw are about how to radically improve your life, health and appearance through the raw food lifestyle. Her latest books Quantum Eating and Raw Food and Hot Yoga are an exploration of the most advanced anti-aging practices.

Now in her mid 50s she radiates health in every sense of the word, and teaches "raw eating" all across the world.

If it were possible to give this six stars, I would! Tonya is a true renegade. Her youthful appearance is a testimonial that her diet works. Before I read this book, I thought I had heard it all: the raw food diet,the calorie-restricted longevity diet, fasting, juice dieting, living on prana. But in her book, Tonya combines all of this in a 24-hour cycle!

Tonya points out that eating little is more important than even eating raw. Not only for health, but the spirit: Buddhist monks and nuns don't eat after noon! And it helps with weight loss and general health when most of the food is eaten early in the day. Tonya doesn't eat or drink (even water!) after 2:00 PM, but suggests we start with 6:00 PM and gradually make it earlier.

But don't even think of feeling deprived! Tonya promises us that the pleasure of not eating outweighs the pleasure of eating. "You experience tremendous joy, and feelings of sublime ecstasy come over you. The realization strikes your that this feeling is what you have looked for all your life."

I thought I had heard just about everything, but was so surprised to find out about D2O ("heavy water"), which is not something we want. This was something I had never heard of before.

Tonya uses science from various disciplines to back up her theories, including physics, as well as the meridian channels of Chinese medicine, with the hours the energy passes through them. She mixes in humor with her natural comic nature.

I really liked this book. Even though I am familiar with many concepts presented there I still found it very informational and really inspiring. I've been trying to switch to the 100% raw food diet for many years and failed again and again. This book keeps one very motivated. My problem is I am very thin and every time I try raw food for an extensive period of time I lose weight big time. As a result, my diet is about 70% raw and the rest of it is minimally cooked vegetarian food. I would highly recommend the raw food diet to anyone who needs to lose weight.
Tonya gives very good explanation why we need raw food and how easy it is to be healthy with it. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to have healthy body, more energy, and youthful appearance.

This product was just awesome - the quality of the book itself was better than described by the seller and the content of this book has allowed us to alter our lives. We are fired up and totally engaged in full living. This book has embedded wisdom within. This may not be the first book to start with for many. Try "12 Steps to a Raw Diet, Victoria Boutenko" first but, definitly read this book as the follow up.

Anything she does follow it. Tonya Zavasta is a quantum pioneer, just look at her pictures, and you`ll see everything she "preaches" does work indeed. To follow her recommendation takes courage though, sometimes I wonder if I eat enough, yet I feel good. To stop eating at 2pm no I`m not there yet (it` between 4pm and 5pm) but I`m doing the dry fast average14-17 hours. Sometimes I`m fluctuating between my different raw books and "schools" but somehow I always returning to Zavasta`s ideas and rightly so.

Tonya is an excellent author. She speaks so plainly and in a very personable, interesting, and entertaining fashion. She is very informative and her beauty shows in every way. I appreciate all the information she gives in all of her books including this particular one. She isn't your run-of-the-mill type of raw foodist. I like, too, that all she teaches and the example she sets are based on her love for God.
