Raw Food Not Enough to Feed Big Brains Eating a raw food diet is a recipe for disaster if you're trying to boost your species' brainpower. That's because humans would have to spend more than 9 hours a day eating to get enough energy from unprocessed raw food alone to support our large brains, according to a new study that calculates the energetic costs of growing a bigger brain or body in primates. But our ancestors managed to get enough energy to grow brains that have three times as many neurons as those in apes such as gorillas, chimpanzees, and orangutans. How did they do it? They got cooking, according to a study published online today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. "If you eat only raw food, there are not enough hours in the day to get enough calories to build such a large brain," says Suzana Herculano-Houzel, a neuroscientist at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil who is co-author of the report.

(If you’re more interested in the origins of the second half of that saying, check out this article from Slate.) Anti-Inflammation Diet Compose your meals of approximately 40% carbohydrates, 30% protein and 30% healthy fats. Rotate your foods so that you eat 1 food no more than 5 times per week. Plan your meals ahead of time and try to find at least 10 recipes you enjoy.

Unrefined Plant Food Consumption vs. The Killer Diseases Posted on September 20, 2007 by Joel Fuhrman, M.D. I insist that our low consumption of unrefined plant foods is largely responsible for our dismal mortality statistics.
