Photon Approach to Food
on February 17, 2007
Everyone is using the mystery of quantum physics as a mystical metaphor to empower life in general these days and Natalia Rose, author of "The Raw Food Detox Diet" is no exception in her new and equally well-put-together book, "Raw Food Life Force Energy: Enter a Totally New Stratosphere of Weight Loss, Beauty and Health."
In 260 plus pages, Rose re-educates her raw food fans on the further sensibilities of combining foods for easy elimination---reiterating her primary focus in "Detox" that consuming quick exit foods naturally slims the body while "waste" that remains inside the body too long eventually equals weight gain. Rose builds on her idea, explaining with a quasi-quantum physics approach that as everything existing has a vibration, it would make sense to ingest foods that will aid us in vibrating at the high rate in which we are designed to optimally function. High harmonious vibration foods consist of those grown closest to the sun, while inharmonious vibration foods include the usual suspects of cigarettes, liquor, processed, synthetic ingredients, mainstream animal fleshes, pharmaceuticals, radiation, x-rays and less obvious, pasteurized cow milk, yogurt and cheese.
In the first portion of "Raw Food Life Force Energy", Rose defines four principles: vibration, free-flow, quick exit, and natural bliss---all of which reinforce her main premise that eating well combined light to heavy (eating the lightest possible meals in the am while gradually increasing the density of foods so that dinner is the heaviest meal) meals will create a body and mind that remains well-tuned to the best the universe has to offer. The second part of the book presents Rose's 21 day action plan where after prepping your kitchen and shopping for staples through shopping revisions, a typical breakfast consists of a homemade elixir or fresh fruit, lunch a soup, salad or sandwich and dinner either a repeat of a luncheon selection or a cooked meal with raw vegetables. Desserts vary depending on the combination consumed at dinner, i.e. a flesh meal dessert would consist of cheese or dark chocolate. Rose includes a seventeen question test to help you determine your present energy vibe; she promises that whatever your current level, by practicing her techniques, you will feel more "attractive, youthful and emotionally balanced," as you plunge deeper into her program. The actual 21-day guide becomes a little redundant as the selections are basically yours to choose--day one through day 21 repeats with motivational words from Rose to keep you to your task. As in "Raw Food Detox," Part 3 includes Rose's unique and tasty recipes. She follows these with some FAQs to help propel you into a higher vibration; inviting the reader to cordially email her if any specific question is not addressed.
Bottom Line? If you enjoyed Rose's easy transition from heavy slow-moving food to light quick moving energy endowing fuel in her first book, you will definitely enjoy her new slant on a dieting fad that many people have easily embraced as a truly healthy way of life. Recommended to all those who just love Rose's innovative recipes and thrust towards finding the metaphysical answer to understanding our complex makeup as human beings living in an otherwise toxic world.
