Figuring out how to stop sugar cravings may seem like an impossible task but with guidance and knowledge you can reach your goals. The reason a raw food detox diet helps is simple. (And by the way, you don’t have to live 100% raw to get the benefits.) A raw food detox diet allows your body to heal from eating patterns and addictions as well as soothes your nervous system.
Imagine that you are an athlete and your game has been compromised. You would seek the assistance of a coach to help change the pattern or weakness thus improving your game. In this case, your frazzled nervous system throws your game off. A raw food detox diet is the coach that helps you become very aware of your habits, supports a change in them, and develops a better game plan for you.
