Cherie Soria has lived this lifestyle for decades. As the reviewer above noted, she looks at least twenty years younger than her 60-something age.
Coming from a person like her, you can rest assured that this is not a fad, unbalanced diet. She is a vibrant, healthy, energetic person.

What I particularly like is that she has a great deal of sympathy and understanding of the challenges facing a person who is struggling with their weight and their health, and understands how intimidating it is to make that huge transition from a Standard American Diet to mostly raw vegan.

The best thing about the book is that each day's eating is completely laid out, so you don't have to fill your head with planning and making decisions. Just do what she says, and you'll very quickly 'get it' - because in the end, it's all very very simple. And you will feel so much healthier and cleaner (not to mention thinner!) very quickly. Within days. Once you 'get it', it's easy to use the book as a guide for taking over and planning for yourself.

There are lots of great raw cookbooks out there, but this explains the basics of what to eat, how much and when. So it's great for beginners.

She doesn't insist that you eat 100% raw, and has great suggestions for common concerns like cold weather, travelling, and eating out.

The book is very well-researched, and has a great deal of scientific information if you want it. There are easy to use charts. And she explains the big 'protein question' that always comes up - ie how do you get enough.

There are recipes for nutrient-packed and yet simple to prepare foods, with great sympathy for those of us who don't have a lot of time in the day.

"The Raw Revolution Diet" markets itself as a weight loss diet, which in some ways is a shame because the second half of the book is one of the best raw foods "cookbooks" on the market. If you're looking for a 5-star raw foods cookbook of mostly beginner and intermediate level recipes, then do not hesitate to buy this book! However, most people who come to Living Light (Cherie Soria's raw foods school) and need to lose weight, do lose weight on a raw foods diet.

The first half of the book is what I consider to be a 4-star book on vegan raw foods nutrition, weight loss and lifestyle. While I definitely recommend this book for raw foods nutrition and weight loss, the truth is that the very intelligent and knowledgeable vegan dietitians, Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina are capable of doing a more thorough job than presented in this book. Although they no doubt did many hours of research and discuss many studies on the advantages of a raw foods diet, the book references none of them! Without so much as a footnote or even author name, the reader is unable to evaluate these studies for her/himself.

As with their other books on vegan (and vegetarian) nutrition, Brenda and Vesanto cover macro (fat, protein and carbohydrates), and selected micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) of interest to vegans. Unfortunately, while their level of coverage may have sufficed about 10 years ago, there are a few gaps for the 2009 reader:

*Vitamin B12 - While otherwise extensive coverage, not a word is mentioned about which form to buy as a supplement. Health food stores commonly sell the better absorbed/shorter shelf-life methylcobalamin, as well as the less expensive cyanocobalamin.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am surprised that this book has not already been reviewed. It unlike anything on raw food. It gives details of the diet from Cherie who walks the walk. When reading this book I became amazed. I saw Cherie at a booth during a Vegetarian Event last year. I thought she was around my age. In reading the book she is old enough to be my mother. That is an endorsement for this book. She must be in her mid 60's.

Of the recipes I have tried the cashew yogurt worked and tasted good. The zucchini hummus will be made again this week. I have shared the mexican-style seasoned cabbage with people at worked and everyone loves it.

The two other authors Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina give a thoughtful and scientific basis for raw food. Becoming Vegan by these authors is a wonderful book that any vegan should have.

This is an excellent book for health, weight loss and potentially a plethora of physical ailments. I know people who have cured everything from migraines to IBS following this plan. The information is solid, reliably cited and the recipes...to die for. I especially like the zucchini hummus, tastes just like the authentic middle eastern version, minus the gas! If you want to feel better, look better and eat delicious food while getting there, get this book. It's worth it.

Format: Paperback
This is my third raw food cookbook trial, but only the second one I actually want to use. The first was the Raw 50, which didn't capture my attention, the second was Ani's Raw Food Kitchen, which offers simpler recipes that I found some natural appeal in, and now I find myself with this book in my hands, wishing I had discovered something like it many years ago.

I don't think I am uncommon in my foodie ambitions. I want to eat healthier, enjoy good food, and not feel too restricted by any particular diet. I am intrigued by the raw diet, but nowhere near ready to dive in head first. I currently enjoy a salad and a smoothie almost daily, but raw food is still on the lesser half of my diet. It would be great to start incorporating some more raw snacks and the occasional raw meal, but it seems many raw cookbooks are filled with (numerous) sales pitches for the raw diet and time-consuming recipes instead of practical guides and easy recipes that will safely appeal to newbie taste buds.

The Raw Revolution does start by explaining the health benefits of the raw diet, especially from a weight loss perspective. Yet, the book moves on to explain how to get the nutrients you need, the types of food and equipment you will use, and starter menus. All in all, the introduction is 100 pages, and well worth every sentence. Then, the recipes begin ...

The recipes are very unintimidating and any potential questions that a newbie or veteran may have about an ingredient or process are addressed right then and there. But, what I found most fascinating about this cookbook is that it truly isn't focused on being 100% raw.
